Hotel California Solo Cover

Here is my cover version of the solo parts for the legendary The Eagles song.
I remember how I kept asking around which pedal I should buy to get that sound when I was a beginner. At some point you realise that it’s not about the pedal :))

Having said that, it’s a Nux Cerberus and Sculpture 😉


I hope you share the fun 🙂

Pink Floyd Solo Cover

In this video that I played all instruments again, I tried to imitate great David Gilmour’s playing. It must have been quite similar that Youtube popped up a copyright claim as soon as I uploaded the video :))
Hope you like it!
Guitars are recorded directly through a Nux Cerberus and Sculpture.

Live @ The Wall Saloon Kadikoy, 19 Feb 2020

Playing with my band on Feb 19th at @thewallsaloon in Kadikoy. Super entertaining setlist of my originals and wellknown songs from artists or bands that I’ve worked with.

Starting time is 21:00 sharp and ends at 23:00. So you can go to bed early for work tomorrow morning. Be there at least half an hour ago. See you there…

My Little Wing Cover is Here

Here is my cover version of an unforgettable Jimi Hendrix song, Little Wing. I’ve played all instruments, recorded, mixed and mastered the song in my studio in Istanbul.

Thanks to Ferhat FIDAN and Serdar Emre UNSAL for their assitance during the drums recording session, and Bugra AKOZEK from Fabien Media for not liking the footage I recorded during the sessions with my phone and providing me a super clean video.

Lead guitars are recorded thru a Nux Cerberus directly connected to the preamp; no amps, no mics…Rhythm guitars are recorded thru an AxeFx ii.

I hope you like it. Please don’t forget to subscribe my website and Youtube channel.
