This hybrid approach allows Richie to fly through the part at high speeds, while maintaining much of the intensity that is inherent to alternate picking. The six-note phrase is repeated across the entire neck in octaves, until it arrives on the top two strings in the second bar. The remainder of the lick maintains the same picking pattern as it climbs diatonically up the D major scale, arriving at a victorious whole-step bend to from E to F!

Melodyk Run. In this lesson, Richie Allan breaks down several sections from the title track of the Heavy Metal Ninjas album, Interstellar Abduction :. The part starts out with a C power chord with a doubled fifth, which establishes the key of the progression. One of the fifths in the voicing is then moved up a half step to the minor 6th of the key, establishing the minor tonality. From there, Richie moves to a B augmented triad with a D on top [which can also be viewed as a Cmin maj7 chord].

Notice how with each chord, the tonality of the piece becomes more specific; we started out with 5th interval, which could have implied a major or minor tonality, and then confirmed what is most likely a natural or harmonic minor tonality with the addition the minor 6th interval at this point we could also be thinking of Harmonic Major, though it is less common in this musical idiom.

Finally, the addition of the raised 7th degree B confirmed that we are in C harmonic minor! In bar seven, we jump up an octave to a C minor triad in its second inversion. In a similar fashion, the next chord again only implies the lowered third degree, suggesting a Cmin7 chord, which temporarily shifts us form a harmonic minor tonality into a natural minor tonality.

In bar 10 we have a gorgeous Fmin9 voicing, which is then followed by an Abmaj7 in bar 11, which again has an implied third degree. Bar 15 presents a tasty Abmaj7 voicing, which is then followed by a Cmin maj7 in bar The final chord of the progression, also in bar 16, can be named in a number of ways. Most importantly, however, it functions as the V chord of the key, which is pulling us back to the tonal center of C minor.

Remember that there are numerous ways to analyze and name these chords. The purpose of the analysis is to provide context to these different sounds, to explain how they function within the tonality of C minor, and to make it easier to recall specific voicings in the future. All of these tools can be utilized in your own songwriting arsenal!

The second verse riff continues in the same tonality as the intro chords, with all notes falling within the key of C harmonic minor. Note that the two melodies in measure four are identical, but played an octave apart. What really makes this section shine however, is its driving, polyrhythmic groove. This powerful effect adds movement to the underlying groove.

The pattern is interrupted by a sixteenth note triplet run at the end of measure eight to round off the end of the riff. First up, Richie digs into the sweeping arpeggio section of Design. Be careful to maintain clear separation between all notes, particularly within arpeggio shapes that require barring several strings with the same finger. Left-hand muting and rolling will go a long way to prevent notes from bleeding into one another!

In terms of harmony, Richie is playing in the key of E minor, shifting from a string of C major arpeggio inversions to E minor arpeggio inversions. What gives this section its flavor, however, are the tension notes he mixes in with the triad arpeggios. For the C major arpeggios, he adds in a 11 tension F , implying a C Lydian sound. Transitioning with an alternate-picked chromatic line, he moves on to the E minor arpeggios, where he adds some spice using the blues note, a.

The key to nailing the position shifts this section is solid knowledge of all arpeggio inversions across the neck! The bass and rhythm guitar parts behind the sweeping arpeggios serve as a bridge between the old-school neoclassical shred world, and the modern progressive metal riffing styles. Harmonically, Richie is still in the key of E minor, outlining a C major to E minor chord progression. This time, a diminished arpeggio riff serves as the connective tissue between the two chords.

The riff is rounded out by some mighty open chugs, utilizing the vast low-end real estate provided by an 8-string guitar in Drop-E. This section revolves around a rhythmic pattern, which consists of both hands tapping an E note an octave apart. Reaching over top of the neck with your fretting hand will not only allow you tap the fifth fret on the low B string, but will also give you the opportunity to cover the top five strings to prevent them from ringing out.

The challenge here lies in the rhythm; be careful to analyze the pattern and memorize the groove as it changes in each measure. The solo for Design starts out with some wild phrasing filled with dive bombs, a dissonant minor second interval stab, and some heavy duty vibrato. Note the added tension that the raised fourth degree of the hungarian minor scale creates! In bars ten through twelve, Richie offers an interesting approach to octave displacement.

To add even further to this unusual feel, the notes are rhythmically arranged into quintuplets! Note that these arpeggios are all a major third apart. This symmetric quality comes from the whole-tone scale, in which each note is a whole step away from the next. Learn more licks and riffs with Allan by following the lesson links below.

In this next segment, Francesco offers some insight about his upcoming solo instrumental record, his approaches to expanding music harmony, and what it means to be a professional musician:. IC: I know you have some new solo material in the works. And it happens that some material goes to one record, and some goes to an instrumental record. I actually finished a whole record — a second solo album. It will get released sometime this year. FA: Yes!

One of the tracks on the record has a few of my friends and great guitar players that I know. One is Per Nilsson. And then Wes Hauch — another friend and incredible player, so it was awesome to have him. I wrote it really thinking about playing songs from start to finish. It feels like a band playing… and the fact that I had awesome players also [helps].

So this time I really got to enjoy that part and feel like a band. FA: I wish that I had more time to actually work on the guitar playing part. I practiced a lot before going in the studio for this record, because I wanted to go in and just nail riffs and solos and everything, and feel really comfortable.

Of course, then, a lot of the stuff changed while I was in the studio; a lot of what I was practicing was different…. I mean, I still try, especially for lead stuff, to come out with fresh ideas. Is that true? FA: Oh, yeah. That was part of my routine every day. It was probably even more than a year.

I remember every example and everything. IC: One thing I really like about your playing is the phrasing and the more angular motion that you often have [in your lines]. And then you often stretch things out harmonically, also.

FA: One thing that kind of changed the way I was playing, especially when I started getting more into a classical composition, was seeing how a lot of the composers like the modern composers , pretty much create their own scales. That made a lot of sense. I can just do whatever I want. Sometimes, inside that one line you can actually combine different sounds. IC: If you could look back at yourself as you were coming up, learning all these things, is there anything that you would have told a younger self to try differently, because you could have saved a lot of time?

Obviously, there are probably a few things I could have done better, in a smarter way, to make things happen faster I guess, but you live and learn. In terms of guitar playing, in terms of music, sometimes I wish I still had the time that I used to have. When we were at Berklee [College of Music]… there were all the classes, all the homework, but it still felt like I had all the time in the world to just focus on music.

Now there are certain situations with touring and traveling, where sometimes you spend a few days not even touching the guitar. IC: When we wrapped up our previous interview, I asked you for a piece of advice for upcoming musicians. You mentioned that besides the guitar playing, the band dynamic is also very important, as is carrying yourself like a professional; that if you do so, you will ultimately find your place.

Is there another piece of advice you can offer to upcoming musicians, maybe something you picked up along the way during the last couple of years? FA: I still feel like the most important thing is: if you want to be in the professional world of music, treat it like a job. So many people think music is all fun and drinking and whatever, showing up on stage half-wasted. I never see it that way. For me it is a job.

Since it started, I was there since day one. Any talks about putting all that material that you have towards a second album? FA: John and I already started writing new material. Who knows? Known for his explosive, harmonically-laden guitar fireworks, solo artist and All Shall Perish axe-slinger Francesco Artusato has fired off a new chapter with his supergroup, Devil You Know.

The new band found its beginnings amidst writing sessions between Francesco and Australian drummer John Sankey , who is best known for his work with Devolved , as well as Divine Heresy and Fear Factory. Shifting focus from their extreme metal forte, the duo entered into a prolific songwriting period, carefully choosing between moments of elegant progressions, and fiery, calculated aggression.

Powerhouse vocalist Howard Jones joined Artusato and Sankey in late Renowned for his decade with metalcore pioneers Killswitch Engage , Jones rounded out the unified sound that became Devil You Know with his signature scorching screams and soulful melodic vocals. The following day, Francesco spoke with us during a tour stop in Orlando, FL:. How has it been different from what you expected it might be with regards to this new album and band?

