    Metallica - "Master of Puppets" cover

    LOL the too much caffeine setting :laughing: Glad you liked it, much appreciated! I'm not much of a pickup connoisseur but I absolute love what I get out of the EMG 81.

    Metallica - "Orion" cover

    I actually tracked this with the 2, just a few weeks before I got the 3 but never got around making a video for it. I thought I posted it in the correct forum, my bad. :rolleyes:

    Opeth - "Ghost of Perdition" cover + preset

    Hey guys, I've been listening to a lot of Opeth (again) lately and I thought I should do a cover of one of my favorite songs by them. At first I thought of doing the whole song but I chickened out because that would be a massive undertaking. So I ended up doing the first part up until the...

    Metallica - "Orion" cover

    Thank you guys for all the feedback! I put a lot of effort into this and it's really cool to get a feel for how it's perceived by fellow guitarists. I actually recorded this before I got the III but never got around making a video for it until recently. It sounds great to my ears so I never...

    Metallica - "Orion" cover

    Metallica's Orion is truly a masterpiece. I don't use that word lightly or often or for many things but I honestly believe it applies here. It is so masterfully crafted that I can't really put it into words. It's a very special song to me and I think it kinda shows when I play it. I tried to my...

    Metallica - "Master of Puppets" cover

    I just added the main rhythm preset on the original post. I'm running FW14 on my AFX2 so I don't know how it sounds with the latest firmware. Hopefully it still sounds killer!

    Metallica - "Master of Puppets" cover

    Thank you guys for the feedback, I really appreciate it! 🤘 I recorded the bass with the Axe and I programmed the drums in Cubase. I used a custom kit from The Metal Foundry library of Superior Drummer and really tried to give it a hint of vibe from the original. Here's some other random info...

    Metallica - "Master of Puppets" cover

    Glad you liked it guys! We really had so much fun making this and having a positive response makes it even better. Thank you, much appreciated! Yeah we don't take ourselves too seriously :laughing: We take what we do seriously but we try to have fun while doing it, otherwise what's the point?

    Metallica - "Master of Puppets" cover

    If you're gonna cover one Metallica song, it may very well be the title track from their iconic Master of Puppets album. I've been putting off doing a Metallica cover for so long since I knew I wanted to do this song before anything else and I wanted to give it my best as I'm a huge Metallifan...

    Axe-FX III High Gain Showcase #4 - Mesa Boogie

    Glad you liked the video guys! Recto1 #1 preset is my favorite as well btw, I absolutely love that tone. I never thought of that but until you guys brought it up. Now I feel like doing a cover of "As I am", at least the parts I can play :laughing: Thanks for all the feedback, it's great to...

    Axe-FX III High Gain Showcase #4 - Mesa Boogie

    Lots of people asked me about doing a Mesa Boogie video and here it is. I think I dialed in some really good tones this time around and I was quite surprised with what I could get out of the IIC+ and Triaxis models. Having no experience with either of them I didn't know what to expect. Even...

    Megadeth - This Was My Life cover

    I don't know about you but I love me some Megadave! I've wanted to cover this song for quite some time now as I feel that it doesn't get the love it deserves. I'm really really happy with the result! Guitars were recorded using my Peavey 6505+ Axe-FX 2 patch. For the bass I used my metal bass...
