exposes you to a wide array of technical and
melodic approaches that I used in composing and
performing the music for
meaning that while some of the melodies might
not seem too difficult, some are extremely
difficult to execute properly.
Some of the
techniques presented include, advanced hammer-ons,
alternate picking, right hand tapping, string
muffling, sweep picking and string-selective
picking for playing riffs. Your ultimate goal is
be able to use these techniques effortlessly in
your playing style.

that I thought were the most technically
challenging as well as fun and melodic to play.
Many of these techniques are derivatives from more

I highly recommend you get a metronome or
drum machine if you don't have one already.
