I can also recommend that book. It's great because it's split up into different sections so you can create your own practice routine using a few exercises from each section. Otherwise you can follow...

For me, I think Ex Lives is a good album on its own, but it didn't have that cheeky almost sarcastic feel of the other albums. It didn't sound 'fun'. :shrug: It's still a damn great album though and...

There were a few techniques that I always practised but never got the hang of. For example, tremolo picking and the punk-rock 'gallop' (early The Offspring comes to mind).

For both of these...
