Ever wanted someone to tell you exactly how to write a punk riff? How to create solos like Slash or Clapton? How to use music theory concepts to create metal, jazz, country, or whatever you want? Or maybe you just want to be a better rhythm or lead guitar player for your band? Guitar School is all about these things and much more.
