Richard Hallebeek

For people who like fusion with prominent guitar playing, the name Richard Hallebeek should sound familiar. His unique style and lyrical phrasing have solidified his position as one of the best within his genre, and have seen him collaborate with several jazz/fusion legends throughout his career.

Image

Alex Skolnick

Few guitar players of the world merit as much respect as Alex Skolnick. Originally gaining fame as the teenage phenomenon holding down guitar duties for Bay Area thrashers Testament, Alex has gone on to tackle multiple musical genres, including sophisticated jazz playing in his Alex Skolnick Trio. Check out Episode # 13 for more on Alex.

Image

Yngwie Rules!

ALSO known as: Lars Y. Loudamp and Yngwie J. Malmsteen; not to be confused with all of the other Yngwie Malmsteens of the world. Har! Be sure to listen to Episode # 12 for more on the legend himself!

Image

Uli Jon Roth

The musical career of Uli spans an amazing five decades.

As an artist, Uli is a multi faceted phenomenon whose unique set of artistic talents has gained him an international reputation as a musical visionary and innovator.

Give episode #11 a listen for more on Uli. Fun!

Image

TC Electronic MojoMojo Overdrive

This pedal should be on your pedalboard. Think thick, fat, clean, and sparkling overdrive. It's also affordable. Yay!

Who better to demo than Mr. Paul Gilbert?

Marty Friedman

We talk about Marty in this episode and his unique influence on guitar playing as a whole. There aren't many tasty players left like him, so give a listen to Episode # 10 and get my take on this amazing musician. Cool stuff!

Image

Cacophony

The first album from Cacophony: Speed Metal Symphony.  Marty and Jason are pictured here with Moridira Hurricane Ltd series guitars. I think Kiesel tried to put Jason's into production but that didn't last too long. Dang!
