Prog-gnosis

Seven- and eight-string guitar phenom Tosin Abasi from the progressive metal band Animals as Leaders teaches the concepts and techniques behind his brilliant playing and composing, using choice excerpts from many of his band’s songs to illustrate them. Over the course of 13 lessons, compiled from his Prog-nosis columns that were featured in Guitar World magazine, Tosin demonstrates and teaches many of his signature moves such as alternate picking, economy/sweep picking, hybrid picking, thumb slapping, double picking, playing in odd and shifting meters, devising wide-range chord voicings for the eight-string guitar, seven-string arpeggios, two-hand tapping and more. The guitarist also offers some effective ways to warm up both hands and practice.
