LICK 2 d minor pentatonic slide riff
DLuther’s playing can get quite heavy at times but there is always a great sense of groove going on. Here we see how he might exploit the symmetrical nature of open D tuning, specifically on the numerous D and A strings to create a simple but remarkably effective riff derived mainly from D minor pentatonic scale (D F G A C) with an additional 6th (B) in the final bar. Aim for a rhythmic feel that is slightly pulled back. You can afford to be ever so slightly late and relaxed with your delivery here and even the bends can be lazy and unhurried.
