  • Welcome to the Simple Metal solo lesson !

    This lesson is a specific one. It's called simple because it is in fact simple, comparing to how advanced metal solos can be. Metal has always been a kind of playing pool for guitar players. It was a unique genre where you could actually launch everything you can - your most advanced skills. Everything was warm wellcome - speed, fancy stuff, all available techniques. In my lesson you can try some of the this stuff being stripped-down to a form, that is available for intermediate players. I hope it would be a great introductions to modern metal soloing, that would help you to develope your skills even more.
