  • Hi, Lian here. Power Metal Concept Pt.III, the final part of our P.M. Concept. Based on bands like Stratovarius, Helloween and many many others. Here we´ll see how to make a complete song in the Power Metal style in 3 parts/lessons.

    You must check out:
    Power Metal Concepts Pt. I
    Power Metal Concepts Pt. II
    before start to learn this.


    This is just one of many forms or structures that you can find in a song. So, this is just an example. Also you can compose or create your Power Metal Songs with this concept or following no rule.

    Techniques we´ll use here are:

    2 and 3 strings sweeping,
    Palm Muting,
    Legato,
    Legato with tapping,
    tapping-slide,
    Pick-Tapping (new),
    Slides and Vibrato,
    Natural harmonics,
    floyd rose.

    The Key is A minor.

    Scales we´ll use are: A minor and A Harmonic minor.

    This P.M.Concept will try to show you different parts of a song. We have intros, chorus, solos.... but... how can we put all the parts into a song? This help you to understand how.
