Carlos Arcay: Improvisation over a Andy Timmons Style - Jam Track Central

This video is a one take improvisation over a very cool backing track of JAM TRACK CENTRAL, contained in the Sfogli´s pack. This is the Andy Timmons style track. You can see in the background the Andy´s Timmons Ibanez but this time I decided to leave it to rest and take a chance on my LTD on Youtube. Unfortunately the audio is not recorded too well, so in the future I´ll try alternative methods for recording. Feel free to post any comment or question I will be happy to answer them. Hope you like it!

Alessio Forlani: Marvit guitars demo

After testing many instruments, Alessio shows three guitars he kept for himself to work in the studio. He believes that to get great sounding tracks, the best weapons are in most cases vintage based guitars, cause the have their own inner voice and character. Actually he owns many axes, but the three in the video plus a Mahat (Les Paul model) are his hard core arsenal when approaching a recording session.

Jeff Beck: with Brian Wilson at the Rock N Roll fantasy camp

Jeff Beck, who's innovative guitar sounds you've grown up on from the Yardbirdsonward, is ranked as one of the top guitarists in Rolling Stone's, "100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time," where they called him, "one of the most influential lead guitarists in rock." Jeff Beck has received 7 Grammy Awards and has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice: as a member of the Yardbirds & as a solo artist. His influence is undeniable. He is one of the true Guitar Gods of our time.

Now pair that with Brian Wilson, co-founder of the Beach Boys. Talk about growing up on music. The creative force behind some of the most cherished songs in rock history, Brian Wilson was barely out of his teens when he created nine consecutive gold albums! Albums which included such hits as "Surfer Girl," “In My Room,” “I Get Around,” “Don’t Worry Baby,” "Fun, Fun, Fun," “Help Me Rhonda, “Surfin' USA”, “Good Vibrations" and "California Girls"...just to name a handful of the more than two dozen Top 40 hits Brian co-wrote, arranged, produced and performed on with his family band, the Beach Boys.

Rock N Roll Fantasy Camp's four-day event is favorably priced at our Early Bird Rate for only $6499 but the experience, however, is priceless. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to jam out with Brian Wilson, Jeff Beck and so many more is like nothing you've ever seen before, or ever will again. Spots are limited, and filling up fast so act now! Don't miss out! Lock in your registration now!

Cyrus Yong: acoustic lap tap original

Lap tap song I made :D so fun haha. I improvised on a lot of parts. I started playing regular guitar and thought it would be cool to play regular and then switch to lap tap. Its really really hard to make these type of songs so I tried my best gimme tips and stuff thanks for reading :)
I love making my own music really fun as well

Tuning: DADF#AD
Have fun!

If youre trying to learn lap style, you might wanna first learn tapping technique and when you learn that flip the guitar sideways and start hitting notes! :D
I made a song like this in the summer and these type of songs take a long time to make but I didn't expect to make this one so quick.

Peter Banks: Original Yes guitarist Dead at 65

Peter Banks passes, our condolences to all family and friends, RIP http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_Banks
Peter Banks, best known as the original guitarist of Yesdied last Thursday in his London home from heart failure. He was 65. Banks was reportedly found after failing to show up for a recording session.
After playing with bassist Chris Squire in the Syn, Banks and Squire helped form Yes in 1968. Banks played with Yes through their first two albums, 1969's Yes and 1970's Time and a Word, but disagreements over the direction of Time and a Word led to Banks' dismissal from Yes before the album's release.

Carljohan Grimmark: Germán Pascual - If The Sky Would Fall

Blistering guitar riffs, gritty melodies, and hooks big enough to catch a whale, this could be the followup to Narnia's 2009 release "Course of a Generation" it's pure melodic power metal bordering on melodic thrash, following up where the last Narnia album left off.Vocalist GERMÁN PASCUAL (Divinefire / Narnia / Mind's Eye) is set to release his debut solo album "A New Beginning" to North American and Europe via Nightmare / Sony / RED.
Blessed to have these special guest musicians joining on the album are Carl-Johan "CJ" Grimmark (Narnia / Fires Of Babylon / Rob Rock/ FullForce) and bassists Per Schelander (Pain of Salvation / Royal Hunt) and Raphael Dafras(Almah / Seven Horizons).

GERMÁN PASCUAL is a man with a very special voice, he's achieved much notoriety around the world, lauded greatly and likened with the greatest melodic metal voices of our day, like Ronnie James Dio, Jorn Lande, David Coverdale to mention but a few in international reviews. Germán was the last voice of NARNIA, a well known Swedish melodic heavy metal band, similar to Stryper and Rob Rock, The new music is hard heavy and melodic power metal without compromise. Germán was named as "the best metal voice 2009" by ”The Gates of Metal”.

Germán Pascual, born 1974 in Uruguay, raised in Brazil, and moved to Sweden with his family at an early age. At five years old, Germán sang to the radio with everything… popular music to opera even classical music. In 1994 Germán began an education in voice and music. Longing for Sweden again, he returned to look for work and a way back into music, doing a short stint with a Rap artist D.J. Mendez, but his friends helped him realize… he was meant for metal.
Starting music as a drummer in a thrash band at 15, he was invited to try out for a much better band rehearsing next door as a vocalist when they overheard him screaming next door. It was to be his destiny, the band next door was MINDS EYE. In 2008 NARNIA needed a singer, and through a good friend Germán  made contact with Narnia guitarist C.J Grimmark. The rest is history… “Course of a Generation”  by Narnia was launched in late 2009.  Feeling blessed to have found this great situation in Narnia, Germán was stunned when the band decided to end all activity. In addition to music, Germán works with the less fortunate, the homeless, and in drug addiction.

Recorded in Germán’s studio "Camel wash studios", Engineered and produced by Germán Pascual & Raphael Dafras,. Mixed and mastered by Thomas Plec Johansson in "The Panic Room" (Sweden).

Andrew Jay,Magoo: Whitby - a spirit having flown

Andrew Jay,Magoo
This track is dedicated to the late Magoo, a very close friend of Andrew Jay.  Magoo and Andrew Jay were the best friends, hanging out and jamming just as friends do. Magoo was severely injured in a tragic accident, after getting caught in a wave on the sunny beaches of California. The wave had broken Magoo's spine in three places leaving him paralyzed. Magoo was flown back to Boston and Andrew Jay attended his bedside... but it was to no avail... Magoo crossed over to the other side. This song is dedicated to the free spirit and and loving humility of Magoo. Rest In Peace

Andrew Jay:
"This is me and the one and only MAGOO!!!! It took us like 6 hrs a day for 2 weeks and was recorded about 5 years ago. Im grateful for having these times with Magoo and I miss you BROTHAMAN"

Eric Barnett: High Wire - Points North

Points North is a leading light of modern instrumental guitar music, single-handedly helping to revitalize the genre through their technical prowess, superior musicality and compositional skills.
Spearheaded by guitarist Eric Barnett (a finalist in Guitar Player magazine's Guitar Superstar competition), drummer Kevin Aiello and newest member, bassist Uriah Duffy (Whitesnake, Christina Aguilera), Points North stands on the shoulders of iconic artists The Police, Rush and Dixie Dregs, but, as the title of their debut album suggests, clearly cuts its own artistic path.
