French YouTube personality NeoGeofanatic recently posted another demo on his official channel in which he tests out a pair of the newest Warren DeMartini signature guitars.
Not only does he show what the Pro Mod Snake and Pro Mod Blood and Skull models can do while playing together on an ’80s-inspired ballad, but he also takes each of them for a singular spin with killer solos.

On occasions when he’s not playing with progressive rock pioneers Asia, guitarist Sam Coulson jams with a group called Danger Zone.
And during a recent gig at Morgan’s Pub in Calgary, Alberta, Coulson attached a GoPro camera to the end of his Charvel So-Cal to give fans an up-close-and-personal look at his expert fretwork.
Danger Zone covered rock classics like Journey’s “Separate Ways,” Dio’s “Holy Diver” and Europe’s “Final Countdown,” not to mention “Eruption” from Van Halen.
After the jump, watch Coulson rip through some killer solos from an excellent vantage point – the end of his headstock! (more…)
The Aristocrats have a new album called Tres Caballeros scheduled to drop on June 23, and for those that just can’t wait to sample the new music, the trio has released a teaser trailer that covers the entire record.
Recorded at Sunset Sound in Hollywood, Tres Caballeros is the Aristocrats’ third full-length and represents another step in their layered fusion stylings.
“We’ve learned a lot since we started this band—four years, three studio albums, two live DVDs and about a billion notes ago—and I think our latest offering reflects this in all kinds of ways,” guitarist Guthrie Govan told Guitar World.
“The decision to road-test our new material in front of a live audience before commencing the recording process; the choice to record in a studio that had some thoroughly inspiring rock and roll ‘mojo;’ our sudden urge to become more bold and experimental with overdubs rather than feeling any pressure to record exclusively in a strict ‘trio’ format … all of this has had some kind of positive effect on the way the new record came out.
“Plus, I think the material on this album is some of the most interesting stuff we’ve ever written for each other, so … here’s hoping our noble listeners will like the finished product as much as we do!”
