Tina S.—everyone's favorite teenage French shredder—is back with another new video, her first of 2015. This time, Tina—who has covered everyone from Yngwie Malmsteen to Eddie Van Halen to Steve Vai to Gary Moore—tackles DragonForce's "Through the Fire and Flames."
Here's a video that was posted to Facebook by a news/media website called Siakap Keli. Even though we can't read a word of the Siakap Keli post (or its many comments), we can tell you the street guitarist in the video is young Damian Salazar of Argentina.
Here’s a great quality clip of SRV performing “Pride and Joy” in January of 1990 during his MTV Unplugged taping. Vaughan uses a 12-string Guild, which gives the song a completely different vibe than the original, full band recording. “Pride and Joy” originally appeared on his 1983 Epic Records debut, Texas Flood.
This is one of the easiest homemade guitars I have ever built, and it only took me one hour to make. This lap steel was made from an extra 2x4 I had in my shed and just a few saw cuts to the wood. I even used a pre-wired acoustic soundhole pickup so there was no wiring needed. Anybody can build this lap steel!
Back in the late Thirties when the electric guitar was still in its infancy, Epiphone produced a variety of Electar model amplifiers to pair with their electric guitar models.
The Century and Zephyr amps were designed to go with Epiphone’s classiest, top-of-the-line electric guitar models with the same names. Unlike most amps produced at the time, which resembled luggage, the Century and Zephyr amps were housed in maple or birch cabinets with tasteful art deco styling that looked right at home on stage in the upscale nightclubs where they were often used.
Epiphone recently introduced a reissue of the 1939 Century amplifier.
This compact 20-watt 1x12 combo faithfully reproduces the original version’s cabinet down to the six-point screws, grill cloth and chrome-plated carrying handle while offering a newly designed tube amp circuit.
The Seymour Duncan 805 Overdrive may be based upon the classic 808 Tube Screamer overdrive, but that’s really just a starting point as it does so much more.
Instead of building an imitation with perhaps a few circuit changes thrown in for good measure, the 805 Overdrive features an entirely different chip (an MC33178) and provides an expertly voiced three-band EQ section that delivers higher levels of saturated gain, lower noise and increased tonal versatility.
Below, check out a recently posted demo video for the ServoBender guitar. What is it? It's the latest — and perhaps the most successful — attempt at replicating the sound of a 10-string pedal steel guitar using the six-string variety (You know, the thing most of us play).
Various onsite sponsor activities and an interactive art installation with graffiti artist RISK have been announced for the fifth annual Monster Energy Welcome to Rockville, April 25 and 26 at Jacksonville, Florida's Metropolitan Park along the St. Johns River.
