Holy Ben, that is so authentic ;-)
You rock Ben, great lesson
Excellent as usual...true Dio style!!! m/

Ben, You are the best, you always have high quality on your lessons.
Awesome riffing, Ben
thanx once again!! your "in the style of" old school lessons are absolutely fantastic! I love each one and the dio one is another brilliant piece!
THE PROFESSOR As you can hear in this video, shredded expertly by Ben, mixing minor pentatonic scales and the natural minor scale is a powerful combination when learning, writing or soloing over metal tracks. Bands such as Dio, Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath and others all wrote killer riffs and recorded massive solos using a mixture of minor pentatonic and Aeolian modes on the guitar.
To get these crunchy sounds under your fingers, make sure you have a strong handle on the Aeolian Mode for Guitar, as well as a secure understanding of the Minor Pentatonic Scale and it’s role in riffage and lead playing.
