Muddy Drop D Riff

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! 🤘🤠🤘
