How To Play Guitar Like Daniel Champagne

Angus is a wonderful player and truefire were lucky enough to get him to make this fantastic course. Pentatonic Rock Alchemy is probably one of my favourite true fire courses, Angus is not only a great player but also a very solid teacher. If your looking for something a little different in the rock department check out this course.

Angus rides again! There's a very good reason why I was psyched the first moment I read about TrueFire's announcement of Angus Clark's newest course weeks ago, it rocks with superior ideas and really cements numerous important concepts like mixing the minor and major scales, hammer ons and pull offs and proper string bending with great utilization of the entire fretboard! Angus is definitely no-nonsense as he demonstrates distinctly but reminds us to go back and follow tab and practice on our own which is a superior teaching method. Angus fully expects us to be properly experienced at least intermediate and takes charge of his lessons which makes it all fun plus rewarding! Great stuff here fun packed into one rocking course!
