Andy James: has his music stolen and added to itunes and amazon.

I got a dispute notice on youtube... digging deeper I found that Leyko Records had published Andy James War March but under a different name as Shooting Star (Original Mix) - Steel Shadows

You can listen to the track here:

Don't buy these two tracks

The album has other guitar tracks too... do you recognise any? Let me know so we can notify the artists

VK Lynne,Shane Gibson: remembering Shane - things that make you smile

VK Lynne
I sat down with my guitar last night, and while I was fishing around for a pick, I found this one…
It was roughly 3 years ago, at a rehearsal, when I said to Shane , "Yo dude, you got an extra pick?" He was scratching his eye, and he said "Yeah, girl, here-" He stops scratching, reaches into his bag, grabs this and hands it to me while he turns to Eloy and says, "Man, I can't seem to get rid of this pink eye…"
I looked at his hand. His eye. The pick. Back to Shane.
"Really, dude???"

After a horribly long yesterday, THAT made me smile.

Neal Nagaoka,Shane Gibson: Evangelist - a tribute to Shane

Neal Nagaoka
This was a tune my friend Ermon Harris wrote, played bass and recorded in my studio featuring good buddy, the late Shane Gibson. The song was called Evangelist. We recorded several guitar solos that session and as a little tribute to Shane Gibson, I took a few of his solos and even one that I did to make this short little instrumental version of my friends tune. RIP Shane.
