  • Hi Guys,

    Welcome to my lesson No. 69

    A new series called BASIC ROCK GUITAR that is made specially for beginners just because a lot of people asked for it.
    From time to time I'll will publish a new lesson of this series where you'll find some useful informations, riffs, rhythms and simple solo techniques so that you can immediately start to rock your guitar! :-D

    BASIC ROCK GUITAR(Mutingtechniques)

    In this lesson I demonstrate a lot of different muting/damping techniques that are very important to get a precise guitar sound.

    Have fun!
