Here’s a fun project I just finished. “Gravity” is from the 1st RiverMaya record which started out as a riff and a set of lyrics that I wrote and it ended up as one of 2 songs that was borne out of a group collaboration.
This video was shot with a GoPro as I recorded the parts. Here’s the list of gear used:
2005 Gibson Les Paul Special double cutaway, stock, Curt Mangan Signature Strings
Here’s a demo of the DiMarzio Illuminator 7 pickups installed on my 7-string Epiphone Flying V strung with Curt Mangan Fusion Matched Signature Strings. In this video, I play with crunch tone to showcase another aspect of these Illuminators. You’ll hear the amazing clarity of these pickups in both humbucker and coil split modes.
Just installed a fresh set of my Curt Mangan signature strings on this 2005 Gibson Les Paul Special Doublecut with stock P90 pickups. In this video I jam to a tune inside my head (haha) and explore the tones of a P90-equipped guitar, watch how I tailor my licks in reaction to the tones of the different pickup combinations.
Here’s a fun loop jam video featuring my Epiphone G-1275 double neck guitar with the Ditto X2 and MoVall pedals. The tremolo-picked lines are inspired by the rondalla, a Filipino ensemble of picked instruments. The 12- string neck works nicely for it. Enjoy, like and share!
Here are some outtakes from a session I filmed for a Filipino documentary about guitarists and their approach to scales. The audio is in Filipino and I added English subtitles for the non-Tagalog speaking folks out there.
The documentary was aimed for a non-guitar playing audience so I did my best to present the materials in the simplest and easiest way to understand as possible. Enjoy!
In this episode of FingerTIPS, I discuss and demonstrate how I incorporate diatonic triads in my lead playing. It’s a lengthy video so grab your guitar, get in the woodshed and work out the things I talk about in this video.
Amptweaker sent over some of their awesome pedals a couple of weeks ago. In this video I’ll talk a little bit about their features and will play through them to sample some of the tones they’re capable of.
