Recording artist, stunt guitarist and top educator Chris Buono presents his handpicked collection of 50 Metal Licks You MUST Know. Buono's handpicked range of phrases, riffs, concepts and techniques takes you across a wide variety of contemporary and classic metal styles to help guide your development of the tools, techniques and vocabulary that you'll need to unleash powerful solos and take your metal chops to the next level.

From the rumbling of low E-string chugs to the study of military grade precise jackhammer downstrokes to screaming bends enriched with colossal vibrato-itís all here! Topics under fire are the cornerstone harmonic device-the power chord as well as alternate harmonic devices such as inverted 5ths (4ths), the b5ths and upper string power chords; various palm muting approaches, the must know galloping 16ths rhythm, metal-approved chord arpeggiation picking patterns, dropped-D tuning, advanced riffing rhythms, exotic tonalities, various types of string bending, creative use of natural harmonics, pinch harmonics, legato moves, picking techniques, tapping, harmonic minor ideas and even more. Buono guides you across the styles of Iommi, Blackmore, Hetfield, Mustaine, Dimebag, Skolnick, Lynch, Rhoads, Wylde, Cantrell and Malmsteen to the new breed bands like In Flames, System of a Down, Disturbed, Deftones, Trivium, Dragonforce, Avenged Sevenfold, Children of Bodom and Shadows Fall.

Turn those gain knobs all the way to the right and get ready to throw up those devil horns because it's time to throw down with 50 Metal Licks You MUST Know ñ you too will burn like the masters!
