Mark John Sternal – Phrase By Phrase Guitar Method: Classic Van Halen
Jan 06 2017
The Phrase By Phrase Guitar Method explores some of the greatest guitarists of all time, breaking their complex styles into simple, recognizable phrases. Thorough, easy-to-understand descriptions teach proper finger placement and technique, followed by half-speed practice tempos and combined sections that are played at full speed.
In Phrase By Phrase Classic Van Halen, we dissect Eddie Van Halen’s inventive guitar style which redefined how rock guitar was played. If you’re interested in learning to tear up the fretboard, this is the right video for you! Learn all of the Leads, Rhythms and Fills to popular songs from the albums Van Halen, Van Halen II, Women and Children First, Fair Warning and 1984! A lot of free guitar backing tracks can be downloaded on this site.
This video is what it says it is a breakdown of the songs listed by Van Halen during the best period of the band. It starts by showing you the settings (close enough) to what Eddie used on said song such as distortion, phase, tone, volume, mid’s, etc…, then goes in to braking the song down into “phrases” or riffs if you will played super slow then at half speed. Most of the info could be obtained off youtube or some other fan site, the tabs could be bought and dissected personally – but to have it all in one place already done for you on a whopping 5hr dvd for 25 dollars isn’t too bad really. It was worth the money for the time gained, Mark John Sternal (dude has serious hair not to be f’ed with) does a good job coping Eddie’s tone just wish the tab’s had been included. I mean their showed on screen in clear to read notation I just like hard copies (old fashioned).
