This song was my entry for Guitar Idol III. It involves some of my favourite rock techniques and licks, and it will improve your alternate picking, tapping, and string skipping, as well as develop stamina in your right hand, thanks to the prolonged wide stretches.
Here we have a solo study in the neo-classical rock/metal style. This style gained popularity from the groundbreaking release of Yngwie Malmsteen’s 1984 debut album Rising Force. The solo study looks at some of the techniques used in this demanding style including alternate picking, sweeping, bending and vibrato.
Here we have a free lick taken from the “Dragon’s Fury” solo study, based around the neo-classical rock/metal style influenced by Yngwie Malmsteen, Nicolo Paganini, J.S Bach, Jimi Hendrix, Uli Jon Roth and Ritchie Blackmore
