--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Metal is back! Dimebag Darrell is a walking textbook of modern metal guitar techniques, liberally spraying bone-crushing power chords, dissonant intervals, tremolo arm insanity, and a shredding lead voice worthy of the masters. Now all metal guitarists can go behind the scenes with Dimebag and Pantera. Here, he teaches the patterns and techniques that have driven Pantera to become one of the most successful heavy metal bands in rock history. A must-have, this book will go down in metal history as a classic.

Thankfully, once again, Dimebag Darrell and Pantera were having none of that nonsense and quite literally screamed their undying allegiance to metal from sold-out stadium stages allover the world. "We've always said that we're proud to be a metal band and we always will," Dime affirms. "I grew up a heavy metal kid, listening to great metal bands, and that's what we've always dreamed of being. Metal isn't a haircut, it's an attitude, and I knowit's not real fashionable right now but weain't about to let anyone down-we ain't about to deny what we are just so we can sell more records. We play extreme music and we lovethe heavy shit so why would we do anything else than what we're best at'?! It kills me when I see other metal bands trying to pass themselves off as something else just because metal isn't in style at the moment. Well, brother, they can join the pack, 'cos we'regonna remain true to our roots while all that other shit keepstwisting around us. We'relike a steel rod and wewon't bend.We'rejust gonna get bigger, stronger and harder. We'rethe full-meal deal, man-we're all about kick-ass songs with lead vocals, lead guitar, over-the-top drumming, killer bass lines and a shitload of no-holds-barred heavy riffs you can bust a nut on! "It doesn't matter what the 'experts' say, this form of music will never go away," our subject continues, his eyes ablaze with passion and sincerity. "Trends can come and go 'cos we'regonna keep playing right through them. To me, a trend is kinda like a zit, except peoplethink trends are cool-they both grow and grow and then finally, POP! They burst and go back to their normal size. So, it don't matter how many zits spring up around us 'cos we knowthey ain't gonna be around forever and we'll still be there whenthey're gone.This band is like a mole-a bad-assed, nasty mole-and weain't even halfway to wherewe're going!" Judging by the vast legions of fans that flock to Pantera concerts and the impressive array of platinum and gold disks that adorn the walls of Dimebag's pad, Camp Strapped, the band's unbending metal stance has clearly paid off. What is more, Pantera is clearly nowherenear being done. "We'rejust starting to get real good at what we do!" Dime laughs. "We'refour guys who are like family-we're in love with what wedo and we'reon fire whenwe're touring, man. Weain't nevergonna stop; we'rethe Rolling Stones of the heavy shit! And we'll never, ever change; there's no reason to-I can't see how it could ever change and that's the god's honest truth," Amen! Long live the "bad-assed, nasty mole."

 

Credit Where Credit Is Due

Not surprisingly, the world's guitar press was quick to notice the impact Dime was having on young players, and he's deservedly adorned countless covers as a result. Of all the praise that has beenheaped on our subject by such publications, the most succinct of all appeared in the February 1997 issue of Guitar World in which the following passage appeared: Pantera's "King Dime" is the premier metal guitarist of the Nineties. In an age when most headbangers have packed up their gig bags and moved to greener, grungier pastures, Darrell continues to dish out some of the decade's most brutal and uncompromising thrash. By combining the virtuosity of Edward Van Halen with the hyperactive rhythmic drive of a glue-sniffin' punk guitarist, Darrell has created a style that appeals to cfassic rockers, fans of death metal and industrial afficionados as well.

 

Part II: How?

In 1993, Guitar World, the biggest-selling guitar magazine on the planet, decided to see if they could get three of the hottest lead players on the planet to pen some columns for 'em. Their first two choices were no-brainers-Kirk Hammett and Eric Johnson, both firmly established as giants amongst the six-string elite. Finding the third guy, however,was gonna be a little less obvious. Guitar Worlds editor, Brad Tolinski, didn't want to take the easy route and give it to someone who was already firmly established as a household name,y'see. Instead he wanted to take a risk and give it to a relative unknown-a player whose star was on the rise but wasn't clearly visible for all to see yet. In short, it was a crapshoot. Brad called me and asked me if I had any thoughts on the matter. In my mind there was no doubt who should get the gig, and so my answer was instant: "Dime's your man," I blurted. ''I'd bet my house on it-if only I had one!" Brad and his crack editorial staff conferred and agreed. Furthermore, they offered me the task of beingthe writer who worked with Dime on his column - should he decide to accept this daunting mission. Thankfully he did and in the April 1993 issue Guitar World, Dime's column trade its auspicious debut. Its title ? enough, it was ...
