Luke Fortini: 400 BPM picking to the max!

I always wonder when your done with the speed aspect of learning to pick like this, does the ability to play at that speed help you play cleaner at slower speeds?

Barchessa Giustinian Morosini-Mirano (VE)
"Ecology of beauty ... listening to Zappa"
Ferdinando Boero in collaboration with Marcello Zappatore
Ferdinando Boero presents his book "Ecology of Beauty" and talks about the beauty of nature, as distinct from mediation art that represents it. From here, along with guitarist Marcello Zappatore, will be spent in exploring the "beauty" of the music of one of the greatest composers of the last century: Frank Zappa. Play Zappatore of his works and he will explain, running them, what are the secrets of their beauty. Citing Zappa (which in turn set off by a quote by Einstein, extending it): "Information is not knowledge. Knowledge is not wisdom. Wisdom is not truth. Truth is not beauty. Beauty is not love. Love is not music. Music is THE BEST! "
Zappa and jazz: "Jazz is not dead, but gives off a strange smell ..."

Thomas Bressel: Virtual Tragedies new CD and DVD

Since the first album "Influences of Time," produced by Youri De Groote, which at that time (2003-2006) had been done with the resources at hand, then "The land of chaos" (2008) who had benefited from better production, here the new album "Virtual Tragedies," which will thus complete the trilogy!

New sound, with Charlie Ledoyen on drums and a Vigier Excalibur 7 strings everywhere, and especially a production staged at the Studio of Souleuvre (William Dousseau).
A story told in 45 minutes through 6 guitar pieces whose writing was completed in summer 2009. Riffs even heavier ... climates even worse ... many melodic passages ... but also shred shred more than the previous albums!
A delicate balance that never falls into the free demo ... a project more successful than previous ones.
But ... the release of the album is impossible to date because of the expensive investments that were required in order to deliver a production worthy of the name.
A solution therefore exists, which will allow the album to see the day end of June, the worst start in July (an official date will be announced later).
The "Virtual Pack! This pack contains the album "Virtual Tragedies" Obviously, a plectrum pick of chaos ", but also and above all, a DVD" Visual Tragedies "in which Thomas's Bressel Xperience performs several songs from 3 albums. This DVD filmed by the team of TV production "(in HD with 4 cameras), will be limited to 100 copies.
And all for only 15 € * (including postage) then go to the shop on!
* Offer only open to residents in France... Note there is another price for other European countries

News:Aristides Instruments Designer reveals “Arium”

Meet Aristides Poort. The Dutch Civil Engineer responsible for taking the guitar world by storm with the Design of the OIO guitar, and the development of Arium.

Mr. Poort has been hard at work for decades immersed in guitar design for those of you who are hearing his name for the first time. Mr Poort is the man responsible for “Catalyst Guitars” a ceramic guitar line that raised some eyebrows and peeked the interest most notably of Vernon Reid.

Mr. Poort quickly realized that it would take more than ceramic guitars with a sales pitch of a “wood alternative guitar”. He would need a material with great resonance, sustain and lots of research. This was a 15-year journey of developing a material that would have perfect acoustic properties and he had the Technical University of Delft along the way.

Aristides has caught the attention of many guitar players including: Bert Meulendijk, Erik Rutjes, Ward Veenstra, Magnus Tveiten, and Legendary Whitesnake guitarist/composer Adrian Vandenberg.

Mr. Poort took some time to fill in the gaps for those who are still unsure of what arium is.

Aristides instruments reputation for great sustain, resonance and craftsmanship is growing as well as its dealer network. is proud to join the Aristides instruments family. more

Daniele Liverani, Tommy Ermoli,Alberto Rigoni: Twinspirits virtuosityone interview

Daniele, congratulations on the new Twinspirits album ‘Legacy’ it’s a fantastic piece of work.Twinspirits have been building rapidly since the debut ‘The Music That Will Heal The World’, with the excellent ‘The Forbidden City’ and now ‘Legacy’. You seem to be very inspired with this band, what is it about the band and music that you inspires you?

D: Thank you very much! Well, what can I say, Twinspirits has born in 2004 and the main concept behind this line up was to gather some very cool musicians I’ve been discovering during my musical path and working with for my past projects (Genius/Khymera etc..). Twinspirits is the most inspiring environment for me at the moment, because it continues the musical thread I started with the genius rock opera back in 1998/1999, and therefore it’s the situation that represent me the most in terms of songwriting and musical vision. Of course the talent and musicality of all bands members is a constant inspiration for me, when writing and producing, and they arrangements contributions to my songwriting is also very important and it really gives life to the songs.

Can you give our readers an overview of how the creative process for the album took place?

D: Basically I write the music and Lyrics and a pre-produce a rough version of the songs by myseld which becomes a sort of sketch for the songs, then I give it to the guys and they arrange their parts, write solos, give suggestions a songs structures and I take care of their feedback, of course trying to make a synthesis of all ideas without loosing the vibe and the direction of the original songwriting. Then we record each instruments, starting from Drums, then bass and guitars, then Keyboards and finally vocals and backing vocals. Then I mixed the album in my home studio. It took almost 2 months to mix this Legacy album, since I really wanted everything to sound acoustic and natural (no triggers or stuff), and I really did my best to take care of all details and give justice to the songs, I have to say that, so far, I’m very happy of the result. more
