Are you a rock or metal guitarist who wants to expand your technique vocabulary? Better yet, do you want to learn from a songwriter and composer who has played with the likes of Lita Ford, Rob Halford, David Lee Roth, Meat Loaf, Marilyn Manson, and Rob Zombie? If so, this collection of lessons by shredder extraordinaire John 5 is for you! Lesson topics include: arpeggio licks, flamenco fingerpicking, string skipping, speed picking, country sounds, tapping, infusing techniques, hybrid picking, exotic and outside sounds, and more!
