Episode 2: In Step

Episode 3: Big Jumps

Episode 4: Take Four (and how to play the tapping lick from "Sevens")

Episode 5: Seeing Triple (and how to play the tapping lick from "Bad Asteroid")

I can't wait till my fro is full grown.
I've seen these on youtube, and I enjoyed the first one about chromatic notes and playing outside, it definitely adds something to my playing. A lot of the other techniques are too advanced for me though, but they're definitely good fun to watch. Guthrie is an absolutely fantastic player, and it seems that whatever he tries he nails.
My stuff

Gibson Les Paul Studio
Ibanez ADC120
Tanglewood TGRF VS
Blackstar HT20
Roland Micro Cube
Yeah. Not only is he a great player, but he's able to articulate his message very well, making him (IMO) as good a teacher as he is a guitarist.

This is some good stuff, especially the one on chromatics.
Trust me, I'm a Jedi.

You must control your use of the force, young Trizek.
He has to be crazy to dub the blues licks he plays 'normal'. In what planet is that considered normal?

The only real answer to the SG vs Les Paul debate is to get a Flying V and laugh at all the suckers who don't have one.

if you embrace inaccurate intonation it can be quite arousing.
