Guitar Control.com, the company that specializes in teaching the six-string via online videos and deliverable DVDs, continues their commendable music crusade with this latest clip that concentrates on how to play guitar riffs. It features one of their new instructors named Cameron and this is actually his 2nd lesson so far with the company.
Though Cameron might be considered a “youngster,” he definitely has a tight grip on this instrument, which he of course demonstrates in his guitar lessons. As each teacher at Guitar Control typically excels in a certain sort of music, his specific style would lean towards rock. However, in 2013, rock covers a lot of ground and this tutorial technically shows how to play thrash metal, which is basically rock on a whole bunch of Red Bull.
Furthermore, although his playing is pretty fast and these particular guitar riffs are somewhat advanced, he explains stuff at a slow enough pace for most students watching this guitar lesson to follow and understand. In addition, guitar riff tabs are included which can come in quite handy, especially with these kinds of licks. Therefore, this clip is fit for anyone who wants to learn how to play thrash metal and/or rhythm guitar.
Initially, Cameron discusses what are at least in his opinion, the 5 different styles of picking, and this lesson is all about what is called the down picking technique. Then he proceeds to play a heavy riff from a popular song followed by another nice one that he actually made up himself, all while practicing down picking in both examples. Hence, not only can a couple of cool licks be learned, but this is also an excellent exercise for speed.
So in this day and age, whenever someone feels like learning the guitar, all they really have to do is go online in order to begin their musical journey, and Guitar Control may be a good place to start looking. With over 310 free video clips currently on You Tube and climbing, they’ve been receiving positive reviews, which may be due to their remarkable teachers and reliable advice about practically anything regarding the sweet six-string.
