Marko Pavic

Marko Pavic was born in Belgrade, but has been living and working in Italy for great many years.

Graduated at the "University of Music" of Rome, his well distinguished guitar playing merges the 70's style without neglecting the great riffs of the early 80's and this mix of elements characterizes his first album "Taste Some Liberty", released in 2005 by Anteo Records, a debut CD enriched by the presence of outstanding musicians such as Kee Marcello, guitar (Europe), Tony Franklin, bass (Blue Murder, Whitesnake), Vitalij Kuprij, keyboard (Artension, Ring Of Fire) and Daniel Flores, drums (Mind's Eye). With the new album “Unconditioned” released in September 2008, Pavic extend their horizons towards new musical boundaries, mixing the modern sound with classic rock.

“Unconditioned” was mixed and mastered at the Bohus Sound Studio, Sweden (Abba, Status Quo) by Tobias Lindell (Europe, Mustasch) and Dragan Tanaskovic (Evergrey, Meshuggah, In Flames, Goran Edman).

Lick of the week no. 25 - Ride 'n' Run

Hi and welcome to my 1st Lick of the Week. This lick is taken from the song called “Ride 'n Run”, from the album “Unconditioned” by Pavic. The full song is also available for free download. For this track tune down 1/2 step and tune down another whole step the low E string. From low to high strings you have: Db, Ab, Db, Gb, Bb, Eb (you won't use the low 6th string for the lead part, only for the rhythm). The solo is played over 2 chords, E and F major chords. The scale used for the solo is the E phrygian dominant (the 5th mode of the A harmonic minor scale) and the notes are: E, F, G#, A, B, C, D


Valve/Tube Amps

Valve/Tube Amps

The sound of the tube amp was always synonymous with a rock guitar tone. It is said that the sound of the tube amp is "warmer" compared to solid state amps like transistor or mosfet. The saturation of the tube increases gradually with the increase of the volume, this is something that doesn't happen with solid state amps, which by the way weren't even designed to produce distortion. In solid state amps the distortion is simulated with electronic circuits.
