    Man, I never noticed how good John 5's tone or vibrato was.

    I learnt John 5's lick. Such a cool lick and from a killer issue. :metal: Can't wait for the new Michael Romeo one.

    ^^Sometimes, if you already have another youtube video or even another thread with embedded videos open, they won't load properly, but they'll come up eventually, if they haven't already...

    By the way, if anyone has mags with any of the licks not seen here, I'd be very appreciative if you could scan the articles and send them to me so I could tab them up as well. One of these days I'll get around to HTML'ing them or something so everyone can read them, oh well...

    agree on both counts. I was like 'WTF I cant believe my ears'. Karl Sanders, God of Phrygian Dominant on Annihilation of the Wicked puts out this bullshit?
    I guess its to be expected. His tone sucked on the new CD. I think he used his KxK on annihilation (which was 100000 times better that Ithophallyic imo). Ist that supposed to be tremolo picking? Alternate? I cant tell...

    Uggh I have just lost a LOT of respect for Karl

    Yeah... there's much better ones (with him with Dallas) where he plays perfectly fine. This is what happens when you don't do warm ups. I sound the same way until I've noodled for 10 or 15 minutes.

    :squint:

    They should have renamed that section just for him. "Bet you can't imagine being able to play this", or maybe, "We know you can't play this but have fun trying"

    I used to collect these but kinda dropped off as I can't be arsed tracking them down anymore. Anyway, I have a ton that I transcribed into Guitar Pro myself. Do you have the actual articles for the licks in that list? There are some there that I don't have that I'd love to see:metal:

    EDIT: here's what I have that isn't on your list, some stuff has dates, some doesn't, but pretty much everything is from 2005 or later. My files are all taken from the articles in the mags themselves and not the web and include all instructions and accompanying text. Here we go:

    Alex Skolnick, 2004 sometime
    Chris Broderick, 2006 (I think?) - he had two licks in the one issue of the mag, as well as one he submitted that they rejected due to being played on a seven-string, I have all three licks tabbed
    Doug Doppler, 2005, I think
    Herman Li and Sam Totman from Dragonforce, 2006, I think
    Henrik Danhage and Tom Englund of Evergrey, 2006, I think
    Gary Hoey, 2005, I think
    Doc and Dallas Coyle from God Forbid, 2007, I think
    Gus G of Firewind, "" ""
    Jason Hook, 2007 Holiday Edition
    Jimmy Brown (Guitar World editor), 2007, I think
    John5, October 2007
    John Petrucci, 2004, I think
    Karl Sanders of Nile, January 2008
    Marc Rizzo of Soulfly, 2006, I think
    Marty Friedman, 2004, I think
    Michael Romeo of Symphony X, 2005, I think
    Mike Campese, "" ""
    Ralph Santolla of Deicide/Obituary, 2007, I think
    Wayne Findlay of Slavior, 2007, I think

    Anyone out there who has any licks that either of us haven't listed, please post them! I dunno why but these things fascinate me. I think Guitar World has Youtube pull most of the vids now, which blows.

    I'll be listing the rest of them soon very shortly (about a
    week). I'm on a trip right now so I can't do them but I added all of 2006 before I left except for I think August which I can't find the magazine for right now. I have the articles too but that'll take a while.
