Hey guys, and welcome to Metal For Breakfast, Volume 1. The following will consist of some picking shapes or patterns. Play these types of licks clean and with distortion. This is important because if you use distortion all the time, it can mask how the lick actually sounds, but if you play it clean, you can hear your mistakes.
Lick 1 is a chugging riff in the style of a Bay Area Thrash sound circa the late Eighties that combines chords and single note runs with fast alternate picking. Lee Style. Lick 02 - Classical-Style Arpeggios This is a lead idea based off of arpeggios with a string skip on the B-string. Mike demonstrates the fingerings of each part of the lick.
Though most of the solo that was recorded for the song uses a straight natural minor scale, during the improv part I use the Pentatonic scale with the flat 5th which I think adds a bit of depth. This guitar lick starts on the 7th fret using the aeolian scale mode. Be sure to use a bit of vibrato on the last note. Slide up to the F on the G string, 11th fret and decend from there all notes are played on the G string.
I remember a very funny TV commercial already from my teenage years which made Mattoni known all around Czech republic and Slovakia. The beer has been made in town ever since. Get apple strudel and tea. During my cold visit of Karlovy Vary, I would always freeze after half a day outside taking photos in temperatures below zero. That forced me to get a cup of hot ginger tea at the Cafe Elefant.
