    Total Rock Guitar's first song is a beginner song containing easy powerchords, but after that, the songs get harder and harder up to an advanced level, with the song: Desolation Jam, which contains difficult sextuplets. It covers lead and rhythm rock guitar styles. There is a short introduction to...

    all the techniques, then a song incorporating all the techniques. The introduction is only an introduction to explain what's going on, but you really have to practice the song to get the techniques down. If you want a more thorough approach to all these techniques, use Total Rock Guitar in conjunction with Metal Rhythm 1, Metal Lead Primer, and maybe even the Rock Videos and Pocket Guides.
