Rock Riff - 11

You Really

A chord riff from the Kinks classic "You Really Got Me" - this is a great excercise for your barre chords.

The method is to get your F chord at the first fret - relax but keep the shape - move up two frets to G hit that twice then back to F for one hit then back up to G for a final hit which must then be damped by relaxing your left hand just after hitting the chord.

Use your first finger as the guide your'e looking at going between the two chords and try to keep the other three fingers in the shape.

Practice slowly and try to ensure that all the notes are coming out before going for it at full speed.
