Description

This lesson by Dee J Nelson features six exercises in 7/8 time.  They all fit together to form a complete rhythm track with a melodic shred solo.

  • Six progressive metal exercises in 7/8
  • Three of these are rhythm riffs
  • Three of these comprise the solo
  • Heavy Drop-D Tuning
  • The Phrygian Blues Scale
  • Transitions & Turn-Arounds
  • Driving Power Chords in an Odd Meter

This lesson is based on the techniques covered in Dee J’s “Monster Power Chords Volume Two”– drop-D tuning, odd meters and Phrygian riffs.

Sweep picking is just the tip of the iceberg in this weekly lesson jam packed with odd meter madness! In this lesson Dee J takes you through the steps of creating a rhythm guitar backing track in 7/8 time and gives you a guitar solo that works on melodic contours within this unique and widely used time signature.

In this weekly lesson Dee J builds on materials reviewed in the Monster Power Chords Series including;

As if that wasn’t enough, this lesson then pushes the envelope into advanced materials covered in Lead Guitar DNA by introducing a sweet melodic guitar solo inspired by Michael Angelo Batio. This solo specifically focuses on the connection of arpeggios and sweep picking techniques applied in 7/8 time. BUT WAIT! There’s more. Dee J also scratches the surface of integrating a harmonized melody in the rhythm guitar parts. While this lesson is packaged as a single weekly lesson it is really a 2 segment lesson rolled into 1 covering both intermediate rhythm guitar materials and advanced soling techniques.
