Jem Godfrey: Frost* set to release their long-awaited new prog album 'Falling Satellites'

Frost* release their long-awaited new album 'Falling Satellites' this Friday, and they have now launched a brand new video for the track 'Numbers'.

Jem Godfrey had this to say about the video: "Us being us, we wanted to try something a bit different for the Numbers video that would make it more interesting visually than just 4 blokes in a room wobbling about so we shot everything using bit of software called DepthKit via a Kinect sensor. This enabled us to create 3d modelled versions of ourselves that could continue to freely be rotated, moved and manipulated even after filming was completed. The render times were horrendous, but Crystal Spotlight did an incredible job putting it all together. I think the end result is magnificently Frost*-ish and suits the song very well".

The album is now available to pre-order, and digital pre-orders from iTunes & Amazon will receive 'Heartstrings' immediately.

Joining him there was Tom Brislin (who played on the Yes Symphonic tour) & Lalle Larsson on keys, Jonas Reingold & Michael Stolt on bass and Felix Lehrmann on drums. The sessions were also bolstered by appearances from Daniel Gildenlöw, Nad Sylvan, Anja Obermayer, Maria Rerych and Kristina Westas who all provided backing vocals.

Tom Hess: How To Play Awesome Guitar Arpeggios (Even When You Can’t Play Fast Yet)

How To Play Awesome Guitar Arpeggios (Even When You Can’t Play Fast Yet)
by Tom Hess

You can turn any arpeggio from so-so to amazing without playing it at high speeds. Use basic creativity ideas to make any sweep picking exercise into actual music.
The following video will help you play awesome arpeggio guitar licks:

Use the following ideas to make any arpeggio sound badass:
1. Create Excitement By Inserting Silence Into Your Arpeggios
Place silence into an arpeggio at unexpected times to make it sound more interesting. Instead of playing through an arpeggio over and over like this:

This makes the arpeggio easier to play and also makes it sound more awesome.
This awesome sweep picking video shows you what this idea sounds like.
Alter where you use silence and the length of time you use it for. Don’t stop at the same point every single time. This is crucial for keeping your arpeggio pattern from becoming boring.

2. Expand And Harmonize Your Arpeggios Using Inversions
You can maintain interest in your guitar arpeggios while repeating them over and over IF you do the following:
-Expand the pattern by using its inversions
-Use inversions as a way to harmonize the notes in your arpeggio
You must have great fretboard visualization skills to be able to expand an arpeggio using its inversions. Choose any arpeggio and attempt to locate its notes across the entire fretboard (for example, find the notes A C E for an A minor).

This example shows the A minor pattern played using inversions and covering the entire fretboard.
In order to add harmony to an inversion, you must record the inversions separately above one another (to do this the inversions can be played in any order).
Watch the video at 1:52 to see a sample of this.

Harmonizing different arpeggios makes this concept sound even more interesting (as you can hear in the video).

Study guitar with a teacher to discover how to get more creative results using this concept.

3. Insert A Break Into The Arpeggio’s Pattern
If you simply repeat the same arpeggio up and down over and over it will eventually become boring. Rather than doing this, break each ascending and descending section into separate licks:
So instead of playing a lick like this:

See what this sounds like by checking out the video at 33 seconds.
Make sure you use both of these variations. If you overuse either one it can become boring over time.

This sweep picking resource gives you twenty-five additional ways to use arpeggios creatively.

4. Use A Varying Amount OF String In Your Arpeggio Shapes
Use a combination of 2, 3, 4 etc. string arpeggio shapes while playing arpeggio licks. This gives your guitar playing more variety and adds additional texture to the music.
Use the following three step exercise:

Step One: Come up with various different arpeggio patterns to play in a progression. For instance:
C minor
E flat major
G major
Ab major

Step Two: Use different sized string patterns plus new inversions each time you switch arpeggios. For instance:
C minor 2nd inversion (3 string pattern)
E flat major root position (4 string pattern)
G major root position (6 string pattern)
Ab major 1st inversion (5 string pattern)

Step Three: Think of ten variations of the arpeggios you came up with and play each variation with a different number of string lengths, plus new kinds of inversions.

5. Bring All These Ideas Together
You’ve got to play arpeggios with a lot of variety in order to keep them interesting. Even the coolest ideas can sound boring if you play them too much. Create variations of an arpeggio and utilize the ideas explained in this article.

This sweep picking resource shows you how to make your guitar arpeggios sound amazing.

Tommaso Zillio: One Easy Trick To Break Out Of Your Lead Guitar Slump

Have you ever felt trapped playing the same lead guitar ideas? Have you tried and failed to get away from playing the same scales again and again? Do your ears lag behind your hands when you break into a solo?

I hear complaints like this from colleagues and other students all the time --- it happens far more than you would think. I believe, as a guitar instructor, the root of the problem is the way we've been teaching guitar since the '70s. All guitar students should learn how to play scales, but most "teachers" have insisted on showing only how to play them from the sixth to the first string and back again.
This teaching method created an entire generation's worth of students who get stuck in patterns that aren't all that fluid or useful to begin with; chances are, you've also learned it this way. For those who don't know what I'm talking about just yet, yes, it is the notorious CAGED system --- but I'll wait for another day to get into that one.

There are hundreds of ways to get out of this mode of thinking. One of the best, however, is to master the scales instead of just learning, and being trapped by them. In the end, there needs to be a paradigm shift in the way scales are taught.

To get started, we're going to go in the diametrically opposed direction, leave behind the scale patterns, and move across the fretboard in a different way. We are going to traverse the fretboard using intervals and paying close attention to the different sounds this makes possible. I'll show this specifically in one, simple example: playing diatonic intervals of sixth. Melodies created with intervals of sixth are soothing, and can be blended into any genre with ease, and if this doesn't strike your fancy, you can always use different intervals, like an open fifth or a tense seventh to spice things up.

I created a short video below to show you what I mean, as tablature and text can't always go deep enough. Take a look through it now:

Remark: the patterns that I've shown aren't the most important part of the lesson. The important part is how interval patterns (the 6th, in this case) can help guide how we move around the fretboard. Of course, this will not sound like the typical "linear" scale everybody is playing.
To really leverage the possibilities, try using these ideas with other intervals, or maybe also with an arpeggio (3 notes rather than just 2) to liven up your lead guitar in new ways. In the end, that's what we're all after.
