Video: Michael Angelo Batio Shows How to Incorporate Odd Meter Into Heavy Riffs
In this video, shred-meister Michael Angelo Batio demonstrates how to incorporate odd meter into heavy guitar riffs.
Here's a mini-lesson by shred-meister Michael Angelo Batio from his brand-new DVD, "Learn Shred Guitar Volume 2."
This lesson is called "Odds or Evens: Incorporating Odd Meter Into Heavy Riffs," and it features Batio demonstrating the main riff from his song "Hands Without Shadows" from his 2006 album of the same name. The riff is played in 15/8 time. First he plays it at regular speed, then he slows it down for the folks playing along at home.
