Metal Riffology – Legacy Version


“Metal Riffology” by Sarah Spisak began as a CD-ROM in 2000 and was massively popular on eBay.  It taught 97 killer metal riffs and examined the elements that made them so awesome.  After Sarah had been working at Metal Method for a while she released her first DVD package based on the original CD-ROM.
