Gretchen Menn: Joviana Marques captures the spirit of Gretchen from a Peter Jensen photograph

Gretchen Menn by Joviana Marques
Gretchen Menn
By the amazingly talented and gorgeous soul, Joviana Marques! I am honored!!!

Peter Jensen
I have embraced the contemporary remix culture as things I've done get remixed often and I'm usually not being paid royalties anyway. So it's all win as the work is given new life and new reach and a new spin with a new layer of creativity. But this was an altogether different level.

Joviana Marques!
A young artist from Brazil, Joviana Marques, straight up took me to school and sat my sorry ass in the corner. =) She made this painting based on one of my photos of the gorgeous guitar goddess Gretchen Menn, combing out all the injustices of my clumsy capture and restoring the subject to her full beauty. I really am duly humbled and wish I could make an image of such impact!

If you would like to have one of your photos made into a painting it's possible we could convince Joviana to do so...and for a few more minutes it may even be affordable. =) Talent like this once visible gets put to use, and I am proud to have been the middleman on this masterpiece.

This is the original photo by the super talented Peter Jensen

Simone Fiorletta: Personalities - the new album announced

Simone Fiorletta is at the forefront of Italian rock guitarists with a style and technique which is winning over fans worldwide. With 3 instrumental solo albums already behind him, not to mention albums with progressive metal outfits Moonlight Comedy and No Gravity, Fiorletta is now ready to unveil his fourth and most accomplished solo offering to date in “Personalities” on 7 June 2013 on Lion Music.

Home to 11 tracks (or personalities) the new album is the perfect reflection of where Simone Fiorletta is in 2013 on his ongoing musical journey with a more mature and refined, sound.

“Personalities” goes from subtle to all out frenzy and offers something for guitar lovers of every genre with many tones and timbres to match the mood of each song.

Check out the sample track “Waiting To See You Again”

On “Personalities” Simone plays with drum greats John Macaluso (Yngwie Malmsteen / James LaBrie / ARK), and Mario Riso (Rezophonic – Rock Tv ) as well as iconic Italian rock bassist Dino Fiorenza and sees guest performances from guitarist Fabrizio Leo on “Bottom Line”, keyboardist Andrea De Paoli (Labyrinth) on “To The Station” and fellow No Gravity guitarist Davide Perruzza on “Your Grit Is My Reason Of Life”.

“Personalities” track listing

01. Ascent
02. Your Grit Is My Reason Of Life
03. Waiting To See You Again
04. April 14th 2010
05. Bottom Line
06. Thirty
07. Unconditional Love
08. Doctor Jekyll And Mister Hide
09. To The Station
10. In Time Of War
11. You And I (At The Weekends cover)

Simone Firoletta first became known to a worldwide audience with the 2004 debut album ‘The Life Inside’ from progressive metallers Moonlight Comedy on Lion Music with whom he recorded the 2007 follow up ‘Dorothy’.

It was clear from these releases that Simone was a guitarist of considerable skill and so Lion Music offered a solo deal to focus on the instrumental side of Fiorletta’s musical leanings. This led to the solo albums ‘Parallel Worlds’ (2005), ‘My Secret Diary’ (2006) and 2009’s ‘When Reality Is Nothing’. All were well received by press and fans alike.

2011 saw a return to a progressive metal band format with the - to date - only release from No Gravity entitled ‘Worlds In Collision’ which saw many of progressive power metals best vocalists contribute.

Lion Music is proud to continue their long running collaboration with Simone Fiorletta for the release of “Personalities” on 7th June 2013 which is available for pre-order now at https://itunes.apple.com/album/personalities/id639133032

Walter Cianciusi,Dario Parente: Headless - the new album announced

Lion Music are pleased to announce the signing of HEADLESS, a metal band that sees Italian guitarists Walter Cianciusi and Dario Parente teaming up with one of Europe's premier rock vocalists in Göran Edman (Yngwie Malmsteen, John Norum) and a drum legend in Scott Rockenfield (Queensrÿche).

