Charly Sahona, Fabien Paraillac: The Fires of Passion - Sahona

Here's the first song of the new rock band SAHONA
Join us on Facebook:
Our first self titled album will be out on February 22nd

This band is actually my new project, Hope you'll enjoy it :-)

Sahona’s melodic rock music is characterized by its blend of metal, progressive and electro, where two guitar virtuosos are exchanging solos and uniting on heavy riffs, over a very efficient bass and drums section. Settled down on mysterious , spacy, powerful, torn and passionate climates , the melodic vocal parts are evolving, with lyrics that deal with introspective themes, such as spirituality, psychology, frustrations and turbulences of love.

Sahona are:

Cédric Artaxet : Bass
Stéphane Cavanez : Drums
Fabien Paraillac: Guitars
Charly Sahona: Guitars, Vocals, Keyboards

Mixed by Fabien Paraillac for Ireal Studio

Mastered by Brett Caldas-Lima at Tower Studio

Artwork by Gustavo Sazes

Tommaso Zillio: A New Take On The Octave Pattern When Learning The Guitar Fretboard

When you first started to learn how to play guitar, you were probably taught the “octave pattern.” This simple pattern lets a player find the same notes separated by one octave — if you’ve never heard of this before, go straight to the video below for more details.

It’s very possible that you were taught the octave pattern to help learn the location of different notes on a guitar fretboard. Many people will say that players only need to know the notes on the 5th and 6th strings, and can find the rest by using the pattern. I was taught this way as well, but it wasn’t long before I realized that it wasn’t the best way.

It didn’t take long before I realized this because I was never actually successful with it. I originally thought it was just me, but when my students weren’t able to use it either, I knew it just wasn’t the best system for that kind of learning.

The reason why it’s not a good solution to learning the fretboard is because it has too many steps: first you have to find a note on the 5th of 6th string, then use the octave pattern for the 3rd or 4th string, and then once more for the 1st or 2nd. Ultimately, this process takes too long to use successfully when performing. At the same time, the amount of steps needed are not necessary: I have posted a previous video that shows a much simpler method of learning the fretboard that will be permanent for the user.

So how can we use the octave pattern in real life? Like every interval pattern, there are many ways to use this. However, instead of going into detail on them, I have made a video that shows one simple, usable example for the octave pattern when playing lead guitar. I’ve seen this used by many great guitar players, (I’m certain that you have heard this as well) and I know that you will be able to use this in your own guitar solos.

As demonstrated, it’s quick and easy to apply this method to your own guitar playing. There are limitless possibilities in creative soloing, along with rhythm playing. Try it out, and have some fun with it - if you’ve done something original, record it and send me a copy; I would love to hear what you come up with.

Tom Hess: Five Incomplete Questions Guitar Players Often Ask And What You SHOULD Be Asking Instead To Become An Amazing Guitar Player

Five Incomplete Questions Guitar Players Often Ask And What You SHOULD Be Asking Instead To Become An Amazing Guitar Player
By Tom Hess
Tons of guitarists ask all the wrong questions when trying to make faster progress in their playing. These questions all are built on misconceptions and misinformed ideas that are commonly accepted as “correct” among mediocre players. If you ask yourself these same questions, you will struggle massively to make any progress at all.

These are five common examples of incomplete questions I see guitar players asking and what you should be asking instead to massively speed up your own progress on guitar:

Common Guitar Playing Question #1: How Do I Play Guitar Faster?

Guitar speed will only come to you once you’ve learned and mastered many techniques that are fundamental to fast playing. Gaining speed will be extremely hard unless you master them.
The entire question you should be asking yourself is: “Which elements of my guitar technique are keeping me from building speed and how do I master these elements to make my playing fluid and seamless?” Here is a tip: simply moving your hands faster is almost always not the answer for how to gain guitar speed.

Many guitar players use way too much tension in their playing. This is an example of a flaw in technique that holds them back. See the video below where I guide one of my students through the process of identifying and getting rid of extra tension so he can play guitar faster:

To discover all the other factors that go into building guitar speed, download this resource about learning to shred on guitar.

Common Guitar Playing Question #2: Where Can I Find Neat Guitar Licks To Add Into My Guitar Solos?

There is a false conclusion rooted in the foundation of this question, and it is that playing good guitar solos requires simply using the right notes of licks. Truth is, you can play awesome guitar licks and solo ideas just by knowing how to play any licks/ideas you are already familiar with in much more expressive ways. Improve your guitar phrasing and you will always have tons of options when it comes to creating interesting guitar solo ideas.


Here’s a couple ways to do this:
1. Make up a small guitar lick and practice transforming it into 12 or so guitar phrasing variations. To really get as much emotion as possible out of every note choice, utilize guitar techniques such as vibrato, bending or legato to intensify specific notes in every variation.

2. Try to play highly memorable solos by thinking like a singer. This can be done by improvising a slow vocal-like melody and putting bursts of fast notes in between to connect each melody to a new one.

Find out how to start doing this for yourself by downloading this free resource on how to play emotional guitar licks and solos.

