MasterThatRiff! 74 - The Aristocrats "Sweaty Knockers"
Federal authorities conducted simultaneous raids at Gibson Guitar offices and factories in Nashville and Memphis on Wednesday in the latest of a series of legal woes to strike the legendary guitar maker. Gibson has been the subject of an ongoing federal lawsuit and a separate investigation into whether it illegally imported endangered ebony woods to use in its sought-after instruments. more
DANIELE GOTTARDO'S GUITAR COMPETITION

Announcement Coming Soon Next Week, stay tuned, thanks !!
MAKE SURE YOU READ ALL INFO BEFORE ENTERING!
To get things moving on my channel I thought a competition with a monster haul of goodies was well in order.
Tim Slater : Editor of Playmusic Magazine (http://www.playmusicpickup.co.uk)
Alan Lang : Sidewynder Pickups (http://www.sidewynder.co.uk)
Laurie Monk: http://www.truthinshredding.com/
1st prize: Sidewynder HH-1b and HH1n Humbuckers, Rothwell Tornado Overdrive, Guitar Tech Analog Delay, 6 Assorted V Picks, Planet Waves cable and mug, DR Fluorescent strings. (Almost £400's worth of kit!).
2nd prize: Sidewynder humbuckers (model dependent on your genre preference), 6 Assorted V Picks, Planet Waves cable and mug, DR Fluorescent strings.
3rd prize: 6 Assorted V Picks, Planet Waves cable and mug, DR Fluorescent strings.
The Steps you need to take to enter:
1) Subscribe to http://www.youtube.com/haydensmusic2) Then download the backing trackhttp://www.4shared.com/audio/BJUsW1ir/haydenshaul.html3) Video your response solo
4) and then post your video in response to this video (put name of the competition and your full REAL name in the title!):
5) Promote your video everywhere and anywhere
6) Get free goods delivered to your door (once you win, obviously).
Backing Track is in Emin. If you want to hear Hayden's attempt you can! Download it here :http://www.4shared.com/audio/5gPvoKP4/haydendoinghaydenshaul.html
We're looking for one continuous take here with no harmonies or drop ins. We'll be judging you based only on whether we dig the solo or not. Obviously the picture should be clear and the backing track and your playing audible but apart from that it's your creativity we want to see. The competition is open to people of all ages and from anywhere in the world. You can enter as many times as you like.
IMPORTANT: please DON'T delete your entry once it is posted and approved!!! Each entry goes through a process of being watched, commented, approved and added to a list for the jury. This is a very time consuming act and deleting your entry afterwards messes up that list (apart from the time wasted)! Also, DON'T post your video as a response to any other video as it won't be on here anymore due to YT spam policies...!
Participants who fail to follow the rules will be disqualified!
Problems with video response:
It can take a number of hours for your response to appear. This is because they have to be approved first.
Competition closes 23rd Sept 2011 at 10pm GMT. If there are a lot of entries please be patient and we'll get the results up as soon as possible.
Remember, if you're on Facebook why not "like" my page and be kept up to date with upcoming videos for this and other channels as well as future competitions.http://www.facebook.com/pages/Haydensmusic/117081498382621Check out http://www.youtube.com/user/perfektus big thanks to Perf for providing the backing track.
Also thanks to Laurie Monk for his time and pointers in getting this comp off the ground. Cheers!
Last of all, the backing track was chosen to open the competition to players of diverse styles. You won't be judged solely on technical ability or anything like that, just make it a solo to remember.

Johnny Swing - 22-08-2011 (Nico Schliemann)
It's been quite a year for Sammy Hagar. He told his own story in a book that shot straight to #1. His band Chickenfoot, featuring guitar god Joe Satriani, Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith and former Van Halen bassist Michael Anthony, shocked the rock world by releasing an album so smokin' it went gold. And Gibson has just honored the Red Rocker by creating the Gibson Sammy Hagar Signature Explorer guitar.
Gibson.com caught up with Sammy in the studio, where he openly (and, at times, fondly) spoke about his days in Van Halen, including the fact that he took a pay cut when he joined the band. Sammy also spoke about tequila, his Montrose days, and just how many clams he earned from the sale of his tequila company (hint: "gazillions").
