  • Hi everyone !

    I wrote this metal piece for my band one of my bands.
    It includes a main riff, the verse and chorus part.
    This riff is fairly easy to play, but sounds good in my opinion :)

    The song starts out in E phrygian with a heavy dropped riff. To make it more heavyer, I've included a pinched harmonic at the end.

    The second part is a typical 70's 80's riff, it's fairly easy to play, and it's easy to create a verse part to in.

    The chorus part is a simple E minor, but very melodic and it's very easy to create a chorus to it.

    This lesson Includes:

    Palm muting
    Zakk Wylde style pinched harmonics, and vibrato
    melodic chord playing

    I'm in drop D tuning:
    D; A; D; G; B; E

    Have fun!
