Today, we offer up an imaginative instrumental cover of the tune by the Jimmy Herring Band. The performance, which features Herring on guitar, Neal Fountain on bass, Jeff Sipe on drums and Matt Slocum on keyboards, took place at a club in Arkansas. Herring's resume includes the Allman Brothers Band, Widespread Panic, Phil Lesh and Friends and more.
Guitar Center recently started creating "product spotlight" demo videos for gear that happens to be available at their stores. Case in point, this new demo video for Gibson's 2014 Les Paul Traditional model.
Below, check out a new video that was posted to Paul Gilbert's official YouTube page. The clip shows Gilbert shredding on a stand-up bass — which probably shouldn't be called a stand-up bass in this instance since Gilbert is holding and playing it like a guitar — or a bass guitar.
You might remember the video we posted last week, where Gibson added a new Gibson Double Diamond series guitar to an empty display space in the Fender room at the NAMM Show. If not, you can check it out here.
The guys at TC Electronic have posted a brand-new demo video featuring none other than Paul Gilbert. In the clip below, you can watch Gilbert has he demonstrates the company's new Ditto X2 Looper pedal. Among other things, Gilbert shows how to make creative use of the half-tempo feature and the reverse effect.
The Guitar World crew visited the Roland/Boss booth — it's actually a large room with several sections and a stage — during the 2014 Winter NAMM Show in Anaheim, California. We were introduced to several new items from the company, including the ME-80 Guitar Multiple Effects processor. Be sure to check out our video below!
You get to be a fly on the studio wall as bassist Jimbo Wallace, drummer Scott Churilla and Jim "The Rev" Heath discuss the band's past, their vibe, records from the 1950s, their recording process — and the roots of "My Hat," a rocking track off their new album, Rev, which was released January 21 by Victory Records.
This lesson takes the same ideas discussed in my last lesson, "Increase Left-Hand Strength and Produce Great-Sounding Sequences,” and applies them to the diatonic major and minor three-note-per-string scales. It will help you get the seven positions of the major scale memorized, increase your left-hand strength, solidify your alternate picking and deliver some great-sounding sequences.
