nice!!! when did this lesson come out????!
o its a really old one i think nvm
my god kris... you make me seem so bad T.T
lol vid 14
Kris, why didnt you just record vid 14 again?
PacmanProductions - are you referring to the missed harmonic? You get that one in the slow version
Awesome Kris! it sounds just like him!
yeah kris, couldnt u have re-recorded it? its not a problem or anything, i was just wondering...
cool!! thank Kris!~
Just was wondering what wah pedal you were using in this vid and if you were using it before or after the distortion. I'm starting to regret getting a cry baby and thinking i should have saved up for the vox wah.
A cry bay - I think I have it before distortion!
how many hours is the best to practice kris? and also is it better to practice the same lick over and over until you master it or alternate?..because i play 1 lick until i master it before moving to the next one .so sometimes i spend 10 hours playing the same lick a day..is that stupid? hehe
No it isn't at all - as long as you are motivated!
Practice as many hours as you can per day. It's hard to sat something specific, but if you keep it above 2 hours you know you are going to see some quick progress!
Nice lesson as usual.
The rhythm part sounded very familiar to me, now I remember why: it's very similar to some music of an old C64 game: ghosts'n'goblins!!
hahaha, Kris on lesson 12 you wrote Kirk Hamson
Kristofer Dahl = Chuck Norris
this lesson is hard.
Long live Kirk
haha this is soooo awesome, thank u kris
my hand is too small for some parts:|
Kirk's the MAN!
And so are you Kris!
I dig it man this rocks thanks kris
haha im new here but i learned half of the licks used in this first video from your licks of the day
we're not worthy!! hah, awesome lesson
I am quite new to GMC and by taking a look around i found your great lesson here.
It appears to me you kind of preset drums and then recorded the rythm part for endless repeat afterwards. I am very interested in a method how to do this in order to study different rythm scenarios & solos at home.
Could you please help me out and explain how recording and looping the rythm part is working? (e.g. from equipment point of view)
Thank you so much in advance.
Wow, awesome lesson, Kris !
great lesson! some licks in here are so Kirk
what is that high note with whammy at the end in 16? A pinch harmonic?
I believe it's a natural harmonic on the 3rd or 2nd fret of the B string, and using the whammy to raise the pitch of the harmonic. You should investigate in creating such harmonic on that string, and once you achieve it, try to control the pitch with the whammy.
Conveniently enough, this lesson comes right after the Matserclass "Hot Blues" lesson - because Kirk Hammett's style is in fact heavily inspired by blues. This lesson will mainly deal with Kirk's solo style from the Metallica "Black Album" and onwards . Mr Hammett himself claims his goal with his new solo approach was to get "a bit bluesier" - and the result was an effective blend of metal, blues and wah-wah driven madness.
In this lesson you will get a hang of some typical Kirk Hammet style licks, you should also follow my example and use these ideas to make your own "Metallica-style" improvisation over the backing track. All the licks covered here will work nicely in E minor (except where note otherwise) - E minor is the the most common heavy metal key, so learn it well.
Now let's take a trip to heavy metal land...
