Dweezil Zappa: guitar international interview

Dweezil Zappa: Yeah. The thing about the gear is that Frank had a different perspective on how to use equipment than a lot of other guitar players. He had electronics built into his guitars that allowed him to equalize his guitar over the arrangement of the band. Basically, he had parametric equalizers in his guitars, and in most cases there were two of them in each.

You could choose the frequencies you wanted for clarity, and you could also choose frequencies to add more gain for smooth sustain, like what you hear on Zoot Allures when he hits a chord. It goes into that nice feedback. He was using recording equipment technology within his guitars.

He was used to working in a studio, mixing, and doing these things, so he incorporated that into his guitars. Very high class, hi-fi audio concepts were incorporated into his sound. He wasn’t using high gain amplifiers in the way that other people were; he actually had more gain from his guitar and would use the power amp section from his amps. There was more headroom and more dynamics, because the actual output from his guitar was 18db louder than a normal guitarmore

Damir Simic: guitar international interview

Simic was featured in DiMarzio’s ads even though he was an unknown, and the company’s been behind him ever since. “Larry DiMarzio and Steve Blucher have been extremely supportive,” Simic says. “Larry placed several ads with me, which I’m really proud of, because he put me neck to neck with all my heroes like Yngwie and Satriani. And I’m still not that famous of a guitar player in those terms, but the DiMarzio guys have been behind me.”

Things were moving along just fine for Simic until Nirvana hit the next year. “Everything appeared to be phenomenal right from the get go,” Simic recalls. “The problem is about a few months later Kurt Cobain came on the scene. We didn’t really see it coming, but he single-handedly kind of like removed guitar soloing from the mainstream. All throughout the ‘90’s, soloing didn’t exist. Soloing just recently started creeping back in. The past three, four years I’m seeing this movement where all these young bands are coming along. They’re starting to shred, and it’s becoming more popular again. more

Milan Polak: the scary side of live playing in this excellent shred knowledge interview.

Milan Polak: shred knowledge interview
13 whilst on stage I split my trousers right down the leg and played side on for the set, whats the wors thing ever happened to you live ,?

Well, that would be something that happened on my last tour. I was in Italy. It was a cold month, snow and fog and that particular day the weather was especially bad. You know, one of those days where you just want to stay home. Also, it was during the week (I think Thursday) and not even 100 people showed up for the gig. The drummer started almost every song too fast (normally he played with a metronome, not sure what happened that night) and it was really hard to play and sing a lot of the songs.
We were getting close to the end of the gig and I announced the next song. I was waiting for the count in... nothing... waiting... nothing... I turned around just to find that the drummer wasn't behind his drum set anymore. It later turned out he had gone to the toilet to take a s..t!!! Right in the middle of the concert!
So there I was on stage not knowing what was going on. Since he didn't seem to show up again I started playing some sort of unaccompanied blues waiting for him to return. It was the worst moment on stage of my life. full interview

Lalle Larsson: Fusion keyboard player of the year

There is also a new CD out.

Larsson, Lalle - Infinity of Worlds 2 x CDs (very limited/already sold out 2 CD version - 1 per customer please)

SKU 19-Reingold 1005
Lalle Larsson is a great keyboard player who I first heard of in the technical fusion groups Electrocution 250 and Ominox. He is probably best known for his work with Karmakanic. This is the second album by his Weaveworld band, who toured with the Agents of Mercy/Karmakanic show in 2009. This is a interesting and excellent band that straddles a line between progressive rock and fusion although I think it lands closer to the progressive rock side of things. Lalle's chops will stun; it's as simple as that, and everyone else is really good as well. The bonus disc (available only in the 1st 500 copies) is a piece for chamber orchestra and *heavy* instrumental technical metal embodied here in both studio and live versions.  Buy
