I don't think many people could argue that Dimebag Darrell was one of the greatest guitarists of all time.  The Pantera and Damageplan axeman could play anything, and influenced the way metal guitar is played today.  Well, if you ever wanted to shred like Dimebag, here's a cool way to do that with this new app for iPad created by the UK's Total Guitar magazine.

The app teaches you to play in the style of Dimebag with a combination of video lessons, tab and backing tracks covering the most important rhythm and lead techniques.

You also get recommended amp and pedal settings, so you can get Dime's amazing and brutal tone.  Plus, there is a buyer's guide full of recommended gear no matter what how empty your wallet might be.  There's more.  As a bonus, you can get classic album reviews and biographical information, that tell the story behind the guitar god and the music.

You can buy the app for your iPad in the iTunes store for about $1.49.

Here's a video that gives you a taste of what you can expect with this app.
