Jakub Żytecki: 20 Dynamic Rock Fusion Licks

20 Dynamic Rock Fusion Licks

Enhance Your Playing With These 20 Inspirational Rock Fusion Licks!

Jakub's taking the world by storm and he certainly held nothing back when creating this incredible lick series! Combining his polished technique with inspirational flare, these are some of the most creative rock fusion licks around today.

Superimposition is a big element in how Zytecki achieves such an interesting and refreshing sound to his lines and it's a tricky concept to pull off. The general harmony to this track is a groovy G#m backing and Zytecki (like all of us), makes good use of pentatonics to get his rock vibe. This time however, he shows you how you can superimpose the sounds of Dorian, Mixolydian, Augmented arpeggios and Melodic/Harmonic minor tonalities (amongst others) onto the basic minor harmony. Fused with strategically placed chromatics, dissonant melodic colour notes, unexpected rhythmic measures and some wide interval phrases, this pack is going to spice up your Rock Fusion playing and show you exactly the kind of creativity required to make your playing sound unique.

This really is MUST LEARN material, if you want to increase your Rock Fusion chops and top up your own creative flare!

As ever, we have accurately transcribed every note and included the TAB/notation in the download, full backing tracks, audio solos and lick notes.

Chris Broderick: Megadeth is over... on to bigger and brighter things?

Chris Broderick
Due to artistic and musical differences, it is with great reluctance that I announce my departure from Megadeth to pursue my own musical direction. I want all of you to know how much I appreciate the amount that you the fans have accepted and respected me as a member of Megadeth for the last seven years, but it is time for me to move on. I wish Dave and everyone in Megadeth all the best. I am working on a few things of my own and hope that when they come out, you will all dig it.

Until then,
Chris. \m/
