Filipino singer John Borja has been making waves with his presence in Los Angeles recently and I’m glad to be part of his exciting musical journey! I really hope the Stone Temple Pilots snatch him up, they really should!
Here’s an audience video of us playing Velvet Revolver’s “Slither”, the whole band RIPPED it up!
- John Borja – vocals
- Perf De Castro – guitar
- Dodjie Garcia – guitar
- Dennis Diaz – bass
- Eddy Dagani – drums
I used my Chapman Guitars Ghostfret with DiMarzio Transition pickups and Curt Mangan signature strings running into my Victory Amps V30 head and cab. Never fails to deliver awesome tone! I lent Dodjie my Chapman ML-3 Traditional that also sounded great through the venue’s house amp.
In this video, I outline my favorite shape for the Minor 7th arpeggio and discuss how I use it on my playing. It’s a lengthy, in-depth video so grab your guitar and spend some time with me.
Here’s the unboxing and first play video of my Chapman Norseman!
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
- MIM Fender 60th Anniversary Telecaster, DiMarzio Area T pickups, Curt Mangan Signature Strings
- Warwick Thumb Bolt 5 string bass
- Avid Eleven Rack, Pro Tools, BFD2 drums, Presonus MP20 mic pre, Warm Audio WA76 compressor, ribbon mic
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.
