Toccata and Fugue in Dm - Overview is a video guitar lesson presented by Dave Celentano and is sourced from Classical Concepts for Rock Guitar.


"Toccata and Fugue" is one of J.S. Bach's most infamous pieces and is truly a classical heavy metal tune with its heavy thunder and ominous chords. This arrangement uses drop D tuning making the alternating A5 and D5 power chords at the intro (bars 1 - 6) accessible with one or no finger at all. In addition, Toccata and Fugue uses several devices and techniques: lead and rhythm interplay, legato, diatonic triads, pedal points, and hybrid picking.
