Lian a backing track and POD preset could be useful, Ya know;)
Before your lessons I was not a big fan of that kind of music, but you opened my eyes and I love it now!!!
Thanks so much Lian!
Do you have any recommendations as far as bands in that style?
Great - very catchy tune, Lian. I myself have incorporated a few Irish and Scottish style sounds into my playing as well but this a bit different. Folk metal, Celtic aye! Very cool sound, thanks for the lesson and, keep on rocking that metal, dude...
This is awesome Lian! My wife is from Scottish decent, and loves reels. This is, perhaps, the best compromise between our musical tastes that I've ever heard! Definitely a lesson to work on! Great man! Just great! ... as usual though.
Awesome work Lian!
thanks a lot Muris!!!
Cool lesson Lian, some great "Irishmetal" here
This is classic Lian !! :-)
thanks a lot man! glad you like it!
Hi GMCers and welcome to a new lesson.
This time we´ll see some Irish folk, so, I came up with a famous Irish Reel.
What´s a Reel:
Basically, it´s a folk dance.
All reels have the same structure, consisting largely of quaver movement with an accent on the first and third beats of the bar. A reel is distinguished from a hornpipe by consisting primarily of even beats. Reels usually have two parts (A and B); in most reels each part is repeated (AABB), but in others it is not (ABAB). Each part (A and B) typically has eight bars, which in turn are divisible into four-bar and two-bar phrases, as in a scheme of question-answer, where the first phrase is the "question" and the second is the "answer."
This awesome tune is played in many Celtic gigs around the world! So, you´ll find so many listeners once you learn it! XD
Hope you like this lesson!
Take it step by step and have fun!
Stay close! -
Used scales: F minor. E minor *
Meter: 4/4 –
Guitar Tune: Down 1/2 step
TEMPO: 95 Bpm.
* this reel is composed in the key of E minor.
I played it in F minor ´cause my guitar tune is down 1/2 step. So, you can learn it in both keys.
As some of you know, I use a POD xt to rec all my lessons. you´ll find my presets on my board ;)
If you have any problems let me know.
Take care and see you all around.
