This a really easy, but really cool blues riff using doublestops. Like most blues guitar riffs it is based on the pentatonic minor scale, however, we are going to include a ‘passing note’ – a raised sixth – to give it an extra bit of flavor.
A doublestop is when two notes from the scale are played together, and was a very popular trick among early rock n’roll players such as Chuck Berry. This technique will also require bending the notes, which can be a bit of a challenge when holding down two strings.
