Prashant Aswani: Rich Murray gets the inside track on the new album

Rich Murray gets the inside track on the new album over at Guitar Channel:
RM: Many pieces on the album include multiple guitar parts layered in the background; some of which are very subtle. “11 Miles” is a good example. Talk me through how you go about writing a piece like that, and where those extra background parts come into play when you’re putting the song together.

PA: Speaking specifically with "11 Miles" - I'll have a song, and I'll have a main idea. Sometimes it will be busier initially when I write it so I'll try to simplify it as much as possible. And then I like to layer melodies on top of each other. So where I have space, I'll have a different tone from a different guitar playing a melody. It almost becomes like melody overload, with different tones and in different spots where there's space. I like to keep space, but I also like to take advantage of it to throw in something that's going to either hit the rhythm - like hit a drum or a kick - or a tabla part, in a way where it's going to accentuate that. So everything connects to something. All the guitar parts that are there, they all connect to something - whether it be the bass or the drums, or the tablas, or the hi-hat or the kick, I'll always connect it to a pattern and develop a melodic structure from there. And tones are very important - I can't use the same tone everywhere otherwise when the time comes to mix it's all going to be a muddy mess. So I've got to be real selective with how I get my tones. read the full interview

News: Guitar Interactive - free new digital Magazine

Licklibrary are proud to announce the launch of Guitar Interactive - the world’s first truly interactive magazine for guitarists worldwide. This new digital magazine is free of charge and takes guitar magazine publishing to a new level with the use of video content provided by the world’s premier on-line guitar tuition providers, Licklibrary.

There’s no substitute for having someone demonstrate a product or guitar lick. No matter how well written an article is, the saying 'a picture is worth a thousand words' holds true and with the use of video footage we could add 'and a moving picture is worth ten thousand'!

The magazine is edited by the highly respected, award winning and experienced music industry journalist Gary Cooper. Issue one features an extensive overview of one of the world's most popular guitarists - Pink Floyd's David Gilmour by Jamie Humphries, as well as an in-depth look at Keith Richards, a history of the Fender Telecaster and an extensive gear review section. The features are brought to life with the use of Lick Library’s professional guitar tuition footage using top teachers.

Issue one has over 120 pages and features almost five hours of free video content, which includes an in-depth interview with Guthrie Govan and fourteen guitar lessons bringing the magazine to life in a truly interactive way. These include learning Prog Rock licks, playing in the style of Dave Gilmour and a range of guitar techniques to help improve your playing. The gear reviews will enable readers to see and get a real sense of the products being discussed with a video demonstration showing the range of options and possibilities on how to use them!

Unlike paper magazines the new digital magazine offers you the opportunity to immediately investigate further technical specs, see alternative views of the products, check advertiser’s websites, email pages to friends or share content via social network sites. The interactive possibilities are endless and will provide a totally new experience for readers wanting to find out more about guitars and guitarists.

Guitar Interactive is available free from, no strings attached!

Rich Kern: From Then Till Now

I just found Rich Kern out in facebook land. Rich was one of my favourite players from the late 1980's to early 1990's. one of his compositions made it onto Sharpnel records release "Ominous Guitarists From the Unknown". I have a number of demos from that era and the one outstanding aspect to Rich Kerns work was the compositional facility.
