Why am I back? Uh…to teach you how to rock, that’s why! I’m also here to talk about the brand-new Steel Panther album, All You Can Eat, which you are no doubt listening to right now! I came back just so that I could teach you how to play some of the incredible riffs on our new record, and I’d like to start with the song “If I Was the King.”
Steel Panther have premiered the music video for "Pussywhipped," a track from their latest album, All You Can Eat. You can check it out below. As always, be sure to let us know what you think of it in the comments or on Facebook!
For this month’s column, we’re going to focus on a Steel Panther song that is so great and so hooky, it’s pretty much impossible to imagine that it even exists. “Community Property,” from our 2009 album, Feel the Steel, contains a grand total of four chords, which, to me, is a good thing. Simplicity can be great.
As a lead guitarist in a heavy metal band, when I solo I like to go for licks that are simple and repetitive and “drive the point home” as well as take the solo and song to another level. The licks in this month’s column are designed to sound impressive while being relatively easy to play—which is important to me, because I’m drunk most of the time.
The guys in Steel Panther have released yet another NSFW music video. This time, it's for a track called “Gloryhole.” The song is from the band's new album, All You Can Eat, which was released earlier this month.
This month I’d like to talk about a song from our forthcoming album, which will most likely be out by the time you read this, called…well, I have no idea what it’ll be called. But since it’s out now (I mean, by the time you are reading this) you will know the title, because you have it.
A lot of people come up to me and say, “Satchel, you rock! You know all 28 frets of your guitar, man!” And I say, dude, are you stupid? My guitar only has 24 frets…or something. I don’t remember how many frets my guitar has. But the point is that I know how to get up and down my neck, and how do I know that? I know all the scales and all the arpeggios, and all of the positions of all of the modes, in all of the keys.
