  • Hi there, how´s going? Welcome to a new series. This time we´ll pay some attention on different Meters. The main goal of this lesson is learn some options to escape for a while from classic 4/4 bars.

    To start, I´ve worked the whole lesson in 3/4. Bands like Blind Guardian, Rhapsody of fire, and many others, have used this resource in their songs.

    So, we have two things here: 3/4. Basically, number 3 indicates how many times our beat has. And number 4 indicates quarter note (4)

    So, you could count in your mind (ONE, two, three, ONE, two, three, and so on) until you feel comfortable with it.

    Take this lesson step by step and have fun!

    Chords: included in every video.
    Used scales: A minor, E minor, C minor
    Bar: 3/4
    Tune Down: 1/2 step
    TEMPO: 180 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.

    Amp model: based on Soldano Slo-100
    Drive 9
    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.
