Lesson Info

In this set of lessons we'll be teaching you the epic rocker "Empire", as made famous by Queensryche. This is a powerful, dynamic, and dramatic tune that features huge power riffs and an explosive guitar solo! We'll examine the tone and gear, the main guitar hook in the song, all the different harmony guitars that occur throughout, the use of double stops and pedal tones, the explosive guitar solo, and much more...and as always, culminating with a play along to a custom backing track!
