We can play the Sliding Standard Riff in one other position, connecting the 4th, 5th and 1st Blues Positions:
TAB 4th, 5th and 1st Blues Positions (key of F)
Sliding Standard Riffs in 4th, 5th
and 1st Blues positions - CD 65
TAB Sliding Standard Riffs in 4th, 5th and 1st Blues positions
Using these connecting riffs gives us something like Solo 6
Solo 6 - CD 66
TAB Solo 6
We're playing the Sliding S.R. on the tonic C, starting with our index finger.
By now, you can connect all the Blues Positions through the
Sliding Standard Riff. We've made the connections between these positions by
playing this riff on the I chord.
But the IV and the V chord also have Sliding Riffs. These riffs are good to glue the Blues Positions together. Just move with the chords.
Accompaniment: full chords Example 2 ; wrap around R.J. Lockwood groove. (Different Key: C)
