  • Hi and welcome to a new series!

    The title says all! In this series we´ll work on riffs, groove, rhythm. All we need to improve our skills. In this one we´ll use alternate picking, pinch harmonics and palm muting. That´s all! Ask whatever you need! Take this lesson step by step and have fun!

    Used scales: E minor mostly.
    Bar: 4/4
    Tune Down: 1/2 step
    TEMPO: 100 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 wants 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 cool for some members, so enjoy!

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