We Teach Every Style of Music and Every Guitar Style

It’s fun to learn different guitar styles you wouldn’t normally think of playing.
Let’s say that you are totally into metal and that is all you want to play. Totally fine. It’s great to have direction.

Interestingly enough though: sometimes, styles of music you’re not all that much into, turn out to be super much fun to play on guitar.
Meanwhile: you’re expanding your sonic palette, you’re expanding your musical taste, you’re growing as a musician.

Getting back to the metal guitarist example: many of the great metal guitarists you’re into, oftentimes studied classical guitar or classical music.
In doing so they enrich their metal playing with broader influences, incorporating techniques and colors of the classical genre.

Imagine how delving into blues, would enrich the phrasing of metal solos.
Dokken’s George Lynch or Jake E Lee are only some of the many guitarists who use blues colors, like the b5 blue note, in their metal solos to create fiery, bluesy colored phrases.

The lesson we can take from this: no matter what style of music you are into, you stand out as a guitarist within that genre, the more stylistic influences you can draw from.
