Infinite Guitar - Legato Tutorial Promo

It's Time To Progress
Introducing Al Joseph and his debut jam track package Progressive Developments at JTC. Containing three progressive metal style tracks, Al showcases a blend of classic rock/blues style licks in a metal setting as well as his incredible talent of creating melodic lines that get stuck in your brain. Al leans on his major influences throughout, including John Petrucci and another JTC artist Marco Sfogli and the results speak for themselves. There is a lot to learn from these 3 tracks!
In true JTC style you get the solo track, solo backing and extended jam tracks, the video performances and the TAB and notation (which was created by Al himself). Al has also written some track notes to accompany the package too.

A devoted wife, proud mother ,and active artist, her passion for creating and exploring the deeper aspects of life spills out of her piecing eyes.

Eyal Freeman: Lonelia - SHAZAM Live

Eyal Freeman's tune "Lonelia", performed live at Heineken Jazz Festival, with his group SHAZAM.

"Writing is the oddest thing for me, I never know what will trigger it.
Sitting one day in a hotel by the pool, I lifted my head,
& out of nowhere, there she was...
Venus rising from the water... she was gorgeous...

but... the thing that struck me was,
she had these big sad eyes, that you feel you can get completely lost in...
contrasting her beauty...
having that image in my mind for days, It somehow evolved into this tune.

Bringing this tune to the band, the tune's eery ballad nature,
proved to be a unique challenge for me to improvise on,
It was either you feel it, or forget about it, nowhere to hide."

Yiannis Papadopoulos: wins Guitar On Sky competition

Guitaronsky Shredding Contest II The Winners
1st Place: Yiannis Papadopoulos
2nd Place: Azli Violet
3rd Place: Morgan Reid


Click here to read the official blog post:

I'm so excited to finally announce this competition after the complicated days during judging and video editing. Things came up while organizing the judging process. They are all busy on tour, gigs, and recording, so I was lucky to have them on the judging table and make a hard decision considering that the entries are all great.

36 entries, is not a big amount of contestants. It may caused by the backing track that sounds unfamiliar to some of guitar players out there. I know it's a kind of hard stuff composing soloing line over the backing track. And it's challenging to some people. That makes those who entered this contest are special. I personally would like to give my big respect for them (bows).

The entrants show a complete performance with all styles and techniques. So, we decided to categorize the top 3 based on their musicality. Here are the criteria we noticed at; skill/technique, shred, and soloing concept. Those were what blown us away. We had some different opinion about the winners, so the total score helped us to pick the top 3. This would be the most objective way of judging I've ever conducted. So, congratulations to the winners. Please contact me at to send your address for the shipping.

All the best,

Edwin Mclean


Andy Wood: "It's an honor to be a part of it!"

Sam Bell: "All of the top 3 entire impressed me immensely, it's hard to categorize them in order. They all brought something unique to the table, and it was great to hear their ideas over my backing track. Congratulations guys!"

Troy Stetina: "All the players showed a masterful command on the technical end. Where the differences showed themselves to me were more in the area of the feel of the lines, and musicality... which lines seemed to pull me in and hold interest and move in ways that were somewhat unexpected, yet totally "right". Distinctive."

Edwin Mclean: "This is a shredder's day out! Everyone learns each other and has a serious impressive way to play over the backing track. This is not actually about being a shredder, making a dream solo is all about. Thanks to all who let this happened."
