In this set of lessons, we'll be teaching you "Empire" as made famous by Queensryche. This is a powerful, dynamic, and dramatic tune that features huge power riffs and an explosive guitar solo. We're in the key of A minor, a 4/4 time signature with some odd bars thrown in sporadically for tension, at a tempo of 80 bpm. In the following lessons, we will explore double stop riffs under a pedalling bass note, variations in riffs and time signatures for tension building, dynamics, and some killer soloing motifs.
