The competition is closed, but you can still jam on that backing track and post your video, as is the case with this composite video posted by Piotr Wójcicki http://www.myspace.com/piotrwjcicki. Meantime we're still working on those short lists and cracking through the videos to get down to the final winners!

News: where are all the girl guitar heroes?

I'm continuing my search for the best female guitar players... There are a number already featured on Truth In Shredding, but there has to be more!!!... so don't be shy... get your videos posted on youtube and get noticed.  In the meantime, my good buddy JP over at StratOBlogster.com keeps a list of the latest and greatest female players.

Paul Gilbert: Racer X shrapnel records CD's to be remastered and re-released

Jenn from metalichicka says:
King Records (Japan) has decided to re-release the 20 ‘debut’ albums from Shrapnel. The street / on-sale date is Nov. 10, 2010. The audio will (tenatively) be re-mastered. The liner notes or each album will be re-written and the re-issues will come in limited edition paper (cardboard) sleeves. This re-release will be happening in Japan – so these will be “domestic releases”. Hopefully King Records will be able to distribute throughout Japan – which means the titles will be available at the places where people who live outside of Japan shop: CDJapan, Amazon JP, Tower Records, HMV Online, etc. Hopefully collectors all over the world can access this material. Check out metalichika for the full details
