The Yng Way

The Yng Way: Speed Strategies and Studies is a system that will equip with you the tools and knowledge to create blazing guitar lines and sequences using the speed picking system pioneered by guitar legend Yngwie Malmsteen. Chris shares insights and revelations accumulated over decades of guitar playing and teaching, and it’s all available for you to download right now….

Sweep Picking Systems

Sweep Picking can be a powerful technique to execute rapid and smooth arpeggios in your solos. This course will guide you through the 4 Technical Essentials of good sweeping, provide you with the methods to build 2-string triads into 6 strings and beyond, and equip you with the fretboard mapping to play arpeggios anywhere on the neck, with troubleshooting sections at the end of each main chapter.

Picking Systems for Pentatonic

Picking Systems and Sequences (The Penta Power Series) takes you beyond Blues cliches (we need those too!) to introduce you to three different systems for creating fiery Pentatonic picking lines. Dubbing the three systems “Alteve”, “Eco”, and “Compound”, Brooks demonstrates how picking approaches, fretboard “units” and strategised thinking can result in a whole new arsenal of lines for your rock, blues, metal and fusion pentatonic bag.

E Minor Shred Solo

Featured in Jared Dines new 15 Amazing Guitar Solos on YouTube, Chris Brooks breaks down his furious E Minor solo in this new bite-size lesson pack.

Dividing the solo up into five parts, each section is taught with a focus on how the ideas were played, and little things to keep an ear out for when you play them yourself. Every pick stroke is included to help you duplicate Chris’ execution.
