Alex masi - In The Name Of Bach

Lovers of the music of Johann Sebastian Bach and the guitar should check out Italian guitarist Alex Masi's In The Name Of Bach. Forget enjoying Bach's pieces only on violin or keyboard, this CD is all guitar. Masi performs the majority of the 15 pieces on Manne Semiacoustica guitars (acoustic), but four of the pieces feature Masi blazing through prestos, toccatas and fugues on Rostrum electric guitars. One selection, "Presto From Violin Sonata #1 in G Minor BWV 1001" is an all electric guitar solo piece which Masi gives the metal edge to with an overdriven sound. Bach's unforgettable "Toccata And Fugue In D Minor BWV 565" is rendered with both electric and acoustic guitars, and Masi conveys the power and brilliance of the piece with his arrangement. No bass, no drums -- In The Name Of Bach is Masi's all guitar tribute tothese masterworks. Instrumental Guitar (Classical/Neo-Classical Metal), total running time, 57:50

Yngwie J. Malmsteen - Trilogy

Trilogy continued the fine axemanship and overall heaviness of the earlier Malmsteen albums, only this time with Yngwie playing all bass guitar and featuring Mark Boals on vocals. In addition to some of metaldom's best vocal tracks of the mid '80s ("You Don't Remember, I'll Never Forget", "Queen In Love", "Fire"), Trilogy features two killer instrumental tracks, "Crying" and "Trilogy Suite Op: 5" and was both produced and "conducted" by Yngwie himself. Kind of an appropriate title, as this was Malmsteen's third solo release, and he would go into a more hard rock direction on his next recording, "Odyssey". Neo-Classical Metal/Shred, total running time, 40:40 - Yngwie J. Malmsteen @ iTunes!

Danger Danger - Down And Dirty Live!

Danger Danger was a band of handsome hard rockers that made pop friendly metal similar in style to Bon Jovi. The band had minor success, but like several other groups of this era, just never seemed to be able to push themselves over the top.
Bruno Ravel (bass), Steve West (drums) and Kasey Smith (keyboards) formed Danger Danger in New York the late 80's. The band recorded demos, but it wasn't until the addition of vocalist Ted Poley that the music industry began to recognize the group. They began recording the self-titled debut with Saraya guitarist Tony Bruno before Andy Timmons joined the band and finished the remaining guitar tracks. The record would prove to be Danger Danger's most successful, as it included the Top 50 single "Bang Bang". Screw It!, which would turn out to be less successful then the debut, saw more of an emphasis on Timmons' guitar work and less on Smith's keyboards, and as a result he left the band before work on the third album began.

Track List:
01. Boys Will Be Boys
02. Bang Bang
03. Groove Or Die
04. Naughty Naughty
05. Rock and Roll Hoochie Koo

Ted Poley - vocals
Andy Timmons - guitar
Bruno Ravel - bass
Steve West - drums
Kasey Smith - keyboards

Produced by Lennie Petze.

Greg Howe - Parallax

Reminiscent at times of Tribal Tech and Chick Corea's bands, Greg Howe's Parallax is comprised of aggressive rock/fusion compositions which highlight Howe�s incredible command of the guitar. More funk oriented and syncopated than Howe's three previous recordings, Howe serves up a heavy yet unpredictable combination of '90s high tech guitar blended with '70s fusion influences. Parallax standouts include "Roundhouse", "Time Off" and "Howe 'Bout It" - three gems among the nine melodically intense instrumental workouts. Instrumental Guitar (Electric (Heavy)/Fusion/Shred), total running time, 46:43

Buckethead - Electric Tears (Guitar Instrumental)

Proving he's a complete guitarist capable of more than his incredible shredded playing style, the CD Electric Tears allows the listener to experience the haunting, beautiful and ethereal side of Buckethead, described by the likes of Bootsie Collins, Bill Laswell and Santana as a phenomenal guitar player. Laswell has noted, �He�s not limited in the way that nine out of ten rock guitarists are." Bootsy Collins remarks, "Wow!! Keep up the abnormal work because normal work becomes a job...Did I mention that Buckethead also is my greatest friend and the rippinest guitarist in the whole dang universe?" Buckethead handles all the instrumentation on the album, which is 95% guitar. Another totally creative work. Instrumental Guitar (Electric/Rock), total running time, 71:01

I hope you get as big of a rush listening to it as I do." For a fascianting glimpse of immense talent in the rough and raw, check out the 25 raspberry jams contained on this CD.

Dixie Dregs - Night Of The Living Dregs 1979


1. Punk Sandwich
2. Country House Shuffle
3. The Riff Raff
4. Long Slow Distance
5. Night of the Living Dregs
6. The Bash
7. Leprechaun Promenade
8. Parchwork


* Steve Morse: guitarras
* Andy West: bajos
* Rod Morgenstein: bateria
* Allen Sloane: violines
* Mark Parrish: teclados

Este es el cuarto disco del ensamble jazz rock Dixie Dregs, el mismo que es ahora toda una leyenda para muchas bandas nuevas que se han dejado influir por su colorida onda alimentada por la marca peculiar del jazz añejo, las vicisitudes del jazz fusion (particularmente el lado mas festivo de Return to Forever y Weather Report), y el fuego peculiar del country, todo ello sazonado con algunos sabores de corte hard rock. Los cuatro ultimos temas de este disco son tomados de la performance que realizaron en Julio de 1978, en el contexto del Festival Internacional de Jazz en Montreux: las ovaciones que se escuchan al final de cada tema pueden muy bien ser interpretadas como muestras merecidas de elogio para una banda que combina la majestad de la solvencia tecnica con el impetu emocional de un material que parece estar siempre dispuesto para transmitir alegria y entusiasmo. El rol efectivo de la talentosa dupla ritmica Morgenstein/West resulta crucial a la hora de sostener este clima general de vitalidad pulcramente efectuado.

