Nice a rythm lesson! Good job and welcome to GMC.
Great lesson Kai - I've never been a metal head but would love to explore the possibilities and didn't know where to start - this is an excellent inspiration, thanks!
what a fun lesson, thanks a lot
Hey Guys Big Thanks again!!!
@ezravdb: Gern geschehen mein kleiner Ich danke Dir!
@all: I´m glad that you could take something from it. I´ve been thinking a lot what to start with...let´s see what´s next;) I have tons of ideas but I will take the time to explore the site some more to check what would fit in here best...
Really good lesson if you want to play Metallica !!
(James H. play like this)
I know it sounds like a dumb question .On the Tab what does the E stand for under the palm mute symbol,The key or what ? thanx anyone.
Great lesson i want more!
And welcome to gmc!
Assuming you taught god how to play guitar ?
Video 3 is exactly like video 4!! With different tabs just to let you know!
Ya I'm gonna say this is badass.
Yeah it's a nice stuff Kai! Great start at GMC! Keep up the good work!
Great lesson!I've been waiting for some rythm stuff to come out for a while!
When i create my riffs i always play down! Im too obssesed with metallica! This lesson will come in handy! Great job Kai!
Thanks Kai, awesome lesson!
Rythem... + Metal.... = METAL... haha i love this lession thanks alot
Great lesson. Just what I was looking for. Can never have enough basic metal rhythms. You got a great guitar too...what is it? What are you using to get that smooth tone? Are the pick ups stock?
Hey everyone...looks like something is always happening here:) that´s great...also thanks again for the interest etc I really did not expect that so many of you care for rythm stuff...well THANKS A LOT

Well, just like I said. Keep in mind, this does not go back "ONLY" to Metallica. More to people like Chuck Berry for example, or even far sooner...I can´t remember who else...and I guess noone really knows. But still its great isn´t it?
Awesome first one Kai,looking forward to next!
ah I forgot mr. lefty01...SORRY!
My guitar is a custom build instrument. I could build my own, because I am a joiner, but I decided to get the parts and let it be done by someone really professional. For example carving a bonesaddle like mine is almost impossible to get done, without having any training in it...So its a Strat basicly. Build just from Parts I chose...Swampash body,Hardtail-String through bridge, Duncan SH-6 and JBJR PU´S, Sperzel locking tuners, Push-pull to split the hummies to singlecoils...well its my main guitar...I love it thnx for asking:D I can´t stop telling how cool it is...I´m madly in love with it
Hi. Thanks for not forgetting me:)
What amp you using? Any effects?
Also, I don't mean to beg, but the more rhythm stuff you can post, the better. I think this is getting overlooked too often. I rhythm and riffs and the heart and soul of any song. Thanks again, and keep up the great work. Welcome to GMC.
Thanx Kai great lesson.Thanx, I look forward to more.
Hello, here´s that german weirdo again
Lefty01 I totally agree. Rythmguitar is totally underrated. I just came up with some funk riffings and licks...and again I noticed how hard it is to play that stuff really "in time"...it appears often harder to me then doing a solo with tappings etc. ...well...ok let´s see
Equipment in Lesson 1:
- My Mainguitar "Kopie" (that´s her name;) and my E-Standard Tuning Stringset: 11-49 (currently D´addario EXL 115) and 3mm Dunlop Big Stubby Picks. That gives you some serious attack and also cool cleantone, well I did not play clean but I love that...
- The Playalong is done on my iMac. I used Garageband3 and the Preset ampsimulations "Classic Rock" with no EQ´s and effects at all. I don´t like effects so I usually avoid them totally as much as it gets
- The Bass in the Playalong is my good old Clover 5 string Xpression and in the playolong with no guitars its a Garageband3 Preset called "Rock Bass"
- I also used a Behringer V-Amp Pro.
