Robert Ritchiesse: Unidentified Legato Object

This is not studio-quality audio; this is only a home-video session during my practice. Take it or leave it. The music in this video is the solo-background – and the theme as well, without the improvised legato-based solo with my 11-stringed "ax". This tune is the title tune of my upcoming solo album. I was very much inspired by Allan Holdsworth’s Distance vs. Desire, when I wrote this tune – Unidentified Legato Object. But I wanted a much more "darker" sound and harmonies compared to Allan’s lovely tune, and of course, a special composed tune for my 11-stringed "ax". I guess I’m evil …

Hm, there are some "flick-sound" in this recording. I don’t know why, and I don’t care – this time. This time, I only cared about to play my tune … "right" enough … with this basic, single volyme-guitar. To me, this recording sounds pretty "simple and naked" compared to the theme in the studio-version that I have "finsished" in my head: all the volyme guitars with different pitches and settings, stereo reverbs, echoes etc – and even "sci fi"-sounds in the background. ;)

That 11-stringed guitar is my "main ax" since almost 20 years. The tuning system (from "top to bottom" followed by string dimensions) is: g (0,007), d (0,010), bb (0,013), f ((w) 0,018), C (0,026), G (0,036), D (0,046), G (0,060), Eb (0,074), D (0,074), C (0,074). I´m using a Digitech GSP 2101 Studio Tube and a Fender Twin Amp in this video.

I hope you like it.

Take care

Richard Lainegard: Evening Noodle on Fibenare Erotic Dalmat and Torpedo Live

Still going to do a proper demo of this fantastic instrument, but don't really feel I have ideas to make it justice quite yet, it's such a versatile instrument. In the meantime though I did a little test clip with it.

Now, another reason I did this is for a direct A/B comparison with the PRS-test clip I did earlier. Everything in this video is identical, same amp, pedal, torpedo and settings. So with the McCarty as frame of reference, this should give you at least an idea of the width and definition of tone in this guitar. I know I love it ;)

Some specs:
One-piece Hungarian ash body with a 5A maple burl top
one-piece Ovankol neck with a ebony fretboard
this guitar is all hand made, no CNC's or anything like that, just proper (albeit crazy level) artisan craftsmanship

Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson, Neil Peart: Rush | Time Stand Still and a whole bunch of other Rush goodness

More info:

The popularity of a rock band can often be built on the road. That is how Rush did it over their 40 year history. Building a bond with their fans that has carried them through countless gold and platinum albums and, eventually, into the Rock 'n Roll Hall of Fame. But … What happens if this unique, reciprocal relationship between Rush and their devoted fans is altered…perhaps forever.. In May 2015, Rush went out for a 40th anniversary tour and it was rumoured that it may be their last tour of this kind. This might actually be the end of their life on the road. Rush | Time Stand Still is a documentary which covers the R40 tour and the special relationship Rush have with their devoted fans. Exclusive behind-the-scenes access to the band and crew throughout the tour provide the raw and vivid emotional undertones of this feature-length film. At the core of the film are Rush’s devoted fans. Their undying devotion and their quirky sense of ownership are on full display as the R40 tour comes to a crescendo in Los Angeles. Personal stories highlight the importance Rush holds in their lives and the lasting impressions of their extensive catalog. For Rush, they are quick to acknowledge the role their fans have played in their success, which makes this tour so difficult. Candid interviews with Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson and Neil Peart bring the film to an emotional conclusion for a band who built their career the old-fashioned way. One show at a time.
