Jason Shelton: Creating Eden - The Aging of Aristotle

A couple of my friends wanted to know more about this "Creating Eden" solo project I'm working on, so I thought making this would be a good introduction. Just guitar for now with lyrics at the bottom, I'm working on recording other instruments. Also please note, due to the fact I wanted to get everything done quickly, everything is slightly edited. Since the video needed to match the audio everything was done in one take. Expect rough quality and mistakes, but opinions would be cool.

David Valdes: two handed tapping exercise

Hello and welcome to my SHRED GUITAR EXERCISES section.

Example 13 is a nice progression Tapping in which we slid down the first string changing hue progression and exercise, do the basic pattern of tapping with the left hand and press with the finger 1 or 2 in the right hand, as we do better, it is an exercise in speed, but we do it fast, or slow, we remain perfect in any song.

You can find more exercises like this, in my dvd's teaching:

Jess Lewis: two handed percussive acoustic tap

I'm visiting my dads and he has acoustic guitars around an thought I'd give it a go..i dont play acoustic normally so yeah..a challange.. O.o

messin' around playing stuff n' yeah... I'm playing a MIJ 57 reissue Fender stratocaster 1986, using the neck pickup. It's been my first guitar & was passed down from a family member. I'm thinking about selling, but after playing it today I can't decided whether to or not as it's very nice to play-like butter.

Edward Box: Lion Music announce the upcoming release of “Motion Control”

Lion Music is pleased to announce the release of “Motion Control” from UK guitarist Edward Box on 24 November 2013.

This exciting 21 track digital only release sees Box’s previous solo albums - 2002’s “Plectrumhead” and 2005’s “Moonfudge” - packaged together and get a 2013 makeover.

With the advent of time and better technology "Motion Control" sees Edward going back to the masters and making improvements where he felt necessary. These improvements range from better overall sound to new rhythm guitar tracks on a number of songs and even new lead breaks on others.

Renowned as one of the tastiest traditional metal guitarists to have come out of the UK in recent years, and for his work with traditional metal outfit VENDETTA (who have released 3 albums to date on Lion Music - "Tyranny Of Minority", "Heretic Nation", "World Under Fire"), Edward Box has honed an exemplary style of play built around the influence of Michael Schenker, George Lynch, Eddie Van Halen, Joe Satriani etc.

Whilst many are happy to deliver smoking solos and not much else, Edward has made sure he has a stellar musical backdrop over which he delivers his guitar thrills and this 21 track collection is the perfect starting point for the uninitiated.

“Motion Control” sees Box delivers a multitude of rock styles, from all out rock to tender melodic ballads. All of which are strong backdrop to Box’s melodic lead breaks. Edward is also renowned for having superb phrasing all topped off with a very soulful vibrato that make him stand out from the pack and fans of first class guitar work will find plenty to enjoy on ‘Motion Control’.
