A rocking riff and chord progression in the key of F# minor

The riff I'm playing is taken directly from the F# minor/A major pentatonic scale. The power chords are nice accents and you may need to work on the quick change section where the power chords are ascending from the E - F and back to the F# riff.

Try supporting the riff with some kind of F# minor chord or even an A major chord, it's a blank canvas!
