About the Author

Kevin M. Buck began violin lessons at age six and guitar lessons at age eleven. In high school, Buck s original heavy metal band enjoyed a faithful following throughout the Chicagoland area, playing at such legendary clubs as The Thirsty Whale, The Riviera, The House of Blues, and The Vic Theater. Buck has shared the stage with acclaimed artists such as Megadeth, Rob Zombie, Uli Jon Roth (Scorpions), Joe Lynn Turner (Deep Purple, Rainbow, Yngwie Malmsteen), Disturbed, and many others including Roger Daltry (The Who), who remarked that Kevin M. Buck is one of the greatest guitarists ever. Leslie West of Mountain said, This kid has a f^cking encyclopedia worth of sh!t in his mind. Steve Vai (Frank Zappa, David Lee Roth, Whitesnake, Alcatrazz) stated, I listened to a handful of your sound clips and was impressed with your technique on the instrument. Sounds like you have great control. Jam on. Buck won the 2003 Guitar Idol Competition sponsored by 97.9 WLUP-FM in Chicago. He was also in the August 2004 issue of Guitar World Magazine. Kevin M. Buck s first album, Initiation was released on October 11, 2003. Initiation is an instrumental rock album and displays Buck s creative and virtuosic guitar playing. Jason Becker (Cacophony, David Lee Roth) commented on Initiation saying, I like the CD a lot. You re the man. Buck has organized two benefit concerts for Jason Becker to help find a cure for Lou Gehrig s disease. In 2006, Uli Jon Roth awarded Buck a scholarship to attend Sky Academy in Los Angeles. Buck played with and learned from Roth, who thinks Buck s playing is very good, very very good. . . some very inventive and creative stuff. Buck enjoys teaching at guitar clinics. Buck also gives private guitar lessons as well. Buck teaches all styles of music, and has been doing so for over fifteen years. Euphoric Darkness was released October 11, 2007. Euphoric Darkness is a collection of heavy metal songs with unique and memorable vocals, riffs, and solos. This album features Buck s songwriting and vocal abilities, along with his insane guitar talent. Buck has authored a book about guitar playing and music theory titled Guitar in Theory and Practice. Buck s latest album, Musick for the New Aeon, was released on April 20th 2011 and features Atma Anur on drums and Ferdy Doernburg on keyboards. Buck s future plans include more recording and touring, and an instructional DVD.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It's good, not outstanding or groundbreaking, but it does offer some new insights into the world of music theory as applied to our instrument, the Guitar. As I said, although there's not much new information being given in this book, there are a few nuggets that might kickstart the light bulb into "aha!" mode. Give it a shot, if you're in for something a little different.
