We got a winner for the @GuitarWank podcast!

Some time ago we partnered up with the @GuitarWank podcast (read more about that here). It’s a great listen by monster guitar players Scott Henderson and Bruce Forman and hosted by Troy MacCubbin.

In April the guys at GuitarWank launched a competition and the winners could win some awesome guitar prizes. And one of the top prizes was a free license of our very own software! Anyone who bought a GuitarWank mug or t-shirt could send in a photo with it to make a chance of winning.
Needless to say a lot of creative entries made…

And below you can see a video of me playing the main solo at half the speed. You’ll hear the sound as it plays over Riffmaster Pro at that speed, while you see me playing the guitar along as practice.

Hopefully this will inspire you to do the same as well!

3 Easy Scales, 3 keys playing over a backing track for practice

What i find useful is changing the key of the backing track a few different times usingRiffmaster pro iphone app to give myself opportunities to play the scales in different positions on the guitar.
While I’m still playing the same scale shapes and same licks in different keys – the “sound” of the key can sometimes give me different ideas on the approach to the notes I play.
