Alex Verghese: Marco Sfogli Sunset Light

Great cover of one of my favourite tracks...

So its been awhile since I put up a video, thought I'd try this song, probably my second fave of Marco's album after Andromeda. far from flawless but hope you enjoy anyway. Kept the volume of my guitar pretty high so you can hear all the errors :D

Learnt by ear (apart from the run at 2:37 to 2:40, Marco tabbed that at his forum :D) so no tabs sorry. Might transcribe if I get alot of requests.

I'm using a 7 string for this video but you don't need one to play the song.

Guitar is a Schecter Omen 7 Extreme with Dimarzio Crunch Lab 7(bridge) and Liquifire pickups (neck). Pod XT live used for tone, recorded through analogue output (not USB), sound monitored with M-Audio BX5a speakers. Been playing for near 5 years. Tuning is Bb,Db, Ab, Db, Gb, Bb,Eb. 9-54 gauge strings used.

If you like the tones I used in this video and have a Pod XT or possibly Pod compatible device, subscribe me and send me a private message with your e-mail address ill send you the patches. I'm also happy to answer any other questions about recording etc. I do get alot of messages from time to time and its hard keeping up with them so I might not reply sometimes.

Heaven-sent overdrive
Michael Angelo wanted a pedal that would give him creamy, classic overdrive without clouding his unique touch and tone. T-Rex produced an overdrive unit with a sound sweet enough to make an angel cry -- but with an earthy bite and punch! From a medium blues crunch to a rock guitar wail, Michael Angelo overdrive covers the full spectrum of overdrive distortion.

Michael Angelo Batio's tonal masterpiece
Let there be no doubt: the Michael Angelo Batio Overdrive was created for this guitarist and his brand of melodic heavy rock -- moody, moving, majestic. But the core of this pedal is a warm, natural-sounding smooth distortion that will appeal to any guitarist looking for the holy grail of overdrive.

Scott McGill: Classical Sequences Lessons

Scott McGill: IN THIS LESSON we’ll be looking at some sequential phrases found in classical music that have influenced the rock and fusion guitar vocabulary. These examples are excellent for the development of both hands, so sharpen up your pick and let’s get our chops up!

Leslie West,Joe Bonamassa, Billy Gibbons,Steve Lukather: Unusal suspects packed with great rock music and heavyweight guitar stars

Leslie West, Legendary guitarist and the founder of one of rocks most influential bands, Mountain, will release abrand new solo album, 'Unusual Suspects', on Monday September 19th.
The album features West alongside a hand-picked line-up of the world's finest guitar players; including Slash, blues-rock guitarist Joe Bonamassa, Black Label Society front man and ex-Ozzy guitarist Zakk Wylde, ZZ Top's Billy Gibbons and Toto's Steve Lukather.

Released by Provogue Records, the album follows the shocking news that, in late June, West underwent life-saving surgery, when his leg was amputated above the knee. While such an ordeal would surely deter lesserartists, West insisted on honouring the 'Unusual Suspects' album’s September release date and is gearing up for a US tour in October.
Read the full press release online here.

"These guys don't just show up to play on everybody's albums," says West on his special guests and the album's title. "They're all stars in their own right, and fantastic players - everyone with their own sound and style, about as far from the usual suspects as it gets."

Signed a new deal with Providence Cables. They are amazing. Larry Carlton, Michael Landau, and many others using the same cables. I will be shooting some video soon.

I signed with Line 6. I haven't used digital gear in the past but they have elevated the bar so high. Line 6 will be a brilliant addition to my productions and live rig. Bogner has helped design the amps I am using. Videos coming soon.

New Endorsement! Wampler Pedals.

Happy Friday guys - hope you're looking forward to the weekend. This is my last weekend of full time teaching - all future weekends will be dedicated to finishing the album and finally getting in some much needed practice time. Can't wait. I may also get some gaming done as I got a copy of Dead Island today - kind of like Left for Dead meets Fall Out 3 - and I'm totally hooked! Amazing game and anything Zombie related goes down so well in our house!
I also got engaged last week to my amazing girlfriend Cheryl. She's incredible and very patient and understanding with my guitar related shenanigans! I love you Cheryl and thanks for saying yes!
One very cool development over these last two weeks is that I've started using Wampler pedals and they've been kind enough to offer me a great artist deal. Thanks especially to Jason Wilding who organised the whole thing and was incredibly kind to let me try out the pedals first. Of course, I'm still using my awesome Toadworks pedals but the Paisley Drive and Ecstasy offer me sounds I didn't have previously and I'm a serious sucker for Overdrive pedals! Demos coming soon. Here's the link...

Therese Wiig : Follow the Signs (Solo) - Born of Osiris

BORN OF OSIRIS ROCKS! Ok, so this solo is the hardest one I have ever attempted to play, so yeeh. I noticed that I make a lot of constipated faces when I concentrate really hard, so based on my lovely facial expression while playing this, you can see that it's freakin though ;) And most of the people that I've seen on youtube that cover this solo have been playing for like 5 years, and I've only been playing for 3, so cut me some slack :D And of course I'm wearing my Born of Osiris shirt which I bought from Cameron Losch himself when BOO played a show in Oslo... Which was awzuum. Born of Osiris are the best! And yeh, hope you enjoy it :)