People loved it! IC: The musical chemistry is clear, listening to you guys on the record. I know, for example, you and Howard [Jones, vocals] had only met for the first time when you were talking about being in a band together. FA: Yes, totally. It was a weird time, because Howard was not even thinking about doing anything with music anymore. When we started talking, it was supposed to maybe be a studio project just for fun. We all get along and we have very good chemistry.

IC: I know that you and John [Sankey, drums] had been writing music for years, actually, before this band even materialized. I understand start it was just to start writing together? IC: Now that Howard is in the band, you guys have worked together and put together this album. We were not thinking about anything back then. But obviously, after we got Howard involved, we started writing really thinking about the possibility of having a singer like him.

This was the time to do it. John and I kept going and wrote bunch of material. Howard liked everything we were writing. In fact, it was really weird when we got to the studio. We had so much material…. We pretty much liked everything; everyone liked everything they were doing. IC: How did you end up narrowing down the material? There are twelve songs on the album, but you wrote forty going into it. We had people involved: the label and even managers, and the producer [Logan Mader].

We started showing a lot of material to the producer in the studio. IC: Once the label got involved and you guys were looking to make a record, was there a push from the label towards a specific direction? FA: Not really. You guys are the writers. That was awesome. It needs to sound like that. FA: The cool thing is that all three of us wanted to make a record that had a lot of variation. I want a lot of variation, even sonically. I want to have a song that has completely different dynamics.

I like to have the really fast and crazy song, and then maybe a ballad with just clean guitars or something like that. The last song on the record was something that kind of happened by accident. None of us had ever done anything similar to that. It needs to be on the record. There are twelve songs on the record, but we actually tracked and finished a lot more songs in the studio.

FA: It started with John and myself. Most of the time, he would write drum beats and send songs that would have… a five-minute song, just drums, and then all different kind of different grooves and different things. This could be the verse. This whole process was all done from my house, from his house, and sending stuff back and forth. The whole point would be at the end, before we got to the studio, we were actually going to jam and play all the stuff.

We actually did. We went in the studio, brought this music to life, and played almost forty songs. We spent weeks just playing the stuff like that. IC: I appreciate the fact that you guys took to the time to actually play the songs as a band, jamming them out in the room. What kind of changes did you notice between your computer versions of the songs that you sent back and forth, to the ones that you jammed out? FA: A lot of the times it would be slight adjustments in terms of tempos.

Sometimes we would change a whole riff to make it more of a live band riff. That was our whole point. Both John and I come from bands that are very technical. Even the solos and everything; I played everything so much and practiced it so much. I wanted to have it comfortable on the stage. It should give a certain entertainment to the people. I feel like us, as a band, are going to have a better show that way.

IC: All Shall Perish is taking somewhat of a break right now. Would you consider this a side project to All Shall Perish or is it its own entity altogether? FA: Absolutely, its own entity. This is a band that I wanted to start or be in for a very long time. This is not a side project for any one of us. Click HERE to check out the second part of this interview, where Fran foreshadows some future plans with Devil You Know, and reveals details about his upcoming solo album, which features several special guest appearances.

He also shares his approaches on expanding harmonic boundaries within music, and wraps up with core advice for upcoming musicians. Marco Sfogli has been blowing the minds of industry veterans like James Labrie for a decade now with his trademark blend of soulful, inflective rock stylings and stunning technique.

It has a lot of harmonics, a lot of singing qualities. I think we came out with some cool lead tones. I know you like to keep busy with a lot of different projects. MS: You know, recording a lot, doing a lot of sessions, a lot of studio work. This is pretty much it. I have a lot of sessions going on when I come back to Italy, so I try to keep it busy. MS: Not yet. I decided to take a break from the solo things to concentrate on other things like collaborations and sessions and stuff, but I will surely do another solo record in the future.

It will take time, it will be fun. So thanks for having me for this interview. IC: Thanks for doing it, man. Glad we finally got to meet in person after all these years. We had our first interview, what, maybe four years ago or something at this point? MS: Yeah, maybe more. Like the previous version, the Triple Six III offers three completely independent channels and watts of pure tube tone from two massive KT88 tubes. A new setting of channels gives you greater control of the crunch sound.

In addition to his collaboration with Jason Becker, the upcoming album also features guest appearances from Rodrigo y Gabriela, Alexi Laiho Children of Bodom , and David Davidson Revocation , and others. Tell me a little bit about it. What does it sound like? IC: I think with a few of your previous records you ventured more into pop writing and structures and less lead-oriented kind of arrangements. This is not the case here.

I tried to keep really focused on this record. This is a whole, worldwide type of thing. IC: As you recall from your previous American releases, and then your Japanese releases, how do feel people perceive you differently in Japan, versus the U. They might remember me from my previous bands, or if they have a really open mind and are very adventurous, they might dig in and find some of my Japanese stuff.

For the mainstream, I think it will be a comeback of sorts in America. Which it feels weird to me, because I never really left, but I actually did leave. How do you explain that? I have no idea what people are going to think. I just hope they love the record. IC: I know for a lot of people some of their favorite Marty material is you playing with Jason Becker back in the day with Cacophony.

Do you ever think back to those days? Do you keep in touch with Jason? MF: We are best friends, of course, and I actually collaborated with him on a song on Inferno. We did a song together despite his situation with ALS. He still came up with some beautiful music, which I arranged and played. IC: Any piece of advice that you can offer to guitarists coming into the scene today, trying to make their mark, and find success in the industry? Instrumental music is a tough genre.

I love playing in a band the best. Sort of like that, but there are more instrumentals on Inferno. Instrumental music is kind of a dead end street. I hate to be negative but these are the realities. There are only so many people who want to listen to that much guitar and most of them are guitar players.

Those are the only two options. This is weird coming from me because… the people who love my music, a lot of them are guitar players. I love your support and I appreciate all that. If I was only doing instrumental music I think I would pull my hair out. My advice is, collaborate with as many people as you can. Play in a band.

Be part of something great. MF: Thank you very much. I hope you like the new record. And I love you. Thank you very much! Click HERE to view all winners and finalists of our guitar solo competition!

Stay tuned for the upcoming lesson series with videos, audio clips, tabs, etc…. Hailing from Norway, Jarle H. His full-length debut album, Quadrasonic , showcases his talents through its emotive atmospheres, surgically precise performances, and lavish harmonies.

Rooted in neoclassical metal and fusion playing styles, Jarle has forged a recognizable voice on his instrument; one which he never fails to pair with memorable melody and elegant songwriting. IC: Can you tell us about your current projects?

I know that last year you released your first full-length solo instrumental album, Quadrasonic, and you have a new record out with your thrash metal band Pitch Black Mentality. Apart from that, I have another funny project with Bjarte and a friend coming up, featuring over 30 tunes. So stay tuned…. I can recommend it to any metal fans, as there are plenty of kick-ass thrash tunes on the album.

What were some of the challenges of each project? JO: The songwriting sessions for Quadrasonic were a very evolving and lonely experience. It was about identifying my own style, as much as it was about challenging myself, musically. The dedication and challenge with Quadrasonic came more from the compositions, rather than the performances, actually.

I really wanted to make a unique and solid-sounding album, based on my perspective of what a good sounding, complete album should sound like. For the Pitch Black sessions, they started out with my buddy Frank who invited me to join him for the songwriting. He had some heavy riffs and cool ideas, and we cooked it all together to complete the tunes. He is generally more inspired by harder hitting metal stuff than I am, so his aggressive riffing style, combined with my more melodic and progressive ideas worked out well.

This was more of a collaborative experience and my challenges here were the leads. I wanted to play more intensely and aggressively for this kind of music style, yet melodically and in control. For instance, Alex Skolnick was a major influence for me in the early days and I really enjoyed his contributions to Testament. JO: Quad means four and sonic means having a speed about equal to that of sound in air. The project has four members and the music may at times become kinda speedy in terms of notes.

