Zakk Wylde's Blazing-Fast Chromatic Blues Shred Lick

Zakk Wylde's Blazing-Fast Chromatic Blues Shred Lick

Black Label Society frontman and former Ozzy Osbourne shredder Zakk Wylde recently visited Guitar World HQ to shred through a bluesy chromatic lick in E minor.

Wylde—who's playing one of his new Wylde Audio guitars in the video—will release his new solo album, Book of Shadows II, April 8 via Entertainment One Music (eOne Music).

The disc, his first solo release in 20 years, is the followup to 1996’s Book of Shadows. The album is available for preorder at bookofshadows2.com and iTunes.

In keeping with his road-dog reputation, Wylde will take part in this year's Generation Axe Tour with Steve Vai, Yngwie Malmsteen, Nuno Bettencourt and Tosin Abasi. Head here for more information. He also recently hit the road with the Hendrix Experience Tour, which celebrates the music of the late Jimi Hendrix. You can check out all the dates here.
