  • Hay Gmc! This "RIFFAGE" lesson focuses on Drop C tuning and the playing style of bands like Killswitch Engage, Children of Bodom and Bullet for my valentine.

    Tuning for the lesson from low to high: C G C F A D.

    Even though Drop C is the tuning of choice for most metal bands, Children of Bodom don't use "Drop C" tuning all the time. On Bullet for my valentines' "scream, aim, fire" release most songs are in drop D tuning. Check out my first riffage lesson for more on "Drop D" tuning.

    This lesson uses alot of alternate picking and fast legato runs and moves between two keys: C minor and C#major.

    The backing tracks include a backing guitar and synth doubling up the harmony parts for you to play with at different tempos.

    Tempo is 130 BPM in 4/4.
