The Riffology is a fantastic compendium of over 130 must-know riffs for every guitarist. Each page of the book contains notation and tab for a riff by artists ranging from AC/DC and Metallica to Queen, Radiohead, U2, Jimi Hendrix and Oasis, also covering blues, funk, soul and even the occasional film and TV theme.

Each riff is presented alongside playing tips, lyric extracts and an irreverent ‘fascinating facts’ section, making this both an instructional tool and a great book to dip in to sharpen your knowledge of music trivia.

You name it, it’s probably in there. Perfect for all guitarists of all ages!

There are similar books out there…but none have the range or depth of The Riffology!
