Vintage V6 Reissued Sunburst Stratocaster Bias FX Demo Sound Review

I somehow managed to find a Vintage V6 Stratocaster. Vintage brand is a really successful guitar manufacturer that makes Strat and Tele clones at the highest possible quality and lowest possible price. It’s just amazing how these instruments sell at the entry-level market. It’s not easy to find one, but you should definitely check them out. Why? Because it’s very close to an original one with already upgraded hardware such as Wilkinson …

Ibanez AR300 Korea Fretless Guitar Melody

I always wanted to own a fretless electric guitar. And finally, I just went crazy and decided to get my trusty Ibanez AR300 which I have used in many of my videos here converted to a fretless one. I met Hakan Seçkin of Matt Guitars, Turkey and told him what I wanted. He had never done this to any guitar, but he just came up with loads of solution for my needs …

Groove Imam Part 1 Bluesy Salawaat Ahmed Tijani

I bumped into a video of Shaykh Ahmed Tijani Ben Omar, spreading positive vibes in a gospel context but within Islam and decided to edit his speech and singing so I could company him with my guitar and drums. Some people disliked it since they thought I was making fun of Islam. But that’s not true at all. I only liked his positive attitude and vibe so wanted to join him …

Here’s one of my favourite tunes by Queensryche. “I Don’t Believe in Love” is a great example of a perfect guitar duo that constantly compliments to each other during the track.

Queen is probably the reason I have started playing the guitar. I have been listening to Queen since 1996 and a really big fan 🙂 Here’s the guitar solo transcription of a great song called “You Don’t Fool Me” by Queen.

Fanfare Ciocarlia Que Dolor Trumpet Solo Guitar Cover

I always like to transcribe musical lines that are produced by other instruments rather than the guitar. All kinds of fretted (and sometimes fretless instruments as well) instruments have a similar approach and we sometimes get lost in its graphically easy-to-play attribute and try to play physical things rather than the music itself. Think about a trumpet player, they have to take a breath and play wisely most of the times. …

Secret Garden The Reel Guitar Cover

Secret Garden has been always one of my favourite bands even though it’s not guitar-related music. Their song called “The Reel” from their Earthsongs (2005) album just sounds like a shred guitar track 🙂 So I gave it a try. It’s one of the most physically demanding songs since you have a few patterns going on but for a long time to repeat on the guitar without hurting yourself. I used …

SX SST62 Stratocaster Review Demo Graphtech, DiMarzio Nut Upgrade

I always wanted to own a Strat but could never afford an original one and I was looking around what to choose without busting the bank. After I tested a lot of Strat copies from different brands such as Cort, Squier by Fender, Jay Turser and Stagg, I decided to get an SX one because apart from the hardware, it was the closest copy of a 60’s Strat. So got one and …
