A short description and demo of the great stacked for Strat pickups by Seymour Duncan. My demo tune "Rage Against The Washing Machine" shows you the sorts of tones I've been working with and how responsive these pickups are to gain simply using the volume knob. I love them. for more about me including music and lessons

Andy James: The Lost Tapes - new album and perfect valentines gift!

The Lost Tapes: An Introduction

Hey all!

This album is a collection of some very old pieces I wrote years ago and recently stumbled across again. These tracks are still some of my favourites, so I felt it worthwhile putting them into a proper release for you. Unlike a conventional album, which may be written in a certain style or with a certain influence, this album shows a lot of different directions I like to take myself creatively. There are heavy tracks, light rock tracks and even a finger- style acoustic piece!

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me at, I do read all my emails but may not be able to reply to everyone!
As with all my music, each of these pieces really meant a lot to me at the time of their writing, so I hope you get as much out of them as I did.

There is an option to get the Guitar Transcription eBook with all 11 tracks, leads and rhythm parts notated perfectly along with Guitar Pro files for each of the tracks!

Practice makes perfect, so don't be discouraged if you can't land every lick first time – this stuff is TOUGH. Take it slow and I'm sure you'll pick up a ton of cool new riffs, runs and soloing ideas for your own material.

Cheers, and rock on!
Andy James

Pre Order

Andrew Hake: Carvin Allan Holdsworth HH1X - Eric Johnson Cliffs Of Dover

I love this song and have wanted to learn it for a long time. It was a fun challenge. Also just got my Carvin Allan Holdsworth Hh1x and it's the best guitar I've ever played! And I'm playing my trusty TJS drums, made by Tom Schultz in AZ that I've had since I was about 12- still love them just as much as when I got them. This was recorded at Villain Recording Studio in Phoenix with Engineer Byron Filson, who is an outstanding engineer
