Guitar Nation 2010 - London Olympia Day 2
On the 2nd day we arrived early as we wanted to catch up with some people that we thought members of the L4G family should know about. We spoke with Yannis Anastasakis from Jam Pedals, Marcel Coenen who was there with Bo-El guitars, Terence Hansen who was performing at the main stage and demonstrating his 2 neck acoustic guitar at the Heeres guitars stand, Avid about the Eleven Rack interface/amp simulator, Rotosound , JPF Amplification and many more. Most of these are going to be discussed in separate reviews and interviews coming soon on the L4G blog. So let’s have a look at what else was happening on the 14th of November at Guitar Nation 2010 at the Olympia center.

Jam Pedals

Jam Pedals
Jam pedals are high end quality vintage style guitar pedals. With their unique design and sound approach they attracted artists like John Abercrombie, Greg Koch, David Hidalgo, Anthony Jackson, Jonny Lang, Benrie Marsden, and Kenny Wayne Shepherd to name a few, and it’s been a rapidly growing company around the world. The company was started in 2005 by Yannis Anastasakis, with whom I happen to be very good friends with since my early rocking teenage years playing guitar in the same town but in different bands. We caught up with him to see what Jam Pedals are all about.
Blackstar HT Blackfire Gus G. signature Pedal
Blackstar is a fairly new rapidly growing amplification company based in Northampton, UK, which makes series of valve pedals and amplifiers. The company consists largely of ex Marshall employees. On their artist roster they include Gus G. (Firewind, Ozzy Osbourne), Silenoz (Dimmu Borgir), Reb Beach (Winger, Whitesnake, ex- Dokken), Fredrik Akesson (Opeth) to name a few. We went to the Wembley Guitar Centre to have a look at the HT Blackfire Metal Valve distortion. The HT Blackfire is the Gus G. signature pedal. Let’s have a closer look.
Dean Guitars - Get Your Wings
Recently we have visited the Dean guitars Head Quarters in the UK due to my collaboration with Dean Guitars. We drove to Basildon in Essex UK to visit Bill Lewington Warehouse, who are the official Dean Guitar Distributors for the UK and the 2nd largest Dean Distributors in the world alongside Dean USA. Dean UK is also running a few events every year with some of the Dean Endorsees (D.O.A. UK, Dimebag Memorial Tour and more). We caught up with Matthew Speed (Dean Guitars Artist Program) and he showed us around the warehouse. We had a look at few guitars and were lucky enough to get a DEAN guitar as the 1st prize for the 3rd Live4Guitar competition, which is up and running. The winner will be getting His Dean guitar shipped from Dean themselves. So lets have a closer look.
3rd Live4guitar competition
Hi all. We've got something cool to keep you busy over the upcoming holidays. Here is the 3rd competition with even more exciting prizes and backing track. This time we have the famous theme from the "Godfather" for you to play it your own way. Again maestro Dragianni created the track. The prizes are now a bit more expensive. That's our Christmas and New Year present for 3 best takes. 1st place will get Dean ML XM guitar shipped directly from Dean, 2nd place will get Ampitube iRig and the 3rd place will get many useful things for the guitar (capo, srtings, the swipe, 5m lead). All 3 will get Live4guitar t-shirt as always.

Enjoy the backing and happy holidays.

Interview with Mattias
Mattias "IA" Eklundh is an incredibly talented guitar player from Sweden. Finding his own voice on the instrument made him go around the world, sign to Favored Nations record label (Steve Vai's label), have his own signature Caparison guitar model, run the Freak Guitar camp and get recognized as unique and Identifiable player of the 21st century. We caught up with him to ask him about his music career and his steps all the way to the road less traveled.
Guitar Nation 2010 - London Olympia Day 1
Guitar Nation 2010 is a newly introduced guitar exhibition that was held in the Olympia Exhibition Centre in London on the 13th and 14th of November. The Olympia Exhibition Centre is well renowned in London for holding exhibitions of all kinds. The exhibition was sponsored by: Allianz Insurance, Guitar, Guitar World, Bass Guitar, Acoustic magazines, alongside Licklibrary, Surface Festival 2011 and XFM. Live4Guitar didn’t want to miss this great opportunity to check out some cool gear and some amazing demonstrators, so we made sure we attended both days of the event. We met a lot of friends and supporters there. We met cool new guitarists and performers and experienced many new products that you won’t yet see on the everyday market or at your local music shop. So lets have a look at what happened on the 13th of November.
Amplitube iRig
As mentioned in my first Amplitube 3 review - Ik Multimedia is one of the world's leading companies in guitar amp simulation. Quite recently they released an interface for iPhone (3G, 3GS, iPhone 4), iPad and iPod touch (Generation 2-3), the iRig. iRig gives you the chance to have fully featured guitar tool in your pocket. By downloading one of the Amplitube versions (Free, LE, Full) from the app store you have a guitar tuner, metronome, amps, stompboxes, cabinets, microphones, a track recorder and a mastering plugin in your pocket for a few Bucks.
Live4guitar Marketplace - One Day Wonder or a Serious Platform?
Six weeks ago to the day, Live4guitar launched The Guitar Lessons Marketplace, featuring 12 guitar instructors and 12 guitar lessons. Since then the number of people willing to teach guitar has more than doubled and so has the number of lessons. 160 guitar lessons were bought by 137 registered members. When we look at these numbers in terms of growth, they present an encouraging trend. Let’s analyse them in more detail.
