Cool lesson and awesome tone! Sweet guitar strap.
Thanks Monkey and Fireball !! One day maybe I'll be able to afford some new jeans huh ?? ;-)
ahaha don't need xD.
that style suits you, and ty your lesson really inspired me to start pratice and focus on my down/up strokes
Haha, well Monkey.. that's awesome that it's inspired you to work on that technique. Combining lots of downpicking with up strokes really allows you to attain higher speeds. No wonder people like Dave Mustaine use it ! :-)
Killer riffing, man!
SPOT ON! great stuff! your band is lucky
Also the sound and the riffing are absolutely Judas Priest! Cool!
Guys, thank you so much !!!
Great lesson Ben!
Thank you Juan !!
Nothing beats those old school metal riffs m/
Love this lesson, really like playing it... killer sound & riff! Thanks!
Hi GMC'ers! Welcome to my lesson in the style of Judas Priest. I've chosen to capture the feel of two different eras: Killing Machine and Painkiller.
One of the main features in this lesson is the use of Diads. These are two note chords and are commonly used in metal instead of Triads, or three note power chords, as they are easier to shift between quickly.
There is also some fast tempo downpicking combined with upstrokes, which may be challenging if you're used to only downpicking. The key is to start slowly but don't concentrate too hard on your picking hand. Instead, try to 'feel' where the upstrokes should naturally occur and eventually your hand will get into the groove of doing this.
Remember: The only opponent is within!/ Ben
