Richard Hallebeek: with Frans Vollink and Niels Voskuil - Crashing Apps

Here’s another song from my new trio cd called ‘Crashing Apps’ that should be out end 2016. This song uses the diminished scale and a symmetrical scale (E-F-F#-G#-A-A#-C-C#-C) exclusively for the harmonies and the melodies. Always a challenge to solo over!
I wrote this song using the JamOrigin polyphonic guitar-to-midi software and also played the outtro solo with it. Plug your guitar into your sound card using your regular guitar output.. and it works - no audible tracking delays. Amazing technology - check it out here:

Frans Vollink - bass
Niels Voskuil - drums

All guitars are 100% Fractal Audio Axe Fx and this cd is mixed with FAS reverb. Thanks Matt Piccone. You can download the solo sound I used for this song here:

Wes Thrailkill: Kickstarter for new album - Deviations

About this project

Hey guys and gals, Mammoth here... I (Wes) just want to say thanks to everyone that has been integral in support of us over the years which in hand puts in perspective how fortunate we are to continue with this musical endeavor - coming up around 12 years since I started this band in my garage as a wee teeny bopper. It's been a great journey, growing musically and getting to share what we love with people all around the world. 

Our new album 'Deviations', which marks our 5th studio release and 7th release in around 5 years is what we feel is our best effort yet, challenging us both physically and mentally. Sonically I can describe this collection of music (around 40 minutes) in direct relation to how my life has transpired over time. It is continually deviating from predisposition while still exposing random junctures that begin to materialize as less arbitrary to when they were first encountered. It is incredibly important to us that we present this material in the way it deserves and that is why we are asking for additional funding this late in the recording process (Mixing and Mastering stage) to fulfill our goal. This album has been a collective process from its inception and it only makes sense to extend our hands to you so we can complete this vision.      

Risks and challenges

We are in the final mixing stage for this album and couldn't be more excited to share what we have been hard at work with for the last year. The album art was completed by Vitaliy Havrylyuk of Portugal and it came out eye opening, which we think mirrors the musical style of this record very well. Our mixing engineer A.J. Minette of The Human Abstract whom we have worked with in the past is making great strides in presenting our sound in the best way possible. We are very fortunate to have him lend his ears and abilities in this process. There are a few guest musicians on the album, (some new, some old) and they have impressed us with their additional interpretations on our songs. During this campaign month we will be doing the final sonic tweaks to the album.

Marshall Harrison: Presto-Digitation! album remastered and back online

Originally released in 2010 the Presto-Digitation! album has been remastered by Marshall Harrison and is back online

My sound evolved from rock instrumental-Malmsteen and Vai-type music to legato influences from the Jazz Fusion world a la Holdsworth to Frank Gambale. Tasteful solos in Blues River, Jettisoned, and Just One Thing really do say it all: tasteful virtuosity by a bluesy "Holdsworthian legato" master. Spearheading a new approach to modern virtuosity via economy/sweep picking by applying the hybrid picking of the right hand, we were able to achieve heretofore brand new, jaw-dropping effects. Dweezil Zappa, Steve Vai, Scott Henderson, and Brett Garsed have all expressed positive feedback.

Samuli Federley: Raindrops nice clean sound tapped arpeggios

This is my latest little song called Raindrops. I had this thing going on with a clean sound where I'm using some tapped arpeggios over a barre chord. I thought that it was a really interesting sound to play two different chords on top of each other. So I needed to make a little song out if it. I hope you dig it.
