Sorry about the real simple lessons here, but since this is the first time I'm actually learning how to use this "LESSON" composer here at WN, you'll have to bear with me for the time being. :)

OK, everyone, this is a simple little lesson for anyone interested in the Marty Friedman style of playing. As we all know, Marty Friedman was 1/2 of the amazing group called Cacophony. Also featuring another phenominal player, Jason Becker, who is now suffering with ALS...a.k.a. Lou Gherig's Disease.

Anyway, if you like Marty Friedman, or not, you have to respect him for his abilities, and agree that he's a very unique player. He's not your typical neo-classical shredder, rather, his lead playing style is more based around Japanese scales & Asian-inspired scales, with a ton of emotion thrown in the mix!

I'm going to show you one of the scales he's fond of here in the example at the bottom of the page.
