    Centrifugal Funk - Tokyo Blue

    7:23

    Recently reissued by Tone Center for 2004, this 1991 Legato Records release of MVP (The Mark Varney Project), Centrifugal Funk, displays a warning, Contains guitar performances of unparalleled speed, taste and virtuosity. Not for the faint of heart! The lead guitar performances spoken about in such glowing terms are turned in by none other than Brett Garsed (lead guitar), Shawn Lane (lead guitar) and Frank Gambale (lead guitar). Mark Varney and Jimmy Earl produced the album of eight instrumentals, two of which (Love Struck and So What, both clocking in at over eight minutes) feature all three gutiarists. The album also features Mike O'Neill on rhythm guitar, Steve Tavaglione on sax, Freddy Ravel on keyboards, Jimmy Earl on bass (he takes a solo on So What), Joey Heredia on drums and Kevin Ricard on percussion. T.J. Helmerich also makes an appearance on guitar, cuttiing the first solo on Love Struck. Mesmerizing, extreme, attention-grabbing, aggressive, thrilling - all have been used to describe the music on Centrifugal Funk - and, like it's companion record Truth In Shredding, recommended for fans ranging from fusion to progressive to jazz.

    Frank Gambale - Lead Guitar
    Brett Garsed - Lead Guitar
    Shawn Lane - Lead Guitar
    Mike O`Neill - Rhythm Guitar
    T.J. Helmerich - Lead Guitar, Remastering

    Rocks - Allan Holdsworth solo

    Rocks is a Brecker Brothers cover from the M.V.P album Truth In Shredding.

    This was the hardest solo transcription I've ever done but I wanted to do this in Allans memory as he was and is a great musical hero to me. He was a true genius!

    P.S. Thanks to all the subscribers for sticking with me! I haven't been too active lately but I'll try my best to get new videos and maybe original material here this fall! Can't wait to share it with you good people :)

    P.P.S. Also got the new Steinberger Spirit while I was in Japan. How cool is that thing?! :D

    Rocks - The Brecker Brothers

    5:35

    MIDI FILES as backing tracks. This is trancribed and rerecorded in MIDI format from the well known album Thruth in Shredding. This version includes only first guitar solo as played by Frank Gambale. There will be full version with 2:nd Solo later on ...
    The last chorus of guitar solo is very hard to hear on original album when transcribing. Therefore the 3:rd chorus includs a small repeat of 2:nd chorus as orginally played thue to this audio difficulty. Otherwise the transcription and rerecording MIDI Files are done as played originally on the album (with some keyborad variation).
    A soon as I have the time, I will rehearsel and upload the song as a live gig from my home studio. Thank You for watching.
