Striker – “Too Late” guitar lesson and cover competition

Jan 22nd, 2016

With “Too Late”, Striker created a metal anthem, that is simply crying for headbanging and posing in style – proven in their latest music video (see below).

To those who are begging for more than just playing the air guitar, your prayers have been heard: Striker guitarist Tim Brown just uploaded a detailed guitar lesson for the latest single of the upcoming album “Stand In The Fire”, which will be released on February 5th.

In this video he is teaching all the riffs, licks and solos of the song:

“This song is full of classic 80′s metal tricks, like using the push (or syncopation) in your rhythm playing, using broken chords over a changing background riff, and last but not least, all of the epic shred and tapping to melt your fingers on. Though simple on first listen, there are lots of complex parts that can increase the difficulty and challenge that will make this song fun for all levels of guitarist to play.”

The corresponding video can be seen here:

To make sure not to miss a single note, the tabs of “Too Late” are ready for download on as well.

And last but not least: All prospective guitar heroes out there have the chance to win the new album “Stand In The Fire”. All you have to do is to upload your guitar cover of “Too Late” on Facebook or YouTube and to post it on Striker’s facebook wall.

So grab your axe and start shredding!
