In this lesson I'm going to show you one of the most common substitutions used for rock riffs and rhythm parts. The basic concept is to use a handy inversion of the IV chord for variation over the I chord. You'll recognize this sound of this technique from all different styles of music ranging from blues and country to pop and rock.
