Cracking the Code: The Series

The original Cracking the Code series is a nostalgic trip through ’80s rock history, and a technical adventure culminating in the discovery of pickslanting. It’s filled with original animation and soundtrack, and is basically a very long feature film — twelve narrative episodes, over 3 hours total. Along the way, we take a both detailed and entertaining look at the techniques of legendary players like Yngwie, Eric Johnson, Michael Angelo Batio, and more.
