Hi Guys, I've developed a couple of Overloud TH3 patches for a project I've got going on.

One of them is a Randy Rhoads style tone.. can be used for both rhythm and lead, sounds similar to the live 'Tribute' tone he had going on. Fire it up and play the riff to 'I Don't Know' cool.gif

There's also an Iron Maiden rhythm patch, heavily based on the Piece of Mind album sound. Try the riff to 'Flight of Icarus' and you'll see what I mean. wink.gif

Attached File ( 4K ) Number of downloads: 3

I just used my ear to get as close as I could to the tones, nothing more. Enjoy!

Hi guys. Many people have shown that they can get the hang of the sweeping motion when doing it at moderate to higher tempos but when they slow it right down to learning speed they suddenly lose the flow. I was teaching the other day and I learned this valuable piece of info through observing the student. So, I made this vid here to tackle this issue when practising slow sweep arpeggios. We also see this issue a lot in REC so feel free to share the vid whenever you need to explain the difference between sweeping and performing separate stroke smile.gif

Hi guys. I've been wanting to do a cover of this song for so long it's not funny.. finally after a few months of putting it on the back burner due to other commitments we finally got it done. Hope you enjoy it smile.gif

Greetings, fellow spankers of the plank!

I've been naughty and made more noise again...... it's an album called PANTHEON. I put out the first track from it the other day, a track called Gott Mit Uns. It's an historical phrase used by the German military for decades around the turn of the 20th Century

Some time ago I had another member join the family. Phobos - my Ibanez RG8. Here he is seen with his brother Deimos, who you may remember I called Spartan until I decided a re-naming was appropriate to fit with his sibling. Gott Mit Uns was the first thing I recorded after Phobos arrived.

For those who like a bit of geekery, you may recognise the names as the moons of Mars. They're named after the mythological sons of Ares, the Greek god of war. Like all of the planets expect for Uranus, (or Uranos) we use the names of the Roman counterparts to the Greek deities, however Phobos (Fear) and Deimos (Dread)) retain their Green names.

The album's out now if any of you are interested.... and yes, that's a 9 minute song right at the end cool.gif
