Scott McGill: Percy Jones... new CD

BRAND NEW CD AVAILABLE with Special Guest Markus Reuter!! http://www.myspace.com/jonesmcgillritchie

This trio produces music like nothing you've heard before! You can download their DEBUT at iTunes, Napster and Rhapsody. Percy Jones is the most revered fretless player alive and has inspired thousands of bassists with his unique style. He has forged his own path in his approach to the instrument, bewitching the listener with what he brings to the music. Scott McGill, Proclaimed "The Thinking Man's Yngwie Malmsteen" by celebrated jazz and fusion author/critic Bill Milkowski, has been playing guitar for over twenty five years. He studied over a decade with noted composer Dennis Sandole (who also taught John Coltrane, Pat Martino, and James Moody, among others). Scott is also breaking new ground with the fretless guitar and iGuitar synth. Ritchie DeCarlo is the driving force behind this music. His combination of bombastic double bass one minute mixed with subtle world music beats the next keeps you guessing. You never know what is coming around the bend with these "over the top" musicians!

Mathias Holm: Dream Catcher...

Mathias Holm:
Hey mates folks and readers!
Quite a while since I wrote something here on my blogg... Well anyway there have been much in my life lately so I haven't had the time for it...

The song which I now have uploaded to my profile is my last song for the album and it will be the title song for the album Dream Catch. I think this song shows all my styles in one piece. If you listen to it I guess you can hear almost all of my influences in it. From songwriting to guitarplaying. Mike oldfield to Al Di Meola. This is not the ending mix of the song so it will maybe sound a bit different on the album later.

A question to you:
I could say the song is in three pieces, which piece of it do you like the most?

If you would like to see me play the solo of it you can watch it on my page or on youtube.

Chris Broderick: MFA interview

Chris Broderick, the incredibly talented (and all around nice guy) guitarist from Megadeth was gracious enough to sit down with us recently, and he gave a great short interview. The guys are very busy (touring with Exodus and Testament) and we were honored for Chris to talk to us about Dave, writing albums, and playing live. Ladies and Gentlemen, Chris Broderick:

Big Robbo: You've been with the band for awhile, had a hand in Engame....we know from your time in Jag Panzer that you're no stranger to playing shows, but playing the shows that Megadeth plays, is that something you had to get used to?

Chris Broderick: Oh definitely. If you see me you might not realize it but when I perform I have a lot of performance nerves. A year from now I'll be more adjusted and equipped to perform in front of people. Megadeth has made me step up and enjoy my game. The scrutiny is much greater at this point  More
