Wanna see what you’ve missed last week? Let’s break down WLOTD’s episodes 23 to 26:
WLOTD Day 23:
Steve made a comeback from his sickbed and gave us a rundown of one of his favorite good old rock and roll riffs, from the 1989 Kix single Blow My Fuse.This track comes from the glam metal band’s breakthrough record under the same name, earning Kix a platinum record and placing itself firmly on the no. 46 spot on the Billboard Charts in the same year.
WLOTD Day 24:
This particular lick comes from the underrated yet super fun track, Muscle of Love, by the Alice Cooper Band. This catchy riff may not be top of mind when it comes to playing or practicing, but if you’re looking for a timeless lick to have loads of fun with, this one’s definitely for you.
WLOTD Day 25:
The funky and groovy Lenny Kravitz is Steve’s main man in this episode, with the fun-to-play single from his 1991 album Mama Said, Always On the Run. This track is actually a collaboration between Kravitz and Slash from Guns N’ Roses, initially meant for the band’s studio album—and now it’s on Guitar Hero: Aerosmith.
WLOTD Day 26:
On June 2, it will have been 30 years since Metallica unleashed the 1986 track Master of Puppets, from the critically-acclaimed studio album with the same title. This song is one of Steve’s picks to play to up his speed when he was younger, and focuses on the extensive use of downpicking. Great for those looking for a challenging lick to practice on.
