Hey there my name is Isac Lundqvist….

I live in Glommersträsk (a small village in northen Sweden)… I am 20 years old and I have been playing guitar for about a year now…..

My favourite guitarists are, Luca Turilli, Alexei Lahio, Marcus Seipen and Andre Olbrich.

My favourite bands are, Rhapsody of fire, Moonlight Agony, Blind Guardian and Nightwish…. I don’t play in a band at the moment but I hope I will in a near future.

Now that you know a little more about me lets move on to the lesson

This is a lesson a wrote inspired by Toni Souminens Metal Octaves lesson.

It’s a beginner lesson with very easy licks but if you are unfamiliar with playing with octaves I suggest you have a look at Tonis lesson here https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/rhythm-gu...octaves-lesson/

Now lets take a look at the lesson

Here is the lick played at full speed with drums
Attached File  Octaves_Full.mp3 ( 663.78K ) Number of downloads: 943


The lesson contains 3 parts we could call them, verse, chorus and outro….

The verse part

Attached File  Ocataves_1.mp3 ( 498.04K ) Number of downloads: 468


D|-14-14-14-14-14-14-14-14-13-13-13-13-13-13-13-13-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-7-7-7-7-5-5-5-5|
A|--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-11-11-11-11-11-11-11-11-10-10-10-10-10-10-10-10-5-5-5-5-3-3-3-3|

Play this x2

This lick is played in 8th notes(8 notes per beet). Use alternate picking all the time and make sure the shifts between the chords are smooth

Chorus part

Attached File  Octaves_2.mp3 ( 497.22K ) Number of downloads: 352


D|-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-|
A|--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-|

D|-11-11-11-11-11-11-11-11-10-10-10-10-10-10-10-10-10-13-13-13-13-13-13-13-13|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
E|-9—9—9—9—9—9—9—9-8—8—8—8—8—8—8—8—8-11-11-11-11-11-11-11-11|

This lick might be a lot trickier because it involves a lot more chord changes

Practice it slow and be sure you get the pattern down before trying to speed up.

Outro

Attached File  octaves_3.mp3 ( 498.45K ) Number of downloads: 295


The outro is kind of similar to the verse but it is played a little higher on the neck

D|-15-15-15-15-15-15-15-15-14-14-14-14-14-14-14-14-14-18-18-18-18-18-18-18-18-17-17-17-17-17-17-17-17|
A|------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
E|-13-13-13-13-13-13-13-13-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-16-16-16-16-16-16-16-16-15-15-15-15-15-15-15-15|

Play this x2

These are all the parts of the lick…Practise the separately first until you know them and then try to connect them together using the backing tracks….

I have provided 4 backing tracks in different speed so that everyone can practise with the backing track

Attached File  Octaves_140bpm.mp3 ( 838.33K ) Number of downloads: 243

Attached File  Octaves_Full_speed.mp3 ( 733.74K ) Number of downloads: 279


Here is A Guitar Pro file that you can use when you practice

Have fun with this lesson and if you have any questions don’t be afraid to ask

Good luck

I think this is a good basic presentation of what octaves is all about, I think you did a good job explaining it, smile.gif

Also it's very important to have basic lessons, so I think that overall this is a good contribution to the lesson database!

Good lesson. I confess that I don't really know to play octaves.
