  • Hello GMC and welcome to the odd-time signature world! Odd-time signatures are used in various musical styles. Many guitarists met this signatures for the first time listening progressive rock songs or progressive metal songs.

    In this lesson I will show you some riffs using the 7/4 time signature. I wanted a guitar sound as raw as possible. I used my Zoom G2.1u with a Mesa Dual Rectifier simulation. No reverb, delay or other effects. The funniest thing was to write the drum track!

    Time signature: 7/4
    Tempo: 170 bpm