Here is what you hear in the Videos:
Savage Beast sim. with settings:
Gain : 10 o´clock
Volume: 1 o´clock
Bass: NO BASS AT ALL
Mid: 2 o´clock
Treble: 2 o´clock
I used that Behringer software from the website, to connect the V-amp to the PC. But since I only use like 2 sounds of that thing, I even forgot what it was called SORRY!...its free in the download section of their website, for those who care! really usefull!
Thnx for the interest again
This lesson rocks - really awesome riff construction, heavy mix and sound!
Oh I still laugh at video number 1, even though it's the 10th time I watch it - quality humour!
I also agree with what's been said about rhythm guitar - it's really a shame we don't have more of it! Perhaps Kai can help us out with that...?
I will do as you wish my Master and Lord Kris!
thank you very much that humor is just how I am...glad if you guys like it, because to shut it down is really hard sometimes...
and it also rhymes finally what I say makes sense:D
of cause I can do more Rythm stuff, but my problem right now is GP5. Funklicks, and other more complicated rythms are really hard to tab with it I find. I just strated working with GP5,first time was my 1st lesson for GMC,actually...and for example I don´t get how do definite the lengh of a chord? is there any tutorials on the web...I watched all that´s on youtube, but it doesn´t help me so far...I guess its learning by doing like always, huh?
Ah, and I used Toontrack EZ- Drummer of cause, with the Drumkit From Hell add-on!!! Try it! it´s really a lot of plug-in for the money!
Just Awesome, keep bringing that metal!!!
Yes, the breathing! o/
Loved this one. I will learn this. Thanks
welcome to GMC!
Nice lesson, tight rythm! Something i need to brush up on in the 'metal' genre!
I hadnt seen video 1....
Hoi hoi Kai + welcome to the GMC!
Nice to see another bastardised ... sorry 'customized Strat' user !
Greetz from your neighbour in Switzerland and nice lesson btw.
Alot of this is overlooked on masterclass, Its good your giving us some rhythm lessons ! But I still want to see some lead from you ! What can I say Kai, Im a tough critic?
m/ Right on Kai. Well done on your first lesson!
very nice i like it
I loved that lesson! I love your intro!
Makes me laugh all the time!
Good to have you here man!
Trying to get my Lead playing up to snuff made me forget how great rhythm is and how I need to practice both!!
Keep em comin!!!
Kai great lesson!!! I'm coming over to Germany next summer on a tour and I think we're stopping in Hannover. We'll have to meet up and have a jam session lol
hey davaflava, if its possible somehow...no problem i love jamsessions!
Awesome lesson Kai!!
Can't wait for your upcoming lessons.
Man this is an awesome lesson. Deffinitly the 1st one I am going to learn from this site.
Awesome video! Great character as well, can't wait to hear more from you!
This is my favorite lesson so far.
awesome sound'I will make sure to check out all ur lessons Kai, keep em comin'
This website is the Best.
Great lesson Kai, thanks!
Hope to see more soon!
This is a frikkin awesome lesson with a wrong misleading title. I just looked at the title a few months ago and thought it was another blues lesson.
I have been complaining in forums and other lessons that alternate picking palm muted power chords sounds wrong and this lessons clarifies my doubt.
Awesome lesson yet again man...
erm...sry?!wrong misleading title? i don´t get it?!...cheers Kai
sorry about the double post!
This is an awesome and fun lesson.
one thing i find that sounds good is in the chorus section, play the notes 5 times before palm muting instead of four:
PM PM PM PM PM PM PM PM PM PM PM
E E E E E E E E E E E E E E E E
nice ending w the fingers!
great lesson! only downstrokes gives the rhytm more "Push comes to shove"sound!
nice melodies in the back too!
Awesome! This is just, KICKASS Cool ending, and great speech looking forward for more !
Stamina booster right there !
I love this video! well done Kai!
now i try to play it, but im almost sure its to hard for me... we will see!
nice to see a german teacher here... m english is that bad, and now i found someone who could explain me things in german!
Great first lesson!! I like the idea of only downstrokes! Sounds heavier!
