    Has anyone tried the "Introduction to Jazz Blues Guitar Volume 1" eBook from the Jazz Guitar Online site [http://www.jazzguitar.be]? Before plunking down a twenty-spot, I thought I would ask if anyone else here has given it a go and what they think. Thanks in advance.

    Hey guys, I recently made a few jazz fusion backing tracks. Let me know what you think of them.

    I just recorded this improvisation today. So yeah, some people still say that the Jem is meant to play "Vai stuff" only, but I'm particularly fond of the fat neck DiMarzio Evolution tone for these things. Here's the video:

    I just finished my last album "Assorted Random Notes". Here we are recording a track named "Falken" In 2 days I will travel with The Aristocrats opening for them in all their Spanish concerts. Sure it will be a blast! :) The CD is available through my site: www.rufes.com Hope you like it!
  8. Pickups & wiring
    This is kind of a dual theme thread about two guitars and two pickup combinations. GUITAR A: I have a Epiphone Les Paul Standard Plus (removed the neck finish - now a bright guitar) in which i have the SD JB4 / Jazz combo but i find the jazz pickup too bright and could use a bit more output...

    www.youtube.com/watch?v=3JqipoqRTmI Here is my explanation, which I should have gone more into in the video: Here is a quick lick in E minor that will work well with a pentatonic style line. It's not technically a pentatonic lick by itself, but I envisioned it leading into one, so that's the...
  10. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    I have customized my JS1600 in the past year but have never played it since. I swithced to this guitar today and found that low E string (bass side) is to boomy and even louder than outhers. All other 5 strings are well balanced, but this bass E string. When i get bass to low on the amp to get...
  11. Gear, Equipment, Recording & Off Topic
    Hey guys, so I made a quick video showcasing some lesser known Jim Dunlop picks, as well as their signature model picks and some old favorites. This is part 1 of two part pick shootout. In this video, I go over some of the picks I am trying out. I wanted to check out all of their incarnations of...

    Might not fit all ears...or ears that haven't been invited, but this is nothing but the real deal.
  14. Classified Ads: Guitars and Gear
    Hey guys, I'm selling Seymour Duncan JB and Jazz pickups. They are both in good shape with around 7'' of lead. I'm just trying to clear out some stuff I have sitting around; I need $! I'm looking to get $45 shipped/ paypal'ed for each one. I'll even toss in screws and springs. JB Jazz...
  15. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    So I was using my old Ibanez RG270, then i wanted to try an idea. Block the trem and go for C# Standard tuning, as lo-trs 2 can not stay in tune. I was using gibson strings for the last month, 0.10 's. Of course string tension wasn't enough, and low end wasn't that great, but overall no...
  16. Pickups & wiring
    hi everyone, New to this forum. I am actually mainly a Strat/Tele classic rock/blues guy, but ever since the original FGM100 (the fluorescent yellow Frank Gambale signature model) came out and I had a chance to play one over 20 years ago, I have lusted for a Sabre body Ibanez. I'm now the proud...

    I'm excited to announce that one of the companies that I teach for, Spotlight Studios, will be hosting a Carl Verheyen clinic Sunday, June 10th in Woodinville, Washington. It's about 20-25 minutes North East of Seattle. It will be an early clinic, since he will be playing Portland that same...

    I was looking for a new guitar in the $100-$300. I know I want a mahogany body, double locking trem, two bright, high-output humbuckers, and finish that is not black (preferably not white either, but white is better than all black). I was looking at the GRGA32T and the GRG270DXB, but I can't...
  20. All Other Guitars (including Prestige)
    Just picked up one of these about a month ago because I needed a fixed bridge 7 string that was versatile and could be right at home playing heavy rock and metal and something I could play Jazz and George Van Eps solos on (side note: check him out! he's a beast.) The only issue I'm having is...
