Watch the Mama online guitar lesson by Chris Buono from 50 Metal Guitar Licks You MUST Know
Love'm or hate'm the power ballad is a metal mainstay and may be the hit in your catalog that buys the villa on all four ocean fronts. To get you properly acclimated to the needed lickage check out this must-know lick in the vein of Zakk Wylde. Though a die-hard card carrying bad-ass, Zakk exudes enormous emotion on the Ozzy track written for his lovely wife Sharon, "Mama, I'm Coming Home" from the No More Tears CD. Starting off with a gentle ascending run up the major pentatonic scale Zakk brings it home with a screaming minor 3rd double stop bend that flows right into perfectly executed descending major scale melodic content.
