Today I’m playing 20 of my favorite guitar riffs by The Black Keys. On a side note, I’ve put Guitar Pro tabs directly in this video to remind you you can download over a thousand tabs if you visit our Patreon page. The Black Keys are an American rock band formed in Akron, Ohio, in 2001. The group consists of Dan Auerbach on guitar and vocals and Patrick Carney on drums. The duo began as an independent act, recording music in basements and self-producing their records, touring extensively begining in small venues in the US, building an underground fanbase, but it wasn’t until they won 6 Grammys for their albums “Brothers” and “El Camino” in 2010 and 2011 respectively, that they became global superstars. The band has a raw blues sound with a modern twist, and it feels very organic when compared to mainstream music today. Dan is also known for playin outrageous guitar rigs, wielding vintage pawn shop guitars. What’s your favorite Black Keys riff, put ’em in the comments!
Arctic Monkeys are an English rock band formed in Sheffield in 2002.
