The Summer issue of Guitarist magazine, on sale 6 July 2011, features an exclusive video tutorial from Ozzy/Firewind axeman Gus G in which he discusses - and demonstrates - techniques that work on both the picking and fingering hand.

Here's a taster from the same session in which Gus plays three classic Ozzy riffs. He plays them clearly and distinctly and it was a pleasure to be in the same room as he did so.

Simon Bradley is a guitar and especially rock guitar expert who worked for Guitarist magazine and has in the past contributed to world-leading music and guitar titles like MusicRadar (obviously), Guitarist, Guitar World and Louder.
