George Marios,Fred Brum,Hedras Ramos,Enrique Berdonce: Live For Today Jam

Enriddick has proposed we did a jam with other cool players over this Andy James backing for JamTrackCentral, and I thought it would be cool, considering that almost everything I upload has a more "serious" note to it. I later knew George Marios and Hedras were joining us in the jam, which was another reason to do this - I find it awesome to jam with people with such distinct approaches and backgrounds, and this was indeed a lot of fun! :)

Many thanks to Enriddick for the invitation and to Enriddick, George and Hedras for the killer playing. I hope you guys enjoy!

Check these guys out for some lovely playing! :)

Brett Garsed,Alessandro Bertoni: the solo from upcoming album - Brett in awesome form

Keyboard player Alessandro Bertoni, grew up in Treviso, Italy,started out with the obligatory childhood classical piano lessons at the Conservatory. Later, he approached to jazz and contemporary music language ,attending course and workshops in Milan and Padua and from then on he went into this musical direction. He continued those studies until he moved to Los Angeles to attend the Keyboard Program at the Musicians Institute in Hollywood and got in contact with the finest LA musical scene and had lessons with top-class teachers and performers.

As composer and band-founder he released his full length debut album “Aphelion - Franticode - “ mixed by in Los Angeles by the keyboard-famous Derek Sherinian. "Franticode" gained valuable popularity as a world acclaimed release due to its on-your-face and intense instrumental technicality, well-blended with jazz/fusion oriented sense of phrase.

Alessandro’s inspired by all the music he wish he wrote and played ,his playing and tastes encompass fusion, funk, nu-jazz, progressive and he’s ceaselessly practicing and composing in various media and styles. His formula for music is definitely played by those who display their prowess with long ascending soulful and tasteful grooves designed to keep a body and a mind in motion.

He’s currently working on a number of projects within the jazz/fusion realm both as composer and performer and collaborating with a variety of world class player with the likes of bassist and vocalist Chris Buck, drummer Sam "The Bull" Aliano, canadian bassist Rod Chappel (Lightspeed), and many others from different musical background all over the world.

A brand new nu-funk/groovy/experimental project called "Sycamore Lab" is now in the pipeline in collaboration with top-class guitarist/composer/producer Marino De Angeli and a variety of guest appearances.

James Norbert Ivanyi: Solo record pre-production

James Norbert Ivanyi - Solo record pre-production "track II" play though.

I've been busy this year chipping away writing music for my debut instrumental solo record, as some of you may, or may not know. I'm having a blast doing it, and in the spirit of sharing, I wanted to perform one of the songs for you guys, in the 'play through' fashion. So turn it up nice and loud!

In this video, I share some thoughts on the song itself, my Suhr Antique Classic guitar, and perform the song 'track ii'. All the music is in the 'pre-production' stage, and is yet to be finished, or mixed. I hope you enjoy this song! - I have always wanted to write song's like this, with a 'vintage' yet dark edge and feel. I used some cool old vintage keyboard, organ and wurlitzer sounds, which I am also very fond of playing. Although it's not the most technical song in the batch of songs, I thought it would be fun to perform, as I've never used this style of guitar for an entire song. Not until I played the Suhr Classic about a year or so ago, was I comfortable to make a guitar ...

Marty Friedman, Jason Becker: Marty talks about Earthquakes and Jason in the latest Guitar World interview

What is your favorite memory of playing with Jason Becker in Cacophony? And what’s your relationship with him like at the moment? — Blaz Lenarcic
I loved jamming with that guy. It’d be hard to pick out a specific memory, but I always remember going to his house and hanging out with his family. They would treat me so nice and have food ready and make it real comfortable for us to play guitar all day. And what’s better than that? I really enjoyed playing with him on all levels.
He and I have been best of friends since then. We’re still in contact, and you would never know he’s going through the things he’s going through if you were to peek into our correspondence. [Becker has been paralyzed due to the effects of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis.] It’s exactly the same as it was before. He’s a wonderful inspiration. Any time I start to feel lazy, he inspires me and I just start to kick ass.

Neal Schon: Wins Damages from the Daily Mail for False Allegations

Nice to see the British papers are still up to their normal in depth analysis and research before posting defamatory articles...

False Allegations by the Daily Mail about Neal Schon "It also reported claims that Mr Schon was a “drunk and abusive man” who had become “increasingly spiteful and vindictive” using his money to bully his ex-wife and that his fiancée Michaele Salahi had turned him against his former wife...

After being threatened with court proceedings by Neal Schon  the Mail admitted that The story was but a tissue of lies and posted this on their web site as part of the recompense for the wrongful accusing:
"We accept that these allegations are untrue and apologise to Mr. Schon, Ms. Salahi and the family for any distress caused. We have agreed to pay Mr. Schon and Michaele damages and legal costs."

Sam Coulson: Rising Sun Blues

Sam Coulson in duet mode, pinching chords... when will he give them back?

Sam Coulson:
Pinching Chords again!

This time from House of the Rising Sun. The song dates back to the 18th century but was made famous by The Animals more recently.

I changed the chords a little bit to add some drama and reeled off some bluesy licks over the top.

If you could take the time to rate the video I would greatly appreciate it. It helps me reach new people :-)

Thank you for watching
