Hi Ben!
Could you send me the backing tracks for the awesome Vibrato Odyssey lessons (all 4).
I couldn't find them on the site.

That would be awesome,
Thanks! \m/

Maybe it would be a good idea to create an extra thread with all the backing tracks to your lessons.
And a private question: Since you have a big tattoo on your arm: how long did it take to make that tat, and did it hurt? Just asking cause I'm gonna get my first tattoo in 4 weeks...been waiting for 9 years now to get one smile.gif

Interesting idea.. do any of the other instructors do that ?

I can't remember the actual time but it was somewhere around 3 hours ! It hurt in places, but it really is something you can get used to. The most difficult part is probably when it starts and you think 'Oh, I don't know if I can handle much of this..' but then that goes away and you're fine. Where on your body are you getting it ?

The after care is the most annoying part, but my best advice is honestly to use Vaseline ( I know, giggle giggle !) to keep moisture in the skin so the tattoo doesn't crack. When it heals more and forms a scab it will crack of it's own accord naturally but that's to be expected. If you have any more questions about it feel free to ask smile.gif

Thanks Ben!
About the BT thread: Adrian and Marcus Siepen have such threads in their personal boards.
I am getting a tattoo on my right shoulder and upper arm, next week the tattoo artist and I are going to make a sketch on paper, and on february 8th is the big day.

Cool, I might try that !

Ah then I wouldn't worry too much about it hurting. Upper arm is probably one of the less painful places to tattoo. The annoying part is putting on or taking off clothes.. and going to bed ! But that's just fiddly things.. at least the hard part will be done by then ! Good luck for the 8th.. I miss getting them done. I'll have to get more one day ! P.S. I wanna see pictures ! cool.gif

Ben, would it be too much to ask for backing tracks also for your awesome Michael Schenker and Judas Priest lessons?
I started looking at the Schenker one a bit closer, although some passages are still a bit tricky for me, so don't expect a REC just yet. (-:
