Michael Casswell: Complaints about the noise - the new album

Michael Casswell: Complaints about the noise

By Michael Casswell

UK session guitarist and Lick Library contributor Michael Casswell has released his solo blues/fusion instrumental guitar album 'Complaints about the Noise'. The album is a blend of huge technical ability, taste, with a high level of composition and arrangement . This 10 track CD demonstrates the many sides to Mikes playing as well as taking the instrument to the limits of what seems possible on a guitar.

Jay Parmar: ESP George Lynch Mr Scary Contest

Hey peeps,
My very good friend Tony Fuentes messaged me a couple of weeks ago and said that I had to do this competition! Haha! And he was right! A cover of George Lynch's Mr Scary - too tempting to resist! I've played this song so many times and love playing it every time. I wanted to make this one different so have added in lots of variations - See if you can spot the various Lynch Lycks that I included ;) Many, many thanks to Tony for the heads up :) You're a star my friend.
Just to let you know, the video was one take - audio was recorded at the same time to Cubase via my Line 6 DT25 (Soldano setting) using a Golden Age R1 Active ribbon mid and a Red 5 Audio RVD30 dynamic - then the audio was simply dropped into Final Cut Pro and synched with the camera audio :)

Thank you all.


Disco Metal-Symphony opus 60

Panos A Arvanitis Rituale Romanum.Inspired by the sad story of Anneliese Michel,a German woman who underwent Catholic exorcism rites in 1975 and died the next year, due to lack of medical care. Later investigation determined that she was malnourished and dehydrated; her parents and the priests responsible were charged with negligent homicide. The case attracted media and public attention because of the Catholic Church's unusual decision to employ the 400-year-old ritual of exorcism, something that had been rarely seen since the 18th Century. The film The Exorcism of Emily Rose is loosely based on her story.

Marco Sfogli: to support Elina Laivera

Elina Laivera Official8 hours agoIt is with great joy and honor that we announce the magical guitar power of MARCO SFOGLI in our team!

Guitar player, composer and arranger, Marco needs normally no further introduction but for those of you who might not know, Marco has also been lending his sensational guitar sounds to James LaBrie (being also member of his solo band) and Jordan Rudess (Dream Theater), Alex Argento, Virgil Donati, LALU and more!

''Being a James LaBrie fan myself, I listened to Marco's playing for the first time on the album ''Elements Of Persuasion'' and I was blown away. I could never imagine that years later, I would meet Marco in Frankfurt, Germany at the legendary Musikmesse in March 2014. I watched his performance at the DV MARK booth with my producer Viv Lalu by my side and I told him right away ''I want to have him on my album! Such musicality and power! That's it!'', states Elina.

Nick Barrett: Pendragon - Men Who Climb Mountains Tour 2014

Almost at the summit

We are very almost at the summit and it's not long now until Men Who Climb Mountains will be unleashed and the wait will finally be over.

All pre-ordered copies will be signed by Nick and dispatched on Monday 6th October, if you've not ordered yours yet you can do so here. You can read Nick's latest blog too which will give you an idea of what we've been up to and what's in store for the album and tour dates coming up.

Some of the venues are getting very close to sold out on the tour, if you're planning on travelling to a show it's a good idea to book your tickets in advance to avoid being left out in the cold, all the dates and tickets links are below.

We've teamed up with CD Baby for digital downloads. So far we've added The Jewel - remastered edition, Live in Krakow -1996 and Utrecht... the Final Frontier. These live albums have been out of stock for years now, so it's a great opportunity to pick up a copy via download. We hope to add some more of these more obscure albums later in the year.

We will be releasing Men Who Climb Mountains as digital download via CD Baby on October 10th, so if you're no longer a fan of discs and booklets or hate waiting for the postman you can buy the new album via download before the start of the tour. (The digital version will NOT include "Live at Twig's - the acoustic live album)

There is only a week and a bit to go before MegaDaze now, we all very much look forward to seeing some of you there, and then it'll be tour time!

See you very soon,

Heavy Metal Ninjas: Richie Allan Lesson – Interstellar Abduction

[Richie's Ibanez RGD-7 string guitar is in Standard tuning: B E A D G B E, and his Strat-type custom guitar is in Drop-B tuning: B F# B E G# C#.] In this lesson, Richie Allan breaks down several sections from the title track of the Heavy Metal Ninjas album, Interstellar Abduction: Introduction (0:09 – 0:39) The intro to ‘Interstellar Abduction’ consists of clean guitar chords, paired with an interesting multi-delay effect, which plays back each echo two octaves higher and in reverse. The part starts out with a C power chord with a doubled fifth, which establishes the key of the progression

Derryl Gabel: GPS - Guitar Fretboard Positioning System

Guitar Fretboard Positioning System
 In this one hour video I show you a systematic approach for memorizing the notes on the fretboard. This is a time tested, proven method that I have used with my students. This is a new and improved method that I use to call Note Recognition which was shown on my FIT video. Most everyone that I have shown this new method to, once mastered, is able to instantly know the notes on the guitar without even looking at the fretboard. I've found that most new students master a string within 15 minutes or less! If you are serious about becoming a better musician and guitarist this DVD is for you. It doesn't matter what style you play. Knowing the notes instantly will make you exponentially better on your instrument. Let me show you how! As an added bonus I have included a live in studio performance which includes the transcription.
Look folks, this is not just for beginner / intermediate players. If you have chops but you're constantly getting lost when playing through changes because you don't know the notes, this is for you.
If you are a teacher and your looking for a methodical, systematic approach that will quickly help your students memorize the notes, this is for you.  
I will be putting out a series of DVDs in the near future and in order to use the material to it's fullest potential you must have this down.  This will set the foundation.   Think about this, if I were to show you a system of how to master all 12 keys on the guitar in any position how would you be able to do it if you don't know the notes first?
