Danny Gill: earn to Play ZZ Top Vol. 2

Hot on the heels of the first ZZ Top album in nine years, La Futura, LickLibrary brings you Learn to Play ZZ Top Vol. 2 (RRP £24.99). This new double DVD set contains over two hours of guitar lessons featuring five classic ZZ Top tracks.

Walking you through each track, note for note, is sought after guitar teacher Danny Gill. He will show you how to get that offbeat shuffle in Jesus Just Left Chicago, explain the synth-lined glide and catchy riff of Legs and demonstrate why Billy Gibbons is the guitar tone master with Waitin For The Bus. Also featured in this guitar lesson DVD are Cheap Sunglasses, which captures many of the sounds and beats that ZZ Top are famous for and the explosive Beer Drinkers And Hell Raisers.

With the help of Danny and this double DVD set you will soon learn not only the secrets about playing the unmistakable ZZ Top sound, but you’ll also learn the guitar techniques to play these songs including minor & major pentatonic scales, double stops, hybrid and alternate picking styles, unison bends, pull off and pinch harmonics. By following the guitar lessons, and with practice, you will soon be rocking the blues like Jimi Hendrix’s favourite guitarist!

Commenting on the DVD Danny says ‘Billy Gibbons seem to always play the right note at the right time and never seems to hurry, he just finds the groove and sits the guitar parts of any song in with the rest of the band.’ This DVD of guitar lesson is a must for those who want to nail vital roadhouse blues in the style of Billy Gibbons and ZZ Top. Get it, and other ZZ Top tuition material from

Jan Laurenz: Ortega baritone ukulele



Jan Laurenz impro on baritone ukulele
As total uke addict i found this cheap Ortega baritone wich sounds cool and looks cute:)
I use a high string as lowest string,wich may not be the usual choice for the baritone...
i use just a simple classical guitar string.
with a regular "low" D string to me the "magic" of the ukulele would get lost and at that point i could just play a regular guitar without the last two low strings..."just my opinion"
This uke has a passive built in pickup wich is good enough for me....
i sent it trough a line6 Pod live XT wich i used to use for metal/trash metal,but on that particular preset the uke feelt good...with a little delay added.........
the annoying hum in the recording is done to my house wich is very old and has "ground" problems....well always better than "roof" problems
Hope you enjoy anyways...cheers:)

News: Eastwood Guitars search for the World’s Ugliest Guitar


Eastwood Guitars search for the World’s Ugliest Guitar

Eastwood Guitars is determined to find the “World’s Ugliest Guitar”. To help make this decision, Eastwood is crowd sourcing the opinions of guitar players from around the globe with an interactive voting system at facebook.com/EastwoodGuitars1.
This voting page offers a choice of eight of the world’s most extreme mistakes in mass produced guitars from the past 50 years. Round one is underway, this collection focuses on what may be the worst (or best) of the kooky retro vintage era including “the Soviet answer to the Telecaster” – 1969 Tonika EGS-650; the 1970 Czechoslovakian rocker – the Jolana Star IX and a crazy concoction from Italian guitar genius Antonio Pioli – the Wandré Sacrabeo. 
Just to make the voting even more fun, Eastwood Guitars has announced that the guitar with the most votes on May 31, 2013 at 11:59 pm (EST) will be recreated in a limited production run of 24 numbered guitars. One lucky voter will win their own copy of this Eastwood “World’s Ugliest Guitar #1” or their choice of any Eastwood Guitar.

“To say these oddballs are ugly is a little harsh," said Mike Robinson, President and founder of Eastwood Guitars, "they are all over the top and we know that a lot of our fans would love to have any one of these guitars. After all, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.”

Sam Bell: Skye - Red Seas Fire playthrough



Its rare that I cover whole songs, but I love this tune, and the outro is a good workout for the down picking! So I thought I would give it a crack! It is my first time editing with Sony Vegas, so I am very much learning it at the moment! Nothing like PeteyG's epic playthrough of the song next to the train tracks with trains flying around!

There are some tiny little mistakes here and there, but its all fun at the end of the day!

You can download the Red Seas Fire E.P from their website, its free, and they have some awesome things lined up. On another note, my band Mask of Judas are supporting them and Circle of Contempt in Brighton on the 4th of April. We have tickets!


Equipment I am using in this video:
Ibanez RG2228A (with BK Nailbomb pickups)
POD X3 (5150/Big Bottom Rhythms + Vox AC30 for leads)
Cubase 5 for tracking
Sony Vegas for video editing
and my trusty water proof holiday Kodak camera :)

So after being introduced to this lick through a post by Per Nilsson a few weeks back, I had to learn this. It's quite possibly the most difficult thing I've ever tried to play. Gettin' that economy picking up to par!
