    Riffs with Dyads

    Hi, I've been really getting into songs that use dyads in their riffs, especially major and minor thirds, but I rarely come across them.

    Can anyone recommend some good one?

    Some examples are:
    Judas Priest - Between the hammer and the anvil
    Udo - go back to hell (intro riff)
    Grave Digger - Valhalla
    Ghost - Rats
    Trouble - Assassin

    Thanks.

    I'm wondering whether to ban you, because you can't possibly be serious, but I'm not sure exactly how this is spam. You do realize that the power chord is a dyad, right?

    I have absolutely no clue about musical theory terms so I have no idea what it means.

    But seeing GRAVE DIGGER mentioned makes me happy

    Lots of great 80s metal riffs were made with two note combos. Bust out some old Dokken and go to town.

    With all the babies springing up around here, I first read this as, "Riffs with Dads."
