"I have selected two extra tracks to include on my forthcoming album The Campaign (out in December on Shredguy Records). One seems to be a 'cult' favorite, but has never been issued on CD, 'Eternal Winters' from a 1996 Darken demo. The other track I am asked often about, 'Infinite Opposition' from a solo EP that Wild Rags Records released also in 1996. This will bring the album's total to ten songs. Look for that soon in addition to more Godless Rising information to be posted here also. Thanks for the support!"
A demo track is available on Bravewords http://www.bravewords.com/knuckletracks/?tid=323
This is a live version from my DVD "Humanchico: live and more".

More details to follow. In the meantime here's a demo of the ML1 prototype. This one helluva hunk of wood and sounds damn sweet with the Marshall Haze. the guitar is designed so you can easily swap in and out your favourite bits, like the pickups, that said they sounded the ones in the prototype sounded killer to me! All in all you'll get a lot of bang for your buck.

*** USTREAM SHRED SHOW*****
watch for it. GMP show/Shred live with Marshall Harrison (two seperate names)
I'm not sure how this works yet, but it appears to be real time video streaming... one downside is I don't think you can go and see shows that you might have missed. It has real time IM too, plus links to facebook, youtube etc.
These licks; they are very inspired from some of my favourite players including Frank Gambale and Derek Taylor in particular. Both of whom have inspired hundreds of people including me to create similar licks and ideas. I might be sloppy, but I hope these licks either inspire you to listen to the fore mentioned players, or inspire you to create something terrifying!
The first lick is based around E minor pentatonic in the style of the legendry Derek Taylor using legato and two finger tapping, however you can play it any way you want to. Break down the lick string by string, and make sure the notes flow together best as possible (although I do not seem to demonstrate that in the video), and keep string noise to a minimum and enjoy!
The second lick is also based around the E minor pentatonic, using 2-1-2 groupings in sets of quintuplets. Be sure to study the pick directions on the tab! This lick is very Frank Gambale based, he wears the best shirts in the business (maybe this is the key to his unique picking style) check him out if you havent already!
If you have any questions ,quiries or would like a powertab.

Sam Bell - Pentatonic Lick Lesson
LYNCH MOB/ex-DOKKEN guitarist George Lynch spoke to Metal Asylum in New Jersey about the latest Lynch Mob album Smoke And Mirrors, touring plans, guitars, and the possibilities of a Dokken reunion.full interview
Here are a few excerpts from the chat:
Metal Asylum: Tell us how you recaptured that classic Lynch Mob Wicked Sensation sound on the new album Smoke And Mirrors?
Lynch: "Well it wasn’t like we went in trying to recapture any type of sound but once we turned into a band after working with each other for several months, between Oni Logan and myself, we subconsciously knew that Wicked Sensation was what we were going for. But…we went into the right studio and used the right equipment to make this the proper follow up to Wicked Sensation."
Metal Asylum: Does it feel like a classic Lynch Mob album to you?
Lynch: "Yeah…it does, but evolved, older, wiser, you know. We were just much more efficient with our time and money this time. Between the writing, the mixing, recording, it was stretched out over some time. If you squeeze it all together it was about six weeks. But the writing was really spread out over several months because we would play some shows, come home and write, go back out on the road again. But the actually recording was done in four days, guitars, bass and drums. The vocals took some more time."
Section A album completed:
The new Section A album has now been mixed and mastered. The album is called Sacrifice and here's a complete track list: Danger, The City Is Falling, Sacrifice, Lionheart, Room With A View, Land Of The Desert Sun, Intoxicated, Heroes, Concealed In Lies and Days Of Sorrow.
