In this tutorial we're going to study the guitar tone and playing style of the legendary 80s guitarist George Lynch, from his tenure with the band Dokken in the 80s.

George Lynch’s legendary playing formed the foundation of Dokken’s hair metal sound. His rhythm riffing held their songs together and his solos were often the high point of the songs. Like many 80s guitarists, Lynch was among the first generation directly influenced by Van Halen’s innovative playing. This included hot-rodded, humbucker loaded guitars with locking vibrato bars, high gain tones, lots of heavy rhythm and speedy fretwork for solo lines!

In this tutorial we'll study Lynch’s style by breaking it down into several key factors and learn what makes them special, then we’ll learn to play some riffs and licks in his style. This tutorial will cover the basics of his gear and tone, the rhythm riffs and the lead licks. So, let's dive on in and check it out!
