Alfred Music Publishing is updating their new Alfred Artist DVD series. This instructional video series has endeavored to teach musicians on some finer points of navigating and enjoying their musical instrument, via the help of proven, accomplished masters of their instrument/musical field.
The company's newest Artist DVD addition is called Hot Rock Licks, and relies on the expertise of Greg Howe. Howe is a rock, funk, jazz, blues and fusion expert who has been playing the guitar for decades ever since the ripe age of ten, in fact. Beginning his career as a shred player in the 1980s for Mike Varney's Shrapnel Records, he has played alongside the likes of Enrique Iglesias, Michael Jackson, Justin Timberlake, and more.
The DVD is a one-hour affair that covers such techniques as three-octave scales, alternate picking, and more via the help of on-screen tabs. Two-handed lick guidance and other instructions are also provided, in what Alfred Music Publishing is hoping consumers will find to be a complete instructional package.
The instructional DVD is available for $24.95 and can be found in music retail stores.
