25 Nov 11 Guitar Hero: WoR – Dire Straits – Money For Nothing (Expert Guitar FC – Hyperspeed 5)

Man, this was pretty annoying one. It’s not that challenging song, the whole thing is pretty much the same riff through the entire song. But it keeps changing just enough to make it difficult to keep up with hyperspeed. Oh well… I kinda messed in the ending, couldn’t hold all the long notes properly. Bitch about it, if you care. Aaaand higher pitch because of the cookie monster.

19 Oct 11 Guitar Boogie played live! by Arthur Smith

This is a rare live performance of the Great Arthur Smith playing his signiture song, Guitar Boogie at the Ovens Auditorium on April 20th, 1995 in Charlotte North Carolina.

MP3 File: Here’s the Title Theme for the Gameboy version of Robocop, dumped from the raw audio file of the gameboy game itself. This is my personal favourite of the Robocop tunes, among other variants (C64, ZXSpec etc) made by Jonathan Dunn, who scored the music to the game. This theme is famous not only for its chiptune genius, but in Britain especially for the Ariston Adverts that advertised Washing Machines, Fridge-Freezers, and Ovens during the 1993-1995 period. And on… and on… and on… and Ariston…

01 Oct 11 Microphone Preamp Comparison Test #1 – Guitar

On December 5th, 2010 we recorded our first Microphone Preamp Comparison Test. We were joined by Okayan on his acoustic guitar, playing his original song “Rainbow Dew”. We recorded through a Chandler Limited TG2, a Chandler Limited Germanium, a Chameleon Labs 7602, a Focusrite Red 6, a Grace Design 201, a Sound Devices MP-1 and the onboard preamps on the TC Electronics Konnekt 24D and the Yamaha 02R. It was an interesting selection of preamp types and price ranges. Watch the video below to hear the differences and what we thought about each of the preamps. We welcome feedback and comments.

20 Jul 11 Guitar Tricks 38: Hammer ons and pull offs This week Neal fills a lessons request from samar077 on how to do hammer ons and pull offs. This is an extremely useful technique for many styles and it’s a great way to add speed to your playing even if you’re not a shred-meister. Adding to the theme of household appliances as guitar tools, Neal also shows you how to use a TV remote control to get some cool sounds out of your electric. Let the experimentation begin!

15 May 11 Stewmade 70’s Appliance guitar (Avocado green)

This is a 2009 70’s Appliance guitar. Inspired by the early 70’s kitchen appliances. My favorite color from that era was avocado green. Although our family had Harvest gold, I always envied my friends who had the cooler “Brady Bunch” avocado green refrigerators, ovens, tea kettles, spice containers, etc. I contacted GE in order to find the exact avocado match for their ’72 GE No-Frost 16′ refrigerator. I think I got pretty close. Complete with wood, chrome, and plastic accents. Pickups are a Lollar Imperial humbucker with coil split, and Lace Chrome Dome single coils. Knobs are white ’58 Jazzmaster knobs to look like the old plastic oven dials of those old appliances.
