Riffs You can Use - Part 15

Lyle: Good evening, how is everyone?

Lyle: In this lesson I have another funk style riff to show you. The rhythm riff reminds me of something Joe Satriani might have played:

ace: doing good

david: good

Lyle: It's based off a Gm triad to a Gm6:

Here's a jam track with the rhythm guitar in it:

Lyle: To get that rhythm guitar tone, try using a strat style guitar with a clean amp setting. Select the 2nd position on the 5-way pickup switch, which turns on the bridge and middle pickups on the guitar. I call that the funky setting.

Lyle: My favorite scales to use against a jam track like this are the Gm blues and G Dorian, which is a minor scale.

Lyle: I made a solo, which is in the Lesson Sample, from these two scales.

Lyle: Here's a video of the whole thing:

Lyle: That should keep you busy for awhile. Several riffs for you to learn and use in your own jams.

Lyle: Any questions?

ace: Dorian is minor blues with 2 and 4 added?

Lyle: The Dorian is 1, 2, b3, 4, 5, 6, b7

Lyle: The minor blues is: 1, b3, 4, b5, 5, b7

Lyle: The minor pentatonic is: 1, b3, 4, 5, b7

ace: so Dorian is minor blues with 2, 4, and 6 added

Lyle: Dorian doesn't have a b5, but the minor blues does.

ace: oh, right

Lyle: they all have 4ths in it.

Lyle: That's all I have for this lesson. Hope you found something new to work on.

david: great, thanks Lyle!

ace: TY

BB: thanks so much

Lyle: Welcome! Have a great week. See you same time next Monday!
