Probably one of my all time favorite solos - very well done Daniel!
wow, well done! sounds really great!
AWESOME! Very nice Daniel
One of the best solos from Marty, and great cover of it Daniel, sounds really cool.
YYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! tHANKS dANIEL .. this is my FAV SOLO of all time !!
Best solo ever, and great interpretion. I have spent so much time trying to figure out that last part of the solo, and now I get it right here. Thank you
Just saw this and it put a huge smile on my face! Starting to learn right now!
Couldn't possibly be any better solo to start the year with!!! There's no words to describe Martys playing... ! Great Daniel, thanks! Now I can finally learn that ending properly
very nice daniel!, i miss the 1+ min solos on music
Happy New Year, Daniel ! Extremely cool solo by Mr Friedman, and very well played and explained
You rock man =D
Thanks very much for the comments guys, I'm very glad that you liked it and I hope you get the most out of it!
Very technical and tasty solo. Amazing work!
dude you need to slow down the parts more so we can see what your playing, I had to pause and rewind the vid like a million times and there is no tab below it either to help out. A better view of the picking hand would be nice but not essential other than that its an awesome solo probably in my top five of all time and you nailed it!
great lesson,perfect solo part !
Nice!!! I'll give it a go soon.
Wow Daniel, that was just awesome!
killer job man. I watched 10 times
Awesome, Daniel. I enjoy watching and hearing you play.
You forgot to show that little bending lick/phrase that would have been between video 9 and 10
Are you allowed to send/post the backings for this solo?
Cool, awesome solo cover man!!
Fantastic lesson, one of the best solos ever.
The awesomeness level of this is over 9000! probably one of the greatest solos i have heard
Awesome solo!!! Thanks for sharing.
Killer lesson! Marty rules
Awesome lesson! I think a whole-song lesson would be great for Tornado of Souls as well. The opening is probably one of the greatest rhythm licks of all time.
Very nice job with this fantastic solo !Loved it!
Awesome Marty phrasing and great playing, Daniel!
Everyone please say
HAIL MARTY FRIEDMAN
Awesome performance Daniel!! I had missed this one!! Well done!
Hi daniel at part 7 of the solo im finding it really hard to get the speed up on the diminished arpeggio. Have you got any tips to improve speed here as im finding it very difficult to be able to play it clear and fast enough. Thanks!
Hi, i am using the sweep picking technique but am finding it hard to get it up to the songs speed, if you have any exercises for getting faster and more accurate sweeps that would be greats thanks!
Mine favourite and arguably one of the best solos in metal ever. Very nice and clean sounding!
Wow Daniel, you are an amazing player to be able to pull off this solo so perfectly. My personal guitar goal in life is to be able to play this and I am working at it for 1 year now and still have a long ways to go before I can play it.
Why is the timing of the first few notes so hard for me to get? Walk up on the G string..3rd fret bend and walking up 4th, 6th, 7th, 9th and 10 fret. I find it hard to get this timing. Does anyone have any suggestions?
Redpill, Marty purposely plays very off the bet to make it virtually impossible to "count" your way through that section.
You might want to try humming that melody, as that is how Marty often approaches writing his solos.
Not only will you learn an epic melody, but once you nail the timing you will have gained a much more relaxed and loose approach to playing cool lines!
This is a lesson on one of my favorite solos I've ever heard. The solo for "Tornado of souls" by Marty Friedman with the band Megadeth. This song is part of the album "Rust in peace" of 1990.
This solo combines many different techniques like:
What's amazing to me in this solo is the overall melodic direction. Marty is able to achieve using unorthodox playing and not really doing what's expected. I hope you enjoy this lesson, learn it and be able to play it! If you do, record yourself and let us see you! If you have any difficulty with any part, let me know and I'll help you, Rock it! Daniel
