GO TO: Andrew Wasson of Creative Guitar Studio answers a viewers question... Q: My favorite style of music is classic metal. I like Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, Saxon, The Scorpions and WASP and bands like them. My 1st question has to do with playing riffs on E and A strings as opposed to A and D strings. In your opinion, do you think there's a difference? And 2nd , what scales are mainly used to come up with the heavy "Riffs of Doom" that these bands have become famous for. - Obert, Denmark. A: By placing riffs on the low strings, it will add depth and darkness (and gloom) as well as more chunk due to those larger diameter strings. The principle scale used in classic metal is the Natural Minor (or Aeloian mode). However, for riff writing, we want to understand the intervals of this scale in a linear fashion - along the neck.
