Vintage Online Lesson: Zakk Wylde – Pentatonic Hardcore (1997)
In 1997, metal-guitar-god Zakk Wylde’s agreed to participate in an instructional video produced in Japan for Young Guitar magazine called “Pentatonic Hardcore.” The video gives fantastic insight into Wylde’s approach to soloing and the specific techniques he employs to achieve his unique sound.
The instructional video is an hour long and has Zakk going through many different basic and advanced skills including Pentatonic scales, chickin-pickin licks, vibrato, pinch harmonics, alternate picking and more.
The video also includes closeup performances of sections from Wylde’s own songs; “Losin’ Your Mind” and “Horse Called War” from 1994’s Pride and Glory, and “Sold My Soul” from 1996’s Book of Shadows.
Good stuff, Thanks
Love it. Been a huge zakk fan from the beginning, keep on rockn fukka…. 🙂
