Dhalif Ali: Stratocaster From A ToolBox

Dhalif Ali:
Today i revisited some of the boxes laying around filled with guitar parts around my place, and i picked out enough parts to build this guitar! lol it sounds like a monster! Resonate very well with plenty of sustain. I think everything came from China even the pickups.. it has a 2 piece alder body, and full maple neck, but the neck has been fully scalloped all the way through it took abit of time for me to readjust.. ! But im glad! enjoy and dont forget to subscribe!

4. 法國重金屬搖滾吉他手 Inophis【2010上海國際樂器展覽會】

All over the world

Inophis is a French guitar player with a growing fan-base in China. A true hero in a country where the guitar culture has been developing, this eclectic musician takes in influences from a great many various styles — rock, metal, classical, jazz, funk, or even Celtic music. Whether he plays with the band Merzhin (as in the Bobital festival, touring Rumania or Spain) or playing solo, he always enjoys feeding his music with his traveling.

Born in French Brittany, Inophis is currently taking his China Tour to the big cities to play his album Beauty in the Chaos and support his signature instruments designed by the brand Farida. He remains very attached to Brittany, his native land, and he travels back and forth between Shanghai and Brest so he can teach the guitar there.

His proj
ects include, he tells us, the release of a guitar-playing handbook, toward the end of 2012. We shall make sure to tell you more as soon as we get more information about it.

The score

No School (free download)

No School, a song written in D, moves from catchy melodies to virtuoso technical passages. The main themeresorts to slides and bends to give more cachet to a simple melody, and it leads you to work new assets of your guitar.

Precision and timing will be your true allies as you play this part. Beware of the series of slides on measure 20, and of the proper timing for the bends/releases of measure 22.
