Now Rock and Metal have changed a lot since it's solo crazy and innovative forefathers. Nowadays the modern rock/metal band that makes it big uses a few of the same techiques to put simple but quick riffs with a the occasianl lick and less than clever lyrics with occasianal profanity, does that mean it's bad music? Easy music, yes... but not bad, I enjoy a lot of today's modern rockers, and not all of them use the same bag of tricks, but most do, so here is that bag of tricks.
here is a table of contents:
page 2: Two fifths? Where's the the third?
page 3: Rythem over hamony, no notes for you!
page 4: Distortion, lay it on heavy
page 5: let's not play at all
while this paradical lesson on a lot of the lackluster bands of today, these techniques are useful in music, but don't overuse them or you will be mocked. I at least expect you to know the notes on your first two strings. And we will be doing this in the key of F today, cause that's the grade you deserve if this ends up being all the guitar knowledge you have in your life, do yourself a favor read the rest of my lessons, and many others here at wholenote.com, and if you don't know what I mean by the Key of F, take you oddly shaped guitar with too much built in distortion and smack upside you lead singers head and consider it a vaction till you know the basics.
