Mr. Speed by KISS (Rhythm & Lead lesson for guitar)

Time for the guitar parts of Mr. Speed by KISS. A great song from one of their best albums, Rock and Roll Over, if you ask me! This lesson includes rhythm and lead guitars with tabulature included. I have included both play-through and a detailed lesson for both parts, see the index below!

I have included some links below; to my Bass lesson for Mr. Speed, the original Rock and Roll Over version and then the demo version of Mr. Speed. This one is a bit interesting as Bob Kulic claimed he played on it and I have no reason to doubt that – it’s certainly not Ace playing! But I do find it interesting as Bob always seems a bit condescending when talking about Ace… Sure, he was a technically more proficient guitarist than Ace, but on this occassion I must say Ace crushed the demo versions solo’s and fill-ins. Well, that is just my opinion.

Thanks for watching and you had some use for this lesson! If you wanna support my channel, use the link provided below to subscribe! An endless cosmic Thank You to all you who do sub, very much appreciated!!

Mr Speed by KISS (Bass lesson with TABs)

What you’re watching is a bass lesson for Mr. Speed by KISS, provided with tabulature and detailed instructions. I decided to split up the bass and guitar lessons to different videos and this is the first where I do it… unless you count the lesson for Black Diamond, where it was kinda mixed up.

I have also included two different parts; one where I play along with my recording and one where I go through the song more slowly and detailed, both versions includes TABs. I think maybe I did a little error on the first verse in the detailed part but watch the TABs and you’ll get it right. Shit happends…

As for the recording, my good friend Micke Back was kind enough to drag his drum kit over here and record three classic KISS songs with me. It’s refreshing working with a real drummer rather than having to program drums… but I am not a pro when it comes to mix live drums, still I am kinda happy with the result here. The mix heard in the video is actually not the final mix but good enough I hope… I’m actually thinking of re-doing the bass parts as my bass would really do well with a change of strings!

And if anyone is curious about the thumbnail picture, that is my last bike – a Honda Blackbird. I just thought that pic goes well with the song’s title. Unfortunately I had to give up my biker days due to a shoulder injury that took several years to heal… I’d like to ride again but currently it seems I invest my spare money into guitars instead! 😉

Dry Martini by Tone City (Review / Demo / Showcase)

Pedal Frenzy by Have Guitar!

The American writer E.B. White said about the Dry martini; “the elixir of quietude”, which of course is something you couldn’t (or maybe shouldn’t) say about an overdrive pedal like the Tone City Dry Martini… (yes, he was talking about the drink).

So this is a demo/review of the Tone City micro pedal Dry Martini. This is a clone of the Fulltone OCD pedal and features about the same controls as the OCD; Volume, Tone, Gain and a high/low gain switch. The gain is best described as low to medium with a punchy character (think a tube amplifier at its ‘sweet spot’). It should be noted that the latest version of the Fulltone OCD has some features that the Dry Martini hasn’t; like the ‘Enhanced bypass’ for example.

This video is all about the Tone City Dry Martini on its own, no comparison with the Fulltone OCD. If not already out, I will soon release a “blind test” video where you can test if you can spot which is the original pedal (or which of them you would prefer). I’ve used one clean sound and one slightly overdriven sound for this review, should be noted that due to a malfunction the sound in the overdriven sound part of the video is captured by room microphones.

Hope you like the video – support Have Guitar! with a subscription! I’m very grateful to all you who already do, Thanks!

Great Expectations by KISS (Lesson for guitar & bass)

Lessons by Have Guitar!

Time for a lesson on how to play Great Expectations by KISS. Both guitar and bass! Not overly comlicated but what a great song, if you ask me… this track comes from Destroyer and was released in 1976. As it happends it was the first rock album that I got my hands on and after that there was no turning back, whatever the current trends says (grin).

Some people might say that Destroyer was ‘over-produced’ but I think the sound of that album is fantastic, it kinda captures the image of KISS – especially in the new costumes they got for that album. From what I know the song has only been performed live once and that was during the recording of ‘Symphony Alive IV’, understandable as it kinda feels a bit empty when scaled down to just guitars, bass and drums.

Anyways, I hope you liked the lesson and maybe even had some use of it… if you wanna support Have Guitar – subscribe, see the link below. Big appreciation goes out to all of You who do subscribe, Thanks!!!

Trident by ToneJunkie (Kemper profiles demo)

Rig Showcase by Have Guitar!

It’s not every day ToneJunkie releases a pack based on a Mesa Boogie amp, but this is it! The Trident Kemper profile pack recreates the sound from a Mesa Boogie Stiletto Trident and in ToneJunkies own words – “If you are a fan of British EL34 amps but enjoy want a less vintage and more hi fi flavor and tightness…this pack is right for you!!!”

The pack contains 18 studio and 11 direct profiles, not the largest pack but sometimes that is good thing, you know… decreases the risk of decision agony! The profile pack has good variety but don’t expect any metal style tones out of the box. The original amp is said bring both Marshall and Mesa tones and that is pretty much how I experienced these profiles.

Nothin’ To Lose by KISS (Guitar and Bass Lesson)

Let’s Play! by Have Guitar!

Here’s a lesson on how to play the song Nothin’ To Lose by KISS – it covers rhythm and lead guitar and bass! Nothin’ To Lose was written by Gene Simmons and released on the first album KISS, released 18th of Febuary 1974.

This song was the first single released by KISS (B-side was Love Theme from KISS), vocals performed by Gene Simmons and Peter Criss. Besides that it’s one of the few times a non-member of the band has has been listed as a playing musician, namely Bruce Foster on piano and additional guitar. Nothin To Lose was also later released as B-side to the single Kissin’ Time.

I’ve based this lesson on the Alive! version of Nothin To Lose, the difference is not major – mainly that last part of the solo. The drums comes from a midifile I found online, it mentions “Enzo” as the author so cudos to him. I stripped the midi file and used XLN Audio Addictive Drums II and also edited the midi drums here and there. All guitars and bass on the track is recorded by me.

This is the eight guitar lesson for classic KISS songs on Have Guitar!, so far I have covered: She, Deuce, Shock Me, 2000 Man, Room Service, I Want You and Calling Dr Love. If you like this series – subsscribe now for more songs! And feel free to gimme suggestions in the comments of this video!

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!

TMS RKR30 by TMS Profiles (Kemper profiles demo)

Rig Showcase by Have Guitar

Here’s a video that features TMS Profiles new Kemper profile pack – RKR30 – recreating the sound of an Orange Rocker 30 head. This pack contain 40 Merged profiles that according to my opinion really captures that Orange sound – fat and creamy just like you should like it! And… I’ll throw in this video as a “bonus” as it’s also a giveaway! Watch the video to see how to enter – a very Big Thank You to TMS Profiles for letting me do this giveaway.

Deadline for the giveaway:
April 27th 2019, 23:59

Throwing in a footnote here that this is the first video that I have created/edited in Davinci Resolve, a video editing software that is available for free in a light version. It should not make any difference for you as a viewer and the reason for me changing software is that I am tired of seeing the Magix Movie Studio Platinum series not improving with the new versions. And also that I don’t wanna pay for those not so good new versions…

Thanks for watching Have Guitar and the support from you who subscribe is something which I am very grateful for! If you wanna support my little independent channel do subscribe, it’s free! 😉
