Brian May Star Licks Video and Booklet pdf

"Brian May, founder of Queen, and one of rock's finest guitarists, has set standards of excellence throught his carrer. Always the innovator, Brian has contributed greatly to the success of the band and has influenced countless other musicians in the process. Few have been able to emulate the unique Brian May guitar sytle, which has become such recognizeable contribution to the Queen sound"  
"The Brian May Package. Brian explains in depth, how he creates "The Queen sound" by taking you on a complete run-through of his equipment. This features his guitar (the fireplace), amplifieres (VOX AC 30's), and effects (each individually demonstrated). In adition to all this, Brian takes you step by step through a fantastic selection of his hottest licks and solos, featuring material from 11 different Queen albums. Each example is played twice, once regularly and once slowly. During this incredible 45 minute tape, you'll learn to play the licks and solos from such songs as "Brighton Rock", "Bohemian Rhapsody", "Tie Your Mother Down", "Dragon Attack", "Crazy Little Thing Called Love", and many more. And finally, your tape would not be complete without spending a few minutes on harmony soloing, which Brian discusses and demonstates at the conclusion of the tape. This is truly a unique opportunity for you to recive a "Private Guitar Lesson" from one of today's foremost guitarist, whose musical contributions have spanned over a decade of popular rock music."
