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.

Marketplace update - Instructors accounts and lesson prices

It’s been more than a year since we launched the guitar lessons marketplace. We created a platform where anyone who is able to produce quality guitar lessons can set up a stall, offering benefits of their skill and wisdom to a guitar knowledge seeking public.

We set up a rigid structure for the standard of guitar lessons to insure high quality of instructional material and low cost for the users.

The take up for a position of instructor seemed to be greater than the ability to produce lessons.

In order to avoid overcrowding of our data base we have been obliged to amend the paragraph 14 of our terms and conditions.

How to create a professional guitar video - Part 1

In this series we'll be showing you how to make a video which will help you to stand out from the crowd.

From folk to metal - the story behind 7-string guitars
Seven and eight string guitars are quite a staple in today's metal music, being used by bands like Meshuggah, Fear Factory, Scar Symetry, Periphery and many others. From progressive, rhythmic and technically challenging pieces to unashamed down tuned brutality, these guitars seem to have been carved to cater for the heavy riff hungry hordes of the heavier side of rock ever since Steve Vai's Universe first appeared on the scene. Their true origin and applications, however, go far beyond such a restrictive set of musical genres.
Live4guitar marketplace update - Free video guitar lessons

We have some good news. Now there is a new category at The Guitar Lesson Marketplace.
