Kevin Heiderich: G# Major b7/Dominant Lick with TAB

Here's a lick I came up with some time ago. Just transposed it to another key and changed some phrases. It's basically just a G# Major b7 chord with some tapping (with middle and ring finger), legatos and a short sweep at the beginning.
The first 3 bars are one big phrase and the last bar is just some legatos to get back to the root on the 6th string.

Here's the tab:

G# Major b7/Dominant Lick (incl. Tab)

Here's the first part of the solo section of Polyphia's "Aviator". Full solo will be recorded soon, this section is the hardest part of it though. There's one really fast alternate picking run at the end that's also quite bitchy. I'm currently busy with other stuff, that's not music, so that's why I'm taking so long with videos right now.

Marcelo Donoso: Cruz & Souper duo - VII Guitar Festival to Puerto 2016

I was fortunate to live to mount a small piece of music that I compose for the documentary "Stories of Chilean Soldiers in Haiti" with two large national guitarists. Without trial beyond a previous review which teach them their parts .... Infinite thanks Souper Lorena and Marcelo Donoso for his disposition and quality!

Jeff Martin, Stu Marshall: Blasted To Static - is a new band from the US featuring Jeff Martin singing legend from RACER X

BLASTED TO STATIC is a new band from the US with some really established musicians. Headed up by the incendiary vocals of JEFF MARTIN, who has his fame from 9 great records with the US Metal legend RACER X and influencing an entire genre of guitar players, Jeff continues to display his incredible vocal range with BLASTED TO STATIC. He also worked as a musician for MSG, UFO and BADLANDS. Joined by Australian fret-melting guitar wizard STU MARSHALL (DEATH DEALER, DUNGEON, EMPIRES OF EDEN), which influenced an entire genre of guitar players, their goal was to bring back the high octane vocals combined with riffing mayhem and outstanding guitar shredding! The rhythmic talents of bassist REV JONES (STEELHEART, MICHAEL SCHENKER, LESLIE WEST) and Australian session demigod CLAY T. on drums play it very hard to add an incredible groove. BLASTED TO STATIC represents an uncompromising and intense odyssey from veterans of the metal scene. But for all the high-octane, hook-laden riffing mayhem, the band’s versatility also encompasses acoustic elements and more subtle, understated interludes. “We’re embracing an organic approach with this band,” says guitarist Stu Marshall. “Don’t expect music from a single genre – BLASTED TO STATIC is all about full artistic freedom, so you might even hear echoes of Black Sabbath or Queen.” More explosive than a hailstorm of hand grenades, they deliver a cutting-edge offering that is both refreshingly new, and re-imagines the hallmarks of 80’s guitar histrionics as a sonic hurricane that will blow the roof off.

Martin Miller, Anton Davidyants, Gary Husband, Ray Russell. Rob van Bavel & Frans Vollink

During the whole process of making this album, I've tried to do things a little bit different compared to my previous releases.
I've done quite a few and every project has been quite a long term adventure, coming across so many problems, delays, set-backs and all other issues you can think of. That's all rather normal and 'no biggy' because it is part of the game.

But just as a personal statement, I set a goal for myself a few months ago to decide on a deadline and without looking back, doing the impossible. 1st of May 2016, no matter what… and without rushing just to finish a tune. I feel I gave it my very best, and I'm actually really proud of how it turned out!

I was brought up listening to albums (vinyl and cassette tapes at the time), in a time where artists and bands didn't release 15-track records, due to the available space on the LP, I guess. But I enjoyed those a lot. Having tunes on there where you could kind of feel they had to choose the best ones. In this case, there are loads more compositions on my laptop. Because of the deadline, it was important to pick out the ones that were gonna work out the way they were meant to be.
But I did not do that alone. The contributions by Anton Davidyants, Martin Miller, Ray Russell and Gary Husband have been so helpful, inspiring, amazing and meaningful for the project! Can't thank them enough!

The title "Spirit vs. Origin" was inspired by this amazing new microphone company called Aston. They sent me a few mics before I got started with this project. I got blown away by the sound and many of the tracks on the album actually emerged out of experiments with the 2 models. I would make a loop out of recording the weirdest things and one thing would lead to another every time.

I sincerely hope you will appreciate my efforts and, well, meet you at the next deadline?


Big thanks to Hoshino Benelux (Jeroen Bakx), Sonic Distributions (James Young), Tama drums, Evans drumheads, Promark Sticks, Zildjian, Focusrite, my loving family, Rania Mebarki, Peter Huppertz, Helge Rudolph, Steve Lukather and the Tristan-brothers & sister of course.

Dedicated to my most wonderful two sons Caspar Tristan & Lewis.

- Square to Check’s new E.P “Stir Fry” is a breath of fresh air that puts musicality and melody before flash and fireworks. Highly recommended! "-progressive music planet

- It goes without saying that this is top-rate stuff needing to break out of the EP world and into a label like MoonJune, perhaps Music For Nations.
imprint purveying intelligence, class, and cool-ass bravado.

Square To Check is a young progfusion power trio presently taking the EP route in the game but supplementing their short discs with videos that tip in in-the-moment dynamism visually augmenting already highly sterling work. The latest such exposition is a look-see for "Spaghetti Champions"an amusing scenario juxtaposing all the fret-and-skinswork shenanigans As you'll see and hear, the combo's metier is upbeat speedy snazzy jazzy fusion most frequently in rock tempo loaded to the high water mark with chops, complexity, and high spirited intensities crossed between scholasticism and trash-the-textbooks explorations. Should readers be familiar with music history over the last half century, and I know a bunch of ya are, you'll hear elements of Minimum Vital, Durutti Column, Isotope, even a little Flash, backchecked Holdsworth, tons of the Euro 70s vanguard, and so on, fingers and drumsticks flying, mucho added keyboards in places, heady fare and then some.
