A seven-minute video clip in which ALTER BRIDGE and CREED guitarist Mark Tremonti teaches you how to play the solo in the track “You Waste Your Time” from his debut solo album, “All I Was”, can be seen below.
“All I Was” sold more than 12,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 29 on The Billboard 200 chart. The CD was released on July 17 via Fret 12 Records, a company Mark started with his brother, Daniel Tremonti, and Tom Stanley.
With two bands and a solo career, The Pulse Of Radio asked Tremonti how he knows which project the songs he writes are best suited for. “I’ve just gotten this filter, this intuition that tells me what songs go to which band, and with my solo stuff, the rhythm section is so different from the other bands, I think it really stands apart,” he said. “I think it’s a little more aggressive than both the other bands, but you just have to hear it, I guess.”
His solo band, also billed TREMONTI, features ALTER BRIDGE and CREED bassist Brian Marshall in the lineup along with guitarist Eric Friedman and drummer Garrett Whitlock.
