Troy Stetina Packages Coming Soon To Jammmz!

We're glad to announce that we are going to join forces with Mr. Troy Stetina - the man responsible for the classic "Speed Mechanics for Lead Guitar", "Metal Lead Guitar Vol. 1 &2" and many other books that taught a generation of guitar players.

In cooperation with Hal Leonard Publishing Inc. and Troy Stetina - packages based on Troy's classic books, presented by Troy himself with videos and backing tracks, will be available exclusively & only on

Troy StetinaTroy Stetina is an internationally renowned guitarist, leading authority in guitar education and workshop clinician. He has authored more than 40 rock and metal guitar methods for Hal Leonard Corporation, which have been translated into numerous languages and have sold over 1 million copies worldwide. Troy is endorsed by PRS Guitars, Engl Amps, Vader Cabinets and Lampifier Microphones. He is also the guitarist for the hard rock band Second Soul, and runs artist relations for Lampifier Microphones.

Perhaps the best known of Troy’s works is the classic book/CD guitar method, Speed Mechanics for Lead Guitar, often referred to as the “shredders’ Bible.” Published in 1990, it was the first major work in electric guitar pedagogy to standardize an effective approach to achieving the highest levels of guitar technique. Other popular Stetina works include Metal Lead Guitar Volumes 1 and 2, Metal Rhythm Guitar Volumes 1 and 2, Total Rock Guitar, and the complete ear-training and theory manual, Fretboard Mastery, published in 2007.

Troy Stetina

Troy StetinaHis latest instructional work is Troy Stetina: The Sound and the Story released in 2011 and featuring over three and a half hours of interviews, technique lessons, and composition lessons teaching six Second Soul songs, plus a look behind the scenes in the studio with the making of the Second Soul record. The DVD also features special invitation guest lessons by Mark Tremonti (Alter Bridge/Creed), Michael Angelo Batio (MAB), Bill Peck (Exit the Ride), and Eric Friedman (Creed).

Troy StetinaHis most recent musical effort is with the modern hard rock band Second Soul, which released their debut album “Beyond the Infinite” in 2012. “Beyond the Infinite” features a driving hard rock style and 14 tracks of guitar madness, including an entended lick-trading assault between Troy and his former student, Mark Tremonti, within the outro of the song Burn (Track 6).

Previously, in 2007 Troy joined forces with prog rock/metal band Dimension X to perform on and produce the sophomore concept album, “Implications of a Genetic Defense” (Unicorn Records). This record received rave reviews by a variety of prog critics for it’s exceptional and complex instrumental passages. Before that, Troy’s guitar CD Exottica (2000) featured a melodic hard rock instrumental style, and found a home backing MTV shows such as “The Osbournes.”

Still working on it. Some licensing issues with Hal Leonard and format issues to contend with.
