AXE NINJAS




Ben and I are very proud to present our first collab tune "Second Chance". We recorded a video for the track and a 15 minute lesson at the end for you to get jamming to the backing. It's a pretty slow ballad in A minor and should be fairly easy for you to get rocking with.

I am very excited about this - I haven't written a tune online with anybody since KMC Metal (me and GMC instructor Marcus Lavendell). Working with someone else does wonders for your inspiration and Ben is such a cool guy (+ I bet he eats three donuts per day and you couldn't even tell!! laugh.gif )

We are working on yet a new tune in this very moment so I hope we will get to show you more stuff in the near future.

Thanks for listening - we hope this will inspire you to get practicing and writing music!

The only reason Kris had his mouth open for so long in the video was that he was hoping I'd through a donut in there ! Sorry, no such luck Mr Dahl... I ate them all ! laugh.gif

But Kris is right.. we are currently working on something that will hopefully kick lots and lots of rear end ! cool.gif We hope you enjoy the video (and the tune of course) smile.gif

Yeah I know what you mean, next time we'll turn down the music a little more not to distract laugh.gif

That is really cool stuff guys!
Kris, you gave us students a good lesson on how to win the attitude competition. Plus, I'm gonna go and get some Donuts right away...for me tongue.gif
Ben, I always wanted to tell you: Both my mom and my neighbour think you're really cute...One is 61, the other is 29...pick your favourite wink.gif

I'd say that it's an impossible decision for Ben to make without some background information about donuts as well (older people tend to be more generous)

Its always great to see a new Kris video biggrin.gif And Ben, I really liked that ascending 5ths lick, definitely going to incorporate that into my playing.
