Where's Wes and Grim when I need them,

I really haven't played much heavy stuff since I'vebeen playin. It's mostly been classic rock and newer alt rock kinda stuff but I really want to piss my neighbors off...OK just kidding.

I really want to learn some chunky heavy riffs. A friend of mine brought over the new Limp Bizkit CD, OK I'm not really a fan but there some chunky riffs in there I'd like to learn. I think one of the songs was Fight.

Looking for riffs in that vein, wondering if anyone of you have anything along those lines?

Thanks,

Chris

Don't really know any Limp Bizkit (although I'm proud of the boys from my hometown Jacksonville, Fla.) I love that song Break Things. I know how to play Faith, although that's not too heavy.

Grim has been gone a couple of weeks now. Maybe he's just really busy becoming a Rock Star. We will be able to say we knew him before he made the big time!

My old tabs for Down With the Sickness and Voices were pretty heavy, but I think they got messed up when the site was down back in April. Check them out.

I will tab something pretty heavy for you today.

Chris,

The band I do lights etc for does a lot of heavy stuff. Bizkit, ALice in Chains etc. I think I still have your e-mail. If you want I can pop you a few tabs when I get home this afternoon.

Aaron,

Yeh that would be cool. besides the down tuning there's a lot of palm muting in most of that stuff and it would help me to practice that more.

Chris,

Sure thing. PM me your e-mail just in case. :) I'll be home in about 40 minutes.

Actually I believe grim has been removed from the site, along with the posts... as there were a few songs he posted up with chunky heavy riffs.

There wasn't any altercation.

I don't want to speak about this case in particular, but in general:

Anyone who repeatedly violates the TOS, ignores plenty of warnings, ignores plenty of opportunities to correct the behavior, doesn't take advantage of some time off to cool down, and makes a final violation of the TOS will be banned. In other words, you need to work at it pretty hard to get banned.

In the almost three years I have been here, we have had only two users fit that category.

About Grim's posts, they were removed at his request.

Pantera is the way to go as far as heavy, chunky riffs go. Although Dimebag's trademark pinch harmonics dominate most of the riffs, they have some pretty easy, really heavy, slow stuff in between.

Like the song 'Walk'. It can be learned in a matter of minutes (Excluding solo) and feels great:

||------------------------|---------------------|-----|--------------------||
||------------------------|---------------------|-----|--------------------||
||o-----------------------|---------------------|-----|-------------------o||
||o-----------------------|---------------------|--%--|----------------x-o||
||------------------------|---------------------|-----|-------------x-----||
||--0---0-2-1-0---0-2-1-0-|---0-2-1-0---0-2-1-0-|-----|---0-2-1-0----------||

It's simplistic, sure.. But it gets the job done.

If you're up for more of a challenge, here's some other riffs from ye olde Dimebag:

Mouth For War (One of my personal favorites):

|--------------------------------------|-----------------|
|--------------------------------------|--2.75-2.75-2.75-|
|--------------------------------------|--2.75-2.75-2.75-|
|--------------------------------------|-----------------|
|-2---5/9------5------5/9----5/9----5--|-----------------|
|-0---3/7---0--3---0--3/7-0--3/7--0-3--|-----------------|

Becoming (played partly with a synth, but this should do the trick):

|------2s9---------------------2s9------------|
|------2s9---------------------2s9------------|
|------2s9---------------------2s9------------|
|---------------------------------------------|
|----------------------------------------4--5-|
|-0--0----2-1-0--0----2-1-0--0----2-1-0--2--3-|

And last, but not least at all, in my humble opinion, the definition of a heavy riff.. Cemetary Gates:

|----------------------------|-------------------------------|
|----------------------------|-------------------------------|
|----------------------*4----|-------------------------------|
|-7-7-7-7--------------------|-7-7-7-7-----------------------|
|-7-7-7-7-7p6h7-8-7h8----7h8-|-7-7-7-7-7p6h7-8-7h8----7----6-|
|-5-5-5-5--------------------|-5-5-5-5-------------*8---*7---|
. . . . . . . .

|----------------------------|-------------------------------|
|----------------------------|-------------------------------|
|----------------------*4----|-------------------------------|
|-7-7-7-7--------------------|-7-7-7-7-----------------------|
|-7-7-7-7-7p6h7-8-7h8----7h8-|-7-7-7-7-7p6h7-8-7h8----7----6-|
|-5-5-5-5--------------------|-5-5-5-5-------------*8---*7---|

Just one point on the pantera stuff, you forgot the tuning.
Dimebag uses Drop D, with the low string an extra 1/4 step detuned.
Though your tabs would seem to be best with the whole guitar down a step.

Oh, yeah. Sorry about that.

Oh, and by the way. Since you mentioned Limp Bizkit, I figured you would need a little upbeat heavy and not stoner-rock heavy as in Kyuss, Electric Wizard or Dozer kinda stuff. If you want really heavy, as in slow, dragging music, check them out.

I think the best drop D metal stuff I've heard is probably stuff by tool. Kinda different, but definetly fun to play. That song schizm absoelutely rocks, and is relatively easy to learn.

The meaning of life? I've never heard a simpler question! Music.

It may be really good, but it's not heavy-heavy.

Stinkfist by Tool may be more in that area.

I have the Tool CD and I wouldn't really classify them as heavy, but I do like the song and if you have a good tab for it I'd like to see it.

Yea Pantera is definitely up there in the heavy department. I don't have alot of heavy stuff that I listen to regularly but I really would love to play some.

I like the first Korn album that had some really chunky riffs in it.
