    Along this lesson we I'll cover the most used techniques, progressions, scales, tonalities and arranging concepts used by these guitarists. You'll find info theory and technique and lots of links to lessons covering each guitarist and technique deeper. This lesson will definitely expand your guitar vocabulary as guitarist and improviser. Enjoy it!

    Tuning: Standard 440.

    Tempo: Different tempos starts at

    Sound:
    I've used my custom Lojo Rosa T guitar and if you check the main video you'll notice that I change pick ups and also switch from single coil to humbucker depending on each guitarists to emulate their guitar models. When covering a PRS or Gibson player I start with humbuckers, however when covering Stratocaster players I switch to single coil.

    Regarding amps, I've used emulators and mostly Poulin plug ins to create tones that are close to each guitarist. The most used cabinet is Hybrit (for Marshall sounds) and Lextac (for Fender tones). I'll go deeper about amp settings in the slow video parts.

    Ok friends, let's get into the style of the greatest guitarists!
