Milan Polak: at 300 bpm

Milan Polak says:
This song is the opener of my album "Guitar Odyssey" (Lion Music). The video was a first take at bpm 300. The tune is actually meant to be funny, that's why it has this silly Mickey Mouse voice at the beginning and a Bavarian folks music part.

Paul Gilbert: vip lessons book updated

News:
19-05-2009:
Jenn has been busy again, more features more phots 77Mb of Paul Gilbert goodness.

This is the “guitar instruction manual / Racer X board project #1″.



For those of you who might not be familiar with me or this project: At the beginning of the 2008 Euro tour, it was announced that Paul would have these VIP lessons, and that it was OK to bring an audio recorder. I thought “it would be cool if I compiled these in to some sort of guitar lesson book, if I could get some recordings. I bet I’d learn a lot.” So, all that transpired. This project took about 50 hours to complete, over the course of almost 6 months.
