Lick Library 2010 Advent Calendar

Tweet
The guys at the Lick Library are donning their red hats and fat-suits.
They’re launching their 2010 Advent calendar. This means that, for every day between now and Christmas they will offer a series of special offers. Like the Advent calendar thing that you might have had as a kid, each day you open a box and see what’s inside. Instead of some, slightly sub-standard, chocolate though, inside these virtual doors is some sort of Lick Library offer.
There’s no limit to how many special offers you can grab so you …

Last Live Footage Of Dio Being Released

Tweet
Although nobody knew it, Heaven & Hell’s appearance at the Wacken festival in Germany during July of 200 was to be the last time a Ronnie James Dio live performance would be caught on film (as I’m sure you all know, Ronnie died earlier this year from stomach cancer). The festival appearance was part of Heaven & Hell’s The Devil You Know tour.
Eagle records is to release a CD/DVD featuring a recording of that performance. The release will be called Neon Nights: 30 Years of Heaven & Hell and the …

Learn To Play Dio

Tweet
I’ve got to admit, when I received this, I spent some time wondering why it wasn’t called ‘Learn To Play Vivian Campbell”. The cynic in me can’t help associating this (upcoming) release with the very sad loss of Ronnie James Dio earlier this year.
All that said of course, the fact remains that the work Campbell did with Dio represents some excellent examples of 80s metal guitar riffs. Cynicism aside, this DVD tutorial from the Lick Library contains some great songs and, for anyone with an interest in playing great riffs …

Nils Lofgren – 3 Show/2 Disc DVD

Tweet
It better have Keith Don’t Go on it. Say it has Keith Don’t Go on it.
Ahhh, it does.
Right then, Nils Lofgren. He’s got a spanking new DVD out. It’s called Cry Tough and it covers three different and separate live performances from the bescarfed one. Each performance was filmed at different eras in Lofgren’s career and could be an interesting indicator of how (if at all) some of his songs and his style has altered over the years. A back-to-back viewing of these three shows, over two DVDs could make …

Lick Library Brings The Angus Young

Tweet
I’ve been an AC/DC fan forever.  The first riff I ever learned was The Jack.  I’ve been listening to Angus and the boys for so long that it’s sometimes a surprise when I’m reminded just how popular they are with, you know, normal people.
Let me explain a little.  Many of the bands I grew up rocking to haven’t gained the widespread acceptance, and even love, that AC/DC have.  Everybody loves AC/DC.  And if you don’t, why don’t you?  If you’re a guitarist, you’d better have a good reason.
Or, you could …

Lick Library – Ozzy’s Axe Men

Tweet
If you’re a rocker of a certain age, there’s a good chance you spent a chunk of your formative years listening to early Ozzy albums desperately trying to figure out what the hell Randy Rhoads was playing.  You whippersnappers may have done similar with the albums of the latter-day Ozzy with Zakk Wylde.
Lick Library have just announced, not only a Randy Rhoads, but also a Zakk Wylde version of their Learn To Play – The Solos DVDs.
As well as the DVD tutorials, these releases include a CD of professionally recorded …
