  • Hello GMC'ers!

    This is yet another addition to the Metal Metrics series in which I included a drop A song called 'The Seed', written with one of my bands - Aria! This song is mean and aggressive, so I'm expecting you to put a lot of attitude in it when playing it!

    What you will hear in the backing tracks, are the actual recorded drum takes, which I edited a little in order to give them to you - I considered it an interesting experience as they have the real feel! Enjoy playing with my drummer!

    Since a lot of you guys requested low tuned riff oriented lessons, this one will help you improve on the following:

    - Strong rhythm sense
    - Interesting elements used in 4/4 meter subdivision context
    - Right hand palm muting and control technique

    Tuning: Drop A (A E A D F# B)
    Meter: 4/4
    Scales used: A phrygian dominant (1 - b2 - 3 - 4 - 5 - b6 - b7)

    For a listening session, I strongly recommend Meshuggah and Sevendust as these two bands influenced us a lot in writing this piece.
