Jason Becker Benefit - Not Dead Yet! Part 3
At last we reach the final part of our coverage on the Jason Becker Not Dead Yet 2011 festival. Hopefully you've enjoyed what I've been able to share with you so far and hopefully this has spurred you to go out and check out some of these guys. So far we've covered some pretty hot names like Andy James, and Daniele Gottardo but these guys are samll fish compared to the names we have in this last instalment; so read on and be inspired. There's a lot to tell you about the artists involved in this part of the show, but as always we're here for Jason, so allow me a minute to highlight some ways in which you can get involved and help out.
Interview with Tommy Emmanuel
Tommy Emmanuel is nothing short of an enigma. He's one of the most sublime guitarists I've ever listened to and that's probably because unlike most guitarists with technique to die for, Tommy chooses to use his powers for good (music) rather than evil (self indulgence). You could think of him as a superhero, setting an example for us all and reminding us why we started playing in the first place. Perhaps Tommy is the hero Jerry Reed was singing about, he's our swinging little Guitar Man! Tommy's skills haven't gone unnoticed though and he's one of only 4 players given the title C.G.P. (Certified Guitar Player) by the legendary Chet Atkins.
Jason Becker Benefit - Not Dead Yet! Part 2
Here we are, back for part two on the Jason Becker "Not Dead Yet 2011" show in Amsterdam. Part one saw some great players that you may not know of, along with a couple of big names. This part will feature some of the biggest names in the game, who need no introduction. There are some many players here with such unique voices I couldn't help but include some of their greatest licks just so you can dig a little deeper into their style. And no article on Jason would be complete without some coverage of the master's licks, so read on for an analysis of some of Jason's greatest recorded moments - just don't let it stop here!
Jason Becker Benefit - Not Dead Yet! Part 1
I've been playing guitar for a very long time now, and during that time I've been through everything from punk, rock and shred to country, funk and jazz. In each of these styles there are names that come up again and again and they're all names I've spent a lot of time studying, but throughout college there was one name that dominated my complete being, one name that displayed nothing short of technical mastery and effortless beauty. A name that was ahead of the game by a decade when he was 16 and one that continues to push guitarists to be the best they can. That name is Jason Becker.
How to create a professional guitar video - Part 4
Never have two men worked so hard on one project (This may be a slight exaggeration), but I can honestly say Emir and myself have poured our hearts and days into this project, so ladies and gentlemen, I give you the conclusion to our series on creating professional guitar videos - editing.
Lick of the week no. 20 - Kotzen Style Pentatonics
Hi everybody - I'm back with another legato/tapping lick, this time using A minor pentatonic. Although quite a 'vanilla' sounding scale, the idea is to create an interesting effect using the legato/tapping technique.

Mike Stern Interview and Lesson
One of the best things about my job is that recently I've been given the opportunity to sit down and talk to some of the players that had such a dramatic effect on my playing. Imagine my excitement when I heard Mike Stern was playing 3 consecutive nights in London. Needless to say I had to get tickets to those shows and try to line up an interview with the man himself.

What follows is a combination our interview, some words of advice and exercises from his clinic and some of the stories Mike shared in the cab.

How to create a professional guitar video - Part 2

Welcome back to the second part of our series on creating a professional quality video. If you missed part one, you can check that out here. The goal of this particular instalment is to walk you through the process of creating a backing track. This isn't essential for creating a video but it is essential if you're going to be doing your own material or are looking to create something for the Live4Guitar marketplace.
