Shred This Too Competition Entry Recorded in London :)

Hey, this was one of the videos that I had recorded during my stay in London, UK. I had literally just my custom-made Erkan Sızarlar electric guitar loaded with Seymour Duncan Custom Custom on the bridge and Phat Cat on the neck position and also my Koch Pedaltone preamp. I was somehow able to manage to record this “Shred This Too!” competition entry just by having plugged my preamp into my …

Mazhar Alanson Benim Hala Umudum Var Guitar Solo Transcription

Mazhar Alanson‘s “Benim Hala Umudum Var” has a tasty great solo written and played by Rob Ten Bokum. Here’s my rendition of it. I recorded this by having plugged my custom-made Erkan Sızarlar electric guitar loaded with Seymour Duncan Custom Custom on the bridge and Phat Cat on the neck position straight into Koch Pedaltone preamp into my laptop via the microphone input. The heavy reverb that you’ll be hearing is …

Kenan Doğulu’s Kandırdım Unison Guitar Solo Transcription

Kenan Doğulu‘s track called “Kandırdım” has a great unison part and this is how you play it on guitar.

Europe Open Your Heart Guitar Solo Transcription

Any Europe fans? I must tell I’m a big fan, especially when Kee Marcello was in the band. I also like John Norum, but always prefer Kee Marcello. I think he’s one of the most unique and talented musicians I have ever listened to. All his solos are so melodic, and he can sing damn well! This time another melodic solo by him on a track called “Open Your Heart“. I …

Aziza Mustafa Zadeh Butterflies On Guitar Transcription

Aziza Mustafa Zadeh (a.k.a. The Queen of Jazz!) has been always a great inspiration for me personally. Even though I’m a guitar player, I was spending much more time listening to her rather than listening to guitar players 🙂 Obviously, it doesn’t make sense for many to transcribe her music on electric guitar, but her song “Butterflies” has a really good theme and I always wanted to play this on guitar, …

Marco Sfogli Larry Carlton Style Backing Track Solo Transcription

Here’s my note to note transcription of an excellent improvisation by Marco Sfogli on a Larry Carlton style backing track. I used my Erkan Sızarlar custom-made electric guitar with my Koch Pedaltone all-tube preamp. This time my guitar was also modded heavily by me 🙂 I had changed the pickups to Seymour Duncan Custom Custom on the bridge and Phat Cat on the neck position. Also, I had removed the black …

Solo Over Eighty Something BT With Koch Pedaltone

Hey, I recorded this back in 2008 with my lovely Koch Pedaltone all-tube preamp and an E-Bow Plus. The sounds you hear come from my computer speakers by going through Koch preamp then M-Audio Audiophile 24/96 PCI card and finally to Guitar Rig (for effects) and recorded in the digital domain but I also captured the sound with my camcorder and kinda mixed them together. I used my custom-made Erkan Sızarlar …

Deep Purple Sometimes I Feel Like Screaming Transcription

Around 2008, I was so into this song and spent lots of time transcribing it by ear. There were not many video resources back then. I think I had just made it harder to play with my tapping harmonics rather than gently touching and picking 🙂 I used my trusty Erkan Sızarlar custom-made electric guitar with Vox Tonelab LE directly going into my M-Audio Audiophile 24/96 PCI card. In addition, I …

Street Fighter Ken’s Theme On Guitar Transcription

Street Fighter fans? Don’t you think Ken’s stage music is the best and most motivating music ever? I tried to transcribe it on electric guitar and player over a MIDIesque backing track that I found on the internet. I used my trusty Erkan Sızarlar custom-made electric guitar loaded with Seymour Duncan JB and Jazz set with Vox Tonelab LE directly going into my M-Audio Audiophile 24/96 PCI card. As I mentioned …

Boss RC-2 Loop Station – A Quick Review

In this short review, I’d like to introduce you a couple of my oldest videos that I had done for Boss RC-2 Loop Station guitar looper pedal. I used to own one around 2006 and used it for a few years along with my Tech 21 Trademark TM60 1X12 guitar amp.

Shawn Lane Epilogue For Lisa Transcription

Any Shawn Lane fans? Wasn’t he a genius? I think he was. When I think about his music, talent and capabilities I’m just lost for words. Most of our legendary guitar heroes have stated that he was the most influential player ever. If you ever introduce him to one of your friends, they will probably tell you he is just a mechanic player. But if you listen to his albums, you’ll …

Andy Timmons There Are No Words Transcription

Back in 2007, I had attempted to play the song called “There Are No Words” by a great guitar player Andy Timmons. He is one of the most melodic and creative players on this planet. You should definitely check him out and don’t be fooled by this calm, laid-back song. He can do real magic with his guitar 🙂 I used my Erkan Sızarlar custom-made electric guitar loaded with Seymour Duncan …

Europe The Final Countdown Guitar Solo Transcription

Here’s Europe’s, probably the most famous song, The Final Countdown‘s guitar solo transcription. I made this around 2007 and I know it’s not that good. But I was learning and trying to transcribe everything which helped a lot. Obviously, I like Kee Marcello better, but John Norum also kicks ass with this song too! 🙂 The sounds you are hearing all come from Tech 21 Trademark 60 1×12 amp and my …
