LESSON 22
LEARNING THE GROOVE
HOOKING UP TO HARD ROCK
Listen to “Don’t Look Down.This tune has a standard rock/metal groove. It is a heavy feel,with very simpledrum and bass parts. These parts must be simple because they are intended to be played in large arenas,whereechoes would make busier parts sound muddy. It’s a case of “less is more.”During the solos,the guitar doubles the bass,playing power chords in the second part. Doubling the bass isvery common in hard rock.Listen to the first part to “Don’t Look Down.Find the pulse,and strum dampened strings on the backbeat,along with the snare drum hits.Tap the quarter-note pulse with your foot,strum the backbeat,and count the sixteenths. When you are ready,do this along with the recording.
LEARNING “DON’T LOOK DOWN”
Play the rhythms of the first riff. Accent the syncopation. When you are ready,strum along with the recording.
