It’s time to conquer another Christmas classic in this episode of Riffin’ Through Time. We’ll be learning how to play the iconic intro lick from Jingle Bell Rock! This one will pose a bit of challenge since it will require you to employ a few more advanced techniques to add nuance.
To play this riff, you’ll have to use double-stops, sliding, and multi-string bending. It may be worth working on each of those techniques independently before you combine them to play this song. Finger choice is very important as you move through the lick, so feel free to make adjustments to the fingers you use to get it sounding smooth and mistake-free.
