Dimitar Nalbantov: demos the AMT ELECTRONICS B1 Legend

Dimitar Nalbantov:
The B1 Legend Amp Series pedal, superior high gain quality distortion, as found in the Bogner Sharp Channel Amplifier*. The sound of the AMT B1 is monstrous in tone, aggression, and provides massive amounts of gain. Thunderous lows, screaming highs, and scoopable mids leave you with unbeatable heavy distortion sounds. This one could be the "kick" your guitar rig has been needing.


Derek Sivers: former owner of CD Baby giving back to music

Why I gave away my company to charity

When I decided to sell my company in 2008, I already had enough.
I live simply. I hate waste and excess. I have a good apartment, a good laptop, and a few other basics. But the less I own, the happier I am. The lack of possessions gives me the priceless freedom to live anywhere anytime.  Full Details

Jeff McClelland: Brett Garsed DiMarzio shred this III - another super acoustic solo

Jeff McClelland:
This is my spin on the "Shred This III: Brett Garsed and DiMarzio" competition. I thought that I'd approach this a bit differently and use the acoustic rather than an electric. I'm reasonably pleased with the result. I'm used to recording my solos in chunks rather than in one continuous take, so this was a very good exercise for me.

I hope that you enjoy! Please comment and let me know what you think.
