Jason Becker's instrumental masterpiece, "Perpetual Burn," has been a perpetual source of inspiration — and challenge — for guitarists since it was originally released in 1988. In fact, we decided to challenge our own staff, who turned in a spot-on, 17-page transcription of Becker's shred classic in the new July 2013 issue of Guitar World magazine. Now it's time to challenge you!
On Page 30 of the all-new July 2013 issue of Guitar World, Jeff Loomis discusses this video, which he created and sent us back in March. It shows Loomis tackling Jason Becker's "Perpetual Burn" to a backing track — and pulling it off in one impressive sitting.
Today, GuitarWorld.com brings you the exclusive premiere of “Speak Of Nothing,” a new track by Jeff Loomis. The song, which features Joe Nurre on vocals, will be included on Plains of Oblivion — Tour Edition, which will be released April 16 via Century Media Records.
If you're a fan of mind-blowing metal guitar, you need to be excited about the recently announced summer tour featuring The Contortionist, Jeff Loomis, 7 Horns 7 Eyes, and Chimp Spanner, who will be making their North American live debut.
We're only a few days away from the release of Jeff Loomis' second solo album, Plains of Oblivion, so we thought we would bring you one final taste of the new album to keep you satiated until next week.
As he gears up to release his second solo album, Jeff Loomis recently filmed two new performance videos for EMG pickups. You can watch video of Jeff playing "Mercurial," from his new album, Plains of Oblivion below.
