Nice riffs there.
As busy as you are this summer, and still producing awesome lessons.
David, you are a juggernaut!
Very important topic! Good lesson David!
I liked the change from "a bit happy" to dark and heavy And I especially liked the riff with the keys in the backing over Gm and Ab/G
I also noticed that there are no tabs beneath the lesson videos, just text. Was that a miss or did you do it on purpose?
Why is the guitar pro tab showing up as tone relations from another instructor? Great Lesson though. Something i've been looking for.
Great topic and explanation David!
@ crazytrain101 - well spotted, fixed!
Great lesson David!
Great stuff yet again David!!!
Great topic coverage and very cool riffs man!
Thanks a lot guys!
I am on the road again and unfortunately can't fix the tabs..
I'll get to my new home in Colorado tomorrow and should be able to fix this issue within the next couple weeks... (need to unpack my computer and get internet connection as well...)
Wow this lesson rocks! Great job David!
Well done David,powerful riffing
very cool "jazzmetal" riffing here
In today's lesson, we'll take a look at a collection of riffs and how to link them together in a melodic (yet heavy) way... One of the key elements when writing is to try to find a few riffs within the same key. In the following track, I chose to use F Lydian as a starting point. From there I decided to build something in A Aeolian which shares the same exact notes with F Lydian. The only difference between these two scales are their starting points.
In order to keep things moving, we'll modulate to an F Phrygian Dominant scale which is very often used in heavy progressive music. We'll end with a little whole step modulation to G Phrygian Dominant.
Make sure you are comfortable with the following scale diagrams before working on the actual riffs. Once you are comfortable with this lesson, you should try to write your own riffs using some of the ideas discussed here.
