This material is appropriate for advanced beginners and intermediate level players.
Metal Riffology originally began as a CD-ROM which taught 97 riffs and quickly became a favorite resource for metal guitarists worldwide. Later it was revised and produced as a two-DVD video package for Metal Method. It was well received by fans of the original program and found a new audience. When Metal Method videos changed to high-definition wide-screen format and Metal Riffology needed to be updated we saw this as an opportunity to revise and expand the program into this current edition.
If you have enjoyed either of the previous editions of Metal Riffology, you are sure to love this one!
The Metal Guitar Riffs 3 Volume Package includes printable tab, diagrams, and other lesson materials. It also comes with optional Guitar Pro 6 tab. To play along with lesson exercises at any speed you must purchase the optional Guitar Pro 6 software separately.
