RHYTHM GUITAR 008: Hard Rock & Heavy Metal

June 29, 2018:
Hard Rock and Heavy Metal

 NEW  The eighth lesson of "Rhythm Guitar" studies the grooves of Hard Rock and Heavy Metal rhythms.

Four examples introduce the most popular rhythms, including the "Gallop," and the straight eighth note feel. Eighth note triplets are also introduced and there's studies that blend triplet feel along with the "Gallop" feel.

A bonus for BASIC and PREMIUM web-site members are the MP3 play-along tracks that will help with learning each rhythm example. 

Paid Web-site members (BASIC and PREMIUM), can watch the associated video lessons and download the detailed PDF handout, along with the MP3 clap /strum play-along tracks...

Join the member's area to download the PDF handout and MP3's. Study all of the examples with full access to both video lessons. Be sure to spend some additional time on learning the "Rhythm Jam Challenge" piece that I performed at the start of the lesson in the "Part One" video...

PART ONE (free):  Example one, introduces the famous "Gallop" rhythm used across all forms of rock and metal grooves. This rhythmic meter consists of sixteenth notes coupled with an eighth to produce a heavy metal "gallop-picking style" effect.

PART TWO:  In example two, the "Gallop" feel is incorporated again. This time it is applied around a straight eighth-note rhythm. These straight eighth's are combined with the basic "Gallop" (two sixteenth's and an eighth-note), to generate a 2-bar meter. 

In example three, a hard rock groove using the eighth-note triplet feel is the focus.

PART FOUR:  In example four, the traditional sixteenth to eighth-note "Gallop" feel returns. However, this time our guitar riffs apply the deeper tonal effect of "Drop D" tuning. You can achieve this common hard-rock /heavy metal tuning effect by lowering your guitars 6th-string down in pitch a whole step, (from "E," down to "D").
