This month's spotlight title is Rusty Cooley's "Fretboard Autopsy."
Called the "leading light of the post-Malmsteen shred-volution" by Guitar Player magazine, Rusty Cooley is one of the world's most technically advanced shredders.
In this curriculum for Rock House, Rusty unveils the secret patterns, shapes and techniques that have propelled him to guitar greatness. Learn 4, 5, 6 and 7 root modes, expanded patterns spanning the neck, 3 octave modes, reverse linear patterns and modal sequences. He'll show you how to create modal chord progressions for each of the 7 modes that you can shred your own leads over. And, in addition, to lessons for six string guitarists, he has also included bonus lessons for seven string guitars as well.
On the DVDs, Rusty teaches and illustrates each playing example through easy-to-follow close-up views of each hand. In conjunction, he slowly breaks down each lesson so you can easily follow along to get the hand positions correct. The included videos will help you hear how the examples are supposed to sound and, most importantly, you can see how Rusty applies them in a musical context.
Jam-packed with the most complete advanced collection of arpeggios ever, this is a must have for all guitarists.
Additionally, as with each Rock House product, the purchase of Fretboard Autopsy includes a free lifetime membership to Rock House's online lesson support system where you can enhance your learning experience by downloading backing tracks and linking with instructors. You'll also be able to connect with a community of musicians around the world learning to play using The Rock House Method.
