Jacky Vincent: Combining Sweeping, Legato and Tapping

The following content is related to the September 2013 issue of Guitar World. For the full range of interviews, features, tabs and more, pick up the new issue on newsstands now, or in our online store:

As a guitarist, I have always found it important to build and maintain an arsenal of soloing techniques so that I can play as fluidly as possible when inspiration strikes. To present a range of musical expression within a solo, I like to combine three of my favorite techniques: sweep picking, legato articulations (hammer-ons, pull-offs and finger slides) and fretboard tapping.

Some of my favorite guitarists utilize this approach in their solos, and I've been inspired by them to integrate these techniques into my own style. This month, I'd like to demonstrate how I can combine these techniques in the formulation of a guitar solo.

One of my favorite soloing strategies is to begin a phrase with some sweep picking and then transition into a fast legato line. To me, this approach has the potential to create flurries of notes that don't sound predictable because the run as a whole is not based upon just one technique.

Falling In Reverse - "Alone"

Beledo: added to MoonJune artists label

BELEDO joins the MoonJune roster in multiple forms and shapes

please let me introduce You to a dear friend, an amazing electric and acoustic guitarist, pianist, composer, arranger, producer, occasional lute, violin and vibraphone player and as well, singer, BELEDO, considered a "myth" in his native country of Uruguay - will be joining the MoonJune roster next year, with several lead and side project. The second THE AVENGERS' cd is already in BELEDO's thoughts, while this Uruguayan guitar master is forming, with two outstanding NYC based musicians, CLINT BAHR on 12-strings guitar and MARKO DJORDJEVIC on drums (who will be drumming on the upcoming MoonJune release of Dusan Jevtovic), a power trio for the XXI Century to satisfy all MoonJune's appetites.

Aside from solo and side projects (all for MoonJune Records),BELEDO will join another upcoming "moonjunista", Toronto-based Romanian piano and keyboard wizard GIA IONESCO, scheduled for release in early 2014 (tentatively), the project promises to be broad in scope -- blurring all genre lines, in decidedly liberal fashion, by a group of participants hailing from an assortment of diverse cultural backgrounds: 7 musicians from 7 countries: GIA IONESCO on keyboards (Romania), BELEDO on guitars (Uruguay), MAURO PAGANI on flute & violin (Italy),JOHNNY JOHNSON on sax (Canada), JIMMY HASLIP on bass (USA), MINO CINELU on percussion and vocals (France) and ASAF SIRKIS on drums & percussion (Israel). Gourmand music fans of Mahavishnu Orchestra, PFM, Miles Davis, Gentle Giant and Frank Zappa will be very pleased with this project.

Additionally (see the poster below), BELEDO and GIA IONESCO CLINT BAHR on 12-strings bass andKIM PLAINFIELD on drums. This event will be recorded audio and video, and available for webcast, and if we are all happy with the final result, that might be another project featuringBELEDO, on MoonJune.

And finally, myself and BELEDO have traveled to Toronto, last June, to finish guitar parts for another GIA IONESCO's album that features as well ANTHONY CRAWFORD on bass and VIRGIL DONATI on drums and on few tracks, as well additional guitar solos by the guitar genius, ALEX MACHACEK.

Beledo's two latest solo projects are available now on SALE via MoonJune Records: THE AVENGERS "On Mission" & BELEDO "Montevideo Jazz Dreams". Please click on the cd icons below for more info.

Dean Zelinsky: Debuts New E-Commerce Signature Brand

Legendary Guitar Maker Dean Zelinsky Debuts New E-Commerce Signature Brand

Chicago, IL July 24, 2013 – Today, Dean Zelinsky launches his new line, Dean Zelinsky Private Label Guitars, taking a personal approach by selling his guitars through the company's e-commerce website Players are now able to purchase their instruments direct from the celebrated guitar maker. 
By utilizing the e-commerce platform, Zelinsky aims to offer guitar players access to higher quality instruments at the best possible price, while maintaining a strong connection with his fan base. Simply put, Zelinsky wants to build your guitar.

“Dealing directly with my clientele is the best way to do business,” stated Zelinsky, who emphasizes designing and building guitars is still his passion after nearly four decades. “World-class guitars will be delivered directly from my set up bench to the player’s door.” Zelinsky concluded.
Zelinsky is the first world-renowned guitar maker to adopt this “farm to table” approach, allowing his new Private Label brand to deliver a lot more guitar for the money.  Musicians can expect Zelinsky's uncompromising quality, design and latest technology at easily accessible pricing.
Outside the USA, Zelinsky is partnering directly with the top retailers in each country to offer this same best possible pricing to his international customers. 
Celebrated guitarists such as ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons, Pantera’s Dimebag Darrell, Michael Schenker, Sammy Hagar, The Cars Elliot Easton, Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine, Heart’s Nancy Wilson, Leslie West, Kerry Livgren of Kansas, Iron Maiden, Def Leppard and scores of others have all played guitars designed and built by Zelinsky. Now, all musicians can buy the same quality instrument direct from the man who created such luminary guitars. 
Dean Zelinsky Private Label provides new guitar technology including Zelinsky’s patent-pending Z-Glide Reduced Friction Neck, which applies an advanced aerodynamic concept to the surface of the guitar’s neck. By engraving precise patterns into the back of the neck, surface area is reduced, thereby providing musician’s greater mobility and playability from their instruments. Zelinsky says, “We remove 70% of the neck’s surface…the rest is air.”
The new offerings from Dean Zelinsky Private Label will include the Tagliare, StrettaVita and Zenyatta, all of which are Zelinsky’s innovative, new designs. 
Pricing on Dean Zelinsky Private Label Guitars range from $279 to $4500 USD.

Originally recorded by Within Another with vocals in mind, this song was re-worked and recorded again as an instrumental in 2004 in Chuck's studio while between bassists. Although a few live shows followed with a new bassist, this was the last demo recorded by Sternberg & Naccarato.
In 2006 a new Within Another lineup (now a 5-piece), again re-worked the song for vocals and titled it "Neglect," which became a live staple for many shows to come before the band dissolved in 2008.
