E: One of the seven letters associated with the pitches in a twelve note octave. In metal, a 6-string guitar tuned in standard has a low e string tuned at a frequency of around 82.4 hertz and a high e string tuned to around 329.6 hertz. A low e string on a 4-string bass in standard tuning has a frequency of about 41.2 hertz. A digital tuner, tuning fork, piano, or other standardized pitch producing device can be used to attain more exact pitches while tuning to E.
Skank Beat: A 2/4 drumbeat characterized by a repeating bass drum/cymbal hit followed by a snare drum/cymbal hit for an upbeat feel. The synchronized hits are repeated and are played at a fast tempo. There are also skank downbeats, skank triplets, skank upbeat double bass, and skank downbeat double bass. Extreme metal drummers tastefully incorporate these beats into a metal band’s brutal sound. The skank beat has also been referred to as a “thrash beat” and a “Slayer beat”.
