Frank Gambale: loves India

Frank Gambale loves India.India loves Frank Gambale.

15 years back, my friends and I would park our cars by the side of the road and boast of our newest musical acquisitions. One such acquisition was Frank Gambale's 'Live At The Baked Potato' CD. We never thought a day would come when we would see this shredmaster, sweepmaster, guitar virtuoso in our backyard! Frank has already come to India 3 times now, in the years 2006, 2007 and 2010, and watching him isn't enough. Frank got engaged to his lovely wife Bocarossa in Agra, and I got to be one of the fortunate ones to witness this solemn ceremony. I even had him stay at my house! Can you imagine having one of your favourite guitar players stay at your house?! Wow!!!! Here is a teaser of some of the moments documented during those 3 trips. This one is for all the Frank Gambale fans and music lovers. During that trip, Frank and I recorded a lot of music which resulted in Frank playing on 3 songs from my forthcoming record 'Matters Of The Heart', which has a lineup like this :
Dave Grusin ,Lee Ritenour,Tom Schuman ,Ricardo Silveira,Patrice Rushen,Frank Gambale,Dave Valentin,Virgil Donati,Bunny Brunel,Russel Ferrante,William Kennedy,Melvin Davis,Jimmy Haslip.Mitch Forman,Dave Weckl,Eric Marienthal,Jimmy Johnson,Ric Fierbracci,Brian Bromberg,Brett Garsed,Walt Fowler,Jeff Richman,Phil Turcio,Craig Anderson,Gerry Pantazis,Pt Vishwamohan Bhatt,Jay Beckenstein,Chuck Loeb,Scott Henderson,Gary Novak,Anthony Jackson,Dori Caymmi..Kirk Covington,Steve Tavaglione,Gary Willis, Scott Kinsey, Otmaro Ruiz,Miriam Stockley,Scott Ambush, Simon Phillips,Brandon Fields ,Jurim Moreira , Jorge Helder, Deepak Pandit,Naveen Kumar,Sonu Kakkar,Tony Das,Tyrone Fernandes,Floyd Fernandes,Paul Tavenner and M.R.Sunny

Ron Thal: GN R play $1m private show!

GUNS N' ROSES was reportedly paid one million U.S. dollars to play a private show Friday night (October 29) in Moscow for Alexander Chistyakov, the deputy chairman of the management board of Federal Grid Company (FGC). The concert took place at a studio at Mosfilm (a Russian movie company), with GN'R singer Axl Rose arriving at the location at 2 a.m. (early Saturday morning). Guards were reportedly notified of his arrival 40 minutes before he showed up. They were asked to arrange "a green corridor" so all celebrities were asked to leave the VIP area and proceed to the general-admission area. To attend the concert, each invited guest had to pay about $1,000. more

Lai Youttitham: Moonlight Sonata

Moonlight Sonata on guitar

Hi guys, Hope you guys are having a fun Halloween.
As requested: moonlight Sonata.
Add comments as a request of what you want to hear this Christmas.

The Hardest part of learning this song was try not to fall asleep, not that it's boring, Beethoven was just that good, this is one of my favorite classical songs, my take is not 100% the same as the original, some part I double speed them notes and even add some extra notes to them just to fill some gap after double the speed on some part.

The hair is not mine lol! that's my Halloween costume.
