  • Hello GMC! Today I recorded is a modern metal (New metal?) rhythm lesson inspired in bands like A perfect Circle, Tool, 30 seconds to mars, and many others. This is a 6/8 tune that combines different rhythms, riffs and progressions that are very used in today's alternative rock/metal. I think that this kind of bands have a fresh guitar work that is a must for every electric guitar player.

    In this lesson we will use different techniques like alternate picking, palm muting, legato and vibrato.

    The tune is in D minor but the first riff has been composed using D Phrygian Major Scale. This scale is the Phrygian mode with the third major instead of minor. We will also talk about some extended chords like Major Sixth add9 and minor ninth. And once again we will use power chords and octave chords.

    Tempo: 105 bpm.



    Pd: If you liked this lesson you should check these albums. Mer de noms (A Perfect Circle), Lateralus (Tool), A beautiful lie (30 seconds to mars)
