Learn Rock and Blues Songwriting in New Lesson from Dave Nassie

Posted on August 31st, 2015 by MDuffy

Dave Nassie
Guitarist Dave Nassie’s latest lesson for Next Level Guitar covers some basics when it comes to rock and blues songwriting.

“All of us at home learn all these great songs at home from so many people, and we want to take that information and have it become our own so we can turn around and write songs with it,” Nassie said.

In the tutorial, Nassie covers tone, structure and chord harmony that any guitarist can use to come up with tunes of their own.

Miss May I I.H.E.

Ohio metallers Miss May I went super heavy in both theme and music for their new video for the track “I.H.E.”

The clip focuses on a teenaged boy who is building a coffin with a harsh authority figure. As they drag it into the woods, the teen can’t take it anymore and turns on his abuser, tackling him and depositing the body in the previously empty coffin.

The intense visual is also complimented by Miss May I’s trademark brutal sound and skittish camera angles.

Currently on the Vans Warped Tour, Miss May I has an album entitled Deathless coming out Aug. 7, but in the meantime, check out the “I.H.E.” video after the jump. (more…)
