Now that we have a basic chord progression for our blues rock practice tune, let's come up with a riff for it. To do this we'll add the b5 note to our pentatonic scale and base the riff on that. This collection of notes is often referred to as the blues scale, and it's a great way to inject some blues into your rock sound!
