Jordan Rudess, Lalle Larsson, Derek Sherinian: Classic Rock top five Keyboard player poll

Lalle LarssonI would like to give a big thanks to the readers of Classic Rock (Prog) magazine who voted me top five Keyboard player in the 2011 readers poll! I am actually quite surprised by this and I am honored by the support! Judging by record sales I am more of an underdog so it feels good to know that my playing has actually reached out and touched some people out there. Thank you for voting! A big congratz to Jordan and the guys!

Leah Woodward,Graham Pin Pinney: Aliases

What does the new Aliases record sound like? Do you have any hilarious stories from the studio? If not, then make one up. I want it to be ridiculous and I want it NOW.

The CD is a wild amalgamation of violin solos, midget mimes, horse noises, flatulence, squeaky shoes, boiling kettles, LOUD NOISES, jangling keys, tribal dances, petty arguments, soft porn, bongos, Joe coughing, Justin Beiber samples and there isn’t a whole lot of music, guitar or anything technical on there. We’re really happy with the results and think you guys are going to really enjoy it!

As for the studio stories, there aren’t many. We didn’t spend a whole lot of time in the studio as most of the CD was recorded live rolling naked in fields.

Pin and Leah came down to the Invictus Guitars workshop for a little chat! We decided that since they were here, we'd record this cheeky playthrough...
The track is Sirens, the finalĂ© to their "Safer than Reality" album available now direct from Basick records, iTunes and retail outlets. You can check out any news from Aliases at their facebook page on --------------------------------------------------------------------------------­-------------
Gear Rundown:
-Pin is playing his gorgeous Blackmachine B2 fitted with Bareknuckle pickups
-Leah is playing one of our own Invictus Guitars!
*An Alder carvetop SSH model, thru-neck design
*24 fret with a bubinga fretboard 25.5" scale
*Bareknuckle nailbomb calibrated set
*Gotoh bridge
*Reverse headstock.
We're running this live through both a Pod HD Pro and a Fractal Audio Axe Fx (direct to board).

Both Pin and Leah are joining our swelling ranks, each with a brand new Invictus build on the way. We'd also like to thank all those others that have a hand in this video, including:
Basick Records, Blackmachine Guitars, Bareknuckle pickups, Line 6, Fractal Audio and many others.
Please make sure to check our own facebook page at and our website (coming soon) at to keep an eye out on our current builds and numerous upcoming events!
This will be the first in a series of Aliases videos, in collaboration with the Invictus Guitars workshop. Watch this space...

Chris Bieniek: Peripatus - original in 5/4 - more great jazz playing

Peripatus (the tune) : An original of mine in 5/4. The clip starts at the solo section and the head of the tune is at 1:34.
For anyone interested the chord progression is:
Cm7 X2, Fm7, F#13, Fm7, G7#5, Cm7X2, G7#5, Ab13, Ab/Bb, G7b9/B, C sus2, Eb sus2, Bb sus2, Ab sus2, F#13, G7#5

Peripatus (velvet worm) - an invertebrate which gives birth to live young rather than laying eggs. It has remained unchanged for approximately 570 million years. This unique animal has the appearance of a caterpillar with its many pairs of legs.
A defenceless, weaponless animal, it comes out at night, and is said to capture small insects by squirting jets of slime from its mouth.
