Heavy metal guitar is about more than just huge, aggressive riffs. There is a myriad of different techniques that player use to get the perfect tone.
Join Oliver Saggerson from Bulletscript as he discusses all the techniques he employs in order to sculpt his personal tone. At 11am, on 26 November 2016 at Paul Bothner Music in Claremont.
Each player will use a variety of Heavy Metal Techniques and Feel to highlight their personal tone. Each of these personalised tones will offer a different feel, and convey a different emotion.
Metal offers hundreds of different techniques for each sub-genre in metal. From the intensity and speed of sweep picking to the low and heavy Djent style single note riffs. Each sub-genre is unique, and each player in each sub-genre is different.
Sure, thrash metal players use similar techniques. It is the implementation of each of these techniques that set players apart from one another.
