If this famous riff lesson we are actually gonna take a look at the first two riffs in "Kashmir" by Led Zeppelin.
Jimmy Page employs the use of DADGAD tuning to create this ominous and stirring riff. There really isn't anything else that sounds like it.
Technically there isn't a lot to worry about in this Kashmir guitar lesson. Except for maybe a slight stretch at the beginning of the riff, everything thing else is just repeated without requiring much fret-hand movement at all.
Led Zeppelin had a way of bringing an all new sound to the world with the legendary guitar work of Jimmy Page. A lot of people will say that perhaps Jimmy Page isn't the most technically gifted guitarist in the world, but he was truly a creative genius who conjured up countless classic riffs and solos. And that my friend, is much more difficult to find than someone who can play a billion notes a minute without mistakes.
The first thing you will need to do is tune your guitar to DADGAD tuning before following along with this Kashmir guitar lesson or the original recording once you have all the parts down.
To do this simply tune your 6th string E down to D. Then tune your 2nd string B down to A followed by tuning your 1st string E down to D.
The strings will then be from the lowest pitched string to the highest pitched string DADGAD.
I hope you guys enjoying learning these riffs. They are simply some of the most unique in all of the classic rock era.
