  • Hi and welcome to the part 4 of this Viking-Folk Metal concepts ;)
    This time I´ve composed a simple Duet interlude: Acoustic Guitar (nylon) and Flute. I know I am not super-technical in acoustic guitar as my friend & companion Gerardo Siere, but you´ll find no difficult stuff here. What I want to show you here, is how different instrument work adding deep and beautyful atmospheres.

    You´ll find this kind of composition in many folk/viking metal bands as well as power metal bands as Blind Guardian, Rhapsody of Fire, Kamelot...

    As I said before, there´s a lot of bands in these styles, so we´ll see how all those bands compose their songs step by step, and trying to get a useful lesson based on their particulary style.

    Bands I am including to create the whole concept are:
    Finntroll, Ensiferum, Turisas, Amon Amarth, Falkenbach, Summoning, Heidevolk, Vintersorg and many others. Special thanks to Canis & VinceG for add more bands to this concepts.

    Some of these bands sound more Black, some sound Death, and others Power or Epic. So, we travel trough their styles and see what happens ;)

    Feel free to add more bands that you know to this concept HERE (link to my board)

    Take this lesson step by step and have fun!

    Chords: included in every video.
    Used scales: A minor, C major
    Bar: 3/4
    Tune Down: 1/2 step
    TEMPO: 160 bpm

    If you have any problems let me know. Take care.
    see you all around.
