Good day guitar gurus, Darrin Goodman here with a couple easy guitar riffs tabs for you today.

As a guitar teacher I understand the frustration that new guitarists have when first starting out; knowing what you want to play, but not being able to play it yet. You must crawl before you learn to run, but I always try to find some easy riffs for new students to play along with the stuff you start out on that isn’t always as “cool”.

One of the most recognizable guitar riffs of all time is “Crazy Train” by Ozzy Osbourne. This riff is not only easy to master, but is a great exercise for both hands, not to mention just a really cool riff.


Be sure to start out slowly and build up your speed and don’t forget to use your alternate picking on this one. This is also a great riff to get used to playing with a metronome.


Another great riff is from the song “Chasing Cars” by Snow Patrol. This riff is pretty much the entire song, so here’s your chance to learn a song that you can play almost immediately, but also one that your friends will recognize.


Practice this one by playing it normally and then playing it with palm muting just like the parts on the original song.

There are many other easy guitar riffs that you can play right at first, check out the GuitarControl.com YouTube channel for more easy guitar riff lessons.
