Zakk Wylde: Rig Rundown - with premier guitar

Article and photos:

PG’s John Bohlinger hung with Zakk Wylde before soundcheck during the Nashville stop of the Generation Axe tour. Wylde, an intimidating muscle-bound shred monster turned out to be perhaps the nicest guy on the planet, is a renaissance man, and a titian of industry. Zakk humbly took us through his rig full of newly-launched Wylde Audio wares.

The guitars Wylde tours with are the same off-the-shelf models that are available through Wylde Audio. Typically, the Black Label Society frontman hangs on to one axe through an entire set and on this particular night this Warhammer model got the call. It features a mahogany body, maple neck, ebony fretboard, Floyd Rose tremolo, and a set of Wylde’s signature EMG pickups.

Wylde also plays this Wylde Audio Viking V. It has nearly identical specs as the Warhammer, but with a pinstripe finish.

News: Unplug for Summer with PRS Guitars SE Acoustic Factory Authorized Sale

(STEVENSVILLE, MD) June 1, 2016 – Shorts, sandals, and sunlight aren’t the only things to look forward to this summer. From June 1st through July 31st, 2016, PRS Guitars is celebrating summer with a factory-authorized MAP (minimum advertised price) holiday on PRS SE Angelus acoustics.

Unplug and relax with one of PRS Guitars four SE acoustic models: the A10E, A20E, A30E, and Alex Lifeson thinline signature model. All SE acoustics are designed with meticulous attention to detail and provide professional quality and dependability for players of all levels at an excellent value. High-quality specifications across all four models include solid wood tops, bone nuts/saddles, PRS’s hybrid “X”/classical bracing design, and the trademark PRS bird inlays and headstock design. The Angelus cutaway body shape provides easy access to the upper frets, and undersaddle electronics come standard on all models (tone and volume soundhole controls) for added functionality and flexibility.

Where players can decide which model suits their playing style, and where the models diverge, is in the wood combinations. The A10E features all-mahogany body construction for warmth and punch – perfect for solo singer-songwriters and players who need to find a non-competing place in the mix of the studio or stage. The A20E pairs a solid spruce top with mahogany back and sides and rosewood fretboard and bridge for lush tone with a uniform string-to-string balance – great for players who back and forth between heavy strumming and more fingerstyle/single-note playing. The A30E is appointed with rosewood back and sides and an ebony fretboard and bridge for an overtone-rich sound of bell-like highs and full bass response for percussive players who really like to dig in. And, finally, the SE Alex Lifeson thinline acoustic, designed with the Rush guitarist to mirror his Private Stock model, is a powerful, road-worthy guitar.

During the promotion period, MAP on these models is:

* SE A10E: MAP Holiday $499 USD. (Standard MAP is $599).
* SE A20E: MAP Holiday $599 USD. (Standard MAP is $699).
* SE A30E: MAP Holiday $729USD. (Standard MAP $829).
* SE Alex Lifeson Thinline: MAP Holiday $699 USD. (Standard MAP is $799).

Tom Lippincott: The Half Diminished Sound

Half diminished (also known as minor seventh flat five) chords are a familiar structure to most jazz guitarists and occur in many, if not most, standards. Even beginning-level players usually know a couple of half diminished voicings to plug in when needed. However, because this sound isn't as common as major, minor, dominant, and even fully diminished chords, jazz guitarists are often not as well-versed with half diminished as with the other sounds.

Many players who can otherwise improvise and comp comfortably and effortlessly through a tune might stumble when a half diminished chord comes up. It's understandable that we aren't as familiar with concepts that we don't use as frequently.

This class will focus, in detail, on the often ignored, but beautiful and ethereal-sounding half diminished chord. First, we will find chord voicings and arpeggios all over the neck with exercises and suggestions for improving fluency. Then, we will investigate many different uses of the half diminished sound so that it can be implemented over just about any of the commonly played harmonies in jazz.

This class will help you become more comfortable soloing and comping on half diminished chords, and it will also give you new ideas for using half diminished chords and arpeggios superimposed over other harmonies to create new and exciting sonorities.

The Half Diminished Sound covers:

- Basic structure and sound of the chord
- All voicings on the guitar of the half diminished/minor seventh flat five chord
- Half diminished arpeggio fingerings, both along individual strings and across the strings by position
- Exercises for gaining fluency with the chords and arpeggios all over the neck
- Explanation of different techniques for adding color tones to half diminished chords, with numerous examples
- Thorough exploration of using half diminished sounds to represent harmonies from the major and melodic minor scales, both as chords and as arpeggios, with multiple example of each
- Use of half diminished chords to create harmonized melodic minor scales
- Finding the four half diminished chords contained in the diminished scale and using them as chords and arpeggios to create fresh sounds on diminished chords
- single note solo etude demonstrating material from the class on the chord changes to "Upper Manhattan Medical Group"
- Chordal etude using a harmonized melody utilizing the concepts from the class, also using the chord changes to “UMMG”
- Running time: 95 minutes
- Includes 22 pages of written examples and exercises
- All musical examples from the video are provided in music notation, tablature, and chord grid form.
- Each example performance in the video is titled and numbered for easy navigation.
- MP3 backing tracks for written examples, as well as full-length tracks for improvisation practice
