Below is Chris Brooks' answer to the question, "Is the fingering more cerebrial (sp?) or mechanical???" on youtube regarding the Kryptica video.
"i don't think too much about either when playing - I try to get that down in practice and set it to the back of my mind when playing. I mean...
G'day. Chris Brooks here.
Here's a video of me improvising over a track used by Vinnie Moore in a guitar magazine quite a few years back. I did a few takes but I liked the way this one started out the best.
Coming soon will be a performance of "Kryptica" from "The Master Plan". That one was...
Though I've heard of him a lot before, I've been listening to a lot of Journey for the past few months. His playing is awesome, no doubt about it. Out of my top 3 favourite guitarists, he's #3 (after Vai and Metheny of course). :)
I'm very interested in getting 'I On U', but alas, we don't get...
This is a Pod Xt

If you have an Xt and want this tone..just pop me an email..
If you think a mic'n a tube amp is better ,Please tell why...
I guess it's been done before, but I thought it was high time to discuss your favorite pick for the ABSOLUTE MOST TERRIBLE GUITARIST you've ever hated.
I'll kick it off with just a few of my fav's:
Jerry Garcia -Dead
Head - Korn
C.C. Deville - Poison
Curt Kobain -Nirvana
Ace Freeley - Kiss...
Dave and the rest of you
Just wondering if any of you care to share the names of any unknowns or relative unknowns, up and commers etc. whom you have seen/heard play and found the sound refreshing.
I guess I will go out on a limb and start the list with Dave Weiner and Eric Sardinas. Most...
Just caught Europe at the apollo, I got tickets as I've always wanted to see them live. OK now I thought they'd be good but these guys were fecking amazing, they were probably the best band i've seen live. Their new stuff kicks ass, it's de-tuned which I don't normally like. Check out their...
What are some of you guys' favorite badass but obscure guitar instrumentalists?
Two that I like are Joe Stump and Marc Pattison
Just wondering what other underground-ish shredders I'm missing out on...
i got my first PAYING session work last week at a local studio (Mirror Image) and it went very well for not having anything really prepared.
a contemporary christian album that needed ( a really BIG kick of adrenalin!) solos and rhythm work on three songs was the job. i was worried about using...

This topic should get temper's flared , blood pressure up, and hemorroids swelled and itching.....
Who is your favorite 80's hair metal band?
You must represent only one please!!
Don't list 27, and say you can't choose!!!
Narrow it down to one, and defend your reason!!
I saw many topics in this forum that critisize yngwie malmsteen. Ok you may not like it that much but you have to respect him. Coz he plays better than you do. If you were better you would be known worldwide. He sold millions of albums and he has millions of fans all around the world. And...
Okay, I'm going to try this - right click and save and whatnot. This is a one-take live improv (Aug 9/03) over the nice backing track that's out there for 'Cause We Ended As Lovers, a Jeff Beck (?) song that I don't know, as I haven't heard it before. But the track, cord progressions, are just...
Damn this show was excellent!!!! Amy's vocals were perfect, and the performance was just awesome.
They are really growing as performers, and after seeing them a second time I can see that they will go far.
They played nearly their entire album, plus some older, unreleased...
I am sitting here playing some ynvwie malmsteen and petrucci licks(im 15!) and I was just wondering how good all of you jemsiters are? How much time to you practice, and do you use a metranome? BE HONEST!!!
