Thanks Pavel, I like this. I haven't played anything heavy in months.
Yeah, good Metal riffs
Wish I had this long ago,thanks Pavel!!
Superb, I was looking for something exactly like this!! Great lesson Pavel
Cool i am glad you liked it! Thanks for your comments!
Great job Pavel, love the slide. Keep up the good stuff.
Pavel, great lesson but what are the Ls on the tab?
It's tied note! Visit Andrew's Theory lessons and look for Timing 101 topic.
Great lesson Pavel.
realy realy cool pavel!
Good Lesson Pavel!I think this will help alot of people here get into more metal.
As always Pavel, I love the lesson. Great job, keep them coming.
cool one, dude
Thanks for the great lesson. We cannot ever have enough riff/rhythm lessons...wonderful.
thank you thank you thank you thank you please can we have more beginner lessons
really nice! take a break from all the hard stuff to play something relaxing
symon: yeah i think this month i will work on more beginner stuff as i already did a lot of difficult stuff so this time i think i will work more for beginners part of GMC.
But first i still have one more power metal lesson which is some fast riffing.
Very cool! I love it!
Just great rhythm writing!
Great lesson Pavel, I love how you incorporated all of the different angles into this lesson, it really makes it a lot easier to learn. Thank You.
I also appreciate the fact that this is geared more toward beginner players. Being a beginner I feel we need more lessons geared towards us. Thanks again.
sweet i love metal
thank you pavel this has just got my fourteen year old back on track (who i am learning with )
for the last two weeks all i have heard is this is too hard i am no good (which really means i am lazy i cant be bothered) but with your lesson there was an imediate result and mr lazy guy has started to learn your latest stuff in his
words (that sounds sick) once again thank you pavel
Cool symon! I'm really glad about that! More stuff coming soon!
Awesome lesson Pavel your lessons are what keep me coming back
what kind of effects do you use pavel, your gutiar sounds sick, awsome lesson by the way
As usual! Digitech DF-7. Visit my personal subforum and there is a sticky about my pedal and exact settings
I just want to check what do you mean with -
"hit a powerchord and than play 8th notes of the bass note of the chord. In slower metal styles we usually play 8th notes. In faster styles like power metal we play 16th notes as a bass note repetition."
With the bass note you mean the root note, the lowest one, right?
And with 8th notes you mean 2 notes per beat? And this is if we played quarter notes previously, so we play them twice as fast?
Yeah you got it right! You can also see in my Rhapsody Style lesson we played 16th notes after hitting the chord or the root note.
Bass note doesn't have to be the root note but in our lessons it is usually the root.
great lesson was waiting for something like this really great but just one question i`m begiiner so don`t laugh but what does the L means in the tab
sorry read first before you ask my fault
Oh, I thought that the root note was always the lowest one, on the lowest string.
Oh, wait, of course, if the power chord is on the fifth and the fourth string, than the root note is on the fifth string, but that power chord can also be played using those two strings plus the sixth and third.
Hi Pavel, your dedication is an inspiration to me. I've been playing guitar for 2 years on and off, couldn't really dedicate myself due to work and university commitments. I always felt that my basics foundation was poor (I wanted to shred right away), so I joined GuitarMasterClass.
Now I noticed how you use your ring and little finger to fret adjacent strings (A and D respectively), I do this differently - instead I use my ring finger to fret both A and D strings. Could this be considered bad technique? The instructional material that I've used so far taught me that less is more, that is, use minimal effort to achieve the same end result. Should I stick with the most efficient method or develop technique around yours? Thanks heaps.
I am wondering the same thing myself Rawy!
Nice riffs for beginners like me
@Rawy: man, i somehow missed your post! 3 months late answer
I really like to use a lot of pinky - for me it's easier to use it with riffing in some places, so i don't do any stretches at all. In the end it comes to "what is most comfortable to you".
In some chords you'll be forced to use pinky, like 9th chords and similar stuff. It jsut became natural to me so i almost never think of fingering, it just comes in the right way straight away.
I use to use the ring figner to fret the power cord in the same way, however I have see a lot of videos with instructors using the pinky. I think that's a better way to go b/c this technique also helps with the bar cords and you can left that pink off to come up with some cool stuff. See Ivan's funky riffing lesson for an example on this.
:S i useing the pick where i need to use fingers?
Erm, i don't understand your question?!?!
But i have a little trouble with the rythm though.
The tablature doesn't show me whether to play 1/4, 1/8 or 1/16 notes.
So do you just have to like rip pavels rythm, or is there a better way to do it?
I am doing this lesson 2 hours a day so i would aprecciate an answer very much
That's why there is a GP5 tab to see the exact notation and duration of each note. That's also why we do slow videos, so you can see the rhythm and stuff slowly.
very nice, been looking for something like this for ages Thanks Pavel, Im learning all your lessons
Thanks man! If you like this one, you will sure like the rest of this series!
Oh, i see
GP5 is not a free program though, i only have PowerTab, but i will do fine without i guess
And i think that i have copied your rythm well, i just wondered if it would be nice to know how it looks in music notation
I'm sorry you don't have GP5 With it you would be able to see the notation and rest important stuff.
what does the L mean in tab
L means "Tied Note". If you're not sure what it is - check "Andrew's Theory Board" - there is a topic dedicated to notes.
Hey great lesson Pavel.
One of the things that I really like is that you've gone through the effort of explaining some of theory behind things like why things work and stuff.
I'm sure that that will make it much easier to apply the things in the lesson to my own playings.
Thanks so much.
man im done this lesson and I feel great. This kicks ass. However, if I wanted to add a solo to this lesson where would I even begin? Thanks.
great lesson Pavel!!!
I really enjoyed playing those riffs. Thank you! What is a LICK by the way???
thanks for this lesson...it'll bring me great help for playing metal riffs, especially the right hand view.
Excellent riffs so cool you have so good playing.
This one help me alot to pratice riffs.
oh yeah that's cool
I started heavy metal yesterday and I learnt this song in less than 1 hour
this is a must do!
