Here's the Major/minor/modes scale patterns 3 notes per string. Let's say that you get on you tube and type in C Ionian backing track and find one you wish to play over. You'll have to have knowledge of your keys, but C is the easiest one to start with because they are all natural notes...C D E F G A B....just use that order to attach to your scale patterns.mC Ionian, D Dorian etc...REMEMBER THAT YOU CAN PLAY ALL PATTERNS OVER THIS BACKING TRACK...the sound of the mode is generated by the chord progression in the backing track so ALL 7 PATTERNS WILL SOUND C IONIAN!! Have fun and enjoy! musical with these pattern...bend, slide, run, repeat phrases etc....

We played The Dirty Dog bar on 6th street on Saturday. The Grandmiester continues to amaze me. 40W tube power - I turned the master "up" to 3 because I was being told by the crowd they could not hear me. HOLY HELL it sounded great. Thank you so much for turning me on to this killer amp!!!!

....a text sent to me from Gready Hunter from Whiskey Hangover (Godsmack Tribute).

Thanks Gready!!!

We are full on stocked up with Hughes and Kettner amps and cabs!! If you haven't jammed through one of these absolutely amazing amps, then you have no idea what you're missing!! Believe the HYPE!! Come in and see me and i will give you the tour!!


Judas Priest

Praying for you Glenn

Ten years ago Glenn was diagnosed to have the onset of the early stages of Parkinson’s - from then until recently Glenn has lived his life as the great heavy metal guitar player he has always been, maintaining by his own definition a standard of quality and performance that is incredibly important.

Right now Glenn is able to play and perform some of the Priest songs that are less challenging but due to the nature of Parkinson's progression he wants to let you all know that he won't be be touring as such -

True to the metal spirit of 'the show must go on' Glenn has requested Andy Sneap to fly the flag on stage for him

“I want everyone to know that it’s vital that the Judas Priest tour go ahead and that I am not leaving the band - it’s simply that my role has changed.
I don’t rule out the chance to go on stage as and when I feel able to blast out some Priest! So at some point in the not too distant future I’m really looking forward to seeing all of our wonderful metal maniacs once again”

Rob, Richie, Ian and Scott have this to say:

“We have been privileged to witness Glenn’s determination and steadfast commitment over the years, showing his passion and self belief through the writing, recording and performing sessions with Priest - he is a true metal hero!
We are not surprised by Glenn’s insistence that we complete the Firepower tour and thank Andy for joining us to make Glenn’s wishes become real -
As Glenn has said we also can’t wait to have him with us at any time any place on the road.....
We love you Glenn!” 02/11/2018

Fender HM Strat - Wikipedia

Great information on the legendary HMStrat by Fender....absolutely love mine The Fender HM Strat was an electric guitar produced by Fender Musical Instruments from 1988 until 1992. A relatively radical departure from Leo Fender's classic Stratocaster design, it was Fender's answer to Superstrats produced by manufacturers such as Jackson Guitars and Ibanez. HM stands for heav...


40 years ago, he and his bandmates released a record that changed the way rock guitar was played...and still influences countless guitarists to this day and most likely will for generations to come! Time to spin some VH1!
