Great lesson Ivan, it rocks and I love the new video format
Great, I love the Offspring! Some tight riffing there!
WOW. You captured it well Ivan. I grew up listening to Smash and Ixnay albums. Incredible stuff. I met Dexter Holland a while back also You are an awesome guitarist and I love learning your lessons. I hope to post me doing one of them soon
Sounds good Ivan, pure offspring sound, have to learn these riffs
Excellent sound my friend! Really in the style of the Offspring!... You captured it well Ivan!!
Amazing lesson ! You captured the style perfectly!
Holy son of a gun! Awesome! I gotta learn this!
Wow that sounds rocking!! Very very cool!
Wohoo! Ivan is rocking da house! I never saw your heavier side.
Cool lesson, mate!
Very cool riffing Ivan
Thanks a lot guys
Love it Ivan, very Smash like !
great style Ivan. you really nailed it.
very welldone mate.
can you tell me what program do you use for making background music? where can i buy it? great lesson!
Great riffing Ivan, I like it
I use Nuendo 3 for producing, Superior Drummer 2.0 for drums and Trilogy for bass.
Nuendo is Steinberg product
Superiour is Toontrack product
Trilogy is Spectrasonics product
There are many online shops that sell them.
Nice playing mate.
that was badass, simply awesome.
Great riffing lesson Ivan
Good lesson for power chords changes!
Cooool one,bravo Ivane!
Once again Ivan...you NAILED it! That sounds exactly light the Offspring!!!!!
Thanks, I tried my best to sound like the Offspring, some members requested it, so I hope I did good.
Really good riffing there!
Great riffing Ivan
That does sound just like Offspring!
Well done Ivan all round... lesson, video and audio is great!
cool lesson, sounds just like the offspring.
it might just be my computer but i think the video lags behind the audio a bit.
Awesome! You nailed it
Thanks again guys
one question: does anybody else except at lights end gets audio sync issues with the main video? If you experience those issues I will fix it right away.
you rock! that was fantastic! Going to learn this right now
Video and audio quality is fine, didn`t noticed your question..
Great riffing Ivan!
Rocking lesson, Ivan! This punk style was definitely worth it after the blues!
On your question: the audio track does start a little bit earlier... so it's a bit out of sync for me.
Hmm, thanks for the input guys, I will see what I can do!
...and thanks you didn't make an "in style of offspring's last 2 albums" lesson If you know what I mean...
Yes I know what you mean, Smash and Ixnay were the best IMO, as some songs from Americana are as well, but the rest is just not-as-good to say at least
Lovely! Just bought subscription and found immediately a lesson about my favorite band
That's great man, welcome aboard btw! If you have any questions regarding this lesson, any other, or anything in general, just let me know! Cheers
excellent lesson! i'm struggling a bit with the down up muted "chugging." i'm finding it hard to do it consistentatly on the upstroke. i think it might be to do with my pick angle or maybe just not digging in hard enough? any tips? or are there any lessons which break it down a bit more? thanks ivan
Answered through PM!
Thank you for the comment SynM
Hey guys, welcome to my new lesson, this time we are doing Offspring style power chord riffs. :)
As you all know, Offspring made a major breakthrough in Californian Punk scene with a couple of their very successful albums. Among those albums one is loaded with energy and great songs and that is "Smash". This lesson is inspired by that album.
Fast and catchy riffs, melodic power chord progressions, and lots of palm muting in between, characteristic to punk. Enjoy. :)
