  • Hello lovers of the secrets of the guitar! We are back to play and study a very important genre, intervening in the world of modern guitar. I refer to "Hard Rock". This became an epoch marking style for teens. Guns N 'Roses, Aerosmith, Bon Jovi, etc. Guitarists such as in Mr. Big, Extreme, Van Halen, Withesnake, (etc.) for the years 80 to 90.
    From the bands I named, the guitarists were all prominent figures, fulfilling an important role and providing an image to the band (not to mention their hair cuts, tight pants, shoulder pads, etc).

    If we think about where this genre began, we must go back to Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, etc. Bands of strong creative Riff's, a major element in Hard Rock! We can also see that most of these bands and guitarists are really good, maybe, in some other areas, this did not occur.

    In this lesson I use a sound with a good gain, (Messa boogie preamp simulator and a gain similar to that of an OD-2), delay and reverb to make a sound with sustain, as this area set the trend with these powerful guitars.
