from EVH GEAR
When Eddie Van Halen wanted a rig with “more gas in the tank,” we delivered in the form of the loud and lethal 5150IIIS. Custom-modded to suit EVH’s evolving tastes, this powerful all-tube head is packed with new features for tailoring your low end, including new independent rear resonance controls and increased gain on channels two and three.
In this video, the legendary guitarist puts the 5150IIIS’ deep bass contour and seamless switching to the test. Experience this seething addition to EVH’s own touring arsenal, with a “blackout” cosmetic treatment inspired by his main Wolfgang® guitar.
i wanna aks you a stupid question, i had injury from lifting weights on gym not a serious one but it leave me thos month a bit of a pain on my left hand-arm the problem is when i play guitar specially when i do stings bend and staff like this i feel my hand becomes worse for some hours.do you have any idea of a trick or exercise to make the hand become stronger for guitar playing or tricks to make guitar playing easier i guess .,im not a pro on guitar i play like 6months now by the way
Well, if were talkin about a re-accuring pain in ur arm I would suggest contacting a doctor about that. but if u wanna know the secret to building up ur chops on guitar I can certainly help u there. First get like a small nerf ball or something like that and do squeezing exercises to help build finger strength. also when ur playing guitar u can try somthing called trilling, it's where you place one finger on a string then hammer on and off with ur other fingers to build strength between them. you can do like ur first finger with ur second third or fourth or any combination u can think of. and if you can't do it very long just slow down and try to go as long as you can, I guarantee results quik, just be careful, we don't wan't anymore injuries lol. And if ur interested in hearing more. theres some other stuff i can show you
We've dun it. A machine that can feel the whole spectrum of human emotion, sh*ty, crappy, sad, horny and hungry ..it can feel it all!

The maker of Stevie Ray Vaughan’s custom hats was Manny Gammage at Texas Hatters. Sadly, Manny passed away in 1995. Stevie Ray Vaughan owned Jimi Hendrix’s wah-wah pedal. Stevie Ray Vaughan’s parents’ names were Martha Jean Cook Vaughan & Jimmie Lee Vaughan, but Jimmie Lee went by “Big Jim.” The album cover of Soul To Soul was photographed in Volente, Texas, at Anderson Mill Garden Club. When Stevie Ray Vaughan was a kid, neighborhood bullies referred to him as “Tomato Nose.” While Stevie Ray was in rehab, his friend Eric Clapton dropped by to encourage him to get better and clean, having gone through similar struggles himself. At Stevie Ray Vaughan’s funeral, Bonnie Raitt, Jackson Browne, and Stevie Wonder sang an acapella version of “Amazing Grace.” Stevie Ray Vaughan had wanted to record his first album in a cheap San Antonio hotel in just the same way that Robert Johnson did many years earlier. When Stevie Ray was 19, he got a tattoo of what was supposed to be a grand phoenix bird rising out of the ashes – but it looked more like a baby peacock. It also, apparently, was excruciating for Vaughan to receive the tattoo. Vaughan and his bride Lenny got married on December 23, 1979 in the beautiful city of Rome, after he had had a dream that Lenny was sitting on Howlin’ Wolfs Knee. Back door man, anyone?
Stevie Ray Vaughan is without of the doubt one of the greatest – and maybe the greatest blues guitarist - of the 80s, blazing a trail out of Texas and onto the world scene like a force of nature that hadn’t been seen in the blues in some time. Tonight, prepare to have your mind blown by these five insane videos. Three of them, “Pride and Joy,” “Texas Flood,” and “Couldn’t Stand the Weather” are authentic Stevie Ray classics, while “Voodoo Chile” and “Little Wing” are offering to Stevie Ray’s great hero, Jimi Hendrix. All of them are guaranteed to rock your Monday Night harder than a wooden mattres. Enjoy the show!
This acoustic version of Michael Jackson’s “Beat It” is a rhythmic masterpiece
Michael Jackson brought us some of the best pop music of the ’80s.
These timeless pieces of music have been iterated and reiterated. This latest one, performed on guitar, is a masterpiece.
It is performed by Miguel Rivera.
“I decided to start working [on] this arrangement because it was a great challenge,” Rivera said, according to Guitar World. “When you listen to the chorus of the original song, you can hear the main riff (recorded by Steve Lukather) together with the Michael’s vocal melody and, of course, drums, bass and other instruments.”
”My objective was to play all [of these parts] together: the main riff, the vocal melody and the percussion part. I had to find the proper tuning and make good use of the harmonics, but in the end I got it.”
