Derryl Gabel: news for Axe FX II users and Allan Holdsworth fans.

Hi Guitar Friends,
I have some exciting news for all of you Axe FX II users and Allan Holdsworth fans. A couple of weeks ago a friend of mine sent me his Yamaha MagicStomp pedal that included the Allan Holdsworth patches that were created by the man himself. This is such a great pedal but unfortunately it's not made anymore so the only way you can have these sounds is if you can find one on ebay. Well, that is unless you have an Axe FX II unit. Once I received the pedal I spent hours upon hours inputting the patches into my Axe FX II unit. I had an A/B pedal that allowed me to constantly check each setting and match it exactly. I have 3 of the best patches for you to download here at the Fractal Axe Forum. I'm hoping that these will be included in a future update of the Axe unit.

Here's a direct link below. Allan Holdsworth Patches for the Axe FX II

Enjoy,
Derryl

Joe Holmes: FARMIKOS release digital singles; sampler posted



March 14, 2014 - FARMIKOS, the new L.A. band featuring former OZZY OSBOURNE and DAVID LEE ROTH guitarist Joe Holmes and vocalist Robbie Locke, will be releasing 4 digital singles on Tuesday, March 18.

Farmikos Song Sampler 2014


"Scapegoat", "Kings of Dust", "Exit Stencils" and "The Sound of My Gun" mark Holmes' long-awaited return to the music scene after taking a lengthy break following his five-year stint with Ozzy Osbourne. Recorded at the Mouse House in Pasadena, CA with engineer/mixer Rich Mouser (SPOCK'S BEARD, TRANSATLANTIC, VAST), the songs feature guest contributions by Holmes' former Ozzy band mate, bassist Robert Trujillo (METALLICA), drummer Brooks Wackerman (BAD RELIGION), and writing collaborator Brent Hoffort (MY OWN MACHINE).





States Holmes: "We've been thinking long and hard about the best way put our music out. Rather than going the conventional route and putting out an album, we are releasing these 4 tunes digitally and plan on making additional singles available at regular intervals. We want people to experience our music as we create it instead of holding it to release all at once. We're excited because this approach allows our audience to grow with us.” Holmes goes on to say, “We had another really productive session recently when Robbie was back in town to lay down vocals and work on new material, so more music is in the pipeline ready to be unleashed, leading up to a full-length album later in the year."

FARMIKOS is Joe Holmes' first venture under his own flag since first attaining local notoriety with TERRIFF, an L.A. band he formed after taking guitar lessons as a teenager from none other than original Ozzy axeman, Randy Rhoads. Holmes eventually went on to replace ALS stricken Jason Becker on the 1991 David Lee Roth "A Lil' Ain't Enough" world tour. In 1995,Holmes was brought to the attention of Ozzy Osbourne who was looking for a new guitarist to take over Zakk Wylde's spot for the "Ozzmosis" album touring cycle. Holmes would go on to co-write 3 songs, "Facing Hell", "Junkie" and "That I Never Had", which appeared on Ozzy's 2001 album, "Down To Earth."

Holmes spent the last several years raising his family and eventually started to put together ideas for what would become FARMIKOS. Holmes began collaborating and creating material withBrent Hoffort and then joined forces with vocalist and Arkansas native Robbie Locke in 2011. "I really wanted to do my own thing and once Robbie came into the picture things really started to fall into place. It's taken us a bit longer than anticipated to get to this point but we're proud to finally present FARMIKOS to the world and letting people hear what we've been working on."
