Shahab Tolouie: Fusetar triple neck guitar
FuseTar " Lucifer", is a triple neck (guitar), 16-stringed, new hand-made music instrument, created by Iranian multi-instrumentalist and composer Shahab Tolouie. It took a year and half for two luthiers Mehr & Owrang (Crimson Oath) to build the FuseTar.
The name is derived from "fuse" -- English for "fusion" and "tar" -- Farsi for "strings"; hence 'fusion of strings'. The nickname Lucifer is that of the mythological morning star, the bearer of light.

The uppermost is a fretless neck, which makes possible to play the quarter-tones peculiar to eastern music. The middle neck is the 'guitar neck', a combination flamenco/jazz guitar configured with the "true temperament" fretting technology, which produces more accurate intonations and longer sustain than a normal guitar and is used, for example, by John McLaughlin and Steve Vai. The third neck is a Persian 'setar neck' with four strings fretted for quartertones, a traditional instrument whose roots stretch back 2,000 years. This is the first time a traditional Persian instrument has been modernized with the fixed, "True Temperament" fretting system.

Telvin @ Konya
Erkan Oğur's Telvin World | Anatolian Jazz & Blues Band from Turkiye
The band, Telvin, has become a legend in international musical circles and has finally recorded its long-awaited album. The double-CD combines elements of contemporary jazz with traditional Turkish themes and showcases each musician's virtuosity.
Together, the band has placed contemporary jazz music at the heart of its sound -- it is the main axis of Telvin. There is vibrant inspiration from European jazz with deep impact of 1970s rock and jazz fusion. Each musician's individual skills and passion have been distilled and melded into the band's compositions. This individualism combined with virtuoso technique has helped them create their very own unique sound.

The Telvin project aims to carry with it the rich musical repertoire of Anatolia, on one side traditional drums and on the other the erbane (tambourine). Music is a function of the past. There will be music in the future, but its existence is dependent on the music of the past.

Simon Lees: Impromptu Solo in Sussex

This is a completely improvised solo I played during a gig in Battle, Sussex when the bassist in the band went to the dressing room to change a string.

Simon Lees Impromptu Solo in Sussex.mpg

The 10th guitar solo I've recorded for my Human Guitar album. This one was filmed in a bit of a rush and goes off slightly on the final runs but it gives you an idea what the finished product will sound like. If I had to compare it with coffee this one's a triple espresso......

Andy James: Sacred Mother Tongue - A Light Shines...

EMI Label Services has set a September 3 release date for SACRED MOTHER TONGUE's brand new EP, "A Light Shines...". This is the band's debut release on EMI Label Services and precedes SACRED MOTHER TONGUE's second album, "Out Of The Darkness", which will be made availale early next year.

"A Light Shines..." is a defining moment for SACRED MOTHER TONGUE, their stake in the sand as one the most exciting bands in British metal. Opening with the powerhouse chorus and heavy-as-hell guitars of "Evolve/Become" and followed by the thumping darkness of "Seven", it's instantly apparent that SACRED MOTHER TONGUE has made a quantum leap on from its well-received debut album, "Ruin Of Man", in 2009, from which they reinterpret "A Final Idea" as an acoustic number on this EP.

"A Light Shines..." EP track listing:

01. Evolve/Become
02. Seven
03. A Final Idea (acoustic)
04. City Is Crying (live from China)
