  • Welcome to my new lesson in the style of Steel Panther!

    "Steel Panther is an American glam metal band from Los Angeles, California, mostly known for their profane and humorous lyrics as well as their exaggerated on-stage personae that parody the stereotypical "glam metal" lifestyle in the 1980s." - Wikipedia

    The music of Steel Panther encompasses all the 80's metal cliches that we love. Proper old school riffing that brings to mind Van Halen, Whitesnake, Motley Crue but with a modern production and a slightly heavier edge. Steel Panther are not just a novelty act, they can seriously play and write a great tune.

    The guitar in Steel Panther is handled by Russ Parrish AKA Satchel, who has taught at G.I.T. and worked with many notable musicians, recording with Rob Halford's band 'Fight'. He uses Kramer Pacer guitars into EVH 5150 III amps.

    This lesson will help improve:

    - Palm muting
    - Timing
    - Alternate picking
    - Ability to attract members of the opposite sex

    So, get out your spandex, grab that axe and party like tomorrow is the end of the world!
