Watch the Lightning Tremolo online guitar lesson by Chris Buono from 50 Metal Guitar Licks You MUST Know
Jake E. Lee is truly an unsung metal guitar God. His work on Ozzy's Bark at the Moon and even more so on The Ultimate Sin is some of the most incredible metal guitar work put to tape (you know, that stuff they recorded to previous to computers). From fresh approaches to pentatonic soloing (no small feat) to mind boggling pitch modulations sans whammy bar, Jake was, is, and always will be the name. Using a EVH-style trem picking technique, Lee rips out a fitting end to his fiery solo in "Lightning Strikes" from The Ultimate Sin. This takes that same approach and ends with a natural minor moment of wavy half-step bends between 5 and b6 over the riff that sounds eerily similar to another Ozzy metal standard.
