Watch the Gunshot Trivia online guitar lesson by Chris Buono from 50 Metal Guitar Licks You MUST Know

The new riders of the metal stage assure that this music is in good hands and that there's much more quality heaviness coming our way. One such purveyor of all things loud is Trivium, which features the double guitar work of Matt Heafy (also lead vocalist) and Corey Beaulieu. Both Heafy and Beaulieu serve as soloists and it's with cool ideas such as this licks' sequence of doubled three-note-per-string patterns played in 16th note triplets that make their fret work the real deal. You can hear traces of this idea in "A Gunshot to the Head of Trepidation" from the Ascendancy CD.
