Bryan Baker: Vesser album is on the way, ready for a summer release

Bryan Baker

This is coming soon.
Bryan Baker Laurie, yeah it took a little re-directing, as we/I were noticing too many people using 7 strings and, not wanting to be a part of any trend, we had some re-writes to do. But, the new music is more intense, tighter, and more intricate than the original stuff, while being a bit more "vintage", if you will. The first single and video should be released before the end of the summer, with the whole album soon after.

Adrian Galysh: set to Release New Blues-Rock Album in May 2016

Guitarist Adrian Galysh to Release New Blues-Rock Album Into The Blue on May 25, 2016

Los Angeles - April 18, 2016 – Renowned guitarist Adrian Galysh will release his fifth solo album Into The Blue on May 25, 2016, featuring nine blues-rock tracks with guitar and vocals that take the West Coast guitarist into an entirely new musical direction.

Produced and recorded by Galysh in Los Angeles, Into The Blue draws heavily on the guitarist’s ‘70s-era influences. Galysh shares vocal duties with powerhouse vocalist Kacee Clanton, known for her soulful work with Joe Cocker, Luis Miguel, Beth Hart, and Janis Joplin’s band, Big Bother and The Holding Company.

And while Into The Blue is an all-vocal blues-rock affair, fans of Galysh’s guitar-
centric style will enjoy this very guitar-driven record. The album also features special guest performances by studio session ace Carl Verheyen (Supertramp), who plays on Galysh’s energetic version of the Junior Wells classic “Messin’ With The Kid,” and chicken picker Johnny Hiland, who takes a string- and mind-bending guest solo on Bobby Blue Bland’s “Further On Up The Road.”

The album’s rhythm section is rounded out by the stellar and authentic blues talents of drummer Joey Heredia (Stevie Wonder, Tribal Tech), and bassist Paul Loranger (Eric Sardinas).

“Playing blues guitar needs to be a concise statement, and requires simple, good tone,” said Galysh. “Into The Blue offers just that – blues-inspired songs that are straightforward in their arrangement, sound, and instrumentation. I didn’t want to waste a single phrase, and wanted to ensure that every solo reflects the song’s feel and intent.”

Praised by artists like Jennifer Batten and outlets like Power Play Magazine, Galysh has a successful trajectory spanning four previous solo albums and numerous collaborations and performances with industry giants like Uli Jon Roth, Yngwie Malmsteen, Robben Ford, Mike Keneally, George Lynch, Warren DeMartini, and many more.

Into The Blue will be available on May 25, 2016 via iTunes,,, and

Tommaso Zillio: Leaving The CAGED Guitar Theory Behind

Leaving The CAGED Guitar Theory Behind
Part 1: Using The Right Hand
Tommaso Zillio

"The key of performance is elegance, not battalions of special cases" (Jon Bentley and Doug McIlroy)

Are you the type of person who has tried the CAGED method of learning to use a guitar’s fretboard, but hasn’t found it to be useful? Did you read about the methodology and run the other way? Or do you like to work with everything to see what’s right for you?

It doesn’t matter what you use to learn a guitar fretboard, you have certainly seen, or maybe even taken part in the debate over whether or not the CAGED system works. Works of epic proportions have popped up on blog after magazine, after blog — people have sacrificed lovers, brothers, and haters alike to the debate, which would be cool if this were a Lord Of The Rings spinoff rather than a simple debate over guitar theory :-)

“Is the method of learning really all that fundamental?” people have asked, “Can’t we all just get along?” The fact is that it really does matter: as a music teacher, I’ve witnessed just how important it is to learn the fretboard the right way, given the sheer amount of hours spent by players working to use it fluidly.

If you’re aware of this debate, you’ve likely noticed how hard it is to follow based on a number of factors, such as:
  1. Some of the debaters use ad hominem (or, personal) attacks instead of getting to the point, which don’t really make for a good argument.
  2. The debate happens over different media and in different places (Facebook, YouTube, etc..), and many different issues are discussed at the same time
  3. The most pertinent issue, however, is that the majority of people in the debate just state their positions, without having any argument to back up their points (or even without making their point clear!)
Disclosure: I truly believe that believes the CAGED method simply does not work — which, based on the title, or my past articles, might be the reason why you’re here — and so I thought about developing something to show why that is. This is the first video of a series about the issues the CAGED system presents. Each video will dispute ONLY one, simple issue instead of working on a long, incomprehensible litany of grievances.

In this first video, I will show how the CAGED system is often inconsistent. Take a look at the video below to get an idea of what I mean.

The CAGED system only results in the learner having to work harder, learning past concepts over and over to get the same result as other methods in terms of working knowledge, speed, and skill.

Johnny Winter: Dean Zelinsky - The Johnny Winter Signature Model Guitar

The Johnny Winter Signature Model Guitar:

The First 25 Signature Guitars will be hand signed and numbered by Dean Zelinsky and come with a Certificate of Authenticity signed by Zelinsky and Johnny Winter’s wife, Susan Winter, for the Johnny Winter Estate.
“I am excited to be building Johnny’s Signature Guitars,” stated Zelinsky. “Johnny had been my guitar-playing idol since I was a kid, and was clearly one of the greatest players of all time.”
Zelinsky went on to say, “While I had met Johnny briefly many years ago, I first started building guitars for him after a chance meeting in a club parking lot in 2011. I had been designing thin guitars for a few years and knew this ultra-thin single cut was going to be perfect for Johnny. I put everything I knew he would like into this guitar, and then engraved the hell out of it including Johnny’s name prominently embossed. He told me it was the most beautiful guitar he had ever seen and started playing the guitar almost exclusively. Johnny and I later spoke about the signature line and entered into a formal agreement shortly before his passing.”
This exclusive collectors guitar features a highly engraved flame maple top specially designed for Johnny with his name prominently embossed. Other features include an ultra-thin Mahogany body, a 25 ½” scale 24-fret maple neck, brushed satin nickel hardware, locking tuners and Dean Zelinsky Custom Humbuckers designed hot and bright achieving that Johnny Winter signature tone. Guitars will be $2899 and come complete with Tweed Tolex Hard Case.
Winter’s Manager/Producer, Paul Nelson stated, "I am extremely pleased that Johnny's dream of having this signature guitar come out has finally become a reality. Johnny switched to this model 3-years before he left us and just loved it's playability, tone and style. It was truly his main guitar." 
Zelinsky launched his new line of Dean Zelinsky Guitars in August of 2013 through his ecommerce website,
