Hi there Everyone, I'm currently writing a pentatonic tips and tricks tab for one of my students and I'm struggling to find examples of sequenced riffs to use. I've written my own for him to study but Ideally I need examples from existing songs/solos aswell. The only one I could think was part of the second solo in sweet child of mine. Can anyone recommend any I could use? Rock,metal,blues genre is not important. I will accept dorian and Aeolian riffs as I've already exposed him to modes but ideally it needs to be Pentatonic minor. By sequenced riffs I mean groupings of 3rds 4ths etc, 123 - 234 -345 etc etc I've been going through pages and pages of tabs and their appearing rather allusive so any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you.

You mean licks, not riffs, right?

The end of the solo on Black Betty by Ram Jam. Also, Good Times Bad Times by Led Zeppelin has some typical pentatonic sequences.

Those are what come to my mind off the top of my head.
