OLLY STEELE – MONUMENTS Guitarist Teaches His Insane Downpicking Technique


Aw mane, cheh. Monuments‘s guitarist Olly Steele is beginning to teach online guitar lessons like a madman, and he wanted to give us a taste of some of the stuff we might learn from him. People pretty much berate both Olly and Browne with questions about their right hand/downpicking technique, so the riff boss decided to address it all in this video.

There’re some key concepts in there I’m sure we could all apply to our playing to keep our picking technique as dynamically even and accurate as possible. For lesson inquiries of your own, you can hit Olly up here.
