    Cover of Andy Timmons' version of Across the Universe - Preset included

    I heard Andy Timmons' absolutely gorgeous cover of The Beatles song "Across the Universe" recently and I just had to cover it myself!

    Hi guys, My issue is when attempting to use the Yeti Pro via USB to either record voice-overs or acoustic guitars, I get audible digital clicks, pops, cut-outs, etc. When doing voice overs, there will be parts of words that get cut out or there’s a little click/pop (not a plosion, I do have a...

    I started doing a cover of "5150" from VH

    Yesterday I was listening to the VH catalog at work and decided I was going to start looking at the riff to 5150 as it was always such a cool riff to me! So I just did a quick recording using a fantastic patch I tweaked from Mark Pritchard which you can find here...

    Kee Marcello/Europe 80s preset

    Hey everyone, I recorded this cover of Superstitious by Europe last night for fun! It's a patch I use all the time but I just cranked the mids and turned down the treble for this. I'm using two Ownhammer Friedman 412 V30 IR's (see screenshot below), one is the 57, the other the 121. All the...

    Mateus Asato - Let It Be cover

    I heard this song from Mateus Asato this afternoon and I had to figure it out. Full disclosure, fingerstyle playing is super hard for me (I have long fingers and really short thumbs, that's also why I hold my pick backwards). There are a few mistakes in here, but I just left them as I was pretty...

    Heart - "Alone" - Guitar Solo cover

    I heard Alone by Heart this afternoon and forgot just how perfect the guitar solo is here from Howard Leese. So when I got home I recorded the whole song (there's really only guitars during the choruses and solo). All the guitars here are me using my Suhr Modern and Axe-FX III. Lead tone is the...

    Queensrÿche - Operation Mindcrime Guitar Solo cover

    So last week a friend of mine asked me to learn the solo to the Queensrÿche classic song "Operation Mindcrime." I had never learned this one and when I started listening I figured I'd keep some of the licks and then throw a few of my own into it for fun. I used the preset in this thread...

    Dream Theater - "Take The Time" solo cover

    I've been on a Petrucci kick lately, and after my last cover, a friend asked me to do the solo from Take The Time, so here it is! This uses the same patch as the previous two Dream Theater covers I did (Octavarium and The Best of Times), so if you'd like the patch you can search my profile...

    Dream Theater - Octavarium solo cover

    I don’t know about you, but I love a good melody. Shredding is fun, but for me I can’t listen to a relentless barrage of non-stop shred for more than a song or 2. That’s why I’ve always loved John Petrucci as he’s always mixed the insane shred with beautiful, soaring melodies. One of my favorite...

    Megadeth - Symphony of Destruction solo cover

    To me, Marty Friedman wrote some of the most amazing and interesting solos ever. His phrasing, vibrato, note choice and his weird picking technique made him so incredibly unique, and Symphony of Destruction by Megadeth has one of my favorite solos from Marty. So after watching Rick Beato's What...

    Jimmy Herring solo "Crazy Fingers" cover

    Hey everyone! A couple years ago I recorded the amazing Jimmy Herring solo from the Jazz is Dead song “Crazy Fingers.” Over the last few weeks I’ve had a couple of my students start transcribing it by ear so I figured I’d re-record my cover again. This song is from the album Blue Light Rain...

    "Beat It" - Solo Cover

    So my girlfriend has been asking me for a long time to cover Eddie Van Halen’s solo to Beat It from Michael Jackson. I know it’s probably weird, but until now, I’ve never learned this!

    "Hangar 18" first couple solos

    So a couple years ago now I recorded a cover of Hangar 18 from Megadeth and did all the guitars using a backing track I found on youtube.

    What If Shawn Lane played on Don't Stop Believin?

    Tonight I went from trying to copy the amazing tone of Neal Schon, to then wondering what would it sound like if one of the greatest guitar players to ever live, Shawn Lane, played a quick little solo at the end of Don’t Stop Believin! I was envisioning his ending solo to Gray Pianos Flying, and...

    One of my fantastic students wanted to learn this great solo from the 80s classic “Here I Go Again” by Whitesnake, featuring a guitar solo from the great Adrian Vandenberg.

    An attempt at Shawn Lane's tone

    I've always wanted to be able to play like Shawn Lane, but I know that'll never happen, so I'd at least like to try and get in the ballpark of his tone. There's not much info out there on what he used for amp settings, I know he used Gjika amp, a Holmes Bluesmaster and I believe a tube driver...

    Joe Satriani- “Summer Song” complete cover

    So I finally finished recording the song, just in time for the first day of summer this Friday. You can see the previous post I made for the solo as there are screen shots of the preset, I used Ownhammer cabs so you'll need to play around with some factory cabs. I had 2 different delays, one for...

    Joe Satriani "Summer Song" solo cover

    If you’re old enough like me, you might remember back in the early 90s that a commercial for the Sony Walkman used to have the Joe Satriani song “Summer Song” as the background music. I got a guitar for my 13th birthday(that’ll be 27 years ago in a few days), and Joe was a huge inspiration to me...

    Inspired by Andy Timmons tone

    I actually recorded this last weekend, but forgot to post here. I was listening to him at the gym and when I came home I created a patch in my Axe-Fx III to simulate his clean(ish) tone, and I wrote this little progression. Not perfect, and obviously not done, but I just wanted to capture the...

    My attempt at a little Bohemian Rhapsody with my Axe-Fx III

    I’m a little ashamed to admit that after almost 27 years of playing, I’d never learned the solo to Bohemian Rhapsody till a couple days ago. I finally watched the movie Bohemian Rhapsody earlier this week(loved it!), and it got me on a Queen kick. I tweaked an existing patch on my Axe-Fx...

    Megadeth “Hangar 18”

    When I was a kid(before I even played guitar), my older brother played this album for me and I was hooked.

    Hanger 18 Marty Friedman tonematch (attempt)

    I found an isolated track of Marty Friedman from Hanger 18 and I attempted to tone match it using the HBE amp sim.

    Dream Theater - Fatal Tragedy full cover

    Just for "fun" last night I decided to record all the guitar parts using a backing track from youtube. This song is tough, my playings not perfect, but it was a good workout trying to get this one done. I used 2 patches on my Axe FX II(using latest quantum 2.0), one from vitor mancini and one...

    Metropolis Pt 1 Tone match

    I just recorded a quick bit of the intro up to the verse, this is a tone match I made earlier today. I know the playing isn't amazing and I have no tremolo set up on the guitar I recorded it on, just a quick demo. Preset is attached. For the intro, i used the same preset, just set the delay to...

    A couple of random questions

    The answers may lie in the manual but I just haven't had time to search through everything. 1. If i'm in sticky preset mode, can i still use the tuner without it banking down? 2. This one is critical for me, can I change the display on the AX8 to the name of the Preset i'm on in larger font...

    Power issues when traveling outside of the US

    I'll be playing in Singapore for 10 days next month, do I need to buy an adaptor for my Axe Fx II to use with their 230V power? Also I'm using a Ground Control Pro powered via phantom power from the Axe Fx through a 7pin midi cable, so I want to make sure I don't ruin anything. Any advice is...

    Anyone have a good 1/2 step pitch detune patch

    I'm struggling with setting up a decent 1/2 tune down patch and not getting a slight delay in the playback. I have a killer one set up on my Ultra which is on stage right now in Vegas and the Axe II is in my bedroom so I can't compare the settings. There are 2 points during my show where I have...

    I play in a cover band, do some original stuff on the side(no money to be made there though).
