Allan Holdsworth: describes the Gonan DeLap Baritone guitar

A Conversation with Allan Holdsworth (#80) 2005-10-05 Bill Milkowski

Allan Holdsworth - DeLap 36 inch Baritone in Japan

BM: Well, you've gone through so many instruments through the years. Do you still have your long neck baritone guitars?

AH: No, those are gone. Although Bill DeLap, the guy who built those baritone guitars for me, has made me another baritone guitar with a 34 inch scale that goes down to a C. The other baritone guitar I had, which I named Boris, was 36 inches and went down to B flat. And then I also had Gonan, which was the biggest one of all -- it was 38 inches long and went down to an A. And he made me a piccolo guitar too that was tuned up to a high A. I was trying to get a guitar orchestra going.

BM: But the one that you played last night was...

AH: Just a regular DeLap. You know, I designed a couple of guitars with Carvin and was on the road with those for a number of years, and I always had a few custom made headless guitars too. I was really fond of headless guitars. It's such a struggle for me to jump and forth from a headless guitar to a regular guitar. If you get used to playing a (headless) Steinberger, it's really hard to go back to a headstock. I can't really describe it, it just feels awkward. more

Now what happened to the Concrete Balloon record label?

[DeLap Baritone Guitar; single-string baritone guitar 31f6. B♭tuning range in the B♭1-F6. Allan Holdsworth (Allan Holdsworth) Bill Dirappu goods orders (Bill Delap) production, was owned by private collectors now.
Chord length 36inch (= 914.4mm). Bubinga neck on the body is alder wood. Duncan made of PU isPAF. It's made of nuts and Steinberger bridge. That can hear this guitar ※ CD Allan Holdsworth] [WARDENCLYFFE TOWER "Sphere of Innocence"solo

Michael Baugh: free backing track from jam track central

More from our talented friend, guitarist and teacher Michael Baugh. Mike is adding Eddie Van Halen's solo to Michael Jackson's 'Beat It' to our new FREE series on our site... Classic Solos. Each FREE package contains a high-quality video of Mike playing a classic guitar solo, along with a backing track and some explanatory notes and tips.

There is unfortunately no Tab, but that's because we wanted to give you these solos for FREE! The licensing to use the Tab would have made them quite expensive, and it is of course possible to find the Tab elsewhere.

Other FREEBIES available are Joe Satriani's 'Love Thing', Paul Kossof's 'All Right Now' and Brian May's 'Killer Queen', so click below and grab them now!

Jason Sadites: preorder behind the laughter with Marco Minneman

Jason Sadites (Guitar and Everything else); Marco Minnemann (Drums)

Marco Minnemann came up with the concept of the Normalizer 2 series of music releases. Simply put, Marco played an uninterrupted 51 minute drum solo and handed it out to a variety of musicians to compose their own music over top of. The only catch is that nobody could listen to anybody else's project before completing their own. Other musicians who participated with their own releases are John Czajkowski, Mike Keneally, Phi Yaan-Zak, Alex Machacek, Trey Gunn, Mario Brinkmann and Marco himself.

Behind The Laughter is Jason Sadites' contribution to the series. For fans of music by artist's as diverse as Zappa, Return To Forever, Rush, Satriani, Vai etc. this is a release they don't want to miss. From front to end it is a roller coaster ride of incredible compositions and amazing performances by Jason and Marco. Catchy melodies intertwined with dizzying guitar playing over ever changing odd-time grooves make for a fusion fans dream.
