Quick Licks - Melodic Shredding Style Steve Vai
Quick Licks Melodic Shredding Style Steve Vai. Learn killer rock licks in the style of Steve Vai the grand master of fretboard pyrotechnics. Also includes a guitar jam track.
Andy James does a fantastic job of taking you painstakingly through each lick, breaking it down in a straight forward, no nonsense manner. This way of learning is like teaching someone to fish rather than giving them fish. After you have these licks ingrained in your head, you will be able to apply them to different grooves and styles because he is showing you how to take a scale (Lydian mode in this case) and make real music with it. Steve Vai signature licks books and although they are really cool also, this tops them because it's easier to understand and not just solos from songs which may have non diatonic notes/licks within them that can be confusing when trying to learn new patterns.
It is very much done in the style of "put your finger here, then here, strum this string and there ya go." Again this is not due to a limitation in Andy's playing skill but rather teaching style used in this video.
