News: the fisherman scale and more really outside licks

You should also try out the Beaufort Scale, the Richter scale, Logarithmic scale and particularly sensitive to guitarists, the pay scale...

 You know those scenes in movies where they cut to the actor's hands and he can suddenly shred? More often than not, those are this guy's hands -- and now you can learn directly from the man behind the magic.

Will Maier from The Whatevs (http://www.myspace.com/thewhatevs) is the special guest host / instructor today on this free video excerpt from ShredTips.edu. He appears in his first ever wide-shot and demonstrates a few "conceptual" licks that are unlike anything C.C. DeVille could play (watch out for that killer vibrato intonation) -- showing the student how to find his own voice on the guitar and make it his own. You'd think it can't get any better than that "exotic" scale... but from there, Will launches straight into teaching you How To Play A Song In 30 Seconds, blowing your mind forever.

It was announced last week that Michael Bay flew Will in as a consultant for his upcoming remake of Crossroads, in which Megan Fox teams up with herself to play a pair of renegade, lesbian, train-robbing demolition experts... and in this video, you'll see why.

Play along, if you can!

Will also played the role of Zac Efron's hands in the upcoming feature called The Sailor's Predicament (http://www.titledsketchproject.com), written and directed by Dan Oster. This talented young artist can be contacted through William Morris Agency (http://www.willmaier.net).

Ronnie James Dio: the final concert

This is video from Ronnie James Dio's final concert ever fronting "Heaven & Hell" (aka the Dio version of Black Sabbath). It was in Atlantic City, NJ on August 29, 2009 - the final date of the "The Devil You Know" tour. I had two friends travel there in my name and filmed some footage, mostly of the interview type. However, my friends were granted permission to film one song, that being the first one, "The Mob Rules". What we didn't realize at the time was that this clip ended up being the final time that Ronnie ever took the stage for a concert ever.

Those of us at black-sabbath.com are glad to finally be able to bring this video to you. Thanks to Gloria Butler, Wendy Dio, & Ralph Baker for allowing me permission to use this online. A huge thanks to Damian for actually going there and filming this stuff.

I hope you enjoy this footage from Ronnie's final concert. The band did not professionally film this concert, so other than a few short clips from people's iPhones and whatnot, this is the only video clip that you'll see from Ronnie's final concert.

Spanning from 1981 through 1999 and encompassing extremely rare footage of Yngwie's early years in Sweden, this video displays the infancy of Yngwie's prodigious skills well prior to his first worldwide album and travels through Yngwie's masterful career, including his masterful performances from his first solo albums, 'Rising Force', 'Marching Out', and 'Trilogy'.

Charles Shaughnessy: port city cab gets a spanking and a little tay zonder

OK, I extended the truth a little... no Tay Zonder... and I was a little lonely as you guys don't visit anymore...

Seriously, Charlie Shaughnessy is just spanking the hell out of his guitar, just for the fun of it... although no strings were hurt in the making of this video.

Charlie Shaughnessy - Industrial Rock Improv

Charlie Shaughnessy:
Playing around with this truly amazing sounding cab!

Sound is just from a camera mic, so not amazing...

This guitar sounds great, this amp sounds great, this cab sounds amazingly great!

I run through three of the four channels on the amp, think I start off on the lead channel, then play the rhythm channel for awhile, then a mixture of both of and on and eventually a short amount of clean channel playing at the end.

Niko Tsonev: Samurai Guitarisuto

Niko Tsonev:
Well this is the beginning of "Samurai Guitarisuto", the Japanese cartoon-inspired all out shred tune from the Black Feather album (2008).

On the original recording the second verse was demolished by the one and only Mr Fastfinger, that got me fuming and we had to duel it out till the end.
So check it out.

This is the Suhr guitar through a Dime Wah, Xotic BB Preamp into the Brunetti 059 head (Crunch channel, Mellow on, no cab, using the in-built speaker dummy load). Hope you enjoyed it
