  • Hey GMC'ers! This is a lesson in the style an American band from Orange County, California, Avenged Sevenfold. They play melodic metal with lots of great solos and harmonies. They have recently (2010) recruited Dream Theater's ex-drummer Mike Portnoy. (I still can't believe I'm writing ex-drummer)

    You will find cool riff techniques and also nice harmonizing solo ideas here. Notice that

    * Dropped D:
    * D - A - D - G - B - E
    (From thick to thin string)

    * D Minor Pentatonic
    * C Harmonic Minor
    * Bb Harmonic Minor

    If you have any questions:
    * Give feedback (upper-right-corner)
    * My Personal Board
    * General Forum

    Have fun with it!/ Daniel
