  • Hi everybody and welcome to another lesson here on GMC, this time dealing with metal rhythm guitars again. In contrast to last time today we take a look at some faster stuff, this is a very good training for your alterante picking and your palm muting. Specially the palm muting needs some attention here because there are a lot of accented notes that have to be played unmuted, so definitely pay attention to this. You will see that I am not only using normal chords, but also a lot of single note patterns, I like them to break things up a bit, and it also gives me the option to add some harmony voices in the end (a fifth to the main voice)

    Make sure your alternate picking is very steady, pay attention to your palm muting and have a lot of fun practicing.


    Tuning: E-Flat

    Tempo: 150bpm
