For all of you metal guitar players out there, I think I have something you'll appreciate. Now I know there are a ton of guys on YouTube with "how-to-play" videos for the guitar, but I recently stumbled on this one and found his lessons very helpful.
Check out his lesson for Megadeth's Holy Wars. Trying to learn the verse always gave me trouble and I would often lose patience when trying, but this lesson finally gave me the right idea. (Note that the lesson focuses on Holy Wars alone, and does not expand into The Punishment Due…which probably merits a video of its own)
He puts the tab on the page and plays each part several times, builds each part on top of the previous one, and does a good job of guiding you through the process.
If you like what you see here, check out his YouTube page. He has a lot of great lessons for Megadeth, Slayer, and lot of other great bands. I hope you found this as useful as I did, and if anyone has other great instructional channels they know of, go ahead and post them- you can never know too many songs!
