    Sextuplet strumming patterns are one of Opeth's most used rhythms.

    In One by Metallica, Ive just recently learned how to count, but I always did it right, because of the way I hummed it. I went "digada digada DUM! digada digada DUM!"

    Carnatic music’s Konnakol system is super useful for verbal counting like this. For example a 3 subdivision would be “thakida” and a 6 would be “thakida thathimi”. The syllables used are generally easier to say really fast and flow well together, cos they alternate. There are words defined for other subdivisions too.

    Safe sextuplets in a nutshell: always use protection when you bid-a-lee your did-a-lee.

    Bloody good video this. I do have one more way of counting the sextuplets mind, but it’s subtly close, and it’s how I count sextuplets on my bass drums.

    That Dream Theater sextuplet pattern is also in the intro to The Dance of Eternity

  • Reply Bob Carroll April 28, 2019 at 12:54 am

    Randy Rhodes had great examples of both sextuplet breakdowns in the Crazy Train solo. The initial finger tapping sextuplets are broken into three groups of two, while the runs leading up to the end are two groups of three-note-per-string legato runs.

    Also, I think another non-metal example of partial sextuplets that everyone knows would be John Williams’ Imperial March.

    I just watch. Never really comment, but I have to say that this channel does such an incredible job on speaking and conveying points. When I watch other channels, i don’t find myself learning and enjoying the same way as I do with this channel. Thumbs up! Excellent work.

    For anyone wanna se some insane sextuplet action on the guitar, there’s a sick ascending part early on in Jason Richardson’s solo in the song «Nasty», where he plays sextuplets at 130bpm.

    guys check out imperial march and also Am I evil for some sixteen note triplets

    Hey I am trying to write guitar riffs and get some drums to go along with it but I have no idea how to count the BPM of guitar and I can hardly even count the BPM of drums so how do I do that? I know I'm supposed to make it fit but I don't even know what to set the metronome to fit it into or how, I am very confused and you are enlightening so I would appreciate it if you could help me out because there are no other videos about how to count the BPM of a guitar riff
