Did you know the piano is a percussion instrument? For some guitarists, the guitar can ALSO be a percussion instrument. Such is the case for the well-known chunky style of Sevendust rhythm guitarist and songwriter John Connolly. Getting his start as a drummer in a signed band called Peace Dogs, John found himself taking what he knew about hard-hitting rhythm and groove and creating a guitar sound which eventually defined an entire musical movement within nu metal.  That sound was the backbone of the band Sevendust. This band proved to be the perfect home for John’s percussive playing, which, when paired with insanely low tunings, a soulful R&B vocalist, and a cast of band mates who all played drums, created the iconic Sevendust sound.  This is a sound full of crunchy down-tuned chunk paired with mesmerizing choruses and layered harmonies. It’s a sound unlike any other, and FRET12 is here to show you behind the scenes like never before. If you’re looking to learn machine-like, ultra-precise rhythm playing, percussive palm muting and solid right hand technique, and all about how to tune a guitar lower than most basses, this is going to be the teacher for you!
