very helpfull, thanks a lot Zsolt
Very cool lesson Zsolt and interesting sound man. Great!
Great playing and very well explained lesson.
great riffs i really like them. at the beginning when you palm mute the low e string, i think maybe you mute it a little bit too far away from the bridge, making it sound more like F. i'm not really the one o criticise you for your playing but i niticed this in my own playing
It`s not low E. It`s 1 step down tuning. And I think Zsolt realize what is he doing, tho I prefer riff playing as close as possible to the bridge, more heavy sound
right, it's 1 step down, so to me sounds like d#. the vid says E though.
great riffs, awesome lesson
This time I'll try to explain the basic concept of song making in power metal. These concepts are being used by my band Wisdom as well.
A lot of power metal fans don't realise how much impact had Pantera and Dimebag Darrel on the modern way of constructing riffs and songs. To build up a modern power metal riff, all you need to do is to invent a Pantera style face-smashing riff and combine it with some harmonies and boom, here we go, modern style power metal riffs are born. This is what I did here.
The basic concept of building up a power metal song is as follows:
1. Main, or intro riff
5. Main Riff
9. Lead part
11. Ending or outro riff
There are various means to expand this concept. In this lesson I wanted to make a stronger impact on the listener by playing the bridge part after the main riff, and also I changed the main riff a bit after the chorus part to buld up a tension and a release to the verse.
Don't forget, I tune to D ( D, G, C, F, A, D ).
For further questions please feel free to wisit my personal board.
Have fun practicing
