Here are 5 guitar licks to help get you out of a plateau and bring back the motivation to keep playing. It doesn't matter where you feel you are in your playing or how successful you are, you are not alone. Every musician goes through this phase of near depression where you feel you are going nowhere. So I have done my bit to try and combine 5 (more like 10) licks to help you get back on track and help you out. They are a challenge but they are chosen specifically because they go very well together.

I’m a guitarist from the UK, completely self-taught and have been playing since I was 12. I play Hard Rock including AC/DC, Van Halen, Ozzy Osbourne and more modern influences including Alter Bridge and Steel Panther.
I graduated with a First Class (BA Hons) Music Business Degree from the University of Sussex, studied it at BIMM Manchester.
At uni, I helped arrange a masterclass for Ozzy Osbourne/Firewind guitarist Gus G and played an important part in the preparations for a Guthrie Govan clinic. Personal highlights of mine include playing on stage with Steel Panther in January 2018 and when I got the opportunity to spend the day with Steve Vai on his Passion and Warfare Anniversary Tour.
Since launching the channel properly in 2015, I am very pleased to have received positive comments from Sam Coulson (Asia), Michael Starr (Steel Panther), Rick Graham, Henning Basse (Firewind Lead Vocalist) and other notable figures in the guitar world.
I teach subscribers complex rock licks, provide other tuition videos and demonstrate exciting kit and equipment for shops such as RichTone Music in Sheffield, Sounds Great Music in Cheadle.
I’m a connoisseur of fine guitars and I am very proud to be known on YouTube for being a user of Charvel Guitars, Yamaha THR amps, EVH Gear and Stormshadow Guitarworks.
