Format: Paperback
This is a good book to learn a lot of Pantera's (they since have split up) riffs. Although, it gives you a glimpse of some of the techniques he uses during his soloing, you still have listen to Dimebag play them on the records to get the full enjoyment of his musical talents. He is without a doubt, a great guitarist and this book will show some of his more innovative ideas. This book really concentrates on the riff, hence, the title. However, it comes with a CD that is much slower and easier to follow than trying to play with your favorite Pantera album.

I first met "Diamond" Darrell in 1984 when he was only 17, and giving guitar lessons at Mansfield Music. I'd finally decided I really wanted to PLAY guitar, and not just bang on it. They tried several teachers, classical, and a country teacher. It just didn't work out, so the owner told me he had one more teacher, a kid with his own band. In walked a skinny kid with the biggest electric frizz hairdo I'd ever seen, Darrell. Each week, he'd take my list of 10 songs I wanted to learn, and if he knew them, would show me how to play them. If he didn't know them, he'd take the list home, and next week, he'd have all of them down pat. I learned more in that 18 months than in the previous 35 yrs! Ten yrs later, I went to a guitar show in Dallas, and was waiting outside the Dean showcase when I heard a voice call, "Hey, Everett! How're you doin'!". It was Darrell, there to put on a demo for Dean. Needless to say, there were some wide eyes around me after that! Darrell dropped everything to talk to me for about 10 minutes. That's the kind of guy he was. We lost a goodern, that's for sure. R.I.P. Darrell...

First off, the basis for this book was the 48 installments that Dimebag Darrell had written for Guitar World. So to say that i would have high hopes is most definately an understatement. Having this book teach some of Dime's greatest riffs, along with solos and technique for warm-ups and certain phrases. I know it kinda sucks that he's not featured on the cd, but you have to think, this Guitar God is the one who wrote 99% of what is in this book. And I mean really, why have him break it down Barney style considering that it's his music to begin with? If you want to learn Some of Dimebag's greatest RIFFS, along with a few good solos, this book is a must. There isn't much focus on Dime's actual style, but the lessons are there in black and white. From facing cover all the way to the back flap, Dimebag's theory on music never changes. Play what feels right and it will sound right. The book is a truly amazing.

If you are a fan of Dimebag and play guitar, you should get this book. It goes into detail analyzing almost all of his popular songs with Pantera. His sense of humor really makes the book too. Weeks and weeks of stuff to practice. Essential material for metal guitarists.

Dime lives in the pages of Riffer Madness. Great stories, advice, tips, and techniques wrapped up in one place. All done in traditional Dime style!

I bought this as a gift.
The recipient loved it, because he is a Dimebag Fan and he could not buy this product locally.
The price was reasonable.
I have nothing with which to compare as I do not buy magazines like this.
