New song released: Bernadette

New Bumblefoot song release

 Guns N' Roses guitarist Ron 'Bumblefoot' Thal has released the first of a series of singles, a punky guitar-virtuosic cover of the Four Tops' 1967 Motown hit "Bernadette."  The song was recorded in the weeks surrounding Ron's first tour with GNR as their new guitarist in 2006.

The song is available in MP3 (320kps), AAC, and higher-quality formats FLAC, MP3 HD, Apple Lossless and WAV. An instrumental version of the song is also available in these formats.

For guitarists, a "Player Pack" includes a 12-page transcription of the entire lead guitar track (PDF file), accompanied by a 'Backing Track' version of the song (in both MP3 and WAV formats) with everything except the lead/solo guitar parts, so you can play along.

And for the studio-savvy, a "Producer Pack" of mix “stems” - six separate files of drums, bass, rhythm guitar, lead guitar, vocals and backing vocals that you can load into your multi-track software and play with levels, edit, and make your own mixes.

Scarlet Haze singer Kat Perkins comments on Ron Thal

Kat Perkins of Scarlet Haze tells about their brand new single "Reach Down" which features Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal from Guns N Roses on guitar...

"My guest guitarist, Ron Thal of Guns N' Roses, shapes this song with a sort of call and response with my voice and of course, his solo takes the listener to a whole different kind of exciting climax. Ron has a very special touch that musically completes this song in so many ways."

"The Adventures Of Bumblefoot" CD & transcription book...!

My debut CD "The Adventures Of Bumblefoot" is re-released, along with a transcription book of the album - woohoo!   It's instrumental music, originally released in '95, appeals to fans of Zappa-type-quirky-stuff and fancy-shmancy guitar playin'. The book is 8.5"x11", 200 pages, I transcribed it. The book and autographed CD ($5 per CD are donated to Multiple Sclerosis research) are available exclusively at my webstore now!
