Justin Sandercoe: Neon - John Mayer lesson

This guitar lesson will take you through the intro, notes and most importantly the picking hand fingerpicking patterns which I think are the key to getting this right. Then we'll check out the rest of the tune for both acoustic and electric versions, maybe not completely fully, but close.

Hope you dig.

Chris Poland, Dave Mustaine: Peace Sells… But Who's Buying? - Unboxed

The 25th-anniversary reissue edition of "Peace Sells" sold around 1,800 copies in the United States in its first week of release. The platinum-certified set was digitally remastered for the first time and made available in multiple configurations on July 12 by Capitol/EMI. All of the versions, including a 2CD lift-top box, digital album, and a deluxe 5Disc+3LP box set, include a previously unreleased 1987 concert from the band's first world tour and new liner notes written by MEGADETH's Dave Mustaine and METALLICA's Lars Ulrich. The deluxe box set also includes previously unreleased and rare mixes of the album's tracks and hi-res audio for the remastered album and concert, as well as an expanded 20-page book, plus 8"x10" photos and reproductions of vintage MEGADETH memorabilia. The cover of the box uses a new, unique process of lenticular 3D which reinterprets the original cover, creating the illusion of MEGADETH's Vic Rattlehead character jumping out of the art.
