Hi GMCers! Welcome to a new punk lesson! This time I created a tune inspired in the band “Bad Religion”.
Bad Religion could be considered one of the pioneers of the Californian Punk Rock. People sometimes reffers them as a Classic Punk band because they started at the end ot 70’s and they influenced lots of bands. However they are influenced by Classic Punk bands (like Ramones, Sex Pistols, The Clash) at the same time. Their music includes very often used punk and pop chord progressions build with power chords, triadic chords, simple guitar melodies, some rocker solos and memorable vocal melodies.
Tonality and Chord Progression:
The tune is in A minor. You can find the chord progressions in the main video and also in the GP file and tabs. The main progression is I – III – VI – VII. This progression is a very common progression and it’s frequently used in rock/metal hits.
As with all the punk lessons the technique level is low. The most important thing here is the song, the structure, the rhythm, the attitude and the melodies. The techniques used in this lesson are alternate picking, strumming, bending and vibrato.
I used my Pod X3 Live to record this lesson. I used a Marshall JCM800 emulator with a Marshall 4x12 cabinet. If you want the Line 6 Tone, you can ask for it in my personal board. My guitar is a Gibson Les Paul Studio. The bass sound is from the Hyper Canvas VST Instrument, the drums are EZ Drummer.
Ok punk rockers! Here we go!
