Getting older is a funny thing. “You just wait and see” must be on an endless subconscious loop in the minds of my parent’s generation. The younger you are, the more you think you know, and the more the older generation can’t wait for you to grow up a little bit and see the expression on your face when you finally “get it” and realize you don’t know everything.
But the burden isn’t just on the young guys. Quite often the older folks don’t give the younger guys enough credit. They just assume they know nothing, are unmotivated, and will never learn.
I am certainly, in some respects, a part of both groups. Being just a few weeks north of my 39th birthday I seem to straddle the line of being a grown-up with a wife and mortgage, and yet also being a kid who is still trying to figure out what to do when I grow up. full post
SANYO has developed Pedal Juice to meet the needs of both professional and entry-level musicians. One Pedal Juice battery can provide up to 50 hours of continuous, stable power for a single analog pedal or up to 20 hours of continuous power to three digital pedals. Because the eneloop 9V rechargeable lithium-ion battery eliminates the need for AC power, the output voltage is more stable for longer periods of time without the possibility of AC ground looping noise. The battery can be recharged hundreds of times, thereby eliminating the waste and inconvenience of disposable 9V alkaline batteries. With two DC outputs, Pedal Juice can power multiple devices including pedals, multi-effect units, and portable recorders. Pedal Juice provides portable battery power to a single pedal or can be used to power several pedals at the same time.
“Getting power to effects pedals has never been easier,” says Tom Van Voy, Vice President and General Manager of the Consumer Products Group for SANYO North America. “Pedal Juice will power multiple effects pedals with the simple press of a button, eliminating the need to unplug pedals from traditional power sources,” said Van Voy. “With the portable power Pedal Juice offers, musicians can perform without an AC power outlet.”
SANYO Pedal Juice was developed using feedback from musicians about what they need in portable power devices. Musicians can conveniently power Pedal Juice and connected devices with a flip of the on-off switch. In addition, a 3-stage visible LED power indicator displays the remaining power level with green, orange, and red LED lights for musicians to see at a glance. Pedal Juice is also water and shock resistant to JIS IPX3 compliance level.
SANYO originally debuted new products for the music industry at the Winter NAMM Show in January. With the introduction of Pedal Juice, SANYO continues to support the “eneloop lifestyle” valuing the reusing and recycling of resources. SANYO will continue to develop and offer products suited for musicians, such as its digital sound recorders and additional energy solutions.

Once again - Sloth blew me away! In this collab, we slowed it down a bit.
Here's our last collab, and our first one at that!
Check out Sloth's channel!
Sorry that it took so long to get a take going, Sloth. I put things off too much. :P
I entitled this track "Never ending wave of change" ...refering to how I see music...
I used various techniques on it, some sweeping, bends, tapping, slides, riffing. It's quite melodic but you'll find a couple of intricate solos along the way, or at least I think so, :)
I hope you support me to win this competition, favorite this video, and give it thumbs up!
I really apreciate it!, see you soon! http://www.guitaridol.tv/video/118
Beyond the Dark Horizon: Do you plan to release a follow-up to your solo album?
Jeff Loomis: Yes I do. I actually signed on for 2 more records and I’m working on the new one right now. There’s still no title yet but I’m working on the music and hoping for a mid-winter release next year. full interview
Many of my unique or unusual guitar techniques have resulted from attempting to play a particular passage using a conventional approach, and then discovering it didn’t give me the sound I was after. Forced to find another way to execute the passage, I’d stumble across a new idea that I could develop and incorporate into my playing.
Here’s an example: It’s a challenge to disguise or avoid a subtle triplet feel when performing straight, non-sequenced legato lines using three-note-per-string shapes, especially at high speed. We have to deal with two primary issues when playing fast linear lines using a conventional legato technique. First, it’s hard to maintain the same volume and tone between picked notes and those that are articulated by hammer-ons or pull-offs. Second, it’s tough to avoid the slight rhythmic inconsistencies that often occur when you switch from one string to the next. Full article with tab
A little clip of some of Jason's friends, Justin Defreece and Terry Rasor playing after his birthday party on his custom Paradise signature guitar. Justin goes off a little and shares a beautiful demonstation for us. Justin is living proof that technical guitar players in Portland, OR do exist despite the fact that I have been unsuccessful in locating them prior to this night haha! I think I am probably the ONLY woman who asks the staff at Guitar Center where I can find them! Special thanks to Terry for introducing me to Jason....What a gift. :)
