Ola Englund, Fred Brum: Strictly 7 Guitars Solar7,Jaden Rose Spider #3 - post 28998

My good friend Ola asked me to record a lead on one of his tracks. Needless to say, I said "send it over, dude!" and the rest is history! :)
This is a still unreleased song from Feared called Vintersol, and here's Ola's video edit of the whole thing, yours truly included. Check out Ola Englund's righteous metal playing and glorious amp demos at:
There are some amazing production tips and patches on his site as well, and I can't recommend them highly enough!

For this vid, here are both signal chains:

Máté Kovács: dream tapping

Máté Kovács:
I couldn't sleep last night so I started to play guitar and had this idea at 3.00 am. I kinda liked it so I recorded it in the morning. Nothing serious, just one take, sorry for the mistakes :)

Allan Holdsworth: new material details... sign up!

Allan Holdsworth‎(via Nardini)==>> please sign for the MoonJune records' newsletter, next week two catalog reissues of AH will be announced on the label's website and with the direct link on Allan's website. NONE TOO SOON and HARD HAT AREA, for the first time re-mastered, will be available by the end of February. ... the long awaited new album, it will come later this year, hopefully...

Leonardo Pavkovic and MoonJune Records are pleased to announce the highly-anticipated and long-awaited return of guitar legend Allan Holdsworth. Commencing in January, Allan will begin the American leg of his world tour starting in California. He will be supported by jazz legend Jimmy Haslip (Yellowjackets; Holdsworth / Pasqua / Haslip / Wackerman Band) on bass and the incredible Virgil Donati (Planet X; CAB) on drums.
The itinerary is being draw out by MoonJune Bookings & Management. At present, the tour will encompass 12 states (as well as a visit to his Canadian fans in Toronto) before heading overseas to a multitude of European destinations. Stayed abreast of scheduling and updates at MoonJune Records' Facebook page and at our Mad Mimi page.
Unquestionably one of the most innovative and influential guitarists of the electric era, the tour marks the next phase of a remarkable journey and storied career. To commemmorate the incomparable Mr. Holdsworth's return to center stage, MoonJune Records will be re-releasing several of Allan's classic albums, as well as sponsoring and producting two brand new releases over the upcoming year.
Opening for Holdworth's trio for part of the American leg of the tour will be MoonJune Records own Marbin.
Negotiations are still in progress to extend the tour well beyond the bounds of Europe, with a number of major countries around the globe being considered. Further details and additional bookings will be posted at the previously-mention Mad Mimi page as they take shape. Be sure and help get the word out, and be in attendance and show your support for one of progressive music's all-time greatest treasures.
You can also keep up with Allan through his website:

Jess Lewis, Alex Hutchings: Room 335 - 10 star performance

Available as a free download from the 9th Feb 2012!! Watch this space!
The uber talented Jess lewis strikes again with another astounding rendition of a classic guitar tune. This time it's Larry Carlton's epic 'Room 335' and includes special guest Alex Hutchings filling in with an amazing improvisation over the keyboard solo from the original track.
This 17 year old Guitar Vixen wrestles this charming yet complex tune to the ground and then shakes the dust off and adds her own polish.

Oh and if you think Jess is up there with the female greats (and male of course!), please say so. We think she is! SPREAD THE WORD.
Come and see us at...

Neal Nagaoka: Noodling In D Minor - red hot rock fusion

Almost burned my fingers on this red hot playing from Neal Nagaoka

This is a collage of videos I made with my new Sony HD Bloggie Camera. I'm basically improvising over D minor 7 chord in Band In A Box. A few weird notes in there but since this was only a test video. I was going for a more "outside sounding" feel.
