One of the most widely known sub-genres of rock is big enough to be a whole course of its own. This style of music developed when the guitars became even more distorted, the music became faster, and the guitar solos got longer and also faster; while the lyrics often focused on fantasy elements and science fiction.

This style of music was pioneered by bands like Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin and many others and became known as "heavy metal". Today this legacy is carried on by bands like Pantera, Metallica, and many more. In this tutorial we're going to break down and play through a practice tune that incorporates some of the many signature elements of this sound, so let's get started!
