Call and response is one of the easiest techniques to master on the guitar. Begin by playing a simple one bar question on the guitar then answer it with a second riff. Rinse and repeat until the royalty checks to start rolling in.
Sam’s Jam, co-written by 13-year-old Nathan V., is built around a simple call and response guitar riff. The notes are almost identical in both measures, but the rhythm changes.
Also, the entire song is based on a simple four note box called a blues box. Know it. Love it. Be the box.
Finally, the song is written in an ABAB form, and features a major second shift in measure 13. Don’t worry. A major second shift is just a fancy term for move your fingers up to frets and do the exact same thing!
