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 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.

She Will Be Loved
This song has a really cool bosa nova groove, which is really catchy and fun to play. If you're looking for something different than your usual pop-rock sound, you definitely need to have a look at this song.
We'll be using all fingerpicking in She Will Be Loved, so you won't need your plectrum.
Moves Like Jagger
The song uses a funk guitar rhythm. It's not the easiest song in the world, but by learning it, you will be well on your way to mastering the funk genre.
