It’s time to plug in and take a close look at Matt Bellamy’s supermassi­ve shred techniques

-

As one of the most forward-thinking and progressiv­e guitarists on the planet, it’s safe to say there’s plenty to learn from Matt Bellamy – and we’re covering a fair amount of ground here with a set of lessons breaking down his style for you. We’re looking at Matt’s classical-tinged chord progressio­ns, his riffing style and blues approaches, plus we explain some of his shred techniques, too.

Probably the most important element to be aware of is his timing. Matt’s a tight player, and, whereas funk and blues guitarists tend to have a looser style, pushing notes early or laying back and behind the beat, Bellamy typically plays somewhat metronomic­ally. Bear this in mind as you work through our tab examples. Keep Contributo­r: your timing Charlie tight and Griffiths try to lock in with the drums when you jam along to Engraved by Digitalmus­icart.com our backing tracks. This is the secret that’ll get you closer to that trademark Muse feel.
