How to Play Riffs and Fills by Claus Levin

We often struggle with going back and forth between two things and a good example of that is the ability to play riffs with fills in between. It seems difficult to shift from rhythm playing to soloing but the reason for that is very simple:

We don’t practice it.

We are focused on learning certain skills individually, but overlook the fact that putting those skills together is a specific and separate thing we need to practice and focus on.

This goes for combining sequences and licks as well as going from one rhythm to another. We also have the challenge when it…

How to Practice 5 Hours a Day!

Did you know that the average US citizen spends over five hours watching TV every day? That’s 77 days a year or over 2 1/2 months of nothing but practicing every waking hour!

You might spend a little less than that, but just imagine if you could watch TV AND practice at the same time without losing time with your family or for relaxation.

If you spend the limited practice time you have by yourself by preparing for TV practice, you can build world class skills in your living room, while being entertained and talking with your friends and family.


How to Practice and Learn Nothing

Here’s another great video by master guitar wizard Claus Levin.

The most intuitive way of going about learning something new is also the most inefficient.

The design of your brain is at least 200.000 years old and it’s built for hunting wild animals with a spear, not for learning something as delicate as playing a guitar.

That’s why most people use caveman strategies to go about getting better on their instrument. This is not for you though. You need to upgrade your brain and get ten times the results in the same amount of time.

This is the true source of talent: Doing…

The science of getting better faster

This is the first in a series of videos that will make you much better faster. Claus Levin has 30 years of insights and experience into the science of fast guitar results so he is worth listening to.

In this video:

The power of focus will absolutely change the way you practice and increase the results you get many times. Try this simple method of practicing and I promise you, you will get results like never before.

What Style of Learning is Best for Playing Guitar?

Hey guys, this is James from Riffmaster Pro back with another weekly guitar tip.

Today I’m going to look at different approaches to learning.

With so many different products out there, all promising to teach you how to play guitar, how do you go about finding one that works to get you results?

It’s said that people remember 10% of what they read, 20% of what they hear, 30% of what they see, 50% of what they see and hear, 70% of what they say and write and 90% of what they do.

Two things for your ears

Two good things for your ears here

1. enhance your ear training,
2. to reduce the Ringing in your ears – Tinnitus! (see below rarely spoken about)

The learning journey of music is always a winding one as we find different influences and sounds that we are attracted to and endeavor to play re create or expand. My personal experience as a musician has taken me down many different paths…

Stairway to heaven solo slowed down on riffmaster pro

Please have a look at the video below. It shows a demo of our software slowing down the solo of “Stairway to Heaven”. This demonstrates how easy you can get your songs slowed down!

And below you can see a video of me playing the main solo at half the speed. You’ll hear the sound as it plays over Riffmaster Pro at that speed, while you see me playing the guitar along as practice.

Hopefully this will inspire you to do the same as well!
