  • Hi GMC'ers!

    Ever wanted to play heavy riffs and be melodic in the same time?
    This lesson will show you how to combine two guitars for the above result, with a happy, energetic twist!

    What would Post hardcore be?

    "Post-hardcore is a genre of music that developed from hardcore punk, itself an offshoot of the broader punk rock movement. Like post-punk, post-hardcore is a term for a broad constellation of groups. Many emerged from the hardcore punk scene, or took inspiration from hardcore, while concerning themselves with a wider degree of expression.

    The genre took shape in the mid- to late-1980s with releases from bands from cities that had established hardcore punk scenes, in particular from the scenes in Washington, D.C. such as Fugazi as well as slightly different sounding groups such as Big Black and Jawbox that stuck closer to the noise rock roots of post-hardcore. The style became commercially prominent in the first decade of the 21st century." - Wikipedia
