MegaBrazilian-born guitarist Kiko Loreiro He uploaded a new 12-minute video in which he answers a number of questions submitted by fans. You can now watch the question-and-answer session below.

asked Lu MegaLeader, guitarist/vocalist Dave MustaineHe uses music theory to compose the band’s songs. Kiko Answered (as written by BLABBERMOUTH.NET): “No. He doesn’t use theory at all – not at all.

“You have to understand that people are different,” he continued. “A creator can play something and just imagine the mountain, the sea, the hell, the war — imagine things, those sounds. He can tie that scum to a machine gun or he can tie that wildfire to a bomb blast, just in case. Mega. But he can play a chord and imagine the mountain, the sun, the sail – whatever. So some people like this. Some other people need theory – they need nouns, and they need the structured things to understand it. That’s why some people really relate to theory and love theory. I like theory. Some other people don’t feel that they need a theory of composition and creativity, because it’s all about imagination. And of course, the basic things they might know – “Oh, that’s a major chord,” “This is a minor chord,” “This is the name of the notes, like E, A, D,” but in the end, it doesn’t really matter either.

“So, do you Dave Mustaine use theory? no he did not “.

In a previous video, Kiko He was asked if he learned anything from playing mustine Over the past six years, Kiko He said, “Oh, yeah, man. Oh, yeah. I don’t know if you’re asking about things to do with the guitar, but I think my answer would be more, like…I learned to watch him strive to be non-stop, to be strong, to look for Excellence, to demand excellence from everyone, everyone delivers excellence, gives their best. Leadership… What else? I don’t know… Fight for your condition. Fight for your music. Fight for your band. Fans. To be an artist, and to be creative [and] Combine all these things – be professional and at the same time creative and at the same time have fun doing things. Yes, a lot of experience in the field of music too – in the field of music in general, in the music world.

“As for the guitar, too,” he continued, “the core of thrash metal.” “All the beats – basically the beats and then the position and the strength, the atmosphere, the strength, the intensity. So, all that stuff as you play. Mixing technical stuff with a lot of energy – like metal with punk with attitude. I think I’m a better rhythm player because of just hanging out and playing Dave All those years – since 2015. He also composes – he composes in a very different way than me. And I think watching and learning from the way he does it too.

“Well, a lot of things,” Kiko added. “I can make a whole video of things I learned from Dave And from all Mega expertise.”

In an October 2015 interview with Irish sunAnd mustine It was full of praise Laurel, saying, “A lot of times guitarists don’t know how to add to something – they’ll put something in there like a breast on a bull, superfluous. Kiko We arrived and immediately started making some really good suggestions that we applied [to MEGADETH‘s 2016 album, ‘Dystopia’]. When he first came, I knew he had the ability but I didn’t know if the songwriting technique and talent would show up so soon. “

He continued, “What was great about the suggestions that Kiko It was that they weren’t just guitar – he made a part of a song called “I hate you” [that made it] Come really. In fact, that was one of the songs where he made a huge melodic contribution in the chorus and I said, “Man, that sounds like something.”

according to DaveAnd Kiko Possess all the items required to become a part of a legendary metal work like Mega.

“For me – quite simply – if you want to be a musician, it’s one thing. If you want to be a rock star, it’s another,” mustine He said. “But if you want to be legendary, you need three very important components: you have to have ability, you need to look, and you have to have attitude. Without all those three things, it is like trying to have a three legged milk chair without three legs – Will not work. “

He continued, “I found with Kiko, his ability was astronomical, with his attitude he was very confident in what he did – there is a difference between confidence and arrogance. In appearance, he is very elegant and very submissive on the street, but on stage he completely commands his performance. When he came to Nashville to visit me, I didn’t make him play most of the day he was there. I just wanted to hang out with it and it’s been a really long time since I stopped by with a guitar player before I used it. I usually listen to his gameplay and then say, “Okay, we’ll work on it.” I didn’t want to do that again. hanging out with KikoAll I needed was to eat lunch and kick and talk music – I knew he was the right guy. “
