Drop C What a fun song to play. These guys have been blowing my mind for the last year or so. GO SEE THEM LIVE. You won't regret it. They have about the biggest stage presence you'll ever see out of three dudes. As always, this song does not belong to me. It belongs to Whores.. If you like the song, then go buy their records and see them live. I promise you won't be disappointed. Here's a link to the official video for this song: https://youtu.be/MgcSe12xdds

Long time no see. Sorry about the dry socket on the feed here. Time gets away from us all. What we have here is Jackass In The Will Of God by EyeHateGod. I'm tuned in C standard. The guitar is a really crappy Kingston I paid almost nothing for many years ago. It sucks. The body sucks. The neck sucks. The neck pickup, though, for whatever reason sounds huge and nasty. I mostly use this guitar for fuzzy indie rock tunes where the intonation and tuning stability isn't as much of an issue. Obviously I do not own this song. It belongs to EyeHateGod. If you like it, then you should buy their records and go see their shows.

C# Standard tuning People do things for a number of reasons. I recorded this video for the best one of all: because I bloody well wanted to. Besides, it seems like everyone who goes down the path of learning to play this kind of music on the guitar is obligated to learn at least one Black Sabbath song. This one is mine. I'm on the Kingston again because i still haven't finished building my new guitar and still haven't put the Epi back together. No solos on this as per usual. I had enough trouble learning everything else. Also, as per usual, this song does not belong to me. It belongs to Black Sabbath. If you like it (and I can't imagine why you wouldn't) then you should buy their records (which you should already own, if you don't.) This video is for entertainment and educational purposes only.

I'm playing this one in Drop C I might well have bitten off a little more than I could chew with this one, ha ha. I chose this one to work on faster pick and palm muting work. It's definitely a workout. Matt Pike plays in C standard. I'm not Matt Pike. I'm still pretty new to this style of playing. As always (except for that one time), this song does not belong to me. It belongs to High On Fire. If you like this tune - and why wouldn't you - then you should support the band by buying their stuff and going to their shows. You won't be disappointed. This video is for educational/entertainment purposes only. Oh... and also so I could feel like I was on stage with the band for a minute or two.

I kinda wrote a rhythm part for this. I skipped the leads, mostly because I'm not a lead player. C standard tuning. Obviously this song doesn't belong to me. It belongs to High on Fire. If you like the song, then you should support the band by buying their records and going to their shows. If you like this video, then please "like" the video.

Drop C tuning. Here is the play along video for my first original piece of metal mayhem. I wrote and produced this song and played all the instruments and provided lyrics and vocals. The only thing I did not contribute to this song is a solo. If it sounds like it needs a guitar solo in the center section, well, that's because it does. Drop me a line in the comments section if you are interested in playing/recording a guitar solo for this tune. I'll drop a link to an mp3 you download of the original song. You record the solo or, for that matter, a video of you playing the solo and hit me back up. Maybe I'll put the 5 best solos in a video for a vote. I'm thinking about turning this into a larger crowd-sourced metal album project. This is the first sort of experiment. Unlike my other videos, this song belongs entirely to me.
