Peter Thorn

Post by Surfcaster » Mon Mar 05, 2012 10:20 pm

I found Pete Thorn doing video demo's on YouTube..for all kinds of stuff. The first one I found was demo'ing the Boss Power Stack, then I saw a couple comparing different Scumback speakers. And there are a pile of others, including some TC Electronic gear. His videos are always well done, very informative.

So I was checking out his Scumback videos again the other day and see he's got an instrumental album out. So I pull up iTunes to see if it's there, and sure enough. So I demo the different songs and realize I gotta have this album!

Turns out he's mostly been a hired gun up to this point, playing in the studio and on stage with people like Chris Cornell, Don Henley, Melissa Etheridge, Courtney Love. He's a HUGE EVH fan...has lots of his signature gear.

The album, Guitar Nerd, is a great album. I love Satch, Eric Johnson and Andy Timmons, and IMHO, this ablum ranks right up there with some of their best! Check it out!! [smilie=gt-happyup.gif]

I hadn't seen the Eruption videos yet...very cool Reminds of my college days...it was 1986 and a guy who played electric guitar lived on the floor below me right under my room and every so often I'd hear him playing. I had only dabbled on an electric at that point, but the interest was there. And this guy was pretty good, though a bit of a strange guy, too. One Saturday night I heard Eruption coming up through the floor and at first I thought he had just cranked up his stereo, because it was spot on. It was only when he finished and morphed into some other song that I realized he was the one playing! Don't know what ever happened to him...

You are going to love it, it takes over once you get near, most of it isn't to bad to learn, but a couple of parts have aken me a long time to get right,
mostly the wide stretch legato and the open string pull offs that are frankly just silly.

Anyway back to topic, also check out Pete's Eleven Rack stuff.
