  • Hey GMC!

    Welcome to the 6th episode of Metal Metrics! Today we shall be dealing with the idea of different ways of developing a given rhythmic formula – in other words, drawing different faces to a mean riff.

    As benefits:

    - you shall develop your right hand technique – alternate picking in the context of a riff
    - you shall broaden your horizons regarding orchestration ideas
    - development of your rhythmic sense, by working with an interesting rhythmic formula.

    As listening and inspiration, I would recommend the song ‘Whitewashed’ from August Burns Red, so grab your axes, tune to drop C and let’s ROCK!


    Tuning: Drop C (C G C F A D)

    Tempo: 120 BPM

    Meter: 4/4

    Scales: C blues/ C Aeolian

    Tone settings: Bass – 10 o’clock, Mids – scooped, Highs – 1 o’clock, Gain – 2 o’clock, using the lead channel of my AMT ss20 Pre-amp, boosted with a Suhr Shiba Drive overdrive pedal.
