Epic epic epic epic epic! I find it unbelievable that after all these years you still manage to blow my mind in ways I didn't think was possible! This one goes straight into the GMC history book.
MONSTER LESSON! A true inspiration. Thanks a lot for all your time you give us here.

Breathtaking lesson Gabriel! These melodies sound so beautiful and epic at the same time
True metal work Gabriel.
Awesome!! Well done Gab, very inspiring!!
Hey guys!! Thanks a lot for the comments. It has been a very nice experience to get back to my teenage years when I was all day listening to power metal bands. This music style make me have a very tight technique and developed my melodic side a lot, not only as a guitarist, also as a composer. I hope that you enjoy listening and learning this lesson as much as I did while I was composing it.

THE PROFESSOR As you can hear in this killer lesson by Gabriel, who melts some faces with his riffage in this video, there are a lot of different theoretical concepts going on in the power metal genre. While there are many angles you can take when soloing, riffing or writing in a power metal context, one of the most commonly used devices is the Harmonic Minor Scale System. Both the first mode, used over minor chords and keys, and the 5th mode, used over V and V7 chords, are commonly used in power metal and are must know scales for anyone interested in shredding in the power metal style.
Learning how to play, build and apply the first mode of Harmonic Minor as well as the Fifth Mode of Harmonic Minor will allow you to bring a metal sound to your own riffs, songs and solos. Though the raised 7th can be a bit “outside” at first, if you’re a power metal fan you’ll instantly recognize it as a characteristic, and must known, sound of that genre.
