Quick Lick: Blue Öyster Cult - "(Don't Fear) The Reaper" Video Lesson



+ Add a Comment


I kind of wish I was better at using a airplane simulator thing. They seem cool but there's a steep learning curve.



Nice short quick lick lesson. I like these because they are quick, to the point and contain no stupid, bullshit act like that piece of crap lesson from "Steel Panther" guitarist.

Damn good job on this one. Keep'em coming.




Nothing will ever replace the 80's!!! Van Halen, Ozzy, Styx, WASP, KISS, Bon Jovi, Whitesnake, Billy Squier Def Leppard Etc. The list goes on and on.....



I listen to just about all of the bands you named and i do agree that some of the stuff like the screamo sucks



As a die hard metal fan of the 80's I have a hard time grasping the new metal realm. To me this is a bunch of garbage that makes no sense to me. A metal song needs 3 things a catchy riff, kick ass lead break, and a powerful lead man. Don't get me wrong some of the new metal is ok. Disturbed, Godsmack, and Alice in Chains are the only 3 bands I like. However they can't replace bands like Black Sabbath, Fates Warning, Dokken, Helloween, Saxon, Skid Row, and so on. All these bands had something in common killer lead breaks and guitar harmony's that you can't even find anymore. Dokken's song In My Dreams has a lead break that put George Lynch on the map as a guitar god. I guess that's why some of the bands in the 80's are getting back together to show these new half ass bands how it's done.
