PJ d'Atri: the result of jamming for hours

Working on new music again. This is a new song of mine for the upcoming album "Speed Issues" and this is how it's done: Jamming for hours over the song as a backing, looking for melodies and harmonies. Bad audio quality is intended, since you are supposed to buy the album in the end... :-)
Now, enjoy some serious ROCK guitar!

Me jamming on guitar

2 takes, 1 improvisation, 1 song, lots of fun... :D
Enjoy! Sorry for the mistakes...

Marco Sfogli: Still Hurts - DV Mark NAMM 2014

Marco Sfogli was born in 1980, his first attempt with music came in 1984 when he played with his parents (both musicians) in Schwetzingen, Germany during an encore. But the story starts in 1989 when he received his first electric guitar as a gift: "a Washburn but I don't remember the model". He started to play along with his heroes (Michael Jackson, Van Halen, Europe), while other kids his age usually preferred to play soccer. In 1992 he left the guitar to study the drums, another huge passion. "Being a drummer first and a guitarist second, helped me a lot in terms of creativity and rhythmic knowledge." In 1996 he left the drums because of his growing interest in guitar, especially after an intense listening of Images and Words by Dream Theater. Today, he's a guitar player, a composer and an arranger. He worked for a lot of artists since. In 2005 he flew to Canada to record James LaBrie's third solo release titled Elements of Persuasion which has become a hit with progressive metal fans. Now member of the James LaBrie band, he put out his first solo record titled There's Hope on Feb. 15th 2008 through Lion Music. In 2010 he also worked on the James LaBrie record Static Impulse as guitar player, co-writer and engineer. He released his second solo in 2012, titled reMarcoble and edited by JTC Records. In 2013 he joined the James LaBrie's band for the third time for the registration of Impermanent Resonance.

Felix Martin: 14 strings ambidextrous guitar - Seymour Duncan NAMM 2014

Felix Martin, an ambidextrous, Venezuelan-born guitarist who moved to America after winning a scholarship to attend the prestigious Berklee School of Music.

Felix is pushing music into new boundaries by mixing Metal with different styles such as Jazz, Progressive, World, Latin, Fusion, etc. Although his style is mostly called Progressive Metal, he is often catalogued as Jazz Metal, as he sometimes writes straight ahead Jazz mixed with Metal.

Felix uses his self-designed 14-string guitars, which are two regular guitars in one, standard guitar. Felix created a completely new way of playing the electric guitar by performing simultaneously with two of them as if was one guitar. This opens up a new and hidden world of the electric guitar.

Felix pioneered this style of playing at the age of 13, and as of 2014, he remains the only one in the world who plays this way.

About Caligula

In composing this track, my idea was to give an effect of power and extravagance, hence the title. The obsessive pedal point is balanced by the harmonic progression, and is developed by the strings. From a formal point of view, it is an attempt to bring a sonata form into the rock idiom. After the exposition of the two central themes, the development involves fragments taken from the elaborate initial themes, first given to the solo violin, and then transposed into harmonic digressions from the very low register by fugato proceedings. The second half is given to the guitar solo. The recapitulation of the main riff, this time accompanied by a march figure in the snare drum, evokes Roman warriors, guided by their tyrannical emperor.


"Non Temperato" is a joining of the electric guitar and a classical orchestral ensemble. It is a hybrid of European-derived harmonies and the distorted sound of American rock music. It is a blend of elements explored in a unique and systematic way. Sound, composition, and imagination create a world of colors for getting lost in the listening.
