If you're reading this post, you probably don't need an introduction to Maroon 5. They were formed in 1994 in Los Angeles as a high school band called Kara's Flowers, led by Adam Levine.

It was in 2001, when they added guitarist James Valentine, renamed themselves Maroon 5, and started pursuing a new musical direction, that the band took off. They've released 5 albums to date, and have become world famous thanks to their funk-pop-rock style, and Adam Levine's voice.


You can learn a lot of cool guitar riffs and really improve your rhythm guitar skills from playing Maroon 5 songs, that's why we have several Maroon 5 guitar lessons.

The songs we presently have from the band are:


Sugar guitar lesson Maroon 5

Sugar is a great one to learn, if you need work on your rhythm guitar skills. And trust me, all guitarists need work on their rhythm guitar skills 😀 It's a fact.

This song uses 4 chords which you repeat throughout the entire song. The difficulty of this song really depends on you, since I'll show you the open chord version (where you'll need a capo to play in key), and a barre chord version as well.
