Andy James: Mystery song - Look Ma No Tats! Four from Music Live 2007

I'm not sure what this song is called because it doesn't appear on any of Andys 5 albums. This was Andy James 5 years ago and I think this song truly demonstrates what an unbelievably fast and clean and melodic player he really is. Some of the stuff in this video still makes my jaw drop. Great stuff Andy.

This video was taken at Music Live @ Birmingham NEC in 2007 and has been sat on my computer ever since. No copyright infringement intended.

Bomberman Both Hand Tapping on Guitar Masato Itoh ボンバーマンのテーマを【両手タッピングで弾いてみた】
Originally I was planning to film only Normal tempo (BPM=130), Slow (BPM=100), and Fast (BPM=160). But after I finished filming those 3 versions, I started wanting to see how it would sound in another faster tempo (BPM=190) which I had not even practiced. I hope you enjoy that too.

News: GJ2 Conjures Old School Feel With New "Spirit of '79™" Guitar Model

GJ2 Conjures Old School Feel With New "Spirit of '79™" Guitar Model

Laguna Hills, CAEverything old school is new again it seems.

In response to repeated customer requests, GJ2 Guitars is releasing a new limited edition model—the
Spirit of ‘79™— that harks back to the early days of Grover Jackson’s guitar-making career in both look and feel.

The “Spirit of ‘79” series is a “distressed” modification of the GJ2 Glendora guitar line. Production will be limited to 40 guitars in all (10 white, 10 red in the USA; another 10 white, 10 red for international markets).

Made using an ash body, maple neck, rosewood fingerboard, Floyd Rose tremolo system, and in-house made Habanero™ pickups, the Spirit of ’79 is available in Antique White with black pick-guard, or Candy Red with white pick-guard. Pickup options include single humbucker, or humbucker/single/single configurations. The Spirit of ’79 is priced from $1999. Like all GJ2 guitars, this new limited edition line is built at the company’s headquarters in Orange County, California.

GJ2 Chief Mechanic and Visionary Grover Jackson has always been a good listener, making guitars based on what players say they want. By offering the Spirit of ’79, “We’re responding to multiple requests for an aged instrument that echoes the beginnings of Grover’s career,” explained GJ2 co-founder Jon Gold. “We get requests from our customers in much the same way a band does. Popular bands can’t just perform new material every time out, they have to play their hits, too. Although GJ2 is a new company, Grover Jackson has created many ‘hit’ guitar designs that have remained popular since he began building back in 1979. So for us, The Spirit of ’79 embodies that era, as well as a new beginning.”

About GJ2 Guitars
Founded in 2011 by Grover Jackson (formerly of Jackson Guitars and Jackson/Charvel fame) and Jon Gold (former Senior VP International Sales for Fender), GJ2 Guitars manufactures superior-quality electric guitars from its facility in Laguna Hills, California. 

The company designs and performs all its own wood-crafting and creates nearly all of its instrument components in-house, including pickups. Only the best woods and materials are used. Great attention is paid to playability, tone, and build quality. Grover Jackson personally oversees the production of each instrument.

For inquiries, including new dealers, please contact CEO Jon Gold at or 949-325-4584. Visit for additional information.

The "Spirit of '79" by GJ2 Guitars is a new limited edition available in Antique White as shown, or Candy Red with a white pick guard.
