The Project

To all metal guitar aficionados! A work that will change your way of playing and composing guitar riffs.

“Metal Brasileiro” is a book series that brings the wealth and variety of the main rhythms found in different areas of Brazil applied to the guitar focused on metal.


The first volume combines the samba swing, an unmistakable style well known around the world as “the face of Brazil” with the aggressiveness of metal resulting in a different “accent”. This becomes evident in the examples where the same guitar riff is recorded at first on a metal groove and then on a samba groove, where the idea originally came from.

Its objective is to collaborate in the technical development of this musical style and to provide new ways to create guitar riffs.

Besides being a book concerning the guitar, it also opens the possibility of studies for drummers.
