I Want You by KISS (Guitar & Bass Lesson)

Let’s Play! by Have Guitar

Got the steam up! Here’s another guitar and bass lesson for you who like classic hard rock – I Want You by KISS, from the album Rock and Roll Over. As I say in the video, this song is for me when Paul Stanley was at his peak of songwriting – it’s a simple riff based song but put together in a very appealing package. Personally I must I admire the ability to make so much out of so little – that’s bordeline genius in this context.

So I have split up this lesson as I usually do, into smaller parts… for the first time I’ll toss in parts of my recording of the song as a reference before the actual lessons. Hopefully it’ll make it easier and especially if you are not that familiar with the song (but you should listen to the original first!).

Below you’ll find an index to the video if you wanna skip to a specific part. Thanks for watching Have Guitar, if you like it feel free to support me with a subscription to the channel. Free for you but gives me the support I need… A very Big Thank You goes out to all of you who already do so!

Tone Mister by ToneJunkie (Kemper profiles demo)

Rig Showcase by Have Guitar

(Bonus video as I got over 700K views today! It’s a small step for man but a giant leap for … Havguitarkind. Erhm… well. Thank You!)

It’s time for a video with one of ToneJunkies latests profile packs – Tone Mister! Recreating the sound from a Fender Tone Master, an amp that was unknown to me before doing this video. This amplifier model came out in the mid 90’s and opinions about it seems to vary quite a bit… possibly due to the builds being a bit inconsistent. Hearsay, from the Internet so don’t take my word for it!

However it is, these profiles sure sounds fine to me. Over 40 studio profiles for your Kemper, both channels from the amp is included as is a couple of different cabs. The pack has good variation in tones and goes quite high up when it comes to gain. I’ve also used the Mooer Rumble Drive pedal to add some extra overdrive to some of the sound demos, it can get pretty heavy with that stomp!

I hope you’ll like the video – feel free to support Have Guitar with a subscription if you do! Much obliged for sub’s, your support is rockin’!

OBS Studio setup for record your DAW

A how-to by Have Guitar

So, I know more people than me have scratched their heads on how to record both screen and audio from your DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) . Actually it is not that complicated – and looks who’s talking: it took me a couple of hours to get it all setup in a working manner! But as I say in the video, once it is done you realize that it isn’t that complicated at all!

You’ll need OBS Studio, a free software that can record both screen and audio from your computer. But then you have the problem that in 9 cases out of 10 OBS studio will not pick up the sound from your DAW! And that is where VB Audio’s VoiceMeeter Banana comes in – also a free software (it’s up to You as it’s donationware) that can route the audio from your DAW so that OBS Studio can pick it up.

Also, a sidenote; pretty sure I refered to my audio interface as Focusrite Sapphire in the video. It’s a Focusrite Scarlett. Just so you know I am aware of that! ๐Ÿ™‚

So, as I was happy to get this thing going I figured I’d make a video out of it. If it helps one person out there it’s worth the time it took… and with said I hope you got something out of this video. Likes and comments are welcome, a subscription even more so! Thanks goes out to you who subscribes, as always!!

Alnico Gold Kemper Cab Pack by ToneJunkie (Kemper profile cabs demo)

Cab Showcase by Have Guitar

It’s been forever since I did a cab testing video but now when ToneJunkie has released no less than three packs of cabs for the Kemper Profiling Amp it’s time to go! This is the ‘Gold Alnico’ Kemper cab pack and it contains 10 close micโ€™d captures of a 2×12 Alnico Gold. Of course they will go nicely with ToneJunkies own profiles but most likely with others as well!

The microphones that has been used to create these cab’s are as follow: Shure SM57, Sennheiser e906, Shure SM7B, Cascade Fathead 2 & Royer 121. The reader who pays attention will now burst out with a “That’s not ten different microphones!!”. No, that is correct. Some of the cabs has been created using combinations of the above mentioned microphones.

And there we are! Hope you’ll like the video – y’all know what to do. Subscribe, like and comment; in that order. Thanks in advance. Together we will take over the universe and force guitarism to be the ruling ism! A round of applause to You who subscribe to Have Guitar, Thanks – Danke – Spassiba and Gracias to you all!

Black Box MKII by Riot (power supply test / review)

Test / Review by Have Guitar

Need a power supply for your pedals? Short on money? Then the Riot Black Box MKII might be something for you. I got tired of my bulky adaptors that takes up more than one space in the power strip so I went to the local music store to see what they could offer. I had planned to spend some more money but then I got greedy and thought I could try this one out.

Seems like this model is quite new and there is not much info to get about it. Heard a rumour that it might be Harley-Benton who’s making these but that is nothing but a rumour so far. It is made in china and the build of the unit seems more than descent for the price. Metal casing and 10 outs for less than 60 Euros? Great. Have a look at the video for my ‘verdict’.

I certainly hope you will like this video and please do support Have Guitar with your subscription if you do. Just wanna scream Thank You to all you who do subscribe, appreciate it!

Tone City pedals unboxing: Golden Plexi, Sweet Cream, Mandragora & Dry Martini

Unboxing by Have Guitar

Here is another pedal unboxing video and time it’s about another batch of Chinese mini pedals, Tone City Golden Plexi, Sweet Cream, Mandragora and Dry Martini. Yeah so I was very impressed by the small Mooer pedals I got and well, I have heard a lot of good things about the Tone City pedals… why not get a bunch of these as well? Said and done and now I have a load of pedals to review!

And that is it. I did toss in some quick sound demos of these pedals as well, just to make the video a little more watchable. Unfortunately you will have to wait awhile for the full-size demo videos even though I’m gonna start recording them as soon as I can.

Hope you’ll like this video – please click the subscribe buton to gimme some support… A very big Thank You to you who already subscribes!!!

Rumble Drive Overdrive Pedal by Mooer (Pedal sound demo & review)

Pedal Frenzy by Have Guitar

I’ve been aware and curious about the Mooer pedals since I tried their mini-wha, The Whater, a couple of years back (it was good!). All I know really is that it is a Chinese company – for me that doesn’t mean it has to be crap. Anyways, so I had a couple of giftcards at the local music store and I came back with 4 Mooer pedals, three of them I got at reduced price.

This video is about the Mooer Rumble Drive Overdrive pedal. Seems most of Mooer’s pedals are based on other wellknown pedals and I did find a webpage that lists them all (the link provided further down). The Rumble Drive is no exception – it’s based on the Hermida/Lovepedal Zendrive. I’ve never tried the Zendrive but I have read some good stuff about it.

And I can tell you; this little green metal box contains some magic tones! I was honestly impressed by the possibilities and the sounds that this pedal brings to the table. It just would not sound bad – especially when you keep volume control up. This one IS a keeper, no doubts about that – just listen to my demo/review of it and judge for yourself!

June 2019 Kemper profiles by ToneCrate & Rob Alvarez (Kemper profiles demo)

Rig Showcase by Have Guitar

How about this… each month for a small fee, you get a pack of profiles for your Kemper delivered in your email. Like christmas every month and screw you Santa! Well, that is a possibility if you sign up for ToneCrate. This months pack has been developed together with the guitarist Rob Alvarez from Upon A Burning Body. Ain’t that awesome!

So this pack is mainly moving in the upper gain regions save one profile. I like that. You might not but gain… is what the people need. It brings happiness and prosperity to the people. So lets up the gain. and unite as one nation under the flag of distortion!

Alright, I hope you like this video… likes, comments and subscriptions will be much appreciated. I take a bow and shout out a THANKS to you who are so sweet as to sub to Have Guitar. What would the channel be without you?