So there you go… hehe. IC: You re-recorded one of your signature tracks, Osiris, for Quadrasonic. Since its original release, the composition has evolved into three movements. How has the meaning of the piece changed for you since you first recorded it and were the additional movements written around the same time as the first? I later wrote a tune that had the same kind of dark vibe as Osiris, which eventually became part three.

I also had this ethereal, floating string progression, which reminded me of the Middle Eastern music culture, which I really love and wanted to add in there. So I decided to make a saga of these three parts, since they fit together pretty well.

It tells the story of Osiris, the omnipotence, in a musical language. IC: One of the ways in which the compositions on Quadrasonic stand out to me is through the fresh use of harmony throughout the record. What are some of your favorite scales and tonalities that you have been exploring? Although, I do prefer playing in darker modes and writing serious sounding music. It has such a unique depth.

JO: I use Carvin guitars and Dimarzio pickups exclusively. For the amp setup, I used various things. How have your influences and musical preferences changed over the years? We did instrumental stuff, but slightly different sounding than what it is now. I also contributed to various other musical projects throughout the live scene.

I was rehearsing and perfecting my style of playing, I suppose. IC: You have some of the most precise and cleanest picking skills in the business. Are there any tips you can offer for guitarists looking to clean up their technique? JO: You know, I see technique as a tool. I guess I use a mix of alternate and economy picking, depending on what sound I want.

Make it easy for the listener to understand what you actually want to say with the notes. How did you get involved with this project and what is it like traveling back and forth across the globe? I met up with ASP4 in and we played a cool event together. After that, we kept in touch throughout the years and I met some really good musicians over there, whom I later toured with within the country. There are loads of fans and dedicated people within the metal scene there, very nice people. In , we did a major tour there, which was pretty successful.

IC: From your experience, how would you compare the music scenes between the two countries? Interestingly enough, many more people shows up at the gigs there, than here in Norway. But I also believe that it has to do with the hunger for experiencing real music live. The audience there knows what they want and you have to deliver.

JO: The Internet has provided a vital connection between artists and listeners, particularly within the guitar instrumental music niche. With the web becoming more saturated every day with music-related content, is it still as reliable of a medium to connect with your fans as it was in the past?

How do you balance your career in terms of live performances, lessons, clinics, etc… and your online presence? You suddenly get every musician in the world on your laptop. There really is no need to suck these days! Jarle H. Olsen — Osiris — The Omnipotence. I remember sitting with tape recorders, rewinding the tape until it got all fucked up, just because I wanted to learn a specific part of a song so badly.

It really sharpened my ear training abilities. Instead, everybody wants it served on a plate, and if not well-served, they go browse for the easiest solution on the Internet. It happens with games, as well as with music, and everything else. The only reason I do have Facebook, is to promote myself and my music. Nothing else. Some people like to upload pictures of what they eat every day or even how damn funny the cat next door looks.

Different pleasures…. IC: Surely a great deal of your time is devoted to music, but what do you like to do in your off-time? What are some of your hobbies? JO: I love going on extreme mountain trips. I also enjoy going out, being social, having some drinks with friends once in a while. Love swimming. JO: There may be some touring plans with Pitch Black. I also wanna try to play more live with Quadrasonic, as always.

Probably other plans too, but I do not like to plan too much in advance. Things usually turn out differently than you would expect, anyway. IC: What advice can you give to aspiring musicians looking to take their musicianship to the next level? JO: The sky is the limit. If you believe in yourself and your goals, realize them! Know your abilities and limits and work them hard! For more information about Jarle and his music, please visit JarleHOlsen.

From ibanez. From musiciansfriend. Introducing Iron label. It features a comfortable basswood body and an Ibanez Nitro Wizard-8 neck. Its bound rosewood fingerboard and jumbo frets offer effortless fingering the full length of the fretboard. EMG pickups put out plenty of sonic diversity and power and come with a killswitch for some cool effects. The renowned Ibanez RG and S guitars take on their most vicious metal form yet. Fast, full throttle neck.

Seasoned woods with a stark black-and-white aesthetic that eschews standard metal glitx for Metalcore swagger. The following lick is based on an Emin7 arpeggio. Thought of in the key of D major and played over an A7 chord, the resulting sound has an A7sus4 flavor. The lick could also be played over an Emin6 chord for a Dorian sound.

In this variation on the above lick, Ryan more explicitly resolves the Emin7 line to an A dominant sound. Starting on the fourth beat of the second measure, he shifts to an A minor blues scale, making sure to also include a C , the third degree of A7. The first part of the solo is played over a thrash riff alternating between C and A notes. Although only single notes are being played in the rhythm guitar part, Ryan interprets the harmony as switching between C minor and A7.

The solo continues to build in tension and is brought to victory with a blazing, alternate picked, Yngwie-style harmonic minor lick starting in measure The following fretboard-spanning deluge of sounds is a great example of how Ryan likes to connect various A7-based ideas across the length of the neck.

Generally, Ryan likes to use this technique to extend his pentatonic tapping runs. Finally, to apply the Spock Technique, Ryan builds on the previous example by adding his ring finger for an additional tapped note in the lick.

To expand the line further, Ryan precedes it with an Amin7 tapped arpeggio. Welcome to my lesson at Guitar Messenger! The first example comes from the ambient part of Enigma of Abode. Guitar Enigma — Guitar Chords. To create even more space in that part of the song, I combined the guitar with some keyboard sounds. I created the first layer, which was some kind of weird arpeggiated noise in the background. It first nicely with the guitar part and sounds like this:. Pad 1 Enigma — Pad 1.

The second layer is a windy, airy type of sound. I was searching for that type of sound, because I wanted to fill that top end spectrum in some way:. Pad 2 Enigma — Pad 2. For the last layer, I just used the melody that I took from the chord progression of the guitar part. To play that melody, I used some Rhodes electric piano samples:. Rhodes Enigma — Rhodes part. After a nice ambient break, the rhythm section for the guitar solo comes in.

I was wondering a lot about what kind of bass part I might want to use here. Finally, I came up with this slap part:. The next example is the second verse of the song called Message From Atlantis. Firstly, I tried to recreate the opening melody in the second verse. I was experimenting with harmonics a lot and this is what I came up with. In the next half of the verse, I play a denser guitar part to continue to evolve the section and connect it smoothly to the next chords.

I tried to create as much ambience and space as possible from just the guitar and bass. I tried to make another ambient instrument out of the bass, so I used a slightly unsual approach. I think it fits the guitar very well:. The layer structure is pretty limited. Here is the ambient guitar part:. The solo starts with the melody, which is then followed by a two-note-per-string lick.

This is followed by an alternate picking pattern and a string-skipping lick at the end. The solo finishes with a legato-based phrase. I hope this lesson was helpful and inspiring to you guys. I also started working on my solo music again, so you can expect some new tunes probably before the summer. Thank you guys and take care! It has been used in the studio and on countless stages around the world, and is now available to you as well.

Stay tuned and check out the first two teasers below:. The title comes out on Favored Nations Entertainment, the label Vai founded in The Story of Light follows the journey of a man driven mad by grief, intertwining tragedy, revelation, enlightenment, and redemption.

The completed trilogy, intended to be cinematic—even operatic—in scope, will include lyrics and narration. The Story of Light is available as of today for online pre-sale orders. In support of its release, Vai will begin a tour of North America on August 15th in Fort Lauderdale Florida, accompanied by his band—who are also featured on the new album: Dave Weiner guitar , Jeremy Colson drums , Philip Bynoe bass , and Deborah Hensen harp, vocals, keyboards.

Australian guitar shredder and producer, Paul Wardingham , has announced The Human Affliction as the title of his new instrumental cyber metal album. Wardingham, who released his acclaimed debut Assimilate Regenerate in through Enigmatic Records , says this second full-length will be a concept album. Currently in the pre-production stage, Wardingham hints at what to expect stylistically from this new effort. Today, Enigmatic Records released an official teaser poster and a new website design to promote the upcoming release.

