I'd love to see a lesson in the style of vivian campbell. I'm particularly interested in his lead work for DIO back in the day. Thanks smile.gif

Yea I`m a huge Viv Campbell fan, especially the Dio days, on the side I have been working on a "In the style of Vivian Campbell" lesson for the Student Instructor boards, but I`d love to see an Instructor do one as they will do it a lot more justice than myself! smile.gif

Dio Rocks, even now with the brilliant Doug Aldrich playing for him!! Its a shame that Dio and Vivian parted ways and now do nothing but slag each other off, I thought Vivian was a great fit for the band. I also loved his work with Hear'N Aid and S.T.A.R.S. the charity record with a whole heap of great artists and guitarists, if no-one has heard of it before here is one of the songs:

Theres also a great video showing the guitarists who played on it, and showing some of the solo's that didnt make it onto the final cut, you can see it here:

I love the part when Don Dokken comes in hehe!! And the Malmsteen part of the solo is INSANE with a capital INSANE! But back on-topic It would be great to have a Vivian Campbell lesson, especially if it worked over something similar to the Rainbow In The Dark solo, I love that solo!!
