Alex Lifeson: rush back in 2010?

Alex Lifeson and Rush could be back on the road with a new album in 2010.
The trio would love to work again with Nick Raskulinecz, who co-produced the last studio album, 'Snakes & Arrows,' but he'll have to hang on a bit longer.

"I think Nick calls the office once a week," laughs guitarist Alex Lifeson, "just to make sure we're still planning on getting back to work at some point."

Lifeson, lead singer-bassist Geddy Lee and drummer/lyricist Neil Peart played 120 shows behind 'Snakes & Arrows' and "were pretty beat by the end of it," says Lifeson. "We'd been working constantly for the last eight years or so, and really needed a break, and decided to take a year off. We're sort of coming to the end of that period.

Video Lessons on DVD:
In this short course I teach step by step how to create a play-back in Sonar 6, of course I'll be teaching only the main controls to make a song, because Sonar is a very vast. We will learn to record audio and MIDI tracks, applying effects, auxiliary channels, basic mixing and mastering. In this lesson I'm showing a recording via MIDI controller keyboard, but not all have such equipment, so I'm available, too, another way for creation of MIDIs "without using the keyboard," It is therefore used another program to generate the MIDIs with ease, you just need to write CIFRA, that's right, the figure, and the program will generate the midis of bass, drums and other instruments. In the video I also give tips on writing as well as indication of great plugins to facilitate the recording. details

News: Six String Bliss on twitter

About Six String Bliss:
After years of playing guitar PT and Pipes wanted to share the information they learned as well as create an online guitar community! With podcast gaining poularity they found this to be the perfect media. Six-String Bliss was born. Six-String bliss (6SB) is a weekly guitar realated podcast. Every week features a Guitarist of the week as well as other topics. PT and Pipes give you a candid look at the world of guitars. Sometimes it is new gear reviews, sometimes it is instruction on how to change a guitar string. One thing remains though, it is a guitar podcast.

Recently with the creation of this website along with the web-forum Pt and Pipes begin to create a community of guitarists. Have a guitar related question? You have come to the right place!
