Tremolo guitar lessons for beginner and beyond.
In Easy Whammy Bar Guitar DVD, expert guitar instructor Mark John Sternal shows you how to use a whammy bar to the fullest in a 1-hour-39-minute exploration of this amazing guitar accessory. Some of the coolest sound effects in guitar history come from using a whammy bar. Many guitars come equipped, but guitar players often avoid using them, or are very limited in what they can do with their trem.
Section 1, Open String Techniques includes lessons on proper muting techniques, thunderous open string dives and more.
Continuing with an EASY approach, the tutorials in Section 2 introduces Harmonics, giving you screaming sound effects which can be applied to vibrato, climbs and dives.
Section 3 introduces Fretted Whammy Bar Techniques—From simple 1 note applications, to use of scales and chords—hammer ons and pull offs, playing in key, slides, artificial harmonics, bend techniques, sirens, hot rod/motorcycle sound effects and much more.
