“Though he’s pretty much a household name in heavy metal, Alex defies categorization by musical genre.” (Making Music, Jan 2015).
An original member of Bay Area thrashers Testament (which he joined at age sixteen) and a respected New York improviser of multiple styles, Alex Skolnick is also the leader of the critically acclaimed world acoustic project, Planetary Coalition. In this Acoustic Excursions edition of his Unbound Guitar series, Alex dives deep into his technique and creative approaches on acoustic guitar.
”I’ve always had a strong relationship with the acoustic guitar and in fact, many of my songs are written on acoustic even though I may ultimately record and perform them on electric.
In this course, I’ll perform 5 full-length acoustic compositions, but I’ve broken out each of song sections into a series of individual studies so that I can pass on many of the techniques and creative approaches that, for me, make acoustic guitar so much fun and gratifying to play.
I’ve had a great time taking these songs and converting them to acoustic (or in some cases, bringing them back to acoustic). My hope is you’ll be able to use many of the approaches and techniques that I cover here useful in your own playing!”
