  • Hi there folks!

    Welcome at metalcore riffin' lesson!

    This lesson will help You to work especially on Your right hand. There are tons of fast, palm muted licks with only down strokes at 220 bpm. All is based on some very popular, metalcore concepts. Every note belongs to the C# minor scale but being honest... You will rather think of E-minor while only the guitar is tuned to C#. This is the reason for further scale and chords names reference to standard E tuning.

    Learn how to organize strength of You right hand. Having too much tension might hinder your ability to handle the tempo.
