I hope you enjoyed the “Rock Riffs Made Simple”
video I sent out last week.
I’m saying “wow” because there’s over
120 comments so far on that video.
The only complaint was “Give me more!”
So today we’ve got more — on the blog you’ll find
a new video clip with 2 of the 12 “Rock Riff Power Factors”.
Of course with the DVDs, you’ll get the FULL TABS.
We’ve got more videos coming for you soon…
Here’s a brief description of all 12 Rock Riff Power Factors:
Rock Riff Power Factor #1: Master Your Sound Throttle
You’re going to learn how Tool uses
this trick to “juice a riff” multiple
ways to get huge pay-offs in the same song.
This is also the “secret sauce” that makes
the key notes “punch”. If you fail to do this, your
riffs just won’t have any “oomph” to them.
Rock Riff Power Factor #2: Cover The Ear With Delight
This next secret is basically the opposite
of Rock Riff Power Factor #1. When you use them together
you’re going to create “wicked varying intensity”.
Rock Riff Power Factor #3: Punching Rock Riffs
This is another way to make your riffs stick
out and blow your friends and fans away.
Rock Riff Power Factor #4: Silent Heaviness
Simple. Powerful. Heavy. That’s how I describe this
easy to implement secret. In fact, this is such a
powerful technique live that you
don’t want to abuse it too much.
Rock Riff Power Factor #5: Slow Heavy Grooves
Learn how Metallica uses this to create
some of their heaviest songs come to life.
Rock Riff Power Factor #6: Pedal To The Metal
This is one of Megadeth’s favorite techniques.
When you combine this with “Rock Riff Power Factor #5” —
you’ve got a great formula for a song.
You’re going to kickstart the adrenaline with this one…
Rock Riff Power Factor #7: Open String Magic
This is a great technique to learn as a beginner
or intermediate guitarist — because
you’ll instantly sound like a pro.
Rock Riff Power Factor #8: Drop It Down
Rock Riff Power Factor #9: The World’s Greatest Rock Tuning
Very few guitar players know this.
It’s truly an amazing “secret” that will open
up new dimensions you don’t even know exist.
Rock Riff Power Factor #10: Simply Rocking
Sometimes the best thing you can do is something
that’s super simple, super easy and it’s sounds amazing.
Remember this: the 2 right notes
sound better than 100 bad ones.
Rock Riff Power Factor #11: Slippery Slide Sounds
Learn the technique behind one of Pantera’s most
classic riffs ever. It’s easy and it can
easily spice up your songs.
Rock Riff Power Factor #12 Harmonics Convergence
As a rock guitarist, you NEED to know how to play all
types of harmonics. Randy Rhoades and Zack Wylde
are masters of this.
Anyway, a picture says a thousand words, and a
video says a million, so just go check out
today’s blog video.
Virtuwul is dying to know what you think.
I’m also curious too.
