I've looked more into Rob Zombie after this lesson.. Awesome music! Until recently, the only song I've heard of him were Dragula, as I'm sure everyone has
Awesome lesson! Thanks a lot ^^
By the way, on video 6 the tabs say that you play the third fret on the E string, but you don't do it in the video and it sounds rather wrong
>> Thank you! Just a bit of improvisation made me find this evil voice that I didn't know that I had...
Search a bit more and you might discover your DARK side!
Love it!!! Love it!!! Love it!!! Another great lesson Gabriel. Rob Zombie is one of my favourites and John 5 has certainly brought a lot to the table since joining him. I think you've pretty much nailed their style with this lesson Great work!!! Oh and love the vocals too... it took me a minute to realize it was you. Truly evil and menacing Gabriel
Great composition and playing Gabriel!
I have never been a big White Zombie fan, but this sounded really cool, great lesson
Really Really cool sound!... fun lesson!
what a nice composition gabe!
Hi GMC! Welcome to my new lesson! Today we have a composition based on the style of the talented artist called "Rob Zombie".
Music style & influences:
Rob is an amazing musician, singer and horror films director. His music style always has “horror films” vibes and this lesson I tried to recreate it. Rob's music is like a continuation of his previous band called “White Zombie”. This band has a very particular sound thanks to the combination of Thrash/Groove metal, New metal, Techno & Industrial music. Songs like “More Human Than Human” and “Super-Charger Heaven” defined perfectly his style in the 90’s. In his solo albums he continued developing that style. I based on “Educated Horses”, his last solo album, to compose this tune. I chose that album because is more rocker than electronic and the guitars have been recorded by John 5 who played with Marylyn Manson and is one of the most interesting modern metal players. His “demonic” guitar style fits perfect with Rob Zombies music.
This lesson is a good lesson for beginners because it’s very easy technically. It starts with a dropped D repetitive riff. Then the main guitar plays some octave chords and two strings bending which are very used ideas by White Zombie, Rob Zombie and John 5. Then we have a “banjo” part that is played in unison by the electric guitar and a banjo. Finally you’ll find a melody very inspired in “horror” played by harmonized guitars.
Virtual Instruments & arrangement:
I added some Reason Virtual Instruments to the rock quartet to make this sound a bit more similar to Rob’s music. You’ll hear a drum loop in the beginning created with the Redrum (Tecno kit). I also added a synth from the “Thör” module in this part. Then I added a Banjo with the “NNTX” module that plays unison with the guitar.
The level of this lesson is from beginners to intermediate and the techniques used are palm muting, bending, vibrato, alternate picking and legato.
I use “Dropped D” tuning as John 5 in many of his songs. He also uses Dropped C.
Scales & tonality:
The composition is in D minor. The main idea in this music is to generate “tension” all the time so you will find more repetitive riffs than “commercial” chord progressions. This makes everything sound a bit like “modal” like Techno music. The scales used are D pentatonic minor and D Phrygian.
Ok guys! I hope that you enjoy this lesson!
Keep on rocking!
