In this guitar lesson video, I will break down the Arctic Monkeys’ smash hit “R U Mine?” in it’s entirety.

In this video guitar lesson, I will show you note-for-note how to play the smash hit “R U Mine?” by the Arctic Monkeys.

As with a lot of the Arctic Monkeys’ music, this song is very riff based with lots of single notes lines that move around quite a bit. This kind of technique, along with an octave pedal creates a huge yet intricate sound. These riffs are also very fun to play once you get them all under your fingers.

Lucky enough for us, there are definitive verse, pre-chorus and chorus sections that repeat. So it might sound like everything is just an endless stream of notes, but there are repeated riffs that you can latch onto. There are a few variations on these riffs, but I will point those out as the come.

With this R U Mine? guitar lesson, I will break down all of these riffs so that they are easy to memorize. On a technical level there isn’t anything here that an intermediate level guitarist can’t handle, I think the memorization of the notes is going to be the biggest hurdle. But I will do my best in this lesson to show you these riffs in an easy to understand and cohesive fashion. 🙂

The Arctic Monkeys have a very identifiable sound. It is very unique and refreshing to hear. “R U Mine?” is a great study into their guitar style.

So I hope you enjoy learning this modern classic by one of the most original sounding bands to come along in a long time.
