Duel of the Titans - Steve Vai and Paul Gilbert
This is just a quick glance! The full demonstration video is coming soon.
Here i just wanted to show off the versatility of this beautiful instrument.
You may recognise Old School by Rob Marcello, The Pretender by Marco Sfogli, and elements of Guthrie Govan's Larry Carlton Jam Track. The first example is improvised over the Metalcore backing track.
I literally got the guitar yesterday, and thought I have to make a quick video!
I'll be making a full demonstration video through the various specs in the near future!

2009 UK Air Guitar Championships
Greetings to all interested in the amps that go to 11, spandex, big mirrors and loud rock music... Welcome to our world
What you need to know
The contestants are judged by the audience. History has told us that sweet moves and outrageous costume is what you need to be a winner.Each contestant gets to choose a track of their own for round one. If they make it to the second round then they will air duel against another. The final round will have the 3 best contestants of the night in an air off to the death... And then we will have the 2009 Champion!The 2009 UK Air Guitar Championship Final is near, the current UK Air Guitar champion Cozza is ready for his first night as host and with a capacity crowd expected its going to be mayhem...
UK Air Guitar News
UK final day with Phillip and Holly27th Sept 2009The day of the UK Air Guitar Championships final is only days away, we have 18 finalists at present and we are leaving 2 entry places for whoever fancies their chances on night, just the way that Cozza did back in 2006. On final day, Cozza will be taking 2 of this years contestants on to the ITV This Morning show with Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby, to give all a lesson in the fine art. Last years runner up Stephen 'Twanga Joe' Gagola and the current Irish champion Declan Gillick 'Deku-Chan', will also be appearing and rumour has it that they will take on David 'The Hoff' Hasselhoff in air-a-long in the studio on the day. Then the 3 of them will have to leg it to Brighton to warm up for the final. We are all praying to see Gordon the Gofer. We will smash world record..29th July 2009This is the year of record breaking. In association with the Royal Air Forces Association, we will be attempting to break the current world record for the most amount of people air guitaring at the same time at a staged event. The current Guiness world record is held by 'Be your best rock challenge' who managed 1261 people rocking to the Foo Fighters Pretender at sheffield arena on July 11th this year. We will be attempting to get nearly 3000 people invloved at Wolverhampton race course on Sat 3rd of October to raise money and awareness for RAFA. For more details Click HereThe Future of UK Air Guitar..21st July 2009Since 2006 Colin 'Cozza' Fulker has been the reigning champion with 3 consecutive wins, and to this day is the UK Air Guitar Champion. The competition was thrown into disrepute as it was deemed as unfair that Cozza should be allowed to take part furthermore as no-one else gets a chance because of the fingerlicking skills. So, we have decided to hand the true Air Guitar champion the ultimate prize, which is the rights to the competition, to run and host forever! In return a vow of air guitar celibacy has been taken to ensure a brand new 2009 champion..
Win a Hagstrom guitar and Nitro snowboard!
Yep, you read it correctly: this issue TG’s giving away a guitar and a snowboard. Extreme sports and guitar music have always been heavily linked, especially if you’re a guitarist who is also a member of the Nitro International Snowboarding Team...
That’ll be Jonas Hagstrom, then. “Even though I’ve got a hectic schedule with the snowboarding,” Jonas told Hagstrom, “I try to put as much time into my playing as possible.”
With the snowboarding season approaching, the Swedish-born snowboarder/twanger has teamed up with snowboard manufacturer Nitro and his guitar-building namesake to produce a signature package, comprising a Hagstrom-branded Nitro Ultra Volume snowboard and Hagstrom Ultra Swede.
The guitar has Hagstrom’s extra-thin Ultralux neck, resinator fretboard and Custom 58 humbuckers. At Jonas’ request, the incomplete board graphic is continued on the body of the guitar, with each component completing the full design.
Thanks to the generous folk at Hagstrom UK (www.hagstrom-guitars.co.uk), we’re offering one lucky reader the chance to bag the combo.

The ML1 has landed!!!
According to Michael Angelo "The fastest guitar I ever played in my life was on Shred Boot Camp." I can vouch for the fact that he was clearly picking 19.5 notes per second and Dave Martone was finger tapping 21 NPS! Chris Ranier clocked in somewhere around the same speeds! Ya gotta hear this to believe it!
Shred Boot Camp has finally arrived! The new comic book/CD package by Tobias Hurwitz and Jesse Smolover. It’s the first comic book that teaches shred guitar while you enjoy an action packed story and jam out to some awesome metal, all at once! Proudly featuring the fastest and wildest shredding of: Michael Angelo Batio! Dave Martone! Tobias Hurwitz! Glenn Riley! Kurt bell! & Chris Ranier! Hear guitars played at supersonic speeds up to 21 notes per second! Think Guitar Hero meets Enter the Dragon! Many of the characters are based on real rockers from the Baltimore scene, such as rock god - Billyjack Mast of Miseuphoria, Hunter of The Side Affects, Brent Jones of The Heaviness of the Load, and the awesome Metal Kid!
