Hello metal brothers!
This is Marios Iliopoulos from NIGHTRAGE. I have the pleasure to present you my own “corner” at THE GALLERY Webzine, in which I will talk about many things concerning the “six string goddess”….techniques, playing styles, variable methods and explorations on the guitaristic approach of songs and many more…
The purpose of this column is do something that has never been attempted before in Greece, through which I will share with you everything I have mastered all those years through guitar learning and playing.
Each post will contain a video in which I will present a tutorial of specific “themes”, accompanied by a very brief description of the video’s contents. Any questions that may arise or any comments posted will be gladly answered and discussed through the webzine’s comment section.
So, lets do this, in the name of metal!