‘Punk Sandwich’ abre el disco con un inconfundible aire rocanrolero que sirve de base para los bien articulados dialogos entre Morse y Sloane, mientras que ‘Country House Shuffle’ se enraiza mas patentemente en el factor country, con un Sloane asumiendo el rol protagonico con una limpieza notable. ‘The Riff Raff’ es un evocativo dueto de violin y guitarra acustica elaborado al modo de un nocturno en clave de jazz, con un tono crepuscular e introspectivo que resulta cautivante, con un encanto sutilmente atrapante. La onda melancolica persiste en el siguiente tema, ahora con el quinteto funcionando en bloque con un toque de magia influido por el mejor Jean-Luc Ponty: este toque de magia se apoya buenamente en las bien delineadas cortinas de teclado provistas por Parrish.

Vinnie Vincent - The E.P - Euphoria

Vincent Cusano, al más puro estilo Homer Simpson quería cambiar su nombre por uno que tuviera más fuerza, por lo que pensó en MIKE FURY. Lamentablemente, le convencieron para que se pusiera el más convencional Vinnie Vincent. El pequeño hombre compondrá alguno de los mejores temas de Creatures of the night (como Love it loud) y cubrirá las espaldas de Space Ace. Y aunque su nombre aparece en los créditos, en la portada su ego sufrió un duro golpe, pues su lugar lo ocupó un desorientado Frehley, cosas del marketing. Más tarde se editaría el disco con una cutre-portada donde sí aparecía Vincent, pero los fans preferimos la original y falsa. En la gira del disco ya se incorporaría como miembro oficial en lugar del hombre del espacio, perdido en alguna galaxia lejana…

Cusano entró en la última etapa con maquillaje de Kiss, por lo que tuvo que buscarse su propia identidad. A diferencia de Tommy Thayer, que trata de suplantar ahora a Ace como si de un vulgar impersonator se tratase, Vincent eligió una cruz egipcia (ankh dorada) como símbolo místico, muy apropiada para él. La llevó muy poco tiempo, pues Kiss pronto se despojarían del maquillaje, pero la recuperó en 1996, en Kiss Expos, tocando junto a bandas tributo, hasta que los abogados del grupo le prohibieron hacerlo.

El estilo de Vincent con la guitarra en nada se parecía al de Ace. Mientras Space Ace partía del hard rock y mostraba su fanatismo por los Rolling Stones, Cusano era el típico guitar-hero metalero, de esos que se emocionan con los complicados solos, la rapidez de dedos y el aumento progresivo de notas. Con Cusano, Kiss se volvieron jevis, así de claro. Y en parte es culpa suya que todavía las criaturas de la noche aparezcan en la Heavy Rock, Metal Hammer y revistas del ramo. Vamos, que no es más que una víctima del metal. Sin embargo, Vincent sólo grabaría un disco más con la banda, Lick it up, ya sin maquillaje… Es decir, sin disfraces, porque maquillaje seguían utilizando, incluso más que antes. A reivindicar sin duda la imagen del grupo entonces, con esos videoclips super horteras totalmente desfasados, como debe ser.

Though guitarist John Norum was a major part of Countdown-era Europe, he left the band -- just before its worldwide success -- as a reaction to its growing commercial sensibilities. He began recording a solo album, with vocalist Goran Edman, drummer Peter Hermansson and bassist Marcel Jacob; the result was 1987's Total Control. He recorded the live album Live in Stockholm the following year, collaborated with Don Dokken and recorded a second studio album in 1992, Face the Truth. ~ John Bush, All Music Guide

Paul Gilbert's Terrifying Guitar Trip, Guitar Instructional Video

Inspiring and informative coverage of Paul Gilbert's playing, February 5, 1999
Reviewer: A viewer
This 75 minute video of Paul Gilbert's guitar playing consists of instructional, showcase and interview material intermixed. The instructional parts feature Paul explaining and playing examples at various speeds. The showcase parts show him playing live, in the studio, and directly for the camera. The 'interview' parts show him talking while floating in a pool on a raft with his dogs.

I was surprised at first because I thought that the whole 75 minutes was going to be instructional. I'm glad it includes showcase material because it's totally amazing to watch, but some of the talking is just boring filler (e.g. a long, uninteresting story about Paul working with a producer). They should consolidate the instructional and showcase sections at the beginning of the tape so you don't have to fast forward through the rest.

The instructional sections are top-notch. Paul is mostly on electric guitar but he also does a flamenco-style piece on a classical guitar and a little acoustic stuff. He also goes over licks from some Mr. Big songs, including the opening to Colorado Bulldog, which he rightly calls "probably the scariest thing I've done." These parts rate 5.

The quality of the showcase footage varies from crystal clear audio and video in the first piece (which together which the flamenco style piece already makes the video worth buying) to poorly mixed drum-heavy shots in a dim studio. All in all, these parts get a 4.5.

In the chatty sections, Paul gives good advice for players but some parts basically can't be seen more than once. Collectively they get a 3 and fortunately don't last too long. I would have liked to see him describe his rig.

I highly recommend this video to all rock guitar players. It has the coolest guitar playing I've ever seen, totally blows me away every time, and teaches some great licks step by step.
