What's happenin' GMC! This songwriting part covers ideas in rock, indie, punk and THE MIGHTY METAL \m/. This is not a complete song lesson, rather the basic parts that you would need for one. This is also meant as a guide rather than a rule of thumb.
Verse, Pre-Chorus, Chorus and a Bridge. The parts and their general purpose are explained through the lesson.
Form of the lesson:
Verse x 2, Pre-chorus x 2, Chorus x 2, Bridge.
These parts use power chords mostly and feature small D minor pentatonic and D natural minor scale riffs. A basic song form has been included in the last lick. A second guitar has been added further back in the mix to help explain some parts better.
The second guitar holds the rhythm and harmonies for the track. The second guitar also holds the lead part for the first round of the chorus. This is to show the rhythm part.
The second guitar has been included in the backing tracks for you. The Guitar pro file also includes tab for guitar 2 on the last harmony.
Tuning is Drop D low to high - D A D G B E.
Modern hi gain distortion 3
4x12 cab emulator
With slight reverb
Key is D minor and tempo 175 BPM
