This lesson is based on one of my instrumental songs, called "They Came from the North". The song contains a mixture of interesting and modern-sounding melodic lines and phrases and quite a few cool shredding parts.
Learn to play Overture 1928 by Dream Theater. It's an instrumental track full of riffs and solos and a great way to get acquainted with John Petrucci's playing. You'll learn how to use a number of advanced techniques in the context of a great song!
This song was my entry for Guitar Idol III. It involves some of my favourite rock techniques and licks, and it will improve your alternate picking, tapping, and string skipping, as well as develop stamina in your right hand, thanks to the prolonged wide stretches.
Welcome to my “Elysium” lesson, a great example of putting harmony and melody together. This is original composition from a great band Stratovarius which is arranged originally by Matias Kupianinen, new guitarist of the band.
This is a simplified version of my tune "Silver Gate". It is a real challenge to all intermediate guitarists, and great review for every advanced player. The key of this tune is accuracy in left hand slides and right hand sweep picking.
