Displaying dazzling technique, Marty Friedman gives you an intensive lesson in exotic scales, odd time signatures, theory, solo construction with actual demonstrations, exercises for picking and the left hand, Japanese-sounding scales, exotic half-step bend scales, playing out of time, and the thought processes behind soloing.
