Riffs You can Use - Part 19



Lyle: I've got a few simple riffs to show you today.

Lyle: This riff is something that is stuck in my head. I keep messing with this riff which is based off the F#7add11 chord. The riff I'm talking about is found throughout the MP3 sample above and is played right at the intro:





Lyle: I have an echo set at 1200ms for the effect.

Lyle: I created several riffs to jam along with the main lick. I thought I'd show them all to you...Here's the first one:





Lyle: Here's a basic jam track you can use to play these riffs with:



Lyle: Here's another riff that is played at the same time as riff 1. I used multiple tracks to layer the riffs together.





Lyle: Riff 3 is a simple blues type riff:





Lyle: Riffs 1, 2, and 3 used the same tone preset as the intro riff, but with the delay/echo turned off.

Lyle: For the next two riffs turn the delay back on:





Lyle: Riff 5 is a variation of riff 4, plus the intro riff:





Lyle: Listen to this next jam track, it has all 5 riffs being played at the same time. Each riff is panned a little different in the stereo field.



Lyle: Here's a longer jam track with all the riffs in it:



Lyle: Since the jam is centered around the F#7 chord, the F# Mixolydian mode is good to improvise with:



dever: because they both have a b3 and b7?

Lyle: The Mixolydian has a maj3rd and a b7.

Support: oh right

Support: I knew that <g>

Steve: I didn't.

Lyle: I made a melody from notes in this scale:





Lyle: That's about all the riffs I have to show you this week.

chuck: we want more

dever: thanks Lyle

Ace: the notes at the end are harmonics?

Lyle: Yes, the notes ( ) are harmonics

Lyle: Any questions before I have to go?

Steve: I'm good. Thanks, this has been a blast.....

Ace: I'll need to work on this more

Lyle: Cool. That's all for now. Hope you enjoyed it and see you next time!

Steve: Thanks again.....Adios

Ace: great, thanks Lyle

Lyle: welcome, see you again soon, stay tuned!
