On McKinney Music, “the best independent music magazine in the UK“, a groove metal guitar backing track for singers and guitar players featuring ultra-heavy riffs, modern, aggressive drumming, and a nice acoustic melodic section in the middle. Don’t miss the metal rebuild after the latin interlude.
Groove Metal Guitar Backing Track
I wanted this track to sound reminiscent of a Five Finger Death Punch song circa the Wrong Side of Heaven double album era. The rhythm guitars are played on seven strings with the low B downtuned to A for a super-deep, crunchy tone. These are complemented by the lead parts, played on a Jackson Kelly in regular tuning with reverb, completing the sound for the second chorus. The acoustic rhythm guitar in the latin section is in drop D tuning; the lead guitar in the latin section is in regular.
Intro (rhythm guitar)
Verse (rhythm guitar)
Prechorus (rhythm guitar)
Chorus (rhythm guitar)
Prechorus (lead guitar)
This section fades in between bars 73 and 80 so don’t expect to hear much of the opening few bars.
Chorus (lead guitar)
This is definitely my favourite part to play from this track. Enjoy!

Like the Prechorus (lead guitar) section, this fades in gradually, not reaching full volume until the final chorus begins.
