Ex­am­ple1 RIFF 1

Guitar Techniques - - LEARNING ZONE -

This riff is in the key of A ma­jor (A-B-C#-D-E-F#-G#) and uses the chords A, D and G in the open po­si­tions and an oc­tave higher at the 14th fret. The in­clu­sion of the mi­nor 3rd note ‘C’ cre­ates a mo­ment of ten­sion be­fore re­solv­ing to the ma­jor 3rd ‘C#’ giv­ing the riff a cool raunch­i­ness, which is cen­tral to the Poi­son sound.
