Guitar Tricks say: “Rock guitar music started as the sound of youth and energy. It was born from a young generation of musicians and performers during the 1960’s who grew up listening to blues, country, jazz and rock’n’roll from the 1940’s and 50’s. From all those influences they made something entirely new which captured the imagination of every following generation; Rock music.

“Metal style guitar is huge, powerful and all encompassing. The tones and sounds can be a bit intimidating to try to tackle on your own. We will outline for you a variety of ways to achieve Metal guitar mastery.

“Through these lessons you’ll learn how to dial in metal guitar tones, alternate picking techniques, shredding licks and a few artist studies so you can be sure you sound like the real deal.”

Away from the main lessons, there's access to artist studies, while there are 44 different instructors who will lead you through the lessons.

Personal progress is tracked on Guitar Tricks so you won’t get lost and if you’re looking for some inspiration, the website has a forum for players – and you can even send the Guitar Tricks team a video to get their feedback.

This offer ends on June 18, so if you want an awesome last-minute Father’s Day gift or fancy the promotion yourself, sign up for the $99 deal quickly.
