Lick Library has released “Learn To Play Slipknot”. The package features nearly three hours of guitars lessons explained to you by the super shredder himself, Andy James. He clearly demonstrates how you can explore the very different playing techniques of Mick Thomson and Jim Root. The split screen guitar lesson illustrates what both of Andy’s hands are doing as he takes you through each riff and solo note for note at slow, medium and up to tempo pace.
Learn To Play Slipknot takes five Grammy nominated / winning tracks for Best Metal Performance, covering the seven year period to 2008. From the second album, Iowa, comes the melodic ‘Left Behind‘, then from the third album, The Subliminal Verses, Andy explores the alternate metal style of ‘Duality’ and the guitar riffs of ‘Before I Forget’, which were based on elements of an earlier song, ‘Carve’. Andy then moves on to breakdown the pounding groove of ‘Psychosocial’ and the melody and accessibility of ‘Dead Memories’, from the fourth album All Hope Is Gone, to show the full diversity of Slipknot.
