Daniele Gottardo: update on the new album

Daniele Gottardo: Hey everybody!
Long time no talkie eh? But I haven't forgotten about you guys!
I've have been very busy preparing my concert for the Eddie Lang Jazz Festival in Monteroduni, where I presented a preview of this album with a chamber orchestra and first class musicians. It was really great! 
Now, just a quick update!
I'm working on the parts of the piano, I also decided to add at the last minute the soprano voice to other song. I have finally finished editing some of the instruments recorded during the last period, inclusive of Flute, Oboe, English horn, Clarinet, Bassoon, French horn and Contrabassoon and all the rest of the virtual instruments. Soon I will start the recordings of my electric guitar and at the same time start the mixes of the orchestral and rhythm sections! Thanks again for your support and patience, I’ll be in touch soon.   
Daniele  ;-)

Wayde Cooper - Voiceless Promo

Jeffrey Ryan Smoots:
Technical, Melodic, Heavy Shred on Display: This is Wayde's finest instrumental album yet. It's technical and shreddy while still offering up melody. This is not easy to do, but Wayde pulls it off here. 
Listening to Voiceless for the past couple days, I'm reminded a bit of Testament -- there are some kick ass thrashy sections in many of the songs. I'm also reminded a bit of more contemporary bands like Nevermore, bands that use low tuned guitars and are not afraid to play guitar solos. Wayde is not afraid to cross genres -- and that makes this music more interesting, IMO. 
Did I mention some staggering guitar solos? You will find them here. Arpeggios abound, as do some off-kilter solo leads I wouldn't have a clue how to play.
All in all, this a kick ass album. Give it a listen, then support a musician and buy the album. You won't be sorry!

Wayde Cooper, Jeff Smoots and Nick Valenz, former members of the early 90's Seattle band Axis, have reunited after nearly twenty years to form Continuous Audio Transmission. During that time, the guitar solo has all but disappeared from popular music, and with it, an important aspect of the listener's experience has been abandoned. Out of respect to everyone who loves music, CAT is bringing the music back, and more... with no apologies to those who once controlled what you see and hear.

Sam Bell: Hybrid Picking Birthday Lick

Sam Bell
Thank you everyone for the Birthday wishes so far! I will try over the week to get back to people but I am very hungover, and i plan on drinking some more tonight. In the mean time, here is a lick as a way of saying thank you!

Its my BIRTHDAY TODAY ( 8th Sept) so here is a free lick! There is NO TAB, but here are a few clues... The lick uses the E Minor Pentatonic scale, using a 3 note per string fingering of the scale. The lick starts with an ascending Em7 arpeggio followed by E minor pentatonic descending in groups of 4. Then I simply take the same idea but move it up to the next position of the scale and end on a quick bend from D to E on the B string, I am using hybrid picking and pull offs to get a real twangy sound, its great fun. RIGHT now I am off to drink lots of beer! Enjoy!

Justin Liew: Get You Back - great tribute to Shawn Lane

Master Shawn Lane is one of my biggest influences and this is one of my favorite songs. I recorded a few videos of me playing this song (this song is just addictive!) on my old channel (jay123ouch) and just decided to do this again!

This was recorded with my guitar straight into a Line 6 UX2 interface using Shred amp simulator with Redwirez Greenback impulses. I was using my favorite hack as well - foot stool. This was actually the first take. I took more takes but decided that this sounds the best! Slipped a little during the massive legato part!
