  • Hi there, welcome to the third part of these lessons called Classical Inventions. This time something Neo-classical, as many power metal bands have added to their solos. One example of that could be the famous band Stratovarius.

    Well, this lesson contains a lot of altpicking, some legato with tapping and string skipping at the end.

    I used 235 bpm to play tho whole lesson in eight & eight triplet notes. So, it could sound fast, but if you think that we are playing sixteenth notes at 117.5 it's not too fast.

    Well I hope you enjoy this lesson as I enjoyed doing it.

    Take this lesson step by step and have fun!

    Chords: included in every video.
    Used scales: A harmonic minor, G minor. & Am, Cm, Gm arpeggios.
    Bar: 4/4
    Tune Down: 1/2 step
    TEMPO: 235 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.
