About the Instructor

Alexi Laiho

Alexi is the founding member and lead guitarist of the Metal band “CHILDREN OF BODOM,” he
has his own Signature Model ESP guitar, made Guitar World’s list of the top 100 metal guitarist
of all time in 2004 and appeared on the cover of Guitar World in 2005 with Steve Vai and Zakk
Wylde.
Originating from the town of Espoo, in Finland, Alexi began his musical training at an early age
by learning the Violin. However, influenced by the music his sister listened to (heavy metal music) bands such as W.A.S.P., Poison and Stone; he ended up dropping the classical instrument
at the age of 11, in favor of guitars. A taped live performance of Steve Vai’s song “For the Love of
God” (from the Passion and Warfare album) was especially influential in Alexi’s decision to become a guitarist. He then began taking lessons at the Finnish Pop & Jazz Conservatory in order
to study the instrument. At the conservatory he also studied the pianos. The development of his
playing style was heavily influenced by Stone’s Roope Latvala (who many years later became
his band mate in Sinergy and then in Children of Bodom). His vocal influences came mostly from
Phil Anselmo of Pantera and Mille Petrozza of Kreator.
He has dedicated his life to creating music and developing his technique. Alexi is known for his
incredible six string momentum and melodic speed along with stern vocal strength.

Reading Tablature
Tablature (or tab) is a number system for reading notes on the neck of a guitar. It does not require you to have knowledge of standard music notation. This system was designed specifically
for the guitar. Most music for guitar is available in tab. Tablature is a crucial and essential part of
playing guitar.
The six lines of the tablature staff represent each of the six strings. The top line is the thinnest
(highest pitched) string. The bottom line is the thickest (lowest pitched) string. The lines in between are the 2nd through 5th strings. The numbers placed directly on these lines show you the
fret number to play the note. At the bottom, underneath the staff, is a series of numbers. These
numbers show you which left hand fingers you should use to fret the notes.
