THE PROFESSOR In this shredtastic lesson by Ben, you are learning how to riff in the Death Metal style of Morbid Angel, using what is roughly the E Half-Whole Diminished Scale. As it has an “evil” and “dark” sound, the HW Dim scale is a staple of the Death Metal diet, and is used to create some of the heaviest riffs by your favorite heavy bands.
Learning how to build, how to use and how to play the Half Whole Diminished Scale on Guitar will allow you to understand why your favorite Death Metal riffs sound so heavy, and then give you the musical ammunition you need to write your own riffs in the style of Morbid Angel and similar bands.
