“Lamb of God” Style Riffs by Will Flaherty

Learn two brutally heavy riffs in this free lesson from “Metal Rhythm Extreme”!  Will walks you clearly through all the elements, including the 12/8 time signature, Drop-D tuning, and chromatic passages.

Notice Will’s excellent technique in both hands.  His pick hand and arm are relaxed and move with precision.  His fret hand is also relaxed, wrist is forward and fingers are in line with the frets.  If you notice tension when you are playing, drop the tempo and focus on relaxing, then keep that same movement when you increase your speed!
