Guitar Riff - Chord Based Movement

This is a fairly common type guitar riff that uses moveable chord shapes and arpeggios to outline the basic notes in the riff. The guitar part starts with an A minor chord and a common hammer on sequence from the open B string to the C note on the first fret. Then the riff incorporates open notes most noteably "G" as is moves up the fretboard using a moveable "C" and "D" chord shape.
