Eric Calderone: Monkey Island Meets Metal

Hey guys,

I've seen this one floating around and since it is Geek Week I figured I'd nerd out a little bit more than usual haha. Firstly, this was one of my first PC games I ever got. Got it for Christmas in 1992 (I think). I ran through the LucasArts games like a madman after that. Day of the Tentacle, The Dig, Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis, Rebel Assault etc. I used to just let the intro to this play I loved it so much. Thanks for everything guys, it means the world. Big ups for all the votes, comments, subs, messages, suggestions, fan art, donations, and support. You guys are the absolute best and rock my casbah, ALWAYS. And a special ups for those who contributed to the campaign, can't wait to get you guys your stuff.

Best to ya


Jack Thammarat: Ballad Heaven - new jam track series

Ballad Heaven
Jack is back with a new 5 track Smooth Ballad series doing what he does best, creating addictive and inspiring solos. This time we teamed him up with backing track guru Klaus Wolf and together they have created a superb jam track series that will provide you with lots to learn and plenty of scope for creating your own solos.

We all know that Jack is one of the modern day kings of melodic improvising, so we briefed Klaus to create some jammable ballads for Jack to do his thing over. As you can see by the previews, these awesome jam tracks are perfect 'Jack territory' and he has created solos that are full of wonderful phrasing to show you just what can be achieved over this style of track.

We set this package to intermediate as there are lots of sections that most players will be able to master with practice. Jack also throws a few advanced licks into the mix take your time and practise them at your own pace.


5 solo example tracks
5 solo backing tracks
5 extended jam tracks
5 video performances
Accurate TAB and notation

With over 12 minutes of solos to learn, this series will keep you very busy and provide you with lots of inspiration when creating your own solo ideas. Come check it out!
