Filed under: Industry News |


I know it’s not exactly tech related but it’s still cool. Maybe I should create an ‘offbeat’ category?!

Alfred Music Publishing, the world’s largest educational music publisher, releases Dimebag Darrell: Riffer Madness, an instructional DVD teaching the signature riffs and patterns of Dimebag Darrell. As the founding member of Pantera and Damageplan, Dimebag is recognized as one of the most influential guitarist in metal music.

Dime’s good friend and protégé, metal maestro Nick Bowcott, helps pass Dime’s torch to the next generation in this much-anticipated DVD. Nick takes 97 of Dime’s critical riffs and patterns and uses them as a jumping-off point to help guitarists play their favorite guitar parts—and more importantly—understand the creativity, attitude, feeling, and intention underlying each pattern. Topics include: killer rhythm guitar, power grooves, pick squeals, psychotic syncopation, holes of silence, chromatics, diabolical dyads, and much more.
