Calling Dr Love by KISS (Guitar & Bass lesson)

Let’s Play by Have Guitar!

And now it’s time for a new guitar lesson, and actually bass lesson as well! As it was requested in another video, this is my take of KISS Calling Dr. Love. In this video you’ll get the whole package; rhythm guitars, bass lines and the solo part of the that song! This song is not overly complicated but if you like it, it’s fun to play never the less!

Just wanna say that my version of Calling Dr. Love, that you can find at the end of this video is a very simple recording! For the drums I usually take a midi file and use those drums with a VST instrument. In this case the midi version I found was not very good – it even started with a small drum solo… The guitars are just recorded once, I have not doubled them or anything like that. Still it works as a “blueprint” to practising. There is a version out on Youtube with almost only bass and drums that you can use if you want to – see the link further down.

Other than that I do not think this song requires any more detailed presentation. You might not like KISS and that is fine by me. People have lots of prejudices regarding the show and the makeup to this very day, which is kinda weired as every artist nowadays seems to have larger stage shows than KISS had in the 70’s. It’s a good stompin’ and hard driving rock tune, that’s all there is to it.

Thanks for watching Have Guitar! If you liked this guitar lesson why don’t you subscribe to my channel? The support will be very appreciated. And as in every video, a Very Big Thank YOU to all you who do subscribe. Could not do it without you!

Tony Iommi (TI) Boost by Laney Black Country Customs (pedal test)

Pedal Frenzy by Have Guitar!

Here’s a pedal I have been looking forward to trying out, the Laney Black Country Customs TI Boost – where TI stand for Tony Iommi from Black Sabbath! So, this is a not a regular dist box but rather what is called a clean boost. It’s kinda a replica of what Iommi used in the early days of Sabbath but with some extra controls for gain, treble and base.

Just wanna say that I have used a slightly different approach in how I recorded this video… very much just improvising and noodling around as I try different settings on the pedal, I do hope it comes out OK. The editing of this video was cursed somehow… whatever could go wrong, went wrong! To a degree where I almost went ahead re-recorded it all over again. Just saying. Any comments – especially constructive critisim – is very welcome, I’m still experimenting on how to provide a nice overview of a pedal.

Anyways, I do hope you’ll like the video! And as in every video’s description I would like to say Thanks to you who subscribe, your support is awesome!

Gibson SG Government Series 1 (Guitar review)

Guitar review by Have Guitar!

I must confess I am blessed by having a friend who’s as guitar crazy as I am… if not this (and several other videos) would not have happend! So, he went about and bought two Gibsons from the Government Series 1 and this is the first review where I take a close look at the Gibson SG Government Series 1. A big Thanks to Klas for letting me try out these guitars!

All the details about this SG is in the video – that is, all the details that I could find! There isn’t that much information available actually… and to be honest, I wasn’t even aware about the the Government models until my buddy bought these. They are kinda rare as each model was produced in only 300 units, perhaps even less for some of the them. All models in the Series 1 goes in gray/black and there is also a Series 2 that goes in tan/brown and black. Another funny details about the Government Series 1 is that the cases goes in green and black!

So, hope you’ll like this video – I certainly enjoyed recording it. Just gonna mention that this video is in 24 FPS instead of the usual 50 FPS. Sorry for that but it’s kinda annoying in the new video editing software that I’m using (Davinci Resolve) that stuff like that should be set before editing any media – once you’ve added the media it cannot be changed, so it was a miss from side. Thanks goes out to all my subscribers!!

Feeling bored on the Good Friday? Alright, so here’s an Easter Bonus video – Live Ready Sounds 79 Mini Bender Kemper profile pack!

V90 Mesa MK V by TMS Profiles + Giveaway! (Kemper profiles demo)

Rig Showcase and Giveaway by Have Guitar!

Time for another rig showcase and this time it’s the brand new profile pack from TMS Profiles – V90 Mesa MK V! Now this was a pleasure to try out, loads and loads of great sound profiles… and the pack is cheap too! And to add to that, if you watch this video you could have a chance of winning a copy of this profile pack for free! That’s right, TMS Profiles was so kind that they let me giveaway 5 copies of this pack! Ain’t that grand?! So the instructions of getting into the giveaway comes at the end of video.

