The JamPlay Artist Series features lessons taught by progressive guitarists from all styles of music. These lessons focus on each artist's particular style, and are taught by either the artist himself(found under "Artists"), or a qualified instructor familiar with that artist's playing style ("In The Style Of").

Unconventional. Diabolical. Just plain crazy! Learn a fresh, quirky and MUSICAL approach to extreme guitar playing!

Lesson 1: Series Introduction
Guns N' Roses guitarist Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal pulls out all the stops in his blistering artist series. Dive into the intense, yet seemingly effortless, playing style of a true legend in our time. Learn the mental discipline and get the physical training necessary to take your playing to the next level!

Lesson 2: The Drummer Is King!
Of all the crazy antics and skills you'll learn in this series, learning your place in the rhythm section may be the most important and arguably the most difficult! Learn the importance of playing behind the beat and letting the pulse of the rhythm lead you! Apply this concept over a grotesquely slow metronome setting and LAY IT BACK!

19:07 mins 3.5 Skill

Lesson 3: Focus on the Rhythm
Now try taking the concepts learned in the last lesson and apply them to chords and strumming. The physical differences between playing chords and single notes provide an interesting challenge when staying continually behind the beat.

13:58 mins 3.5 Skill

Lesson 4: Do You Have an Accent?
Make sure you're thinking and playing behind the beat.Check! Now Bumblefoot makes sure you are thinking about each note and each beat you play. Just like the spoken word, good guitar playing is punctuated. Learn a great drill for working accenting into your playing!

9:54 mins 3.0 Skill

Lesson 5: Why.Yes I Do!
Now that you've practiced playing with accents at a basic level, learn this blazing sequence in C major and put your chops to the test!

9:38 mins 4.0 Skill

Lesson 6: Sweeping Sensation
Done much sweep picking? Whether you are experienced in this technique or brand new, this exercise will dramatically improve your coordination and hand synchronization while sweeping. This isn't your average minor chord sweep!

7:48 mins 4.5 Skill

Lesson 7: Sweep it under the Rug
Take the same ascending drill from the last lesson, move it around a bit more, and reverse it. It's even harder going down! Take it slow!

10:43 mins 4.5 Skill

Lesson 8: Sweep Up More Stuff!
Slackers beware! Bumblefoot introduces another picking variation and connects the ascending and descending sweeping patterns for one mind and finger boggling exercise. Whatever you do, DON'T CHEAT! Practice the picking exactly as you're shown and keep it clean. You'll be amazed at what this will do for your playing!

11:59 mins 5.0 Skill

Lesson 9: Mental Multitasking
A seasoned guitar player can have multiple active channels going in his mind at once. That's what helps the masters play a rhythm and a melody line at the same time. That's what makes singing complex melodies and playing solid rhythm guitar at the same time a possibility. Learn how to separate parts of your mind and allow it to work on many things at once!

8:14 mins 3.5 Skill

Lesson 10: Huh? Two Scales at Once?
Put mental multitasking to work with your hands. Practice playing a simple C major scale, but play it in a round. Start it, and then while continuing to play it in sequence, start it again!

4:07 mins 3.5 Skill

Lesson 11: One Step Ahead of Your Hands!
Sharpen your mind like a samurai sword with this exercise! While playing one note, think and speak the next note you will play. Practice this to a metronome with different note values.EEK!

12:17 mins 4.0 Skill

Lesson 12: Does Your Left Know What Your Right Is Doing?
Here's one more brain tearing exercise! Practice playing different rhythmic groupings with each hand at the same time. Then, try to talk while you're doing it! Make these mental multitasking lessons part of your practice routine, and they will greatly prepare you for things to come!
