Marty Friedman: talks about his upcoming super hot tour.


Marty Friedman
To all my friends who`s cities I won`t get to on this Autumn 2012 tour-Be sure that I want to play for every single one of you! Anyone who saw the 2011 tour knows how much I love playing my ass off for all of you. The Europe tour that was just announced is just the beginning, and I do plan to get to many more places after this first European leg is done. As much as I like hearing about what places you want me to play, telling your local promoters the same thing would get more results! Either way, as always I appreciate your support and see you on tour!!

Three awesome guitar players, Marty Friedman,Stéphan Forté, Yossi Sassi,  and one awesome gig. More news to come!

Eugene Lee: dedicated to my great grandmother


Getting used to the recently acquired Axe Fx 2 with a clean patch. Audio was recorded direct into Audacity via USB, and monitored through my Mackie HD 1221 loudspeaker. Using the trusty Suhr Custom Shop Modern as always.

A cover of the amazing tapping piece by Fred Baty of Crepusculum (Check him out here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NmaBGkAKDrM), this song has haunted me this past month and I finally sat down to learn it and brush up a little on my tapping technique.

Hope you guys enjoy this as much as I enjoyed learning and playing it. Will be doing more videos frequently from now on so do subscribe if you like what i've done so far.

Bernd Steidl graduated High Scool in 1985 in Germany. He has been playing guitar and piano since he was a kid. Everybody in his family played one or two instruments. He had a strictly German classical music background.

He went to Los Angeles in 1987, and graduated at G.I.T. in Hollywood in 1988. Meanwhile Mike Varney got in contact with Bernd Steidl, and put him in "Guitar Player Magazine" and gave Bernd Steidl a record deal. He put out his first record in 1992, "Psycho Acoustic Overture". Back then Bernd Steidl thought his technique was still lacking and so he went to Moscow and Sofia to practice some piano and get more inspiration for his guitar playing.

He has played a lot live for the German Embassy and he has flown around the world to play for political events. He has played for George Bush, other presidents and kings. Right now I'm in Munich, Germany, producing music to pictures as well.He has produced "Pyscho acoustic overture", "burnt steel", American release name "Paganiniana". more
