Erotomania - Dream Theater Riff
Cool Guitar Riffs Lesson {Difficulty: 3 of 4}

Erotomania is one of my favorite Dream Theater songs. Itīs the 4th song on the Awake album (their 3rd studio album) released in 1994. A few years back I got the tabs book for this album and the Images and Words and the experience has been outstanding!! John Petrucci is one of the most creative guitarists whose music Iīve had the opportunity to study. Thereīs a great summary on this album on wikipedia. Enjoy this Guitar Riff!

Reptilia - The Strokes Riff
Greatest Guitar Riffs Tutorial
{Difficulty: 2 of 4}

This is a fairly easy guitar riff. The structure is real simple, although it might be a bit challenging getting it up to speed and still sounding clean. I had never heard a song from The Strokes until my cousin selected it for one of our concerts at Steak House Cafe, Santo Domingo. Now we play it all the time.

It has also been one of the most voted songs through the Suggest Song Form, thatīs why I decided to include this guitar riff video even though I had previously recorded the Reptilia Guitar Solo Video for the guitar solo section of the website.
