  • Hi GMC!

    Welcome to my new lesson based on Millencolin, a punk rock band formed in 1992 in Sweden.

    Check out my other Punk Rock Lessons: Classic Punk Series, Pop Punk Series, Skate Punk.

    Music Style:
    Their style is usually defined as Punk Rock, Pop Punk and Skate Punk. They have been playing for more than 20 years and they basically have catchy punk songs, with very interesting guitar arrangements.

    Tonality, Chord Progression & Scales:
    This tune is in D minor but as many Pop Punk songs, modulates to its relative major (F Major) in the chorus. This is usually found in Pop Punk songs by bands like Blink 182, Green Day, Sum 41 and lots of other bands. Most of Millencolin music is composed using minor and major tonalities, power chords for backing guitars and triads for arrangements.

    Techniques:
    This lesson is not technically difficult. We will use palm muting, only down strokes rhythms and alternate picking.
    Timing is essential in this lesson so be sure that you play it tight with the drums.

    Sound:
    I used my POD hd500 to build a sound based on Treadplate amps and 4x12 cabinets. I used Cubase to record audio and midi, SSD 3.5 for drums and Trillian for bass.

    Tuning:
    I used standard 440.

    Tempo:
    170 BPM

    Ok guys – it’s time for skate punk!
