Hey everybody,

The Black Crowes are known for being a fun, blues based classic rock sounding band. As such, they use pentatonics extensively in their solos and love going up into the BB King box to get some extra wailing sounds. We’ll show you a typical Black Crowes style riff so you can see how the BB King box could practically be used in a real solo.

Enjoy the riff guys!


Master this riff and you’ll be good to go. As always, relate the BB King box back to its respective pentatonic scale.
