Riff 22:  Funky octaves.  You'll hear alot of octaves played on bass - especially the 70's disco and funk stuff.  Here I demonstrate a simple funky octave lick.  Mute the A string with your first finger to keep it from ringing out.

Riff 23:   More funky stuff.  This is a fast paced little number using some quick strumming on some 9ths.

Riff 24:  This is more or less an effects demonstration.  Titled "YaYa" - you'll soon hear why.  Neat liitle effect that's built into my AX1000G.  You'll hear vocalizations in songs from time to time - just a neat little riff I'm demonstrating here.  I've tabbed the run for those that care. It's in A using the A (minor)pentatonic scale, which you should be familiar with by now.

Riff 25:  A neat little exercise in "neckwork".  This will help you gain accuracy when sliding up and down the neck.

Riff 26:  Some old 50's style rock'n'roll (in A).  The begining of this run is typical of your
Chuck Berry - "Johnny Be Good" style of rock'n'roll.

Riff 29:  Another toe tappin' rhythm and blues lesson.  This is again using 9ths in the key of B.  BluesB.wav loops rather nicely for a jam along. The picking style used here is D-D-U-U, D-D-U-U and so on. BluesB1.wav is the rhythm with a sample lead on top.

Riff 30: The singing G chord.  Many guitarist will throw the D (B string 3rd fret) in on their G chords.  This allows the chord to "sing out" as I call it.  Alex Lifeson (Rush), used this technique quite often as demonstrated here.
