Jikki: Death and Rebirth of the Soul - track from new album


This is sounding great to me... looking forward to the release.

Jikki: Good evening! From yesterday, I started recording the guitar in earnest. Innovation is not a type if you know how to keep stakeholders to focus on one song too, for the time being, from the place where pop, I'm falling apart and start recording. Yesterday, the song that I'm going to the last song of the album, I recorded only clean arpeggios. It is a song that Patrick and Billy told me to play, because the sense of time great both for 2 people, feelings and at the same time .... good I play, too, because of my sense of time is lost Do not be! ! I think, I was feeling the pressure to play strangely nervous. Incidentally, since this seems to be the most difficult album, lead guitar of this song, I have thought from practicing for a while, and I want to face the recording ..... Arpeggio is played on the Virage's VOX! Today, I played the arpeggio of 156 fast-paced songs. Because I wanted to finish the mechanical feel, here, I play the guitar The honor student, at Suhr. Since I piled in the same octave and octave stacked two, a total of three. . . Arpeggio on, which was played in front of PU Suhr, arpeggio below, the front and center of Suhr played on the half-tone. The long end of the recording but still, I rather work hard in this vein! ! !

Jikki is a Japanese female guitar player! Playing VOX Virage, Shecter. Jikki is now under the process of making her new album!

Reviewer: Flair Polo  -> translates to APRIL FOOL :)

Paul Gilbert needs no introduction. He's a realtor in New Jersey... okay, so he does need a little introduction. Paul is a American guitar player, born in 1966. He got an electric drill stuck in his hair onstage once, while on tour promoting a Mr. Big album. Gilbert's newest solo effort and thirteenth solo album, titled Beware The Giant Pinky, will be released sometime between October 2013 and March 2014, depending on the whim and whimsy of WHD Entertainment. Recorded at Eudaimonia Sound/Wishful Thinking Studios, this platter contains a lucky 13 actual songs, if you're European. If you're American or Japanese, you get 14 songs! Jam-packed with Gilbert's characteristic virtuosity, wordplay, wit, and candor, this release is sure to please just about any fan of contemporary music.

The first track is, as it says, complete silence. This is apparently a cover song from Jose de Castro's last European tour. I don't count this as a song, and neither does ASCAP, so the real music begins with Off The Charts. This is an insane instrumental free jazz tune. There is no fixed key nor fixed tempo - it goes where it wants, when it wants. For every 14 notes, there are 28 chord changes. It redefines music as you know it. What would happen if you put Al DiMeola, Guthrie Govan, and Sebastian Vettel together, with no food or water? Maybe something like this. If you like free jazz, you will adore this, as it's done in only the way Gilbert can deliver. It sounds like he's channeled Jaco Pastorius for the bass part on this tune, as a bonus.

Next we hear Beware The Giant Pinky, a vocal tune dedicated to four-finger, hand-busting stretches along the fretboard. This is followed by the closely-related Ouch, a vocal tune praising the "One Finger B.B King
 Bend". As an undisputed leader in good album sequencing, Gilbert follows this song with Immoral Notes, another vocal tune which emphasizes good and bad notes. We're admonished to pick out the immoral ones. All of them sound good to me, and there are about 11 million of them, something sure to please fans of 'fast, athletic' guitar.

Now we get to None Of Your F#C#i v G Business, a catchy instrumental song about complex chords (or arpeggios?) that look like swear words. Either that or it's really none of my f#c#ivg business. Finally, to round out the Music Education 101 on this latest opus, we hear the instrumental Praise The Chord (G sus). I guess there are a lot of g sus in this song. There are plenty of holes, and the phrasing is catchy, almost something you could chant along with, like a mantra. Just Leave It On The Table, Honey is a mellow, laid-back instrumental tune that reflects to both 'Fuzz Universe' and 'Vibrato' in that it is funky and full of  quirky note choices here and there. I can only guess that King is some sort of witty ode to Queen, because whoever's singing sounds like Freddie Mercury. It's an uptempo rockin' barn-burner of a song, probably the most 'get up and move' number on the entire disc.

