Cool riff mate. Really something to headbang along too.
Gotta get my speedpicking up a notch or fifteen to keep up tho
Great! Helped alot. As you mentioned, it's something you can really use in a live situation!
These type of videos are AMAZING!!! Thank you so much for doing this, it really helps me knowing I don't have to know 10,000 keys/scales/chords yadayada yet I can still make fun, interesting, and cool music. I think this "simplified thinking" is really helpful for people who don't know a ton of theory.
Thank you guys!
The simplified thinking is very usefull - especially if you are short on time. It's what i use in my playing, and you can see the results of this kind of thinking in all of my lessons
More comming soon!
great!!! this is just the stuff i was looking for...im a bit of a begginer, and all my current songs dont really sound well with just a guitarist, they are all just like band songs ....so this makes me look slightly good!!! i cant quite play it the same speed as pavel, but im only about 20bpm off...!!!! thanks!
maybe can we get a riffing lesson thats not metal? just a thought.
Stevie Ray: Was it Jimi Hendrix who said "wait until tomorrow" or how was it...
i'm 13 years old.. but considered a guitar prodigy; wondering if i could post alesson or something?
kool stuff pavel you really have a ear for what your playing and thats a important quality to have
Two days and I am through part 4 and playing it fairly fast, but....
I knew you would comment about keeping the thumb in the middle of the neck eventually, ha ha.
30 years of playing sloppy petnatonic rock leads with my thumb wrapped around the neck is gonna be hard to break. Yes, I am 43 years old.
Do you have any tricks to help with keeping the thumb in the middle of the neck?
I lift weights alot and keeping the thumb under there makes my forearms cramp or does it make everyones forearms cramp?
Thanks for the awesome lesson,
Well there are no tricks in thumb position - you have to control it all the time until it become natural to keep it there. So - concentrate more on the thumb position than the notes you are playing.
You are so right.
I notioed in order for me to play certain riffs it is MORE natural & comfortable to keep my thumb underneath.
The action and slim necks on my two new ESPs helps also.
Thanks again, you are a very talented guitarist, but your lessons are made as easy as possible.
great lesson...but im a little confused. when i download and print out the tabs they say this is speed metal riffing lesson 2. is there a speed metal riffing lesson 1? I know there is a power metal riffing lesson. Thanks
Power Metal Riffing lesson is actually the Speedriffing 1
I NEED TO KNOW IF HE IS DOUBLE/TRIPLE PICKING EACH NOTE FOR SPEED METAL RIFFING LEAD PART NO.2 ALSO IF HE IS MUTING THE STRINGS
I don't doublepick them but i DO mute the strings!
This lesson has been taking quite a while for me. Im having trouble mimicing the rhythm speed throughout the song.. The fingering positioning is fairly easy but keeping up to speed is giving my arms both a workout. Whether it takes me a week, no, a decade, ill be practicing this interesting lesson for hours.
Awesome riff... PAvel you really are one of the best GMC teacher, glad you are there to teach us this stuff
Where can i learn this scale, such as phrygian. I only know my penatonic scale. Can someone post a link to the scales lesson
Visit the previous speedriffing lessons - as long as i remember there are scale diagrams in one of the lessons!
great lesson.. we should get more of these:)
That's some sweet stuff Pavel
OK.... wow talk about making me stretch my fingers.. I have samller hands will this get better over time? I am using some muscles that I thought I never had.... :-)
The size of hands doesn't matter if you practice stretches! It will sure improve with time!
love the riff, but i can't get it fast enough, what should i work on to get it up to speed?
and should i be picking every note? or should i use hammer ons and pull offs?
You should be playing it like i do in the video That's what slowed down videos are for
haha alright, but how do i get it so fast
i can't nearly play it as fast
The slow videos are not that fast, that's why they are SLOW VIDEOS Also you have tabs, so if it's hard to follow the videos use the tab and play it with metronome at speeds you can handle.
still didn't answer my question
i know, i can play it slow.
but what should i work on to make my speed on this, or any other riff faster? just practice? or excerises? or what?
I did answer! Just you didn't get it!
If you are trying to play the riff that is too fast for you - slow it down and practice it slowly or slower.
Great lesson I love it
Sweet lessons Pavel.... I just signed up to learn some of your lessons.. Gonna take some time, but ill get it eventually.
Wow, this thing rocks !
O.o.... I can actually play this.. Awesome lesson!
