Listening to a great Strat Player.  Carl Verheyen is a great pro player.  I got the chance to hear him give a clinic and killer concert in nearby Viersen, Germany during July 2000.  Click here to read all about it, including setup tips, practice tips, and how to sound like a pro (well, nearly).   Worth the time to read!

Mr. Verheyen!

Playing Our Favorite Stratocaster.   Click here to hear an MP3 of the Yngwie Strat through a POD Version 1 (which has since been upgraded to Version 2).

This is a little rock "ditty" that lasts about one minute and is a pretty good headbanger.

This is a great, great guitar, and recommend it to anyone looking for something different.

Yngwie uber alles!


Guitar Shows

Q: Why haven't you been to more guitar shows lately?

A:  First, we have been, but they are not that great.  Sadly, eBay has made everybody an expert in vintage guitars, and even the most commonplace guitar is now is overpriced and considered to be a "collector's item".  We have lost interest in going to these shows after continually being disappointed.  Additionally, the recent ones we've attended are awash with fake vintage Strats and Teles, and we really don't want any part of that.

If we run across a show that is really cool, you can be assured we'll post it here.
