Clinics are a great opportunity for experienced and aspiring musicians to get up close and personal with some of the shredders at the top of the game. Megadeth bassist David Ellefson has participated in an increasing number of them recently and just announced a half a dozen more for October.

Ellefson will be joined by Megadeth lead guitarist Chris Broderick. His work in Nevermore and Jag Panzer had endeared him to shred-heads the world over even before he took over the spot alongside Megadeth leader Dave Mustaine previously held by guitar greats like Chris Poland and Marty Friedman.

Both Mega-Men have signature models through Jackson Guitars, which they are sure to be showing off during these appearances as they provide demonstrations, moderate group discussions and take questions.

Ellefson and Broderick taped a video message announcing the clinics while on the set of the video for 'Public Enemy No. 1,' the first single from the band's upcoming album, 'TH1RT3EN.' Check it out below the following list of clinic dates.
