As a beginning guitar player it’s good to have some nice easy guitar riffs to help make things fun. Oh yeah, you better learn how to strum and practice those finger exercises…but ya also gotta Rock 🙂
In this video guitar lesson I’m going to show you how to play the beginning guitar riff to the tune “Sunday Bloody Sunday” from U2. This song can be found on U2’s 1983 album “War”. Even if you are beginner guitar player, you should be able to play this with a little practice. I can hear the crowd screaming now…
