“Slither” live cover with John Borja

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.

Enjoy!

Re-recording Rivermaya’s “Gravity”

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

Enjoy!

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.
