Many of today’s rock stars learned to play guitar with the original version of this course. The following is from an interview of Myles Kennedy (Alter Bridge, Slash).

“You know, I started off taking lessons from a teacher and he’d teach me how to read music on guitar and play songs like Mary Had A Little Lamb and that lasted a few months. That just wasn’t going to work for me (laughs). I really wanted to play rock. I actually ordered out of the back of a magazine something called the Metal Method, which was by this guy named Doug Marks. That was how I learned to play. It was this audio cassette with little pamphlet series. It worked great.” ** Read More Reviews **
