Welcome to my new lesson in the style of Arch Enemy!
We will be looking at some of the guitar characteristics of Michael and Christopher Amott.
Arch Enemy are classed as a melodic death metal band. The guitar playing of the Amott brothers is very much inspired by classic metal, with tasteful melody lines, memorable solos and great tone.
Christopher's playing could be described as being influenced by neo classical guitar and is more technical.
Michael's playing is more old school metal, with pentatonics and plenty of wah usage.
The band normally tunes to C Standard but I'm in D Standard for this lesson.
You will be playing a hefty chunk of rhythm playing first of all before you tackle the lead playing.
This lesson will work on:
- Rhythm playing / riffs
- Palm muting
- Alternate picking
What are you waiting for? Get learning!
