Jennifer Batten: ZC3 Michael Jackson and clinician demos

Ziua Chitarelor was my first chance to see Jennifer Batton live. In this special video Jennifer Batton made special tribute to Michael Jackson, playing a compilation of the solos from Michael's songs in Jennifer's own unique style. The crowd were highly enthusiastic and deeply appreciative of this gesture. The video does not include the onscreen back projections produced by Jennifer to go along with the show... for that you'll need to go along to one of her shows.

I think I would describe Jennifer as a guitar artist, painting with music and media. Her two handed approach along with chain of effects enables her to conjure up swathes of colour and texture, emotion and grace. I would certainly recommend checking out Jennifer's live show, particularly with the media back projections.

Bill Ruppert: Electro-Harmonix Effectology, Vol.18 World Sounds

Bill Ruppert:
I am writing to tell you of a new Effectology video I thought your viewers would enjoy. This is the video series I do for Electro-Harmonix on how to produce "impossible" sounds using just a regular guitar and EHX effect pedals. No synthesizers are used! Electro-Harmonix Effectology, Vol.18 World Sounds. In this episode I explore exotic sounds of the world using a guitar and effect pedals. Didgeridoo drones, tabla drums, electric sitars and more! I show the individual pedal settings at the EHX forum listed below.

Allan Holdsworth: trio and tribute

Allan Holdsworth Trio

Allan Holdsworth (FRED) at the Iridium NYC 9-19-10

plus this tribute to Allan Holdsworth

My keyboard rendition of Allan's solo from Joint Ventures, off of the Heavy Machinery album by Jens and Anders Johansson. I always liked Allan's (and Jens' of course =) playing on this album.

Some of the faster bits are a bit sketchy, since they were so... fast. Anyway - it was interesting to try and transfer his guitar lines to the keyboard. Some of the things work better than others...

Thiago Trinsi: Shredknowledge interview

Thiago Trinsi
I still need to think about my CD,I was working on it around April when I came back from the Festival in Romania (ZIUA II )I got so many ideas to develop after this Fantastic Experience to be playing there for those people and being around Artists like Brett Garsed, Andy Timmons, Greg Howe, Michael Angelo Batio, Willian Stravato, Richard Hallebeek.

Its very fun when I can re-open my files and listen to my records, but I had to take a break from this project now I recently finished my Orchestration Course and I have been working and experimenting a lot since then, I really need more time to digest all the Material and the result of my experimental ideas, its a lot of information and the music in my head is playing a little different now I think it's better to get some time now than to finish my records soon for the CD and regret after all. more
