MEGADETH – Kiko Loureiro Talks Ibanez + Warmup Exercises

I’ve been a huge Angra fan for many years now, and Kiko Loureiro has been a massive influence on me as both a writer of music and a guitarist. I knew he’d be a great addition to Megadeth as soon as I heard the news that he was joining.


In this video from, Kiko talks about his history with Ibanez as well as some really awesome warmup exercises for both hands. Definitely a must watch for guitarists.

I studied music on both coasts (Berklee and SSU) and now I'm just trying to put my degree to some use. That's a music degree, not an English one. I'm sure you noticed.
