Helpless (Wishbone Ash)
A take on one of the great riffs from this song, played in 2 different positions on the neck, it sounds great on either acoustic or electric.
It uses the notes from the E minor pentatonic scale, but to help you improve your fretboard mastery, Andy will show demonstrate the riff in 2 different positions on the neck. One way using open notes….. and one….not. The latter being slightly more challenging. Either way, the uplifting melody will make sure you have a blast with it.
