Melodic Creativity Secrets

Kevin teaches many neo-classical and classical style lead techniques.  Kevin loves Yngwie Malmsteen, but wanted to learn to think like Malmsteen, which meant listening to his influences.  Kevin discovered Bach, Vivaldi, and Paganini.  Ever since then, Kevin's goal was to make his guitar sound more like a violin, or harpsichord.  

Thus he began to develop a new style and approach on the instrument.
