Michael Lee Firkins is one of the hottest players around, possessing a guitar style of incredible depth and maturity that belies his young age. On this DVD he gives a thorough and well-rounded lesson dealing with scales and routines, whammy bar effects for unique slide and pedal steel sounds, overdubbing lead harmonies and solos over a rhythm part, blues leads, tapping effects and real tapping for lightning fast runs, fingerpicking for both lead and rhythm, Jimmy Page and Joe Walsh styles, special harmonica and banjo effects, open-string tapping styles, and advanced sweeping and arpeggio techniques and exercises. This is a rare opportunity to get in on some red-hot info from a truly unique and gifted artist. You'll never miss a note! All exercises are transcribed in the accompanying booklet, corresponding to example numbers on the screen. And of course, all right- and left-hand techniques are shown close-up, with special split-screen effects, so you can closely observe and learn all the subtleties the top players are known for. Michael Lee Firkins is one of the most talked-about and brilliant new talents to burst upon the music scene in a long time. His combination of rootsy sound and influence coupled with truly modern, inventive technique and phrasing has made him a standout among his peers. Hailing from Omaha, Nebraska, he currently resides in California, where he continues to work on solo albums for the Shrapnel label.

"I must say your website is far better than any other I've encountered during my conquest for guitar picks sold on the web or at any retailer in my new town of residence. Your site was the first I've seen (of many) to have picks listed in an accessory department (the pictures were really swell) or any other I've checked, for that matter."
