what you'll be learning in this lesson which is in the key of G, standard

jam track in
Lyle: The first riff I want to show you uses 3
little riffs like this:
Lyle: For each one of those riff positions,
you'll repeat them like this:
Lyle: Riff 1 is how the Lesson Sample starts.
If you listen to riff 1, then the Lesson Sample, you'll recognize

The last riff you need to learn from the Lesson Sample is an ascending chordal
riff that goes like this:
Lyle: Take all 4 riffs and play them together
back to back to recreate the solo from the Lesson Sample. Use the Lesson Sample

riffs try mixing them up in any order you want as you practice along with the
looping jam track.
