For Trivium, working with producer David Draiman helped bring home the importance of groove on Vengeance Falls, but any lead player worth his salt respects the importance of honing those rhythm chops.
MATT: “I always say that rhythm playing is equal to, if not more important than lead playing, because lead guitar only comes out for bouts... As a kid, I would isolate parts of songs that I felt were exercises I could use.
"For example, down-picking – the intro riff for [Metallica’s] Blackened is a good one for that. I would sit there and loop it and break it down, and master the song with a metronome.”
