Riff of the Week: "Drop Dead Legs" by Van Halen

Published on 11 February 2020

Hurrah, it's that time of the week Rockers! We're super excited to launch our new series, Riff of the Week. Every week, we'll be teaching you one of our favourite riffs of the moment - the ones that we can't get out of our head and that are our go-to when we pick up the guitar. You know the ones! 

This week we're jamming out to the absolute classic "Drop Dead Legs" by Van Halen with Jay from our Edinburgh store. This is one of our favourite tracks from 1984 album, and we think you'll agree - it's a cracker! 

So, have your axe at the ready, plug it in, crank up the volume and get ready to rock out.  Who knows this one might be your new party trick! Don't forget to tune in next week for our next Riff of the Week.
