Selected instructional book/CD excerpts:
Total Rock Guitar: Desolation Jam (industrial metal)
Total Rock Guitar: Strummer (alt. college rock)
*Modern Metal, Signature Licks: "Southtown" (P.O.D.)
*Modern Metal, Signature Licks: "Denial" (Sevendust)
*Modern Metal, Signature Licks: "Edgecrusher" (Fear Factory)
*Rage Against the Machine, Signature Licks: "Testify"

*Note: 'Signature Licks' books recreate popular songs minus vocals and with one guitar part isolated on the right channel and all other instruments on the left channel. Other than this altered stereo field, however, the sound is virtually dead-on to the original -- quite an accomplishment when you consider the fact that we are recreating major label quality mixes at a tiny fraction of the time and cost.
