I've been fiddling around with making noises and stuff and yes, you guessed it, it's time to put out another album. 'King of Babylon' is its name.

Agent Scully is very much looking forward to it

Does it follow on from Pantheon? No, it sounds nothing like its predecessor. It's got more in common with the '....Satan' album. I really went for a vintage, late 70's sort of vibe on this album, generating some old school guitar tones which required me to approach my playing a bit differently.

It'll be out sometime soon, either preceded or succeeded by a 'hit single' wink.gif

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

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