The Human Affliction is going to be something very special. Ever Forthright have released their self-titled debut this week. The NYC-based collective is pushing the boundaries progressive metal with their with infusions of hip hop, DnB and pop into a djenty brew of jarring, syncopated riffs and eerily pleasing vocal harmonies. The physical record can be bought at everforthright.

Having acknowledged the self-titled Tony MacAlpine as his greatest solo work to date, he backs up the claim with his virtuosic luster through his convictive guitar leads and heavily structured rhythmic passages. Not merely content to contain his keyboard flourishes as a lush ambient background, he flexes his piano prowess with fluid mastery and unrivaled authority honed since a gaspingly early age.

And just as he enjoys riding his motorcycle through the scenic routes of Pasadena, California, he knows from his own carefully crafted legacy that he has paved a new way with this tour-de-force of a solo album. JA: Your album Tony MacAlpine is an incredible landmark in your work as a virtuoso guitarist and keyboardist.

What made you decide to put a solo record together after years of focusing on collaborative work? TM: Thank you. Years of collaborative work with others and the desire to create some of my own new works after such a long time away from it really fueled the fire for me.

I am happy that you enjoy the new CD, as there is such a fine line of doing things that you want to do at the moment and doing things that you should. JA: How would you compare the making of this album to the making of previous solo albums? TM: Not much has changed in that I am still working in my own studio to write and record all parts, but aside from that the opportunity presented itself to work with Ulrich Wild as head engineer and mixer… and wow did he ever knock this one out of the park.

He really is something!!! TM: Classical music is one of the many foundations of art form that I have been blessed to have in my life at such a young age and for so many years later. I practice and play piano still a lot more than the guitar and I am constantly finding and discovering new works — for example, the writings of William Alwyn I am able to really absorb the thinking of many composers, because I am very fortunate to be able to play their compositions.

For me, this is something I cherish and also realize it has great bearing on what I am willing to write and record. I also have quite a lot of previously recorded music that I can draw from to keep my inspirations slightly more grounded. And then, of course, from there I am able to take ideas that I might have explored before to a deeper level.

Playing music for me on various instruments is also a great source of music inspiration — therefore I feel I am usually motivated. JA: How challenging was it to adapt to the 8-string guitar? What kind of difficulties did it provide to you at first, if any? TM: There are no difficulties in playing the instrument.

But the instrument itself has to have a place, sonically speaking, to fit into the modern instrumental band. After all, it is so low at times, pitch wise, that it has the ability to get in the way of what a bassist would play. JA: What made you decide to stop using Carvin guitars after so many years?

Do you see yourself sticking with Ibanez for a long time after your recent switch? TM: The folks at Carvin are just super people who make first class instruments and I have had such a wonderful time playing their instruments for so many years. I was working with Carvin long before I was playing their guitars and the same with Ibanez.

I used Ibanez effects in my guitar rig in the early days, and have always had a great communication with the people over there. It was a wonderful progression to be able to work closely with Ibanez on producing some really great guitars that I am able to incorporate into my style both in the studio and live. JA: Apart from the Ibanez 8-string guitars used on this album, what other gear pickups, amps, effects, etc… was used?

How has your setup changed over the years? In the studio I have some great Tri-Amps that I record with and some very good Source Audio pedals to mess around with. I also have some Ernie Ball wah pedals and volume pedals that are a must for me in any session. I am now using DiMarzio pickups in my main guitars on stage and I do not use any effects for recording. I record the amps pure and at mix down we start to add different things.

How have these experiences shaped you as a musician and what have you taken away from the collaborations? TM: Steve is a wonderful player and music personality. His unique sound is unmistakable, as is his compositional strength. You gain many usable additives in life both as a person and player when you work with talent such as his.

JA: Are there plans in the works with any of your bands, including your most recent collaboration with Seven The Hardway? TM: Our plans right now are centered around touring and staying on the road as long as we possibly can. We have such a great line up in this band with Aquiles Priester on drums, Bjorn Englen on bass, and Nili Brosh on guitar. This band really cannot wait to get out and play some shows, where we can venture into the early recordings, as well as the new!

How does performing on these kinds of television appearances differ from your live concerts? What was it like working with the producers and hosts of these shows and others you have appeared on in the past? TM: Television is great. And I feel natural doing it, because when I was a young kid, my little sister and I would pretend we were on TV all the time. I mean I was on thousands of TV shows back then with her in the family living room!

It really is no different for me. If you already enjoy what you do, then that is half the battle. The other half is to just try and play well. I have been lucky to work with some of the greatest show producers and television personalities here in the USA as well as around the world.

JA: Who are some bands or solo artists that you would like to be touring or collaborating with in the future? We are making quite a few decisions on what steps to take concerning that and you know I am always excited to work with other bands that are like-minded. Our goal right now is to play this new CD or as much of it as possible in live formats.

JA: What advice can you offer to other guitar players out there trying to follow in your footsteps. TM: Learning your craft and loving what you do is very important for me. Without that there really is not much of a reason to pursue the field of music. So make lots of friends and always try to learn what you can from the more experienced players out there.

Tony likes to incorporate arpeggios into his playing in sequential patterns, whereby a given arpeggio shape can be repeated in different octaves across the fretboard. In this example, he uses hammer-ons, pull-offs, and tapping to outline a Dmaj7 arpeggio shape. The lick starts with the 7th degree of the arpeggio hammered-on to the root on the high B-string. This move is then followed by a hammer-on from nowhere to the 3rd degree on the high E-string, which in turn is hammered-on to the 5th degree.

The line finishes off with a tap on the 7th degree and the entire pattern can then be applied in reverse across lower octaves. Note that this lick does not involve any picking. Similar to his approach to tapped arpeggios, he demonstrates a 2-string scale shape that can be repeated in octaves across the fretboard.

The repetition of this same shape lends itself to consistent alternate picking, which in turn makes playing at higher speeds more comfortable. The specific fingering pattern is of particular importance in this example. Tony plays an A Minor scale starting first finger on the root of the scale on the 5th fret of the A-string. He then shifts his entire hand up two frets to the seventh position where he uses his first finger again, this time playing the second degree of the scale. The rest of the scale is then completed in the same position and the whole pattern starts over in the next octave.

The melody can be heard several times throughout the song, making its first appearance at 36 seconds. Being a classically-trained pianist, Tony often shifts between composing on the piano and the guitar. This melody serves as a great example of piece that started out on piano, but was then translated onto the guitar. Note how the arpeggiated line weaves through the chord changes and is embellished by 7th and tension notes.

In this whirlwind solo, Tony displays a vast array of his signature techniques and inflections. Take note of how his smooth phrasing ideas connect the time signature changes throughout the piece. Andy Timmons is a world-renowned proponent of instrumental rock, known just as much for his impeccable taste and gorgeous tone, as his blazing chops and harmonic dexterity. While Timmons remains very faithful to the source material, he captures that sound in a live trio context with an absolute minimum of overdubs.

While it may seem a truly daunting task, it quickly becomes evident that Timmons, Daane, and Marine are more than up to the challenge. Timmons plays guitar with the same articulation as a soul singer, full of grace notes, pickups, and runs that keep you listening throughout. During the outro of the latter track, Timmons pulls out some of his most outlandish moves. But when things start getting fast and trippy, he quickly adapts and gives the song a rocking edge with his insane bends and wide vibrato.

The ending builds into a cacophonous, psychedelic whirlpool before finally landing on a crashing E major chord. You can pick up any shred album and hear great playing. What sets this album apart is the real musical statement it makes. Pepper on October It is, without a doubt, one of the coolest things I have ever heard…originality, as well as virtuosity, will make this the best guitar instrumental record in decades, if not ever.

Every song on Sgt. One Guitar. Lead guitarist Andy Timmons arranged it all from memory, never once referencing the original album. It all culminates in an extraordinary lovefest of psychedelic proportions filled with improvisation and surprise.

