Marty Friedman: Exotic Guitar Loops at 140 BPM

"Exotic Guitar" is a new loop library option for adding a live guitar sound to a variety of genres. The loops were recorded by guitarist Marty Friedman and showcase his signature style of playing ranging from high gain leads and rhythm to clean tone guitar melodies influenced by Japanese and Middle Eastern scales.

All guitars were looped and synced to 140 BPM making for some interesting possibilities in remixing Friedman's guitar in other electronic genres such as Dubstep or Trance.

Jess Lewis: Afro Blue Bass

I really love this song, I enjoy bass, I'm not very good at it but I'll give it a go- forgive the pops & horrible clip noises that appears out of no where, my hand is not very good and so it kept knocking the string into the pickup.. I've only listened to this through the headphones so it'll most likely sound terrible out of everything else :-P okay I'll stop moaning now. I'll be honest, I got lots of inspiration from a few bassists that have covered this already on youtube, so just giving it ago coz I like the lines/groove quite a lot.. cheers

Click on the link above to get the tabs for this video! GO!

In this guitar lesson, our female teacher Alejandra, will teach you a cool guitar riff from the song Glasgow Kiss by John Petrucci.
John Petrucci was born in July 12th in 1967 in New York, U.S.A. He is a guitar player and composer best known as a founding member of the progressive band Dream Theater. He also has a solo album called Suspended animation. Petrucci was involved in the project G3 touring all over the world. He also has been named by several magazines as one of the best rock and metal guitarist of the world.
So, today´s lesson is about this cool guitar riff from the song Glasgow kiss from his solo album Suspended animation. It´s a hard one so please start very slow at first and then start adding speed gradually with a metronome.
Ok, hope this helps and don´t forget to come up with your own ideas, which is the best advice for starting to find `your´ unique sound and style....

Vittorio Camardese: two handed tapping guitar 1965 - everyone (except me) talking about this.

Not sure why people are talking about this... but here goes... Van Halen did not invent tapping guitar... er... I think we all knew this... didn't we?... lot's of prior art... we stand on the houlders of giants...and all that good stuff.

An amateur Italian guitarist named Vittorio Camardese Two Handed Tapping, in 1965!!
A doctor radiologist working full time at the San Filippo hospital in Rome. He says, in the footage, that he had to get a special permission from work and that the guitar was lent from someone to him for the show.

The program is an old RAI show, based on music and guitar.
