Tom takes us through step by step from the very foundation of the scale its intervals and scale shapes to every intricate depth chordal and superimposition elements this "The Scale of Fusion" has to offer. I can't say enough how deep this lesson goes in its theory and backed up by great licks of which there are 10 that advance into incredible complexity as they move through each lick, there's stuff I've never seen done here and I've seen alot. The interval expansion you'll get and pathways learn through lines you willlearn is exiting enough and worth the few shekels it costs. Then the great 5 cool backing tracks to make the scale work over the scenarios Tom teaches plus the PDF that is Packet full with theory scales chords diagrams and info , this really is a MUST. I was very impressed with the explanations and overall sound and incredibly good video quality , at a huge screen expanded there was not jelly or pix-elation its a really professional lesson pack and very very good.. more

Orianthi, to join Alice Cooper's band

Great news for Orianthi, I can't imagine a more perfect platform to perform on that that of the Alice Cooper live show, so many great guitarists already associated with the role, including Kane Roberts, Vinnie Moore... Damon Johnson has left Alice Cooper's band to join Irish hard rock legends Thin Lizzy. So as a result Orianthi has replaced Johnson in Cooper's line-up.: Damon Johnson said: "
I love you, Alice Cooper. And Chuck, Tommy, Steve, and Glen. And Keri, Jimmy, Eric, Ryan, and Tommy C. With all my heart."

RJ Ronquillo: Eastwood Joey Leone guitars

Eastwood Guitars introduces the new lightweight Joey Leone Superfast
The new Joey Leone Superfast is the lightest and most response semi-hollow body guitar that Eastwood has ever produced. This is the third in the Joey Leone signature series and is an absolute pleasure to play. Based on the 25 ½” scale and the double cutaway semi-hollow body, Eastwood and Joey Leone focused on creating a lighter and easier to play model and the result is the Joey Leone Superfast.
The secret to the Joey Leone Superfast is the two-piece Alder wood pancake laminated center block, it is as stable as rock maple but half the weight. This lightens the guitar and makes the resonance of the strings more consistent. The trapeze tail combined with the already popular longer scale length adds life to the scale behind the bridge. All Leone models have the 2mm additional wideness of the set one-piece mahogany neck, which allows your fingers to stretch out for ease of fretting. It is equipped with two coil-tapped custom Humbuckers, a master volume, tone and on, off and coil-tap switching, tune-O-matic bridge and has an optional Bigsby. The Superfast comes in black and includes a Deluxe Hardshell Case.
"The Joey Leone Superfast might be the best semi-hollow guitar we have ever built!” said Mike Robinson, President and founder of Eastwood Guitars, "All you need to do is play this guitar acoustically and you’ll see, hear and feel the difference."
The Eastwood Joey Leone Superfast is available now, to find your closest dealer visit
