Write Riffs Like CHON

CHON Riffs - A CHON Guitar Lesson

Some of my own CHON style riffs and licks. In the video I explain what tools I used to write them and how you can use them to play in a similar style. Can you guess which songs inspired each lick? If you would like a Guitar Pro version of all the licks to practice along to, head over to my patreon page, thanks.

Recommended Gear For Those New To Playing Math Rock & Emo Styles

These pieces of gear are a good place to start. A telecaster has that characteristic sound you'll hear on many of your favorite records. Stick it in the middle pickup position, and you'll have that desired sound straight away. The Yamaha THR5 is perfect for home practice, and has a bunch of modulation effects so you can try those out to see if you want to make them as part of your core sound. I have chorus on all the time. A compression pedal is very useful for tapping so I recommend trying one of those out, and lastly an overdrive to add more gain when needed!
