No Boundaries - Speed Kills
http://www.metalmethod.com - This is from the instructional DVD "Speed Kills" Advanced Shred Techniques by Michael Angelo Batio. This song is taught note-for-note on the original Speed Lives DVD: http://www.metalmethod.com/lead-guitar-lesson-speed-lives-2.htm Here are a few answers to common questions. Yep, his guitar has 29 frets. The guitar's name is "The Rocket" and was designed especially for Michael. The dive bomb effect at the end was done using an effect pedal not his whammy bar. This was all performed in a single take. There are no effects or video tricks to speed up this video. Yes ladies and gentlemen, he really is that good.

Hawk at the Roxy - 1985 - No One to Love
http://www.metalmethod.com - November 15, 1985 - a time when men with giant hair roamed the earth. Their addiction to hairspray is often sighted as the primary reason for the destruction of the earth's ozone layer. Hawk was lead guitarist Doug Marks (Metal Method guitar instructor), bassist Lonnie Miller (King Kobra, Bullet Boys), Scott Travis on drums (Judas Priest, Fight, Racer X), and Charlie Morrill. This performance is from Hawk's Roxy show in Hollywood, California. This combination of musicians never recorded an album. The Hawk album was released the following year and featured only Doug Marks from this lineup with vocalist David Fefolt (Masi), and drummer Matt Sorum.

Why your guitar sounds out of tune
Have you ever tuned your guitar using an electric tuner, a digital tuner, only to find it still sounds out of tune? You strum a chord one string at a time and the chord sound dissonant… out of tune. Or you go up to the twelfth fret to play a lead and it sounds so out that you decide to check your tuning. Then, you pull out the digital tuner and it shows that you’re in perfect tune. This is one of the most frustrating things about playing guitar. I will explain what you’ve been missing. BTW I created this video today in response to a YouTube comment I read this morning. Thanks for your comments, they help!

Guitar Motivation: The Challenge of Change
Video Script: A novice student begins to make progress once they begin to believe that they are a guitarist. An experienced player improves when they envision and accept that they can perform at a higher level. There was a day when even Eddie Van Halen began to believe he had the potential to reinvent rock guitar. His change in self-belief allowed this to happen. To accomplish something the first step is to believe that it’s possible. Then you must embrace the necessary change to make it happen. There are many excellent guitar programs, including my own, but none are effective unless the student is willing to change. And change is difficult but possible. There’s an enormous amount of resistance to transformation. Sure, you can work on a new program for a few days but your old way of doing things tends to creep back in to squeeze out your new routine. You’re not going to make the change that you want without fighting the tendency to return to what was normal. Our lives are often defined by inertia. Inertia is the resistance of an object to a change in motion. This resistance to change continues unless the object meets………. an external force. Hi, I’m Doug Marks, Metal Method guitar instructor, and your friendly external force. Why is transformation so difficult? I’ll explain. After a recent medical exam, I was amazed by my blood test results. Now I don’t know about you, but I never think about keeping my mean corpuscular hemoglobin between a value of 26 and 33 which, of course, is normal. But there it was at 31.7. This was just one of 24 blood test values that my mind and body regulate without any help from me. We are a miracle. Next time you tell yourself that you can’t improve, that you don’t have talent, that this program isn’t working…. simply accept these thoughts as the way your mind regulates your life to maintain normalcy, just like your blood chemistry. As you attempt transformation you will often fail. You might get up early to practice only to find yourself sleeping in a week later. You just drifted back to normal. Try to create changes that are less disruptive. Also, figure out a way to make change pleasurable. What is it that you enjoy most about playing guitar? Be sure THAT ENJOYMENT is part of your daily practice routine. Although change is difficult it’s not impossible. You’ll find as you improve that improvement is a powerful motivator. It’s like when I clean the garage. It’s not much fun, but after finishing I might make a half dozen trips back to check out my beautiful work. And that helps motivate me to clean the garage next time that it’s a total disaster. If change wasn’t so difficult, everyone would do it and it wouldn’t be special. As you transform, it’s your extra effort that will make the difference. It’s the change that makes ordinary extraordinary. As you make this transformation, I will be here to help you out. Doug Marks, your external force. Change is possible. You’ll see.

24 Jazz Progressions by Michael Angelo Batio
http://metalmethod.com/jazz-progressions-michael-angelo-batio - Michael Angelo Batio’s guitar playing journey began with childhood jazz guitar lessons. This program explores the origin of this musical influence. Now you’ll have access to the same knowledge that has been the foundation of his music. These progressions are great exercises for two reasons. First, they are extremely hard to master and will give your fretboard hand a great workout. Second, the Jazz Progressions will impact your own musical expression and expand your harmonic vocabulary. Patience is the key to mastering this program. Set a goal of learning a single progression each week. You may never master all twenty-four so consider this; even if you only master one progression you can use it as a warmup next time you’re playing with friends. We guarantee that they’ll be blown away. The fact that you only know one progression will be our secret! We strongly recommend that you print the booklet before attempting the progressions. You will find it invaluable as you can see the chord charts and familiarize yourself with the advanced, sonic textures and concepts of Jazz. We also include Michael’s hand written original booklet. This program teaches 24 classic jazz progressions. It is a revision of his 25 Jazz Progressions lesson first created in 1997 and later revised by Sarah Spisak for Metal Method. The course includes Guitar Pro files and a PDF tab booklet. The program is available on either DVD or Digital Download format. Download this today and begin learning 24 Jazz Progressions tonight. Tomorrow you’ll be a better guitarist.
