Style Pack 4: Roots 'n' Slide

Welcome to the Roots 'n' Slide Style Pack!

I seldom play slide, but when I do I want it to be fat and greasy. So, if that's also your thing, just go ahead and download this pack.

This Style Pack includes a tune, the backing track for the tune and the presets for the AmpliFIRE and Firebox so you can play along with the tune using the exact same presets I used. Further down in this document you can also find the chords for the tune and the production notes so you can see what instruments I used when I wrote/recorded this tune.

For those of you who want to know, I use standard tuning when I play slide.

Below is a short video introduction (Please use the HD setting for much better audio and video):

Style Pack 3: Funk

Welcome to the Funk Style Pack!

Funk is a different thing to different people but to me this tune is funk to the bone. Choppy rhythm guitars played on strat style guitars and slap bass that moves your bottom no matter if you want it to or not.

This Style Pack includes a tune, the backing track for the tune and the presets for the AmpliFIRE so you can play along with the tune using the exact same presets I used. Further down in this document you can also find the chords for the tune and the production notes so you can see what instruments I used when I wrote/recorded this tune.

The main inspiration for the rhythm sound here comes from a mixture of sources that include Prince, David Williams, Paul Jackson, Jr. and Michael Landau. The lead sound I’m not sure about so I’ll leave that open for your own interpretation.

The bass sound was inspired by players like Anthony Jackson, Larry Graham and so many of the bass players I’ve heard walking the NAMM show every year.

Style Pack 2: Los Angeles AOR

Welcome to the Los Angeles AOR Style Pack!

This is the second Style Pack and includes a tune, the backing track for the tune and the presets for the AmpliFire so you can play along with the tune using the exact same presets I used. There's also a PDF document with the chords for the tune and the production notes so you can see what instruments I used when I wrote/recorded this tune.

AOR stands for Adult Oriented Rock and this genre includes giants like Toto, Richard Marx, Mr Mister and Chicago but also bands not so famous to the broader public like Maxus, Average Whote Band, Boz Scaggs and The Tubes. For guitar players, the songs associated with this genre are known to be laced with arpeggiated chords with shimmery chorus sounds and saturated smooth leads and played by monster players like Michael Landau, Steve Lukather and Dann Huff.

The main inspiration for the clean arpeggiated chord sound comes from Michael Landau and I tried to make the sound even and easy to play. The lead sound is more inspired by Steve Lukather’s earlier lead sounds. The single string muted rhythm sound is from Jay Graydon’s book of tricks. The electric bass preset is my go-to sound for electric bass whatever style it may be except for funk. It rarely fails to do the job.

Style Pack 1: Rumble Blues

Welcome to the Rumble Blues Pack!

This is the first Style Pack and includes a tune, the backing track for the tune and the presets for the AmpliFire so you can play along with the tune using the exact same presets I used. There's also a PDF document with the chords for the tune and the production notes so you can see what instruments I used when I wrote/recorded this tune.

Two of the most famous users of the Dumble amps are Robben Ford and Larry Carlton and both are great blues players. Although their amps are both Dumble their sounds are quite different so in this tune, “Double Perspective”, I aimed at finding both their lead sounds. This Style Pack also includes two additional presets for the clean rhythm guitar and electric bass.

Below is a short video introduction:
Please note that the audio in the Style Pack is much better than in the video.
