    EDIT: woops, misspelled Richie... I love this guy's taste in gear. Even if his signature could use some work (like... not a fucking massive white pickguard).
  2. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    Hitting the studio Saturday to do vox for my EP. After doing a few practice runs I'm realising there are a few parts where I would benefit from tuning down another half step. I don't want to change the key of the vocals completely because I really like where they sit with the key of the riff. So...

    Since Drew already mentioned killer riffs - I you had to name one song from your favorites as the best use of killer riffs, what would it be? One song only... Mine is Alice Cooper's "Cold Ethyl."

    https://soundcloud.com/henryschreck/random-riffing-2-custom-kemper-profiles-d-tuning For the past few months I went from B to C and now I am at D tuning. Something about tuning lower loses that sharpness that I like. Sloppy, non edited recording testing out 2 custom Kemper profiles.

    I haven't heard from this band since like, 2012, but I liked them back then, even though they didn't have much material out they looked like they were going to get big. So 5 years is a long time, but they eventually delivered. Saw this announced a while back and had the feeling it was going to...

    Hello all! I just uploaded a new video showcasing a few riffs from my upcoming album tracks. All recorded on my Ice Explorer w/ Lundgren M6 pickups, straight into EZMix with EZDrummer drum tracks. Would love for you all to check 'em out!

    Not gonna watch the whole thing, but I'd pay him a beer, because obviously he knows what is best in life. Maiden riffs. EDIT: should read "ultimate" in the thread title. Jesus, what is it with me and typos in thread titles?...

    Hello everyone I'm new to this forum, and I'm also new at uploading videos to YouTube. I play a variety of styles of music including death metal, metalcore, and hardcore. I was wondering if you guys could check out my videos on YouTube and tell me what everyone thinks and what improving i...

  10. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    It seems that most musicians I know have their "go to" riffs when they are soundchecking their gear before a show or even rehearsal. It probably has something to do with hearing a familiar riff sounding killer on our rig that reassures us that we are dialed in. So, what are your "go to"...

    I saw this video a couple of years ago and was like "dude, he plays the riffs wrong!"... I still think it sounds wrong. He adds one extra open E chord on Wicker Man before C-G :ugh: The 2 Minutes "C hammer" thing on video he plays G :ugh: Listen here: The Wicker Man does NOT have the extra...

    So there are two things I fucking love, techy thrash riffs and trills. That's pretty much it. Recording trill riffs that strictly stick to one string isn't that problematic, but whenever I go to (double track) record shit that switches strings the integrity of my trills falls apart. Ignore the...

    Obscure speed metal is best metal.

    Back up your iPhone. Or you too will lose 249 wah-wah riffs. And one Ted Nugent Stranglehold riff. Kirk Hammett Lost 250 Potential Metallica Riffs

    Scar Symmetry has been one of my favorite bands since their very first album and I bought most of their albums immediately after they were released, but after Christian left the band and they brought in two "sub-par vocalists" to fill in for Christian, my enthusiasm for them weakened quite a...

    We've been on a bit of an odd journey lately. And by 'We' I mean my hard rock band. We totally stagnated and felt desperately uninspired due to the lack of interest from any (good) vocalists. After spending weeks recording a demo, sitting on it for months whilst searching for someone, we...

    A very, very cool interview of James Hetfield and he is playing some Massive riffs! :flex:

    Some cool videos of have been uploaded of Richie and Billy showing how to play some of their rad tunes in The Winery Dogs! (Such a rad riff)

    Okay, so maybe that's not entirely true. But the very first measure of the tune is definitely a rip-off of Disposable Heroes! https://soundcloud.com/adammcook/the-destructionator Here's the Axe-FX II patch for all you geeks out there. Axe-Change - Download Preset - 5150 + Boogie...
