Marshall Harrison: 2^3=8

Title says it all. Be sure to hammer only no PULL-OFFs (YUCK), practice slowly too.

If in Houston on the 21 of NOV 2009, go to House of Blues to see Zappa plays Zappa. Marshall Harrison (yours truly) might make a surprise appearance.

Orianthi: Thanks her fans for the support after Michael Jacksons death.

From A Message From Orianthi:
I wanted to thank you all for your support and messages. I am so grateful to have been able to play guitar with Michael Jackson and the band. Working with Michael was a life-changing experience, one I will never forget. It was awesome watching Michael dance and sing at rehearsals with us. He looked so happy. He was a musical icon and wonderful person and he has left us all too soon. I am really saddened by Michael’s passing and send my deepest condolences to his family.

You will be hearing more from me soon as I need some time to reflect. Keep checking back - the new official website will launch here soon!

- Peace and love Ori

Shane Gibson: SchwarZenatoR.. they're back

Exclusive: Austrian Death Machine Frontman, Schwarzenator Guitarist Talk All Things Arnold
Come with us if you want to live.

Ever hear a comedian tell a joke you swear you’ve heard before? It happens all the time. Some comics crib from each other - with permission or not - and sometimes it’s just a merry coincidence that they stumbled upon the same bit.

Like, in an interview yours truly did late last year with Brian Posehn - the Paul Bunyan of alternative comedy - he revealed that he and his buddy Seth Rogen had both come up with jokes revolving around the same premise: “What if my dick could fart?”

Recently, the IndiePit Blog’s nose caught the scent of another funny coincidence - this one pertaining to music, though: There are at least two parody side projects in Southern California devoted to Arnold Schwarzenegger and featuring members of two really big heavy-metal bands.

For one, there’s Austrian Death Machine, led by Tim Lambesis of San Diego death-metallers As I Lay Dying - we’ve known about them since they formed last year. But recently (thanks to IndiePit’s Kristian Habenicht), we’ve also been introduced to Schwarzenator, of which Korn guitarist (and Berklee College of Music grad, ahem) Shane Gibson is a conspirator. As it turns out, the band we just found out about has been around for much longer than ADM.

Mika Tyyskä: fastfinger's blog is back online!

The power of 5 chords [ Big Trummors ]
5 chords aka power chords are absolutely beautiful. They leave more options on what you play on top of them. As you probably know 5 chords are made of just the root and the fifth note. No thirds to make it major or minor. Some people say 5 chords are not really chords at all, it's just the interval of five. I love power CHORDS!

Here's a funny thing that happened with the solo of Big Trummors (from Mr. Fastfinger's album). When I was working on the solo I automatically started playing on Aeolian mode / minor scale together with minor pentatonic scale ( with perhaps a hint of blues pentatonic).

R Elias Garcia, 241 - S. Galleries Joseph (in front of Babylon CC Minutes of the 3rd season of CP)
It is with great honor that the 4th of December 2009, Friday, around 19 pm will conduct a workshop at the music store carbon Amadora (Amateur) based on my most recent original work, Karma 6.

I am very happy to accept this invitation, Carbono Amadora is a specialty store selling CDs and vinyl with a personalized service, they lack commercial spaces like this which make us feel at home.

Jose Luis Santander: Leprechaun now available to purchase

Jose Luis Santander says:
Leprechaun is a Chilean band that delivers prog rock with a jazz-rock orientation. The band was founded and is currently led by guitarist Jose Luis Santander (experienced in the world of prog as a member of Subterra); he's supported by drummer Gonzalo Ubilla, keyboardist Martin Sepulveda and bassist Miguel Fonseca. Fonseca entered the band in early 2007, which meant the current line-up was complete. The band's material will catch the attention of informed listeners while also appealing to wider audiences; the individual tracks somewhat compact, yet demanding in terms of melodic arrangement and performance. The jazzy flavors are predominant, combining the energy of classic fusion bands such as Return To Forever and Weather Report with the power of contemporary references such as Tribal Tech and Planet X.
