Welcome to... "Micro-Lesson 114"
This Micro Lesson Jams out on a Classic Rock Riff in the key of "E Minor."
The riff begins from off of an open, "E," 6th string and applies the, "E Power-chord," from the 5th string seventh fret position. The 5th string root, "E," power chord becomes a sus4 before dropping down a whole-step to a, "D," chord prior to the 2nd measure.
Once in second measure, a Pentatonic lick creates a statement that pulls in measure three's, "G and A," power chords.
Measure four not only ties in the keys tonal center tone, (E), as a bass-note, but it also applies a nice turnaround lick on the 2nd and 3rd guitar strings.
Take your time developing the patterns and watch your fingerings closely when building the speed. Use a metronome or drum machine to build speed. Enjoy!
