Former Megadeth guitarist Marty Friedman has recorded a series of 65 guitar loops that can be used by producers, disc jockeys and other artists for various projects.

Friedman's loops, which range from high-gain leads and rhythm parts to clean-tone melodies influenced by Japanese and Middle Eastern scales, are available now as a loop library called Exotic Guitar.

The library includes:

• 24 Lead Guitar Loops
• 11 Rhythm Guitar Loops
• 10 Clean Tone Guitar Loops
• 20 Construction Guitar Loops

An audio sample (which you can check out here and in the video below) features Friedman’s guitar over a metal and dubstep drums, hinting at some unique remix possibilities.

The 65 patterns (of various lengths) were recorded and looped at 140 bpm. The Exotic Guitar loop pack costs $24.99 and is available as mp3 or WAV files. For more information, head here.
