Hello,

Is there anywhere on Justin's website where there is an explanation on how to read the riffs. I really can't read it, don't know what all the numbers are for ...

Just bought the pop songbook, started with the first song 'Breakeven' and I'd like to try to play the riffs.

Thanks!

It's TAB.

I'm not trying to be a jerk, but you could probably benefit from going through the basics before you attempt the riffs.

Agreeing with JdG here. Sounds to me you are starting at the wrong end of your guitar journey.
If you really want to play the guitar you should throw yourself into the Beginners Course. When you are ready the secrets of TAB will reveal themselves.

The thing is, I already had some lessons from a teacher (live  ;)) before I found out about Justin Guitar on web. So I know how to strum, I know a lot of chords and I can play songs. And I did begin with the lessons of Justin, from the beginning, but I know this already and now I want to learn about riffs, but cannot find it. So thanks for the link. I will definitely look into it!

So... you know how to strum, chords, and play songs yet you don't know how to read tab? Reading tab isn't all that complicated and I would think you would have easily picked it up organically if you can do those other things. I don't know what "learning about riffs" means other than you can 1) look up the tablature or 2)  work them out by ear (which is better for you). There is a Classic Solos section of the website that can teach you some of the more famous lead lines and solos


If "learn about riffs" you mean "play lead guitar" I encourage you to look at Justin's Blues Lead courses on his website.If may be what you are looking for.
