Benedictus (Song of Zechariah) by the band For Today is an extremely fun riff to play and is much easier than it appears. Check out the video of me playing it (quality isn’t great).
Here is the tab for the intro riff-
The tab is pretty easy to understand, the “/” means a slide. A slide is when you literally slide your hand up or down some frets, without taking pressure off the notes.
This song will help you work on timing as well. If you count it out, it’s based in 3/4. Thats three quarter notes per measure, compared to the most popular time signature, 4/4, having 4 quarter notes per measure.
Practice the jump and pretty soon you’ll be playing this riff way to often! If you have any comments or criticisms let me know below, or leave a comment on the youtube video.
