Jason Becker: Carvin JB200C

In response to his still-strong legion of fans around the world, Carvin has created the Jason Becker Tribute JB200C electric guitar. The Custom Shop worked closely with Jason to design this instrument as closely as possible to his original DC200. The JB200C is loaded with many upgraded standard features, combined with our state-of-the art modern manufacturing processes.

For those of you that have been customers from the beginning of Jam Track Central, you will know that Alex Hutchings was one of the original artists and pioneers of artist jam tracks on the site. Alex has always been a jaw-droppingly great guitarist and after you check out his brand new Melodic Control series you will see that he has somehow got even better!
This brand new 5 track series is witness to Alex going back to his roots in the Rock/Fusion vein, packed full of his smooth sweeping lines, outside licks and of course his unique phrasing. The 5 tracks contain three harder hitters and two ballads that are all incredible full length songs with song-like structures: Intros, verses, choruses and of course solo sections. The smallest solo in this series is just under 4 minutes!! Now that is a huge amount of content!
Alex has really thought hard about how to follow up his hugely popular Custom Fusion and Jazzy Jams series and the idea behind this new series is about testing the control of melodic nuances such as bending, trem work, vibrato and general phrasing. This package is Alex at his best and it will really bring the best out of your playing too.
The package is available with all of the usual components (including Tab and notation in both standard and Alex's alternate tuning) for £19.99 and if you are after just the music to listen too then the EP version is available as well for £4.99.

Steve Vai,Joe Satriani,Paul Gilbert: ultimate Ibanez signature artist trio



For Vai and Satriani, their signature models have evolved, but haven't gone through as much of a change as Paul Gilbert's model. As he explains, "About 10 years ago, I was talking to a really good friend of mine at Ibanez and said, 'Yeah, I've been thinking up some ideas for a new guitar.' And he said, 'Paul, if you could just do one thing for us, just stick with an existing body style. Don't make it in the shape of an elephant or something. Go to the catalog, take something we already make – anything else you can do.' Of course, this immediately set my irreverent mind to work and I took an Ibanez Iceman, which has always been one of my favorite, cool-looking, pointy guitars, and I put it in Photoshop and flipped it upside down. At the time I was sort of having a rediscovery of some of my childhood guitar heroes and one of them was Frank Marino. I went to see Frank Marino and he had an SG with three single-coils in it. I'd never even used single-coils before, so I got together with DiMarzio and they helped me find the single-coil of my dreams. Frank Marino had also angled the pickup backward, sort of like the left-handed Hendrix guitar. I thought maybe there's something to that. So I did that in Photoshop and I thought those would look kind of cool if they went with it. I don't know if it'll sound any good, but it looks cool."


Vai adds, "Isn't that the important thing?" Paul laughs, "Half the battle right there. So it turned out to sound great. Really, almost by accident I came up with a guitar I just really, really love. So, in addition to the PGM, they've been able to evolve into the opposite of the Iceman, the Fireman – a pun in the title, which pleases me no end. And so that is my newest model. I'm digging this one. I've been playing it for almost 10 years now."  full article  http://gc.guitarcenter.com/interview/vai-satriani-gilbert/

John Jaunese: Heavy Metal Element


John Jaunese is currently working on a new CD project entitled Heavy Metal Element. The new album is a mix of covers from QUEENSRYCHE, YNGWIE MALMSTEEN, JUDAS PRIEST, DIO-era BLACK SABBATH, DREAM THEATER, and Jaunese's original music with his band. It is set to be released at the end of this year.

Jaunese commented: "inspiration for the album came from a fan who wrote a poem for and about me. After reading the poem I knew what I needed to do, and that was to create a record using all the inspiration from the years of listening to heavy metal music. This is the reason I play guitar and where my energy is drawn.”

The album is being released by Shredguy Records.

Shredguy Records' Michael McDowell commented: "John contributed a track on our compilation CD Shredding Across The World...Volume Two that was stellar in performance and production. For many fans it was their favorite track on the CD, and they have been asking for more from this great player. So now we are both in a position to give them more John Jaunese!”

So far recording has been completed for the Queensryche track ‘Silent Lucidity’. Joining Jaunese on this track is Harley Van Kirk on vocals, Bobby Ferkovich on bass, Op Sakiya on Keyboards and Orchestration, and Tom Clark on drums.

Gary Moore: Blues For Jimi CD


Eagle Rock Entertainment has announced the September 25 release of the Gary Moore CD, DVD and Blu-ray title "Blues For Jimi".

This release captures a unique concert featuring Moore playing Jimi Hendrix tracks, including such classics as "Purple Haze", "Foxy Lady", "The Wind Cries Mary", "Hey Joe", "Voodoo Child (Slight Return)" and many more. Filmed at the London Hippodrome on October 25, 2007, it was part of the launch for the Jimi Hendrix "Live At Monterey" program.

At the end of the night, Gary was joined by Mitch Mitchell and Billy Cox of THE JIMI HENDRIX EXPERIENCE for three tracks. The full lineup for this show was Gary Moore (guitar, vocals); Dave Bronze (bass); Darrin Mooney (drums) with Billy Cox (bass on tracks 9-11, and also vocals on the first two of those) and Mitch Mitchell (drums on tracks 9-11).

Both Gary Moore and Mitch Mitchell have passed since this concert took place, which makes the recording of this incredible night so special. Gary Moore was one of the finest British guitarists of all time and is one of the few players who could pay homage to Jimi Hendrix's groundbreaking and truly distinctive guitar style. This is a stunning tribute from one master guitarist to another.

"Blues For Jimi" track listing:

01. Purple Haze
02. Manic Depression
03. Foxy Lady
04. The Wind Cries Mary
05. I Don't Live Today
06. My Angel
07. Angel
08. Fire
09. Red House
10. Stone Free
11. Hey Joe
12. Voodoo Child (Slight Return)
