Lesson ID: A0213
In this guitar lesson, you’ll learn a “muddy” country guitar riff. To play this riff, you’ll need to tune your guitar to drop D tuning (DADGBE), and check out the pick direction symbols in the TAB as you’re learning the riff.
The guitar in this video is a PRS SE P20 acoustic with a tobacco sunburst finish. Definitely worth checking out this guitar if you’re looking for a nice parlor acoustic. I love the tone and it’s super lightweight and fun to play.
If you like the tone of the strings on this guitar, they’re the new Woodtone nickel-infused acoustic guitar strings (12.5 gauge, low tension).
Hope y’all enjoy the lesson! 🤘🤠🤘

Cool beans… Very nice riff there Devin. I have really enjoyed the various techniques and music you have shared for many years.
Hi Devin, I am very appreciative of the many riffs and techniques that you share with us, but things are going slowly here. You mention drop D but how do you do that putting the tuning into a drop D. Sorry for my silly question.
Felix, google a youtube video on how to tune your guitar to Drop D. All it is, is tuning the E string(6th string, thickest string) down a whole stop to a D. Then your in drop D. takes like 10 seconds if that. Use a tuner
I’m a beginner. Less than a year. Love your stuff. Love the drop D tuning! Actually got the lower part of Angelina Baker. Now working on Muddy Drop D Riff. Slow going but I’m getting it! Thank you.
Right on! Sounds like you’re picking everything up quickly. Drop D is one of my favorites also — sounds so full and nice.
