Sam Vallen: odd not groupings

Unpredictability part 3:
Odd-Note groupings made "easy"

Sam Vallen

tablature can be found at or - in the blog section.

This is the final in a series of three lessons.

Guitarists seem to get stuck in ruts working on triplet and quaver based patterns. I think it's a shame considering the fact that a lot of the new breed of guitar players end up sounding very alike, especially in their faster work, All it takes to sound unique is a little experimentation in your practice time!

And I intend to fix this by showing you some ways you can spice your regular licks up with often overlooked ideas and techniques.

This third and final video covers ways a regular three-note per string scale shape can be adapted via some often overlooked pick strokes or shapes to allow for quintuplets and septuplets to be played with very little effort.

Gear in this video: Ibanez RG350FM with Seymour Duncan pickups, straight into an Orange Tiny Terror combo. The audio examples are the same guitar, but through my ENGL Powerball with a Boss DD-6 in the loop.

Check out my bands:

Quandary- Brisbane based progressive-rock (
After the Reign- Gold Coast based metal (

Andreas Oberg: artistworks jam

Two of today's greatest jazz guitarists collaborate for the first time ever for 5 intense days in Napa California at the studio of ArtistWorks. Video footage of the Guitar Project and behind the scenes video and audio are to be released.
So what happens when two world class guitarists get together for the first time? What if you close the door and tell them “go do something new together"?

Jimmy Bruno and Andreas Oberg had never met until a few weeks ago. Two of today's most talented jazz guitarists had almost comically missed each other in different parts of the world. The ArtistWorks Guitar Project brought them together 5 intense days of exploration, collaboration, performing and just plain jamming several weeks ago. Not only did Napa get awed by a night of incredibly impressive guitar chops, the two wrote an original tune called “Napa Nights".

News: Why Music And Mp3 Blogs Are the New Radio

Why Music And Mp3 Blogs Are the New Radio To The Beggars Group

A guest post by Australian freelance music writer Andrew McMillen.

"It’s kind of crazy how the music industry works; we shout and tell everyone about a new record. “It’s really exciting, it’s great, you can hear it on the radio.. oh, but actually, you can’t buy it for two or three months. Is that okay? Can you just not download it off of anywhere? Just wait two or three months, we’ll get it in the shops soon!"

That's Simon Wheeler, Director of Digital at The Beggars Group, speaking at a panel at One Movement For Music in Perth, Australia last month. Footage is embedded below, and his words are transcribed underneath.

"So, going against that, we know that fans are passionate about an artist, and they’re very excited about a new album. So to be able to give them something to satiate that demand has been quite effective. There’s also the purpose of giving people a piece of music to ‘try before they buy’, if you like. We get a lot of love and a lot of coverage in the blog world, because I think our artists are very suited to that world."
