Frank Gambale: v band video at the musikmesse 2009

News:
12-04-2009:
Frank Gambale and Alain Caron v band... everything about the bands sound processing is virtual, no amps or effects except Roland Virtual system... even the drummer. I would like to thank Frank Gambale for permission to film this session. One slight problem, and this was noted bt all the band members, the bass / drum was a bit boomy... which unfortuneatly makes it onto the video.

Alex Hunter: guitar idol 2009 online final

News:
11-04-2009:
I have to say I'm super impressed with this little guy, how does a guy so young get phrasing like this?!

Alex Hunter says:
This song is called "Take-One" since the performance is literally "LIVE", being recording in exactly ONE take over a backing track by Scott Lerner.

All Software work done by Alex. All lead Guitar by Alex.

This was all improvised with an original Amber Eddie Van Halen Ernie Ball Music Man. The amp was a Budda SuperDrive 45 II running through a 4x12 Voodoo Cabinet, with a DD-7, TS808, and a Boss Compressor.

Thanks a lot for watching!!

Alex Hunter says:
Check out my brand new PRS Cu-22 One-Piece Ten Top!!!!!

its great, and it's straight from Kelly Barber of Action Sound in Kilgore, Texas!!! If you need PROFESSIONAL stuff, screw Guitar Center and head on to Kilgore for some REAL gear.

The video was done in One take. It's strictly a one-time inprovisation to a backing track I found on the Internet.

the guitar looks orange cause of some weird color correction error when exporting in Windows Movie Maker. It's really the vintage yellow.

Let me know what you think!

Tom Quayle, George Marios: Fibenare guitars, T42 fusionoids musikmesse

News:
12-04-2009:
I love these guys... they had to be careful the noise police didn't hunt them down. Some great improvisation from both Tom Quayle and George Marios. We arrived straight from the airport on the Friday morning. It was great to find Tom and George almost straight away. It seemed that you were not allowed to play over a certain level and they kept coming around with sound meters, filling out forms and looking very threatening... It was a real hoot... funnily enough on Saturday we didn't see any at all so it was a normal guitar cacophony, every guitar company for themselves! I also love the guys who ran the stand... brilliant fans of music and just a joy to be with. Check out the Fibenare are amazing guitars. I think Tom and George could have wailed away for days! A big thanks to George for warning me about the "Red Light" area!

Hedras Ramos: guitar idol entrant live, souls of heaven

News:
11-04-2009:
A recent live show from the 16 year old player from Guatemala. Look out for his blues jam tracks which are coming soon including tab.

Hedras Ramos: souls of heaven live 23 Oct 2008




Hedras is a 16 years old young guitar player who began initially playing drums when he was 6 taking lessons from great drummers. While studying drums he discovered, a new love, the Electric Guitar.

Inspired by his dad and all materials in the house like DVDs, CDs, tapes, great guitar amps, guitars, SFX Processors units and mainly the daily contact with the Professional Recording Studio of his father which is a TV and Radio commercial house (www.audio7.ws), he soon found himself immersed in the world of production, singing jingles along with his younger sisters, also doing voice overs for commercials for the Big names in the advertising world.

At age of 8 his dad bought him his first electrical guitar, but it wasn’t until he became 13 that he really took the guitar seriously and began his self-taught studies, getting into his room for 7+ hours daily learning sight reading, scales, chords, harmony, technique, licks, etc.
His father produced and engineered this project, his experience producing records is broad, he also was a founding member and lead guitarist for VOX DEI, a very popular rock band in the 90’s in Guatemala, Mexico, Central America and South America.
