Nikolay Rimsky-Korsakov | Flight of the Bumblebee | Tab by Alexandra Zerner

If you follow my works, you should be aware of the cover I made of Nikolay Rimsky-Korsakov’s  Flight of the Bumblebee.

When I started learning it, I decided to use my own fingerings for this piece, which I transcribed for a 7-string guitar and I wrote it down on a Guitar Pro file. I made three versions:

Enjoy!!!

WeeklyckZ #27

This week I am presenting you one more extended range lick, and more specifically, a 7-string one. But this time it’s even more interesting, because it is also a hybrid picking lick, with string skipping. The lick is in Harmonic minor scale in F#m.

Enjoy, subscribe and share! 🙂

WeeklyckZ #25

Here’s another lick, taken from my debut album’s track, in this particular case – “For Esmé – With Love And Squalor”. In this video I am showing a 7-string minor arpeggio, played in 5/4 time signature on 16th notes, using hybrid picking technique. Keep in mind, that the guitar in the track is tuned whole step down.

Enjoy, subscribe and share! 🙂

WeeklyckZ #15

Due to the big interest, I did another extended range lick (7-string) before the planned WeeklyckZ #20, so if the course stays the same, you will enjoy ERG licks even more often 😉

The Seducer’s Diary – Official Music Video

After months of hearing my friends humming some melodies of my track “The Seducer’s Diary”, I decided, that this should be the first piece from the album to have a music video, so I and the director Boris Katzounov started discussing some ideas about the video. I had the idea, that there should be a storyline – a symbolic and metaphoric one, which had to reproduce what I felt, when reading the Kirkekaard’s book, but re-created nowadays – this task was wonderfully performed by Boris Katzounov, the cameraman Vladimir Bichev and the actors – Victoria Ivanova and Hristo Gebrev.

To avoid the monotonous storytelling, which wouldn’t correspond with the music’s dynamics, I thought it is best to rely on the classical approach to use black & white shots of a band playing, which gave the music video the dynamics needed, also the feel of a soundtrack from a movie, which was the main goal – thanks to the video editor Nikolina Atanasova. Because of the tough schedule of all the people, involved in the video, we had only about 3 hours of shooting, but we did it in time, so I am very grateful to all the crew, who supported this videoclip and made it happen – big thanks to all of you!

So, here is the video, so enjoy and share!

My interview for Shredddelicious and Truth In Shredding

Here are the links for my interview for Shreddelicious.com and TruthInShredding.com, that I recently had.

Very special thanks to Laurie Monk, who gave me this amazing opportunity!

I talk about my debut solo album “9 Stories”, music, gear and other interesting things, so enjoy and share! 🙂

 

9 Stories

Well, my debut album “9 Stories” is officially out and you can find it on the link below.

All I can say is, that this projects was a really hard task to perform, a 9-month musical adventure, where I had to compose, play and record every single instrument, which left me with almost no powers at the end. Luckily, I had the strenght to mix and master this epic (for me) production, so now you can enjoy it and eventually buy it, which would be great support to me, because I have no manager, no label and stuff and I am doing everything on my own.

Thanks in advance!

Here’s the link to my album in iTunes: 9 Stories

Hello, friends, fans or random passing strangers! 🙂 After the success of my #audio #sample, that I did last week of my track “A Perfect Day For Bananafish”, I decided to do and a #video #playthrough of another part of the track, because it is long and complicated enough to show it in just a one minute sample, so here you can see one more interesting fragment of the track, which… ok… I will share a little secred to you – it will be the opening track in my #upcoming #debut #solo #album “9 Stories”, so if you follow my topics here and my #facebook #page here, you’re now a little bit more familiar with the album background, tracks, etc. Also, I want to share with you, that in October, my album #9Stories will be available for #online #purchase, so stay in tune by visiting this site or my official facebook page.
