  • Hi and welcome to this new lesson.

    This time, I want to show you something into the “industrial” style, with no metal ingredients. To do that, I´ve modified my metal presets a little bit to get a synthetic atmosphere.

    My intention when I play something industrial, is the fact you can dance with it! Yeah, I know, it sounds weird :P but this sort of music has evolve from the Electronic Music mostly so, putting dancing rhythm on your songs, it always works.

    From my point of view, this kind of lessons could help you to add more ideas to your vocabulary, whatever style you like to play. The combination of different elements is a powerful tool in composition times.

    I think you´ll find this lesson so easy to play, but so funny overall! I´ve focused on rhythm mostly, so you have to pay some attention on that. Also I suggest try to stay completely relaxed to play this one.

    Begginers: under every video tab, I´ve put extra information to make you sure learn the whole lesson correctly.

    Inter/Advanced: you should have no problems with this lesson, so pay attention on irregular meter, and try to apply different ideas to enrich it.

    Take this lesson step by step and have fun!

    Used scales: E minor mostly.
    Chords: included.
    Meter: changes indicated.
    Tune Down: 1/2 step
    TEMPO: 100 bpm


    As some of you know, I use my 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 Fender Bassman 4x10 combo.
    Drive 8
    Bass 5.9
    Middle 11.3
    Treble 9
    Presence 8.2

    Gate:
    Threshold: -68 dB
    Decay: 0%

    Stomp/Screamer:
    Drive: 50%
    Gain: 21%
    Tone: 94%

    Mod/Phaser:
    Feedback 70%
    Mix: 45%

    Vintage Plate Reverb:
    Predelay 100%
    Decay 63%
    Tone 86%
    Mix 30%

    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.
