MINNEAPOLIS, MN - Paul Allender, lead guitarist for acclaimed British heavy metal act, Cradle of Filth, has announced via his Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/vomitoriumltd the start of his one on one online guitar lessons over Skype. Fans can write to Allender at: paul@winterlandstudios.com for further details. "After being a professional player for almost 20 years, I decided I wanted to start teaching guitar to fans who wanted to learn," said Allender. "The best way I could think was to teach over Skype. My lessons have been up and running for a month now and are going very well. Lessons have also evolved past guitar; I teach songwriting and arranging and how to use Pro Tools as well as advice for anyone who wants to get ahead in the industry." Cradle of Filth is currently gearing up for a massive headlining February/March North American tour with The Faceless, Decapitated and The Agonist.
