  • Hi GMC'ers! In this lesson we will work on your metal riffing techniques. This lesson is part 3, of the series evolving metal riffs.

    You will find variations of metal riff, and ways to make them more interesting as the song progresses. This will help you create your own riffs and arrangements for a full song.

    For this particular lesson I used one string lick that can be very effective, and show you what kind of variations you can make by using your picking hand. The fretting will in be very similar, but they way you pick will greatly determine the character of the lick. Buckle up, it's time for some tight picking! :)

    * Palm Muting
    * Speedpicking

    * E standard
    * you can use any tuning since the whole lesson is on low E string

    * E minor

    Stay Metal! /Lale
