U.K.'s Total Guitar magazine has created Play Guitar Like Dimebag Darrell, a brand-new app for iPad designed to help players looking for an introduction to late PANTERA guitarist "Dimebag" Darrell Abbott's style and approach. The app teaches users to play in the style of Dimebag with a combination of video lessons, tab and backing tracks covering the most important rhythm and lead techniques. You also get recommended amp and pedal settings for nailing Dime's punishing tone, plus a buyer's guide full of recommended gear for all budgets. As a bonus, classic album reviews and biographical information tell the story behind the man and the music.
