Alejandra Mesliuk: How to Play the Guitar Riff From Cult of Personality

Rhythm Guitar Lesson - How to Play the Guitar Riff From Cult of Personality by Living Colours

In this guitar lesson, our female teacher Alejandra, will teach you a cool guitar riff from the song Cult of personality by Living Colour. 
Living Colour is a New York based band that was formed in 1984. The group style is a cool mix of several styles, such as free jazz, funk, hip hop, hard rock, and heavy metal. 
As we always say, try it very slow at first and start adding speed gradually with a metronome.
Ok, hope this helps and don´t forget to come up with your own ideas, which is the best advice for starting to find `your´ unique sound and style. That is all for today... Also I suggest that you keep enjoying and learning from Alejandra and all the staff at! Where? In our free guitar lessons at

Christie Lenée: new tour dates announced

Christie Lenée: Hello friends!
I was just thinking about the Heart of Music and where it comes from... rhythm starting from the heartbeat and sounds deep in the soul that have drawn me to becoming a composer. I am grateful for the opportunity to write, record, then tour around to share it with people like you!

I've been home in Portland for the past couple of weeks recharging my spirit after 2.5 months on the road- many glorious days in Oregon writing, reading, soaking in the sun, practicing yoga, catching up on 'business' stuff and playing my guitar. What a life!
Back to my other reality:
A publicity campaign is just about to launch for the new instrumental album "Chasing Infinity," officially releasing next Tuesday October, 15th but available now on CD Baby if you'd like to check it out. I'm very proud of the record and thoroughly excited to share it with the world. Here is the link to hear samples:
