A diamond in the rough? Not really, I believe that Black Diamond is a very well known song … at least amongst KISS fans. It’s a classic hard rockin’ song from the band’s first self-titled album that was released in 1974.
So this lesson contain how to play the rhythm and lead guitar… that is the first lead, as the song has two. Due to lack of time I had to split this into two videos and the next one will of course be the bass and lead 2 lessons. Plus my version of the tune without vocals and leads for those who practise or just use it for fun.
So KISS was rockin in the 70’s and so could you be, if you subscribe to my channel! Thanks for watching and a Big Fat Thanks to all you subscribing, t-t-t-thanks!

Here we go again with more profiles recreating the sound of a Friedman BE 100 – it’s the BE Evolved from Live Ready Sound! And it not your standard BE 100 either, it’s a modded according to the info on Live Ready Sounds webpage: “This head was custom modded to have a Depth dial with a 3 way frequency selection, variable negative feed back dial and a gain stage mod to give more clarity and a little less compression to the gain.”
A little extra you could say! A plethora of cabs and mic’s have been used to capture this unique amplifier, you better see the info, again of course on Live Ready Sounds webpage – link provided further down!
As always – thanks for watching my channel! And even more as always – a BIG thanks to all of you who subscribes!!
Is it a bird? Or a plane?! No, it’s Mattfigs new Kemper profile pack – the JTM45! Based on a classic Marshall amplifier model this is bound to give you a genuine Marshall sound. The first iteration of the Marshall came out in 1963 (according to Wikipedia, Marshall claims 1962!), more or less copying the Fender Bassman. Now that is a cool amp but Marshall is Marshall, like it or hate it!
You will find a good variation in this profile pack, if I should give you my personal recommendation it is to try raising the Clarity (amp)parameter. That is not exclusive for these profiles – many times when I feel I am a bit disatisfied with a profile, if the Clarity parameter is set to zero; boosting it gives a good return in many cases.
Well that is it. I do hope you like the video, if you do (and even if you don’t!) feel free to support this little independent Swedish channel with a subscription. Thank you to all of you who already do. Close to 3000 subscribers? I didn’t believe I would get 100 even, when I started this channel! You’re all awesome!
