John Scofield Style Pentatonic Riff

By Darren DeFranco


Hey jazz fans!

We’re going to get some experience with that root 5 pentatonic scale by learning a riff in the style of jazz great John Scofield. John Scofield has a slight blues/rock flavor to his playing and thus the pentatonic scale works perfectly to create his sound. Just make sure to add a little bit of swing to your eighth notes!

Have fun with the riff everybody!


Try to get this riff as tight and clean as possible, and think about how all the notes fit into the root 5 pentatonic scale.
