Martin Miller: 20 Fusion Licks

20 Fusion Licks

Introducing JTC's first original '20 licks' package...the ultimate product for learning bite sized licks. Who better to start proceedings than Martin Miller, who has built up a huge social media following with his quick lick videos!

Martin has put together 20 brand new and increasingly difficult Fusion licks that are designed to really raise your Fusion game. Each lick comes in full speed audio and video, plus a slower speed so you can analyse every little detail....and there is A LOT to analyse! Work your way up from Lick 1 to the finale...Lick number 20, AKA 'The Monster'...good luck!!)! Also included is the backing track at 3 different BPM's, giving you the backdrop to work on each lick at your own pace, as well as creating your own licks. As ever, accurate JTC TAB/Notation is included for each lick, plus Martin has written really comprehensive notes for each lick too.

Throughout each lick you will learn an abundence of ideas and techniques, including: wide interval phrases, double stops, string skipping, arpeggio substitutions, legato/hybrid picking, triad pairs, sweeping and chromatic embellishment....and that is just scratching the surface!

So, if you are serious about guitar then this is the perfect challenge. Watch the promo video below to get a little taster of what to expect!

Tom Quayle: ACS Custom T1 Live! In Ear Monitors & Live Pack Vid

ACS Custom T1 Live! In Ear Monitors & Live Pack Vid
Tom Quayle
Hey guys - Nothing flashy or playing related here but I wanted to do a quick video to show you the new custom in ear monitors and live pack I received from ACS Custom a couple of weeks ago. I'm pretty sure these could be of fantastic use to alot of you guys out there doing regular gigs or clinic work and looking to have the best audio quality and save your hearing at the same time. These are custom moulded, triple driver, in ear monitors with in built, high end ambient mics allowing you to dial in exactly the amount of ambient stage volume or noise that you require for your performance. I am blown away by these and they are a real game changer for me in terms of clinic and trade show performances. The applications for live use speak for themselves but for me they have become an essential part of my live rig and are the best sounding headphones I have ever used. You can check them out at: -

Barry DiGregorio: Liquid Neptune - instrumental music with a leaning towards psychedelic

The all-original instrumental rock band Liquid Neptune has just released their first album INTO THE DEEP. With musicians Barry DiGregorio or guitar, David Neumann on Bass and Lewis LaMonte on Drums. The album is online at CD Baby, ITunes and It is rock instrumental music with a leaning towards psychedelic.

INTO THE DEEP is Liquid Neptune’s first album and it has the goal of taking the listener on a musical journey into psychedelica and improvisational rock while at the same time keeping the music upbeat and danceable. INTO THE DEEP delivers musical colors reminiscent of Jimi Hendrix, Robin Trower, Jefferson Airplane, Quicksilver Messenger Service along with splashes of Jeff Beck, Gary Hoey, Rush and Pink Floyd all in one.
