A huge majority of Hard Rock/Metal progressions are comprised of root/fifth intervals, or power chords. A power chord is not major or minor. This, makes it easy, for a musician and go a Major or Minor route, and use different modes and arpeggio's to paint a rich sonic landscape. This First example, shows the nice flexability you can have with just an E5 interval, I'm in arpeggio mode here the chords are: Em7, E major, and E minor arpeggio's, I also threw a bit of the blues scale in for good measure. If this doesn't seem to clear by now, don't fret. I will attempt to clear a few things up on future installments of this lesson, Have Fun!
