Welcome to my latest lesson in the style of George Lynch. George became known in the early and mid 80's for being the lead guitarist for the band Dokken before forming his own band, Lynch Mob and releasing their first record in 1989.
George has a very distinct style which is quite hard to emulate in my opinion because his playing is very 'off the wall' and spontaneous. One thing that is a definite characteristic of George's playing is the use of the flattened 5th, also known as the diminished 5th. He uses it in chord progressions as well as lead playing.
His use of pick tapping and awesome pinch harmonics are also mandatory learning aspects of his style.
The riffing part of the lesson is in the key of A Minor and the solo section is in E Minor.
This lesson will work on:
- Tapping (with finger and pick)
- Rhythm guitar playing
I loved making this lesson as it was a good excuse to get into the guitar vibe of Mr Lynch. He's got a lot of inspiring phrasing ideas so I recommend you check out the Dokken albums and songs like 'Mr Scary', the entire live album 'Beast from the East' and both Lynch Mob albums.
