I love artists brains. And now with all this technology we have, we can make these nutty/cool ideas a reality. Gianluca Gimini did a great job on these 3D renders.

UPDATE: Sorry, didn’t realise there was a bad link.

Incredible design process

Having been into design for a while, this video blew my mind. David Adrian Smith is the designer responsible for my brain melting and I loved every minute. This is the behind the scenes of his work for the John Mayer CD “Born & Raised” Any design buffs will get a kick out of this. Enjoy😉

What a great idea. I’ve traveled a lot and had many encounters where the language was different. Needless to say there’s a lot of confusing situations possible. This is a great and simple way to communicate across the globe. Good idea😉

Metal Solo Contest

So, I decided that I needed a challenge and took on this guitar solo contest. I started playing metal about 25 years ago, but haven’t played much at all over the last 15 years which have taken me on many other musical journeys. I didn’t have as much time as I needed to get it to 100% but I’m happy with where I ended up. This was one of the better takes, I decided against chopping up all the good bits for one video, but it was tempting😉
Cheers

Hi there, If you’re wanting learn the guitar then you can step over to my site (fresh version for the new year) and you can check out some videos I have made for free and if you’re interested, we can organise one on one lessons via skype or in person if you live in Lyon.
I have experience with many differently styles, from Flamenco, Jazz, Blues and Funk to Rock and Metal. I teach theory and technique but mostly aim to make you enjoy the instrument and get what you want out of it. Please pass this on to anyone you know that may be interested. Thanks and Happy New Year Screen Shot 2015-04-25 at 01.07.06

Here’s the first lesson on my approach to playing a more funky finger style on the acoustic guitar. It’s a mix of techniques I’ve picked up over the years and works really well to spice up your groove playing. Pass it on to anyone that may find it useful. Cheers
