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