  • Hi GMC´ers, in this lesson we´ll see more about black metal style. Completely based on riffing, I think you´ll find some interesting things to work on. Here I used some influences from Satyricon and Dimmu Borgir, so I hope you like it :P

    The concept here´s to create a extreme and dark atmosphere. Keeping yourself brutal and killer from the beginning to end. Parts of this lesson have minor 3rds combinations, palm muting, open chords, and a meter variation at the end to 5/4.

    One important thing to play this style of music, is to stay completely relaxed. Every black metal guitar player has an incredible attitude on stage, that´s why they need to be relaxed all time. We´ll start in Eminor key, using notes from the E Harmonic minor, specially 3rds and 7ths.

    Take this lesson step by step and have fun!

    Chords: included.
    Used scales: E minor, E Harmonic Minor.
    Meter: 4/4 - 5/4
    Tune Down: 1/2 step
    TEMPO: 135 bpm

    As some of you know, I use a POD xt to rec all my lessons. In my board you´ll find my presets ;) On the other hand, here´re the settings for people who want them.

    Amp model: based on Marshall JCM-800
    Drive 6
    Bass 4.9
    Middle 5
    Treble 6.8
    Presence 7

    Small room Reverb:
    Predelay 0%
    Decay 42 %
    Tone 50%
    Mix 43%

    Remember: Same settings in other gear will produce a different sound, but, as we´ve talked at the forum, this could be useful for some members, so enjoy!

    If you have any problems let me know. Take care.
    see you all around.
