Recommended Gear Page
This area is dedicated to guitar gear that I use and recommend. If I don’t use it or like it, I won’t promote it here. Simple as that. I will only post links to strings, pedals and other guitar related items that I actually like and use. Period.

All the items here link to Amazon. I get a small percentage of the sale of items that are sold using the links from these pages. It’s nothing big but it will help support The Guitar Podcast financially. It’s the little things you know…

With that, here is the list of cool guitar stuff I like and use!

Pedals & Pedalboard Accessories
Accessories – strings, picks, winders etc…

Episode 28: Bella Vega – Guiness Book of World Records Fastest Guitarist

Episode 28: Bella Vega – Guiness Book of World Records Fastest Guitarist

You have to sit through his introduction and all the subtitles, but it’s worth it. Watch how fast this guy can play! Now pay close attention to how little effort is made in his playing. What can we learn from his technique?

Lessons we can learn from how Tiago Della Vega approaches the guitar, his technique and effortless style. We may not ever come near the speed he attains in this video, but we can improve our playing by taking what we observe.

Episode 27: Scales & Improvisation

Episode 27: Scales & Improvisation

Rick emails me:
“I know some scales, and can play those scales in the key. I can only improvise using those scales. Vocabulary is limited to those scales I know.

knowing how to use the scales I know well, and learning how to incorporate new scales would be a big help to me. A lot of mid-range guitarists can use help with.

I can memorize new scales, but not sure what to do with them so I fall back on the tried and true. So what one person would call style, I would call boring!”

Scales are the overall map. Licks get you where you want to go…

  • Sweet Child O Mine
  • November Rain (I hate to subject you to Vevo Ads, but this was the best video I could find)
  • Comfortably Numb – perhaps the best example of a solo being a perfect fit for a song & David Gilmore being very melodic. A very soothing solo. A great solo to learn.

By the way, I would not suggest playing G minor pentatonic over G7.
