Eddie Kramer Tim Pierce Edstortion PhazeVibe Guitar Pedals

Eddie Kramer Edstortion PhazeVibe Guitar Pedals

Eddie Kramer came over for a visit and brought his Edstortion and PhazeVibe Guitar Pedals. Eddie Kramer brought his new Signature Stompbox Guitar Pedals over to my studio recently. He and his partner, Francesco Sondelli, who is the founder of F-pedals, are creating some great new products. The two pedals I tried were the Phazevibe and the Edstortion. I used my Nash Stratocaster, through my Divided by 13 RSA 23 head, recording through an SM 57 microphone. The mic went straight into a BAE mic pre and then through Apogee converters and into ProTools Eddie Kramer is a very […]

How to Solo over Chord Changes Part 1

How to Solo over Chord Changes Part 1 is another video I did with Brett Papa. We are having more and more fun doing these videos such as this How to Solo over Chord Changes Part 1! I brought my Nash Strat, and we both plugged in at low-volume to Brett’s two Divided by 13 amps. The demonstration here on How to Solo over Chord Changes was how to play E major over Blues Rock changes going from E major to A major and then switch to The key of E minor, when the chords changed to C and D. I […]

Crossroads Cream Cover Free Online Guitar Lesson Tim Pierce

Crossroads Cream Guitar Lesson

Crossroads was recorded by Eric Clapton and Cream in 1968 when I was 10 years old. I started dreaming of the guitar around then, and I didn’t start playing till age 12. By the time I was 14 I was playing whatever version of crossroads I could muster. Once again I have to thank Steve Maase for being probably the greatest guitar teacher in the world. We were and still are lucky to have Steve in Albuquerque New Mexico. [column type=”one-half”]For this version of Crossroads I used a BAE DMP Mic Pre. You can see it in the background […]

Mauricio Guerrero Session Guitar Recording Tim Pierce

Mauricio Guerrero Recording Session

Mauricio Guerrero and I both share a history of work with Phil Collins. Mauricio Guerrero brought over an artist he was producing named Barbara Munoz. The production was pretty amazing with real horns and real strings. The arranger is another friend of mine, Jamie Ciero. His writing for the strings and horns was brilliant. I used a newer Gibson Les Paul that I just purchased. It’s actually not a custom shop or anything but it might be my favorite Les Paul!! As usual I’m using a Divided by 13 and one of my favorite delay pedals, the Line 6 Echo […]

Eric Berdon Recording Session

Eric Berdon Recording Session

I do a lot of guitar sessions for Ken Caillat and Eric Berdon, they bring some of the highest quality songs and artists. This song was sung beautifully by a great new artist named Shaena Stabler. Ken produced ‘Rumors‘ by Fleetwood Mac and many other subsequent Fleetwood Mac records, and then he had a second huge success with his daughter Colbie Caillat. I’ve gotten to play on several of Colbie’s records – she has an amazing voice. Eric Berdon is Ken’s partner and he’s a very talented young songwriter, singer and guitarist. I used my Tom Anderson Raven a […]

Solo Guitar Article - Tim Pierce

Solo Guitar on Outro of Song

Here’s a solo guitar on a song for a current Artist – this is in many ways my favorite kind of playing. I have the Les Paul cranked up just enough for sustain but clean enough so you can hear all the notes. Reminds me of the Guitar Solos that were played on one of my favorite records – Deja Vu by Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young,and also the lyrical playing of Bill Dillon on Sarah Mclachlan’s records.   Subscribe to Tim’s newsletter and get access to a private collection of videos and more.
