Jason Becker: MacPro died... help :(


Kris ClaerhoutHey all!
We need your help. Jason Becker's MacPro died. Is there anyone here that like to help us out to get a new MacPro for Jason ?
I started collecting some money already among my own friends but we need more because those machines are the heavy ones with lots of processor capacity to edit and generate big music files. jason uses that machine for writing new songs and producing his new originals.
If you like to help out, get in contact by private message for details. Or if you have a MacPro that you'd like to donate or if you know some Apple management ;)

Kris Claerhout donation can go through paypal at org@jasonbeckerfest.com
we already have a couple of hundreds but we need more

Thanks all, please spread the word!

Keshav Dhar,Marty Friedman: Skyharbor pre order details


Starting out as a simple bedroom studio project, guitarist Keshav Dhar has seen SKYHARBOR quickly evolve into one of India’s hottest metal prospects, with huge admiration coming in from some of the biggest names in metal worldwide.



An astonishing amount of buzz also surrounded the bands first ever performance at the Bacardi NH7 Festival in Pune, India earlier this month, where they played to over 1,000 people and were one of the weekend’s highlights.

The long awaited debut album from SKYHARBOR promises to be a landmark release for the Indian independent music scene, in no small part thanks to the incredible number of international guest appearances it will see, including the likes of Marty Friedman (ex Megadeth), Daniel Tompkins (ex TesseracT), Vishal J. Singh (Amogh Symphony) and Sunneith Revankar (Bhayanak Maut).

SKYHARBOR will release the debut album ‘Blinding White Noise: Illusion & Chaos’ worldwide via BASICK in early 2012.

Masato Itoh: Final Fantasy "Prelude" 9 - cool two handed tapping

http://blog.livedoor.jp/masato_guitar/http://soundcloud.com/masatoitoh

I played this song using the DigiTech Whammy pedal for the arpeggiate/melody, and overdubbed the harmony parts with the E-Bow for (0:48~). I played with 9 finger style (4 with left hand and 5 with right) on the arpeggiate part. The way Reb Beach moves to the other strings while he is tapping gave me a hint to develop this technique. If that music had not required that technique, I would have never used it. It was very enjoyable to play, I really like this prelude. Hope you guys like my version as much as I like playing it.

Neil Zaza: Webcam Lessons Announcement

Neil Zaza-Live Webcam Lessons Announcement



By overwhelming demand, Neil Zaza is now offering live webcam lessons via Skype, FaceTime or iChat!

Please visit http://www.neilzaza.com/weblessons for more details and to sign up.
Here are some of the particulars:
Yes, that's right! You can actually study with Neil Zaza from the comfort of your own home!
Neil Zaza is now offering live webcam lessons on a limited basis to fans and students worldwide. This is a great opportunity to interact with Neil and learn not only various techniques on the instrument, but even pick up a few personal tips on playing some NZ tunes from the man himself. This is a fantastic chance any guitarist cannot pass up!
It's very simple to get started and here are just a few things you'll need:
A computer (Mac or PC) connected to a high speed internet connection.
A webcam that transmits video as well as audio
A guitar and amplifier
A great and dedicated attitude to learn
So Here's How It Works
Simply fill out the form below and someone from the Melodik offices will contact you to set up a time for your first lesson. Times are pretty flexible as we understand that different people live in different parts of the world and time zones. From there we'll set up a time for your lesson, you pay via Paypal and then just be online at that time for Neil to contact contact you to start your lesson. It's that easy!
Lessons are prepaid via Paypal and are $65 for one 30 minute lesson or if you purchase a complete month of lessons (4 lessons) the price goes down to $50 per lesson ($200). That's a savings of 23%! After pre-purchase the lessons need to be used within 6 weeks.
Since Neil only speaks English (and a few select swear words in Italian) we ask that all students be able to communicate clearly in English.

