Hey everyone! This month, we're taking a look at triplets. Triplets (like any other tuplet) offer a very distinct rhythmic sound. The focus of this month's tutorial is taking our triplet runs to the next level; creating sub-divisions within a triplet phrase. I've devised six different approaches to a descending pattern in Am, using groupings of three, four, ...

Threes For the first exercise, we're just descending in groups of three - down three, up one, down three, up one, etc. This is a fairly common descending approach to scalar passages. Fours Here, we get our first taste of "playing over the bar line", It's crucial to practice these licks to a metronome. Without a metronome, it's VERY easy to fall into feeli...

Sixes Groups of sixes in a triplet feel should feel and sound rather natural due to it being a mutiple of three. The lick itself is a tad tricky due to the quick "back and forth" motion, but keep in mind that we're descending from the highest note/descending 6, second highest note/descending 6, third highest note/descending 6, etc.) Sevens Much like fives...

Hello once again! We'll finally be breaking down the riffs in the "modern metal" tune I've written for you guys! It's about time! I know! :) First off, you'll need to tune your guitar to dropped C: C - G - C - F - A - D In this tune we have 4 main riffs and a quick outro riff (along with a solo that will be broken down in the next tutorial). In the firs...

The first riff is what I call my "groove riff". Now this is not your typical groove riff because we don't have much rhythmic variation. In this case, we have a tremelo picked riff that has an underlying half-time double kick part. The half-time feel in the drums gives it that groove feel.  Theoretically these riffs are all interchangable and the main f...

The second riff in this tune is what I'd call a "thrash" riff. In my mind, the main thing that describes a thrash riff is the back and forth interplay between the kick and snare (again, it's subjective, you might use a different descriptive word). My main concern while playing this riff was to make sure I had accented notes on the 5th string. The way I acom...

The third riff is just a variation of the second riff. Nothing too crazy. All I'm doing here is taking the main phrase and repeating it as to build into the next section. This, accompanied by a blast beat, helps to build into the next section of the tune.  The only difference in technique here is in the right hand. Again I had to stray from using strai...

Topic: Cool Riffs

Riff 4 is what I call a chordal riff. It's obvious why I give it that name. This is a very simple right hand pattern of straight alternate picking. The left hand chordal shapes can be a little difficult so be sure to stretch and not strain too much.

The outro riff is a recap of the main thrash riff. One of my favorite things to do when I'm composing is to bring back ideas that were previously heard in the song. Keep it thematic people! :) Sometimes even if it's just a small chunk of a riff it can have a great nostalgic effect. It sometimes take a keen listener to notice these kind of things but this is...
