In this lesson we'll learn a riff that uses the blues scale; pentatonic minor with a flat 5th. This is also very common for those 70s bands to make neat riffs out of single note lines from the blues scale. The contrasting section for this one is a couple of well placed power chord punches! It's a great contrast from the active, busy riffing of the single note scale line.
