DAATH’S EMIL WERSTLER WILL SCHOOL YOUR ASS IN GUITAR. NO, SERIOUSLY, HE WANTS TO SCHOOL YOU.

I am, without a doubt, the world’s shittiest guitar player. I can probably play you the worst renditions you’ve ever heard of Nirvana’s “Come As You Are” and Chimaira’s “Pure Hatred,” and if I concentrate really, really hard, I think I can pretty much butcher Slash’s guitar solo from “November Rain.” And that’s about it.

I blame lack of motivation to practice, my love of writing which always outweighed my like of guitar of playing, and the fact that my guitar teacher was a total square. If my guitar had been, say, a member of a totally awesome metal band like Dååth, I might have been much, much more inclined to learn my shit.

And, hey, look at that! Dååth’s Emil Werstler is now indeed offering guitar lessons:

“I have been teaching in the Southeast for years, and I actually enjoy the exchange of information. There are a lot of misconceptions about the art of guitar playing, and I’m totally into the idea of exposing the facts while nerding out nation wide.

“I will be offering anything from how to play Dååth songs to soloing strategies or anything else a serious guitar player would want to know.”

As you can see from the video above (or any given Dååth album), Werstler is an incredible guitar player and this is a really, really awesome opportunity. You can head over to Dååth’s MySpace page to see when the band will be in or near your town, or just e-mail Emil at emillessons AT gmail DOT com.

And don’t forget that Dååth’s excellent new album, The Concealers, hits stores a week from tomorrow, 4/21. I’ll be posting a review sometime real soon.
