Just found your old metal method CD's in my closet, Doug. Glad to see you're on youtube!
"And the rest is History" he got that right as he is one of the fastest guitar player in guitar history
thats how they come to be the best guitarists lol
you are really a nice guy and i like the way u talk.....
Yngwie is phenomenal but i agree, he has an ego the size of the universe. Not cool.
so true ,the audience will tell u,but im still learning ,but i want to be on stage someday,i want the crowd to be into it,thats the most important thing to me,to say wow i did it, but i still wont think i was good,cause i'm my worst critic.great teacher,ty for vid.peace.
Very true. Very true.
0:35 Yoda: mode on :D
Lol MAB playing in a church. Kinda hard to imagine haha
I didn't know Randy but did meet his brother Kelly.
I like how the best guitarists around aren't complete assholes about their playing :)
this guy has all the guitar tech of yngwie minus the ego :D
You can begin working with the Speed Kills DVD even if you're an intermediate guitarist. Just play the exercises at a comfortable speed. Work with a metronome or drum machine to slowly increase tempo. In a few months you'll be amazing. That's how you become an advanced player.
If I ever become a famous guitarist, I ll know its becoz of u dude!
He's using his DEAN MAB signature model guitar based on a medieval design.
Haha speaks in a cool way!
what a funny, humble, down to earth guy, and amazingly talented.
What the hell??? I actually watched the whole interview! This is one of those interviews where you don't get bored and are on the edge of your seat listening intently.. awesome man! I actually wanna do the finger excersise because of him haha!
where can i buy that string muter?
Yeah never judge a book by its cover.... judge it by how many pages it has. LOL jk. Yeah compared to Yngwie, he is a much better teacher.
practice is so boring !! why we cant born with the talent to play fast????
His custom designed Dean MAB-1 Armorflame. Very awesome ax!
i fucking knew it that fooling around and just playing with your guitar is more important then those dull exercises
every friend or guitar teacher that i practiced with told me to do exercises
i did that and after 15 min i wanted cut the freaking strings because its boring so i started playing my own stuff and all kinds of weird combination which is more fun and you get creative
and this man, this great man did the same thing
i really respect, plus he seems like a really cool guy
"my teacher said he could not teach me anymore"
0:37 Lol, he imitates himself sounding like a child
He seems to be a really nice guy. I agree of what he said of getting bored with practicing exercises.
When i was 13,my guitar teacher told me he can't teach me anymore..
@JohnNortonMusic Not true but whatever... *sigh* stereotypes are pointless.
He talks alot of sense.
I'll give you the keys to the Lamborghini.
its amazing , how a super talented individual like him has no sign of arrogance !! I pray that you succeed in all the awsome things that you do MAB. :) Rock on
He is seems like such a genuine person, loved this video
funny guy and great guitarist :)
good journey :)
You may say whatever you want about his speed or his musicality, but as a teacher and a role model, it doesn't get much better than him.
Dean MAB Armorflame :)
one expectation of great musicians is to play really fast, AND IT MAKES SENSE....
Are the Speed Kills DVDs for advanced players?
what guitar is he using?
Seems to be a very nice fellow.
Michael is a nice, guys......
I was thinking he is very egoistic person...but after this video I think he is really nice person!
this guy is soooo right.... not often u come across a down to earth metal guitarist
Did you know Randy Rhoads back in the day Doug?
Michael Angelo make me wanna sell all three of my guitars -_-
@dmarks1 i thought it was capo
this guy was born to play fast
Ok, he started playing when he was 9 and his guitar teacher told him that he cant teach him any longer when he hit 13. thats only 4 years. this man is really born talented.
I imagine MAB doing his homework. Ultra-fast. Using four pens.
Down to earth besides being a phenomenal player. Great stuff.
I'm a bass player but i really want that guitar.
Very cool video! Thanks for the post! I can learn from this.
this vid is made on my b-day :)
so this is the legendary dmarks channel huh?
also which are some GREAT guitar videos?
@gipper2112 dont know if its the right spelling but its a capo
Cool, cool guy
omfg, there are just some people with an insane natural ability. then there are others, like myself, who have to practice like a MF'ing pig to reach just a little speed ^^
what the hell? did MAB make his homework?!
@dmarks1 your encouragement*
i need more of this guy
Thanks for uploading. He seems like a nice, normal guy. I like seeing that. Some other players tend not to be. Malmsteen for example.
haha what are you doing man hah love it
Thank you very much for this video!
well Doug, thanks the same way, and keep up the good job!
I admire you for your work, dedication and competence, thanks a lot.
@gipper2112 That's a string dampener invented and patented by MAB. He uses it to mute open strings when he's doing two hand tapping.
I met this dude in Rhode Island in the early to mid nineties, and he was one of the nicest people I have met. He can play about anything and play it good. Super nice guy.
Interesting stuff! Hes the man.
I´m just the same, I long for a positive reaction from others all the time
thanks! and the rest, is history
Great video, thanks for posting!
I love it when he does the voices! MAB... entertaining as always!
I studied w Michael back in In the day Privately..he is best of the best!
@nwcavertingoureyes No, it's all about getting the DVD done. And that's not a bad thing.
@dmarks1 it would be nice to see a real in depth interview on him.i have seen numerous times,since the 80s.
Cool interview, really gave me something to think about. Thanks for posting it Doug.
Thanks Doug & Michael! I love hearing the stories behind successful peoples motivation and inspiration. Great interview.
@santeclexmark I've discussed with Michael doing an in depth interview. We never seem to find the time. I actually have several questions that I've put together over the past couple of years. Every time we get together there's something pressing and we never get around to the interview. This is about as close as we've ever gotten. Maybe with you're encouragement we'll get this done. Thanks.
@psychodelicdragon I'll give you an introduction to Michael Angelo Batio. Search YouTube for this phrase: Speed Kills No Boundaries
Let me know what you think.
I want more interviews of him!
Thanks doug and Michael for all your hard work! You guys are awsome!
I wish I could do what he did, love what he has to say
@codyrox8 That's MAB's signature guitar manufactured by Dean.
@danukenator123 ya i did
You didn't even have time to finish the video...
yay first view
