Lyle Watt,Mark McGuigan: Simian Jock Rock's the MonkeyFest 2011

Here's what happened when Scotland invaded MonkeyFest! This was great fun - fueled by a few ''beverages'' of course...

Thanks to Kate McGuigan for filming this, Thanks to Mark for the epic jam, and thanks to the amazing rhythm section - Dave Hollingworh on bass, and Paul ''Stick'' Annis on drums!

Apologies for the sound - my attempts to clear up the audio a wee bit left it severely lopsided...

Recently a member asked for a transcription of one of my improv vids. Rather then transcribe some non-useful phrases, I thought an explanation of how to build melodic concepts would be of use. I'll be doing more of these hopefully soon

Jonas Tamas, Andy James: Andy shreds for upcoming instrumental guitar album

From Drop Box

Andy James plays an awesome guest solo on Jonas Tamas' upcoming instrumental guitar album 'Timeless Hour'
English guitar virtuoso Andy James plays a stunning guest guitar solo for the song Borderline, one of the new songs on Jonas Tamas' upcoming instrumental guitar album Timeless Hour. Despite of his full schedule of writing music, releasing his new album, touring with his band Sacred Mother Tongue, and making new guitar tutorial DVDs as well as a series of guitar books, Andy was kind enough to find the time and record a fantastic guitar solo for one of the heaviest songs on the second album of Jonas Tamas. The solo is over an E-locrian riff, and features Andy's trademark high precision alternate picking, great melodies, culminating in some top-speed diminished runs and string-skipped guitar frenzy.

Guitarist Andy James has a full endorsement with ESP Guitars and Blackstar Amplification and is widely regarded as the best breakthrough guitarist in the UK with a developed fan base of his own. He has released three solo albums called Machine, In the Wake of Chaos and the self-titled Andy James. He has also taught guitarists around the world through his successful range of tuition DVDs with LickLibrary.

The upcoming second instrumental guitar album of Jonas Tamas will feature international stars as guest players, including Mattias IA Eklundh (Freak Kitchen), Brett Garsed (Planet X, etc.), Marcel Coenen (Sun Caged), Thorsten Koehne (Eden's Curse), singer Mischa Mang (Ivanhoe, ex-Dreamscape), and the new keyboard wizard Sergey Boykov (Shadow Cry).

The new album of Andy James is available on iTunes, and it can be ordered as an autographed CD version as well. Check out his official homepage for all the details: more
