If you goal is to broaden your horizons as a guitarist, then It's important to try utilize new elements in your playing. Check out Cosmin's new lesson, "Metal Metrics 1", and then post a reply to today's topic.

How often do you use break downs in your riffing?

I do that quite often, I also did that in my first self-written song "9 to 5" (just check my youtube channel) and I think breakdowns are really important for a metal song, it makes things more interesting and gives the listener some time for some serious and heavy headbanging tongue.gif

Great lesson Lupino!
I really enjoyed it. I hope you'll do some more of those ''new metal'' lessons. what I especially like are the chords used, the 5+ and some that are not often used un std tuning. Also the dissonant part is great. I would like to know more about these chords because they relly seem to give the dropped tuning a complete new dimension!

Once again, GREAT!

I usually didn't like breakdowns, for my tastes, it makes it to obvious to the listener what's going to happen. It can be good and bad depending on the view. Now that I'm in a hard rock project, I keep doing them all the time.
