Inlay Guitar scale sticker XCHORD upgrades you more than a guitar effector, but with 39 likes, 173 dislikes I'm sure this product is not one many would go for.

Eric Calderone: Batman Meets Metal

Hey guys,
Happy New year!! So i went to a movie with my parents over Christmas and The Dark Knight Rises was one of the previews. I watched the trailer 1000 times before I saw it in the movie theater, but there was something about the big screen that boosted the Batman tune up a couple notches on the request list. There's a chant in there that from the new movie, just for the info. Big ups for all the support, messages, comments, subs, fan art., donations, and suggestions. You guys rock casbah as always. Oh yeah, there's a tab book out!!
Best to ya

Reserve your (numbered) copy of this special Live CD of the NDY festival (Nov 13, 2011).

Exclusive Live CD
New live album of the benefit festival for Jason Becker. Pledge for the live disc! Proceeds will go to Jason Becker!
On November 13, 2011, a 6-hour guitar festival was held to honor Jason Becker, the incredible guitarist known for his extraordinary work with Cacophony, David Lee Roth and Marty Friedman, among others. Out of deep respect for Jason and love of his work, each guitarist featured at this tribute show waived their usual performance fees, playing that day simply to honor one of their contemporaries and source of great influence: Jason Becker, a modern day guitar great. All notes played that night were dedicated to the great Jason Becker in support of his struggle against the disease ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis), which is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord.
Contributing artists who played for Jason include: Guthrie Govan, Stuart Hamm (Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, Frank Gambale) , Michael Lee Firkins, Mattias Eklundh (Freak Kitchen), Marco Sfogli (James LaBrie Band), Kiko Loureiro (Angra), Daniele Gottardo, Stéphan Forté (Adagio), Andy James, Atma Anur and more… 
The live show was recorded on 24 tracks and now the tunes still need to be edited, mixed and mastered in the studio + design of the album needs to be made. 
We need your help to finish the production on this live album. With your pledge, you will be helping to ensure that this amazing recording of a legendary concert gets released as well as defraying the cost of Jason’s growing medical expenses (
Thank you!
