26 Riffs – Artists for every letter of the alphabet

So I was challenged to play 26 riffs, back to back, an artist for every letter of the alphabet. This was difficult to not only play these back to back, but it also difficult to even come up with artists for every letter of the alphabet. Some letters were easy, and I felt bad neglecting some of my favorite bands. “J” has Jimi Hendrix, Jeff Beck, Jane’s Addiction, Journey, Judas Priest, Joe Bonamassa, Jet, Jefferson Starship, and more. Other letters were challenging to come up with an artist: “E”: went with Elton John. Other options were Extreme and uhhh…

Anyway, it was a lot of fun and I hope you enjoy. If so, please subscribe to my YouTube channel. Also, leave me a comment below or on YouTube – I welcome the feedback!
