5/18/08. New video up
Most of the sound clips are from my newest CD, "Aum"; available at www.Guitar9.com
"Emberfall". New clip 2-26-08. This is a rough demo version of a new song i'm working on for the upcoming CD. Remember it's ROUGH and far from the final version, and at 5mins plus it's still only part of the song.
New clip up called "Change the World" from my old band. i put it up because i like the tune alot and it's going to be re done (better, stronger, faster) for the upcoming CD i'm writing now. Greg Kalember's fingers on the drums and Rob Fiorentino on bass. Hope ya like it.
Also. i teach in the White Plains, NY area. i have a few openings right now; if you live around the area and are interested, let me know.
The Alchemists II has just been released. It's a compilation of guitatists from Liqid Note Records. Tons of amaizing players, if you're a fan of virtuosic guitar playing. i contributed a track with current Guns and Roses guitarist Bumblefoot (aka Ron Thal).
A brief list of various stuff i've done ( i won't even get into my careers in Astrophysics, world peace, pirating, shark wrestling and a tenure as a triple secret agent for the British government).
