This course is designed to focus your practice towards realistic goals achievable in six weeks (one week, one DVD). Each week provides you with techniques, concepts and licks to help you play and understand metal soloing at a manageable pace. Three licks in the style of a featured artist are taught each week to help you towards playing in real musical situations and develop an ear for the differences between players.
The JamPlay Artist Series features lessons taught by progressive guitarists from all styles of music. These lessons focus on each artist's particular style, and are taught by either the artist himself(found under "Artists"), or a qualified instructor familiar with that artist's playing style ("In The Style Of").
Andy James needs little introduction as one of the most popular LickLibrary tutors, respected the world over for his unbelievable technical skills and teaching material. As a player Andy has released a string of solo albums, the last being 2012's "Andy James" on Transcend Music which was met with huge critical acclaim. Andy is also the guitarist for EMI signed act, "Sacred Mother Tongue" who are set to take over the world of metal in the near future. If there was ever a more focused, uncompromising metal guitarist than Andy James, we'd sure love to see him.
This track actually started off as a collaboration between myself and Jeff Loomis, but as schedules didn't allow I needed a new track to perform on EMG TV at the beginning of 2014. So that is the very first version of it. After sitting with the track a while I started to cement a lot more of how I wanted the track to sound. I booked into the studio with Scott Atkins and recorded the finished version you will hear on this downloadable version.
