7 Famous Easy Riffs for Beginners
Hey guys! Right, now I know what it's like to be a beginner guitarist: it's kinda boring, right?

You keep on thinking - when can I learn that cool riff? - or you just wanna impress others by saying: "Yeah, I can play Guns N' Roses," or whatever.

So I've put together 7 easy guitar riffs.

But before we begin, the "Sweet Child O' Mine" intro tab is not mine, and the credit should go to the member jake_luvs_bex, as this intro was tabbed by him (I just included it, as it's a pretty good tab).

Enjoy!
