Hey guys! This lesson is going to be devoted to one of my favorite lead players in metal today - Per Nilsson of Scar Symmetry. After getting quite a few requests to break down some of Per's licks, I decided to piece together a solo "in the style of" that will get those fingers flying. It incorporates a lot of different licks of a classical nature and also of a fusion nature, except incorporated into metal, which is what makes Per's playing, in my opinion, very innovative to the genre!
Attached is the backing track at full speed (155BPM).
