Heres What People Have To Say About
'New Frontier Guitar'
Last week I signed up to the Andy James Guitar Academy course 'New Frontier Guitar: Metal Pentatonics'. Its has to be one of the most in depth and approachable breakdowns I have soon on Andy's approach to shredding and being melodic with the pentatonic scale. It goes from basic technique all the way up to crazy wide interval string skipping stuff. it's not just about licks, its about giving you the tools to create your own crazy pentatonic ideas. Well worth checking out!
I took New Frontier and the content is very very substantial. Its taking my playing to a new level! Thanks AJ and Team!
I decided to purchase 'New Frontier Guitar' because Andy uses pentatonics in a quite unique way: pentatonics are probably the easiest way to build up your soloing phrases, but it is a common-place for most of the teachers out there to use them with very little imagination, with the typical bluesy sound; Andy's approach to pentatonics, on the contrary, is a whole different thing, with his smooth and melodic shredding runs, with his tasteful sense of rhythmic variations.
And, of course, I bought the 'NFG' because I already knew how great is Andy as a teacher. Everything is broken down in a 'step-by-step' guide, in simple 'drills' and tips that allow you to develop your physical ability before you can face each exercise. I am SO happy with the course, it has provided me with many ideas (I'm still working on it though) and I think it is really making my playing more interesting.
What is the outcome from completing ‘Metal Pentatonics’ – and why order now?
When you order the complete Course you will massively improve as a guitarist and as a musician, and because this is brand new information previously unavailable you can be at the forefront of a Pentatonic Revolution!
