This is really cool - you seem to be playing one thing, then jump to something else and then unexpectedly dart down some back street - then you knock over a bunch of trash cans that slow me down from trying to keep from following what you're doing as you take off down some alley way and into the night. Well, that's what I was imagining in my head as I listened. I don't know much about Zappa, but after hearing this I gotta check some out!
Back for annuva listen
I hear the Sheik Yerbouti style of Big Frank especially at about the minute mark or just a tad over. Dead good this dude. Oh yeah 1min 36 and it's got that vibe real cool. Great final 30 dude. Rated (as if there was any doubt)
I really enjoyed this, it's got all the twists and turns of a Zappa track. I think you've done a pretty good job.
Maybe not just brighten the guitar, just up the top end on the master eq and it'll be top banana. Zappa-tastic. Some fantastic playing there. Really good riffs. Love the varied drums and percussion, again, very Zappa. The last note is a particularly enjoyable little chunk which I find incredibly agreeable. Fantastic tune, just brighten it up, get some Anti-Bush lyrics and you're onto a winner. Rated.
Some really cool and imaginative ideas. Got a Vai vibe from it who obviously had a lot of influence from Zappa . The lead guitar is a little muffled and low in the mix. Brighten it eq wise and bring it up a touch. Rated.
Great Track !
squeeze me...billy was a mountain.....got it mixed up with flo and eddie. Senior moment. Wonderful track Kelly. The first riff was classic zap man.
Terrific guitar playing. Always something in this track to keep the interest - great bline - excellent perx - For a long time I haven't listened to guitar based music - think you have whetted my appetite. Really good this.
Did I tell you I was a dental floss tychoon? The Zap Man re-incarnated. I remember "Eddie was a Moutain", The Grand Wahzoo and his later stuff (saw him twice on new years eve in long beach, ca.. What a guitarist. Zappa too.....:-)..R
Gday kelly, little Hot Rats running around ( only FZ album I can think of the name at moment lol) Certainly frantic and seems to work ok for me because I am not techo savvy enough to pick the nuances. I either enjoy or not in most cases and I enjoyed as I have with most of your work,rated and cheers mate.
Fusion has been my genre of choice for several years, but I am also inspired by rock, jazz, blues and most recently, metal.
My recording/mixing skills have yet to be acquired, my playing is at best sub-par, but my enthusiam for creating music shall never waiver.
The bulk of my future lies in Alternative Metal. I have recently gained a keen interest in creating that crunch! I have no real "Rock Star" aspirations, but enjoy engaging in collabs to create something new and different.
I also build custom guitars. Please view my artists gallery for a look at some of my projects.
<pre>Cryin: I think I must go around with my head in my ass sometimes...I don't remember listening to yor music before and it's just fabulous, Kelly...damn I am so impressed...you and Joseph have a lot in common...take a nom!! dawnsinclair - 16 May 2008
This is beautiful and dramatic music - it is obvious that you love playing it - every note is wonderful. MoonTurnedBlue - 27 July 2008
Cause We've Ended as Lovers: Great soulful guitar playing! Always interesting. Rated.Cheers, Smudge from Smudgie aswann - 03 November 2007
Insanity: Wow Kelly, this is awesome! Love the mix of guitar and electronica, the sweeps are spot on an there is also some lovelt whammy bar work in there. Love the Eastern feel again - have a soft spot for the harmonic minor and arabian sounds. Cool tones too, really look forward to hearing the completed version. PM me when it's up!

Superhumnan's Phantasm: God Kelly. How I have missed you on this site eludes me. Seems everyone knows who you are. If I didn't need to head off to work I would have a new album to listen to. Be back and thanks for the DL's. Rated. Beluga - 08 May 2008

This is one is quite different for Kelly, given the electro slant. I liked this track the first time I heard it, although there are a couple of rough edits the track flows in a nice unusual way.
The track open with Kelly's signiture use of the whammy bar - something that is not easy to do at all. I really love the little diminished run followed by a more traditional solo break. Over the yea
This really blew me away, you can tell there is a lot of passion in what is being played. Element of several bands i loved came through, Sabbath being the first feel i noticed.I'd love to see something like this on Guitar Heroes, largely cos i'm no where near that good on guitar and like pretending i am(hey its cooler than air guitaring)Top notch stuff#:)
For a newbie/beginner, the composition is conceived well, and the arrangement was laid out in a thoughtful manner. I can hear a lot of the influences you mention on your page, but you do not call special attention to any of them, which is always a good thing for a player of your level.
There are enough genres/styles blended in to make this tune interesting to other devotees of jazz fusion, prog r
This tune had me fooled for the first 8 bars or so. I thought it was a totally generic jazz track that some wanna-be would be adding his licks to. What I got instead was a truly artistic contribution to a rather basic jazz rhytm section that turned this generic into a genre that needs to be focused on. What was jazz fusion is no longer con-fusion with this artist. Rock meets Jazz meets Acid
While this track left no doubt as to why the composer named it as such, I must say that without a structured tempo as well as the frequent non-timed breaks throughout the piece I found it difficult to gather in the full emotion of the artist. Great sound and unique effects give homage to this artists influences, but needs more structure in this reviewers opinion.
