Pat Metheny Style Root 5 Major Scale Riff

By Darren DeFranco


Hey jazz fans,

Major scales can really be used for any style, so today we’ll be looking a jazz style riff ala Pat Metheny. Make sure to add that swing feel to really make this riff bop! Then, add a touch of chorus to really give you that Pat Metheny sound.

Enjoy guys!


Master this riff and you’ll be good to go. For extra credit, try to transpose this riff to other keys. Try D minor, E minor, and G minor.
