Hey everyone, its been ages since I updated my news feed; Ive not had much down time. I was on tour for pretty much the first half of the year, following the "Queen Symphonic" tour of Spain, i took another tour show with Moonworld, performing on their "History of Rock" show. This show started out as a few dates in selected cities before settling in "Madrid" for a 3 month run.
On my return from the tour I headed to the UK to film two new "Classic Album" DVD/downloads for Lick Library, Def Leppard "Hysteria" and Pink Floyd "Wish You Were Here". I have some more work on the table from Lick Library that i shall film as soon as my schedule in my studio frees up.
I've been putting in some time on my own brand, "Jamie Humphries Guitar Studio". and have recently filmed a demo/play through video for Wampler Pedals, using the the "Paisley Deluxe" overdrive pedal. What started as a demo piece quickly turned into pretty cool new instrumental, which drew some inspiration from the Dr Greer documentary "Unacknowledged". Head over to the "Music" section of my website where you can download the track fro free, and follow the link below to check out the studio performance. I have some new videos and tracks I'm working on and plan to spend the rest of the year working from my studio producing soon cool content. If you have not already done so, please subscribe to my youtube channel, Jamie Humphries Guitar Studio. Cheers Jamie

Hey guys, I hope you all had a great Christmas, and Happy New Year to you all; here's to a rockin' 2018!! This is just a quick news up date, as i'm flat out busy all ready, and haven't had any time to up date the website. 2018 has got off to an incredible start. I have just joined the Symphonic Rhapsody of Queen tour in Spain. I had a call just last week, and after just one day to prep 38 songs and get a fly rig together I was on a plane heading to Spain for one day of rehearsals before the first show. Its a fantastic show with some great singers and a full orchestra. I am using a very scaled down rig for this tour. Guitar wise I'm using my RS Model 84, my modified BMG plus my custom Music Man Axis, which handles all the songs that need electric and acoustic. I'm using my Mesa Mini Rectifier head into a Two Notes Captor, running into a Two Notes CAB pedal; I'm using an AC30 2x12 impulse response. I have my KAT strap treble boosters, a chorus pedal plus an Ernie Ball ambient delay pedal. I am also using a Mesa Rosette acoustic preamp for my piezo signal. I am just waiting for my new Line 6 G50 wireless to arrive. The tour runs right up to the beginning of March. Right now I'm flying back and fourth between my studio in Stockholm to finish Guitar Interactive work, and London to complete my latest Lick Library DVD. I shall get the dates adde to my website ASAP. Anyway, I have to get back to prepping a Tech Session to film tomorrow, before leaving for Spain for more shows. hope to see some of you at a show.. Jamie

Hi Everyone, just a little news up date; I have been very busy on the Champions of Rock tour that is working its way across Sweden right now to packed out arenas. I am performing along side singers Peter Johansson, Jenna Lee James and Ola Salo. Whitesnake bass legend Neil Murray is also performing on this tour.We kicked off at Subtopia in Stockholm for three days of band rehearsals followed by three days tech rehearsals before hitting the road for our first shows. I have changed a few bits in my rig for this tour; I have added a new TAE 1964 pedal into my rack, which I'm using with a pair of KAT strap treble boosters and a Fryer Treble booster. My Mesa cab is in an isolation box under the stage and is completely dry. We are sending a signal from the Cab Clone on my Boogie head to the input of my post effects, Line 6 Echo Pro and Modulation Pro. WE output from the back of the rack in stereo and send this signal straight to front of house and blend it with the dry cab sound resulting in a wet/dry/wet setup, which sounds incredible. Guitar wise I am using two Red Special's and two Music Man; My main guitar is my RS Custom Model 84, blues my BMG which is in Eb tuning. I am using a Music Man Game Changer for drop D, and my new custom Axis as my regular tuned back up. The tour continues until mid November, so if you're in Sweden please check out the dates on the show page of my site.
