My first Book is out:The Electric Guitar Technique Workout

Hello everyone!!

I’m very glad to announce that the first book is out!!!!:-)

The Electric Guitar Technique Workout is all about technique in the style of John Petrucci, Steve Vai, Vinnie Moore, Joe Satriani, Yngwie Malmsteen, Andy James, Frank Gambale, Randy Roads and Brett Garsed. Inside you will find exercises and sequences regarding Alternate Picking (35 Alternate picking sequences), Sweep Picking (21 Sweep patters) and Legato (15 Legato patterns). At the end of the book you will find 26 killer Licks that use Alternate, Sweep, Legato, Tapping and Hybrid picking in order to help you grasp these techniques and see how they can take flesh and blood through Licks. In the end of each chapter you will find tips to help you improve your’ studying.

Apart from these, in the Appendix I’ve provided fingerings and vertical connections for modes and scales so that you will be able to apply all the patterns you’ll learn throughout the book and make your own fantastic licks!!All the above plus high resolution close up photos of my hands, are included in a 64 page high definition PDF waiting for you to download. For the book lovers, a hard copy version of the book is also available for purchase.

…But….Not only that!! All the material covered in the book is also available in Guitar Pro format for the Guitar Pro fanatics!!There’s no reason to wait….get your copy here:
