Sick Riffs: January Jane’s Mitch Mitchell teaches you a virtuosic acoustic alternate picker

by GuitarDomain

Sick Riffs #64: Get ready to learn another acoustic Sick Riff, as Mitch Mitchell of NYC rock trio January Jane is here to teach you a particularly fresh guitar line. “Fresh” in every sense of the word, the guitarist says he came up with the riff “a couple of minutes [before]” filming the video. He jokes: “We’ll literally be learning it together.”

This half-step-down riff is an excellent opportunity for you to practice your acoustic dexterity, as it’ll require stretching of the fretting hand, alternate picking chops and the ability to string skip. Mitchell plays the fretboard-spanning riff using an Ovation 1712 Custom Balladeer acoustic guitar.
