Guthrie Govan: Licks Eleven

Guthrie Govan - Licks Eleven

There are few guitarists on the planet that can improvise the most incredible and inspiring solos day in, day out. However, Guthrie Govan absolutely can. When he came to the JTC studio to film Licks Eleven we could have used all 8 different takes that were filmed. For this special package we have decided to add in a bonus video of one of the other takes, just to show you how magical Guthrie's improvisational skills are.

This track is literally crammed full of all sorts of twists and turns for you to analyse. Inevitably, you are going to fill your licks catalogue with a whole range of new Guthrie licks....and whether you master 5% or 95% of this track you will have learnt a hell of a lot.

For the chosen solo you get the included tab/notation in PDF/Powertab format, plus of course the video and solo track and finally the backing track to jam over as you learn. Premium members get instant streaming access by selecting the +MyTracks button.

Check out the preview below. For £4.99 this is an absolute steal!

Warrel Dane,Lenny Rutledge: Sanctuary - reveals artwork and details for new album, 'The Year The Sun Died'

Legendary Seattle metal band, SANCTUARY, has posted the artwork for their upcoming album, The Year The Sun Died. Created by Travis Smith (OPETH, NEVERMORE) the album art can be seen below.

The album will be released in North America on October 14 (October 6 in Europe) and will feature 11 tracks. There will be a deluxe media book, available exclusively at CM Distro in the United States, which features expanded packaging and the bonus track, "Waiting for the Sun", originally recorded by THE DOORS. The vinyl version will come with a CD featuring this bonus track as well. The 11 tracks on the CD and LP are as follows:

The Year The Sun Died track-listing
1. Arise and Purify
2. Let The Serpent Follow Me
3. Exitium (Anthem of the Living)
4. Question Existence Fading
5. I Am Low
6. Frozen
7. One Final Day (Sworn to Believe)
8. The World is Wired
9. The Dying Age
10. Ad Vitam Aeternam
11. The Year the Sun Died

SANCTUARY was formed in Seattle in 1985; the band released two studio albums on Epic Records, Refuge Denied in 1987 and Into the Mirror Black in 1989. Worldwide touring with the likes of MEGADETH, WARLOCK, FATES WARNING and DEATH ANGEL, just to name a few, followed each album. Singer Warrel Dane's sky-high vocals combined with guitarist Lenny Rutledge's more mature take on classic thrash riffs separated SANCTUARY from the throes of metal bands struggling to get noticed at the time. Simply put, SANCTUARY offered something fresh sounding in the muddled world of '80s thrash.

Vinnie Moore: Red Zone Rider Album announced

Tuesday September 16, 2014, the debut, self-titled album by RED ZONE RIDER (RZR) will be officially released by Magna Carta.

Consisting of world class guitar hero, Vinnie Moore; vocalist and multi-instrumentalist, Kelly Keeling; and drummer, Scot Coogan, RZR plays rock'n'roll infected by a heavy blues-oriented backdrop. Played by the newly emerging AOR radio of the early 1970's which featured bands such as Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, Mountain, Grand Funk, the sound of this era is heard throughout RZR's album. Dripping with attitude and swagger, two of the chief components of music from this time period, Red Zone Rider sounds like they could easily have been recording in London in 1972 with Eddie Kramer at the board.

Instead, RZR recorded the new album a year ago in Las Vegas with Mike Varney producing. In either scenario, Vinnie, Kelly and Scot have made an album that will span decades. Red Zone Rider is one of the finest musical combinations to have come forth in a long, long time.

Truth In Shredding: Top 10 picks for Guitar Idol 4

Looking at my top 20 videos, this was now the hardest aspect for me... to get down to 10 tracks suitable for the Guitar Idol 4 final. If you have listened to my top 20  there were lots of awesome tracks to pick from, but now  it's just 10 tracks that can be selected this time.  So now more dedicated listening. I leave the tracks to run in the background as I work.


Again I focused on the tune first, looking for a memorable melody. Having listened to the tracks for a great number of times, I already have a feeling about the tracks I would like to hear at the final. The quality of the top 20 is very high.  The video quality is no longer an issue. Guitar skills are still highly rated... but now My my final selection is decided by "Would I buy a copy of this track"

Apologies if you didn't make it onto my top 10 list. Does not mean you are not great, just it didn't my stringent criteria.

Guitar Idol 4 - Top 10

So how did I compare to the selection of all the Guitar Idol judges?  2 out of 8, but no surprise to me and my experience of judging competitions. The selection is NOT as straight forward as you may think and often times the judges have different views.  I'm looking forward to seeing the final!

Thanks to all the people who entered.

Truth In Shredding: Top 20 picks for Guitar Idol 4

Looking at my top 50+ videos, there were lots of awesome tracks to pick from that might have been suitable for the Guitar Idol Final. I tried to get down to a top 20 this time.


Again I focused on the tune first, looking for a memorable melody. Having listened to the tracks a number of times, some begin to stand out. The tracks still need some guitar grunt and also the video quality.

Apologies if you didn't make it onto my top 20 list. Does not mean you are not great, just it didn't make my stringent criteria.

Lots of great tracks to pick from for the Guitar Idol Final. I tried to get down to a top 50.

This time I focused really on the tune first, and adding the guitar grunt after, and also the video quality.

Apologies if you didn't make it onto my list.  Does not mean you are not great, just it didn't make my stringent criteria.
