  • Hi guys, welcome to a new tutorial, this time in the style of the well-known bands Mercyful Fate and King Diamond.
    I´ve composed this lesson using trademarks licks and structures from both bands. So I hope you find interesting this etude.
    Goal here is to feel rhythm mixing playing from riff and rhythmic guitar to solos and melodic lines. So go for it and ask for everything you need.
    Many thanks to the following members who requested this lesson at my board: Outlaw2112, Schumi Jr, dreadred.

    Take the lesson step by step and ask me if you need any help.

    Used scales: E minor, A minor, F# minor
    Meter: 4/4 –
    Guitar Tune: Down 1/2 step
    TEMPO: 130bpm / 190bpm

    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 2
    Bass 4.9
    Middle 5
    Treble 6.8
    Presence 5

    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 useful for some members, so enjoy!

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