Rik Emmett: signs with Mascot Label Group

NEW YORK, NY (July 28, 2016) - RES 9 Management along with Mascot Label Group is pleased to announce that Rik Emmett and his new band, RESolution9, have just delivered an album of 11 brand new rockers as part of a multi-album, worldwide deal. The album, entitled RES 9, is tentatively slated to be released through Mascot Label Group in November 2016.

The members of RESolution9 are from Rik's touring quartet: Dave Dunlop on guitar, Steve Skingley on bass, and Paul DeLong on drums, with Dave and Steve co-producing the project. Much of the album was recorded and mixed at Mississauga's famed MetalWorks Studios, where Rik enjoyed a profoundly comfortable re-connectivity to his own roots. In fact, the other two founding members of Triumph (Gil Moore and Mike Levine, from the trio that received 18 gold and 9 platinum awards in Canada and the U.S. in the 70's & 80's) reunite with Rik as special guests on "The Grand Parade", a song that conjures 1979's "Suitcase Blues".

Additionally, legendary guitarist Alex Lifeson of Rush performs on two stellar tracks, with James LaBrie of Dream Theater contributing extraordinary guest vocals on two cuts as well.

Canadian Rock and Juno Hall of Famer Rik Emmett says, "I'm really happy and grateful that Mascot Label Group gave our band complete freedom, and trusted us to do our best. Some might see this as a comeback record, but I’m really proud of the vitality the band generated. For me, it's always about the songwriting - how the melodies and sonic landscapes capture the storytelling."

A more detailed press release will be issued by Mascot Label Group once the album secures its formal release date. Visit and for more information.

It's almost tiring at this stage - there are so many things this guy says that are just plain wrong and deeply unethical, but I'll keep fighting.

Here's why I do this, explained perfectly by the great Thunderf00t

Is it worth fighting idiots?

Scott McGill: Skype Guitar Instruction - Outside Pentatonic Jazz John Coltrane McCoy Tyner Concepts

In this short mini session I demonstrate some of the Outside Pentatonic techniques of the great jazz innovators John Coltrane and McCoy Tyner and how we can adapt them to the guitar effectively. I apply these techniques to the Pentatonic Scale Positions that we already know on the instrument so that they are easily applied and assimilated into our playing. I utilize a few important concepts that were used by Coltrane on "Pursuance" and Tyner on "Passion Dance" among many others.
I was a student of ten years of Jazz Theorist/Pedagogue Dennis Sandole, teacher of John Coltrane, James Moody, Jim Hall, Pat Martino, and many other important jazz musicians. I have recorded and played with musicians such as Michael Manring, Percy Jones, and Jordan Rudess, and producers Neil Kernon and David Torn.

Thanks and I hope to hear from you soon. Scott.
