  • Welcome to the Creed style lesson !

    Creed was one of my favorite bands from the Milenium period. It was time when from a hard rock and metal genres, something new has evolved. So what Creed delivered, was something between rock and metal. Heavy, powerful, yet still melodic and without dense, fast playing. Overall power was the purpose. In this lesson I invite You to get familiar with and "extract" of Creed's playing. For the tone purpose we will use Poulin Lecto plugin, which is a simulation of Mesa DR - amp used by Mark Tremonti at the period of "human clay" album.
