1st LIVE4GUITAR competition

Tony MacAlpine: i heart guitar and guitarjar interviews!!

How is writing for Seven The Hardway different from writing your solo material?

Well, every vocal record is a lot different from any instrumental project that you’re gonna undertake, because you’re writing things that have different types of foundations for lyrics and melody lines. In that expanse it’s way different. The instrumental music is not really built along those lines. I always say it’s more of a sonata form. So it’s a much different approach but it’s something I’ve always enjoyed. It’s wonderful to work with these guys in that format. Mark’s such a wonderful singer, so it’s really a lot of fun.

Did you guys write independently? Together? Both?

We did both. We did some things together, some things independently, some ideas were written independently then brought together, Virgil wrote Guilty… different things, different approaches.

Liar’s a really great opening track.

Liar was a song that took a lot of different shapes and different turns. Working with [producer] Roy Z who produced it and got this thing together. There were a lot of midnight hour changes to that song and it was really quite a surprise to see where it started and where it ended up. We really enjoy that song also. It’s a double guitar lead song also, so it really should be exciting live. full interview


Hi Tony, before we get into the details of your equipment and technique, can you give Guitar Jar readers an insight to why you first picked up the guitar and how long you’ve been playing?
I got into Guitar from hearing my brother play constantly and hearing how he could slur and bend the notes was something of great interest to me. After some time he gave me my first Guitar and a played it and played it for hours.
In the first few years in learning the instrument, which guitarist(s) were you influenced by the most and why?
Johnny Winter and Rick Derringer were really among my very favourites. And years later I was much into the playing of George Benson and Allan Holdsworth. full guitarjar interview

Echoes In Time

This is serious chillout business...

"Simply Wonderful! - This album is one of the best collections of ambient music I have ever listened to - and I have listened to a lot." - Barrucadu

"Awesome! - I was delighted by this album. The melodies are very beautiful and deep. - David Bluecame"

"Excellent Music! - Congratulations , your album is really beautiful and music so nice. The choice of sounds, the mix everything is really well done. The guitar parts are awesome. I take your album in my fav without hesitation ESGI :o)) Warmest regards from France - Patroux

"Great Composition" - This is so good and very well done. I will definitely recommend this album to my friends especially those who do music. - Raaboy"

"I Dig It! - Thanks for this bro, I've probably listened to it 10 or 20 times now. I especially like the first and last tracks--they've got an epic feel to 'em. - Growthmetal"

Essentially a concept album comprising twelve tracks of varying pace and feel. Written over the space of a few months in 2007 initially for a sound track, the project developed into this album. Now re-edited and remastered, 'Echoes In Time' is intended as a chilled out escape and something to drift away to.


From the rhythmic pulse and guitar of 'With No Beginning', the Eastern orchestral chants of 'Dawn Of Mind', the smooth melancholy of 'Alone Again' and the filmic feel of 'Destiny', Echoes In Time seeks to explore the world of fantasy, film and emotion.

'I Wonder' with its Close Encounters influence proves this in point and 'A Paradise Lost', which takes us back to primordial lands after a Great Extinction and its rebirth in 'A New World'.

The title track drifts between here and then, slightly disconnected from the rest of album, while 'Of Wars And Power' explodes with violence and fury.

'The Drifter' captures the relief of surviving absolute terror. (Ripley in the escape pod at the conclusion of seminal classic 'Alien').

'In Your Heart' is a more contemporary, guitar solo based track and 'There Is No End' completes the journey with a strings and breakbeat style affair.


I hope you enjoy the album!

Matt Dawson: speed picking demo

Matt Dawson:
Australia's Fastest Guitarist. This is just a speed demonstration NOT ACTUAL MUSIC, Speed is just a small part of guitar playing not a substitute for music. That said...I'm Playing with only slight distortion, no reverb no delay or ANY effects. I'm shifting strings to make it even harder not just playing on one string, This is as fast as i can play ACCURATELY at the moment. slow it down, check the accuracy, do whatever you want, count the notes, its all there. I start at 16.5 Nps (Michael Angelo Batio's Top speed) And continue to 18 Nps, faster then any australia i have seen play ever. So enjoy, and please respond with a video if you think your faster, would love a challenge!

Australia's Fastest Guitarist!!
