Skaburbian Collective: Reggae Music From Sweden

Skaburbian Collective

The Skaburbian Collective is a reggae, rock outfit that calls Sweden their home base.  Yes, I know it sounds a little strange to think that the sunny vibes and reggae music is coming from Sweden but the Skaburbian Collective is much more than just a reggae band. I had the opportunity to  ask the guys from Skaburbian Collective a few questions to find out how they became a band and what pushed them into this genre of music.  One thing…

Three Beards

Three Beards is the next band that Guitar News Daily is going to shine a light on.  Before the release of their new album we had the opportunity to talk with Hank Barbe who is one half of the band.  Yes I know if they are ‘Three Beards” Hank should be 1/3 of the band but we’ll clear that up later. Who Is Three Beards Q: Who is Three Beards.  Where are you from?  How long have you been playing…

Linkin Park vs Sublime with Rome

This definitely falls into the category of news of the weird.  Maybe I should have titled this article ‘Did Linkin Park Drop A Dimebag on Sublime With Rome?’  This isn’t the kind of thing you would expect to hear when discussing two bands.  It seems even more strange to me considering how quickly the push to legalize marijuana is making its way across the nation. No matter what side of the fence you are on when it comes to the…

Nashville Outlaws: Motley Crue Country Tribute Reveal Album

Posted 20 May 2014 in Artist News, Music, News, Performance, Recording

Motley Crue has built up the reputation of being one of the hardest rocking, hardest partying and long lasting bands in the history of heavy metal.  There is no doubt at all that Vince Neil, Nikki Sixx, Tommy Lee and Mick Mars have earned their reputation.  There have been monstrous hit records, binge drinking and drugging, car crashes, meltdowns and even a homemade porno.  So you can imagine my surprise when I learned that the band has endorsed a tribute…

How To Read Guitar Tabs

Posted 29 Jan 2014 in Electric Guitar, General News, Music, News, Performance

Traditional music notation may be more technically accurate, but tabs are pretty much the default way of displaying music for the guitar. Not only are they simpler to understand, they’re also much easier to create with standard word processing software – leading to a boom in user-generated guitar tabs. If you’re not familiar with the basic idea of tablature, learning the basic principles behind it, how to read it and where to find user-created tabs gives you the fundamental knowledge…

Christopher Lee

Remember a couple weeks ago when we informed you about actor Christopher Lee’s death metal Christmas cover? No? It was named “Jingle Hell”? Really? Well if you really don’t remember that, here’s a link to that post, but I digress. That song, which you may or may not have heard of, has landed a spot on the Billboard Hot Sales Singles charts. Pretty impressive for a 91 year old, no? So just how high did this song chart? It’s currently…
