Abby Clutario: Fuseboxx - Pagbalik live extended version

Fuseboxx is a 4-piece Pinoy (Filipino) Progressive band formed in 2001. They received widespread acclaim for their musical-precision and -technical proficiency. This, especially so for their ability to meld and incorporate Filipino sentimentality with the different musical elements from a vast array of genres (rock, fusion, pop, classical, new age, metal, alternative, etc.) in order to create cohesive and thematic materials—indeed, arranging their music into movements that convey a compelling musical message.

Considered as one of the strongest local live acts, they leave any rock fan, musician or musical critic breathless with their ability to constantly amaze the audience—as much because of their complex arrangements and musical dexterity as the apparent passion each member puts into the creation and performance of their music.

Truly, watching Fuseboxx perform proves to be an unforgettable and visceral experience, proving that musicality and creativity at the level of all known fusion and progressive rock bands in the international music scene (such as Rush, Dream Theater, Yes, Emerson, Lake & Palmer, Genesis, etc) isn’t reserved for bands of the First World alone... With Fuseboxx, the Third World, especially the Philippines, can continue to hold aloft the banners that show what kind of musicians “Filipinos” are made of.

Album Notes
On November 13, 2011, a 6-hour guitar festival was held to honor Jason Becker, the incredible guitarist known for his extraordinary work with Cacophony, David Lee Roth and Marty Friedman, among others. Out of deep respect for Jason and love of his work, each guitarist featured at this tribute show waived their usual performance fees, playing that day simply to honor one of their contemporaries and source of great influence: Jason Becker, a modern day guitar great. All notes played that night were dedicated to the great Jason Becker in support of his struggle against the disease ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis), which is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord.

Contributing artists who played for Jason include: Guthrie Govan, Stuart Hamm (Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, Frank Gambale) , Michael Lee Firkins, Mattias Eklundh (Freak Kitchen), Marco Sfogli (James LaBrie Band), Kiko Loureiro (Angra), Daniele Gottardo, Stéphan Forté (Adagio), Andy James, Atma Anur, Joop Wolters, Marcel Coenen, Timo Somers and more…

Mixed by Jacek Glowacki and Atma Anur, produced by Atma Anur. Mastered by Maor Appelbaum Mastering California USA.

The proceeds of this CD go to Jason Becker's Care Fund. 

Giancarlo Zaffoni: Baba O'Riley stunning two handed tapping display

This is my arrangement for the intro of The Who's hit "The Baba O'Riley". I've transposed the synth part on the guitar, by using the tapping technique and a programmed delay. In the video I've show you the setting for both guitar and effects. I've tried to get as close as possible to the original synth part, and I think I pretty did that.
The video ends with a fading to black and the label that says "And so on...". This is because from that point you can simply build up the music by varying the last one pattern.
Hope you enjoy it!
