Lots of riffing ideas to "borrow" here - thanks Chowy! Be sure to check out the related lesson at the bottom of the page as well.
I love these melodies! Killer riffing and chops, Chowy!
Wow, awesome riffs man!! It's way to hard for me, but it rocks big time!!! m/

Very inspiring lesson Chowy!

Dude this is off the hook! Your fast becoming one of my favorite guitar players!
All I have to say is wow! I love all your lessons and I have to say you are really inspiring me to practice harder. The most inspiring since Pavel!
Great metal riffing to work on, awesome work Chowy
I love this!! I'm listening to it again! It's a beautiful piece!
i love the bit at 1:29. Fast and awesome!
Even though there's no way i could learn this song at my current level, i was interested in seeing you teach this. I'm trying to find the awesome sweeping part. I can't find it... where is it?
oh wait, i think i found it in the tabs, just surprised that you didn't video it. I was just wanting to see it in slow-mo for fun.
super mega ultra archi lesson my frend! great work!
Ahah those strings skipping look so hard ! Loved that tune
This piece is just totally mindblowing! Makes me want to play guitar all day every day!^^
Hi GMC friends! Here I am again, this time with a metal lesson all the way. It's about riffing with ninths and assembling several parts with twin guitars.
I made this song a while ago and wanted to make a lesson out of it because I think it has lots of useful stuff for you, mainly for the metalheads but with elements that EVERYONE can take advantage of!!
It's important that the ninth chords are always played with the first stroke down and the rest up. This way you can play faster and more fluently. It's something that has always worked for me and I always recommend.
I hope this exercise will expand your riffing horizons so that you avoid playing with tonic and fifth all the time, which I find boring, worn-out and colourless. As opposed, when using more open chords you achieve a more interesting colour. I think it's very cool to explore this style to enrich your way of playing/composing.
Not much more to say. I just hope you enjoy this lesson and find it really useful!!
See ya next time!
