So if you’re a new guitarist or Maybe you think you might want to start playing guitar because guitarists are like, kind of sexy… Then this list is for you cause these are some Easy. Ass. Riffs. Or EAR for short. Easy. Ass. Riffs. We’re gonna be looking at a lot of EAR’s today. A-ha! And here it is. Number 10 on our list. *Guitar Playing I Can’t Get No Satisfaction* This riff is so easy, this riff is such an EAR. And I guess it kinda has to be because Keith Richards is like, 117. So he can’t move his fingers quite as fast as he once could back in his prime in 1923. Now this riff, is so easy… You can play it while doing somersaults.. Like a Rolling Stone. HUH? See what I did there? Okay. Alright. Yeah, ‘Kay. *Guitar Playing I Can’t Get No Satisfaction* *Guitar messes up* Well that just happened. Gettin’ too old for these shenanigans. *Plays AC/DC’s Highway to Hell* *Jams continue in the background*
Now Angus Young was probably my biggest guitar inspiration when I first picked up a guitar. And this is one of his easiest riffs ever. To make it even easier, you can turn it into power chords. 🙂 *Plays guitar beautifully* *Uses voice to add angelic vocals behind playing* *Continues to play Highway to Hell while mimicking the beginning of the first verse* And this riff is sssssssssOoo easy!!!!

Or drop A in this case, cause you only need one finger! *Begins playing again* And then you throw in some open string palm mutes and, BAM! You’ve got yourself one of the easiest Slipknot riffs, ever written. You don’t even have to do the palm mutes you could just go, *Lets every open string ring out* (Recommended if starting to learn this riff as a new guitarist) everyone will still know what riff you’re playing. Dan Dan Circumcision! Dan Circumcision! Dan And this riff is so easy, you could play it with gloves on. *ASMRRRR* *Begins playing riff with gloves on* *Continues riff while singing chorus* The fact that I have to take a, pee. *Begins playing riff to Black Sabbath by Black Sabbath So this actually a perfect riff for any guitarists who wanna learn how to do hammer-ons and pull-offs. *Demonstrates* Because of the whole
