If you’re looking for beginner guitar riffs, then checkout the video lesson below. Colin Daniel has done a nice job of covering this cool beginner blues lick. It comes out of the E pentatonic minor scale, which is an important one to know for players of all levels.

One thing I’d really like to stress for beginner players is to go ahead and learn cool guitar riffs, but make sure you learn the scale that relates to those riffs, and learn how the riffs relate to the scale. Once you know how to do that, then you essentially have everything you need in order to move that riff to any location on the fretboard, which means you can play it in any key you want!
In this manner, simple beginner guitar riffs can be modified to fit pretty much any song or genre you find yourself wanting to play. Once you get a handle on transposing licks, with a little ingenuity you can literally fit them into pretty much anything.
Colin has a free course setup to help beginners learn exactly these principles, and you can get started here.
