  • Hi and welcome to my latest lesson. This time, I've created a lead extravaganza for beginner level guitarists. The idea is that you get to enjoy playing in the styles of famous bands but without needing to tackle difficult techniques.

    I've referenced the riffs and solos of famous artists and simplified them to create something both old and new.

    Some of the lead phrases as so simple they could be played with one finger. As the track progresses, some unison string bends are introduced alongside some hammer-ons, pull-offs and even some tapping.

    The roster of bands we're emulating is as follows:

    Kaiser Chiefs
    Blink 182
    Sum 41
    White Stripes
    The Shadows
    Rolling Stones
    Black Sabbath
    AC / DC
    Iron Maiden
    Guns n Roses

    As you can see, the journey takes you through the sounds of Indie, Pop Punk, Hard Rock, Garage Rock, Classic Rock, Beat Music, Heavy Metal, Nu Metal and Djent (Modern Progressive Metal)
