A Variation of the 6 White Horses Riff

An All Purpose Riff

This is a great and common riff for backup. Use it for fills, or just general backup. It's called the 6 White Horses riff because it was first heard, played by Earl Scruggs, in a song of the same title. There are many variations of it, and this is just one example.