Andy is such a great player! I think his fans and many Beatles fans will love it. It was natural to put this out — it was fun and it feels right. The tones are awesome, the arrangements true, the playing is stellar… truly unique. Truly, Andy Timmons is a renaissance man whose guitar work can fit any genre. The three musicians hit it off so well in terms of musical interplay and chemistry that they immediately said after the show that they need to do this again.

That talk evolved into making a debut album and the new fledgling supergroup went into the studio in Chicago in late-April to record the album which will be released in the summer of Alternately raw, sophisticated, intense, intricate, soulful, eclectic, lyrical and supremely musical, The Aristocrats sets a new standard for excellence in adventurous rock-fusion music that retains the energy of rock while exploring the outer limits of fusion that encompasses jazz, progressive, metal, blues, and even modern electronica-techno with a stunningly cohesive ensemble sound.

See it and hear it all from this incredible new band that takes the power trio concept to a whole new level. The music of The Aristocrats is also where complex musical compositions and tonal soundscapes meet challenging improvisations and creative spontaneity. The Aristocrats is about taking rock-fusion into a new realm of uncharted musical territories. Come see and hear music that is simply unprecedented…. The band is armed with one of the most powerful efforts of their storied, iconic career.

The album marks the recorded debut of new drummer Mike Mangini , which fans are clamoring to hear. All the content will be housed in a custom box and those who purchase will receive a digital download of the album the day prior to release. Dream Theater are also planning to embark on a massive world tour, where they will play selections from A Dramatic Turn of Events, as well as classic, staples and fan favorites.

Labelmates Trivium will appear on many dates, supporting their new album In Waves. The initial confirmed run of dates is below, with more to be announced imminently:. We started experimenting with some longer forms — songs that are maybe five or six minutes, but mixing great, powerful breakdowns with other parts that are really fast and technical and really heavy grooves. You just came out with Chaos And The Primordial very recently — can you tell us about how that came together and what the writing process was like for that one?

I was always involved in project bands, and my need was to also have something where I was the only one writing, so that I could do whatever I wanted to. Sometimes in a band, even with a solo, you have to make everybody happy. But then, I had other songs that I thought were really cool, plus I kept writing and I got to the point where I had ten songs, and I just wanted to have the whole thing done — a whole album.

The guitars were re-amped with Engl, Soldano and Peavey. Basically, I got to have the guitars sound the way I wanted. I spent a lot of time with drummers that I know, two or three different drummers, messing around with the velocities and trying to create a more natural touch. I write classical music, too. I keep working on it. I think the film scoring background, composition and the love for classical music definitely made that characteristic [sound].

Sometimes what I try to do is to create those type of colors on the guitar. Basically, the rhythm tone is just that sound all the way. For leads, on the footswitch there is this contour switch. With Hiss Of Atrocities I had a lot of stuff. I had a lot of different tones — clean sounds and all that. FA: A lot of it is fun. A lot of it is also trying to rest, especially when you play in areas where the heat is really something. I try to be very quiet and not spend a lot of energy, because I want to have that 40 minutes a night where I just give everything.

You have maybe an interview, and you have things to take care of. The other cool thing that we do is: we have a laptop with an audio interface, so when we have free time we write some music. Obviously you just put out the solo album and you were getting ready for the All Shall Perish tour.

Other than that, how does a typical day go by for you? Since I wake up, I start something related to music. I want to be active, and I really want to do a lot every day. IC: Where do you see yourself a couple of years from now, with all of your projects and All Shall Perish?

Where do you see your career heading, ideally? You need to be focused, and you need to be doing the right thing all the time. When I listen to music, at least lately, I rarely listen to heavy music like rock or metal. The first time I played guitar, an hour later I wanted to be a famous guitar player. If you want to play in a band, sometimes the hardest thing to find is the chemistry between the band members, and finding the right band members.

You see that all the time, the changes in lineups. Just work as hard as you can. George Bellas is a unique figure in the world of instrumental guitar. His fusion of technical facility and compositional prowess allows him to consistently deliver fresh material that both excites and challenges his listeners. The Dawn of Time, his latest offering, continues to expand the boundaries of his signature sound. At the same time, the record incorporates the neoclassical roots that have been a hallmark of his style since the beginning.

I recently had the opportunity to catch up with George and talk about his music:. Each new album is always exciting, because for me that means reaching and looking for new things, exploring new ground that I have not worked with before — hopefully without alienating people that liked my past releases, which I think I kinda did on my last two things: Step Into The Future and Planetary Alignment. They were so far out.

That was a great resource and source of inspiration for me when writing Planetary Alignment. Step Into The Future and Planetary Alignment were pretty far out and very futuristic sounding, as opposed to Mind Over Matter , which was more straight-ahead neoclassical — older concepts that people are more familiar with, I think.

IC: There is some excellent material on this record. GB: Right on — thanks a lot. And another thing, you mentioned the lyrical melodies. In this day and age, especially with younger players, we all have this fascination with developing our technique — which is good. We all want to play good and proper and all that good stuff, but not for the sake of neglecting great melodies, awesome song forms and exploring new territories with harmonic, melodic and rhythmic concepts. On that particular track, if I remember correctly, I used the JCM for the rhythm and most of the solos and a Strat, along with a Les Paul here and there somewhere in the middle where the band drops out and then this melodic line comes in after a minute or so.

I used a Les Paul on that for nice thick, huge sustain. IC: Tone-wise, this album has a similar vibe to previous releases, although many of the leads seem rounder and juicier, yet without sounding more distorted. Is there anything you did differently in terms of micing or EQ? I really wanted to leave it open, and have a lot of room for each instrument to breathe. I think it was bass, drums, guitar and vocals — a pretty simple but cool layout. Unfortunately, on that the production was nowhere near, not even in the ballpark of what I wanted it to be.

The s, for me, give you a real cool smooth, liquidy overdriven sound. I really like to hear every single note in my articulations. Tone is like a chick. To each their own. But for the most part the amps I used were the same. IC: The bass tones have definitely moved up a level on this record. Can you tell us a little bit about your bass rig? GB: Yeah, the bass was a lot of fun. I have always really, really enjoyed playing bass.

On this album, I really wanted to bring it up a notch with the bass. I miced up the Ampeg cabinet with a [Sennheiser] MD mic, and I also went direct, and I just used a combination of direct and the mic when mixing. I also had this custom cabinet made. A lot of guitar players that live in apartments might be familiar with these little isolation boxes.

This is not an isolation box that you may think of one to be, but what it is is just this box that surrounds the microphone. I used it for the bass recording. It just goes right in front of the microphone. And just by backing off the iso box a little bit, you can fine tune it to have as much room sound as you want.

So that was pretty cool. I was really happy with the tone. It was really a combination of things: that iso box, the cool SVT classic amp — that amp just kicks ass, man — and the Music Man Stingray bass. Was that a conscious decision? GB: Extremely conscious decision. I like my music to breathe, to have distinctive soft points and loud points. Having albums totally compressed like that may minimize fluctuations in the volume due to outside noises or whatever.

But anyway, for this album I wanted it to be very musical and dynamic, so I used a minimum amount of compression while mixing, and a very limited amount again when mastering. Not necessarily for the songs, though I was a huge Rush fan, but for the pure fact of hearing how the album was mixed and mastered. They just sound so open — the cymbals are really up there.

Mixing is the art of compromise, it really is. Phenomenal drummer — I wish I could hear the cymbal work more. Rush is always one — I throw on Tom Sawyer, for example, just to hear that great dynamic range and the production of that album. So I wrote a lot of music, just as I always do, but my main focus was the production on that album. That was quite a challenge on that. But the past few years have been great. Like I mentioned earlier, I already completed another album this past December.

Marco Minnemann will be doing the drum tracks. With the workflow, I tend to get into these intense writing phases at least a couple of times a year. It takes me about two to three weeks to write an album, and that is total focus, man. It gets pretty intense, man. I still use pencil and paper quite often, even since the advent of the computer and these music programs, of which I use Logic for most all composing and production. What did I do? IC: Last time I asked you for advice for aspiring musicians.

