It is very difficult to put into a few words what our experience at the Jason Becker Festival in Amsterdam was like but I will try. Roughly 3 months ago I was contacted by one of our columnists and traveling partner for this event, Mike Blackburn. In short, he wrote me saying “I am about to book my tickets for this. Would you consider going to cover the event?” I first thought about finances for that kind of trip, then being away from my family for a week then yelled "HOW CAN I NOT DO THIS!!!!!!!!!" so I replied “Yes” and booked my trip.

We landed in Amsterdam 3 days prior to the festival with the intention of just covering rehearsals and trying to interview as many of the players as possible but that first night the host was gracious enough to invite us to dinner with some of the early arrivals: Andy James, Stéphane Forté & Franck Hermanny of Adagio, Daniele Gottardo and Atma Anur. A great meal was enjoyed along with some fantastic conversation and later some Kodak moments.  more

Sarah Longfield: Azure Djent

This is one of the original songs I wrote. It's part of my demo "Zeal" you can checkout/download from :D I wrote the entire demo in a about 2 months while spending hours a day in attempt to improve my recording techniques and mixing skills. I know it's not perfect, that's why it's a demo:) Hope you like it! also, the video got kind of not lined up so I cut it in the middle and it's still sort of off, but now it's kind of close lol...

Azure (Original) - By Sarah

Not perfecto (DAMN THE MEEDLY MIDDLE PART!) lol it is so much harder than it sounds, it's easy to play but damn near impossible to memorize!

But it's been a while since i've put a new video up:P and this is one of my all time favorite meshuggah songs :D I've been really busy working on my demo thing (which I don't have videos for yet, but soon!) if you want to check it out head to
