Mark Tremonti Delivers ‘You Waste Your Time’ Guitar Lesson in New Video

Mark Tremonti
Mary Ouellette,

Creed and Alter Bridge guitarist Mark Tremonti recently branched out on his own releasing his first solo disc ‘All I Was’ on July 17. In addition to playing guitar, Tremonti also covers vocal duties on the disc, showing off his full arsenal of musical weapons.

For fans that ever dreamed of taking guitar lessons with Mark Tremonti, now is your chance. As the first single ‘You Waste Your Time’ is winning over rock fans, Tremonti is now taking on the role of a teacher in a new instructional video. The clip shows Tremonti breaking down the guitar parts of ‘You Waste Your Time’ note by note, meticulously instructing guitar players how to play the song.

While probably not for beginners, Tremonti makes his intricate solos look easy. ‘You Waste Your Time’ is just a high energy fun song,’ says Tremonti as the clip kicks off. “I’m going to show you the ‘You Waste Your Time’ solo, break it down into sections, do it fast, do it then again slow for you, and then break it down.” Just like that, class is in session. By the end of the seven minute clip guitarists are schooled on the ins and outs of the song and fully prepared to take it on.

Tremonti are currently in the planning phase of a fall tour, for all the details visit the official website.

Tremonti will also be the guest on an upcoming episode of the U.S. nationally syndicated radio show Rockline with host Bob Coburn. Fans can call to speak with Tremonti at 1-800-344-ROCK (7625) when the show airs on Monday, Sept. 17 at 11:30 PM EST.
