News: the Hammer Jammer - hammering device for innovative techniques guitar

Guitar Invention - hammering device for innovative techniques guitar. Also for handicapped players.

The Hammer Jammer was invented in the 90's, with about 2000 samples produced at that time which were never pushed into the mainstream guitar market for a number of reasons. However, Ken McCaw, inventor of the Hammer Jammer, who is also a film composer, used the Hammer Jammer on a trailer for a feature film released in Europe about five years ago. From that, interest for this unique invention began to grow around the world. The demonstration video in this Kickstarter program was posted on YouTube in January 2014, which went viral. It became obvious quickly that this unique invention is now ready for the guitar market. All Hammer Jammer samples were sold within a couple weeks, to players in 60 countries, many of them young guitarists beginning their careers. This Kickerstarter program is for the purpose of building new tools for the device, which will include some requested modifications which will provide additional instrument applications. It has also been learned recently that the Hammer Jammer provides a legitimate and highly useful device for handicapped persons, and players with arthritis and other issues which make finger picking and standard picking technique prohibitive.

Joe Marro: Transcendental Blue Demo Clip: Instrumental

Joe Marro
It's so important to demo your songs, you get a better feel for things. Now I know what I need to work on, take out, and add. I also have been thinking that maybe I need a full-time saxophone player...I know everyone has been jumping on the sax train, because of bands like Tesseract, Ever Forthright, etc...but I first heard sax in metal from Ihsahn and was so impressed. So much I want to do with this project!!!

This is about 80% of the song. I decided to go back through the demo and add a little lead. As you can hear, the intonation is a bit off but these demos are made for my vocalist. Enjoy this little tease.

Jason Becker: Check out my CD ‘Collection.’ from Shrapnel Records

Jason Becker
Check out my CD ‘Collection.’ from Shrapnel Records

You can get the CD or download here:

"Collection" not only contains some of Jason's favorite moments from his Shrapnel and David Lee Roth recordings, it also features three new Becker compositions, each as impressive as anything he has recorded in the past. Jason has enlisted some of the largest names in instrumental guitar music and has as many as three guitarists per track trading off riveting performances.Including performances by Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, Michael Lee Firkins, Marty Friedman and Greg Howe.  "Collection" is exactly the kind of record that Becker fans have been waiting for.
