Rule of Cool - TV Tropes
I have to admit, death metal guitar isn't an easy to teach even if I was face to face with you because I have to trust you have at least some sense of rhythm and timing here! The fact remains the same though - start slow, and gradually build up speed with a metronome or, even better, use the drum tracks I provide in this lesson! Tremolo picking and more complex palm muted "blast picking". Before we begin part 2 , you need to be confident with everything covered in part 1 - mainly palm muting and alternate picking. If you don't know them, you probably don't stand a chance with this lesson, so head back to Part 1 where you'll find the appropriate links! It's mostly used alongside the drummer's blast beats and these elements together create a frantic, chaotic yet controlled atmosphere. So, just to recap - we're using alternate picking, down-up-down-up-etc.
Rule of Cool
