  • Welcome to Your First Metal Solo lesson!

    The idea of this lesson is to concentrate over stuff being used in metal soloing but....at the level "affordable" for beginners. If you're a metal fan that just started to play the guitar - this lesson is for you. Metal soloing is quite advanced. Usually when beginners try to master a solo of their idol, they figure out how to play slower parts, but can't skip through the faster ones. This one has been highly rethinked to deliver ease of learning solo part while maintainig the metal character. All supported with powerfull backing track.
