REVOCATION – Dave Davidson On Using Jazz Chords in Metal

Now this shit right I here I can get behind HARD. Ol’ Headless Dave is at it again, dropping fat knowledge bombs about some of the larger jazz-type chords he uses in his compositions, using actual Revocation songs as examples.


Both Max and I are big fans of jazz, and of Revocation, and highly endorse the influence of jazz in metal and having a solid understanding of theory to make your metal better, like Dave is doing here. To learn more about this, be sure to check out Max’s Jazz Dispatch recurring column, and Trey’s Theory Corner. For more spectacular original Dave Davidson content, check out this Gear Gods video.

Thanks to Guitar World for the video!

If you haven’t seen Max’s video lesson with Dave, well, you better get with it (Presented by ProZone):

As Editor-in-Chief of Gear Gods, I've been feeding your sick instrument fetishism and trying unsuccessfully to hide my own since 2013. I studied music on both coasts (Berklee and SSU) and now I'm just trying to put my degree to some use. That's a music degree, not an English one. I'm sure you noticed.
