By: M.J. Brady

here sure are a lot, if not too many guitarists around these days, and a huge amount of them are playing shred/fusion ala Yngwie Malmsteen, very few have made any significant strides as solo artists or on the music front. Richie Kotzen is an exception to this rule, he has the gift of nimble fingers to be sure, however, he also has a keen sense of melody, so he is not trying to attain the world record for notes per CD. With a background in blues and metal, he released some solo efforts with the shred label Shrapnel, they are mainly known as a spawning ground for fret-gymnasts, he along with label mate Greg Howe, are certainly a different breed than the other clone types coming from that camp. Kotzen also has a feel for writing good songs, this was to be perhaps his best solo CD to date. He also did some fantastic work with ex-Return to Forever bassist and drummer, Stanley Clarke and Lenny White, on their Vertu release, proving he was ready to play in the big leagues. This CD also features bassist Jeff Berlin known for his work on Bruford\'s solo fusion material, and Gregg Bissonette on drums. This is a fusion feast, and you will get an earfull of the delicacies of the days when fusion meant kick-butt energy, speed, complexity, and soaring electric guitars, darn good stuff.

Once again, Project teams up Richie Kotzen with Greg Howe for another set of crazy guitar. Recorded in a 90's kind of way, Kotzen and Howe sent their ADAT tapes same studio at the same time. A somewhat darker album than their first collaboration, "Tilt" (a notable exception - the lively "Present-Moment"), the songs on Project exude more creativity, while delivering the expected intensity and virtuosity. Kozten has stated, "Making these records with Greg is always a musical challenge." No word from Howe yet. Instrumental Guitar (Electric (Heavy)/Fusion/Shred), total running time, 52:35

4.Abrupt Terminal
5.Villa Strangiato
7.Her Dance
8.Full Throttle

Greg Howe's Ascend features more of the guitarist's trademark modern sound that seems to borrow equally from rock and jazz. The CD is a collection of progressive compositions which highlight Howe�s incredible technique and melodic genius. Over the course of the 8 tracks, Howe duels with keyboard virtuoso Vitalij Kuprij in an intense progressive musical setting. For his part, Howe creates some excellent conterpoint to the furious keyboard work, revisitng a genre of music that helped to contribute to his development as a musician. Ascend also demonstrates Howe's skill at phrasing and an effortless use of both speed picking and smooth legato licks.

"Quantum Soup" written by Jordan Rudess

Liner Notes:

A southpaw from the south, he emerged with a masterful band called The Dixie Dregs. In no time, word of Steve Morse's unique guitar style traveled this country and beyond. It was a style borne out of an unflinching commitment to excellence. His execution, awe-inspiring as much in his choice of notes as in the cleanliness of his delivery, became a benchmark for aspiring guitarists to heed.

Long before Steve Morse began his relationship with Magna Carta Records, those aspiring guitarists, perhaps awestruck by Morse's harmonic sense, tone, and articulation, were voting him tops in such publications as Guitar Player. Such unanimous endorsements point to Morse's uncanny (and rare) ability to play the complex lines guitarists like to hear and make music.

Indeed, music is what you hear when you sample the various tracks on this compendium of seminal Steve Morse songs. In Magna Carta Records, Morse found the forum in which to display his dazzling diversity while contributing solid compositions. In fact, each of the Steve Morse songs found herein, while replete with guitar virtuosity, feature melodic lines that you will hum long after the CD stops spinning. And to hear those figures played so supremely clean is to dig at the root of Steve Morse's artistry.
Aside from deep country and that Dixie funk, Morse exhibits a huge variety of guitar influences, from Steve Howe to John McLaughlin, the latter who seemed to define for a generation the proper ratio of jazz to rock. Then there's this pervasive baroque thing, almost Mozart-like in its staccato phrases and Bach-like in its serenity—evidence, perhaps, of Steve's classical studies in Florida (check out "Air on a 6-String" or the figure that begins around 00.50 on "Prognosis"). No wonder he used to typify his work as "modern chamber music"!

Cacophony - Speed Metal Symphony

Speed Metal Symphony signified a dramatic change in neo-classic heavy metal, by blending together the "over the top" guitar fury of Marty Friedman and 17 year old guitar phenomenon Jason Becker. Speed Metal Symphony features intense classical, contrapuntal lines, played in odd-meter against a speed metal wall of rhythm--enough to have left guitar fanatics pointing at their speakers in disbelief. Instrumental tracks include "Concerto" and the mind-numbing title track. Shred/Heavy Metal, total running time, 45:03

Cacophony - Go Off!

