Seymour Duncan Unveils the Lemmy Kilmister Signature Pickup

The pickups are available in individual neck, middle, or bridge models, or as a complete set.

Santa Barbara, CA (December 26, 2014) -- The sound of Motörhead is defined by the high-output fat tone and midrange grind that Lemmy Kilmister has delivered for decades with songs like "Ace of Spades” and "Iron Fist,” combined with a fast pick attack on his Rickenbacker bass. We started with carefully analyzing the pickups in his bass and then made them even ruder - that's right, even more attack and punch - while also making sure they had plenty of clarity under heavy distortion. The results are three unique pickups, each hand-built in the Seymour Duncan Custom Shop and available in individual neck, middle or bridge models, or as a complete set. The pickups are available in either a direct mount for Lemmy Signature Basses or pickguard mount for traditional Rickenbacker basses. You can also get your choice of nickel or gold.

Knowing how to function in different keys is crucial to improvising in any context. One path to fretboard mastery is learning how to move through positions across the neck. Even something as simple as a three-note-per-string major scale can offer loads of options when it’s time to step up and rip. I’m going to outline seven technical sequences, each one focusing on a position of a diatonic major scale. This should provide a fun workout for the fingers and hopefully inspire a few licks of your own.
