Richard Hallebeek: Eelco Bastiaan van Zanten - Ghosts



A track I recorded with producer/songwriter/multi instrumentalist Eelco Bastiaan van Zanten. Eelco works closely with producer Bastian (De Jeugd Van Tegenwoordig, did a remix for the 2001 hit ‘You’ve got My Love’



and has also worked with Tjeerd Oosterhuis and rapper Brainpower.
The track is called ‘Ghosts’ and will be featured on Eelco’s solo album that will be out end of 2014. Very nice song with challenging but musical changes to solo over- well done Eelco!
Rich - guitars / Eelco - everything else

Lyrics:

Silence 'pon the other side
ghosts entering her mind
what she did not know just then was that they would come back
again, until (she says) oh tell me when cause i’m so scared

though the truth is hardly
half as heavy
as her self imaginated
these ghosts aren't even scary
when they are closely examined
so you would say why even bother
cause these are the ghosts of liberation
(watch them take of now)

Nita Strauss: Alice Cooper Sault Ste Marie, MI 2014 series



Asked how Nita got involved with Cooper, Strauss told GuitarWorld.com: "Kip Winger was the one who actually connected the dots. We met each other on the Monsters Of Rock cruise, where he saw me play. He later heard through the grapevine that Alice was looking for someone, so he sent them a few links and videos of me performing. I was then introduced to Shep Gordon [Cooper's manager] and Bob Ezrin [Cooper's producer] who sent me over a few tracks to learn and from there. Everything just seemed to fall into place. I'm so honored and excited to be a part of this project. It's hard to put into words."

Regarding what it was like when Nita first met Alice, Nita said: "I first met Alice in L.A. when he was recording some material for his new album. Ezrin called and asked me if I'd like to come down to the studio and meet him. So I went down and got to sit in the studio for Alice's recording session. He's such a cool guy. The whole experience was pretty incredible."

Asked if Nita feels added pressure being in a three-guitar band situation, Strauss said: "I come from a band that played IRON MAIDEN songs, so the multi-guitar-player thing isn't something that's really new to me. By the same token, these are iconic songs and I really want to make sure that I do them justice."

Nita Strauss: Alice Cooper Sault Ste Marie, MI 2014


Getting reviews from Australia too:
Alice Cooper’s new guitarist Nita Strauss made her on-stage debut with the band in Michigan on the weekend.

Strauss, who previously played in the all-female Iron Maiden tribute band The Iron Maidens, replaced Orianthi who had toured with Alice Cooper for the past few years.


And not only is she a brilliant guitarist, as you can see from the below vision, but she also happens to be very easy on the eyes

I have a few of Allans guitars at my house right now and let me tell you, they're awesome! If you go on my Facebook I've got a few pictures of some of them. There was a post about Allan's Yamaha guitar, here's a picture of the whole thing. The luthier's name is J. Gaudesi. The switch lights up the fret markers on the side of the neck. This also has the XS locking tremolo system with roller saddles. simply put, this guitar is awesome

Jason Becker, Peter Hodgson: Seymour Duncan Jason Becker Perpetual Burn Humbucker reviewed by I Heart Guitar

Seymour Duncan Jason Becker Perpetual Burn Humbucker -
I installed a Perpetual Burn in my Ibanez RG550 (a roadflare-red 20th Anniversary model). I kept the stock single coil pickup in the middle position for now, and added a Seymour Duncan SH-1n ’59 Model in the neck position. The first thing I noticed about the Perpetual Burn was how it seemed to embody much of what I love about the JB but with more dynamic sensitivity and less power in the low end. The mids aren’t as honky either, with more of an emphasis on upper mids rather than ‘middle mids.’ It’s perfect for hard rock and blues rock, but also ideally suited to my personal favourite metal tones – think the rich, woody tones of the JB on Megadeth’s ‘Youthanasia,’ but shifted a little towards Eddie Van Halen’s famous ‘Brown Sound.’ It’s easy to generate pinch harmonics, and palm-muted notes are well-defined and chunky. - See more at: http://iheartguitarblog.com/2014/06/review-seymour-duncan-jason-becker-perpetual-burn-humbucker.html#sthash.Vwf9jrWF.O937sZMa.dpuf