DEADLINE for this giveaway: 21st of March 2019, 23:59!
(The Winners will be presented in a video a couple of days after the DL!)

The V90 MK V pack comes loaded with 99 merged profiles for your Kemper profiling amp – some of them has effects included from the start and do believe all of them has inactivated effects included. A tip, that I also mention in the video, is to lower the Noise Gate – seems ALL the profiles has quite a high setting and lowering the NG helps to make the tone feel a bit more dynamic in my opinion.

So that is it, I do hope you like the video AND the giveaway – once again thanks to TMS profiles for being so generous!! Also, feel free to sunscribe to Have Guitar to support my channel, it will be much appreciated. And as always to all you subscribing – thanks for Your support!

Sovtek Tube Midget 50H by Gold Lion Studios (Kemper profiles demo)

Sovtek Tube Midget 50H by Gold Lion Studios (Kemper profiles demo)
Rig Showcase by Have Guitar

It’s another Rig Showcase and this one is something I have been looking forward to do: Gold Lion Studios Sovtek Tube Midget 50H Ultimate Pack! Eventhough I have never owned one or even played one I’ve had a thing for the Sovtek amps. Don’t ask me why, but they have always seemed to be very cool in some way. Just the fact that they’re made in Russia makes them kinda unique…

So, if I have understood this correctly this model loosely based on a Marshall JCM800 and that it has a lot more gain than the other Sovtek 50 watter. All picked up from Google so don’t take my word for it. But this is a nice pack with its own character, if you like it get it!

And thanks for watching Have Guitar! Feel free to hit that subscribe button to support me… For all my subscribers I can only say Thank You!!

New Reverbs for the Kemper Profiling Amp (5.7.0.14092 Public Beta)

New Reverbs for the Kemper Profiling Amp (Kemper profiles demo)
Showcase by Have Guitar

Finally here – the new reverbs for the Kemper Profiling Amps! What kinda Kemperist would I be if I didn’t make a video of this?! So the old Reverbs goes into a new cathegory called Legacy Reverbs while we in return get some new one: Echo Reverb, Natural Reverb, Easy Reverb, Spring Reverb and Cirrus Reverb. All of them with their own characteristics. There is also one more called “Space” – according to the updated manual: “The Space effect is identical to the global version of Space in the Output Section. It produces the natural reflections of a small, neutral-sounding room.” Just didn’t make much of a difference to the sound in my ears so I decided to leave that out.

All in all this is great addon to the KPA – to get to keep the old Reverb possibilities and get a bunch of new one for free! Thank you, Kemper! So if you wanna hear anything specific – check out the index below. Appologies for the somewhat fuzzy close-ups of the KPA display – I will experiment some with the new action cam to see if I can improve on that. It takes baby steps to get better…

Index:
01:46 – Spring Reverb
03:44 – Natural Reverb
05:18 – Easy Reverb
07:09 – Echo Reverb
08:15 – Cirrus Reverb
10:14 – Conclusional ramblings

Top Cap Club Loyale by ToneJunkie (Kemper profiles demo)

Top Cap Club Loyale by ToneJunkie (Kemper profiles demo)
Rig Showcase by Have Guitar

Welcome to what could be the first Rig Showcase from Have Guitar in 2019! (Not sure about the release order as I’m writing this…). So this is the Top Cap Club Royale from ToneJunkie – 30 studio and 6 direct profiles for your Kemper Profiling Amp – recreating the sound of a Top Hat Club Royale amp. What’s that? Well, I don’t know about you but I sure didn’t know anything about this amp before I tried out this pack. Gotta give the hat off to ToneJunkie for being able to pull out stuff like this from their magic hat! (Alright, enough hat jokes for now!!)

The amp is a 20 watt combo that comes as 1×12 or 2×12 and if you want more info there’s a link further down to Top Hat Amps webpage. This amp has it’s character and sound pretty good if ask me but the range would be from clean to classic rockand no further. As always it’s great to try out an amp I will probably never even be close to even if it’s in the profile shape. Hats off to ToneJunkie for that! (Oops, sorry… no more hat jokes from. Promise!)

And that’s about it! Hope you enjoy the video and feel free to push that subscribe button to give some much appreciated support to me and my channel! A big, fat Thanks to all you who subscribe, couldn’t keep it up without you!
