Watch the Toccata and Fugue in Dm online guitar lesson by Dave Celentano 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.
