  • Hi GMC! Today I created a lesson inspired in Jerry Cantrell. Some GMC students have requested this and I thought that it would be great idea.

    Jerry Cantrell is the guitarist and main composer in the band Alice in Chains and also he has some solo albums in a very similar style. His style is a combination of obscure rock riffs, rocker licks and amazing guitar and vocal harmonisations in thirds and fifths. These things have made him one of the most interesting guitar players of the music movement called Grunge.

    This lesson has an intro Phrygian riff very influenced in Jerry’s soloist albums and also Alice in Chains first albums. The Phrygian repetitive riffs (the ones with the bII) are Cantrell’s favourite and very used.

    In the second part you’ll find a rock solo played in F# minor pentatonic where we’ll use some of Cantrell’s most used rock licks.

    Tempo: 130 bpm
    Key: F# minor

    See you!
