Hey guys, you know those motivational style videos you see on YT, with some self help guru ranting whilst Hanz Zimmer music plays over scenes from Rocky or Warrior ? Well, I thought it was time that guitarists had their own motivational video full of quotes and things.. I included some of my faves, some from Zen guitar and some new ones I found. Hope you enjoy it smile.gif

The wait is over.... the full horror of my music can now be apprehended !

I hope you guys dig it !

It was all recorded with the Marshall JVM....DI with an XLR straight into the Edirol UA-25. The same process I use for GMC lessons. The lead parts for the songs were recorded over a multitude of months, beginning back when I first released Ilios (and Sub Zero even before that.)

So some of it is the yellow guitar, some of it is the Jackson and some of it is the Ibanez. All of it is crazy, though tongue.gif

Hey all, just wanted to say that I've finally gotten around to putting together my first solo album. You'll recognise some of the tracks which have been blessed with new drum tracks from my new Italian partner in crime, Andre De Carolis, as well as being remixed, mastered etc.



It was real fun to put together. Rather than being just a vehicle for guitar solos, I like to write stuff that is strong in structure and riff heavy too. So it's almost like an instrumental Megadeth album with hints of Opeth, Satriani, Becker, Friedman etc.. thought I'd put it up here in case anyone's interested smile.gif
