Electric

Getting started on electric is a great way to go as well. But like the acoustic, it has it's ups and downs as well.

Dwayne plays Metallica Solo example

This video is of me playing the middle solo to the Four Horseman by Metallica. I truly think one of Kirk's best off this album. This is a example of what can be done when you learn scales, alternate picking, ear & eye training, through lots of practice & focus. Notice also at the end, the use of power chords. This whole song is awesome and utilizes alot of what made Metallica the metal monsters they are.

Learn Tips & Tricks On How To Maintain Your Guitar Fretboard | DwaynesGuitarLessons |

When playing the guitar, make sure to always keep it maintained. Apply oil to the fretboard lightly with a light clean cloth. Make sure to only use proper oil designed for guitars and wood.

And make sure not to apply too much. You just want to keep the fretboard moist and hydrated. Especially if you live in a dry climate. Always keep your guitar clean and oiled up so that it plays the best that it can. That way it will always be ready to rock when you need it to.
