Awesome Gabriel! I could definitely hear both Marty and Dave in there, the solo was fantastic - reminded me of my early guitar days where I would overindulgle on Marty stuff. His licks shoot you straight through the heart.
Thanks for the inspiration once again!
Wow! This sounds insanely like Megadeth! And you've managed to catch the musicallity of Marty! Congrats man
Mission accomplished, agree with Zsolt
Killer tone and awesome lesson Gabriel
Great Lesson Gabriel! We definitely need more Thrash Metal lessons.
Perfect tone and great playing! Congrat!
Wow, I've been waiting for a lesson like this! Definitely bookmarked! I could also hear both Marty and Dave in the solo. The riff behind the solo is pure Megadeth!
Wow killer lesson Gabriel! You really nailed their sound!
Arrrr, pure awesomness!
yeah that's just awesome. \m/
Thank you guys for the nice comments!
I pity the poor person who's gonna try this for REC ! Awesome lesson
Great job Gabe, pure Megadeth!
Gabriel really awesome lessons - another great in style lesson from you!
Thank you Pedja and Muris!
Amazing solo, I got to learn this.
Amazing lesson, good job Gabriel!
Killer Lesson! This will definately be on my practice list this week. MEGADETH Rules!!!
Very useful lesson Gab!
guys, i'm confused here-
why is the arpeggiated part of the solo in A major instead of a key closer to E phrygian? three notes are sharp in A major, where none are sharp in E phrygian.
why does that sound good?
Thank you guys for the comments!
I love IT!! This is what I needed to get me going!! THANKS ONCE AGAIN FOR A GREAT LESSON.
that was awesome man!!! one of the best lessons from you ever!
Sounds just great! Awesome lesson, Gabriel!
Awesome playing Gab, you are rocking hard man, sounds very tasty and \m/!

Hi GMC! Welcome to my new lesson inspired by Megadeth. This is a riffing + solo lesson inspired in this great trash metal band. I started working on this lesson when I read a thread at the forum where a new user said that Megadeth's new song has a riff very similar to my first lesson based on them. In that thread you’ll find the reason why I get inspired to work on a new Megadeth Style lesson.
In this lesson I used Phrygian mode to compose the riffing section based on many Metallica and Megadeth songs (for example “Symphony of Destruction”). In the solo I used a chord progression very used by Mustaine & company. You can check for example the song “Hangar 18”.
I tried to capture Mustaine & Friedman’s vibes in the solo part. I combined E pentatonic minor + blue note, E Aeolian and E Dorian scales to compose the solo.
- alternate picking
- sweep picking
- pinched harmonics
- palm muting
- E minor Aeolian
- E Phrygian
- E Dorian
Ok, I hope that you enjoy this lesson and that Mustaine invite me to play with them in Argentina! hahahha.
See you guys!
PS: If you like this lesson you have to check (if you didin't) Megadeth's "Countdown to extinction" and "Rust in Peace" albums.
