Metal Edge: Metal Soloing Techniques Volume 1
Jan 11 2017
This DVD analyzes the techniques used in a melodic shred context; namely on two tracks off Andy’s album “In The Wake of Chaos” called ‘Devil’s Day’ and ‘Shine on Through’, and a previously unreleased single called ‘Underworld’.
Learn killer metal soloing techniques with Andy James. Take your shredding to the next level! This superb DVD will take your metal soloing to the next level, while increasing your musical knowledge with an arsenal of licks and techniques including string skipping, sweep picking, tapping techniques, alternate picking, metal rhythm techniques, and much more. Also includes three jam tracks.
Andy performs all three songs in their entirety, but the (extremely thorough) breakdown is only of the main solo of each song as well as the rhythm accompaniment of that section. However, the performance footage is of superb quality and up close, and if you already have the skill to play any of these tunes, you can easily figure out 90% of the tracks just by watching the performances.
Needless to say, the tracks are really amazing and Andy is truly a melodic shredder that all John Petrucci fans will relate to.
Like the other DVDs Andy James demonstrates and then breaks down the rhythm/solo sections step-by-step. Also, the Metal Edge series usually has Andy’s original material and his material is awesome. Andy James does an excellent job on explaining where, what and how to play the songs. Also, he will explain the best approach technique-wise. The songs are fun to learn and great to polish on the techniques in the realms of heavier type of metal within the intermediate and advance area.
You must have some level of technical playing ability before tackling some of this stuff. These videos are really not for individuals just learning how to play guitar. Prior knowledge of chords, scales, arpeggio’s. etc… would be recommended and you must know the location of every note on the neck.
