WONDERHOWTO: Play a simple melodic riff on electric guitar (Dave Weiner)

Here’s this week’s video from site sponsor WonderHowTo, a very cool site which collates ‘how to’ videos from all over the place. 

This week I’ve picked a video by Steve Vai’s rhythm guitarist Dave Weiner, who posts regular ‘Riff of the Week’ features on his site. This video is “How to play a simple melodic riff on electric guitar,” and it reminds me of a series of lessons I teach my students (and which I’ve written about in my instructional column in Mixdown magazine). What I especially like about this video of Dave’s is that it can be applied to players of all skill levels.
By the way, Dave has some gorgeous Ibanez LA Custom Shop seven strings. Want!!!
