Yeah! Nothing beats good old pentatonic riffing - love it Emir
I would suggest that everybody who knows the pentatonic scale (if not - learn it from this lesson's scale diagram) jams around with it and see if you can some up with a riff.
Thx Emir for this lesson
yeah, great lesson Emir! well done man
Awesome riffing - very cool lesson!
Great stuff Emir!!! Funny how in that thread you were talking about Jimmy Page being your favourite Axe Wielder and here is a great lesson along his style of play!!!!
Great stuff Emir, excellent introduction riffing lesson!
Rocking lesson Emir!
Kristofer is quite right. You can make billion riffs out of this scale. Just jam a bit and you'll surely end up with a riff.
impeccable man!! Is a good job ... great lesson .... great song!!!
Great style and lesson!
Very cool job Emir! I might start learning this... Nice
loved that first bit over the A chord really cool, and it really helps that you put what chord is currently played in the video so we could do some improvising over the backing track, great lesson
This was great! Loved your sound!
Loved the lesson. Reminds me Aerosmith!
Reminds me of Carry On Wayward Son by Kansas
Awesome riff lesson Emir! Nice job!
That's a really cool sound, Emir. It's a great jamming lesson! I enjoyed that!
Great riffs! Excellent stuff for beginners
Extra groove Emire
This is great, a classic Emir. Well done
Oooohh Yeah!!! This was the kind of music I grew up with! Very Deep-Purple -ish and very coool !! Great Emir!
Thanks Ivan and Staffy. I love Deep Purple as well
Cool lesson Emir Really some useful rock riffs
Very useful stuff! Love jamming over the backing track.
This is for me. Thanks!
Takes me back to the same stuff I grew up on. This is cool! This tune sounds to me like a cross between ZZ Top and Jeff Beck! Although Jeff Beck is more fusion, it has some of his flavor.
Cool stuff, Emir. I was actually going to ask you to do something new with open string riffs (I often venture into that zone myself and wanted to see what you might come up with), but I refrained due to my other 2 recent requests - I didn't want to be a nuisance. Again, thanks for the input on those subjects. Seems like deja vu. Jam on, bro...
Jeff I grew up on ZZ Top and similar bands. That's always great to play and jam along such riffs
Aaaaah, the 80s, I love it! Awesome! Some Axl Rose singing over this one would be nice, hehe.
Thanks JimmyRare I think his voice would be cool here
Wow, what a cool groove! Well done, Emire
Awesome riffing Emir, great job.
great riffs Emir!
Thanks much Marcus and Vasilije
Hello Emir, ¿could you send me the backing_100bpm in mp3? [email protected]
Very cool riffing I think we need more of these type of lessons!
cool. I love this. Drive is an energy
I have been a huge fan of 80's rock riffing since I first heard of bands like AC/DC, Deep Purple, ZZ Top etc... That was over 20 years ago and I still love to play and jam in that style. This lesson shows a usual riffing approach that such bands used in many popular songs. The key of E gives the best possibility for combining open strings with E pentatonic or blues scale. That's why this lesson is in the key of E although I switch to A and B to close the cycle which is similar to blues or rock 'n' roll progression.
You should feel when to bend G note on the 6th string. That gives that flavor of G minor/major 3rd mixture often heard in this style. I left 1/4 of a bend in the GP file but it's not even that far. This should be 1/8 or almost no bend but slight vibrato. The same goes for G note on the first string. The rest is just combination of alternate picking and some legato for a better note connection. Pay attention on the little slide on the 3rd string. I slide From A to Bb then back to A and pull off in the end to the G open string note. That's a cool little trick that Angus Young uses a lot.
I hope you will have fun jamming over this one. See you soon.
