Indeed rocking - great to see a new lesson from you Emir!
Cool riffing, Emir! Everyone must study these pentatonic approaches
Excellent stuff Emir!!! \m/:D
Thank you guys
Awesome lesson Emir, very well done !
Great rock lesson! Very cool tone and backing!
I enjoyed that man. I think if I can work out the faster runs, this might be doable. Thanks!
NoSkill, This should be doable for sure with some practicing. I had trouble with these 16th triplets but after a day I was able to play it with no problem
Cool track Emir!
Awesome lesson, master Emir !
you rock! reminded me a little to the chili peppers, in the riff
Great groove Emir
very groovy man!, what guitar do you have over there ? looks very cool!
Some great rocking Emir!
fantastic lesson Emir
great fast runs you have got there
These are the ones you allways think of "what is he playing there, I like to play them too"
Now I finally have time to study them at ease.
I've been looking for a way to practice combining riffs, leads, picking, and pentatonics all at the same time. This one goes on my practice list.
Wow, sounds awesome like always! Unfortunality its to hard for me! But great work Emir!
Great lesson Emir, it,s got a funky pentatonic vibe to it!
Great stuff Emir! This lesson rocks!
Love your phrasing! Also a very tight playing, well done, bro!
Thank you people
This lesson made the bulb in my head a little brighter. If you know what I mean. Something clicked, I guess because I actually know the e minor pentatonic scale. It will take a while longer to play it but it will be fun trying. We are so lucky to have you here.
Awesome riffs Emir!
Awesome playing Emir!
very cool lesson, i must try to learn this one,
Good to see you back doing your thing. Very cool grove you got going there - awesome lesson!
Great and rocking lesson Emir
In good style and useful lesson Emir! Nice job!
Yes Sir, I like this one.
Just because you asked! I will learn this and hope I can learn it well!
GREAT lesson Emir
Really cool riffs, and I might be able to play it after a while as well
Thanks audiopaal, I am sure you can play this with some practicing.
This lesson sounds great and is very inspiring because it's challenging without being impossible. Thanks, Emir! :-)
One of my previous lessons was about Open String Riffing in E Scale. This scale, whether minor pentatonic, blues or combination of both, is very common in rock music as it gives many options for riffing in combination with open strings. May rock legends use this approach such as Ritchie Blackmore, Angus Young etc... Some of the most famous riffs are in the key of E. Think of Whole Lotta Love, Woman From Tokyo, Back in Black... The key of E, especially the power chord, has a very powerful sound on the guitar as that’s our lowest note in a normal tuning.
This time I am showing how to extend riffing in E minor pentatonic mixed with some passing soloing patterns. I wouldn’t really call this one a solo as this is typical rock minor pentatonic riffing in a busier arrangement with some fast rock licks in between. Paul Gilbert uses this approach a lot especially on Mr. Big albums.
Use stronger vibrato when riffing with longer notes on the low 3 strings as this sounds more powerful in this kind of rock style. The whole lesson uses just one scale – E minor pentatonic. Learn this chart in 5 positions and you can do a whole lot more with it.
I hope you will enjoy riffing over this backing track and see you soon with some more rock stuff.