Incomplete Guitar Playing Question #3: How Do I Get Over Stage Fright?
Stage fright is a symptom of a deeper, but very preventable problem: you are not practicing enough for playing in live situations outside of your bedroom. Once you practice becoming consistent in any live situation, your stage fright will begin to disappear.

Check out this article about practicing guitar for playing live to see how you can develop your live stage skills without feeling nervous.

Incomplete Guitar Playing Question #4: How Do I Get Motivated To Practice Guitar More So I Can Become A Great Guitarist?

Know that lacking motivation for guitar practice is a symptom, and sign of a greater issue. The issue in this case is that you aren’t getting much results from your guitar practice. To solve this core issue, you’ll need to practice guitar more efficiently. Once you can observe and track your guitar playing progress, you will become infinitely more motivated.
Here are a couple of approaches you can use to become more motivated by making your practice a lot more effective:

1. Only use the most effective guitar practice schedule. This way you will make much faster progress, even if you only have a little bit of time to practice each day.

2. Frequently track every single area of your guitar playing progress. Once you understand which elements of your guitar playing are keeping you from moving forward, you can quickly change your practice to speed up your musical progress.

Incomplete Guitar Playing Question #5: How Long Will It Take To Achieve _______ (Insert Specific Musical Goal Here)?

There are two key problems with this question:

Problem #1: You can’t really answer this question. Why? Guitarists will always progress at different rates. This applies even if they start with the same skills, knowledge, tools, materials and level of support for accomplishing their goal. You could study with the best guitar teacher alive, but 50% of your progress would come from your teacher and 50% through your own dedication, work ethic and desire.

Problem #2: This is an extremely hazardous question to be asking yourself. Thinking too much about the time you will need to accomplish a goal takes your focus off of thework you must take to actually reach that goal.
This what you should do to achieve all your musical goals as fast as possible:

1. Don’t waste your time trying to learn guitar alone. You will make much faster progress by finding a great guitar teacher who understand how to create a strategy that YOU can easily follow to reach your musical goals. By focusing intensely (and only) on what is needed to reach your goals, you will become better at guitar in much less time. But don’t study with just any guitar teacher – search for one who has a solid reputation of helping guitar players just like you.

2. Make sure you do exactly what your teacher tells you to do, then do it consistently for a long period of time and you WILL see great results. Give everything you’ve got to this process and don’t allow yourself to become distracted by things that don’t really matter.
By doing both of these things, you will achieve your musical goals in the least amount of time possible.

25 years ago today, Voyager took the famous Pale Blue Dot photograph...

The Pale Blue Dot is a photograph of planet Earth taken in 1990 by Voyager I from a distance of about 3.7 billion miles. At the urging of Dr Carl Sagan, Ground Control issued a command that directed the distant space craft to turn around and, looking back, to take photos of each of the planets it had visited. From Voyager's vast distance, the Earth was captured as a infinitesimal point of light, actually smaller than a single pixel of the photo. The image was taken with a narrow angle camera lens, with the Sun quite close to the field of view. Quite by accident, the Earth was captured in one of the scattered light rays caused by taking the image at an angle so close to the Sun.

Marcelo Donoso: Maketeando snippet performance playthrough of new song and more

Marcelo Donoso

Marcelo Donoso is a guitarist who claims he composes for 'mental need'. He was born in 1985 in Santiago, the capital of Chile, in a family away from music but who supported him in his devotion to the guitar from a very young age. His adolescence was spent locked up playing songs from Metallica, Megadeth, Dream Theater, Steve Vai, Alejandro Silva, and it is to these guys that he owes his musical language.

Marcelo is only the 4th customer that has emailed in with links to his work and then made it onto the very sought after JTC artist roster. As soon as we watched the first few minutes of his now debut jam track package 'Sickness' we instantly new he would play a big role in the future of the site. He has an incredble talent to create compositions that display a sense of real originality, which are impressive to watch and get stuck in your mind. The sign of a great artist.

We are extremely excited about continuing to release lots more content from Marcelo over the coming watch this space!

20 Fresh Modern Dorian Licks

Master the Dorian mode with these 20 fresh and inspiring new melodic ideas from Marcelo Donoso! The Dorian scale is one of the most widely used modes and plays an integral part in many styles from Fusion, Rock, Pop and Latin all the way to Jazz.

As we are dealing with a type of minor scale (due of the presence of the minor 3rd and flat 7th), Marcelo demonstrates perfectly how you can blend the trademark sounds and textures of the Dorian mode with other classic minor sounds such as the Minor Pentatonic and Blues scales.

Inside these licks you will find everything from economy and alternate picking, wide interval ideas, string skipping phrases, 3, 4 and 5 note patterns, creative slides, three note per string ideas, pentatonic substitutions and plenty of modern phrasing ideas. These licks are also a great way to break free of your standard box patterns and learn how to use the whole neck effectively.

So pick up this fantastic Dorian themed licks pack to help you really master the Dorian mode and exactly how to use it effectively, in context. At 9.99(GPB) you're all for learning 20 awesome new licks for a bargain of a price!

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 (both in fast and slow formats), accurately transcribed TAB/notation for you to analyse and master as well as backing tracks at two speeds 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!