Guitarists Marty Friedman and Jason Becker Go Off! on musical tangents previously unexplored in contemporary metal with the help of powerhouse drummer Deen Castronovo, bassist Jimmy O'Shea and vocalist Peter Marrino. Go Off! features all the scorching solos and double leads you would expect after the Cacophony debut, Speed Metal Symphony, woven into a frame work of superbly crafted vocal songs. The title track is another clasic Becker/Friedman instrumental, with a handful of great twists and turns. As Jason Becker remembers, "The song I am most proud of is "Images". It was inspired by Debussy. I had written words for it, but they were so silly Peter couldn't make anything out of them. There are some magical moments on this CD. Deen's drumming is incredible."

John Petrucci - Rock Discipline (Libro)

Included in this file are 19 Guitar Lessons by John Petrucci of Dream Theatre. Also included is the booklet for the video "John Petrucci - Rock Discipline". It has all the exercises covered in the video to improve your guitar playing. The following is a description about the Rock Discipline video.
Note: The video is not included in this file.
Dream Theater guitarist John Petrucci has long been admired by the guitar-playing community for his almost unearthly technique. Petrucci is not only respected for his technical prowess however; he has been voted "Best Guitarist" in Guitar Magazine, and "Break Through Guitarist of the Year" in Guitar for the Practicing Musician. Such remarkable accomplishments made Petrucci a logical choice to host the Warner Brothers instructional video release "Rock Discipline".The two hour video opens with Petrucci outlining numerous warm-up exercises he uses prior to gigs or practice sessions. These exercises are designed to strengthen your fretting hand, your picking hand, or both. These warm-ups alone are worth the price of the video; all of them start at a reasonably simple level, yet develop into virtually impossible exercises as variations are applied. That Petrucci plays each at quick tempos without flinching is testamount to his incredible technique.
exerpt of a warm up exercise from John Petrucci of Dream Theater
These warm up exercises could provide hundreds of hours of practice for the motivated guitarist, but these exercises truly are the tip of the iceberg in the video. Next comes some of Petrucci's favorite speed building exercises. Many of these are simply scale fragments that the guitarist plays repeatedly, or builds into an exercise. These speed builders are good, but not as focused as the warm up exercises. Some of the patterns are extremely long, and often don't follow any sort of coherent musical structure, so they may be difficult to memorize. Petrucci's extensive use of effects while playing some of these exercises is also somewhat puzzling and distracting.
While there is some documentation on chord construction and soloing ideas on "Rock Discipline", it is technique that is clearly the focus here. Petrucci, throughout the course of the video, outlines exercises to help guitarists work on "inside the string" picking, legato playing, sweep picking, arpeggiating chords, string skipping, fretting hand stretching, and much more. The guitarist also takes time to reflect on how he was introduced to the guitar, his thoughts on soloing and songwriting, and his musical influences. Dream Theater fans will also be very happy to find generous clips of Petrucci playing with the band. Also included in the video is a segment that explains Petrucci's guitars and gear in detail, including set-up information.
"Rock Discipline" clearly isn't intended for beginner guitarists; even the warm-up exercises at the beginning of the video require stretches that novices will find overwhelming. That said, "Rock Discipline" is a superior resource for accomplished guitarists looking to increase their technical facility on the instrument.

John Petrucci - Suspended Animation 2005

Guitarrista de Dream Theater, la banda de musica progresiva mas popular del momento, John Petrucci supo ubicarse entre los grandes virtuosos de la musica distorcionada. Poseedor de una capacidad compositiva excelente, John tiene una tecnica en un nivel muy elevado. Comenzo tocando a los doce, hasta que algunos años mas tarde se decidió a tocar en serio y fue a estudiar a Berclee donde conocio la teoria, la armonia, y la composición musical focalizandose en el Jazz. En ese lugar fue donde conocio a varios de los musicos que luego formarian Dream Theater. Tambien se desarrollo de manera autodidacta estudiando a sus idolos: Steve Morse, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Yngwie Malmsteen, Randy Rhoads, Steve Vai y otros tantos.
Sus tecnicas favoritas son el picking, mediante fragmentos de escalas, el Legato, sweet picking y el estudio de compaces poco corrientes (5/4, 5/8, 7/4, 7/8) conocidos como old meters, que utilizaban los grupos progresivos de los setenta como Yes, King Crimson y Rush los cuales fueron gran influencia para Dream Theater.

