Adam Neely: How to turn viral videos into jazz fusion




How do you turn videos on the internet into jazz fusion explorations on the bass (or any other instrument)? And what do call this sort of music, anyway? It turns out theres a lot of history to this sort of conversational approach to music, and yet there still is a lot of unexplored ground. It's super fun, try it out!
The video by Publio Delgado that kicked off the recent trend:

Vincent Brzezinski: Autarch by Conquering Dystopia



This is my cover of the great Autarch by Jeff Loomis and Keith Merrow. The harmonies very difficult to play even though Autarch is not the fastest part of the Conquering Dystopia album http://conqueringdystopia.com.
I play on Schecter Demon 7 and Fender Mustang Floor

Roger Pedersen: Twilight Zone- from the album "Guitar Madness and other nice songs"



This is “Twilight Zone” live - from my new album «Guitar Madness and other nice songs» (track number 13). I use a collection of guitar techniques on this song; like eight finger tapping, sweep picking, alternate picking, hybrid picking (guitar solo), regular tapping and maybe some legato notes. Hope you’ll like it.
