This riff is very similar to what a lot of blues players do to flesh out the sound of the guitar. By playing a lick on the higher strings, you get the upper, treble register of the guitar. Then by jumping down to the lower strings, you get the bass register of the guitar. The double-stop diad bend combined with the hammer on of the minor to major third goes a long way to spice up this lick and make it super bluesy.

This riff is quite a handful. So take your time to practice all the little parts and put them together. Be patient! This is a hard one!
