This one's a bit different from what i usually do i suppose. I wanted to go for a more melodic approach but demonstrate some use of technique. I don't know whether it works but ahh well :) I enjoy improvising over this kind of backing!! I hope you guys like this! I wrote this with the image of someone close to me in mind. I hope it portrays this! Thanks again guys. Comments/subscribers/ratings are much appreciated!!
Very tasteful Jack, great to see original compositions!

My name is Bill Ruppert and I thought this would be of interest to your viewers.
I have developed a video series for the effect pedal company Electro-Harmonix called "Effectology."
Every two weeks I present a new video on how to produce "impossible" sounds using just a regular guitar and EHX effect pedals.
This week I recreate the synthesizer classic "Autobahn" by the band Kraftwerk.
All sounds were created using just a regular guitar and effect pedals! No keyboards, samplers or midi pickups were used.
Nine examples of what is possible
The "How To" info and settings are here:
Thank you for your help. I think this would be fun for your viewers to see.

Hi friends! This is my entry for the "Shred This" competition held by Rick Graham, Tom Quayle and Laurie Monk (thanks so much for the organization guys, you're making all youtube guitarists communicate and unite as one)!
This video has some great new stuff from me:
1) New HD cam *which is defunct so I recorded at the 2nd best resolution cause it was messing badly*, probably not so great video quality for HD but hey, it's my first time here
2) First video with the sound of my Mesa Boogie properly recorded with a decent mic (channel 2 was used, big challenge for me to play with a mid-gain sound) and lastly
3) First *home* video that I am playing standing u! lol xD
Also some post-production was done to polish the track with some effects and an intro!
Anyway, the backing track proved really really inspiring and at least I had a great time playing over it, let's hope you'll have equally great time watching it :)
Peace and good luck to all my co-competants!
