Break free from the shackles of single-note lead melodies. Grab your axe and join Dream Theater’s John Petrucci as he opens up new ways of utilizing open-string playing. In this video, he’ll walk you through easy-to-implement techniques—such as pedal tones, triplets, hammers, slides, and aggressive pick attacks—that’ll help you enhance your playing. Whether you’re new to shredding or you’re a pro picker, it never hurts to take the lead from one of Heavy Metal’s most revered guitarists. Tune up, tune in, and get ready to rock.