The forthcoming album "Growing Apart" sees 10 songs shaped around the classy drumming of Rockenfield and melodic vocals of Edman which fuse hard rock and heavy metal with progressive elements and sees digital release on 7 June 2013 on Lion Music with pre-order and track samples available now at https://itunes.apple.com/album/growing-apart/id639132828

“Growing Apart” Track Listing

01. God Of Sorrow And Grief
02. Primetime
03. Nero Fantasies
04. Calf Love
05. The Backstabbers Around Us
06. Be Myself
07. Growing Apart
08. Sink Deep In A Fairytale
09. No Happy Ending
10. As Tears Go By

Formed in the early 90’s by Cianciusi and Parente at a very young age, the band released the self-produced e.p. “Future To Past” and then in 1998 the full length album entitled “Inside You” which saw distributions worldwide by 99th Floor. During those years Headless performed in Italy supporting more established metal acts. The band then disbanded in 2000. The two guitarists (and songwriters) then reunited in 2011 and started working on the new songs which appear on “Growing Apart”.

Walter Cianciusi comments, “We began writing the album at the beginning of 2012. It’s been a long process because Headless is an international band and it's not easy to arrange meetings and rehearsals. We mainly used the internet to talk to each other and properly arrange the songs. We have the precious ability to record in our personal studios so we don’t feel the pressure of studio time. The album was recorded in different locations around the world (Sweden, Italy, USA) and mastered in Hollywood at Universal MusicStudios by Peter Doell (R.E.M., Marilyn Manson, David Lee Roth)”.

Lyrically there is a main subject matter in the songs: according to psychology Growing Apart is the reason why relationships come to an end. The band analysed how relationships between friends, lovers, man and God change and self-destruct through the years and put these ideas into the different songs.

"Growing Apart" gets its digital release through Lion Music on 7th June 2013.

Mike Philippov: How To Know If You Have Mastered Vibrato On Guitar

How To Know If You Have Mastered Vibrato On Guitar
Do you know how much your vibrato has improved over the last 6-12 months of playing guitar? Most musicians have no way to answer this question because vibrato is believed to be impossible to track progress with. Because of this, guitar vibrato rarely gets the practice time it deserves, leading to far too many guitarists playing with very inexpressive and simply ‘bad’ sounding vibrato.
To start, study the video below where I will show you how simple it is to assess your level of mastery over vibrato. Watch the video below before reading further:

To see the next part of this video, study this page about guitar vibrato technique.
After studying the above procedure for testing the current state of your vibrato, you need to adapt it as part of your regular practicing to track your progress with vibrato over time. Here is how you need to do this:

1. Don’t spend all of your practice time (for vibrato) practicing on only 1 pitch. You must also work on this skill in the real-life application scenarios of guitar licks and solos. Although this seems obvious, many people get stuck in practicing a certain technique in isolation without applying it into the real world.

2. Log the metronome tempos at which you are able to play vibrato technique, just like you track your progress with speed building exercises (scale sequences, arpeggios etc.). Of course when you do vibrato in actual music, it doesn't need to be strictly in time all the time, but you must have the skill to allow yourself to make it so, if needed. THAT is what will make it possible to choose the best and most expressive way of using vibrato in your songs and melodies. Knowing the precise metronome tempo at which you can do controlled vibrato will give you the perfect indication of how this area of your technique is progressing.

3. Spend some time recording your vibrato practice sessions and then listen back to the recordings at “half tempo” (this can be easily achieved in any computer recording program). Doing this will make it easier for your ears to perceive the nuances of how your vibrato sounds in real time. Most guitarists never analyzed their playing in that much detail and doing so leads to many new discoveries on how to make your guitar playing better.

4. When you do vibrato within guitar licks and solos, vary the rhythmic values you use to play it (exactly like I demonstrated for you in the video tutorial above). This is important to do because you don’t want to be boxed into only doing vibrato in a single way all the time. I also put this as a separate step from simply “training with a click”, because you will be thinking differently when playing over a musical track about your phrasing and vibrato than you will when practicing to a metronome.

Don’t forget the final result you are after: to make your vibrato sound GREAT. So don’t make the mistake of focusing on the tempo at which you are doing vibrato and losing sight of the other elements that must be refined to totally master vibrato.
Implement the above points into your practicing and you will start to see your vibrato (and your guitar playing) sound much better than ever before.
