Jason Stewart

A Heaping Helping Of Shredded Bliss

Did you get your U.S.D.A. recommended dose of shred today? How about enough shred to help build strong bones and teeth? If not, spin Jason Stewart's demo CD-R Alien Funk (forget about the funk part), and go for a heaping helping of shredded bliss. This New Mexico area instrumental guitarist has taken both Phrygian and friggin' licks to the next level, jamming over beat box grooves with his own brand of liquid fire. Walloping guitar harmonies. muted lines and a squalling, highly overdriven, hyper-compressed sound are just some of the trademarks of Stewart's production, as well as the fiery, alternate-picked, guitar maelstrom he unleashes at the drop of a hat. The appropriately named "Frenzy" is a great place to start, as you'll tie your poor fingers in knots attempting to air guitar along with the record. No limits here on guitar technique, just a little boost in the production department and Stewart will make new legions of shred fans delirious with joy. Jason Stewart was originally profiled in the June-July, 2004 edition of The Undiscovered.

alb Originally into '60s/'70s bands such as Pink Floyd, the Eagles and Jimi Hendrix, Jason found himself being more and more influenced by accomplished guitarists such as Eddie Van Halen, Chet Atkins and Randy Rhoads. In his late teens he delved more into shredders such as Greg Howe, Joe Satriani and Steve Vai. Jason started playing guitar at age 14, and the instrument quickly became an unstoppable obsession. He took every guitar class possible in high school, and later took private lessons with a jazz teacher. Jason comes from a musical family, but is convinced he would have eventually gravitated towards some form of artful expression. He has already built up a catalog of over 500 recorded songs.

Stewart would love to cover as many bases as possible in his musical career - touring, writing for movies, television and video games, or composing material for other musicians. "The only limits are those which you impose upon yourself," he notes, philosophically.

Wayde Cooper

Warp-Speed Washington Shredder

That flurry of double-picked, legato and swept lines you're hearing in your head may be headed your way from Washington State, as shredder Wayde Cooper bids to "dedicate the totality of his physical gifts and scientific genius to the creation of a better world for all musicians!" He submitted his CD-R release Off The Hook, a sonic treat of metal, hard rock and general heaviosity that will have fans of melodic groove soloing heading for the exits, and fans of all-out, balls-to-the-wall shred soloing clamoring to get in the front row to witness Cooper's flying fingers. The all instrumental album features eleven tracks, and if each track doesn't impress you with its massive display of burning, in-your-face, up-your-nose, eardrum-slamming, cerebrum-piercing guitar solos - well then, you must not be as big a shred enthusiast as you first thought. Off The Hook - a snarling, uncompromising monument to furious fretwork. Wayde Cooper was originally profiled in the June-July, 2004 edition of The Undiscovered.

pic Wayde has released five CDs of doom on Fossil Records and one instructional CD ROM of terror on Chops From Hell. He also appeared in Mike Varney's Hometown Heroes column ten years ago, in the March 1994 issue of Guitar World magazine, and has been involved with the Seattle music scene since 1999. Wayde possesses all of the 80's and 90's guitar hero powers - with even greater strength. He can disguise himself to look like any person he can imagine, and is invisible to the mass public. His fingers can rip out arpeggios at lighting speed plus he is capable of legato combat fighting utilizing string skipping to outwit his opponents. His 32nd note runs allow him to keep up with his adversaries with ease. And if that's not enough, Wayde's ultra earth shaking rhythm of terror can stop people in their tracks every time.

Cooper has endorsements with both Seymour Duncan and Morley Pedals, and is currently rehearsing songs with fellow Washington guitarist Jeffrey Ryan Smoots for the Smoots-Cooper-Reindel Project.
