Gary Moore: full Live CD and DVD details


Eagle Rock Entertainment will release, on September 20, the very last live performance in the life of acclaimed guitarist/singer/songwriter Gary Moore. Live At Montreux 2010 strikingly shows a major return-to-rock for the musician who spent years exploring the blues. In fact, in the last days of his life, Moore, who died on February 6 of this year, was working on a new rock album

What makes this release so compelling is the inclusion of three never-before-released gems, “Days Of Heroes,” “Where Are You Now” and “Oh Wild One,” that he previewed for the Montreux audience and had fully intended to put on the album he was writing and recording at the time. The rest of the set is heavy on the 1980s rock he pioneered solo, as well as his late 60s/70s work with Phil Lynott in Thin Lizzy and Skid Row. And, of course, some blues.

Gary Moore was born in 1952 Belfast, Ireland. Heavily influenced by Fleetwood Mac’s Peter Green, he joined Skid Row (not to be confused with the American band of the same name) as a teenaged phenomenon in 1969 for three albums before going solo, joining Thin Lizzy, and going solo again. His hit single “Parisienne Walkways” catapulted him into the hearts and minds of discerning music lovers around the globe and subsequent forays into Celtic (Wild Frontier, 1987) and blues (Still Got The Blues, 1990) preceded an album with Ginger Baker and Jack Bruce (BBM, 1994). Much more blues would follow, most notably Power Of The Blues in 2004. Through it all, he maintained the highest level of musicianship and became revered for his constant searching and the redefining of his own artistry.

Track Listing:
1) Over The Hills And Far Away
2) Military Man
3) Days Of Heroes
4) Where Are You Now?
5) So Far Away/Empty Rooms

The new CD from the Austrian Guitarist Peter Greier, guitar music not just for guitarists and brilliant composition spiced with excellent playing. Between rocking fusion and catchy tunes and some jazzflavour now and then. Ffeaturing Alex Machacek playing a Solo on "Hendi" and the Austrian Popidol winner Michi Tschuggnall. More info

Austrian born guitarist Peter Greier started his musical journey at the age of six singing in the church!
Learning trumpet at the age of thirteen he switched to guitar one year later. While the first years of playing were mainly self-taught, he studied guitar seriously at the Conservatory of Innsbruck/Austria and the Munich Guitar Institute (MGI) with additional lessons by some of the finest players on the planet (Steve McKenna, Frank Gambale, David Becker,).
In the 80s to the early 90s he played in the local rockband "Precious Stone", releasing the Cd "feel it tonight".
As a session player he was hired for various musicals like "rent", "jesus christ superstar", "little shop of horrors", "Hair", "Grease" and several bands from rock to funk to fusion. Since 2003 he is in the band of Austrian's Pop Idol winner Michael Tschuggnall.
Although since the very beginning of his musical carrier he was writing songs, it took many years to come to bring out his first solo release "eat this!" in 2009, featuring some of Austria's finest musicans like Christian Wegscheider, Willi Langer and Alex Machacek. By merging all the different influences and styles he grew up playing and listening to, "eat this!" seems to cause quite an international stir not only to the worldwide guitar community. buy

Andreas Oberg,Frank Vignola: Crazy Gypsy Jazz Guitar Lessons



Swedish guitar phenom Andreas Oberg has performed with and earned the accolades of such guitar luminaries as Les Paul, Toots Thielemans, Bireli Lagrene, Larry Coryell and Frank Vignola. Along with regular TV and radio appearances, Andreas is often featured in international guitar publications.

His partner in crime, Frank Vignola, is a recognized master of a wide range of styles from jazz to bluegrass. Illustrating this depth, Frank has worked with legends such as Donald Fagen, David Grisman and -- like Andreas -- Les Paul. A Long Island boy, Frank is far from being a jazz snob and has graced the stages of everyone from Madonna to Ringo Starr.

In Gypsy Duo, Frank and Andreas will teach you the many different techniques used within Gypsy jazz music such as picking, rhythmic patterns and harmonic ideas in a duet format. They also call upon their years of experience in jazz and bebop styles to infuse new ideas into the style, such as sweep picking, working from different tonal centers, new fingering approaches and fresh rhythmic ideas.

Petr Henych: gitarvilag G-BOD interview

I just got Petr Henych's CD and really enjoyed it... here's a recent interview with Petr Henych about his G-BOD project

Hello Petr! First of all congratulations for your last work "Pleasure Trip". Here we are to talk about it, but, first, could you, please, introduce yourself to all the readers?

Ok, so I am a Czech guitar player, composer and leader of rock-instrumental group named G-BOD. I am also guitar player in group named Leaders, which is basically band of one of the best singers of Czech republic - Kamil Strihavka. He is the most famous performer of Jesus in Czech version of rock opera Jesus Christ Superstar.

And now let's introduce your bandmates too! How about the name 'G-BOD'?

G-BOD band is a rock trio. There is Jakub Homola on drums and Martin Hronek on bass. Name G-BOD is G-Spot in Czech language. But it doesn´t exactly mean g-spot. I don't know if it is clear and understandable, but is simply my G(uitar)-point(very important thing of my life)

Petr Henych & G-Bod - New CD "Pleasure trip"

Petr Henych/G-BOD - Pleasure Trip (CD)
Petr Henych - a rock guitar player from the Czech Republic - first appeared in the public's eye in the year 1992 with the band John Dovanni. Through the years, Petr has been playing and composing alongside some of the biggest personalities in the Czech musical scene (Ladislav Kninek an Kreyson, Vilem nok, Bara Basikova and Precedems, Pancho and Petr Kolan. In the year 2007, Henych composed, recorded and released his first instrumental album "Na Vlastnich Rukou", and shortly after founded his own band - featuring bass player Martin Hronek and drummer Jakub Homola. The trio has been named G-BOD and is performing compositions from the "Na Vlastnich Rukou" CD, as well as a couple of cover tunes from the likes of Jimi Hendrix and Joe Satriani. 2010 brings the latest band release with 12 all-instrumental rock tracks, Pleasure Trip, several years in the making - and well worth the wait!

Cissie Goumare: Master of Puppets

Cissie Goumare:
Hello, my name is Cissie, better known as Cizzie on youtube. I picked up a guitar for the first time at the age of 14, that's nearly 5 years ago now. Around that age I started to love rock music. I wanted to understand how they could make these great sounds with just a guitar and wanted to learn how to do so myself. I took lessons for 2 years in the local musicschool and have had 2 other teachers since. interview
