Here’s a lesson with some cool blues riffs that also work well in country music.
This guitar riff works off the E pentatonic minor scale, and is played over an E7 chord. There is a variation in there, which Colin explains in the lesson.
This blues riff can be moved around – in the lesson you’ll see how to move it to the A and the B position, although you can easily use it in other keys as well.
The trick with learning these riffs, or any other guitar riffs is to practice until you’ve got it, then figure out how to move it to other keys, and then start throwing it in with other songs you’re playing until it really truly sticks in your repertoire and becomes one of your own.
