I play guitar and have played since the late 80s but am by no means a maestro on the instrument and am always trying to find a new way to do what I enjoy doing. Mark John Sternal has done an acceptable job with how he shows a simple way to play some of the typical things Heavy Metal guitarists play like chuggin on the low E string as well as using a scale (here he uses the E minor pentatonic scale) and explains why he's doing and how he's going to do it.

Not sure if I'd label this intermediate because while some of the tricks may seem intermediate they aren't really. Metal guitar gets heavily into Modal Scales as well as heavy arpeggiated riffs which aren't discussed here.

What Mark DOES do is explain things like how to get a heavy tone by how to set up your amps as well as your stomp box settings. Then he explains some of the things Metal guitarists use such as pull offs, hammer-ons as well as scale use. The material is graduated to a point where you are playing the very song that plays through while the DVD is parked at the Menu. It's not a bad tune but nothing all that intermediate.

If you're an intermediate player, you may want to pass on this however if you're a beginner and you've been wanting to learn how to jam with some of the big boys, this DVD will give you a step in the right direction. If you learn the song on here, you can pick it apart in pieces & use them to comp with others in a garage band.

Overall I give this DVD 4 out of 5 stars due to it being an excellent beginner starting point but not quite intermediate (in MY opinion - your mileage may vary).

Okay, I bought this from one of the vendors on Amazon under the new section for about $8.00 and for that amount it was well worth it. Now I'm not really a beginner, but I haven't played in a long time and wanted to see what I can learn from it. What I really liked about it was that in the beginning the instructor talks about how to get that Metal sound from the Amp and effects, and he doesn't use or illustrates expensive guitar equipment to show you, he used items that anyone can buy at a low cost. The one thing I wish the DVD had was downloadable PDF's of the lessons. Now if you have played guitar and feel you are still pretty much a beginner this DVD is for you, but one worming...this DVD does start out slow and builds from there. All in All it's a good DVD.

I've only been through this once so I don't have it down yet.
But, I was surprised how well I did.
The instructor walks you through amp settings and gives great tip for getting that true metal sound from your guitar.
This includes a few simple "songs" the instructor has come up with for players to hone their skills.
I will play this over and over again until I have it down. I think it's a fantastic tool for learning lead playing metal. I have been concentrating mostly on rhythm but this is easy to follow and understand.
It's the FIRST instructional video I've purchased where the instructor actually started from the beginning, working up to a complete song without losing me.
Great Video, I will use it often until it's second nature.
5 PLUS stars for this one.
If you are a beginner, this is the ONE for you.

I like a no nonsense approach to learning new stuff, and this course is a very to the point approach to learning serious Metal guitar. There's little fluff to get in the way of learning the proper way to play Metal, and it's pretty fast paced with a great method(tempo)employed to help you get the chords down in a jiffy. Great additional items are also included ,like a proper gear list to get the great Metal sound and tips on how to use said equipment, nice.

All told, this is the easiest to follow, best done example of how to play Metal guitar right, no muss, no fuss. Highly recommended!

I know some what of a lot of guitar theory and such. This DVD is absolutely what it sets out to do teach you three metal songs that the author has created. Way too many people expect this DVD to turn you into Mark Morton (All That Remains Guitarist) that comes with years and practice. But this DVD will set you on the right path, it teaches you all the foundation techniques in order to understand and play metal. He gives good examples in the music to show you how the tecniques are applied musically. I also own his lick by lick Metallica which is amazing, too many people out there try to write tabs for music and some of those people tab the music wrong the author gets it right in a easy to understand format without all the laden guitar terminology. This book is good for a beginner or advance beginner.

Well here goes, when I started playing guitar in the 80's, all i wanted to do was learn songs, and it was usually a familiar intro or favorite solo here and there, didnt take the time or have the patience to learn how chords fit together with scales,playing in the right key etc. now that i have really got into this DVD, it is an excellent learning tool, learning notes,scales and chords by the key that I've always played but didnt take the time to get educated, was in to much of a hurry to be a "rockstar" back then and not learn the essentials, $12.00 give or take for this DVD is a steal, I would say beginners through intermediate, would get a lot out of this DVD, do yourself a favor, buy it,lock yourself in a room for the weekend, put this baby on and start jamming, wish they had quality DVD's like this back then. I have the AC/DC DVD as well, its great and the EVH is on the way Thank you Mark John Sternal, for keeping it simple and making it a blast to play/learn again. Gary P.
