  • Welcome to the 80's Made Easy lesson!

    80's were a kind of Golden Age for guitar soloing. Everything was allowed - the more the better. Solos from that period were full of different techniques, fancy tricks, whammy bar and speed runs. No matter if your target is to be a shredder or you prefer a kind of "grown up" playing more..., going through some 80's stuff will definitely help bring your technique to the point where you will be able to play whatever your mind brings. Let this lesson be your introduction to this awesome playing period :)
