    Way to go! this gotta be one of the best tutorials out there, and you seem
    very experienced at teaching, I don’t think I have seen anyone demonstrate
    runs the way you just did, I liked the stairs example and how you use
    midi/piano, really creative..this needs more views

    To all those out there trying to riff, even if you think you fail at it and
    can’t do it at all “Trust me, you can” it just takes practice, it’s like a
    new workout for your muscle (vocal cords) some have more agility and are
    faster naturally and thus learn faster, but even if you’re on the slow
    side, if you’re determined and consistent on the training you’ll will reach
    a point where you can execute some beautiful and innovative riffs and be
    proud of yourself

    *In this exercise go step by step, when you reach a point of it starting to
    get fast for you pause the video and slightly rewind a bit before and start
    over, keep repeating until it becomes easier

    also check out Natalie Weiss’s “Breaking down the riffs” (#BTDR) she’s
    really good

    You’re a really underrated teacher because you’re very good! Every video on
    runs I’ve seen has either never broken it down like this or they didn’t
    explain it well enough. But this helped me a lot so thank you!

  7. Rajdeep Biswas says:

    Hey Saher thank you so much buddy 🙂
    I’ve been looking for these sort of tutorials and most other people on
    youtube keep blabbering on what to do and in the end we don’t learn
    anything productive
    But this is perfect. Today i discovered your first ever tutorial of 2008
    and i watched all 9 of your tutorials already 😀

  8. dontstop831 says:

  15. Seaman Whoopa says:

  16. alexthe guitarkid says:

    what sup Saher Galt i was wondering if you can make a video on warm ups for
    harmonizing. Thank you.

  17. Keith Spencer says:

    WOW! very helpful! i have a question pleaaase answer.. why is it when im
    using falsetto its MUCH easier for me to do runs but using my regular one
    its so hard.. :(

  18. Ronald Gonzalez says:

    I’ve watched tons of riffs and runs video and this is awesome best video
    I’ve seen

  19. Ronald Gonzalez says:

    I think it’s because everyone tries to explain it in their own way. But to
    actually see if visually definitely makes more connections with the brain
    therefore having more success in doing these runs. Seeing it visually
    definitely makes it easier on the brain .

  20. Xepher54321 says:

    practice this an our a so a day.. how long would it take me to sound really

  21. Lexa Terrestrial says:

    You’re definitely right about breaking it down into detail.

  22. Lexa Terrestrial says:


  23. Lexa Terrestrial says:

    important Question!
    Any suggestions on best Placement? and where you should feel the sound
    in order to do RiFF’s the best?

    We should only be doing these from our vocal cords right?!

    sometimes it’s hard to get the vocal cords to move this quickly on there
    own without any help… which is why people make weird movements when doing

    Sometimes i think of swallowing air…
    other times i try to resonate the sound in my nose or front of face..

    Let me know if any of this sounds right..!?

  24. My problem is it still sounds sloppy, the notes aren’t as dissociated as I
    wish they were. Do I just keep practicing because that’s my problem for
    every run. Like Christina Aguilera (sorry for the very obvious reference)
    does runs where every note is so tong and so incredibly spot on dissociated
    from the others that you hear them all perfectly and yet so fast. Can you
    get that type of dissociation from your practice video if we do it every
    day? Thks!

    So…i could o this about two years ago BUT, I’ve been a fan of Ariana
    Grande (since 2009 but that doesn’t matter) and i started to see that she
    moved her jaw every time she did this so i thought it was a good thing,but
    now i know is not,so now i can’t help moving my jaw every time i try to do
    it…how can i change that?

  26. Nguyen Thanh says:

    I hope you can do a video on ascending fast vocal runs. Because I feel that
    riff up is much harder than riff down. Thank you.

  27. Trinity Ross says:

    Probably the most helpful video out there lol

  28. Roman Hulliger says:

    Finally someone who can actually sing on a singing tutorial video!! :)

  29. Collin Spicer says:

    Epona’s song… Legend of Zelda

  30. Spencer Tan says:

    Your lessons are good. MORE BRO!

  31. Helene Steen says:

    This was awesome! Loved the idea of starting with the last notes and then
    adding the rest step by step. Thank you for this super helpful and
    inspiring video!

  32. guppypugs says:

    Fantastic video, thank you so much!

    Train your pupils to sing the consonants clearly otherwise no matter music they may sing their audience will probably be unable to fathom the words of the track.
