  • Hello GMC'ers!

    This lesson contains fractions of a song that I'm currently working on and I thought it would be a nice idea to share the material with you, so you can get some directions for your own songs. It's a modern metal riffing lesson, but it contains some electronic elements which I think blended very nicely with this. The composition is called "Eve Of The Battle" and I tried to describe such an atmosphere with music, which gets intense.

    Why is it important to learn this lesson? Well, you can get some insights on the drop tuning and learn some cool riffing patterns. You can also observe the backing track and try to see how it was fit with guitar. This will give you interesting ideas on how to create similar tracks.

    * Drop C
    * C - G - C - F - A - D
    (From thick to thin)

    Equipment & Tone Settings:
    * Gibson SG Raw Power Series, bridge pickup
    * Focusrite OctoPre MKII preamp/converter into E-MU 1212m audio system
    * Peavey ReValver MKIII (6505+ amp) for riffs, and TH2 Overloud for clean parts (Blackface with distortion, phaser, chorus, delay, reverb, compressor)

    If you have any questions:
    * Give feedback (upper-right-corner)
