Metal Health (Bang Your Head) Guitar Lesson – Quiet Riot

In this Metal Health guitar lesson video, I will show you how to play this great classic metal anthem by Quiet Riot in it's entirety.

The tuning is standard tuning, E A D G B E. However, the original recording is not quite A440, instead it is slightly flat. So playing along with the original recording might not sound great to you unless you match the tuning.

The intro to this song is instantly recognizable and so fun to play. I will take you through each section of the song in the order that each appears on the original recording.

I will also cover guitarist Carlos Cavazo's guitar solo note-for-note. This solo uses many of the guitar techniques that dominated the 80's including fast blues based licks, unison octaves, pick tapping and tremolo picking.

In addition to the main solo, I will also cover the lead guitar fills played during the breakdown section. For the outro solo, I will just demonstrate the scale patterns that are used instead of breaking it down note-for-note.

Have fun learning this metal classic by Quiet Riot! Carl...

    So, is it in E Flat or somewhere in between E and E-Flat? ….Because that can be a possibility too,
