  • Hi Guys,

    Welcome to my lesson No. 75

    A new series called BASIC ROCK GUITAR that is made specially for beginners just because a lot of people asked for it.
    From time to time I'll will publish a new lesson of this series where you'll find some useful informations, riffs, rhythms and simple solo techniques so that you can immediately start to rock your guitar! :-D

    BASIC ROCK GUITAR(Metall Riffing)

    In this cool lesson I made three parts with typical metal riffs.

    The A Part is in normal tempo, the B Part has a double time feel and the C Part has a half time beat. So switching betwenn these parts is a very good exercise for your timing!

    Have fun!
