Lick Library continues to offer the world's best guitar tuition with the release of "Quick Licks Shred Metal in the Style of Synyster Gates", award-wining lead guitarist with AVENGED SEVENFOLD. This guitar tuition DVD is presented by Andy James, a leading light in the world of metal guitar.

Synyster Gates, or simply Syn, joined AVENGED SEVENFOLD at the age of eighteen following a call from their legendary drummer The Rev. Last November Guitar World included him as one of the hot shots on their list of 30 coolest guitarists. He is known for his riffs which are clean, catchy and one of a kind. He has been described as shredding like a beast, delivering his solos with blistering speed, yet still letting you hear every note he plays. He is a real professional when it comes to dive-bombs, sweep picking and is an inspiration for all guitarists wanting to learn killer licks!

Andy James has for some time been widely regarded as one of the U.K.'s rising stars in the realms of shred and metal guitar. Andy has specialized in teaching lead techniques for heavy rock and metal and is well placed to lead you through the intricacies of shredding in the style of Syn.

"Quick Licks Shred Metal In The Style Of Synyster Gates" (RRP £19.99) is presented in an easy to follow guitar lesson where each lick is broken down into small pieces, and the DVD shows at all times what Andy is doing with both hands on the guitar, making it very simple to copy and pick up. This guitar lesson looks at techniques such as sweep picking, alternate picking, and string skipping. It also looks at how well Syn uses arpeggios, chord progressions and chromaticisms, bringing together a range of techniques for intermediate level and above guitar players. The DVD includes a metal guitar jam track where you can play along and practice the licks you've learned to help you develop your own solos.
