Tricky Timing

One thing I love in music is when a riff tricks us into thinking that its timing is something other than what it actually is. In this example, the first note I play is not actually on the downbeat, it’s on the “and” of 1. Writing riffs like this is not only a fun way to start a song, but it's an easy way to grab the listener's attention. So give it a listen, give it a try, and have fun.
