1. In this video I demonstrate several of the soloing concepts I like to use. These are extensions of basic Pentatonic scales and blues licks. As you'll see, there's a lot you can do with such simple tools, you just need to know the tricks!

  3. Van Halen‘s “Top Jimmy”, played by me. This is a goofy little experiment in multi-camera angles and editing as much as anything else.

  5. In this lesson I show you a great exercise for getting your legato playing up to snuff. By isolating specific pairs of fingers you learn how to adjust your approach depending on tempo, what string you’re on and where you are on the neck.
