7.1 Beatles Riff

The Beatles; Twist & Shout

There is a real excitement when learning new songs, but these can take time; so here is a “quick win” that is a quick riff you can bang out in no time at all.

It is the intro to Twist and Shout by The Beatles that will test your picking and fretting and start to build up your song, lick and riff library.

It is played on the bottom 3 (E, A and D) strings and based around the 2nd, 3rd and 4th frets. You can play along to our backing track and follow the tab below once you have watched Andy’s instructional videos that include both a note by note instruction and practice session.

You will also learn your first technique to add to your toolkit (albeit on a minor basis) known as string skipping and there is an additional tab below to help you master this, which will also be fully explained by Andy.

You’re now starting to sound cool!!!!


Our goal is to provide you with the training, inspiration, motivation and confidence to become the guitarist you dream of becoming.
