In this rhythm guitar lesson, now available on YouTube.com, Silvio Gazquez teaches how to play the intro from shredder guitarist Marty Friedman band Megadeth’s “A Tout Le Monde”. This melodic riff is played with a clean guitar tone and is in a minor key. The riff is composed of moving bass line and a repeating sequence of open strings in the higher registry of the chords and is performed using the techniques of arpeggiating and string skipping. Gazquez performs the riff both slowly and up to tempo so it is easy to follow along. Guitar TAB’s for this lesson are available at GuitarControl.com.
Megadeth was formed in Los Angles California in 1983 by singer/guitarist Dave Mustaine (ex Metallica guitarist). Megadeth has had a revolving door of lead guitarists since its inception, one of which being Marty Friedman who played on the bands most successful album to date, 1992’s Count Down to Extinction that sold multi platinum. Megadeth has sold over 50 million records world wide and has had 11 Grammy nominations. Friedman is ranked as one of the greatest Shred guitarists of all time and is well known for his work in Cacophony with guitarist Jason Becker.
