Joe Chawki: this cat is lining up an Indiegogo project - want a part of that legato paw action!

Indiegogo drops soon gentlemen... I will remind I'm a genuine "underdog" here...I don't have thousands of views, thousands of likes, I don't have any previous albums of my own, no current tours, endorsements...nadda...However I do believe I have something to offer and some others agree... So...when considering who to give to and why...consider some of those things. Indiegogo and Kickstarter should be less for people with an established following and presence and more for people beginning with zero...That's how I see it.

Will Wallner: Former White Wizzard Guitarist Announces New Wallner/Vain Album

Former White Wizzard Guitarist Will Wallner Announces New Wallner/Vain Album, New Track Posted Online

New 'Will Wallner & Vivien Vain' album to be released in May, New Track Posted Online - Monday Febuary 10th 2014

British blues-rock guitarist and 'Guitar World' columnist Will Wallner and Croatian singer Vivien Vain have completed work on a new album titled 'The Battle of Clyst Heath' set for release in May 2014.

Since his departure from traditional metal band 'White Wizzard' (Earache/Century Media) in October 2013 Will Wallner has been working on new music with former White Wizzard drummer Giovanni Durst for what would become the new 'Wallner/Vain' album. Swedish bass player Bjorn Englen (DIO Disciples / Yngwie Malmsteen) also contributed bass to several tracks. The title track from the album can be heard below. Will Wallner comments:

"When I left White Wizzard it was assumed it was because of the difficulties we encountered on our 2013 European tour. In actual fact I was going to leave the band regardless to pursue making music I could be proud of artistically. For that reason I'm very excited about the new album me and Vivien have just finished. I set out to make an honest hard rock record which would express who I am as a musician and guitar player. I feel very fortunate to be able to have such talented musicians record alongside myself and Vivien. Every musician performs superbly without the need for auto-tune or 'chop and paste'. Heres a taste of what you can expect from our new album."

Will Wallner & Vivien Vain: The Battle Of Clyst Heath

'The Battle Of Clyst Heath' was recorded in 2013 in Los Angeles, CA and Poland. The music draws heavily from British hard rock influences such as Rainbow, Thin Lizzy and Deep Purple. The majority of the album features a single line-up but once again features several legendary guest musicians. Full details will be announced shortly.

Formed in 2010 as a studio project in Los Angeles 'Will Wallner & Vivien Vain' have spent the past 3 years working with some of the most respected musicians in Hard Rock & Heavy Metal from bands including Black Sabbath, Deep Purple and Rainbow. Their debut album (Will Wallner & Vivien Vain) was released on October 8th 2012 via Polish record label 'Metal Mind Productions' with guest musicians Derek Shernian, Carmine Appice, Jimmy Bain, Vinny Appice, Tony Franklin, Brian Tichy, Rudy Sarzo and Tony Carey.

Wayne Gardner: Magellan's guitar player dies - rip

“Today, my brother Wayne Gardner, died from a self inflicted use of a firearm. Our family is devastated by his loss and in a state of shock. I prefer not to relay any further details until I know all the facts myself. I will always cherish our time as kids growing up and our life in pursuit of music. All the effort and joy of our unique experience is what I want to think about now. His young family is my immediate concern. Please say a prayer for his eternal soul and for his family. We all love you Wayne and hope peace in God are with you. Your loyal brother…”

A few weeks ago I was approached by Positive Grid asking if I wanted to demo their apps Bias and Jamup Pro! Big thanks to them, I love it! I've got to say, I'd prefer Bias+Jamup to quite a few other famous amp modelers! Great tone in a tiny package you can take anywhere with you! Check em out!

JamUp is a professional Guitar/Bass Multi-Effects Processor for iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch, praised by artists such as Periphery, Trivium, Ola Englund, Jeff Loomis and Keith Merrow. BIAS is the most realistic Amp Designer, Modeler and Processor. Both apps can be integrated and work seamlessly.

Rob Chappers: Train your ears!

