Fred Brum: Skervesen Swan 8 string

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

Official Website -
Facebook -

After a bit of back and forth speccing the instrument, here's my new Skervesen Swan 8!This is quite a solid piece of work, effortless to play and has some stunning woods to boot. Scales are 27.1" on the bass side and 25.5" on the treble side on a rosewood / ebony neck fitted with a birdseye maple fingerboard with ebony fillets. Body is made of ash, and the top is spalted walnut (AKA the boobtop) on a layer of bubinga. Pickups are BKP Aftermaths (10ยบ slanted for multiscales).

Tracks were recorded with both my Laney Ironheart through a Zilla cab mic'd with a SM57 and a Kemper (Bad Cat / Triple 6 models), the "funny thing around the headstock" is a Gruv Gear Fretwrap, and the "looks like you're picking with a pebble" is actually a Hufschmid pick made of Tivar. ;) Links below:

Guthrie Govan: The Night Sessions 3 - now available

The daylight has faded and the King of the Late Night improvisation yet again dons his crown...
...plugs in his guitar and commands "Roll the track Fellas!" to bring you his Late Night Sessions 3 jam track series. 5 new absolutely stunning live performances captured on film for you to stare at in a state of amazement and then smile in the knowledge that we will show you how he actually did it through the 'Power of JTC 100% accurate TAB!'
Just when you thought you had managed to conquer the colossal amount of Guthrie licks that we have already transcribed for you, the master of the jam creates another fresh barrel full of them in this totally awesome new package. Mr Govan is on top form again (when is he not?) and has played in a truly sublime fashion over these 5 wonderful tracks written and recorded by no other than the immensely talented Martin Miller.
The JTC team still can't truly believe what happened in front of our eyes at this filming. This man is a monster when it comes to on-the-spot improvisation.
The Late Night Sessions 3 comes with 5 solo tracks by Guthrie, solo backing tracks, extended jam tracks, live video performances and completely accurate TAB and notation.
What a way to end 2012!


5 full length video performances by Guthrie in MP4
5 solo example tracks in MP3

Guthrie Govan, Bryan Beller, Marco Minnemann: Flatlands Vladivostok 2012

The Aristocrats, a U.S.-based jazz-rock fusion trio visiting Primorye, Russia in December 2012, gave unforgettable, packed-house concerts in Vladivostok and Nakhodka. The jazz group -- drummer Marco Minnemann, guitarist Guthrie Govan, and bass guitarist Bryan Beller, filled both Vladivostok and Nakhodka concert halls with enthusiastic audiences, young appreciative fans, and amazing jazz-rock music. In this video the group performs "Flatlands" at their concert in Vladivostok.

The Aristocrats in the Russian Far East

Hello again-

Before we dive into the holiday week, we wanted to let you know about something really cool: Jam Track Central (the fine bunch who helped Guthrie re-release his amazing solo album Erotic Cakes) has just released bass/drum-only “backing tracks” from The Aristocrats debut album, with full transcriptions of all Guthrie Govan’s guitar parts, composed and improvised! For guitarists, it’s a lifetime of learning – and for bassists and drummers, it’s a very revealing focus on the rhythm section interplay.

Just click here to check out JamTrack Central’s Aristocrats “Backing Tracks”.

Meanwhile, we wanted to repeat how grateful we are for the response to our new live album Boing, We’ll Do It Live! The Aristocrats At Alva’s Showroom!

All of the pre-orders have now shipped. Some are traveling internationally, so if you haven’t gotten yours yet, it should be there really, really soon. We’ve also sent more to the warehouse so there’s plenty to go around.

Meanwhile we’ve got some shows coming up on the west coast of the U.S. in January, and we’re going to be debuting some new material from the upcoming second studio album, which we’ll start tracking in January as well.

That’s it for now. From all of us at BOING Music and The Aristocrats, thanks so much for a great 2012, and have a wonderful holiday season with you and yours!

Philly Guitar Kid: Technical Difficulties/Scarified - 11 year old burn your guitar alert!

