“TNT” Style Riff

When I was in college I wanted to move to Norway because of the band TNT!  Ronnie Le Tekro played incredible riffs and solos.  This example features many of the elements found in “Metal Riffology: The Art of the Metal Riff”, including:

  • Pedal Tones
  • Form/Variations
  • Dyads
  • Three note power chords on higher strings
  • Dorian mode

There are also some ear-catching sixth intervals in this riff.  Can you spot them?
