Richard Hallebeek: with Frans Vollink, Niels Voskuil - (About) Forever And A Half

A new song from my upcoming trio album called ‘(About) Forever And A Half’ that should be out end 2016. I wrote part of this song back in 1994 while I was studying at Musician’s Institute in LA. For the chorus, the inspiration for the six different guitarparts came from Lyle Mays, who once said that for his string parts, he would record every note separately to give each chord that unique vibrato. Special mention here goes to Niels Voskuil for his god-like drumming! ;-)

All guitars on this cd are 100% Axe Fx and this cd is mixed with FAS reverb. Also used on this track is the Jam Origin midi guitar software.

You can download maybe FX II lead and clean sounds used for this song here:

Frans Vollink - bass
Niels Voskuil - drums
Rich - everything else

Steelianos: Ibanez Flying Fingers 2016

Hello beautiful people!
In this entry I 'm playing my Ibanez Iron Label RGIX27FEQM, got it last year.
I 'm sure there are plenty of reason for a guy to use Ibanez guitars,
as far as I 'm concerned the neck is always unbelievable, the finishes are beautiful and the tone is unique.
Actually I recorded my band's, Enemy Of Reality, new upcoming record "Arakhne" with this exact guitar.
(You can check it out in a couple of months on our website, )
Plus over the last few years I 've done some videos using a JEM DNA and a JPM-100P4. Awesome feeling.

Tom Searle: Architects guitarist passes away after over 3 years living with cancer. RIP

It is with unbelievable pain and sadness that I have to announce that at around twelve minutes past midnight on August 20th my amazing brother, Tom, passed away after over 3 years living with cancer.

He was an incredible songwriter and guitarist. He was my closest and oldest friend. He was a funny, intelligent and sweet man and he leaves an enormous void in all of our lives.

Many of you will be aware that Tom has been absent from various shows over the past 15 months and I can now let you know that this was due to various surgeries that he had to have to treat the cancer. When we left for our European Festival tour on June 2nd Tom was very unwell. He had been advised to stay in hospital to receive care but ultimately there was nothing that they could do for him and he signed himself out of the ward two days before we departed for Germany. Some of you might view this as reckless but this is the way Tom wanted to do things throughout his last year because he never wanted the cancer to get in the way of what he loved. He got on stage and performed his last two shows at Rock Am Ring and Rock Im Park, which took him an incredible amount of strength but those are two shows that we will never forget.

We had to cancel our European festival tour and US headline tour because on June 8th, in Luxembourg, Tom was extremely sick, we called an ambulance and he was taken into ICU. The following day he was placed into a medically induced coma and the doctors told us that it was unlikely that they’d ever be able to wake him. Five days later, against all the odds, he was awake again, and in a few short days following that, myself and Tom cancelled the air ambulance that was due to take him home and we got the Eurostar train home. Classic Tom Searle.

He spent the last 2 months of his life fighting with everything he had to overcome the disease once and for all, and things appeared to be moving in the right direction, but in the last 2 weeks it suddenly took a turn for the worse and finally he left us.

I don’t know what will become of Architects. Me and Tom started playing in a band together when we were 13 and, really, Architects is just an evolution of the band that we started all the way back then, over half my life ago. To pretend that Tom wasn’t at the heart of everything that the band created would be to show a complete lack of respect to the amazing talent that he was. The band will never be the same and there is simply no denying it.

We will 100% tour All Our Gods Have Abandoned Us, there is no doubt about that. We will be going to Australia in a few weeks and we will be doing our UK and European headline tour in October and November. We hope that these shows will be an opportunity for everyone out there to show their respects to my wonderful brother. It won’t be easy for us to get on stage and play every night without him, but its something that we must do.

We want to carry on, that is important to say, and we will strive to do so, but we will not release any music unless we truly believe that it is something that Tom would have been proud of. Whether or not we can achieve that is something that we will have to discover in time.

The Martlets Hospice in Hove took unbelievable care of Tom in his final days. We were constantly blown away by their compassion and hard work and we feel hugely indebted to them for ensuring that we were able to make some amazing memories with Tom before he passed away. If you feel as though you’d like to contribute a donation to the Hospice in Tom’s memory then please donate on the Just Giving page that we have set up below.

For now we need to begin to process what has happened. Myself, Sam, Ali and Adam will need time to fully come to terms with the loss of our brother and we hope that everyone out there will continue to respect our privacy during this terribly difficult time.

Much love,

Dan x

Atanas Shishkov: Ibanez Flying Fingers 2016 , Plovdiv, BG

Many years I have used Ibanez guitars, because they are really reliable instruments, which provide an unique feel and comfort,
great playbility and killer sound.
Basically I like and use Japanese RG models - both old school 90`s and Prestige RG`s.
They sound awesome in stock condition, also EDGE tremolos, made by Gotoh, Japan are the best ones Worldwide!
Using Ibanez you receive high quality guitar on good price!
Even if I don`t win this contest, I`ll continue to use Ibanez guitars forward, because I love them!

Rock on and use Ibanez guitars, because they RULES!
