• 🎵Recorded a cover of the 🎸 solo for Ghosts, by the Canadian band Big Wreck. Had to learn all the parts, including bass and drums because there were no good backing tracks. The kind of song that I liked from the first listen on the radio. youtu.be/QhcVi13gY…

  • 🎵 I’ve recorded a rock cover of a famous soviet-era cartoon theme, Nu Pogodi, followed by some 🎸 shredding. Also, it’s my 🥁 debut. I’ve got Roland eDrums for the New Year and been self-learning drumming since. It’s fun. www.youtube.com/watch

  • People still live rock! #Eurovision

  • I’ve come a long way music-wise since this video but the lyrics on Swift language in this Karma Police parody cover are still valid: www.youtube.com/watch

  • 🎵 My latest song, Oh Dear World, will be aired tonight and tomorrow on Will Keenan’s show on @capemayradio 📻. Tune in online at 9pm EST at www.capemayradio.org. 🎸 Exciting. First time on terrerstrial radio.

  • 🚨New music video coming up. After 20 years, I can finally play the guitar parts in Dream Theater’s Erotomania, not perfectly but good enough to leave it behind me. It’s probably the most technical piece I’ve mastered yet. The video premiers Monday at 11:30EST.

  • 🎵 The “Radio Edit” of my latest track, “Oh Dear World”, is now available everywhere. Melancholic rock meets progressive metal in the end. Links are here: distrokid.com/hyperfoll…

  • Hell yeah!

  • I’ve released a “radio edit” of my latest song, “Oh Dear World”. More than a shorter intro, I’ve tuned the vocals and remixed it for more clarity. Available now on Bandcamp and will be streaming in about 10 days. jacobgorban.bandcamp.com/track/oh-…

  • A music track I won’t release, so take a listen

    I wrote and recorded this riff-based part a couple of months ago and thought of making it an instrumental track. But at the same time I’ve been writing a new song and eventually decided to use the riff from here for the new song. So I’m happy to post this recording, as it’s something that won’t get released after that. Now, time l to start producing this new song. I’m calling it “Spares”.

  • 🎵 Yay! My Axel F / Beverly Hills Cop theme guitar cover video has now reached 1000 views on YouTube. Only the third video to reach this (arbitrary) milestone. 🎸

  • Never too late to learn another classic solo and try achieving a new (for me) sound. GnR - November Rain

  • My new single, Oh Dear World, is out. Go on an emotional and introspective journey with this melancholic progressive rock/metal song featuring my friend Joby on the vocals. I’m really proud of this one. Use Bandcamp link to listen if you have no streaming services access.

  • New lyrics - "Spares"

    Working on lyrics for a new song. I don’t have music yet. Usually, for me, it’s the other way around - it starts with music. But this time I had an interesting idea for lyrics and I’m close to finishing, after several writing sessions. Came up with interesting rhyming rhythm for them, too, so it’s going to dictate some of the melody. Current title - “Spares”.

  • Writing and recording the guitar and bass parts on this section was tricky. But not as tricky as some other. Excited about this new song I’m working on. 🎵🎸

  • TZ repost: I’ve published a performance video of my song “Seven Years and Seven Months”, which is light rock track, dedicated to my daughter. This is in additional to the lyrics video that’s already on YouTube youtu.be/wLUjI-O5T…

  • 🎵Listening to the new album by Kansas, which was released last night. Very progressive yet melodic, great violin 🎻parts. music.apple.com/ca/album/…

  • 🎵 NEW MUSIC 🚨 My song “Seven Years and Seven Months” is out on Bandcamp now. The song is a light and bright pop-rock, with some jazzy harmony, dedicated to my daughter. It’s also a good day to support musicians on the platform today, as they waive their fees this Friday.

  • A new original song is coming soon. It’s quite different from my regular writing, and it’s dedicated to my daughter.

  • My parody cover of John Lennon’s Imagine, called “Imagine, there’s no Facebook” has just reached 1000 views on YouTube, the second of my videos to do so. Axel F cover is looking forward to be the third.

  • I’m making real progress with studying Dream Theater’s Erotomania on 🎸. It’s crazy hard in some parts. I first started it maybe 20 years ago but I’m back at it now that my technique got better. How could Petrucci write these parts is beyond me. youtu.be/j0G5r-89G…

  • Here’s a short clip from the concert on Saturday, covering Beatle’s Birthday. @johnphilpin

  • Poll: if you’re a musician 🎵 (play an instrument 🎸🎷🥁🎹, sing 🎤, write 🎼, produce or anything related), professionally or as a hobby, please reply with what you do and a link, if you want to share. I’ll then collect and post a summary.

  • So this happened yesterday. I got to see Geddy Lee (of the band Rush) and get his new book about bass guitars signed. The first such event of this kind for me.
