Hey guys this is my first lesson. Here are some throes of the late great Dimebag Darrell. Dime used numerous scales in every shapes and forums in his heavy solid riffs and ear blasting solos. Here are some intros: Now take the "Cowboys From Hell" intro:

4------------------------------------------------12---
5-----------------12--12--13--12---13h14--------------
6--12-15-12-15--15--15--15--15------------------------
A amazing intro and a kick a-s riff Dime is using the E Pentatonic Scale with the root on 12. Dime uses the blues scale more than most scales and the Aeolian scale. Also here's the intro to "Walk":

    Anyone even vaguely interested in Dime's work could have looked up any of these tabs and learned just as much, if not far more, than this article explains. Perhaps a little more elaboration on why these riffs work well and/or maybe what the reader can learn from these riffs in terms of technique or composition would have made for a far better article. Work on that and then try again
