Master Rhythm Guitar and Riffing in the styles of 80s icons!

Master Rock Rhythm Guitar with the Icons of a Decade

  • Want to improve your rhythm guitar in a fun way?

  • Want to learn the secrets and styles of the best riff-makers of the 80s?

1980s Rock Rhythm Guitar Mastery is my brand-new guide to playing better rhythm guitar in the styles of the most iconic players of the 80s.

From Motley Crue to Metallica, from RATT to Racer X, from Michael Schenker to Mr. Big, I’ll teach how to emulate the riffs that rocked MTV and dominated the pre-grunge landscape.

I’ve condensed a decade of rock into a logical method designed to help you play with perfect rhythm, better chops, and expanded rock vocabulary. Most importantly, you can use these approaches to write your own riffs & rhythms and improve your technique.

 1980s Rock Rhythm Guitar Mastery will have you playing real music in the styles of players you love:

  • The rockers: Motley Crue, Ratt, Dokken, Winger, Poison, Guns N Roses & more.
  • The guitar heroes: Randy Rhoads, Edward Van Halen, Yngwie Malmsteen, Paul Gilbert
  • UK and Europe: Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Europe, Michael Schenker, Helloween
  • Radio rockers: Whitesnake, Def Leppard, Journey, Heart, Bon Jovi.
  • The Thrashers: Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth
  • The Groovers: Aerosmith, Living Color, Mr Big, Extreme.

Not just riffs, but the concepts behind them.

I’ve broken down rhythm guitar into steps to tackle, one at a time:

  • Chord clusters within pentatonic frameworks
  • Chord progressions, chord fragments across the neck, and basic theory
  • Chugging, muting, galloping, thrashing, and shuffle rhythm chops
  • Using scales and modes to create riffs
  • Writing creative clean-chord guitar arrangements
  • Twin guitar parts using diatonic harmonies
  • How to groove and be creative in your riff writing

Each example is demonstrated in the included audio with drums, bass, and keyboard accompaniment, with space for you to play along after me.
