John 5: Heady Metal interview

Just talked with John 5 of Rob Zombie this afternoon. He's gearing up for a fall tour with Zombie and Marilyn Manson. Here's the interview link--

Patrik Pogorzelski: Cannonball Adderley - Au Privave Sax Solo

My name is Patrik Pogorzelski and I'm a guitarist from Sweden.
This is my own transcription of Au Privave - Cannonball Adderley.
Maybe the hippest solo I've ever heard.

Cannonball Adderley - Au Privave Sax Solo

These videos show my last jam with quartal tuning. I'd been using it regularly for over a year but missed the standard tuning so much that I recently changed back to it.

On these jam videos my tuning was: F-C-G-D-A-E

Mark McGuigan: Glasgow Kiss in depth lesson

Learn how to play the riff from "Glasgow Kiss" by John Petrucci - TAB:


Apologies for the ramshackle nature of this MTR, as mentioned in the video I damaged my usual camera and had to record using my Mac iSight camera and iPad, only to find that the iPad focus was out too :/ Anyway hope you can follow how to play the Riff OK ;)

(I've had to upload again as there were audio sample rate issues with the last video. The actual lesson part was higher than standard tuning. Seems the fates are trying hard to stop this one going ahead ;))

Recorded with Suhr Modern Custom through Cornford Roadhouse.
