Chapter 8: Think Big – Working with five- and six-string chord voicings, and how to play “Mile Zero”

Focusing again on rhythm guitar and riff writing, in his lesson Mark presents his interesting and inventive chord work in the Periphery song “Mile Zero,” specifically the 16-bar riff played in the song’s intro and verses. The challenge, as he puts it, was to experiment and come up with a part that was jagged and angular but also musically approachable, as opposed to simply sounding unsettling. He achieves both objectives by employing unusual voicings of Dmaj9 and Bm9 that incorporate the use of open strings and close intervals, such as minor seconds, which create a dissonant “bite,” and also by using syncopated rhythms and unusual accent patterns.
