  • Hello GMC! Welcome to my lesson in style of great band System Of A Down. Tune your guitars to Drop-D (E G B D A D). What I really like about System Of A down is how they mix fast aggressive riffs with slow, dark-sounding parts.

    This lesson might be a good exercise for your right hand as it contains sixteenth notes at 165 bpm. Slower part of my lesson is based on d minor scale. With this lesson you're going to improve alternate picking, palm muting.

    Here's some info about SOAD from
    System of a Down (commonly referred to as System or abbreviated as SOAD) is an Armenian-American rock band, formed in 1994[1] in Glendale, California. Consisting of Serj Tankian (lead vocals, keyboards, and occasional rhythm guitar), Daron Malakian (vocals and lead guitar), Shavo Odadjian (bass), and John Dolmayan (drums), the band has released five albums since 1998. A staple on mainstream rock radio, their works have earned them three Grammy Award nominations, of which they won one.
