You just learned the basic chord progression, and now we'll turn it into a riff. Riffs can be made up of single notes, double stops, chords and rhythms. The important thing is that it sounds intentional and "hooky". Many songs start with the basic chord progression, but it's not a riff until you've made it catchy and into a hook. Let's look at how to do that!
