Guitar lessons: Immortal and Emperor

I found these cool little guitar lessons by Ihsahn & Samoth from Emperor and Abbath from Immortal. Very cool to see/hear these pieces on just guitar!

These guys are one of the best guitar-duos in the world, perhaps at the same level as King/Hanneman or Murray/Smith. They play so casually and cool and still sound just like on the record, genius at work!

Isahn is actually a music instructor (imagine having him as a music teacher at school…) and also has some amazing video’s for GuitarWorld called ‘Left Hand Path‘.

Check out Abbath playing ‘Kashmir’ and then the riff from ‘Tyrants’, I must admit I never noticed it before.

What a contrast to Ihsahn! Abbath clearly isn’t an instructor (as he readily admits) but a very skilled player nevertheless (“I’m very competent on my shit but also very incompetent…”) . You’ve just gotta love the noise and comments he makes while playing and how he plays with his face like he’s playing a live show in full corpsepaint, I guess it’s mandatory when playing these songs.

Some bonus material here:

Emperor: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 Seems like a different edit of the same material

Immortal: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7   Battles in the North!
