We here at Gear Gods love us some Myrone for a number of different reasons, including, but not limited to, the following:
- He’s a soft-shred pioneer with licks for days, for Chrissakes
- He refuses, I mean refuses, to do any mime-alongs to prerecorded guitar parts in his videos. What you hear is all live (this one time he played in a car was no exception)
- He can bust moves and pull guitar faces, often at the same time
- He makes excellent use of IK Multimedia gear, this time using the Fender Collection 2 for all guitar sounds
Watch Myrone and his group of skeletal boogie machines start slow on the dance floor before taking the party on a trip through hyperspace. Clearly that’s impressive in and of itself, but the tones he pulls out of IK Multimedia’s Fender amp sim package are pretty freakin’ notable too. Don’t forget to give those a critical listen while your mind is blown by mesmerizing visuals.
Also, I feel like I should clarify that Myrone didn’t really dance with skeletons or travel through time and space at warp speed, all while getting down on guitar. What we have here is a textbook example of “movie magic,” and it was actually Trey Xavier who made it seem like it was all happening for real. Except the guitar playing. That totally did happen for real – live, too.
