Well maybe you could post the tabs in the Runners High topic for all the musicians out there if you have time.

You are most welcome - but it was only a shot I took with my iPhone. I'll try to do a proper scan soon and update the post then.

As for the tabs, I think this is kind of a grey area - whilst we aren't too bothered scanning pics from magazines (which we shouldn't, really), but I've not seen any scans of tabs from printed/published material on S-H.

To take a leaf from the 'not sharing of official releases of the band' policy, I think we shouldn't - as S-H may get into trouble if word comes out that some industrious S-H member churns out scans of published tabs!

Sorry if this is out of topic for this thread, mods/admins! (Do you guys share this view?)

PS: I have a few of their tab books, and 5-6 GGGs/GIGs and the SCANDAL tabs are right handy when you're stuck!!!

EDIT: Here you go. Didn't want to damage my magazine, so that's the best you are gonna get, I'm afraid. ^^

"Let's play 「Koisuru Universe」! feat. MAMI"

For this course we had MAMI teach four of the fundamental techniques that appear in SCANDAL's new song 「Koisuru Universe」! Check out the December issue of Go!Go!GUITAR for practice phrases and her personal advice!

It depends on the Go!Go!GUITAR article/lesson. If the lesson is on phrases from a song, then the video will be short like this one. Pretty much having the featured artiste show the most challenging/interesting part of the song - the rest is easily done by merely reading the score in the mag.

The last video featuring MAMI on this mag was like 30 secs!

I'd love to see them featured in Guitar Player (the leading U.S. guitar magazine). They are exactly the kind of band the magazine needs to showcase. As much as I might admire their playing, I don't need to see Billy Gibbons or Joe Satriani on the cover anymore. It's complicated, but by some measures electric guitar sales are down, some say due to EDM. Just as they inspire young Japanese to pick up guitars they might do the same in the U.S. if more people knew about them! There's so much good, exciting music being made in Asian countries, I wish they'd write about that.

And by the way, Go!Go!GUITAR is a much better title than Guitar Player.

After buying a few copies, it does appear that the mag’s demographic is aimed at the youth, especially high schoolers/college kids, market. There are regular features of high school band clubs/keiongaku-bu in a segment of the mag, and tips on guitar playing from real J-rock/pop artistes that may look like basic stuff to experienced players. There had been articles on how to function in a band, incl. singing tips, how to use an amp etc. MAMI used to have a regular column on GGG. The music notation is brilliant too, ranging from entire band scores to simple acoustic/strummy version of otherwise difficult songs. GiGS tend to be a bit more “serious”/adult in tone than GGG. As for Guitar Player, I can’t imagine a feature on J-rock will be anything more than a special article for interest (it is a niche market in the west), and no offence to SCANDAL, the editors may look up to more seasoned Japanese guitarists to feature.

Just to get back on topic, my copy has arrived but I’m yet to pick it up. Can’t wait!

There are regular features of high school band clubs/keiongaku-bu in a segment of the mag, and tips on guitar playing from real J-rock/pop artistes that may look like basic stuff to experienced players. There had been articles on how to function in a band, incl. singing tips, how to use an amp etc. MAMI used to have a regular column on GGG. The music notation is brilliant too, ranging from entire band scores to simple acoustic/strummy version of otherwise difficult songs. GiGS tend to be a bit more “serious”/adult in tone than GGG. As for Guitar Player, I can’t imagine a feature on J-rock will be anything more than a special article for interest (it is a niche market in the west), and no offence to SCANDAL, the editors may look up to more seasoned Japanese guitarists to feature.

Just to get back on topic, my copy has arrived but I’m yet to pick it up. Can’t wait!

I agree they won't be on the cover of a U.S. based guitar magazine, but an article would be nice. As a subscriber of Guitar Player I hate to say it but I'm tired of reading about Alex Lifeson and Pat Metheny (good as they are). If they don't feature younger talent they'll eventually fade away. And they do sometimes write about guitar players who are not "technicians." Hell, in the U.S. Taylor Swift is single-handedly credited with reviving acoustic guitar sales! Anyway, I reached out to their editorial staff to make the suggestion.
