For MasterThatRiff! #132 we’re looking at how to play the intro to Time to Burn by Giant with none other than Mr Dann Huff on guitar. This is a great piece of AOR rock from the early 90s that arguably didn’t get the recognition it deserved as a result of the changing musical trends of the day. There is some fiery (hah!) guitar playing going on here so tackle those fast sections piece-by-piece to build up the tempo.

If you have any suggestions, lesson requests or would like HELIX patches, Soundslice TAB, extended lessons, behind the scenes etc. check out the mastertheguitar Patreon page.

Thanks for watching, have fun with the riff and if you found the video helpful please consider liking/sharing the video.

Cheers Mark
