Video of Alex Skolnick at NAMM 2012
Thanks to some connections I was able to attend the NAMM Show this past weekend at the Anaheim Convention Center. In case you don’t know what NAMM is it’s a music industry trade show where artists, merchants, manufacturers and the like get together for four days and introduce the latest products, innovations, etc.
Also at the show artists sign autographs and put on demonstrations of a new products by the companies that endorse them. I was able to capture with my phone one such demonstration. This video below is of Alex Skolnick and was shot by me on my phone. Skolnick plays guitar for heavy metal band Testament, jazz band The Alex Skolnick Trio and Trans Siberian Orchestra. In part one Skolnick demonstrates jazz guitar. In part two he demonstrates heavy metal guitar and in the final part he plays a solo using a 70’s style funk tone. Enjoy.