What are your thoughts? GB: Good question. Try some of these new ideas that some people may be a little apprehensive of trying. Who cares how fast this guy or that guy can play? I have no care at all, as far as speed or how slow somebody can play. That way the label can handle the marketing and all that comes along with putting out a release.

A lot of guitar players have heard of you at this point, so why do you feel that you need the record label? GB: For this album, I recently acquired this Hawaiian ukulele and a washboard. But again, these new releases are heavily immersed into the Romantic era. Holy cow! I wish there were more hours in the day for listening. A lot of my time is spent on either studying or writing and recording, but when I do listen, I love listening to that stuff.

No washboards, no banjos and no ukuleles — I promise [laughs]. In the beginning there was nothing… And then there was light! The Dawn Of Time. Fifteen billion years later George Bellas presents to you an epic collection of instrumental songs inspired by the universe, how it was created, and from where and what it came from.

The album contains a diverse collection of 19 songs that range from simple and delicate, to complex and ferocious. The production is dynamic, clean, and has an open sound to it allowing the music to breath naturally. For some songs I wanted to utilize compositional techniques and elements from the baroque, classical and romantic eras, and also have other songs lean more on the progressive side by using modern aspects of music. Another important factor to me was the melodies, I wrote some in a lyrical style, and others in a virtuoso instrumental style.

Their research, thought-provoking lectures and writings have been the most inspiring resources I have ever had. This new album is also more aggressive sounding than my previous release. I do not subscribe to the volume wars that the industry has been in since the advent of the compact disc. When I want to hear something loud I much prefer to use this neat little invention called a volume knob.

Marco Minnemann once again performed and recorded some mind blowing drum takes. I truly believe Marco to be one of the best drummers that has ever lived. I used a Sennheiser MD to mic the bass cabinet and combined that with the direct out of the amp. Another factor of achieving the bass tone was using a custom made isolation box for the mic, not an iso-box for the whole cabinet, but just the mic. Having the isolation box surround the mic allowed me to selectively increase or decrease the amount of room reflections.

The whole of July will see exclusive interviews with guitarists on the labels roster, special offers on releases from the LM store and a whole host of other goodies. I want you all to know how much I love to create music and how much of a thrill it is to share this with you all. I have happily and very willingly invested a lifetime in developing and honing my skills both as a player and composer, all the while sacrificing many other things in life to be able to push my abilities to the brink and beyond.

But quite unfortunately, due to the overwhelming situation of the illegal downloading of music, A. When I see the amount of fans that write to me, and then look at the sales figures, it becomes very apparent that something is not right. I initially found this out from several fans emailing me asking what the correct song order was on the album because the songlist inside the booklet differed from what was printed on the CD face, and then to my surprise, one of my private students came in for a lesson with the same unauthorized version saying he bought it off of Amazon.

The label did say a good amount of money has been invested to find and prosecute these crooks. So in these cases, not only myself and the record labels but it was the fans too that also had been robbed. It costs money to make albums, and the artists and labels rely on sales to continue to do so. Stealing copyrighted music is a violation of international copyright laws and subject to fees and imprisonment.

For more information please visit: 1 What is Copyright? We have to say today there is more attention about creating a good single hit to try to put it in the charts, so the songs structure is often influenced by this point…I agree we have no more works like old Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, etc… but I think they were able to do that….

This is the reason you try to create songs in order to be considered by radio stations, TV stations, all those places where you can get some royalties, even if you would like to put a 3 min intro to your favourite song, or a long psychedelic bridge in another one….

Believe me, a musician who can use all his time to produce his music will create better works compared to the one who has to do another job to pay rent and bills. Borislav Mitic returns with a majestic new album The Absolute. The virtuoso Shredmaster delivers his strongest musical statement as of yet for Lion Music.

The following is a special message from Borislav regarding the new release:. Here are a few words on a very important subject to me — illegal Internet file sharing download!!! You see,… it is very hard to master an instrument. It takes a lot of years of practice, discipline, study and dedication like going to a university and more to reach the level of playing that I and similar musicians are at.

It is really very hard work to compose quality music and create something special for you listeners out there. It is very hard to make records too because the studio time is very expensive making your own project studio is a big cost too and not many can afford it or even know how to operate it. It is also very hard to find a Record label to publish your music these days,… and even harder to arrange real retail music store distribution to circulate the music on the market and make it available everywhere.

But musicians go through all these pains because they love and believe in music and they believe in fair and just financial reward return for hard work of producing beauty of music they offer to the world. Musicians who make the music give the album to the label under certain conditions. Then label sells it through its distribution channels and shares the percentage of return income with the musician.

Stores and distributors also get their cut for the retail sale service to you — the customer. So the bottom line percentage per a CD that goes back to the musician is quite small in the end. To make a living from music this way a lot of CDs have to be sold. That CD money also gets re-invested in touring, new albums, promotion, etc. Everybody in the chain of music industry is living from this system of sale… magazines, concert promoters, labels, music stores. Every single CD sold counts and especially today for smaller artists like myself who do not have a big budget at their disposal to promote themself in mainstream media, TV, Magazines, etc yes, all that actually has to be paid for and costs quite a lot.

Hey, you can make a cool free collection of thousands of albums with no money invested at all! Woohhhoooo, viva la internet!! How cool is this!!!??? Do you eat? Me too! To get food I have to go to the grocery store and pay money for it like you.

The same goes for clothes and other products. What if everybody starts stealing food unpunished? How will the grocery store employees survive? What about their family? How would the farmers producing food survive if we take it from them for free? They would not. Do you catch my drift? You CAN also beat up an old lady on the street and steal her pension from her wallet … but somebody CAN beat you up too and do the same to you.

Would you like this? Or would you perhaps like to go to work 9hh for free? Would you like musicians to visit your home and take some of your property for free? Why not? They can use it… the same way you can use illegaly downloaded music without paying for it. This all would be called robbery of course and is illegal and if we would apply this pattern of behaviour to the society in general as a rule of life we would very soon have a society of filthy, wild savages!

My point is — if there is no money coming back to us musicians for the ultra hard work we invest we will all eventually give up and stop making music. If the unchecked Internet theft goes on much longer very soon there will be no more new albums from the artists you like and cherish so much on your illegal free MP3 collections!!! Soon after that the whole music industry, concerts, fun time, guitars,… will be dead and gone — thanks to Internet and illegal global piratery system!

Game over! The blood will be on your hands… But If you want the music to SURVIVE please treat it like you would like to be treated yourself and do the right thing by paying for it. The rumor is…It is mind boggling, high paced compilation record with a surprise bonus track that is a unique song choice for the guitar god!! In other news, Yngwie has recently parted ways with DiMarzio. DiMarzio , the Staten Island, New York-based company that produces magnetic pickups for electric guitars, will continue to manufacture the pickups and guitar straps that Yngwie endorsed minus the YJM designation and, in some cases, with a change in the model name or part numbers.

Only the names have changed. Only the name has changed. DiMarzio , the Staten Island, New York-based company that produces magnetic pickups for electric guitars will continue to manufacture the pickups and guitar straps that Yngwie endorsed minus the YJM designation and, in some cases, with a change in the model name or part numbers. Caprici Di Dablo Brothers Blitzkrieg Trilogy Suite Red House Finale Magic City Arpeggios From Hell Far Beyond The Sun Cantabile Blue Overture Fugue Jason Becker was born on July 22, and started playing the guitar at the age of 5.

By the time Jason was only 16 he was already being praised as a guitar virtuoso and was one of the hottest up and coming players on the rock and metal scene. It was around this time that he joined forces with Marty Friedman to form Cacophony, a band which has provided us with some of the most mind-boggling metal compositions and performances to date.

In he was set up with a computer and music software so he could continue composing with his one good hand. Jason managed to finish writing his album, Perspective, but after that he could no longer move or speak. He now communicates with eye movements using a system invented by his father. Despite the immense hardships that Jason has had to face throughout his life, he has been an inspiration to countless people by maintaining his positive spirit and attitude throughout the years.