The Legendary Guitar of Jason Becker (video)

The tragic and ultimately heroic story of one of the most awe-inspiring and innovative metal guitar heroes of the eighties. As co-member of Cacophony, with Marty Friedman, Becker defined the liquid-smooth super-complex playing style that characterised the Los Angeles guitarists of the decade. After being diagnosed with Lou Gehrig\'s Disease in the early nineties, Becker has continued to play and compose.

This DVD features rare and archive footage of both Cacophony and many solo performances. Furthermore, the film includes Becker\'s guitar clinic at the Atlanta Institute of Music, giving a poignant insight into this legendary figure.

8. Stop Putting The Hurt On Me (3:01)
9. Watch Yourself (5:47)

B.B. King es uno de los guitarristas mas populares de todos los tiempos y una leyenda viva del blues. Considerado por muchos como el Rey del blues, es el mejor embajador en todo el mundo y ha sido de los que mas han trabajado para popularizarlo. Ha influenciado practicamente a todos los guitarristas de blues y rock que le han sucedido, debido a que su estilo es el ABC de la guitarra solista, espléndido resumen de las técnicas básicas para los solos.

Su humilde y elegante estilo, mezcla de gospel, jazz y blues del Delta, es un compendio perfecto entre expresión ritmica y sintesis melódica. Con tan solo cuatro o cinco notas colocadas en el lugar preciso es capaz de decirlo todo.

Esto, unido a un excelente control de bendings y prebendings a diferentes intervalos y a una técnica de vibrato, que involucra todo el antebrazo, constituye una firma sonora muy imitada pero nunca superada. Se centra en la pentatónica (aunque a menudo añade alguna nota fuera de la escala para dar un toque mas jazzero) en una posición del mástil y exprime cada una de las notas, consiguiendo que todas ellas adquieran un significado. Prefiere la expresividad a la rapidez, dando un caracter vocal a su fraseo.

Adrian Smith - Silver and Gold (Iron Maiden)

Adrian Smith(Adrian Frederik Smith, nacido el 27 de febrerode 1957 en Inglaterra es uno de los tres guitarristas en la banda británica de heavy metal Iron Maiden . Las primeras canciones de Smith compuestas para Maiden aparecen en el álbum de 1982 The Number of the Beast,y se convertiría en el segundo compositor de la banda a partir de entonces. El sonido de ambas guitarras principales de Adrian Smith y Dave Murray ayudó a forjar el sonido característico de Iron Maiden hasta su abandono en 1990. La probable marcha de Adrian pudo ser causada porque no le gustaba la dirección que estaba tomando la banda: después del álbum experimental Somewhere in Time y Seventh Son of a Seventh Son ,Steve Harris decidió retomar una vía de heavy metal más tradicional, más semejante a sus primeros discos; por esta disparidad de criterios Smith pudo haberse marchado. Adrian salió de Iron Maiden y sacó un LP en solitario con el nombre de ASAP(Adrian Smith and Project) titulado Silver and Gold en 1989.Más adelante tocó la guitarra en varios proyectos en solitario de Bruce Dickinson, que también dejó Maiden en 1994. En 1999 Adrian volvió a Iron Maiden para la gira "Ed Hunter" que promocionaba un videojuego del mismo nombre basado en la mascota de Iron Maiden Eddie. Antes de unirse a dicha gira, Adrian hizo prometer a Steve Harris que con su vuelta no le quitaría el sitio a Janick Gers(que había entrado para sustituirlo). Steve Harris aceptó y por eso las dos guitarras que tuvo en todos sus álbumes Iron Maiden se convirtieron en tres a partir del disco Brave New World.
Adrian todavía permanece en Iron Maiden desde entonces.

Released in 1989 during the Shrapnel Records shred metal heyday, this CD has been hard to acquire ever since. Prior to the album's release, at the age of 17, Richie had traveled back and forth across the United States, playing in excess of 500 shows. It was during that year that Richie released Richie Kotzen on Shrapnel Records and graced the cover of several publications including Guitar World Magazine. Richie's style on this recording travels across rock, fusion and shred, which was initially popularized by Greg Howe on his Shrapnel debut.

Whether you are an advance guitar player or a beginner you can only learn from this book. He starts with the basics but most of the time overlooked in how to warm -up and as you progress though the book you can see why warming-up is so important. John Petrucci can play the guitar faster than anyone I have ever seen but does not try to show off that speed in any of his lessons. I reccomend this to any one who plays guitar you will be glad you have it among you books.


