Hi GMC friends!
I hope you're practising because some very sick exercises for the right hand are coming soon!
These riffs will get your hands on fire!
This lesson is a tune in the style of the death/progressive metal band called "The faceless". The riff in this lesson is divided into 3 main parts.
This is the main riff, composed on the E minor and G diminished scales. You'll need to use your
memory to remember the phrasings and a lot ot left-hand opening for a correct fingering.
It will let you increase your scale visualization level. Regarding the tempo, it's just the good
A long bridge which is in time signature (4/4, 5/4, 4/4, 3/4, 4/4, 5/4). This part is purely
rhythmical. If you're playing with other musicians, it's basic to maintain a tight coordination
with them in this part.
This could work as a chorus. It has a dark feeling and the tempo is 6/4.
Practise this at a really slow speed, especially Part B. You must keep concentrated and avoid
losing your way, that's why i recommend to play it so slow at first. As it always happens, the
secret is to get used to the movements very gradually while you increasingly learn how to feel
the tempo, which is very important in this style as it highlights the whole thing all the way.
If you interrupt the flow of your playing everything collapses. So work hard and and you'll
nail it, folks!
This riff is great for those interested in progressive-death sounds, where a riff from the first
round goes down to earth and then soars to the sky. Without changing the tempo, you can turn
everything upside down by just elliminating or adding notes.
In this lesson we're also combining rhythmical elements which are very useful to practise
right-hand control in time signatures with dark harmonies generated, in this case, by the flat 9 and the G diminished
Please DO ask me anything you need to know about this and any other of my lessons!
I hope you rock to death with this and the rest of my lessons and that my explanations are useful ,
C-ya next time!
