Bryan Steeksma: Wonderful Slippery Thing - break down

Welcome. If you're watching this then chances are you have been mesmerized by Guthrie Govans smooth guitar playing. Join the ranks of many guitarists who are greatly inspired by him.

This is a part by part breakdown of his song Wonderful Slippery Thing. I do not go into the improvisation parts in this video. I only break down the parts of the song that Guthrie plays consistently.

I will make another video of how I would approach improvising to this song, and how I believe Guthrie approaches his solos. Its too much to fit into this one vid.

Anyway, hope you all enjoy.

Hey guys,

First off, HAPPY NEW YEAR!! You guys made 2012 AMAZING for me, thank you so much. I personally wanted to stay away from this song because its been done so many times in so many awesome ways but it always got requested to I figured for a 1st upload of the year I'd give it a shot. I wanted to make it sound as if the game was being played. Thank you all so much for everything. It means the world. Big ups for all the suggestions, messages, donations, fan art, subs, and support. You guys rock my casbah!

Best to ya,

Guthrie Govan, Bryan Beller, Marco Minnemann: Aristocrats news update

Happy new year Aristocrats fans!
Bryan here as usual, speaking for Marco and Guthrie, and we've got some exciting stuff coming up in January for the band:
We're heading into the studio in just 10 days to start working on the second Aristocrats studio album. We've all been writing like crazy for this, and the new tunes have their usual share of Aristo-madness and room for improvisation. We'll have some updates on this while it's going on, which should be fun. Make sure to keep up with our Facebook page and our Twitter feed for the very latest.
* We've got some U.S. West Coast tour dates coming up in late January, and we'll be debuting some of the new material at those shows. Here's the info in summary form:
January 26 & 27 - San Pedro, CA - Alva's Showroom
January 29 - San Diego, CA - Brick By Brick (w/special guest Travis Larson Band)
January 31 - San Luis Obispo, CA - SLO Brewing Company (w/special guest Travis Larson Band)
February 1 - San Francisco, CA - Biscuits & Blues
February 2 - Sacramento, CA - The Boardwalk (w/special guest Travis Larson Band)
Full details can be found on our website calendar. We're excited to play the new stuff!
* For those who might have missed it in the holiday madness, last month Jam Track Central (the folks who re-released Guthrie's amazing solo album Erotic Cakes) put out 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.
* We continue to be stunned and super-grateful at the response to our new live album Boing, We’ll Do It Live! The holidays really slowed down delivery for some (even though all orders shipped on time; it was the local post services that fell behind), but it seems everyone's got theirs now. And we've got plenty in stock in case you were waiting for the holidays to blow over. It's always available at our Aristo-Store, along with some snazzy new "Pig vs. Chicken" t-shirts. Yes, really. :-)
Thanks again everyone, and hope to see you out there in 2013!
Cheers to all,
The Aristocrats
