Guitar Techniques Magazine Review!
..yes.. you got it.. another post about THAT @#$&!! book!!!
Just went to my Barnes and Nobles this morning while doing some Christmas errands with the spousal unit.. for those that don't get the book/magazine in you area.. (and because I'm trying to win the "hey..look at me! award)
December 2007 Guitar Techniques:
page 13 (coooollll!!! don't get anymore RAWK than number 13!)
"There are countless rock shred tutorial books on the market, primed to cover the standard approaches to developing lightning speeds.
Thankfully, Kevin Dillard's Intelli-Shred is a little different in that he covers scale types and famous players alongside technique approaches like picking, legato and tapping. While not ground breaking, there is an attempt to balance shred development alongside melodic appeal and stylistic traits that make players like Vai, Satriani, Petrucci, Johnson and Lynch stand out from the crowd. With some tasty and muscular etudes to finish, intermediate plus rockers will find much to keep themselves busy here."
