Guthrie Govan: Volume 3 of Guthrie Govan's Odd Time Licks: 9/8

*New Release* - Volume 3 of Guthrie Govan's Odd Time Licks: 9/8
Download Link:

Hailed by many as one of the greatest players of all time, world-class guitarist Guthrie Govan (Official) returns to give you the gift of mastering odd time signatures once and for all. With 9/8 squarely in his sights, Guthrie gives you all the tools you need to play naturally over odd time signatures! By studying the videos and TAB you will not only learn how to play like Guthrie using his incredible techniques but also gain an insight into his elusive way of thinking!

Guthrie says 'The general theme continues as with the previous packages we did in this series, the general concept is to give you an idea about HOW to play in a bar of 9 or series of bars of 9, without getting scared, without getting bewildered and above all without getting lost!

The rhythmic feel of the backing track shouldn't be too challenging, if anything you'll probably find it a bit more laid back, relaxing and (dare I say it?) pleasant sounding than its two predecessors.

If there's one benefit that hopefully these licks will offer, it's developing your ability to improvise freely within this time signature confident that you're going to be able to meet beat one a bar from now, or four bars from now.

So I hope you have fun exploring some of these licks!'

On the technique side of the fence, by studying these licks you'll be learning and practising: legato, expressive sliding, tapping, alternate picking, vibrato, double-stops and all sorts of exciting bending and pedal tones! Guthrie seamlessly blends these techniques together and with a bit of practise (and equipped with the video/audio and TAB from this package) you can too!

For those of you excited about the theory and process behind these licks, you'll be learning how to creatively use: mixolydian scales, intervallic licks, bebop inspired chromatics, major pentatonic, tension building and resolution, rhythmic displacement and much more! You'll also be making use of the entire fretboard, adding bluesy ideas into your licks and gaining an insight into how Guthrie augments the harmonic content by superimposing chord extensions as arpeggios!

As ever, we have included everything you need to practise and perfect the material in this package. There are video and audio tracks for you to watch/listen and study, accurately transcribed TAB/notation for you to analyse and master as well as backing tracks for you to practise every lick to, and jam out your own solos! We've even included some text notes to help you really get these parts down!

Dave Kilminster: Live Rig With Steven Wilson, 2016

This was filmed during the 2015/16 'Hand. Cannot. Erase.' tour, firstly at The Royal Albert Hall in London (September 2015), secondly at The Colston Hall in Bristol (January 2016).

Dave takes us through his rig, explaining how he had upwards of 90 patch changes for the Albert Hall shows in order to cover the gamut of Steven's incredible material.

If you get the chance, please go and see Steven, Dave and the band live – it's a sonic and sensory experience that you'll never forget.

Christian Muenzner, Jimmy Pitts: Eternity's End sign to Prog Power label


Eternity's End signs with POWER PROG
Details of the upcoming album plus title track for streaming revealed!

POWER PROG is very proud to announce the signing of the brand new international Progressive Power Metal blast ETERNITY'S END. The first common goal of this cooperation is the worldwide release of their debut longplayer "The Fire Within" at March 25, 2016 as Audio-CD, download card, as digital download and as stream via all major platforms.

ETERNITY'S END is the realization of a vision that Christian Muenzner, well known in his capacity as guitarist extraordinaire, solo artist, special guest on many albums and as member of bands like Alkaloid, Necrophagist, Obscura and Paradox, had since many years of forming his very own band in order to return to the style of music that was his first love and, to this day, is his biggest passion ... Aggressive, neoclassical power metal with a progressive twist and with a powerful and classic metal vocalist! And at end of 2013, he set out to make this vision into reality and started to write on matching song material.

With bass player Linus Klausenitzer (Obscura, Alkaloid) and drummer Hannes Grossmann (Alkaloid, Blotted Science, solo, ex Necrophagist, ex Obscura), the rhythm section was quickly found and with virtuoso Jimmy Pitts (The Fractured Dimension, Spastic Ink), a blessed with talent keyboardist has been obliged. After checking out several different singers, the right man for this sophisticated act of defiance was found at the beginning of 2015 in Ian Parry, who is best known for his stunning work with Elegy, Ayeron, Consortium Project and who also has released a couple of solo albums. A high-profile band was complete and ready to strike!

"The Fire Within" was recorded between January and April 2015, co-produced, mixed and mastered by award winning producer Per Nilsson (also known in the whole metal scene as guitar player and producer of Swedish melodic death metal institution Scar Symmetry), who gave the disc the finishing touch. So what you may expect? A majestic and heavy power metal album, filled to the brim with heavy riffs, neo-classical chord progressions, gifted vocals, big choirs, guitar and keyboard solos at their best, big orchestrations and epic melodies. In short: A new star will rise on neo-classical progressive power metal's heaven! With this debut album, ETERNITY'S END will for sure have a lasting influence on a musical genre.

"The Fire Within" tracklist ...
01. The Fire Within