Today Jason remains an active composer and in late released Collection — an album consisting of some of his most outstanding material from previous releases, as well as several brand new tracks, which feature guest performances by a number of prominent musicians, including Joe Satriani, Michael Lee Firkins, Greg Howe, and Steve Vai.

IC: How are you? How are you feeling these days? Last we heard you had been feeling better with increased strength in several muscles. JB: I am feeling fantabulous. I am totally cool both physically and mentally at this point. I have heard rumors of my death and rumors of my healing.

I might try healing sometime. What is the status on these projects and do you have any other upcoming plans? JB: Finishing my autobiography is my next goal. I really need to get that out there so people in my position can read about another way of looking at life. I want to show people that we are all here to be creative and learn the truth, and sometimes a disability can open more doors to the truth than fame and fortune. No one has to die to attain happiness.

The documentary is sort of on hold for now. I am not sure how that will end up. It is now available to buy. I love how it sounds. My co-producer, Dan Alvarez, and I are currently pulling all of my old 4 track, 8 track and computer music into ProTools so I can make new songs from that stuff.

How did you go about choosing the players and what instructions did you provide them with regarding the performance and recording of the songs? JB: Choosing the players was easy. I love all of their styles. The only question was, would they have time and would they be up for it. Then I played a tune for Marty Friedman and he asked if he could do a solo.

I was stoked when he asked. Satriani and Vai were next. That was a big deal for me. They are so cool in every way. My buddy Firkins lives nearby. We always have a blast working together. I gave Hunter and Howe my scratch demo solo, but that was just to have a slightly better idea of the melody. I basically told everyone the mood and feel that I wanted. Really the main thing I wanted was to have them do their own interpretations.

My old guitar playing is all over the album, so I wanted to take advantage of their unique styles. I am so grateful to them all. IC: What did you think of the resulting tracks and whose contribution was your favorite? JB: Funny question. I think they all killed it! My favorite was always the one I had just received. Sometimes the solo inspired me to add another instrument or two. What was the writing process like for this track?

How do you incorporate these influences into your music? JB: Thank you very much. That is nice to hear. I wrote the main melody first. I wanted everything to fit over one note, but still be beautiful, melodic and complex over the subtle OM. Then I added the orchestral parts. Then came the lyrics. It took quite a while to find all of the right sounds that I and Dan Alvarez wanted. I wrote it with my caregivers following my instructions on a keyboard, a Mac G-5 computer, and Logic Pro software.

As for incorporating world music influences into my own music, that is very tough to answer. I am just inspired by so many types of music. I am a sponge. Finding the notes that I want is the easy part. The hard part is combining different styles together. I have to make little changes and variations in the composition. I really like doing one part, for instance with an Indian style, then another part with a modern classical feel, and then put all of that together in a huge mass of grand music.

Can you talk about some of the more unusual scales and modes that are part of your signature sound? JB: Marty Friedman turned me on to the Japanese scales. You can also use a major pentatonic scale. If you play these notes without a blues type of feel, you get some neat sounds. You can also try stuff like taking one of your simple licks and making every other note an octave lower. These kinds of ideas may help you sound unique.

IC: What kind of music do you listen to these days? Who are some of your favorite artists? JB: I listen to all kinds of music. And I mean that literally. I love all kinds of world music. I find so much inspiration from different cultures. I am also way into funk, classical, blues, rock, pop, jazz, country…hip hop…. IC: During your late teens you became one of the leading virtuoso guitarists on the scene, and possibly the youngest amongst them.

Are there any young players out there today that have intrigued you? It can be anything you want. I cried. I have a new black and tan hound dog named Star. She sleeps on the couch. I have three cats named Bear, Ali and Laila. Ali and Laila sleep with me at night. What inspires to keep moving forward? My family and friends are pretty much saints. We have a blast together. I still laugh quite a lot.

My guru, Amma, helps and guides me so much. I never feel alone. JB: Be open to all types of music and everything in life. You never know what is going to inspire you to be unique. Get the Flash Player to see this content. Then I ascend through a 4-string 2-octave shape 3 notes per string. This is a cool scale shape I use all the time, instead of just moving straight up diatonically I ascend 4 strings and then that same shape an octave higher.

That passage is economy picked, as are all of the ascending scalar passages I play. Using this kind of picking enables me to play across the strings at fairly terriflying speeds. Then I snake through a cool mixed minor shape I use all the time. Then I economy pick through a hexatonic shape. I use those all the time as well, where you just take a 6-tone scale shape and play it in 3 octaves. The lick ends on an Uli Jon Roth type of melodic phrasing idea with some wide vibrato.

This is a band that has been able to create their own unique style of music, blending sounds of classical composition and progressive heavy metal with extraordinary musicianship. As a guitarist, Romeo is known for his incredible technique with his own brand of tapped arpeggios, smooth legato phrasing, and lightning fast alternate picking.

At the same time, his playing exhibits tasteful inflections and a strong sense of melody. The band is currently finishing up their headlining U. To get more info on Michael Romeo and Symphony X, check out www. Pretty smooth, no real troubles or anything.

IC: The new album, Paradise Lost, is one of your best-selling albums, if not the best. What do you attribute that success to, in comparison to your previous releases? MR: I think the songwriting is better. Recording-wise… all around, you know? And I think a lot of the metal stuff is coming back. You hear people playing again.

So I think that too is a part of it. People are looking for some new music. Is it a concept album or did you just take inspiration from it? We had a couple songs done already and they were all pretty heavy and they were all pretty dark.

And we were going to try to work on a long tune — a big long epic kind of song. So everything does have this cohesiveness to it. IC: And speaking of the orchestra and choir — you have a lot of orchestration throughout all of your music. Where does the inspiration for that come from?

IC: Can you cite some particular influences or is it in general just the vibe of that sound? Over time you start to listen to other things, and there was Wagner and Rimsky-Korsakov, then Stravinsky and Holst, and the 20th century guys. It just seems to fit the music better. So all that stuff goes into it.

IC: What is your background on orchestration? How did you get into actually applying it to your music? MR: Just studying man. Just getting a lot of books on orchestration and a lot of reading. But most importantly, listening to things with the score.

So you develop… it takes a long time I guess on your own. I definitely did work at it a lot. I mean I know enough, but you can just go on and on learning shit, so…. IC: Do you program these arrangements in your studio or do you go out and record with a full orchestra and choir? And I have a bunch of [sound] libraries, but probably the most dominant one is this Vienna symphonic library.

What happened during that break? We started talking about the record in We never had a situation where we were still doing stuff and trying to work [on the record]. But with the Odyssey now there was stuff happening in the [United] States, a lot more touring. And then the Gigantour thing came along with Dream Theater, Megadeth, and then you know… same thing — rehearse, out for whatever….

We gotta finish writing the record and record it. It was rumored that a couple of years ago most of you guys still had day jobs. MR: It depends. That kinda thing, you know … you do what you gotta do. We got done with this record, and before it was even out we were playing. And this tour ends August 11th or 12th or something, in a couple days. And then we have about a month off. What was that like? Do you have any expectations coming into this tour?

MR: Nah man, I mean those guys are totally cool. Yeah, should be cool man. IC: Tracking back a little bit, when you were just getting started out with playing the guitar, you obviously put in quite a few hours honing your technique. What was your practice routine like, especially during that period and compared to now? I practice once in a while. I mean, sometimes there is just times you want to practice and maybe try some new things. But in the past, yeah it was full on practicing all the time.

In the beginning I got some lessons from a good a finger style guy. He was great all around, but he was a great finger style classical guy. And later you know, learning chords, the pentatonic scale, and a lot of that. And then just right down the line — Paul Gilbert, Yngwie Malmsteen… all those guys. So yeah just learning stuff like that, reading books on theory, learning all that stuff, and just trying to put it together, and come up with cool shit.

