Rock Riff - 14


A great Jimi Hendrix intro riff using an E pentatonic scale at the 5th fret and 7th fret positions

This riff uses pulloffs (PO) and one hammer-on (HO) - use first and third fingers throughout.

The 2 beats marked x in the tab are "dead stringing".This is where you hold your left hand on all 6 strings without pressing down on the frets to get a dead sound.

Jimi Hendrix used this technique a lot especially with wah-wah.
