Mats has been playing guitar for 35 years. He’s a self-described “guitar nerd”. When Mats discovered Replay Music about seven years ago he discovered a tool that could help his guitar playing.
Mats like guitar solos. He has a theory that every good guitar solo should contain the following four elements:
1.) The solo should have a good structure, e g start with the lower notes and work its way up the fret board, 2.) It should contain some technically difficult passages without just showing off, 3.) There should be some unexpected tones that stick out, 4.) And it helps if the guitar player has a good vibrato!
Mats uses Replay Music to record his favorite guitar solos and then he uses other software to slow down the recording so he can study the solo note for note.
Some of his favorite guitar players include Jeff Beck, Steve Lukather of Toto and Steve Vai. Mats’ favorite guitar solo is this one by Kee Marcello :
And thanks to Replay Music Mats can now play that solo right along with Kee.
Thanks for sharing your story with us Mats. We are so glad that Replay Music is helping you rock along with the best of them.
Kelly lives in San Francisco. When her friends invited her to a housewarming party at their new apartment near Chinatown, Kelly was at a loss for what to bring as a gift. When she heard that their new apartment had a wok built right into the kitchen counter and she got an idea.
Kelly pulled out her PC and fired up Replay Music and started searching the internet for songs with the word “walk” in the title.
Kelly put together a playlist of songs from the 50’s to now. There were Country songs, Jazz songs, Folks songs, old Rock-n-Roll songs, instrumentals and vocals. A little something for everyone. Kelly created a playlist with over two hours of “walk” music and used Replay Music to burn the playlist to CD. When it came time for the housewarming party Kelly gave her hosts the CD with instructions to play the songs whenever they cooked with their wok. Her friends loved it!
Kelly heard later that her friends listen to the CD while using their wok and it always makes them smile. They love telling other friends about her clever idea.
Thanks for your story Kelly – we are so glad that Replay Music came in handy – and brought some happiness to you and your friends.
We love hearing stories like these. If you have a story about the way you like to use our products please send them to us at: [email protected]
Recently I saw a fun commercial about the NFL draft (don’t ask me why I was watching a commercial on the NFL draft – my husband must have left ESPN on). It was this Deion Sanders Super Bowl Commercial.
Leon Sandcastle Commercial
I immediately wanted to hear more of the song they used in the commercial. A little bit of digging and I found the song, “This Head I Hold” by Electric Guest. Once I knew the song title, I opened Replay Music and went to Grooveshark and captured the song and other songs from Electric Guest. I also used Replay Music to get the song on my phone and I have been listening to it ever since. I am now an Electric Guest fan. And being the good fan that I am I also went to iTunes and supported the band by buying the song. All this thanks to Replay Music.
