One of the most energetic heavy metal guitar players of his time, and the inventor of neo-classical metal years before Malmsteen, I give you Randy Rhoads.

Techniques of the heroes: Stevie Ray Vaughn

This is my tribute lesson to another guitarist taken before his time. Tragically killed in a freak helicopter crash, this guy is one of the best blues guitarists that ever set foot onto the scene. Known for his Hendrix covers among-st many other things, it's a safe bet to say that if you never got to see Hendrix live but managed to see Stevie live, then you got 95% of the show Hendrix would've given as well.
