Chris Feener: monster guitarist is back with Qyn (pronounced cain)

Hey guys, Chris here. I just wanted to do a little introductory video for a project that's been in the works for quite a few years now entitled "qyn".

Myself and my vocalist friend and writing partner Johnny Ennis have been writing material off and on for quite some time, and the stars have aligned as it were as we're both currently living in the same town again, with the same musical goals. We've been producing some pretty killer tunes that we're quite proud of, as well as resurrecting and reinvigorating old material that some of you may have already heard.

We're about half way through the writing stage and the music just keeps gettin' heavier and more rockin' so, we're stoked. We have a bunch of killer musicians on board when it comes time to track and our goal is to bring it to life in a live setting as soon as the album is relased, and the tentative date for that is fall 2016.

So, like our page as we'll be posting all kinds of footage from tracking, pre-production, just being total jackasses, and all that good stuff.

Share our page, spread the word. We're a metal band from Grand Falls-Windsor, Newfoundland, and I don't know if there's any other metal bands from Grand Falls-Windsor, Newfoundland so... You may as well check it out...

Walter Trout: announces new release Alive In Amsterdam!

Walter Trout announces new release, ‘ALIVE in Amsterdam’, recorded live in Amsterdam.

Order your copy:

To be released June 17th on Mascot/Provogue, ‘ALIVE in Amsterdam’ is the sound of a man announcing his resurrection after a period on the ropes. As Trout’s army of international fans are painfully aware, recent times have taken the bandleader to the brink, following a bleak diagnosis of life-threatening liver failure and hepatitis C in 2013. Trout’s rebirth began with a successful transplant in May 2014, and gathered pace with 2015’s ‘Battle Scars’: the acclaimed studio album that channeled his near-death experience into raw autobiographical songs.

News: PRS Private Stock April Guitar of the Month Model Takes Flight - just WOW!

PRS Private Stock April Guitar of the Month Model Takes Flight

Guitar Manufacturer announces the Limited Edition DGT “Birds of a Feather” Semi Hollow Electric Guitar

(STEVENSVILLE, MD) April 6, 2016 – PRS Guitars is celebrating the 20th Anniversary of Private Stock with a revival of the program that started it all: Guitars of the Month. Each month in 2016, the Private Stock team will be offering a unique design in limited numbers that will highlight the fine
craftsmanship and remarkable playability that the Private Stock team is known for while utilizing some of the most deluxe materials available. For April, PRS is releasing the DGT “Birds of a Feather” Semi Hollow model; a vintage-appointed guitar that is all about the details. Based on the original McCarty model, the DGT (David Grissom Trem) adds a signature neck shape, taller frets that sport larger gauge strings, custom-spec’d pickups, and a unique control configuration. Only twenty of these instruments will be made for April 2016.

The DGT neck shape is based on two of Grissom’s favorite PRS guitars and comes in between a Pattern/Wide Fat and a Pattern Regular/Regular. The frets and 11-gauge strings, combined with other appointments (thicker back, and 22-fret neck), give the DGT a beefy tone. The pickups were finalized after a year of A/B-ing more than forty variations. The resulting tone has ample depth without losing any openness. The control layout features two volume controls and a push-pull coil-split tone control, providing tons of versatility and control.

The original Guitars of the Month were cased between December 1994 and March 1996. They provided the opportunity to experiment with new ideas and led directly to the creation of the Private Stock program, with the first “official” Private Stock instrument casing on April 19, 1996.

“Innovation, and specialized craftsmanship continues to be at the heart of the Private Stock program, and we are very excited to release some new ideas celebrating our 20th Anniversary,” said Paul Reed Smith, PRS Guitars founder. “The DGT Birds of a Feather, takes the time proven features from our signature David Grissom model and brings it to Private Stock’s Guitar of the Month program, and all the enhanced detail work add up to be a special take on a very iconic PRS model.”

Specifications include: Ziricote top with curly maple binding, African ribbon mahogany back and backplates, semi-hollow body, single f-hole with maple binding, mahogany neck with DGT profile, ziricote fingerboard with curly maple purfling and mother of pearl sidedots, ziricote and maple “Birds of a Feather” inlays, curly maple headstock veneer with curly maple purfling, Ziricote “Birds of a Feather” Private Stock eagle with a mother of pearl “April” engraved “new” banner, Natural satin nitro finish, Gen III tremolo with locking saddles, Phase III locking tuners with ebony buttons, 11 gauge strings with an unwound G. Electronics include: DGT treble and bass pickups with two volume and one push/pull tone control with 3-way toggle. The DGT “Birds of a Feather” Semi Hollow comes in a Private Stock 20th Anniversary tweed tolex case.
