Writers distinguish their work with a chosen vocabulary of words and phrases, along with their own creative application of grammar to tell their story and evoke an emotional response from their readers.

Musicians likewise distinguish their improvisations with a chosen vocabulary of riffs (short musical phrases), along with their own creative, thematic approach for connecting them together to tell a story and evoke an emotional response from their listeners.

Riffs are the building blocks of improvisation. Understanding how to create them, connect them, and then build upon them to craft compelling solos is an essential skill set for all musicians. Robben Ford’s Riff Revolution is a thorough examination of riffs for guitarists, with heavy emphasis on the creative process for constructing engaging solos with them.

”When thinking of music as a language, riffs are the statements used to tell a single story. Some stand alone, and some are strung together to convey a broader emotion. In essence, it's statement and resolution; call and response. In this course, we'll work through five blues progressions in a variety of keys, feels, and tempos. For each of them I'll first play through a complete rhythm or solo part, and then break it down for you section by section, riff by riff.”

Robben organized the coursed into 5 main sections, each featuring a popular blues progression, key, and feel. You’ll work through a G Shuffle, a Slow Blues in G, a Minor Blues in A, a Funky Vamp in C#, and a Rhumba in A.

Robben will first demonstrate a multi-chorus solo or rhythm part, over the corresponding rhythm track, and then he’ll break down each chorus emphasizing how the riffs were constructed, performed, and then connected across the entire improvisational performance. 20 performances will be examined across 69 individual breakdowns!
