Guitar virtuosos are few and far in between, the typical trend amongst them is usually their roles as mere instrumentalists, many which never get a chance to play with an actual band and have their intake into a full band’s collective and creative process.

With the simple yet complex riffs of the one they call Mr. Scary, comes a magnificent rush to head of insane guitar solos that will melt your brain and give you goose bumps. That was what the great George Lynch (former Dokken) shredder made us feel when playing with his former band. He will forever be remember for the many yet still underrated sound that they gave us in the 80’s.
