๐Ÿ’ฌ I just got new guitar, met Marty Friedman, and Life Updates #OhSheep!


Halo guys, it’s Mel i hope you’re doing good! healthy both mind and body so.. as a single mother of single cat mother who had 3 kittens, i have some life updates that i wanted to share with you i won’t play any guitar so, maybe it’ll be kinda boring but if you watch this video until the last minute, you’re a LEGEND so, the first thing i want to share with you is.. let’s do some throwback.. 2018 i ever did a Q&A video and someone asked me “Mel, why you didn’t use well known guitar brand, like Ibanez, Schecter, ESP, or Jackson?” i simplified the answer well maybe back then, that’s not “my time” yet to use these well known guitar brands BUT, NOW.. YAS Ibanez (Passed) Schecter (Passed) and now the newest one.. Jackson (Passed) now, it’s just one more left.. (based on the question) ESP.. come to mama Jackson just gave me this guitar OMG look what i got oh what is it? it looks interesting! OMG, it’s mmm.. *guitar’s head touched the window* It’s King V Phil Demmel signature it has 24 frets and then it has 3 way switch active pick ups and up down tremolo i really missed playing with whammy bar c: *dive bomb test (unplugged)* i really excited and can’t wait to play this guitar Ok, that was the first thing that i want to share with you and then the second one is.. I just met Marty Friedman yes, Marty Friedman! it feels unreal so, i attended his clinic in Ciputra Artpreneur, Jakarta before the clinic started, i talk with him at the backstage Mel: “How could you do that? I mean, being something like this? You’re a self-taught (guitarist) right?” Marty: “We just play music all the time” “but self-taught doesn’t mean you teach yourself” “self-taught is you learn from everywhere” “just means you don’t have 1 teacher” “you learn from me as we sit downand jam and learn one thing from me or two things whatever” “if you join a band, you gotta learn all their songs” “if you go to some kind of guitar seminar you gonna learn few things and advices” “so it’s not really self-taught because you learned it from everyone” he’s a very nice person i just didn’t asked him much of questions because you know.. my mind went blank XD then, i watched his clinic it’s really really amazing it’s his first guitar clinic that i saw and it’s also Marty’s first time for coming to Indonesia isn’t it amazing? omg, i’m so lucky..! ok, then there’s Q&A section and i asked him question in front of a lot of audiences but i’s not so technical nerdies guitar things i just asked him to describe about.. what he feels when he play guitar but in 1 word and his answer is.. “sexy” WOW it very suits him that’s pretty cool! well, each guitarists will have different description in 1 word about what they feel when they play guitar and Marty know thyself do you know thyself? NO? *slapp* ok, and then i ask him another question about.. Indonesian food that he likes haa.. i’m so sorry Marty sensei now, everyone recognize you as Bakso and Nasi Padang eaters (well it’s delicious tho :D) ahh.. i’m sorry it’s a dumb question (for guitar clinic) i also got the chance to play Tornado of Souls solo no, i mean.. i play the rhythm and he play the solo at the backstage it was really great once in a lifetime chance omg, i’m so lucky.. *fan-girl mode on* i also got him signed my new guitar here it is NAUGHTY HANDS erase it uuu.. it’s sad~ but, right after he signed this guitar he knew it’ll be erased so he asked me to keep play the guitar don’t give up and then one day, he’ll sign it again as a single mother of single cat mother who had 3 kittens, well.. my heart bursts So, Marty sensei signed it here.. and i play guitar like here.. i feel like i can absorb his power i mean.. Please, Marty sensei’s sign.. GIVE ME POWER! AAAAAARRRRGGGGHHH That was the second thing that i wanted to share to you and then, here’s the 3rd one you know? I’m writing The Trve Cvte EP and i planned to finish it this year well, the whole song is my “bedroom studio made” so you might hear some unprofessional tone or something.. i also planned to make 1 music video for it i won’t tell you which song it is it was indeed inspired by.. you know? Black Metal’s.. “Trve Kvlt” but mine was Trve Cvte and i ended up.. didn’t want to stuck in 1 (music) genre so you might hear soft sad ballad, Metal.. Sundanese.. Traditional.. even Folk.. Medieval.. or.. Djent? I don’t know :3 “Let’s find out!” -Varg i just hope you guys enjoy it, because i wrote it with all my heart and whatever things that cames through my mind and also it’s my first album ever So, that’s all guys.. the point of this video isn’t about.. to show off how many guitars i had now or how rich i am with these guitars or goals that i have achieved Well no, i just want to share about how i survived living as a dreamer and some dreams came true! it’s really beyond my expectation! haha.. i wanna cry ;_; i also want to thank Mayzan, David, Jackson, Swee Lee music store.. my brother who accompany me to come to Jakarta, also my Top Patrons Carlo, James, Brian, Anwar, etc my dad, my family and everyone else.. and You Too! because.. you know?

