Wow, great lesson. One request though, you're picking up a lot of noise and squeaks on the demonstration parts by recording with the camera mic. It's kind of hard to listen to after a couple of minutes. In any case, more lessons like this, it's great!

Welcome to my new lesson my friends!
Instead of shredding my [email protected] off, I wanted to focus more on songwriting this time. I wrote this piece of music influenced by Avanged Sevenfold, who'd recently came out their new record "The Stage". I always admired the band's, and Synyster Gates's uniqe sounding. Syn can be recognized immediately thanks to the classical, sometimes even jazzy elements, chord progressions, cool arpeggios, and arpeggiated riffs just to mention a few of his trademarks. And of course there's always the great grooves in the riffs which make the SONGS cool to me, because You gotta admit, leads are or could be important part to the songs in these genre of heavy music, but it's the riffs that fills 90% of them. Yet there's a small singing lead at the end of the piece that involves such techniques as phrasings, bendings, hammer-ons, chord arpeggios. Enjoy it!;)
