I have focused on lead for so long that all i do is play lead,and I used to be a pretty good rhythm guitarist but now my rhythm is olny descent I want to do some odd rhythms like a gallop followed by a reverse gallop any execises or riffs would help greatly.

umm i think that BYOB by system of a down should be kinda hard.

Spheres Of Madness - Decapitated. Especially the intro but the rest of the song is pretty tricky as well. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qfRGF-MWYsE
Disposable Heroes - Metallica (somewhere in the middle of the song (?))
Thrasher- Evile (intro)
Spheres Of Madness is easily the hardest one out of those three.

Well have you looked at Spheres Of Madness as I advised?
You could always check out Meshuggah if you want complicated stuff RHYTHM-wise. Milennium Cyanide Christ is a bitch to play timing wise, it's not that difficult otherwise but it's really hard to get the timing correct...

If you have an 8 string, go play Meshuggah. As you probably don't have an 8, just take their rhythms and practice them with some power chords or whatever.

Well, why don't you figure it out yourself? There's only so many combinations of rhythms in a bar made of E and S...

Meshuggah's Bleed will redefine your definition of picking stamina. And, really tough rhythm. In fact, most Meshuggah rhythms are hard... Check for yourself:

Hey don't forget the weirdest type of gallop, eSe.

And if you want hard rhythms try Iced Earth's stuff. Stormrider for example is quite hard, well for me, galloping at 200 bpm is just crazy.

There is one type of gallop: eSS. Anything else is just a combination of eighth and sixteenth notes.

So the gallop is..

Im assuming S = Semiquaver, and E = Eighth Note?

The real gallop is, E S S

The reverse gallop is, S S E

The 'other' gallop, (or the rhythm for the theme to "Tintin") S E S

Right?


There isnt any 'other gallop'. There's just ESS, and SSE.

Slayer, Pantera, Some Metallica songs, BYOB by System of a Down is surprisingly challenging and is also extremely fun.

Again, the only rhythm called the gallop is ESS. SSE is the "reverse gallop" and SES is something else.

Triplets are not the gallop either.


Learn your nomenclature, folks.


E=8th notes
S=16th note

Rational Eyes by Threat Signal. Matter of fact any Threat Signal song will do. Plus they got some badass leads too.