Various Artists - Guitar Battle (George Lynch and John Petrucci )

March 29, 2001
Reviewer: Tim Lee (Orange County, CA)
This album was released in Japan for a reason and this reason is that the Japanese appreciate a good ass rocking guitar session.

George Lynch and John Petrucci come out as the most technical guitarists on this albums. Everyone else is stand by on rock and blues scales. Of course that would have been Lynch as well if it were not for his recent (1994) lessons at Guitar Institute of Technology in Los Angeles.

For once we also get to hear John Petrucci go improv as most of the Dream Theater series guitars have been mainly real hard studio work and composing. You can tell the difference in each guitarist as each uses his own unique sound on the album.

This is a must have both in session creativity and unique guitar theory for the avid guitar listener/fan. No, Greg Howe does not make a special appearance (though in my opinion, Greg and his star pupil, Prashant Aswani, excel above these sessioneers) in this album, but there is plenty to listen to otherwise like Andy Timmons, Brad Gillis, and Al Pitrelli (virtual unknowns in modern guitar).

Never before has there been such a collection of incredible guitarists on one album.

Metallica - Kirk hammet Every Album from 1983-2003

Metallica, seguramente, es el grupo de metal mas importante del planeta, por lo tanto haciendo un silogismo llegamos a la conclusion de que Kirk Hammet y James Hetfiled, son uno de los binomios guitarristicos mas importantes de todos los tiempos. Por ese motivo, es imposible hablar de Hammet sin incidir en la figura de Hetfield, y visceversa. James Hetfield, es sin nigun tipo de duda uno de los guitarristas ritmicos mas innovadores e influyentes de la historia del Heavy Metal. Los riffs de Hetfield, basados en la contundencia y en la velocidad, le han hecho convertirse en una de la figura clave a la hora de justificar la aparicion de algunas corrientes relativamente nuevas dentro del heavy metal.

Tony MacAlpine - Madness 1993

Tony Macalpine es uno más de esos "guitar hero" que habitan nuestro planeta, pero es más, él también es un mago del teclado, instrumento por el cuál es igualmente reconocido. Con un estilo, que a mí me gusta por ser muy heavy para lo que se suele estilar en este tipo de músicos, es capaz de sacar auténticos temazos y melodías. Un gran disco debut con Edge of Insanity, y el que para mí es su obra maestra hasta la fecha a falta de escuchar alguno de sus discos, "Freedom to Fly".

Marty Friedman - True Obsessions 1996

Solo disc number four for Marty. This disc see Marty dropping the new age and Eastern stylings, for the most part, in favor of a more rock/heavy metal approach. The disc starts off with a song that is very similar to the material on "Introduction" but picks up with "Espionage," which has a heavy Megadeth flare. "Rio" and "Farewell" are really the only mellow tracks. The album also adds a couple vocal tracks ("Last September" and "Live and Learn"). There are even some bluesy moments which is something Marty rarely experiments with. Disc number four shows no signs of weakness or slowing down. Marty is still one of the best guitarists in the scene.

Artista: Marty Friedman
Album: True Obsession
Año: 1996

Tack List:

1 Rio
2 espionage
3 last september

Marty Friedman - Introduction (Shrapnel) 1994

Marty Friedman has always been known as a shred-guitarist. When I picked up this disc I expected something more akin to his first solo shred-metal extravaganza "Dragon's Kiss" but rather what I got was a more experimental, laid back, almost new-age instrumental disc. Not a bad album by any stretch of the imagination, but it certainly was not what I was expecting either. Some of the music in this disc might make for a cool movie soundtrack. What makes the disc interesting, however, is the same creative songwriting that made "Dragon's Kiss" so intriguing. Marty knows how to write a song that grabs your attention and hold your interest. "Intermission" is great for late night play when I'm just kicking back.

1. "Arrival" (4:52)
2. "Bittersweet" (5:27)
3. "Be" (4:52)
4. "Escapism" (9:14)
5. "Luna" (5:18)
6. "Mama" (3:55)
7. "Loneliness" (4:08)
8. "Siberia" (4:19)

J.S Bach For Electric Guitar Book + Audio

Unlike many Bach editions for guitar, these transcriptions are meant to be performed using a pick. Although a few of the pieces may be played on a standard acoustic guitar, most require an electric guitar or a guitar with a cutaway. All pieces are in the original keys and their ranges may require notes as high as the twenty-second fret. Written in notation and tablature, these six pieces make great sight reading exercises. The included CD will prove an asset in learning these often challenging pieces.
