  6. My band, Vantage Point, have released a new tune to the digital streaming world, called Puffin Killer, and can be heard on Spotify, Deezer, Apple, Amazon, etc. https://open.spotify.com/track/7JKfYxBTlEsXIqRgh9Fb6m?si=__AnZW8bRYqzM3monzJkQQ While our lead guitarist has been spending his time in isolation playing some famous guitar solos, here is his attempt at, Wasted Years, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7bZW3VkGA9M
  7. Guitar is my principal instrument, currently have four electrics and one acoustic. Also have one bass guitar that I bought second hand in 1994 and still use to this day. Have started rehearsing with a band on the bass as well in the last year, so hoping to get a lot more use out of it in the near future.
  8. Not sellers regret, more, took to the skip and got rid of regret. My first electric guitar that I bought 2nd hand for £60, hadn't played it in years and no longer worked properly. So I disposed of it. There are times I regret, and wish I'd held on to it for nostalgic purposes.
  9. Some footage of a guitar solo recording session for a new track.
  10. We've just backed a singer, Mercy Breheny, on her debut single release, Just When I Wasn't Lookin'. Is available on all the usual digital platforms.
  11. We've just released our new EP, Collision Course, the title track is an instrumental with lots of guitar going on.
  12. Have been back in the studio working on a cover of, I Think We're Alone Now.
  13. We have just released a new EP, On the Road, four tracks including a cover of the Priest classic Metal Gods.
  14. We released our debut album, Daredevil on the Shore 11 years ago today ... To celebrate here is a clip of us playing the first two tracks from the album 5 years later. It remains the only time our lead guitarist has turned up to a gig with his triple neck guitar ...
  15. Haven’t bought one for years, but I always thought Guitar Techniques was best for improving guitar playing, just seemed a bit more grown up than Total Guitar and provided more proper lessons as opposed to just transcriptions. But a lot could have changed since I last bought either, and with all the lessons and videos available on the internet, I’d have thought it would be difficult for the magazines to survive these days.
  16. I enjoyed it, lots of interesting things in there. Of the three programmes in the series though I thought that the drum one was best, while I wasn’t so keen on the one for bass guitar.
  17. I keep getting told off due to plectrums being found in the washing machine ...
  18. Along with music, building Lego is a big hobby of mine and I’ve managed to combine the two by putting my hand at stop motion videos and doing promos for the band. Just finished my 5th, using the Sydney Opera House set to pretend that the we played a gig on the other side of the world.
  19. Recently uploaded a promo video for a new recording by my band, Vantage Point. The song, Demon Stomp, isn't available outside of YouTube yet, but our four albums, and several singles/EPs can be found on all the usual digital platforms. The video was filmed on the roof of the Biscuit Factory in Leith, Edinburgh.
  20. I use D'addario strings have always found them to be fine, so I haven't gone out and tried too many others to be honest.
  21. Apologies, notice there is a thread for this in another forum, unfortunately can't see how to delete this topic.
  22. Anyone been to one of these Guitar Shows before? Unfortunately I am in London the weekend before, though that does coincide with Europe at the Royal Albert Hall, so will get to see John Norum. But I do quite fancy the idea of the Guitar Show, maybe have to think about putting it in my diary for next year. Not sure though about the description of Nita Strauss' career though, I understand how playing for Alice Cooper can fit in with a, "stellar career," but not sure being the member of a tribute band contributes in quite the same way, as good as they may be. https://www.loudersound.com/news/nita-strauss-added-to-uk-guitar-show-line-up
  23. A couple of other guitarists I really like that have so far not been mentioned, and a good chance they wouldn’t be ... Francis Rossi, obviously not classed as a guitar hero by any stretch of the imagination, but better player than the 3 chord ability he is tagged with, and some of his solos, I’m thinking Backwater, Whatever You Want, Too Close to the Ground, I find very tuneful and melodic. Chris Hayes, lead guitarist with Huey Lewis back in the day, think he has produced some fantastic guitar solos for pop songs, favourites are, Walking on a Thin Line, Back in Time & I Know What I Like.
  24. Not from a gig, but in rehearsals our lead guitarist has been having a go at some famous guitar solos to put up on yourtube page, here are a couple,
  25. Not a new video, but here is a clip of my band playing what is probably our most popular tune, 24 Hour Breakdown, a few years ago. I’m playing the rhythm guitar, leave all the solos to our other guitarist, Liam, who is infinitely better than me,
