Nita Strauss: Foxy lady gives great guitar lessons


Nita Strauss 

My first 2 video guitar lessons for All Axess University are up now!!! There's one for beginners and one for more advanced players. Check these out and let me know what you want me to cover in future lessons in the comments

Nita Strauss shows you how to play a descending tapping run that utilizes pedalling off the 3rd and 5th of the scale

Nita Strauss - AllAxess University - Descending Run


A lesson in improvisation in the key of 'A' major. The breakdown of the lick allows different approaches and voicing of playing the first 8 notes of the 'A' major scale; one is two notes per string and one is three. Nita showcases an interpretation of the scale from a traditional perspective to a more "shred" approach

Steeves Austin: killer Ibanez - Lundgren : Pickup Comparison on an SA160

AWOUEILLE ! I have just received my new pickups from mister Johan Lundgren and I wanted to make a little comparison video.

- First shot is my Ibanez SA160 with stock Axis series pickups, the AH4 and AS2 :
The SA160 is probably not the most expensive guitar around there but as you can see the stock pickups are very good and do the job perfectly. This guitar will probably stay one of my favorite "Go To" guitar.

- Second shot is exactly the same guitar but with Lundgren Pickups "The One" and "60s Vintage" :
As usual, you never go wrong with Lundgren. The humbucker is bright and clear without lacking aggression if you need it. The single coil is also very creamy and you could definitely use it for twangy rhythmics as well.

Both shots have been tracked and mixed EXACTLY the same way :
- Guitar / Pod X3 / Apogee Duet 2
- Slight post EQing + D82 Sonic Maximiser
- Drums are "superior drummer" with some drumagog sampled layers
- Bass is DI

You can download the wav versions of both shots here :

Ollie Roberts: #Bicio #DVMark Competition




Here's my entry to the #Bicio competition, this was a tough one for me as I usually hate completely improvising a solo, but i actually really enjoyed doing this and being out of my comfort zone. There's plenty of mistakes and bum notes in here but I loved the feel of the solo so I just went with it. Hope you guys enjoy it :)

Timo Somers: uses Timber tones



Timo Somers http://www.timber-tones.com/timo-somers-60-w.asp

We met the Dutch guitarist at the Musikmesse 2014 along with bandmate Barend Courbois (Blind Guardian, Vengeance) and we immediately got a good vibe. Very keen on his tone, Timo wanted to try and experiment and ended up falling in love with our Jazzy Tones Max.

"I love the Jazzy Tones Max for the heavy, accurate picking I need in Delain. The sound is so full and big, but with an aggressive high end pick attack, which defines what you are doing."

Martin Miller: 20 Must-Know Rock Licks



20 Must-Know Rock Licks

Martin Miller is back with his second '20 licks' package...the ultimate product for learning bite sized licks. This time we are exploring the world of Rock.

Martin Says:

'Within this package you will find several soloing examples for three stylistically different rock tracks (a straight Rock track, a Rock ballad and a Bluesy shuffle). Each of the examples is roughly ordered by difficulty for each track. I tried to keep the level of difficulty a bit more intermediate for this release, as opposed to the previous lick-based instructional. That doesn't mean there isn't some crazy stuff going on, but I made sure there's something in here worth learning, no matter what level you're currently at'

Each lick comes in full speed audio and video, plus a slower speed so you can analyse every little detail! Also included are the 3 different backing tracks at 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 a load of ideas and techniques, including: string bending, legato, alternate and economy picking, open string licks......and that is just scratching the surface!

So, if you are serious about playing rock guitar then this is the perfect package to get stuck into learning. Watch the promo video below to get a little taster of what to expect!
