  • Hello Friends of GMC! Today we will study Creed’s style! But before that I'll give you a bit of information of the band!

    Creed was a post-grunge band emerged in the mid-90s in Florida, United States, which became one of the most sold in the 90s and early 2000s. This group makes its appearance in the rise of Seattle grunge or sound with bands like Nirvana, Pearl Jam and Sound garden.

    While the original grunge groups were experimenting with new sounds at the time, Creed adapted the grunge to make a more friendly to the radio, and selling millions of albums. Despite his commercial success and wide popularity, Creed was severely criticized for your sound created with formulas and his lyrics not as "pessimistic" and was accused by critics of being unoriginal and copy the famous Seattle grunge group Pearl Jam, since some believed that the main vocal interpreter of Creed, Scott Stapp, was an imitation of Eddie Vedder of Pearl Jam.

    Since its inception the band has achieved great popularity and high levels of sales, but over time their relationship was fraying, and integrates well his music, until their separation after 10 years of experience in 2004. After being considered one of the best bands of the moment.

    This lesson is inspired by the brilliant and successful song "My sacrifice". This is really one of the bands that most impact me with their music, accompanied me in my teenager years. The great sound of their guitars and melodious songs inspired me forever!

    I looked for a lot of information in videos to make this lesson. The live concerts helped me very much. A "youtube" video inspired me to use this tuning.

    The tuning is:
    1) D 4) D
    2) D 5) A
    3) A 6) D

    You’ll work aspects like rhythm, scale uses, and different techniques as alternate picking, slides and vibrato.

    Nothing is impossible! Feel the music and God bless you!
