  • Hi metal brains! Here I go again (like David Coverdale says) with a lesson where there is a virtuous Blackmore or a 70´s Yngwie Malmsteen.

    This is a piece of a song of my instrumental album, “Influences”, that you will be able to listen to soon if you want to buy it (please! Jah, jah) or download it (if you are a music thief! Jah, jah)

    It starts with a Blackmore's phrase in the A minor harmonic scale which ends in the riff.
    Then I play the arpeggios of Am, C, G, Am again and G again with string skipping.

    Now starts the solo with an Yngwie´s run in the B minor harmonic scale (over the F#7, fifth grade of the B minor scale), the rest of this part is in the B minor scale, playing a lot of legatos and ending in other Malmsteen´s run with alternate picking in 6 notes by beat.

    The end of this lesson is a cannon, one guitar plays a run in 6 notes by beat in A minor. The other guitar starts 4 bars later playing the same pattern, and then it ends harmonizing in a 3° minor of A.


    Long Live ROCK & ROLL!!!
