We all want stronger, catchier and more powerful songs. In modern rock and metal, the breakdown is an essential part of the song, and one that definitely needs work. Here is a very cool video from the talented Cosmin Lupu on how to build up a breakdown in modern music.
There are some great ideas here and some interesting quotes for the analytical mind such as “music is mathematics for the soul”. Here at Guitar Domination, we love the sound of modern metal, so this lesson is one not to miss. Developing your groove and creating strong breakdowns is one of the best ways to really wow your audience, but like all other aspects of guitar playing it takes lots of practice, so get cracking.
