Sam Bell: Exivious 'Entrust' Guitar Solo Contest Entry

Here is my entry for the Exivious Entrust Guitar Solo contest. I really enjoyed improvising some ideas around on this track. I had done several takes early this morning, however this one felt the most natural and musical of the takes.

Sam Bell - Exivious 'Entrust' Guitar Solo Contest Entry

Nevada Music asked me to demo these two very affordable 7 and 8 string Ibanez guitars. Straight out the box, facotry set up. I was blown away by the quality, playability, and sound that is possible with these instruments. (Info and specs in links below)

In this video I play over a modified version of one of my own songs. I change guitar between sections to show the kind of sounds available on these amazing instruments. I start of with a straight ahead bridge pickup rhythm tone, then I move to a split bridge tone, something most Ibanez guitars can do and is a signature sound of the Ibanez RG and S series guitars. Then I demo some clean sounds using some chords and some clean lead playing to show how open the guitars sound. Finally, it wouldn't be a Sam Bell or Ibanez demo without some overdriven lead playing to demo the playabilty of the instruments.

Be sure to head to and check them out!
