Metal Method Video Guitar Instruction has produced Michael Angelo Batio’s guitar lessons since 1991. His first lesson was Speed Kills. He currently has three Speed Kills programs (all revised) as well as the original 1991 version. He also has 3 Speed Lives programs which teach his songs.
Michael currently tours the world representing Dean Guitars and Metal Method instructional guitar lessons. He was voted as “The Fastest Guitarist of all time” by the readers of Guitar World magazine. For Michael, it’s not all about speed. His compositions are dramatic showcases for his neoclassical guitar style. There are few, great guitarists that are actually able to teach their technique. Michael is one of those few. His Speed Kills series have taught shred guitar technique since 1991. In 2014 this series was completely revised to benefit today’s players.
