– blues riff #1 –

Here is my newest video for you! I intended for it to be shorter than it turned out, but I think you will enjoy going through this riff with me. As an added bonus, this time I actually show you how to play the piano. I hope you enjoy this video. This riff is one of my favorites because it is the first jazz/blues riff that I learned and helped me start down the path towards becoming a better musician.

After watching & practicing this you will be able to use it in various songs. And, if you will just take it step-by-step you’ll be able to master this and use it regularly. If you have any questions, just post it in the comments below and I will get back to you. Practice well!

  1. Dan, this is some good stuff! I’m going to master this riff and impress all my friends! Your teaching style is great, btw.

    The next one I want you to teach us is that one you play at the end of songs… that you can’t hear me singing right now. Oh, well. I’ll just keep watching, and I’m sure it’ll come up eventually! Thanks for sharing your mad skills with us!

  2. I’m so excited that I found these videos. I’m going to practice diligently. I’m hoping to take a few leaps forward in skill. Thanks for sharing your knowledge! I just hope it doesn’t take me 16 years to become an acceptable piano player. 🙂
