Slash: Featuring Myles Kennedy @ Pechanga Resort & Casino (Temecula) 08/09/14 Jack Lue Series

Slash - Saul Hudson (born July 23, 1965), better known by his stage name Slash, is a British-American musician and songwriter.[1] He is best known as the former lead guitarist of the American hard rock band Guns N' Roses, with whom he achieved worldwide success in the late 1980s and early 1990s.

During his later years with Guns N' Roses, Slash formed the side project Slash's Snakepit. He then co-founded the supergroup Velvet Revolver, which re-established him as a mainstream performer in the mid to late 2000s. Slash has since released three solo albums, Slash (2010), featuring an all-star roster of guest musicians, Apocalyptic Love(2012) & World on Fire (2014) recorded with singer/guitarist Myles Kennedy of Alter Bridge, along with rhythm section Brent Fitz and Todd Kerns, known on the album as The Conspirators.

Slash has received critical acclaim as a guitarist. Time named him runner-up on their list of "The 10 Best Electric Guitar Players" in 2009,[2] while Rolling Stone placed him at No. 65 on their list of "The 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time" in 2011.[3] Guitar World ranked his solo in "November Rain" No. 6 on their list of "The 100 Greatest Guitar Solos" in 2008,[4] and Total Guitar placed his riff in "Sweet Child o' Mine" at No. 1 on their list of "The 100 Greatest Riffs" in 2004.[5] In 2012, he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, along with other members of Guns N' Roses.

Hey people!

This will probably be my last video before I turn 21 on the 26th. I really like the original song, so I thought it'd be cool to adapt it to my way of playing - lots of nonsense ofcourse!
I played all the guitar parts and bass, alongside programming all the other instruments.

Thanks for all the support!

Derryl Gabel: Memorizing Notes on the Guitar Fretboard

Go to http://www.derrylgabel.comto order your copy of GPS today! This available on DVD, Blu-ray, and mp4 download version. In this one hour video I show you a systematic approach for memorizing the notes on the fretboard. This is a time tested, proven method that I have used with my students.
This is a new and improved method that I use to call Note Recognition which was shown on my FIT video. Most everyone that I have shown this new method to, once mastered, is able to instantly know the notes on the guitar without even looking at the fretboard. I've found that most new students master a string within 15 minutes or less!

If you are serious about becoming a better musician and guitarist this DVD is for you.
It doesn't matter what style you play. Knowing the notes instantly will make you exponentially better
on your instrument. Let me show you how! As an added bonus I have included a live in studio
performance which includes the transcription.

News: Virgil Guitars Makes Unprecedented Leap On Kickstarter

Tampa, FL - An artist and guitarist since the 1970's, Virgil Mandanici set out to make guitars that would be exceptional in tone and playability first and foremost. After 35 years of playing guitar, he decided it was time to craft guitars that would feel, play and look better than anything anyone has ever played before – thus Virgil Guitars was born! As a master craftsman, Virgil has drawn his building career from several luthiers over the past several years to make these incredible guitars. The inlay and appointments on his guitars are simply a testament to his attention to detail.

Says Virgil, “After playing guitar for over 35 years, I knew what I was looking for in tone and how a neck should feel and had been willing to go to any length to achieve the 'perfect' guitar fit for myself, and ironically, other players. On certain models, they come with a DVD that shows the birth of my guitars starting out with a chunk of wood all the way to a music video – I do every step of this process by myself, in-house. Since they are ""One-offs"",  there will NEVER be two guitars alike, so all owners of a Virgil Guitar will have their own unique tone and feel. I also make different guitars to fit different budgets, since most players to not want too much ornamental appointments on their guitars”.

Virgil's 1st guitar, the ""Dueling Dragons"" was featured in the September 2013 issue of Guitar World ( ) and he did quite well selling the guitar to a collector in 2012 for $17,000.00 USD. Virgil has made 17 guitars to-date, making each one totally unique of the others.

Virgil had experienced a slowdown in sales over the past year as so many other builders have in the custom guitar building industry and decided to take a different approach. ""I had spent my first few years as a builder developing my skills and spending most of my profits on state-of-the-art equipment, processes and supplies to build up an inventory but this year, things have slowed down so much, I wasn't able to allocate any monies towards advertising."" says Virgil. In comes ""Kickstarter"". Virgil saw an opportunity to get his name out there and get busy making at least something via a Kickstarter campaign.

Kickstarter is one of several ""public funding"" websites that is an all-or-nothing system to raise moneys to achieve a specific monetary goal and usually has people offering items for visitors to make ""pledges"". Virgil launched his campaign on August 7th, 2014 and within the first 48 hours of the campaign he not only reached his goal, but jumped up to a whopping 210% of his goal of $5000. This was due to an anonymous person pledging to a $10,000.00 guitar that includes 12 frets of inlay and a round trip plane ticket to pick up the guitar next year. Says Virgil ""We were ecstatic! I about fell over seeing things excel so early on in the campaign and we have had an overwhelming response to all of the things I am making for people with pledges starting at only $1 to help me reach my dreams and get these guitars known by the world. I am making wood guitar picks, fretboard key chains and my original 'Fretboxes', offering guitars that start at $2600 - oh, and 2- $10,000 guitar builds!""

Virgil's Kickstarter campaign ends on September 6th, 2014 and he has been getting people to commit to his project because they believe in what he's doing and agree that the guitars he builds really need to be seen by the world. As of the writing of this article, Virgil's campaign was at 260% of goal and he's still pushing for the stars.

All album tracks available individually as well!

'Every Guitar Hero Needs a Ballad'.

That is what our co-founder Jan Cyrka said when we decided to create our first ever JTC original full length album. Vai, Satriani, you name them...they have one!

So we spoke to a number of the artists on our glittering roster and asked them to compose their ultimate ballad. The result is a powerful album that is full of pure emotion and drive and takes you on a journey through the minds of 11 incredibly talented guitar players and composers.

Starting with Andy James' 'The Wind That Shakes The Heart' (which was written by Jan Cyrka and James Graydon) the emotion sucks you in from the first note, just as you would expect from a brilliant ballad track. The scene is then set and from there, all 11 JTC artists continue the same trend with their own individual take on the ultimate ballad.

Any album that has brand new original tracks from the likes of Guthrie Govan, Alex Hutchings, Marco Sfogli, Jack Thammarat and more should be in any guitar players collection, there is no questioning that. However, we have gone the extra mile and provided you with 3 options!

1 - Just the album

2 - Just the backings, complete with full transcriptions and 5 bonus videos (Andy James, Jack Thammarat, Marco Sfogli, Feodor Dosumov and Al Joseph)

3 - The Deluxe edition, which contains all of the above!

4 - Physical CD

So, are you ready for over 50 minutes of ultimate ballads?
