I thought some of you might enjoy rocking out with the tone I created for the AmpKit contest, and am happy to share it here with you all.
All amp, pedal and mic settings are exact, the only difference being that I removed the delay pedal (used only at the end of my solo) for compatibility with the free app.
Here then, is a patch I hope will bring you as much shred-'till-dawn enjoyment as it has brought me: http://www.bryanaspey.com/2011/02/steal-this-tone.html
Brett Garsed appears on Jonas Tamas' upcoming instrumental guitar album 'Timeless Hour' as a guest guitar player. Brett will appear on the song Farewell. He has just recorded his guitar parts for this song, and his playing will be most certainly one of the highlights of the album Timeless Hour.
The upcoming second instrumental guitar album of Jonas Tamas will feature an "All-star" guest player lineup, including Brett Garsed, Marcel Coenen (Sun Caged), Thorsten Koehne (Eden's Curse), and the new keyboard wizard Sergey Boykov (Shadow Cry).

JS-I just wanted to tell you that I love the new cd, it sounds so alive and fresh. I’m used to hearing this kind of creativity on a player or bands 1st or 2nd cd. How you have you kept your playing and writing so alive and fresh?more http://guitarvideochannel.com/blogs/archives/interview-with-legendary-bassist-stu-hamm
Stu-I make a real effort to remain active as far as different things, different appraches to music. I like to learn. I just hope that I always keep progressing.
This is certainly I think a bigger stretch compositionally than a lot of my other records. I think in some of my earlier records I was trying to be more like what people knew from my work with Steve Vai and Joe Satriani and in this record, I didn’t feel so trapped into trying to write music in that genre. I just wrote a bunch of pieces in varying musical styles so that it would be a really interesting experience hopefully for the listener…it would take them to a lot of different musical places.
JS-It seems that you gave yourself a lot of freedom here on this cd.
Stu-Oh, absolutely, yeah.
JS-Is this the cd you’ve always wanted to put out?
Stu-No, I think that every cd I put out was what I wanted to put out at that time. Like in the 90′s when I did the Urge and I had the tight jeans and crap all over the hair and sang. That’s just what was going on in my life at the time. At a certain point it is just a recording of the way yopur playing and composing at the time….I certainly had more influence on this record and just allowed my songs to progress slower, not such a hurry, just able to do some quiter stuff and not just think I’ve got to write some rock songs for people who are Satriani fans.
The operation are that they will screw in plastic for the part that are gone now. I probably (and hopefully) get the operation on Thursday... I can move it a little and my fingers work fine as long as I don't move the shoulder.
I can even play a little if I get the guitar in the right position, but it is stupid to try more than I already have.
I have talked to 3 doctors and all say that I will be good, no lasting problems.
The last I heard are that it will take a month after operation to get well enough to start to play.

I've just started working on a load of new material for my EP. I'm lucky enough to work with Matt Nevin who's recording all of my stuff!
For this we used the Axe-FX Ultra modelling the Custom Audio 100 amplifier with my Rockbox Red Dog in front of it.
If you'd like to contact Matt Nevin for recordings of your own please check him out on Facebook or shoot me a message and I'll pass on his email address!
Also a major thanks to Ollie Graham for a massive help with all the drum parts! Check out his Youtube channel athttp://www.youtube.com/user/olliegraham
