Chris Brooks: Picking Systems and Sequences

Chris A. Brooks

Just wanted to give another mention to my first instructional product which is still available from It's a package about picking systems. I chose Pentatonics as the examples because they're such a universal subject, but there are a ton of Speedy lines to be had here, so check it out, jump in, and watch your progress skyrocket!

This album has certainly taken a long time to put together, and has even seen some stylistic changes over the past year of writing and recording. I've tried to create music that can be challenging at times, but always retaining a strong melody. With the addition now of Orchestral parts, I think this album has a much bigger sound than my debut.
released 18 May 2015

Thank you to my endorsers and the people who have supported me throughout. Thank you Gavin at Fret-King for supplying me some fantastic guitars and also thank you to Andy at The Amp Factory for providing me some excellent profiles for my trusty Kemper.

Aaron Marshall: PVRIS - Fire - Solo Interpretation

PVRIS x Aaron Marshall // "Fire" Solo Interpretation
* I do not own the rights to this material, this is an original interpretation of the song "Fire" by PVRIS*

I've been hooked on this band since one of my tour managers, Donnie, showed me them last fall. Every song on "White Noise" is brilliant and I've been jamming to a few tunes for fun in my spare time.

As some of you guys already know, I'm definitely a sucker for a strong hook, and in a scenario like this, its so fun to play off of the vocal at times, as I have in the "A" and "C" sections. The "B" section is of course, the solo, so I had a little fun with that, but I really enjoyed playing around with the vocal melody before and after.

The guitar is my Suhr Classic Antique and I'm playing through a Fractal Audio Axe FX II into an Apogee Duet, going to a pair of KRK Rockit 5's and you're hearing them in the room via my GoPro. Thanks for watching!
