EX­AM­PLE 3 METAL STYLE RHYTHM

Guitar Techniques - - PLAY -

The metal genre tends to cen­tre around mi­nor tonal­i­ties for their som­bre and men­ac­ing qual­ity, but the Mixoly­dian mode does some­times make an ap­pear­ance. songs like sad But True by Me­tal­lica and Hand Of Doom by Black sab­bath are note­wor­thy ex­am­ples of how ef­fec­tive the Mixoly­dian mode can be in this field. This chro­mat­i­cally fu­elled riff uses tried and tested pow­er­chord fin­ger­ings and is easy, yet most sat­is­fy­ing, to play.
