Brian Larkin: Brett Garsed DiMarzio shred this III - part two!!

Yeah... the second video in the trinity of Brian Larkin's Brett Garsed DiMarzio shred this III entries! This one is 100% composed! Some crazy licks in there!

Brian Larkin:
This is the 100% composed entry. I recorded it with my phone. The really difficult passages are a bit sloppy, but they were the best I could do today. I have a better audio track (you may notice Nuendo recording in the background), but I ran into a ton of indescribably video editing issues having to do with file format and conversion, among other things... No more videos with the phone.

I have a feeling 6 months from now I'll look back on this the same way I look at my first Strings on Fire entry... You win some, you lose some. I did my best.

Fretless tomorrow....

Always liked Claudio Mariola's soloing since his entry into the guitar idol competition a couple of years ago. So it's a joy to have a cool solo for this competition. I hope to meet Claudio at ZC3.

Adam Ironside: Just Like The Detective


This album is the accumulation of about two years of work. Written throughout 2009 and recorded in 2010 this album incorporates a lot of different styles and draws influence from a variety of different people and places.

All being well it is set for an October 2010 release.

I hope you enjoy Just Like The Detective.


This is dedicated to every good person that ever died. May they rest in peace.


Definitely the George Bellas influence in me coming out I think. This track has
changed quite a lot over the past few months and draws on a lot of my film composer influences as well as prog rock and metal bands that I have come to like over the years.


This draws from my Prog and 80's rock influences and is designed to depict the story of a new born bird leaving the nest for the first time, and not quite managing to fly.


This is quite a Satch inspired track. Just a simple love ballad really but with a few

twists and turns.


This was one of the first tracks I wrote for the album and most of you will have
already heard this on my youtube channel. Basically just some music I wrote after a nice day with someone special.


The title track. For some reason I just thought of a ballsy 'Bad Horsie' type feel, and this is what it became. Just an honest rocking!


Imagine a drag race in space? That would be awesome! Again this draws influence from some film and classical composers.


Not too unlike The Great Space Race, this one against draws influence from film composition and also from Alan Williamson's great Across Angry Skies record.


I wrote this track for Jason Becker and tried to capture some of his style and blend it with my own. Not sure it worked, but it created something I am quite proud of.


An inside joke and a good fun track to finish the album on :)

Lucas Zembrzuski: Brett Garsed DiMarzio shred this III full on improvisation!

I found a Lucas Zembrzuski video on my hard drive and posted it... Lucas Zembrzuski saw it and let me know that he was still around but not playing guitar so much of late. So I'm super pleased that this very talented player put together a video for the competition. Enjoy!

Lucas Zembrzuski:
pure improvisation for third edition of "Shred This" competition, added for fun, i dont play so much theese days... Sorry for sound quality, i still have technical problems

LZ shred-this-three Brett Garsed Edition

Do you have the inner chi, are you the one? Because you didn't come here to make the choice, you've already made it. You're here to try to understand why you made it. I thought you'd have figured that out by now.

Shred This III: Brett Garsed and DiMarzio competition ends 23:00 (GMT) Sunday, August 15th

Thorsten Praest: Brett Garsed DiMarzio shred this III Guitar Fight Club style!

Welcome to Shred This. The first rule of Shred This is: you do not talk about Shred This. The second rule of Shred This is: you DO NOT talk about Shred This! Third rule of Shred This: if someone yells "stop!", goes limp, or taps out, the fight is over. Fourth rule: only two guys to a fight. Fifth rule: one fight at a time, fellas. Sixth rule: the fights are bare knuckle. No shirt, no shoes, no weapons. Seventh rule: fights will go on as long as they have to. And the eighth and final rule: if this is your first time at Shred This, you have to fight.

Welcom to Thorsten Praest's entry for the "Shred this III" contest!

Luciano Grosso: Brett Garsed DiMarzio shred this III - 14 years old!

Hello! My name is Luciano, I have 14 years, this is my entry to Shred III this is the second shot and has a lot to improve.

It really is an improvisation, had an idea but when I started playing I liked how it turned out.

Used my Washburn lyon series, was my first electric guitar, not very good but just wanted to record this video with her.

The chroma key is not very good, tube a couple of problems so I am basically a green screen.

Hope you like it, comment subscribanse and enjoy!
