Hey GMC-ers! In this lesson I tried to combine the precise riffing technique of Jeff Waters from Annihilator and the well known song structuring of Dave Mustaine from Megadeth.
The lesson is in the key of E. The first main riff is in E blues and the small bridge parts that tie the main riffs together is in E minor. Pay attention to your picking hand as the picking here is very important. When you begin playing the riff and the first rest occurs, the following muted pick should be an upstroke!
The second part is the main bridge part, that's where the sweeping pattern kicks in. This section can also be divided into two separate parts, the first is the easy one. Simple arpeggios executed in a very playable manner. The end of the second part is very hard to play if you're not that familiar with sweeping.
This lesson can serve as a very cool rhythm exercise, too if you for some reason are not familiar with arpeggios. If this is the case, simply play the rhythm parts.
Eventually it can give you a great feeling if you are able to play the whole lesson. Remember, practice makes one perfect. Practice slow at first and eventually speed it up to the desired speed.
