Tom Morello: Guitarmy takes over Bryant Park

The #Occupy Guitarmy takes over Bryant Park, then takes down 7th Ave to Union Square. Tom Morello and his Guitarmy weren't deterred by the nasty NYPD, who by the way had 17,000 officers on guard against the peaceful protestors. What a fucking day. No one will forget the brave Guitarmy and their courageous march through and around the cops as the police tried to break up the protest numerous times.

News: Shred This Way - Blogging about guitars to make money

Blogging about guitars to make money
Ever wondered why there are so many guitar blogs out there, well the answer is quite simple, to make money! If you don't believe me simply go to google and type in "Guitar blogs" and open any page randomly, the first thing you would see is an ad selling some kind of guitar product. Now the real question is "Is this wrong"?. I definitely would say "No" because Shredthisway is one of them. Now allow me to explain why I don't think this is wrong and why you should also consider starting your own guitar blog or website to make money online. more

Fred Brum: Our Dying World Solo - Sherman 8-string

My album Atonement is available (along with a free downloadable track at - please give it a listen. :)

Official Website -
Facebook -

So Ola sent me an email last Friday, in true "Help us, Shred-wan Kenobi, you're our only hope!" fashion. Considering how pro-Sith I am, I let him rot there. The end.

Jokes aside, Ola asked me to do the solo for the song Our Dying World as he just released a completely remade version of his 2007 Feared album (which happens to kick ass, so go get it at, which I gladly said yes to, and here it is! :)

Guitar is a Sherman 8-string, fitted with DiMarzio D Activator 8 and PAF 8 pickups, although only the PAF 8 is used on this clip. Signal chain was, unsurprisingly, guitar into Kemper Profiling Amp into Presonus 22SVL.

Hope you enjoy! :)

Gina Stile: Vixen -> VXN and are ready to rock! 

25 years after the legendary VIXEN released their first single, "Edge Of A Broken Heart", three of the original members have reunited to form VXN. Two decades have passed since they shared a stage together and they are ready to rev it up.

Singer Janet Gardner, drummer Roxy Petrucci and bassist Share Ross, along with guitarist Gina Stile, who was the guitarist on VIXEN's"Tangerine" album, are gearing up to perform again for the first time in over 20 years. "It just feels right," says Janet Gardner. "It was simply time to do this. The fans kept asking and we respect that."

Share Ross offers, "With hits like 'Edge Of A Broken Heart', 'Cryin'','How Much Love', 'Not a Minute Too Soon', 'Love is a Killer' and 'Rev It Up' emblazoned upon our souls, we knew it was time to resurrect our sound. We want to give the fans what they want."

In 1987, "Edge Of A Broken Heart" climbed the Billboard chart to the Top Ten and VIXEN had hit after hit. EMI suddenly had the only platinum-selling all-female rock band of its time on their roster.

Dubbed "MTV Darlings", the hits kept coming with "Cryin'", "How Much Love", "Love Is A Killer" and "Not a Minute Too Soon". The band earned credibility as they opened up for superstars, including OZZY OSBOURNE,DEEP PURPLE, SCORPIONS and BON JOVI, to name a few. A live performance on the "Arsenio Hall" television show sealed their credibility with the fact that these girls could play.

VXN will reunite at a select number of festivals and showcase dates in 2013 to perform all of the VIXEN hits and classic favorites in celebration of 25 years of rock history. The VXN "Revved Up Reunion Concerts" will take place at the kick-off party as well as on board the Monsters Of Rock Cruise on March 16-20, 2013 sailing out of Fort Lauderdale, Florida bound for CoCoCay and Freeport, Bahamas.

VXN is not to be confused with the current version of VIXEN, which consists of founding member Jan Kuehnemund (guitar) alongside Jenna Sanz-Agero (vocals), Lynn Louise Lowrey (bass), and Kat Kraft (drums).

VIXEN's original members Gardner, Kuehnemund, Pedersen andPetrucci appeared together on VH1's "Bands Reunited" in October 2004 to reminisce about their start on L.A.'s Sunset Strip and their rise to fame in the late 1980s, before the onset of grunge in the early 1990s displaced metal at the top of the charts. They also took part in a short performance for the program.
