Derryl Gabel: Fretboard Intensive Training

Fretboard Intensive Training DVDs

Over the years of teaching I've found that many students struggle with visualizing scale patterns. In this two and a half hour dual DVD set I cover exercises that I have developed that will help you to see the entire scale matrix in your minds eye or as you look at the fretboard. This will enable you to create patterns that you might not normally play and traverse the fretboard in any direction with virtually no boundaries. If you learn a new pattern you will be able to see the diatonic development superimposed on the scale matrix. This is useful not only in improvisation but composition as well. I also cover common yet essential tools every guitarist should use such as string dampening, motion efficiency, and proper angles for achieving a greater reach. In addition to this I will show you exercises that will help you develop finger independence, speed, accuracy, and endurance. Most examples include large, on screen neck diagrams to make it super easy to follow along.

Chapters include...
  • Introduction
  • Guitar Setup
  • Placement and Angles
  • String Dampening
  • Isometrics
  • Motion Efficiency
  • Speed Picking
  • Note Recognition
  • The Major Scale
  • Modes
  • Modal Octave Linking
  • Three Notes Per String
  • Scale Pattern Numonics
  • Shifting
  • Twelve Key Study
  • Rolling Exercises
  • Sequencing
  • Vertical Rolling Shifts
  • Zigzag Rolling Shifts
  • Diagonal Rolling Shifts
  • Diagonal Rolling Shifts 2

Kosta Vreto: Wardrum in the studio

Wardrum - In The Studio, New Album In 2012
Greek Prog-Power metallers Wardrum are currently at Infinity Studio in Thessaloniki, Greece, to record their second studio album, the follow up to “Spadework”, released on the 25th of April 2011.

The band has finished with the drums (Stergios Kourou) and guitars (Kosta Vreto), Kostas Scandalis is now recording the bass, while Piero Leporale is programmed to finish with the vocals by the end of January 2012. The new album follows the sound paths of their debut “Spadework”, but in a more powerful way, with strong songs, lyrical choruses, melodic guitar solos, and technical rhythm section.

The band will release their new album through Steel Gallery Records in 2012.
