When writing riffs, one of the greatest challenges is to create parts that are not just melodically and rhythmically effective but also memorable and powerful.
I want to briefly touch upon a subject many guitar players (and musicians in general) seem to have a difficult time understanding.
One important topic for musicians is the world of written agreements and how one’s services relate to the industry they work in.
There's a certain level of pride many musicians feel when they claim they are self-taught, and I can understand why.
Guitar players are usually on a mission to improve theirguitar tone. For many, this journey never ends. I dare say we're obsessed with it.
This month, I’d like to explore some ideas that do not fall within the “normal” scope of metal soloing or riff writing.
