  • Hi and welcome to the new lesson, in the style of Vito Bratta.

    Vito Bratta (born July 1, 1961, Staten Island, New York, United States) is the former guitarist and main songwriter for the rock band White Lion. Bratta co-founded White Lion with lead singer Mike Tramp in 1983 and played with the band until 1992 - Wikipedia

    Vito has a very melodic playing style that makes much use of finger tapping. A lot of people notice the similarities with Eddie Van Halen, who Vito acknowledges as a major influence, but Vito's guitar solos are very distinctive, despite the obvious similarities due to the use of tapping.

    All his solos are memorable and his lead playing has always been composed with the view of serving the song, even though this was during the shred era. Not only that, his tone is incredibly smooth. Studying his solos would be a good education for any player who wants to write melodic solos and put their technique to good use.

    Learning this lesson will work on:


    So, if you're "hungry" for more chops, get cracking on this one!