  1. Banyak yang nanya "Kenapa pakai bahasa inggris mulu kak?"
    Aku cuma ingin videoku terjangkau secara internasional, lagipula untuk penonton dari Indonesia sejak awal udah aku bikin subtitlenya kok sekalian belajar b. Inggris juga (bukan berarti ga cinta bahasa sendiri ya, tiap manusia punya cara sendiri buat mengekspresikan bentuk cintanya) ๐Ÿ™‚

    Single mother of single cat mother who had 3 kittens hope it can inspire, thanks for watching ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. BIG CONGRATULATIONS on being able to meet and spend some 1on 1 time with Marty Friedman! Thatโ€™s so awesome and mind blowing!๐Ÿคฏ
    I play your Mortal Delusion EP all the time and I wanted to tell you how much it reminds me of another of my favorite guitarists, Eric Johnsonโ€™s first big label release called Tones. His song Soulful Terrain is very similar to the feeling from your songs! Itโ€™s a wonderful, groovy song that uses a lot of single picking and clean, smooth tone. Please check it out and let me know what you think!๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป๐Ÿค˜๐Ÿป

  3. Congrats!๐Ÿ‘โ™ฅ๏ธ๐Ÿ‘โ™ฅ๏ธ๐Ÿ‘

    You absolutely deserve to be recognized by both Marty and Jackson.

    We are ALL better off now that you have a Jackson ๐Ÿ‘.. Play on.
    Enjoy your day!

  7. I really Idolized you the first time at watched your hourglass cover. Keep it up Mel! from Philippines. Keep shredding

  8. Love your playing style, nice spacing/phrasing, melodic so far from what I've heard. I want to get into electric guitar so bad. I bought a Vox amp almost 3 years ago and its been sitting beside my computer desk since ๐Ÿ™ Just need an elec guitar. Maybe can help my depression? Music is very important in my life. You made my day, you seem like such a gentle person (w/ a serious edge, metal is one of my fav genres by far! Look up Celtic Frost, Triptykon, Candlemass.)

  9. Hi Mel..from time to time i see some of your vids..what heavy metal old bands are u into? Are u from indonesia? Im from Manila..take care.

  10. Good for her. Itโ€™s always beautiful to see good people fulfilling their dreams and being rewarded for their hard work.

  11. Please get rid of Islam and the head scarf and your life will be complete , you are lovely , shame to see the cancer of islam in your life

  12. Omg u just meet my idol master tht was jason becker u r so lucky girl salute from malaysia i impressed wth u girl….salam kenal….

  13. It means now you are officially endorsed by swee lee music – jackson indo ? Wow.. cool ! (y) *last indo artist endorsed by jackson was prisa

  14. Adopting multiple styles of music to create a one of a kind style is known as being eclectic. It's a term that applies to many things in the art scene. That's where a musician's future is determined. Anyway Marty is a great guitar player. Never met him before but his style is very similar to that of a lot of metal bands from the 80s with a modern twist. As for meeting famous people, I've only met one and his name is Herman Li.

  15. jackson guitars are Great !!! Congratulations !!! and my favorite Marty Friedman albums are: 1996 – True Obsession and 1994 – Introduction. Keep on rocking sis. !!!

  16. My cute girl… you are not only a talented girl… I love you, you are so cute, your face, your hands, your sight… I wanna hold you strong in my arms ๐Ÿฅฐ
