Vinnie Moore: UFO play Millennium Music Hall Thursday 29th April

UFO play Millennium Music Hall
Millennium Plaza
Cardiff
CF10 1LA
Thursday 29th April
7.30pm
Tickets £20 advance from usual outlets

In all the excitement of The Globe venue working on soundproofing, we wouldn't want you to forget this one-off show we're promoting in the larger Millennium Music Hall this Thursday evening.

For UFO, it’s always the audience who passes the final judgement on the quality of a song. Only when a number has proved its worth at a UFO gig, can Mogg and the rest of the band be confident that it will also stand the test of time. So the live situation always plays a decisive role in the back of the minds of UFO’s creative spirits when they start working on a new album. “The parameters for our new tracks are that they have to work live,” he explains the selection criteria applied to the material on The Visitor, which UFO are planning to tour with extensively this year. “So clear arrangements, catchy melodies and a certain energy are required – all elements which we paid attention to when we worked on The Visitor.” The new UFO album includes almost a dozen new compositions.

The three original band members, Phil Mogg (vocals), Andy Parker (drums) and Paul Raymond (guitar, keyboards) plus American world-class guitarist Vinnie Moore composed more than 35 tracks for their latest album (bass player and original member Pete Way is currently suffering from a liver disease and was unfortunately not available for the studio production), 13 of which were thoroughly tested at an intensive meeting in Hannover, Germany before they were arranged in detail and rehearsed. Drums and bass parts were recorded immediately afterwards at the Area 51 Studio in Celle, while Paul Raymond contributed rhythm guitar and keyboards in London and Vinnie Moore put down additional rhythm guitar parts as well as the guitar solos in Delaware, USA.

When Phil Mogg travelled to Area 51 in February 2009 to record his vocal parts, the tracks already featured clearly defined outlines. “All those who have been into UFO for a long time will find all our characteristic trademarks on The Visitor, and anybody new to the band will enjoy our enthusiasm and dynamism,” frontman Phil Mogg enthuses on the subject of the new songs. The Visitor sees the band benefiting especially from their collaboration with Vinnie Moore, who joined UFO in autumn 2003 and has made an excellent impression on the albums, You Are Here (2004) and The Monkey Puzzle (2006), and on the band’s tours. Mogg: “Without running down previous UFO line-ups – it’s been a long time since we had a team as strong as this one. Vinnie contributes his energy and amazing guitar technique, and in Andy’s return we’ve seen the reappearance of a musician who has always been very important to the band’s original sound.”

So it’s no surprise that The Visitor features the same musicality and energy which UFO fans have come to cherish from the band’s tours in the past five years. Traditional rock music that could hardly sound more classic, with gritty hooks, Vinnie Moore’s powerful riffs and leads, and Phil Mogg’s lyrics full of eccentric humour, as well as a talent for observation and occasionally great depth.

Guthrie Govan: election dates move free webcast one day forward!

Ok guys we've had to change the date of Guthrie's webcast from the 6th of May to the 5th!!

Try as we have, Gordon Brown, David Cameron and Nick Clegg cannot shift their prior arrangement of battling it out for the UK's Election on the 6th so we'll have to move our special event instead! Unfair we know, but still we will accommodate the Election as a number of people have already highlighted the clash plus we have a sneaky suspicion that at least one of the candidates might want to tune in and watch the webcast so you never know who might be joining in the chat?

So thanks for registering in the first place and please update your diary for the 5th of April at 7:00pm UK time.

See you on the 5th!!

Jonas Tamas: major arpeggio w/ tapping with tab

A tapping arpeggio exercise with hammer-ons from nowhere.
Download the TAB from here: http://www.4shared.com/file/lqtaXgBO

It is not an easy exercise, but if you play it very slowly at first then it will be really fun. The hardest places are where you must hammer on a new string (this is the so called "Hammer-ons from nowhere") which is used by a lot of great guitar players, most notably Greg Howe. Try to synchronize the movement of the two hands, so that you hammer on the new string exactly the moment when you are finished with the previous string. (This is most important at the second half of the exercise when you are going from the lower strings to the higher ones.)
On the guitar tablature, "t" means the notes which must be tapped.

The music at the end of the video is Golden Sun, from the album Jonas Tamas: Sharp Guitars From A Flat Planet.
