    For teh metalz....there was THIS

    [VIDEO]]YouTube - Metal Method 1983 Complete Course[/VIDEO]

    And if you actually used this version of his course. You're probably as old as dirt.

    Doug's really come a long way since then. Although some say that his Complete Course has gotten much easier with the later revisions. Maybe I'll do a review of the '92 and '07 versions one of these days.

    Pretty neat find, dude. I love how his notation is musically horrendous, and that his first installment is on "Metal Gear." You know, givin' the kids the golden ticket into the club.

    First, you get the Kramer. Then, you get the Marshall. Then, you get the women.

    I'm pretty sure his signal path was something like: gtr->distortion pedal->gorilla amp->cheap mic->tascam portastudio

    Back then nobody cared about production. Thats what getting a record deal was for. To have a producer and engineer worry about shit like that. You just had to worry about Kramer+Marshall=Women

    When he hits the open A power chord, it sounds like the intro to "Owner of a Lonely Heart," haha.
    Too much focus leads to tunnel vision
    Too much faith leads to religion
    Too much knowledge leads to confusion
    Too many guitar lessons lead to jazz-fusion
