Riff 40: Tribute to Randy Rhoads. Randy was an amazing guitarist. His legato style of scale leads was trend-setting for many modern guitarists. Unfortunately, I'm not nearly as telented as he was. But I make an attempt at Mr. Crowley here. Notice the little legato run in the middle - when played right your fingers should just roll on and roll off the strings with very little picking. Hopefully, you'll get the idea from the wav. Alot of the chords tabbed are actually just intervals (2 notes). With distortion, they sound fine, and make it easier to play.

Riff 41: Another clean blues lick in "A". This one expands on the basic pentatonic and demonstrates how to move your leads up the fretboard smoothly. There's also a trick here - when you try to play this notice the bold tabs - to hit these two notes, you have to bend the first with your middle finger (12b14), then lay the same finger down on the next note (12 on the high E). It's a little tricky at first, but a neat trick used in alot of leads.

Riff 42: Had to delete this because the file was too large.




Riff 43: A neat blues lick I made up. This is played in "B" - just messin' around one day and came up with it. If you use it in your leads - just remember where you got it - Thanks !

Riff 44: A cool little rock'n'roll "squeal". Very typical in alot of tunes in "A" - very easy to do - just keep that first finger barred across on the "A".

Riff 46: A funky lick here you should all recognize. Great tune to do live and have alot of fun with. I'm using a basically clean setting here, neck p/up position with a slight sub-harmonic added in for effect.

Riff 49: Some twangy blues in G. To play this rhythm, barre your 1st finger across the 3rd fret, this will allow you to hammer the 4th fret with the 2nd finger and hit the 5th frets with your 4th finger - which you jump off the D string (5th fret) and onto the G and B strings (5th fret) to get the "boppy" effect. The chords are just ninths (G9,C9,D9), as I've shown in previous lessons.
