Today was have some bad ass videos from Evan Brewer as he plays some tracks from the new The Faceless album. Then we have the full band performing the new BTBAM track “Telos” and then Scale the Summit bassist and guitarist play through a couple of tracks as well. It’s a sexy progressive metal edition of Fretboard Friday! Enjoy!
Gypsyhawk does a triple threat with their song “Hedgeking”! Then Tosin Abasi from Animals As Leaders shows you how to play some “Somnarium” from the album Weightless. Lastly, finishing up this segment is Mark Michell from Scale The Summit, playing through the song “Drifting Figures” on his 6 string bass guitar. Enjoy the jams! Learn to play something new! Keep practicing and improve your axe skills!
Mike O’Hara of Splattered Entrails rips through his song “Tonguing Shears”. After that, watch and listen as Stealing Axion performs a couple of their songs. Two great bands, two different sounds. Plenty of headbanging to be had. Enjoy!
Today’s focus is a man named Charlie Parra del Riego who has created some bad ass covers of some of the best music to ever come out of my childhood. From Power Rangers to Street Fighter, Charlie does it all and does it well!!!! He has originals and a ton more covers on his Facebook Fan Page AND his Youtube page too. Be sure to check them out! Charlie is a wonderful guitarist and also an obvious video game fanatic. I love it. Fan for life!!! Be sure to check out my Youtube playlist and enjoy!!!
Today’s Fretboard post is brought to you by shredaholics Francesco Artusato, Rings of Saturn & Allegaeon. the Rings of Saturn video is not of the best quality and it may be annoying to listen to since he is quite a technical player. Now for Allegaeon, they are supreme kick ass #1, well all of these guys today are extreme masters of the axe but Allegaeon are just mega awesome. They play 8 strings and rock the hell out of those things. Enjoy both of the uploads they have provided for us!
I Declare War’s “I, tormentor” is a crushing deathcore song featuring slower paced picking techniques and rhythm work. Tuning – G# D# G# C# F# A# D#
I still kick myself for missing out on the Scale The Summit shows I missed a few weeks back. I was just getting out of the wedding hurricane of events and when it all settled down and it was time to get back to work…the show had already passed. Dammit!!
Anywho, this week’s focus is Chris Letchford, the ultra talented riff lord for the band Scale The Summit. Watch these videos, take notes and study. Also, buy the tab books here!!! Enjoy.
First up is Hal playing through his track “Void”. One of my personal favorites off of the new EP. There are no tabs but just pay attention to his fret hand and you can pick up how he is playing this track. I’ve already done this on my own and I’m a noob, so no excuses.
Next is Dean Lamb of Archspire playing “Rapid Elemental Dissolve” and….good luck. This song is technical as fuck. 8 string Ibanez technical death metal for you. Just sit back and watch the wonder of Dean shredding this song up. Enjoy!
First fretboard warrior up is Mark Morton playing through some Lamb of God riffs from their latest album “Resolution”. A good album with some catchy ass riffs going on so watch and follow along.
Thall. Cannot find tabs so either just enjoy the video or study the video and play along. Have a good weekend!!
Bow down to the lords of the low end. This week’s focus on Fretboard Friday is Evan Brewer and Nick Schendzielos doing what they do best on their bass guitars, rip that shit up!!! Just watch and learn. I highly recommend watching these even if you don’t play bass, you’ll respect them a little more I’m sure of it.
