In these lessons we'll look at the foundations of tone, the style in which Angus and Malcolm voice their chords and give them movement, some of the pentatonic licks they use, the use of open string licks, and double stops. In the final lesson you can jam along to a rockin' custom jam track!Published: 06/02/2010 Upgrade

We'll top it all off with a play along to a custom backing track, so you can experiment with these concepts!Published: 08/17/2010 Upgrade
