They're all I've been rocking the last week. Love em both
I'm enjoying this album but after a few listens, it does feel much like a Metalcore album without vocals, and less of a 'solo' album.
I think I was expecting a more traditional lead guitar based album but with modern riffage aka Heavy Metal Ninjas.
Regardless, it's a cool album.
In the documentary video and in recent interviews he said he wanted to step away from the typical lead guitar album and do something different. To him the guitars aren't even the biggest part which was quite shocking.
Its insane how well this album has done. The indiegogo got 138% funded, then thousands of pre-orders and first day sales pushed it into the top 10 in various iTunes charts with everybody talking about it over FB, instagram and various forums.
Yea, he that the guitars weren't the biggest part or very important to him, but that just seems ridiculous IMO. This album is 90% guitar, and the guitars lead the charge in every instance apart from the beginning of Chapter II.
I don't get why he was trying to downplay it so much, unless he just REALLY wanted people to focus on the other aspects.
Bwow bwownbwownbwown babwown babwoooOOOOOooown
Sorry, the main theme of Ho's Down is stuck in my head.
I can't stop listening to the album and there's not really one reason I can point as to why, but it's just a really good album. Well done Jason.
Has anyone gotten their indigogo perks yet? The wait is killing me!
Jason posted yesterday about selling over 7200 copies in the first week. That's pretty killer, major congrats to him.
Thats insane considering so many people would have bought the album through the indie-go-go campaign! Hopefully that encourages him to go on tour.
Anybody got their tab books yet? I'm itchin'
No but I want my damn vinyl already.
Tab books are shipping out mid August I think.
Someone asked him in a thread on twitter about a tour and he replied with a smiley/wink face, so it's probably in the works.
He posted a video on instagram of Luke and him playing Retrograde last night. I really hope he tours!
Anyone get the indigogo perks yet?
Tab books are shipping out now! Just got my confirmation. And I'm up to 8th notes at 80 BPM on one of his lessons. So I should be able to play about 4 seconds of the album!
My tab book arrived this morning. Some parts are just ridiculous. I'm not even sure where to start.
^ Whoah, awesome! How to Torture Your Left Fingers: A Complete Guide would have been a more apt title for the notation book though. What parts, at first sight, look most frightening?
Nice! What are the tunings if you don't mind me asking? I know most is Drop A or G I suppose but curious what they all are!
I still haven't gone through every song but Hos Down is just insane. So is the crazy shred bit in Titan, The sweeps in XV are just ridiculous and Breaking Damnation is a lot harder than it sounds. Everything is that little bit uncomfortably fast and he uses some very odd shapes and positions so I really need to get my chops up. I don't know how he commits all those crazy riffs across all the string strings to memory.
Everything is in Drop G apart from Hos Down in Drop A and Tonga which is an 8 string in Drop-E.
