Michael Angelo Batio's Need for Speed

  • Опубликовано: 9 дек 2010
  • www.metalmethod.com/sk2010.htm - I asked Michael during the Speed Kills 2010 video shoot about his earliest experience playing guitar. I wondered how much he practiced and at what point his obsession with speed began. I wondered how his early experience differed from other players. This was his reply. - Doug Marks
    Speed Kills 2010 is the revised version of the shredder's bible, Speed Kills. Available at www.metalmethod.com/sk2010.htm

    You can begin working with the Speed Kills DVD even if you're an intermediate guitarist. Just play the exercises at a comfortable speed. Work with a metronome or drum machine to slowly increase tempo. In a few months you'll be amazing. That's how you become an advanced player.

    i fucking knew it that fooling around and just playing with your guitar is more important then those dull exercises
    every friend or guitar teacher that i practiced with told me to do exercises
    i did that and after 15 min i wanted cut the freaking strings because its boring so i started playing my own stuff and all kinds of weird combination which is more fun and you get creative
    and this man, this great man did the same thing
    i really respect, plus he seems like a really cool guy

    @gipper2112 That's a string dampener invented and patented by MAB. He uses it to mute open strings when he's doing two hand tapping.

    @santeclexmark I've discussed with Michael doing an in depth interview. We never seem to find the time. I actually have several questions that I've put together over the past couple of years. Every time we get together there's something pressing and we never get around to the interview. This is about as close as we've ever gotten. Maybe with you're encouragement we'll get this done. Thanks.
