Killswitch Style Barred 7th Chords

By Eric Hufschmid


Hey hardcore fans,

Today we’re learning a riff in the style of metal masters Killswitch Engage. Killswitch is known for mixing up their chugging brutality with softer ballad style sections. To create these lighter sections, Killswitch often uses 7th chords to give their songs a slightly darker feel.

Have fun! We hope you like the riff!


Practice this riff and try to master it. Then, try to create your own riff using barred 7th chords.
