As a player, Van Halen single-handedly-nicely, twin-handedly-launched thousands and thousands of rock gamers such exciting techniques as two-handed tapping and harmonics.

Thanks Blake….. I hope I’ve repaired any harm done and added a couple of issues value reading &/or taking the time to look into. Seriously, get the Gene Lees guide…. about $15 at Amazon. It has been a lyrical life-saver to me for the reason that day it came out. Mine isn’t torn & tattered but, however then it is a hard-cowl. When you get into it, you will discover it robust to ignore. It is a NICE e-book, just for the general information, not to mention the precise use for locating rhymes.
