In this famous guitar riffs lesson we are going to take a look at one of the most identifiable songs from Van Halen's debut album "Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love".
The opening guitar riff uses heavily muted arpeggiated picking drenched in the phaser/flange effect that would soon become a Van Halen signature sound.
Be sure to follow along with the picking indications in the video lesson. That will make the intricate guitar intro become a lot easier.
After that we take a quick look at the chorus riff. It was simple enough I though I would just throw it in. ;)
All in all this Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love guitar lesson is probably one of the most accessible of the entire Van Halen catalog.
The main riff may be kinda tricky at first but after a small amount of practice I am sure that just about any level of guitar player can get it up to speed.
Have fun! Carl...
