  • Welcome to the lesson on Hangar 18 by Megadeth!

    This track is a classic from Megadeth and it's a must in their live shows. It's taken from the album "Rust in peace" from 1990, Capitol records.


    Lead guitarists on this album were Marty Friedman and Dave Mustaine, both have a unique style very different from each other as you will see in this lesson in particular.

    You'll find a whole palette of techniques here, including:

    - Legato
    - Bends
    - Speed picking
    - Wide stretches
    - Palm muting
    - Sweeping
    - ...and some more

    Marty Friedman once said: "Be aware of every note because each note counts" and I have come to understand that after playing his stuff.

    Have fun with it and I'll see you on the next one!
