Fabrizio Chiruzzi: wow super hot warm up!!!

Fabrizio Chiruzzi just posted some clips from a super warm up session, lots of great picking on this one!

cazzeggiando - just practice

Instrumental industrial shred metal, aka known as cybershred, a powerful mixing of heavy thrash metal melt with industrial electronic influences, and tons and tons of smoking shred. Awakening represents a turn over to heavy metal. Take bands like Ministry, Rammstein, Kovenant, Shotgun Messiah and mix'em with a guitar phrasing influenced by guru axeplayers like Micheal Angelo, Michael Romeo, Greg Howe, George Bellas and hundreds more. Revangel starts a different style in FC carrer, probably too different to be entitled under the mark of FC. This new side project will continue with new upcoming releases. Check it out.

Tom Hess: How To Get Started Teaching Guitar - 5 Things You Need to Know and Do

How To Get Started Teaching Guitar - 5 Things You Need to Know and Do
by Tom Hess
If you want to teach guitar, then it's critically important to know what the most important steps are to becoming the best teacher you can be. Many people who have been teaching guitar for a long time don't know all 5 of the important things you are now going to learn about how to teaching guitar.
Like most people, when I started teaching guitar I also didn't know much about how to teach well. I thought, because I was a good guitar player, that I would be able to teach well. That was false. In my first 10 years of teaching I had taught thousands of guitar lessons and thought I was really good. Fact is, like most guitar teachers, I was only mediocre. Over the next 10 years of my teaching, I finally began to learn the most effective ways to consistently help guitar students progress to very high skill levels in shorter periods of time.
Here are 5 things you should know and do when getting started teaching guitar.
1. The first (and most important) step in learning to teach guitar is to 'care' more about guitar students than any other guitar teacher in your area will. This alone makes a huge difference in the results that your students will get from you compared to what they could get from anyone else.
2. Great guitar teachers do not teach guitar... They teach 'people'. What is the difference? If you teach 'guitar', your approach is to think about the technical, musical and philosophical ways of showing someone how to play a guitar. Fact is, your students don't want to learn to play guitar. They want to learn 'how to feel' a certain way when they pick up a guitar and play (or try to play). They not only want to learn how to get these feelings in the future when they can play well, they want to also feel it right now. They want to love the way it 'feels' to enjoy the process of learning. When you really focus on that, then you begin to realize you are not teaching guitar, you are teaching people.
Teaching 'guitar' is more about explaining or demonstrating various aspects of guitar playing, music theory, etc. Teaching 'people' is all about 'solving problems', developing a specific strategic path to the specific goals they have, supporting them and keeping them motivated in the process of their development.
3. Surround yourself with other EXPERT guitar teachers. There are 2 common mistakes most guitar teachers make. Either they don't surround themselves with other guitar teachers at all, or 2. they surround themselves with other guitar teachers who are not true expert teachers who get big results for their students and have very successful guitar teaching businesses. Surround yourself with experienced expert guitar teachers who know how to 'successfully' handle the same situations that you might be struggling with.
4. Learn to balance patience and expectations. Everyone knows that to be a good guitar teacher one must have a lot of patience. What most don't know is how to balance patience with expectations. Your students' learning progress is heavily influenced not only by what you teach them, but on what you expect from them. If you fail to consistently communicate higher expectations for your students, most of them will progress slowly. You need to push them a little with realistic, but high expectations while at the same time being supportive and patient.
5.  Don't settle for being 'good enough'... Sadly, many guitar teachers think it is 'ok' to be 'good enough'. Do you want your doctor, accountant, or your auto mechanic to be 'good enough'? Or do you want these people to be the best they can be in order to serve you better? It's unethical to not be as good as you know you can be. I'm not suggesting that you need to have an advanced music degree from a university, nor that you need to be a great guitarist before you can begin teaching guitar. All guitar instructors have to start from 'somewhere', but once you get started teaching, you owe it to your current and future guitar students to constantly be learning how to become a better guitar teacher. Your students expect and deserve this from you... and you deserve it for yourself.

News: what happens if you spam video view count?

An Update On Our View Counts
Video view counts reflect the YouTube community's interests and the grassroots popularity of videos. We periodically make changes that allow us to display consistent view counts and accurately reflect a "real" view based on video consumption, video streaming and spam filtering. Unfortunately, a few people still try to artificially manipulate their video's view counts. Some people game third-party view counts as well. That can make things unfair for everyone.

Recently, we found spamming issues associated with the view counts on a small number of videos. The inflated view count number on these videos will be frozen until actual views catch up to the published, artificial, view count. Also, a few people have commented that their view counts are updating more slowly. Occasionally the speed with which views update changes -- sometimes it’s faster and sometimes it’s slower. But we are always working to make sure that the final view count numbers are an accurate reflection of the community's interest.

News: Goulding aluminium guitar sustains for ages!

It's no surprise that we would join forces with someone like Anthony Goulding, we are still trying to figure out whether he is an engineer who builds guitars, or a Luthier at heart that happens to be an engineer.

These dramatic eye-catching instruments are the end result by Anthony Goulding, who has combined his many years experience in precision engineering with a love of guitars to create this awesome all-aluminum axe.

Goulding's guitars are build to order custom tailored instruments, so you won't see them hanging in your local music shop. They're based around Gouldings signature body shape, but otherwise just about anything goes.

Any pickup and electronics configuration can be accommodated, as well as different colored anodized finishes, in addition to chrome- and gold-plating and the polished aluminum finish seen on

The guitar's body starts out as a 2-inch-thick billet of solid aluminium, which is then routed out from the rear. The neck is milled from a separate block of aluminum and attached to the body with four large bolts. The front can be ordered with a ‘German carve' effect around the edge of the body, but you can specify a flat top if you want.

For Hardware, tailpieces and pickup mounting rings you may choose Gouldings designs (gold-plated brass) or you could go traditional with a Bigsby or stoptail.
Standard Pickups on Goulding guitars are Magnetic Humbucking pickups; other options offered are L.R. Braggs piezo bridge which yields a wide range of sounds.

Goulding guitars are shockingly loud when played unplugged. Through an amp, a definite hollowbody resonance comes through but unlike a conventional hollowbody, the guitar is highly resistant to feedback.

Atanas Shishkov: 1 3 5 string tapping

Atanas Shishkov:
This lesson is connected with my previous one about the Pentatonics.
Here is a conception to play pentatonics using String skipping and tapping for interesting and smooth sound. These licks are based again on playing of all patterns over the neck. If you can see the last lesson you can find out the same patterns but here are used only 1-3-5 strings. All licks are played using 8th triplets and 16th notes plus 3 note-per-string conception.The specific is that the 3rd note of each string is tapped, so you can reach in the same time a fluid and clear sound of your licks. Of course, you can develop your own licks based on this concept.
I have played all exercises in a tune and the backing track is also available.

Enjoy with this lesson and stay in tune for more news soon!
Take care,
