Don’t mind Polish at the beginnings of the videos. We switch to common tongue after a few seconds:)

Here is a lesson for a bitchin’ song by a bitchin’ band! If all lessons were that entertaining…enjoy:)

First off I just want to say…though I can not stress it enough…those four guys truly changed my life. The minute I heard Steel Panther I became fully assured about what I want to do – and that is rock like they do! Trends displayed over the last few years by the music industry resulted in suicidal thoughts that kept building up in the minds of people aware of what true music is. And when pretty much all hope was lost a band of real warriors and believers surfaced above the endless ocean of shit. I do not know about you, but I am a devoted 80s lover. Regardless of the fact that I was born in 1987 I feel more attached to those times (music-wise) than to anything that has happened in music since. After all, being born in the same year ‘Appetite for Destruction’ was released predestines you to rock appreciation. Anyway…I choose to believe that everyone has already heard about Steel Panther and that all of you treat them with nothing but respect they deserve. Still, in case you failed to come across the band no worries – I am here to help:)
Ladies and gents, I am giving you Steel Panther – the most bitchin’ band out there whose mission is to restore heavy metal and reclaim its place on the pedestal among any other music genres! I will not give up too much information. I will give you all a chance to go down this road on your own, all I am doing is giving you a push in the RIGHT direction. Take your time, explore Steel Panther song by song, note by note, word by word…trust me, you will not regret it. They are the shit and they are grwoing bigger each day. Long live Steel Panther!

Here’s my Slash – Anastasia (cover contest) entry video. They said videos were suppose to be at least 30 sec long so I spent half an hour on leraning a bit of the song and I recorded it. Watch, say what you think and support. Could use a new guitar:) Cheers!

Well, today I would like to introduce you to a guitarist you are probably not familiar with. Actually I wish to attract your attention to more than one person. I have not mentioned that earlier but I am from Poland. Many of you may not know where that is:) Still we are not so small and not as musically retarded as many may think. The truth is…it is extremely difficult to play music you love and get paid for it here. Most musicians need to become flexible and bend their pride in order to reach success. I know…it is fucking sad. However there is some good in it…not much but still there is some. The person mentioned in the title – Grzegorz Skawiński – is a good example of a man who realised that due to the country he lives in he needs to pay his dues before he can do something that would satisfy him and meet his musical vision. I will not be laying his whole life story in this text but I will say that – ‘Skawa’ has always been successful regardless of the music genre he played. I do not know about you but to me that says a lot about a man.
…But let’s get to the point. At last ‘Skawa’ recorded and released an album that reminded me, and many musicians in my country, that this man can really play! Not only did he prove that he is still in great shape but he showed all of us that one must not give up too. I encourage you all to find an hour of your time and listen to that album. ‘Me and my guitar’ really kicks some serious ass! The song I want to share with you today features the best Polish guitar players ( Jacek Królik, Marek Raduli, Jacek Polak, Adam ‘Nergal’ Darski, Piotr Łukaszewski, Marek Napiórkowski). All of them display their abilities to their fullest. Listen to different styles and amazing technique that those guys wield. I hope that after hearing the song you will remember some of the names and will spread the news even further as those guys really deserve recognition! Enjoy and do not forget to share a lick!

I have no idea how most of great musicians are able to play drunk or high…I don’t know about you but for me it’s pretty challenging. Why I am saying that? Basically ’cause I don’t feel like describing a lick in detail for you today. I prefer to show it. The video I include was filmed when I was a bit drunk and so it magically happened I had a video camera by my side:) To cut the story short – I made a drunken mistake:P There are some slip-ups during the solo, but you’ll get the main gist. The lick I would like to throw at you today occurs at 0:04-0:08. It’s a quick pentatonic run that works effectively in many musical situations you may encounter during your journey as a guitar player. I play the solo one tone lower than the original btw.
Right, so regarding the lick…let’s try to do it like this. I give you the video with me playing the lick and thanks to the gift of internet you have the original song at your disposal at any given moment. Try to figure the lick out and play it. I expect to see video responses. I am sure you will do better than me as long as you stay sober during the recording:) A little push will do you good. In case you won’t be able to figure the lick out on your own I will provide you with a tutorial for it. Still, I’m certain that you will get it:) Good luck!
