This example shows how you can play these Standard Riffs by staying close to the 1st blues position: cool!

We’re moving with the chords and playing exactly the same lick on each of the tonics A, D and E.

The riffs fit nicely into the first blues position and offer us a bunch of extra notes on top of the blues scale.

Combining the two Standard Riffs in the two positions covers a large part of the fret board in one haul.
