There's not much in it that hasn't been beaten to death in the threads on this forum.

I think it´s only worth getting if you´d like to see some showoff (and the originals of the Phycho exercises, rack explaination included) ;). I couldn´t really get much out of that video.

If you´re trying to learn alternate picking, I´d go for Michael Angelo Batios Speed Kills 1 and Paul Gilberts Insane Guitar.

Its not really a very useful video unless for some reason you can't find the vast swathes of technique threads scattered on forums.

I have to note here that JP's picking technique isn't one you'll want to emulate, while he may have great chops, he anchors his picking hand and it makes him very tense during fast runs.

wel, his hand looks very tensed, that doesn´t mean his wrist is. I like his picking technique, mine is pretty similar, you´ll find your own anyway, if you imitate or not. You can also see Steve picking with his fingertips, what you´re also told not to do.

What is "chops"? Can you tell me ;)?

That's what I would call "bedding in control".

Minimal movement & higher precision.

well, look at Zakk Wylde, lol. This guy has to be careful not to hit his head while picking...

SUPER boring!!! Good luck trying not to all asleep through that one! The exercises are good for your technique, but most aren't very exciting musically. Better to get Gilbert's Intense Rock Complete (I and II together in one DVD).

Yes, I think it was Intense rock, not insane guitar. Sorry!

But I think you don´t need the second one.

oh, it is! Yo could have a good teaching video instead, what you will have to buy anyway now ;).


Well, Rock Discipline is not that bad, but there are much better videos to show you how to play the guitar. I think it´s more a showoff, not completely, but mostly.
