Easy High Melody Dyad Riff W/ Moving Bass

Introduction

Hey everybody how’s it going? This is Darrin from GuitarControl.com bringing you this video lesson. Today I want to show you an Easy High Melody Dyad Riff With Moving Bass that I made up. It has a moving high melody with a moving bass line. Most of it is fairly easy, but there is one part that is a little challenging, but we’ll handle that when we get there. So be sure to click on the link for the tabs and lets get close up and take a look at this.

High Melody Dyad Riff

First thing is we’re gonna put our second finger onto the 8th fret of the G string, third finger onto the 9th fret of the D string, 4th finger onto the 11th fret of the G string and our first finger onto the 7th fret of the A string. So this shape excluding what I’m doing with my first finger is a shape that is going to be repeated throughout. So we start out by just playing the E bass note on the 7th fret of the A string twice with palm muting and then strum the dyad chord. Even though our second finger is back here on the 8th fret of the G string we’re not playing that note yet… So we have the bass note twice palm muted and then the dyad chord once and then two more muted bass notes and then we move our fourth finger down to the 9th fret on the G string and strum the dyad again. Now we hit the bass note twice again and then remove our fourth finger and strum the dyad again. Now two more bass notes and put your fourth finger back down on the 9th fret of the G string and strum the dyad three times… that’s the first part of the riff. So moving on the high melody dyad part stays the same but the bass note will move from the 7th fret of the A string to the 9th fret of the low E and we just play the same sequence with the different bass note. Then the bass note changes to the open A string and the high melody repeats again. And finally the bass note moves to the 7th fret of the low E string and remove your fourth finger from the G string and strum the bass note twice and the dyad once and play that sequence twice followed by two bass notes. Then put your fourth finger back on the 11th fret of the G string and strum once and then slide your pinky down to the 9th fret and hit the bass note and then strum the dyad and pull-off your pinky to the 8th fret on the G string and hit the bass note again and then strum the dyad once and do a hammer-on with your 4th finger back to the 9th fret of the G string. So the whole thing slowly…
