hey ruben, check out my instructor profile, almost all my lessons are rhythmic oriented, it's not metal, but i think the real deal on rhythmic is not on metal tongue.gif, but on funk, blues, jazz smile.gif

Ruben,man as you know there's really a LOT of lessons on riffs/rhyhtm on gmc, so the confusion is understandable.. Since you've mentioned metal, I'd say narrow it down to the style you like and then do the lesson .. in the style of etc ... I did Anthrax style from Lian and quite enjoyed it along with some Gabriel's riffs lessons. Even the Iron Maiden masterclass sounded awesome

AND to mix the practice up with some songs, once again go to the songs or artists you like and start learning their songs. Back in the day, I was addicted to thrash metal, so I learnt most of my rhythm work by playing old metallica, sepultura, slayer and megadeth songs. Most of those songs are classics. You dont have to learn entire songs (although good) but just pick various riffs form them and incorporate them in your routine. You can infact pick the songs that are already on gmc, like creeping death by metallica can prove to be a killer right hand workout. But choose your fav the style first or you'll get bored.

I dont know how comfortable you are with riffs already.. If you can tell me that, I can recommend some tracks and some particular riffs in those tracks which would make great exercises... in order of difficulty.

But as always, slow it down and make love to the beat and timing (Ok, that didnt come out right laugh.gif ) .. Rhythm is all about being on time and listening to the drummer VERY carefully.

Don't worry, rhythm technique is like any other - the more you practice, the better it will get, no less then other techniques on guitar. Couple of months and you will be tight as lightning smile.gif

Sure man. As Ivan mentioned, If it's fast, slow it down and practise it on the metronome, that fact applies everywhere as you know and sortta gets irritating but its true .. .. Yes, the riff will probably sound CRAP at slow speed but if you stick to it and endure the pain, it will shine through in your final take smile.gif

The simplest song that i can think of to start dveloping consistency without complicating riffs is Paranoid. You can try Sabbath or Megadeth's version. I used to do the Megadeth's version. It has simple down strokes and the focus of exercise should be to keep the riff consistent throughout the song and work on finding the best sound when you're palm muting.. Not too much pressure but not too light either. Also paying attention to the pick angle (slightly angled). Since the riff is easy, you get to sharpen those aspects of playing.

Next try Sad but true (metallica). Its here on GMC. It has simple riff and not fast at all.
Next try legendary gallop riffs from maiden .. they are not that fast and a must know for every guitarist smile.gif .. in my opinion
Next try .. seek and destroy (metallica) .. It has some great riffs on an excellent consistent beat ..and once again, not that fast. (most of it)

Once you get comfortable with slow-medium riffs, then look at more power metal, or speed riffs, that need fast alt picking. The legendary track Whiplash (metallica) is a great example of this. Damn, it's turning into an old school metallica post.. laugh.gif

Dont just stick to metal.. explore more (wish i had done that) .. bands like foo fighters etc have some groovy rhythm's and chops ..

Sorry, I can only share the bands and tracks that helped me in the past. And they are quite outdated now tongue.gif .. There are heaps of approaches to learning this. You gotta find what works best for you to keep you interested. But definitely incorporate various styles of riffs in your practice routine on a metronome or on a simple drumbeat.

Hope this helps, feel free to ask more ..
