  • Hello GMC, I am happy to be part of this great community of Guitarists and to be able to share some secrets.

    On this first meeting working our fingers and increase our knowledge of the world of Rock.

    Today we will explore a style that marked a tendency in the guitar solo. We are speaking of the “Melodic Hard Rock”.

    Those of you who have listened to “Still got the Blues” by Gary Moore, or “I wish it would rain down” by Phil Collins, “Now you are gone” by Whitesnake, and some songs by Bon Jovi, Mr. Big, Guns n´ Roses, Aerosmith, and also various soloists of the era.
    Many bands of the 80’s have merged Rock with melody.
    Today we will be studying the most melodic part of the Hard Rock of the 80’s.

    Let’s keep in mind the effects used for this base.
    We apply a strong gain to obtain a good sustain and add a delay effect and reverberation.

    Chords:
    Am7-F9-7maj-g9
    It can be said that it is a typical harmony of Hard Rock or Rock itself.

    Techniques:
    Legato
    Palm muting
    Alternate picking
    Bending
    Vibrato

    Scales:
    A minor scale + Blue note

    OK, to work.
