Break out of the pentatonic box and master the fretboard.

In order to be an effective and creative lead guitarist you must have a strong understanding of the relationship between the licks you are playing and the chords you are playing over. Lead Guitar DNA will show you a clear approach to understanding this relationship. This program explains the need to understand two-string arpeggios to master lead guitar. Lead Guitar DNA 2 extends this program with Phrygian two-string arpeggios.

Don’t forget your rhythm chops!

Monster Power Chords includes jam-a-long drum loops, and full blown backing tracks. The drum loops are designed to keep the beat for practicing ANY of the basic exercises in this program.
