Dario Buongarzoni: In the end - a tribute for Shawn Lane

Thursday, 26 September 2013

Shawn Lane 10 Year Memorial Concert at Newby's in Memphis
Facebook web site:
Shawn Lane (March 21, 1963 – September 26, 2003)
Guitar World magazine wrote in 2008, "Few, if any, guitarists can play faster than Lane could, and his arpeggio sweeps and precision-picked lines blasted more rapid-fire notes than the average human mind could comprehend."

Rick Graham: Rock Guitar Essentials clinic announced for Leeds, UK.

Event: Rock Guitar Essentials with Rick Graham
Rock Guitar Essentials with Rick Graham
We run a wide variety of workshops and masterclasses but it has been a while since we have run a rock based session. In response to the demand of our students we are happy to bring you a special session with master guitarist Rick Graham

Rick is a graduate of the prestigious Guildhall School of Music and Drama at the Barbican in London. He is a skilled classical guitarist but it is in rock based styles where he excels. He released his first EP in 2005 to high critical acclaim before relocating to the south of France to work as a session guitarist and performer, appearing on French television and radio several times. Since then he has released his high anticipated solo album 'Insideout' in 2010 which received rave reviews. He went on to play at the Frankfurt Muscmesse, the London Guitar Show and NAMM in California. In 2011 he was crowned 'Guitarist of the Year' by Guitarist magazine.

In this session Rick will give you the tools and guidance you need to become one with playing rock guitar. Every facet of your approach will be given treatment from guidance on technique, theory and aural skills through to making the best use of your practice time and how to get the tone you need for best effect. The session will be very hands on and participants are encouraged to bring their guitars to get stuck in and start applying the concepts taught in the session. The best thing is that you do not need to be an expert player to join in the session and during discussions for this class Rick strongly emphasised that anyone can take part and that the concepts taught will be applicable to everyone involved.

This event will be held at Music Nation Leeds at Cape Industrial Estate on Saturday October 5th from 14:00 - 17:00.

Playing on the m7(b5) chords seems to be a bit awkward for some reason.
Here are some nice tricks to help you burn over those chords, and add that flavour over other chords, like there was nothing to it!

Joe Bonamassa: Driving towards the Daylight LIVE at Vienna

Joe Bonamassa - Driving towards the Daylight LIVE at Vienna
Get FREE song download here:

Hailed worldwide as one of the greatest guitar players of his generation, Joe Bonamassa has almost single-handedly redefined the blues-rock genre and brought it into the mainstream. He continues this role with his first-ever entirely acoustic concert, recorded at the venerable Vienna Opera House with a global ensemble put together by longtime creative partner Kevin Shirley. The 2CD/2DVD/Blu-ray, An Acoustic Evening at the Vienna Opera House, comes out March 26, 2013 on Bonamassa's label J&R Adventures.

Bonamassa -- a predominantly electric guitar player -- was ready for a complete departure from his usual projects. For years, he had been wowing audiences with his flagship acoustic song "Woke Up Dreaming," which has become an iconic staple of his world tour and a fan favorite. Building on the popularity of this song, Bonamassa and producer Shirley set out to design an entirely new and intimate "unplugged" concert experience

Feodor Dosumov: Double Edge jam track

Feodor Dosumov returns with an incredible brand new track which brings with it a new concept for JTC. This 5 minute track features not only the solo transcribed, but the incredible slap rhythm guitar as well. Plus, Feodor filmed both parts live, so you can really analyse exactly how he did it!

This track sums Feodor's artistic skills up completely....mixing Fusion, Funk and Electronica. The solo is incredibly catchy, soulful and full of technique whilst the slap guitar is delivered with perfection.

There is a massive amount to learn in this one track so we have added a number of bonus assets to help you. These include the separate rhythm and solo videos, as well as a mixed version, backing tracks with and without the rhythm guitar and 18 pages of TAB for both parts.

There is a reason why Feodor Dosumov is one of the most talked about up and coming guitarists in the world right now....and this track will teach you why. Take a lesson from the man himself and download this track!

Sergey Boykov,Marcel Coenen: OSV - Genesis Effect

Now Available!!! Be one of the first to purchase brand new OSV album "Genesis Effect" featuring Sergey Boykov - Keys / Marcel Coenen - Guitar / Gary Oppert - Drums / Steve Sexton - Bass !!!! Attention fans of Planet X, Steve Via, Dream Theater and LTE!!! All Instrumental Progressive Rock Metal Fusion!!!

Dimitris Starakis:
One of the most underrated instrumental projects returns with a new CD and at the same time makes a reviewer’s life harder. How is that? It is so difficult for one to be precise when in need of transforming his emotions into words, when the songs he listens can “speak” through notes. Drummer Gary Oppert and bassist Steve Sexton join again forces with guitarist Marcel Coenen and Sergey Boykov and deliver us a wonderful album that I enjoy even more than their previous efforts.
“Genesis Effect” includes 11 tunes, balancing on improvisational forms, while mixing guitar and keyboard leads from Coenen and Boykov. Since we all know how great guitarist Marcel is, I would like to stress again the great talent of Sergey Boykov. I think it is quite hard to find a keyboard player that can deliver strong melodies that play a strong role in a song, without just “filling” some gaps. The listener can enjoy his important role in songs like “Anti-Matter”, “Sixth Sense”, “Zero Amplitude” (what an opening riff!) and “Departure”. Another brilliant instrumental tune that OSV are always able to make us enjoy. 

I know that it is hard for an instrumental band to produce a constant surplus of musical enjoyment, but OSV have the Midas touch! Another highly recommended instrumental album full of creativity and musical brilliance!
