Computer Keyboard as a Tool of Rock

from Play-Gadgets.com


What do a few Georgia Tech nerds do when learning real guitar is too hard and Guitar Hero is too easy? They turn keyboards into guitars. The keyboards control software, which pumps out guitar sounds through a computer. The video of the band playing "Hotel California" is a must-watch... if only for a few seconds.

Mr. Fastfinger Hits the Streets

from Brave Words and Bloody Knuckles


You may recall Mr. Fastfinger from a previous riff. Well, the shred show is hitting the road to jam in Japan, as well as working on a CD release.

Satriani Lends His Shred to Games

from Gamersmark


Sick of the kids singing "Green Grass and High Tides" and "Number of the Beast," just because they''re featured in Rock Band and Guitar Hero? No fear, Satriani to the rescue. "Satch Boogie" and "Surfing With the Alien" are now licensed to the games, so they might be humming a different tune soon.
