DistroKid – Spread Your Music!

http://distrokid.com/

So, have you ever considered getting your music online with all those streaming services available nowadays? I’m sure you have and that’s why I did this video. Actually I have been thinking about it myself so I decided to start off with my old band Universal Flytrap – our old CD will soon be available on Spotify, Google Music and many more online music services!

In this video I will show you some of the benefits of DistroKid and how to do it – it’s really easy and not very expensive either. Remember those days when you had to rent a studio, get a master, send to a vinyl or CD pressing and all of that? Sure, it’s nice to have the music in a physical format but getting the music out there is a lot more easy and cheap nowadays…

From that when I uploaded the album til it was available on a couple of the major streaming services took about 24 hours! Check out the artist link below to check out my old band!

ZZ Top – 5 cool classic riffs

Rifforama by Have Guitar!

(Decided yo make this a Saturday bonus video so here we go – have a great weekend!)

Well, here’s something I’ve haven’t done before – some cool riffs from a classic band, ZZ Top. I’m not near Billy Gibbons but he has been one of my favourite guitar slingers for many a years. To me this is useful little exercise, as I have found that every time you oick out something from another guitarist you learn something new that didn’t know before. And it’s fun. (And no, I don’t play’em perfectly – it’s only rock and roll…)

I am not saying this is the best riffs or songs from ZZ Top but I tried to find five riffs that people haven’t heard ad nauseam. Also in the video I don’t spend any time motivating why so here’s a short run through of that, if anyone’s interested:

Shiek (Tres Hombres, 26 July 1973)
Just a groovy, funny song that kinda catched me the first I heard it. As many times the lyrics are kinda droll… “I met a Sheik from Mozambique”.

Just Got Paid (Rio Grande Mud, 4 April 1972)
Good drive with a great riff, I’ve played this live several times and it’s just one of those songs that are fun to play. “I was born my papa’s son,
When I hit the ground I was on the run”

Down Brownie (Rio Grande Mud, 4 April 1972)
Not a song that I have listened alot to but the riff kinda stuck when I decided to make this video. “Gonta drive on a flatbed trailer truck,
Down on highway fifty-nine”

Heard it on the X (Fandango!, 18 April 1975)
Another ZZ Top classic that just hit home with that first marking and then that driving riff. “Country Jesus, hillbilly blues,
That’s where I learned my licks”

Waitin’ for the bus (Tres Hombres, 26 July 1973)
A song I never grow tired of, from the opening with those perfect drum fills and the groove that just swings! “Well, I’ll be ridin’ on the bus till I Cadillac”

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!

A really heartfelt Thank You to all you who subscribe!
