Kevin Peters: Milan's TRex monster pedal competition

Ha yes... just going through those competition videos... first up though is Kevin Peters two handed tour de force... which I missed! This is going to be super tough to get a winner. Milan and I are discussing the timing to get all these videos down to the winner... Looks like it's going to take longer than I had originally anticipated with so many cool entries... I'll post something a little later once we've had a chance to discuss the timings.

Roger Gardiner: the block the chip was made from

Jack Gardiner is a chip off the old block... that is Roger Gardiner. I had the good fortune to meet both of them at guitar idol last year...

Jack Gardiner says:
My dad said he wasn't happy with this but i thought i'd put it up anyway so you guys can see this monster of a bass and the man that inspired me to pick up an instrument in the first place! :)

Todd Duane: help me, I'm sick...

Todd Duane says:
Hi guys! I am sick today so be easy on me. What is cool about this amp is that it is (((Stereo))) so I can use 2 diff ohm cabs! So in this vid I am using Stereo L w/ the Mesa 4x12 (65's and V30's "X") and a Stereo R w/ a '69 Basketweave w/ the G12 30's. An Eventide Eclipse is in the stereo loop. Let me know how the tone compares to the amp combinations but don't rate me low because something else is better! ... leave a text comment. :)
thanks!

Joe Satriani: hendrix tribute tour dates

Joe Satriani:
"It's hard to believe CHICKENFOOT's 2009 is coming to a close. The gig in Vegas was fantastic, and a great way to end the touring year. Cheers to all our fans for making every show not only possible, but memorable and fun. And, I want to thank all my fans at Satriani.com and around the world for cutting me some slack and letting be be in a rock band for a while. Your patience with me is amazing, and not for a second do I ever forget it.

I wish I could share the Chickenfoot Gold Record award hanging on my wall with all of you. They should send one to everyone who bought the album! That would cost about a million smackers, but, I might be able to get a government grant for it. I'll work on that.

Looking ahead we have a NAMM show in January with a cool new 24 fret JS guitar to unveil, and a February 2nd release of Joe Satriani, I Just Wanna Rock, Live in Paris DVD, The Jimi Hendrix Tribute Tour in March, and some Chickenfoot shows in the spring and summer. It's gonna be a great year!"

Mattias IA Eklundh: christmas special


Land of the Freaks: The Christmas Special

The rain is pouring down outside as I sit in the car with a sleeping Gabriel next to me. Mrs. Eklundh is at the veterinarian getting rid of a few stitches on Maya the dog after recent surgery. Just got back from a fabulous, fabulous Finnish tour that floored us all. We couldn’t believe the massive response at each and every gig. Helsinki was even sold-out on a Tuesday night (Kuopio might have been so as well). Stunning Freak Neighbors: you kick so much ass it hurts! We can’t wait to come back! Festivals and more concerts are being planned for 2010 by our great Finnish promoter Timo and Nem Booking. Thanks a bunch! Thanks a bunch!

Raphael Fraser: bluer than a blue thing

Please rate/subscribe/friend/favourite/comment/ whatever ;-) and visit me at http://www.tsuken.co.nz

This is the fifth of the ten videos I'm doing forhttp://www.ultimatebluesbackingtracks... This is over a backing track called Rollin' Blues, and I just decided to stop thinking quite so much, and go back 20-odd years to when I played more pentatonic. 8) I couldn't seem to help myself playing fast and sloppy towards the end, but it was all good fun 8)

I used my customised Ibanez s470, into my AMT Electronics Fatal Tube, direct into my iMac, with LAConvolver providing a cabinet sim.

Enjoy. 8)

Rob Chappers: Line 6 M9 demo!

Rob Chappers allowed us to see and assist him in the making of this video at our recent visit to the mansion of the Monkeylord [read the details] and share the goodness of this musical stomp box. I took the more managerial role... standing around doing nothing and passing on meaningless managerial tips, while the the "Sensei" Rob Chappers directed Shred Medium, Yoda style, in his Star Wars style flybys of the underlying Line 6 M9 Space ship! I spy Shred Mediums fingers at 3:41! Enjoy!

Line 6 M9 demo is now up on Sonic State/Amped \m/
