Alex Skolnick: BD interview

4) A question for our guitar lovers on the site: Some of the tones you achieve sound so natural, woody and warm. What guitars, amps and effects did you use for the recording process?

My main instruments are Heritage Guitars, built in the old Gibson plant in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Heritage guitars are a bit harder to acquire than most- you won't find them in Guitar Center or Sam Ash. But they're the only new guitars I'm aware of that give you the feeling of shopping in a great vintage guitar shop like Mandolin Bros in New York or Gruhn Guitars in Nashville. Mostly what you hear is a Heritage H575 archtop, similar to a Gibson 175. There is also my signature 'Alex Skolnick' model, which is like a Les Paul- it stands toe to toe with any classic Gibson Les Paul. There are also a couple of great acoustics on there, both made by Yamaha. One is an LJX steel string and the other is an NCX Nylon string.

For amps, I used my signature Budda, which is my main amp live. It's a compo amp with one speaker. For effects, I used a bit of delay, the Carbon-Copy, manufactured by Jim Dunlop. Live, I'm using loop pedals from Line 6 and Boss, but in the studio, we mimicked the loops on actual tracks, for the sake of sound quality. more

Rob Chappers: and the Stickman lose their hair for Japan!


Moved by the devastation facing people in parts of Japan following the recent earthquake and tsunami, Chappers (AKA The Monkey Lord) and Stick (Paul of Maplewood Studios) have decided to raise funds for ShelterBox, a wonderful registered charity which is headquartered in the UK and provides emergency shelter and lifesaving supplies for families affected by disasters.
Along with their musical abilities and winning personalities, Chappers and Stick have long flowing locks … but not for much longer. They have decided to have their hair cut off in return for donations to ShelterBox! Chappers and Stick intend to have their hair cut to at least grade 4, which means they will only be left with about an inch of hair covering their heads, at most.
To make this loss of hair worthwhile, Chappers and Stick are asking people to use this page to donate generously to ShelterBox. The hair cutting is expected to take place at the end of March and video evidence *will* be provided, but to encourage the lads in their fundraising endeavour and ensure donations are available to ShelterBox as quickly as possible, the lads would very much appreciate your help now. Once you have made your donation, please use the links on this page to share this page on facebook, twitter etc.
Every time this page accumulates a donation of £590, ShelterBox will be able to deliver emergency shelter and other lifesaving equipment to a family which has lost everything following a disaster. We have therefore set the target for this page to £2360, in the hope that people will be generous enough to donate for four whole boxes. If this page can raise even more, that would be amazing.
You can read all about ShelterBox on its website, but essentially, each ShelterBox contains a disaster relief tent for up to ten people, blankets, water storage and purification equipment, cooking utensils, a stove, a basic tool kit, a children’s activity pack and other vital items. An amazing package that will truly help a family to survive, following a major disaster.
ShelterBox is already out in Japan, providing disaster relief. In order to respond to disasters at the earliest opportunity, the charity must ensure it has Boxes assembled and ready to be despatched to affected areas as quickly as possible. Therefore the charity has already begun despatching ShelterBoxes to Japan. All donations made via this page will be received by ShelterBox to provide relief for families facing disaster, though we are unable, due to the emergency nature of the charity’s work, to dictate where the Boxes will be sent. We know, whatever the destination, that any ShelterBox sent will make a huge difference to the family it is given to, while they are facing such devastation.
We thank you all, in advance, for your generosity :-)
Thanks for taking the time to visit our JustGiving page.
Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - we raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charit

Cristian Regnicoli: Jagged Bitter Laugh new CD

Jagged Bitter Laugh, the first solo album from Italian guitarist Cristian Regnicoli, offers a unique musical experience between a rock sound and acoustic/ethnic atmospheres. As Regnicoli explains, "The concept of this album arose in 2006, when i found by chance, in the hard disk of an old multitrack recorder, many ideas jotted down during more or less creative phases. Developing those "drafts", this work came out almost instinctively, and it features sounds and atmospheres i've been fond of through the years. For this reason, Jagged Bitter Laugh is an album containing many different stories - it represents a life experience, made out of the passions of my youth, along with personal and professional meetings that influenced my growth. It is absolutely not an arrival, but an opening into what I see just as the beginning of a long journey."
