- Ritchie Blackmore Style Conclusion
Another one of Blackmore's rhythm riffing techniques is to play octaves instead of full chords.
In my example I am playing a low bass note, then playing an octave higher. Separating the notes rhythmically creates an active, bouncing around, high-energy sound! I am playing the notes, A, G & F each with their octaves. This suggests a progression in the key of A minor. Also, in between some of the octaves I play a little scale run outlining the first five notes of the A minor scale, which is another neat Blackmore-ish touch.
