  • Hello friends of GMC! Today we will learn play a powerful song in D minor scale.

    We will begin with a beautiful riff playing with the keynotes of D minor, F Major, A # major, G minor and F. This riff will be a bit complicated initially because of strings skipping, but you will develop it with some practice!

    The style of this lesson is very particular, I would say new and original. In the Backing track we can listen to some string arrangements, creating an excellent climate with his progression of chords, Glockenspiel playing with different melodies in D minor and a powerful drum generating the perfect environment for rocking! It is very important to analyze these Arrangements; listening carefully to them will make you train your ears and will open your mind for a better composition of your songs!

    We'll use some techniques like Alternate picking, Vibrato, Slides and Palm muting in this lesson.
