Hello Instructors. I was wondering if anyone was up for a lesson in the style of Michael Romeo. It would be amazing if we could get a lesson in the style of him.

Here are some cool links:

I think what is important with power metal is the incredibly close synchronisation with the bass and keyboards. This could be captured in a Romeo lesson also.

MEGA CHOPS!

Muris or Pavel are best suited for this I would think..

In addition to Muris and Pavel, I think Marcus could be a good choose for this style as well. He is a Neoclassical God.

"Think of a guitar solo as a paragraph. You need a clear beginning, a middle, and an end. Look at musical phrases like sentences, and make sure you break them up using punctuation—or space. You pause naturally when conversing, right? If you don't, you'll bore the listener. The same thing will happen with your audience if your solo is one dimensional. You'll wear them out and lose their attention." —Tom Principato

I listened to all three videos. I found nothing about him that was unique. Not one single thing. Why a lesson? I can give you one here. Play fast AP runs, pull the wammy some, and flll in some tapping. Done.

Listen to Symphony X songs.

He is an incredible metal guitarist that can synchronise incredibly quick runs with a keyboard harmonising. That is pretty special. The guy does have a lot of stuff about him that isn't unique but if you listen to some Symphony X songs you'll find them to be one of the best prog/power metal bands out there.

Err, I would have to disagree even though I am not a HUGE fan of Romeo. He uses unique scales that you won't see in other guitarists for one, such as the Whole Tone, and Diminished. He uses a lot of extended chord arpeggios such as add9 and 11th chord, and sometimes creates them into tapping sequences. He modulates keys A LOT. He uses weird time signatures as well.

I've rarely seen him use the whammy.

Many people find his style unique and original, dont be so judgemental on the first listen, give Symphony X a listen, you might like them smile.gif . Just look at all the reasons Shellshock listed, are those not enough for a lesson?
