Introduction:

He’s the ultimate bad guy, yet somehow became everyone’s favourite Star Wars character – Darth Vader!

Here we are going to look at a simple arrangement of the main riff from the Imperial March, which is Darth Vader’s theme song in Star Wars.

This song uses two strings – so keep a close eye on that picking hand and ensure it’s resting on the body of the guitar.

Notes:

  • Keep this riff broken up into it’s sections
  • Resting your picking hand will greatly help when changing strings