IC: Did you ever consider going to a school like Berklee or G. MR: When I was younger, yeah, I probably thought about it. I was more of a band guy though, you know what I mean? I thought for me it was better on my own because if there was something I wanted to learn, I would figure it out. And reading music, I mean I played piano when I was young, so I could read. So along the way I was able to do what I needed to do.

You changed from ESP to Caparison guitars. Why the big change? With the Caparisons, this guy in this band Evergrey let me try his guitar, we were playing at some show together and it was a real nice guitar. With ESP they were just giving me some guitars to play, just what they had — kinda stock thing.

They were great, but the neck was a little too flat. And I got used to it over time, but when I first started playing for years and years I had this old Kramer — a Kramer Pacer. And it had a real nice neck, had a little bit of meat in the back, and a nice curve on the fingerboard.

I sent that neck cause I still have that guitar to the Caparison guys, and I sent them a Fender neck I had too, that I liked the thickness of. And they just made this neck — I said you have to make the radius from this one and the grip from this one, and whatever… and they made this neck, after those two. And I mean it sounded good.

I think like for certain things, like really heavy rhythms they would be great. Definitely the dynamics of it. But I like something a little more that you can feel when you need to dig in and has good response and reacts, you know? IC: And as far as amps go, I know you like to use Line6 for live performances. Why not tube amps? You setit up — boom, done. IC: When working with tube amps in the studio, do you boost them at all with a Tubescreamer or anything like that?

My setup is nothing special — standard Strat type of thing, tuned down, 10 gauge strings, and pickups are DiMarzio ToneZone in the neck and a DiMarzio X2N in the bridge. You took it to the next level, so how did you get there? MR: Yeah, probably a little of both. I was all into Kiss, and I wanted to be in a band and all that….

Eddie probably did it first. But yeah, the old Van Halen and Randy Rhoads stuff did it. And then when I started getting into Randy Rhoads, Ritchie Blackmore, Uli Roth, and those guys, they had that whole classical background. So then the tapping thing starts to come into it. There was like this one song that I did with this guy Vitalij Kuprij, keyboard guy — fucking awesome.

All these little things kind of become like your own thing after a while. It just happens. IC: As mentioned earlier, Symphony X has been growing significantly as a band. Where do you see the band going within the next 5 years?

MR: I have no idea. I just go day-by-day man. Luckily everything has been progressively better. From just the writing, and the band as guys. The touring has been better. And sales like you said. MR: Yeah man, for me it was just listening to different things. Yeah, just listening to different things man. It could be learning piano lines or violin lines, or just trying to incorporate all these different things with a band.

James Byrd is perhaps one of the most underrated guitarists out there today. He describes his style as Symphonic Metal for the New Age, in which he focuses much more on composition for the entire band — or orchestra for that matter — rather than having all other instruments play around lead guitar parts, which is a common trait within the guitar virtuoso community. I took a lengthy break from writing and recording after my Father passed away in October of , and just concentrated on my guitar company, which of course I am also currently working on.

I remember when I was only two or three years old, my older Sister got a guitar for Christmas, and I got one of those little Mickey Mouse guitars with the four plastic strings and the little hand crank which played music. I remember throwing a bit of a fit and wanting the real guitar my Sister got.

I had never seen or heard Hendrix until the day he died, and when they showed him on the news playing The Star Spangled Banner at Woodstock, that was it for me. My parents were bitterly divided over the war. The reaction of both of them to Hendrix on the news that night was negative in the extreme; it really upset both of them. Being the rebellious type I was, I saw what Hendrix was doing as having a great power in it.

They say good art has to upset someone. IC: Who would you say are your greatest influences both for guitar playing and composing? JB: There were distinct phases. My earliest and two most important influences were Ritchie Blackmore, and Jimi Hendrix.

I immersed myself in the blues for several years. My first ambition in terms of technique was to develop a great vibrato and phrasing. I learned almost all of B. I also loved Paul Kossoff of Free because he had a great vibrato.

I hate to toot my own horn, but by the time I was 15, I had as mature a vibrato as Paul Kossoff and could draw crowds in music stores with the first note. Frank Marino was also an inspiration, especially to play very fast and with a lot of intensity. I remember sitting around with the Mahogany Rush Live album and playing along note for note with his solos. What kinds of things do you look for when creating a balance within the song?

I just play what comes to me naturally. Great solos have to be well played, and memorable. Do you ever plan on recording a full concerto? JB: Thank you. IC: How did you go about learning how to compose and arrange classical music for a full orchestra? Except for the Harpsichord part, nothing was scored.

IC: You are perhaps the only guitarist in the neoclassical-metal genre who has been supported and endorsed by Yngwie Malmsteen. What are your thoughts on this? How do you feel about his latest work, Unleash the Fury? The last album he sent me was Magnum Opus. I thought that was quite brilliant. One of the reasons we became such good friends, is because we have remarkably similar backgrounds musically.

We share an almost identical experience regarding Hendrix on September 18th , and we both loved Ritchie Blackmore and Uli Roth. I recognize our playing similarities more than he does; I was on the phone one night in a three-way call with him with Uli, and we were taking turns playing music we were recording for each other. I think that was one of the more memorable times I had hanging out with other players.

Uli was a big influence on me during his Scorpions period; I could hear similarities to both of these guys, but they could only hear the other guy. I took a lot of stuff from the same albums at the same time. IC: What kind of gear are you using nowadays? Can you tell us about your custom guitars? My guitar goes into a DOD overdrive, an original Dunlop cry baby, and then straight into a 50 watt Marshall plexi I bought in The amp is stock except for some extra fuses across the mains —it caught on fire once-.

The overdrive box has just enough gain to push the amp into power tube distortion with my guitars. I only use plain carbon batteries in my two pedals, I find this actually makes a real difference to the tone. I use matched Tesla EL84 tubes in the amp. I wanted a guitar that gave me everything a great strat could, but no one had ever really addressed what I had considered to be the annoyances of the Fender over the years. I thought it was. I never liked the block neck joint, and I never liked the lower body horn; if you assume the classical position on the upper end of the fret board to play arpeggios, you bang your wrist right into that horn.

I also thought the headstock design was fundamentally backwards in terms of string tension. I used to use left-handed necks on my strats because it made bending the higher strings easier. I had played strats for 99 percent of my time as a guitarist, but the other guitar I had favored was the Flying V.

So the beginning of my idea was to build an ultimate guitar, which would marry the three — single pickup array and scale length of the strat, with a new body shape. The shorter upper wing is also ergonomic. I came on the idea of actually inlaying the entire pickguard assembly into the instrument, instead of just screwing it on top as other manufacturers do, and it uses polished flush screws instead of the usual oval head screws.

Everything is dead flush and smooth. It took me several years of experimenting with different pickguard materials and methods of doing the precision inlay before I hit on the final method. They make a big difference in the tone of the instrument actually, giving more definition and spank to the sound. The guitars also feature a sculpted bolt on neck heel that feels as nice as a set neck.

I found bolt-on necks to actually have a more lively sound than set necks for a number of reasons too lengthy to go into here. I now offer the instruments to the public by custom order, and players can specify their neck size and shape in ten one thousandth of an inch increments and choose from about a dozen different pickup winds.

IC: What would you say have been the high-points and the low-points throughout your career? The low point came early when I had to have major hand surgery in for tendonitis that was bad beyond steroid injections. IC: What kind of music do you listen to these days and how do you feel about the overall state of the rock genre today?

JB: Short answer is whatever my wife has in the CD player in the car! Other than that, I either listen to the same music that originally moved me, like Deep Purple or Hendrix, or I listen to classical music. JB: Learn to play blues well. I lose interest after about 15 seconds of that and I think most non-musicians do as well. Listen to how great singers handle the phrasing of a basic melody.

But they are not simple to play. If you can develop looseness and freedom of feeling, you can add all the modes and knowledge of advanced technique to expand the music and also still reach people emotionally. Record yourself and listen back. You should never be too satisfied because there will always be room to improve.

Finally, strive to be authentic; there will always be someone faster, more advanced, or technically better somewhere.
