‘Pumped Up Kicks’ – Guitar Lesson

WHAT’S INVOLVED IN THE LESSON

Here we have a true modern classic tune by Foster the People. We get a lot of requests for this one by the students, so I thought I’d make a quick tuition video of the main riff! This video focuses entirely on the main riff of the song, not the entire track. However, you can pretty much play this riff over the whole track and it is a surprisingly challenging riff to learn!

DIFFICULTY LEVEL

This riff is a high level beginners riff as it features a little bit of palm muting, some pretty quick lead lines, and an overall groove that must be nailed to get this riff right!
