This song is the progressive rock type of music. I used all my different Stratocaster guitars to record it. I played the main part with my Fender Modern Player HSH. I played the second part with my custom scalloped Stratocaster featuring a Lace pickguard. I played the third part on my second custom scalloped Stratocaster featuring a Seymour Duncan pickguard. Finally, I played some cunter-melody was my Squier Stratocaster using a Noise Box effect from Subdecay. The song is mainly in 5/4 rhythm. During the main part in 5/4, I am playing around metrics to displace the downbeat. The bridge [More]
Funk That Map is the song I used in the demo of the Airline Map from Eastwood Guitars. Well, in the video review I improvise over the background sequence. It’s not the same version as this one. In the video review, I used only an extract of the song (the A part) I improvised on to demonstrate the guitar possibilities. That is the full studio version of Funk That Map. I used two different guitars to record it. I performed the solo part with the Airline Map from Eastwood Guitars. I played the two rhythm parts with a Stratocaster guitar [More]
The song is a medium shuffle at 120 BPM. I wrote it somewhere around 1991. I don’t remember exactly, but it’s not that important. I performed it live with the French trio I formed in the late 90. I played the main part with the Airline Map from Eastwood Guitars. I like that guitar pretty much, especially for that type of music where I require a distorted sound, but without being too much rock ‘n roll. A Stratocaster would’ve been to treble. The hollow body of the Airline Map gives that mellow sound I like and need to perform fusion [More]
I wrote that song in 1991. I played it for a long time with my French trio. It was quite a blast to play to live because the song got a lot of energies. Except the middle part in 7/4, it is pretty straightforward 4/4. There are three different part in the song. The first one is a rhythm and blues groove inspired by a Brecker Brothers song called   “If you Wanna boogie.” The second part is a basic four power chords rock ‘n roll’ suite. Finally, the third part is a 7/4 pattern. I performed it using my custom-made [More]
I composed this piece not too long ago for a demo of the Fender Squier Bullet Strat HSS. I thought it fit perfectly with the Stratocaster sound. I named the tune Jeronimo, spelled with a J, not because I am an ignorant, but in honor of drummer Jerome Antonuccio, who gave me the drum groove. I took this old midi track, and I recorded the final cut in few hours only. The song is deliberately very simple. There are four parts: A drum part, a bass part I played on my Fender Bass VI Modified, and two strat parts. A [More]