So What's A Webcam Lesson Like?
The great thing about a webcam lesson is that you can be in any part of the world and still have the opportunity to study with Neil. As Neil tours you never have to miss a lesson because he can connect from any hotel room or studio that he finds himself in. You get the benefit of learning from the comfort of your own home instead of driving to a local shop and sitting in a cramped room trying to concentrate over the drum lessons from a young Keith Moon in the next room over!
You can cover any musical subject with Neil ranging from picking, improvisation, technique, sweeping, theory, etc. The list is endless.
Throughout the lesson Neil will demonstrate various techniques relating to the subject you are studying. He will be able to tab various examples out on the spot or pull from the extensive personal library of teaching tabs that he has already prepared. He can then email the file to you in PDF format for you to review and study at your leisure.
Because of the limitations of video conferencing you'll find it difficult to both play at the same time. This has never been a problem and is not an impediment to the lesson.

Technically Speaking...
For webcam lessons Neil uses Skype (for PC and Mac users) or FaceTime/iChat for Mac.
You can download and sign up for Skype at www.skype.com. FaceTime and iChat come stock on an Apple, but you will still need to set up your Mac to work properly. All the recommended programs are free, but you need to install the software and sign up for the service.
Please have your computer (video and audio)working smoothly and problem-free prior to logging in to a lesson with Neil. Nothing kills the musical and learning muse more than technical difficulty.
Get Started Today!
Why study with some local guitar instructor when you can have lessons with Neil Zaza in the comfort of your own home? These lessons also make a great gift for the guitarist in your life. Visit http://www.neilzaza.com/about/skype.aspfor all the details!

Martin Barre: Says Jethro Tull on ice, Ian Anderson talks Thick As a Brick 2!!

Jeb: Before we get to Thick as a Brick 2, I talked to Martin Barre recently and he told me that Jethro Tull was currently on ice.

Ian: That depends on what your definition of ‘on ice’ is. Last June, Martin, Doane [Perry] and I had talks about what was going to happen in the following year. I explained that, as I have been doing over the last ten years, I have been doing more shows under my own name, as opposed to playing shows under the name Jethro Tull.

Martin also has many projects that he has been wanting to do. I told him last summer, as I have done on many occasions in the past, “Don’t let this time slip by. You should really be grasping this opportunity.”

Life is too short. If you miss that chance then you will say, “One day I will get around to doing another album. I will get around to working with some other musicians.” Suddenly, you realize that time has gone on and you can’t play any more because you’re too old and cranky. The opportunity is then gone. I think it is really important that at certain times in their lives people start to explore other alternatives.

I’ve been doing that for a while and Martin has, to some extent, but I think this year, from what I’m hearing, he has a bunch of projects underway. I think this will be really good for him as an individual. It will be good for the psyche and the soul to strike out on his own.

The term ‘on ice’ is probably a fair enough description. We put a fine wine on ice that we will enjoy drinking at a later time. We put strawberries or lobster on ice because we look forward to enjoying them at some point in time, in the not so distant future. If by ‘on ice’ you mean a corpse in a mortuary, then that is not a good description.

Jeb: But there are no Jethro Tull shows scheduled.

Ian: I don’t have any Jethro Tull shows lined up – they are not a feature of the moment. All of the shows I have lined up in 2012 are Ian Anderson shows but I said to Martin that if we receive an offer, and it is really interesting, then I would give him a call. We are not going to go out and just cram in some Jethro Tull dates just so we can play the repertoire. For a lot of people, though, it does tend to be the music that they want to hear. full extensive interview

Dee Cernile: Sven Gali guitarist passes... RIP

Dee Cernile, guitarist for Canadian bashers Sven Gali, was diagnosed with cancer in 2009 and, sadly, passed away this morning (February 25th).

"After such a courageous journey, two days ago Dee told us that he had nothing more to do here and he wanted to pass away to do what he needed to do elsewhere. This morning Dee got his wish and took his last breath. He went so very peacefully with love surrounding him and his hand held. He is now resting in peace. His family would like to thank everyone for all of

your love and support."