It's winter break! At last I can post vids again. Here is another song from one of my favorite guitarist Paul Gilbert. I really enjoy playing this song. Hope you guys like it. Thanks for Watching!

Technical Difficulties by Racer X/Paul Gilbert (guitar cover by 11yr old)

First time to do a multi angle video. The audio was recorded thru a borrowed Tascam US-1800 using Garageband. The audio was done in one take and I made a couple of mistakes but my dad doesn't want me to edit it out because according to him, that would be cheating. The video was done by kuya Mac with his Canon T2i and iphone 4S, and edited on Final Cut Pro and iMovie. Special thanks to kuya Mac for showing me how to use final cut pro and how to do better vids, and for doing all this in just two hours. Subscribe, Like, Comment, and Share if you like my vids. Thanks 4 watching!

Neil Zaza: Live On Crooked River Groove

Neil Zaza: Live On Crooked River Groove

This live companion CD to the DVD captures Neil in all of his melodic glory. Recorded at the intimate Tri-C Black Box Theater in Cleveland, Ohio, this dynamic performance captures all of Neil’s melodic classics such as “I’m Alright”, “Melodia” and “In My Dreams” along with new landmark songs like “Go!”, “King of the World” and “Baroque Sky.” Neil even tackles such rock classics like Elton John’s iconic “Funeral for a Friend” and A-Ha’s memorable “Take On Me.”

Originally filmed as live footage for the Tri-C television program Crooked River Groove, these emotional and melodic performances by Neil and his band showcases why he is considered to be the modern day innovator of melodic rock guitar.

Christopher Amott,Matthew Wicklund: talks about new project

Christopher Amott

Well, you may or may not know that I have moved to the US. I’ve been living here since April and I actually got my green card in the mail a few weeks ago, which was cool. It took a while but now I am all settled in and can get down to business over here.

So, what I’m doing right now is writing for... wait for it... a new Armageddon record!  Yes! it’s true. I've got a brand new band together & some kick-ass material that I can’t wait to unleash on the world.

To be honest, haven’t been this excited about working on an album in about 10 + years... This one’s gonna be 100% metal with loads of shred-guitar and intricate compositions.

I am writing the music together with Matthew Wicklund (God Forbid, Warrel Dane, Himsa) who is the second guitarist in the band. The hooks and melodies we have come up with are huge!! Very excited...
On drums we have Van Williams (Nevermore). Bassist and vocalist I am not revealing yet... but I can say this much; it won’t be me singing. I’m predicting a release for this album by summer 2013.

Happy holidays!

Christopher Amott: Impulses

George Lynch: Strypers Michael Sweet to join T&N for tour duties

Legendary Rock Interviews: Is it true that Michael Sweet of STRYPER will be the touring singer for T&N when you tour?

George: Yeah, that was the decision we all collectively came up with. We thought he was really the right choice. LYNCH MOB has done quite a few dates with STRYPER and we know Michael as a man and he's just such a wonderful guy, which is important at this stage in the game. I've learned that lesson the hard way over the years and now it's to the point where you just wanna work with people who want to work with you and are dedicated, honest, transparent and have a good work ethic. Michael is obviously talented, we all knew that, but he is also just a good person who has all of those qualities and architecture and is a solid guy, but more importantly, his voice is really suited to what we are trying to accomplish live, which is to recreate the DOKKEN stuff faithfully. Jeff's voice is not necessarily ideal for all of that, because he has a bit of a raspier, harder edge, which is better suited to the original music that T&N has done, Jeff will do some of the DOKKEN stuff, but then Michael will come in and do some of the material that he's better at. The other advantage we have with Michael Sweet, other than him being just a great human being, is that he's a really good guitar player and really suited to playing the rhythm parts we have, which is something we really need collectively in this band and for this material. There's a lot of guitars on this record and we wanna reproduce the record faithfully. Plus, he's not a bad-lookin guy either!

Ignazio Di Salvo: Hammer Legato Exercises

Hi guys! This is a few of legatos exercises. Is a very difficult kind of technique because I never use right hand to pick the first note over one string.
