One of the most widely used scale is the Minor Blues scale or simply Blues scale. Although the title evokes to the Blues genre, this scale can be equally interesting in other genres, especially in Hard and Heavy metal. It is especially interesting when playing riffing, so this lesson is an example of such playing with two guitars, each playing in different octave.
The opening riff is usually the most memorable part of the song and although not always difficult to play, this is a good exercise with short catchy phrases that you can always use.
