Heavy metal gallop

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A gallop is a beat or rhythm typically used in traditional heavy metal songs.[1] It is created by playing an eighth note followed by two sixteenth notes (

eighth note
beamed sixteenth notes
),[2] usually on rhythm guitar or drum kit.

One technique on guitar involves strumming palm muted power chords in an up-and-down motion with a pick, thereby creating an ostinato.[3][4] Variations include the triplet gallop[5] and the reverse gallop.[6]

On drums, the technique often uses a double kick pedal. A typical drum gallop is formed around this skeleton:

H- x---x---x---x---|
S- ----o-------o---|
B- o-ooo-ooo-ooo-oo|
