Hey guys! My name is Tyler Teeple (A slight resemblance to my forum name tongue.gif) and I am from Ontario Canada!
I have been playing guitar for about 6 and a half years and have been serious for the past 2 and a half (when I joined GMC)

This song/solo is from my old band! The song was called Lights Out biggrin.gif


This lesson is going to be on Metal Soloing, it includes:

-Tapping
-Pinch Harmonics
-Strong Rhythmic sense

Here is the main lesson video: (solo starts at around 0:15)



Guitar pro tab and backing tracks are located at the bottom of the post!

Tuning:

C G C F A D (Drop C)

*I will include backing tracks in Drop D as well!*

It is mostly made up of the following:

Spanish Gypsy/Phrygian Dominant Scale:



Diminished Arpeggio:



Slow Video:




Lick 1:

                              |-3-|

--8-8-8----8-8----8-8---8-8-----------------|
--------------------------------------------|
--------------------------------------------|
--------------------------------------------|


This first lick shouldn't give you too much trouble
You want to play it aggressively!
Add some pinch harmonics for flavour tongue.gif

Lick 2:

Watch out for the timing here!
The big slide from 16 to 23 should sound smooth and not forced!

Lick 3:

Make sure the bend/tap/release is on time for this one!
Keep playing aggressive biggrin.gif

Lick 4:

Heres a cool triplet run!!! Pretty fast and some position switching, so start off slow and build up!

Check out all the forum posts on alternate picking if you run into trouble, they help a lot!

Some Michael Romeo style Dimished Arpeggios! Practise them with a metronome as the timing is a bit odd,
if you run into trouble check out Emir Hot's Michael Romeo/Symphony X style lesson as he does similar runs in that!

Thanks for checkin out my first lesson!

Very well done! Great writing and playing smile.gif I notice you forsake your pinky a bit when doing runs, this isn't a crime by any stretch, but it's a good idea to work the little guy so that you can play with or without him. But that's just a small note. The lesson is great and so is the composition, well played!

I think it's awesome! Great composition and awesome solo, you played it so well! smile.gif There are few minor details in your playing, tone and lightning of the video that could be polished up. Keep up the good work. Material and explanations in your post are excellent with good attention to detail! smile.gif

That's sounds awsome. I'll definitively have to give it a try.
I really like your compositions Tyler. I often listen to your work, and it always sounds interesting. Congrats.