Rob Chapman
Do you want to improve your overall playing? Stuck in a rut? No matter what style/genre it's essential to understand the basic building blocks of music... and that's the "Key" to freeing yourself musically.

Otherwise you only get half the face to melt... (5th, octave etc) and that's not as cool as a whole face (b2, b5, 7 etc)

If you don't know basic theory, or maybe your teacher just teaches you licks/songs and doesn't go into theory - then I can help with my "train your ears" system.

It's fun, easy and basically gets the job done... you know me... it's not going to serious or boring.

Paul Gilbert: new web site, Ibanez FRM250MF and the G4 Experience

Paul Gilbert
My brand new official website is online! Check it out at
Lots of new photos, links, and news! Paul's brand new Ibanez signature guitar, the FRM250MF has been announced, and is available for pre-order from Ibanez dealers like Sam Ash:

Paul demonstrates the guitar and talks about its features on this video:

This year, Paul celebrates 25 years of signature guitars with Ibanez. The new Fireman is the culmination two and a half decades of this very successful pairing.

The Ibanez FRM250MF is great for playing big, resonant notes... and for waving in the air like a javelin!

More than a show, more than a seminar, more than a backstage pass, the G4 Experience will give you musical inspiration and guitar ideas that will keep you playing for years to come. Those who have attended Paul's "Great Guitar Escape" camp know that Paul puts everything into making these camps into unforgettable events. Paul will be performing, teaching, and offering everyone who attends a chance to jam with him. For the G4 Experience, Paul teams up with Joe Satriani, Andy Timmons, and Mike Kenneally. All of these amazing players will be sharing their guitar knowledge and musical insights with the campers, and doing unique, close-up performances. On August 11-15, the G4 Experience will be the center of the guitar universe. Be there!

Jennifer Batten: evening of Jeff Beck music rescheduled date announced

Cameron Allen: sets up a Kickstarter project for the new album

The music is written! The production team is ready to go! Now we need your help to get Cameron Allen's new album recorded and released!

I'm thrilled to say that, after more than two years in the making, my new album is finally written and ready to be recorded! This album is a collection of original instrumental material that represents an exploration into new musical terrain for me.

Much of the sonic imagery painted by these compositions is inspired by events that happened in my life during a profoundly transformative, eye-opening, and life-changing period - a period of novelty, discovery, and growth, all of which served as powerful creative fuel. The artistic visions that arose in me from all this tremendous new experience couldn't be fully realized with the existing, familiar musical devices in my bag, so I set out to find brand new tools that could accurately depict my inner vision and deliver the desired effects. The result is a set of compositions that draw from elements of many genres of music: rock, jazz, Romantic-era classical music, progressive metal, Baroque-era classical music, funk, film music, and more. Furthermore, inspiration from literature, cinema, and other art forms also played a part in my approach to shaping certain aspects of the presentation of the music.

Yet, even with the variety of influences, the creative process was always guided by a definite inner vision, with each composition having its own distinct story to tell, and with the album as a whole having its own overarching narrative at work. I believe that this has given the music an episodic character that allows each track to be enjoyed purely on its own as a standalone work, while also having a cohesiveness and unity that allows the album to be taken as a whole with even deeper layers of meaning and substance emerging.

One of the most exciting parts about this project is the cast of highly skilled people that I've arranged to work with! From the musicians to the engineers to the graphic designers, the other people involved with this project at every step are total professionals, very talented, and wonderful people to work with! With their expertise and experience, the final product is sure to come out sounding and looking great!

With that said, if I am going to work with such capable and skilled folks, I need to be able to take care of them financially. In addition, the CD printing and replication costs aren't cheap, and when you add copyright, licensing, and related fees on top of all that, it comes out to a pretty hefty total! As an independent artist, funding a project like this on my own is simply not possible.

So I need your help! Please contribute if you can - every dollar counts! And remember that this is an all-or-nothing project - if the goal is not met, no money whatsoever will come from it, and I'll be back to square one! So please help in whatever way you can, and please share this page with others! Your help is appreciated more than you know! Thanks so much, and I look forward to sharing this new music with you!

-Cameron Allen
