Periphery’s Mark Holcomb Shows You Some Sliding Legato Tricks

The folks at Guitar World recently shot a series of guitar lessons with Mark, the most recent of which covers various sliding and legato techniques to help spice up your riff-writing (not for solos in this instance, as Mark specifies). Pretty cool stuff. Check it out, along with some of the other lessons Guitar World has also shot with Mark, below:
