This is for demo and educational purposes only, PLEASE PURCHASE the original Journey CD from iTunes and others. This is my band doing Separate Ways. Roy did the vocals, drums and keys and Don did the bass track. Roy sent the file to me and I added the guitar part. I used the AxeFx II's USB to do two tracks and two reamped tracks. 1 performance and you get as many layers as you want, in this case there are 4 actual guitar tracks plus the 2 dry tracks that I used to reamp. I mute the dry tracks during mixing. There are no track eq's or blocking eq's on the guitar.

I love this riff, Intro to White Lion's Hungry. I'm using the Axe-Fx XL with FW 19. I've also changed my usual amp model to the 5153 100w Red. Direct to my MacBook's line IN. Don't forget to purchase White Lion's Pride CD!!

Here's a Journey cover called "Anyway You Want It" The backing track was done by my band mates. Roy Nichol does all the vocals...AMAZING!!! Don Lecompte plays bass and I did the guitar. I'm using Suhr Aldrich pickups...man do I like them. I hate passive pickups but these are just incredible!!! Love them! Using my Suhr OD100se+ into a Suhr 2x12" cab miked with an Apex 435 and a Shure SM57. I accidentally damaged my Apogee Duet so I borrowed an Edirol UA-25 I used my Joe Meek Twin! as the mic preamp and went into Logic Pro 9 Mark

Testing my new Apogee Duet and SM57 with Garageband. I'm using my Suhr Modern and OD10se+ into a Randall 2x12" with Celestion 70/80's. I am at a fairly low volume. Pickup is a Duncan Blackout AHB3. Like always this solo is not note for note but my take on it :) Mark

It's been awhile. I'm finally settled in my new place in California so I thought I'd do a cover. No guitars on the backing track just me. I overdubbed the rhythm under the solos. I do NOT own the rights to this music and it is presented for demonstration purposes only. Please buy Def Leppard Pyromania from Amazon or many other retailers.

This is for educational purposes only. Please purchase Def Leppard's Pyromania, cd or download from iTunes. This is to demonstrate the AxeFx2. The backing track had ZERO guitar on it. All guitar parts are from me playing. This is not to try and copy the original recording's tone, just a demo of how I would play it in a live situation. This is one stereo guitar track except a rhythm track was added for the guitar solo.

Of course it's not perfect but it's a fun tune. It's tuned down 1/2 step from the original. All the guitars were played in the take you see here. There were no guitars audible on the backing track. Please purchase Dio music from iTunes and other retailers. Dio is a legend in Hard Rock and so is Vivian Campbell. I'm using the Axe-Fx II XL and my Gibson Custom Shop Lifeson Sig Axcess LP direct into Logic ProX for this demo.

This is how I would play this tune live, not perfect, not the way Steve Lynch played it. Still a fun song to listen to and a very tricky song to play. There are no guitars on the backing tracking. All the guitar is me playing through the AxeFx 2. Fender Strat has a Motor City Hot Head in the bridge position.

I learned this last night so be kind :) It's far from perfect. I am using the Suhr Riot Distortion into the CLEAN channel of my OD100..no distortion from the amp itself all from the Riot. I used an SM57 and some cheap Apex condenser mic into my Apogee Duet into Logic on my MacBook Pro. I used a Randall 2x12" with Celestion 70/80s. I stuck the cab in my bathroom and played along with the backing track. I did NOT double the guitar just added the harmony guitar solo. I got the backing track from FreshBT. There are no guitars on the backing track except for the rhythm parts during the solo sections and small parts here and there. I didn't learn the harmony solo parts correctly. I overdubbed the harmony parts. The end solo is just improvising.

This is a cover of Journey's Stone In Love. This is a live version that SamHill used to cover. The backing track is by Roy Nichol, Don Lecompte and Mark Day. I place some rhythm guitar behind the solos before I played the song on video. Roy Nichol is doing the singing and playing drums He does a bang up job and Don is solid as a rock. Roy is now the permanent drummer for April Wine. This is for demonstration purposes and contains no recording of the original Journey song. Please purchase the original Journey recordings from iTunes, etc.

One of my all time favorite solos from Night Ranger. Dueling guitar mayhem. The backing tracking was done by my band dudes Roy Nichol (April Wine drummer) and Don Lecompte bass. I kept all the flubs and mistakes. I did have a very nice track but posting that would be, not accurate. This is a single take. AxeFx pitch block supplying the harmony guitars. Charlie patiently sitting behind me.

This time I thought I'd let you guys see the other dudes in the band. All instruments were recorded by us, NO backing track...we are the backing track. I used my AxeFx direct into an Apogee Duet. I recorded ONE stereo track, NO doubling. My first time doing this kind of video editing and I am kind of green at it, not to mention my 4 year old MacBook Pro was struggling at times . I should have shot everything in 720p instead of 1080p. When I exported the vid I dropped it to 720p so it looks a little funky. Learn as you go I guess :) Roy Nichol: Drums, Vocals and Keyboards Don Lecompte:Bass Mark Day: Guitar Mark

We had a request to do a Dokken Under Lock And Key sound demo, so I put this together yesterday. BE100, Torpedo Live and my FX rig. No guitars were on the original backing track. I overdubbed the rhythm for the solo part. The main guitar is one track including the solo. Gibson LP Axcess with Duncan JB.

Here's my attempt at recreating a TNT Ronni LeTekro type guitar tone on the AxeFx. Ronni uses a BOSS BF2 to get his tone. He sets it so it is like a notch filter or PEQ. Before you guys start getting on me about too much gain please download the preset and check the settings...the gains are set pretty darn low and I am NOT using the SPC control on my guitar...lol BTW the preset is available through the AxeFx Editor/Preset mgr/AxeChange Tab Bank K.

All guitars are played by me through the AxeFx II XL Quantum 4 FW. I'm using a Jackson PC-1 with a Seymour Duncan Distortion in the bridge. Elixir Strings and Gravity picks. Celestion speakers! There are NO GUITARS on the backing track. Yes it is heavier than the original. The solo is double tracked.

This is for demonstration purposes only. Please purchase Judas Priest music from iTunes and other retailers. They kick ass!!! I've done this tune before a few years back but I wanted to do it in my new digs with FW 17.02. Fun tune. I thought I'd leave the mistakes in. It's too hard to start over with 3 cameras and a DAW, lol. Screw it if you can't make a mistake or two or three, it's like playing live. After 30 years of playing live I've made enough mistakes I should get a few free here lol. This Gibson sounds so great with the Axe-Fx, plays great too!!
