Strengthen your shredding abilities under a true hard rocker's tutelage.
In the Hal Leonard Speed Picking Featuring Rowan Robertson DVD, Dio guitarist Robertson captures the essence of solid lead guitar with a fresh and modern approach. Rowan covers exercises that build speed and coordinate your left and right hands. He demonstrates burning licks with unbelievable speed, but slows them down and explains each part. The accompanying booklet shows each example in notation and tablature.
At the tender age of 16, English-born Rowan Robertson submitted his demo tape to Ronnie James Dio to audition for lead guitarist for the heavy metal rock group Dio. From the very first note, it proved to be the ultimate sound Ronnie was looking for. Rowan toured and recorded with the American band until Dio disbanded in 1991, when its leader rejoined Black Sabbath. Shortly thereafter, as an experienced hard rock guitarist, Rowan recorded this guitar instructional video, now transformed into a DVD.