Because 'Vibrato' contained no classical music cover song, 'Beware The Giant Pinky' makes up for this with a completely rearranged version of Beethoven's Ode To Joy. It sounds like a reggae or latin mix, and is sure to silence any critics that say Gilbert hasn't ventured into that genre frequently enough. Then we get Keyboard Solo, a jaw-droppingly fantastic instrumental lounge jazz number featuring, well, keyboards. And guitar (but just a little bit). Continuing the precipitation theme, the album picks up the energy with another vocal tune, It Rains In California. This is a cover (title slightly altered), originally recorded by Albert Hammond, re-worked as a 'pop-punk' mix. It sounds a bit  like Green Day meets the Foo Fighters.

Well, I guess it must have been a thunderstorm, because the energy turns dark and ominous. Something Is Going RawrRawrRawr is definitely a heavy metal tune. Whoever's singing the falsetto counterpoint lines sounds a lot like Jeff Martin. The 'rawr rawr rawr' chorus is memorable, and instantly catchy. It'll be a crowd-pleaser for sure. For an uncharacteristically heavy album finale, we get the death metal ditty I Love You, Darling. The lyrics are totally anathema to the song, if you can understand them. It took me a few listens: once forward, once backward, once sideways. It really IS a love song, but it's done in the very best cookie monster and nuts-in-a-blender high screech dual vocals that can be found on planet Earth. The awesomeness of the guitar work that goes along with this song will spaghettify you, just like if you got sucked into a black hole. I'm American, so I only got to hear the American bonus  track. It's also a bone-crushingly heavy metal anthem. It's a vocal tune called Kinda Creepy, and hmm, it seems to be about a 'cat fight' between 2 strange women on the Internet. What really impressed me was the music: it sounds like Celtic Frost meets Exodus meets S.O.D meets Morbid Angel. What a whopper. My neck hurt for hours after head-banging to this one. He could do a few more albums like that.

As is the norm for Gilbert's releases, the production is deep, crisp, and free of unintentional hiss. You can really appreciate all the layers within the music. What a showcase of skill! It defies genrefication, so let's just forget the labels and call it great music! The press sheet says that an instructional DVD is planned. The t-shirt has already been released. Unfortunately, there is no band lineup on the notes, so we can only guess who's involved besides Paul and Emi Gilbert.

Thanks to Jenn for the Foolery :)

Jason Sadites,Alex Machacek,Brett Garsed,Tony Levin,Bryan Beller: Jason's new CD - lets help to get it released!

Jason Sadites: CD Replication Costs for Jason Sadites Newest CD BROKEN

Jason is an independent guitarist based in Canada. He has recorded 4 full length CD's of his instrumental rock/fusion based music. Jason has recorded with many of the world's top musicians, including Tony Levin, Marco Minnemann, Chad Wackerman, Kenny Aronoff, Bryan Beller, Alex Machacek, Adam Nitti, Martin Motnik, Brett Garsed, Jerry Marotta, Gregg Bissonette and Matt Bissonette. 

What We Need & What You Get

Jason is looking for your help to fund the printing and replication of physical CD's of his latest album 'Broken'. 'Broken' was released as a digital download only CD in late 2012, since then Jason has received numerous requests to have a physical CD available for purchase. Unfortunately, the cost of replicating CD's would have put this project far over budget. For everyone who so generously donates out of their hard earned money, they will receive a physical copy of 'Broken' once the manufacturing is complete. They will also receive an digital download in either FLAC or mp3 of 'Broken' at the completion of a successful fundraising campaign here. They will also receive a personal 'thank you' on the album's liner notes. With larger donations, contributors will also receive physical copies of some or even all of Jason's other 4 CD's along with downloads depending on donation size.
'Broken' features amazing performances by Marco Minnemann, Kenny Aronoff, Bryan Beller, Martin Motnik, Alex Machacek and Adam Nitti. 

The Impact

With a successful campaign here Jason will donate $2 of every 'Broken' CD sold after the campaign to, a leading non-profit music charity whose main goal is to keep music alive in schools across Canada. 

Other Ways You Can Help

If you are unable to help monetarily, please help the campaign by sharing on social media sites. Indie Go Go offers many sharing tools to help with this. Thanks so much for your support!
