  • Hi GMC'ers! In this lesson I will show you how to play one of the songs from my band's new album. The song is titled "High Germany".
    This song is a traditional tune composed back in 1800. It was played or sang in Napoleon's wars by the soldiers in campaign.

    At the end of the song, we composed a metal jig titled "Erin’s Jig" in honor to Ireland. We hope to keep the spirit of this style alive :) I will show you how to play this song and I will explain the theory behind it in every part of this lesson
