As a founding member and guitarist of progressive rock group Scale the Summit, Chris Letchford has earned a reputation as one of the genre's most technically fluent and unique players, seamlessly blending such diverse styles as jazz, instrumental rock and metal.
Equally adept on six-, seven-, or even eight-string Guitar, Latchford focuses on the six-string variety in Progressive Rock Guitar Licks, but includes a bonus section for the seven-string player.
The 65 licks that comprise Progressive Rock Guitar Licks are demonstrated on the accompanying video and notated in both standard notation and tab. The licks are grouped according to the scales from which they are derived (A major, D harmonic minor, E Lydian, etc.) and include backing tracks, so you can immediately practice the licks with a full band.
Techniques covered include: melodic and syncopated phrasing; slides, hammer-ons, and pull-offs; right- and left-hand tapping; alternate and sweep picking; string skipping; string bending; palm muting; arpeggios; vibrato; and more. The price of this book includes access to video and audio tracks online, for download or streaming, using the unique code inside the book.
