  • April 25, 2004 Awesome.

    Don't underestimate this book if you're a beginner. At first, I thought the Primer was too 'easy', so i got Metal Lead Guitar Vol. 1, but that was too advanced fer me, so finally, after many months, i got the primer. This book isn't actually for complete...

    beginners, but for players new to Lead Guitar, as Troy states himself. The whole thing is a breakdown of the first 2 chapters of Vol. 1, but it also teaches things that Vol. 1 doesn't teach. It is WAY more helpful than Vol. 1 if you don't know the basic articulations. [Bends, vibrato, hammer-ons, and pull-offs].

    me how to do both techniques in just one day...Now I"am playing the lead to "Panama" (Van Halen) note-for-note.Get this book (Or any of Troy's books) You will NOT be disappointed! I guarantee it!!!

  • June 17, 2003 Great "Primer" for Beginners

    When I began using this book, I could hardly play a scale without making a mistake. While I am not at the proficiency I hope to one day be at, this book has been an Excellent Intro to the basics of playing metal lead. I recommend using this in conjunction...

    with Metal Rhythm Guitar Vol. 1 by Troy Stetina. I have used both and have progressed to Metal Rhythm Guitar Vol. 2 and Metal Lead Guitar Vol. 1. These books teach the basics and fundamentals behind 80's and 90's style hard rock and metal.
