Christmas Countdown – Guitarist 15th December: Billy Gibbons (ZZ Top)

One of my favourite guitarists in this genre, Billy Gibbons – got the riffs and licks and the groove. Yep, it’s another one probably well known by most people who play guitar but how could I omit him from this list? I can’t! πŸ™‚

Christmas Countdown – Guitarist 14th December: David Gilmoure (Pink Floyd)

Well, I’m sorry… I just can’t make a list like this without including David Gilmoure! When I first heard Pink Floyd (Dark Side of the Moon by the way) I had been listening to allmost only hard rock and metal for 10 years and this was one of those moments that just opened up new musical doors for me. Not a lot of notes per second but man did Gilmoure create some magic with Pink Floyd back in the 70’s. Please note that I have consciously not picked “Comfortably Numb”, instead I chose “One of these days…” with some mean lap steel slide!

PRS Archon 100 (Kemper Profiles demo) by ReampZone (Kemper Rig Showcase)

Time for another Kemper Rig Showcase from Have Guitar! This time I’ve had the opportunity to test out a new rig pack from ReampZone – so new it’s actually not released yet, this is a preview of ReampZones PRS Archon 100! Clearly aimed for the hard and heavy side of music and as a bonus some of these profiles has been boosted with fine botique pedal from Fortin (Grind and 33!).

The PRS Archon has two channels, one for overdrive and one for clean – both sound really amazing in these profiles and you can almost feel the 6L6 tubes sweating… those nice pedals I mentioned does not make things worse, I can tell you that for a fact!

Christmas Countdown – Guitarist 13th December: Ben Poole

Just stumbled across this video a while back and I must say I’m very impressed by Ben Pooles playing and the way he gives new life to Hendrix’ Hey Joe – a classic that has been covered so many times one could start to think it’s allmost worn out… But really, do take a listen to the video below!

Christmas Countdown – Guitarist 12th December: Irwin Thomas (Southern Sons, Electric Mary)

Irwin Thomas (previously known as Jack Jones) has played with both Southern Sons and Electric Mary, both great bands – and he has released solo albums as well. I don’t know, I just think he has a good ability to write great riffs and cool style of guitar playing and I really dig Electric Mary, have a listen for yourself:

Christmas Countdown – Guitarist 11th December: John Frusciante (RHCP)

When I first heard Red Hot chili Peppers album “Blood Sugar Sex Magic” back in the 90’s I almost became obsessed by it, I have no idea how many times I played that CD… The songs are great, the videos were kinda magic and the guitar work on that album byΒ John Frusciante is just that cool and well thought out. To me this is the peak of both RHCP andΒ John Frusciante, their masterpiece. Frusciante has released 12 solo albums that are, according to me somewhat unbalanced, some of it is good, some of it interesting but it’s unfortunately nowhere close to BSSM…

Christmas Countdown – Guitarist 10th December: Keith Richards (Rolling Stones)

No introduction needed, I presume? I think most people knows of the Stones, the scandals, the drugs… you name it. Still I really like his simplistic and laid back style. He’s a living legend in my book.

Christmas Countdown – Guitarist 9th December: Susanne Tedeschi & Derek Trucks

Another post with two guitarists and the background is… I first discovered Susanne Tedechi when she played on Conan O’Briens Late Show – a fantastic blues lady! Then a little while later I found Derek Trucks Band, also a God given guitarist… and then of course I discovered they were a pair and that they formed a band together so here they are:

Christmas Countdown – Guitarist 8th December: Randy Rhoads

Another classic, legendary player – Randy Rhoads is for me the missing link between neoclassic shredding and old school classic rock lead and he does in such a style that I never heard any other guitarist come even close. I chose the clip below because it’s kinda interesting hearing Randys studio work separated from the rest of the music:

Kemper Rig Showcase: Mbritt / 3rd Power 3P CSR Pack

Have Guitar! is back with a new Kemper Rig Showcase – this time I’m happy to be able to present the Mbritt / 3rd Power 3P CSR Pack! It’s a co-operation between Michael Britt and 3rd Power amplification, and yes – it’s another amp manufacturer who now offers Kemper profiles from their own amps. A very nice initiative if you ask for my opinion!

In this rig pack you will get 60 studio profiles created from the original Citizen Gain CSR prototype unit. These Kemper profiles really cover a wide range of tonal possibilities or as Mbritt states in his information sheet “everything from vintage plexi all the way to 800 land”. For myself, I was highly impressed by this pack, from the variation of the profiles to the tonal qualities they bring to the table. So, have a listen to my demo then just head on out and buy this pack already!

Hope you liked the video! If so please support Have Guitars effort to bring fun guitar-related videos to quaff boredom by subscribing to the channel. A big thanks as always to all of you already subscribing, very much appreciated!
