George Lynch – Artist Series
Jul 21 2014
George Lynch stormed onto the 1980s shred guitar scene with his band, Dokken. Along with contemporaries like Edward Van Halen and Randy Rhoads, George set the standard for virtuoso guitar playing. After Dokken, George went on to front his own band, Lynch Mob, and also recorded as a solo artist.
This DVD provides true insight into George Lynch’s playing and highlights the many facets of his unique guitar style. George demonstrates vibrato techniques, tapping, string skipping, whammy bar effects, and many of his favorite licks; he also teaches excerpts from some of his famous recorded solos. The DVD features candid moments of George in a Los Angeles recording studio creating solo overdubs for the Lynch Mob debut album, Wicked Sensation, and footage of George playing his great solo from “Street Fightin’ Man.”
This DVD is full of great licks, and George has enough foresight to realize that not everyone is as quick as him, so he slows it down for the beginner, gives you the meat and potatoes of what makes the lick work without bombarding you with theory, and then shows you how fast playing should be: No compromises, a WHOLE lot of attitude, and immediate. Shredding with a purpose.
George Lynch is wicked, filthy, lightning fast, and brilliant on the guitar. Mozart was born to write music, Tom Hanks was born to act, and George Lynch was born to shred. His solos are very complex and he stays “busy” through every song. Guitar players like this only come around once. This DVD really nails his technique.
