Sam Coulson: Burning Pentatonics Lesson 1

Part 1 of a lesson series on fast runs within the minor pentatonic scale.

This lesson focuses on alternate picking descending 12s through all 5 positions.

I'm focusing as much as possible on a one finger per fret technique.

I'm running a pretty clean rig to focus on good technique. I used my Fender American Special Strat, equipped with Texas Specials into a Fender Deluxe amplifier. I used a tiny amount of drive from an MXR pedal. I also used a subtle amount of chorus.

I hope you enjoy the lesson! Hit that like button for more like this.

Jens Johansson, Matias Kupiainen: Stratovarius set to release their long awaited “Best Of” album on May 6th on earMUSIC.

Stratovarius, one of the most influential, successful and enduring power metal bands in the world, release their long awaited “Best Of” album on May 6th on earMUSIC.

It happens rarely nowadays, especially in metal, that a band creates one magic song after the other. Stratovarius are surely one of the few exceptions, now presenting 29 hits and fan favorites (and there could have been more!) on their long awaited “Best Of” album, which is going to be released as 2CD Standard Edition, 3CD Limited Edition and Download.

Both CD editions are released in a high quality packaging with liner notes written by exceptional keyboardist Jens Johansson and rare picture material from the band’s private archive. The Limited edition also includes the exclusive 60 minute bonus CD “Live At Wacken 2015”.
As a special treat, the “Best Of” features the brand new song “Until The End Of Days” from the current band line up consisting of Timo Kotipelto, Jens Johansson, Matias Kupainen, Lauri Porra and Rolf Pilve.

All hand-picked by the band and adding up to 2 ½ hours of pure Stratovarius bliss, the songs give metal fans and those to be, a great selection of the band’s impressive work, including classics such as “Black Diamond”, “Hunting High And Low” and “Speed Of Light” as well as more recent material such as the most streamed song in the band’s history “Unbreakable” and “Shine In The Dark” from their recent studio album “Eternal”.
All songs are remastered by the band’s long-time companion Mika Jussila of Finnvox Studios.

Jens Johansson explains: “It's been 20 years since the Episode album, we're all getting older but this stuff sounds as fresh as ever. Could it be that Stratovarius has discovered the fountain of Eternal Youth!? You may feel younger, but we can't actually (legally) promise you'll be younger after listening to this best-of album, but we can guarantee one thing: when you put it through your speakers, it will play Until the End of Days!!

To me it's a testament to the fact that paying attention to songwriting and production was expensive, but so worth it. The songs, the sound and the performances really have stood the test of time.”

Timo Kotipelto adds: “Wow! 20 years in Stratovarius have passed at the speed of light! I still remember when I joined the band and was happy to do some power metal. And I am very happy to still be able to do it after all these years! This collection of songs is an excellent selections and a cool way to remember the history of the band from the past to the present! I hope you will enjoy it as much as we did while selecting the songs. Rock the Metal!”

All Stratovarius albums will be re-released throughout 2016 and 2017, including extensive booklets and a lot of bonus material.
