Distinct Kicking Motion – Verboten

For those of you who don’t know, I teach private lessons as my main job. I’ve been doing this for years, but now it’s turned into a full-time gig and exclusively on piano. As a result, I’ve been subjected to variations on the same three chords for months. Whee (Take THAT, punk rock. Piano method books use THREE chords, not four)! This “primary chord” idea was bound to stick with me in some way shape or form… and here is the result. It started as a nice little clean riff using the minor primary chords…

Sometimes, music just expands in a way you don’t expect. That’s really the only explanation of how this guy turned into seven minutes. Clearly, two influences show in this song: Opeth and Dethklok. Love ’em both, seen ’em live once… truly amazing stuff. Opeth, in particular, is the band that really got me back into metal when I was still in college, so they’ll always stick with me. Enjoy!
