KILLER TECHNIQUE: ELECTRIC GUITAR book by Corey Christiansen and Vitali Tkachenka is comprehensive method for developing great guitar technique.

This "Killer Technique: Electric Guitar" book provides concepts and daily routines to help players get more control over their instrument by improving their technique and avoiding injury.

The exercises in this book are not written in standard notation or tab. The patterns that make up the exercises are written with string numbers, fret numbers and/or a fretboard diagram. This will allow guitarists, regardless of reading abilities, of all styles and all levels, to use the exercises.

 Vitali T proud to be

 WGS speakes featured artist

 (Paducah, KY, USA)


 "I never been 100% satisfied with my guitar tone and tried many different ways to reach perfection (from changing guitar electronic to changing whole rig), but WGS British Lead and Retro 30 did the magic! They fits perfect with setup that I already like and add beauty that was missed! Thanks WGS!" 

We glad to announce that now Vitali join CARVIN Guitars, Amplifiers and Pro Audio  (San Diego, CA, USA). And Vitali's video review of his new Vintage 16 (VT16) amplifier head is featured on CARVIN's web-site.    


"VT16 sounded reach, full and superior clean with jazz guitars, but with strat and rock guitars it easily cut through mix without losing natural warmth and dynamic response! And what is very important to me - VT16 can deal with any FX I've tried on it!"


 Huge thanks to CARVIN company and personally to Steve Schisler!
