  • Hey GMC’ers! Are you ready for some metal? I’ve created today’s lesson with the intention of giving you a better perspective on riffing and the building bricks of a breakdown!

    As you’ll hear in my spoken presentation, the breakdown is the middle part, encountered in a lot of situations, in the context of modern metal music. It is made up of a complex combination of rhythmic subdivisions and in most cases it’s played as aggressive as possible. It has to be alive, like a soulful mathematic formula!

    You shall be able to improve your rhythmic perspective, gain a better understanding of subdivisions and metrics, and become a better metal riffing machine.
