Licks & Riffs : Bruno Mars - Grenade

Report Error

Bruno Mars

In the chorus let's look just at the first few lines, whose repeating chords make a great basis for inventing new riffs. The chords are as follows:



Dm
Bb
F
C




Bruno Mars

Now put the tune and the chords together, repeating your two bar melody. Can you vary that right hand phrase each time it repeats?
