Adam Fulara

Two-Handed Instrumental Fusion

"Adam Fulara is anxious and seeking nature with passion." So stated one reviewer when describing the two-handed tapping fusion of Polish guitarist Adam Fulara. Fulara submitted a three-song demo CD-R recorded in 2005 with the Fool-X Trio. On it you'll hear crystal clear examples of how Fulara is turning heads with his unique approach to guitar playing, tapping harmony and solos at the same time, or contrapuntal solos based on the jazz tradition and J. S. Bach's music, or sometimes delivering a walking bass line and chords when the bass player plays solo. Fulara uses a double neck guitar, making his stage presence all that more interesting (which is just a bonus, because his skill at playing is so advanced and attention grabbing). Already seen as highly influential both in Poland and abroad, it is now up to fusion audiences around the globe to discover this superb musician. Adam Fulara was originally profiled in the April-May, 2006 edition of The Undiscovered.

alb Adam is 27 years old and currently lives in Ostrzeszow, Poland, and is a Computer Science/Electrical Engineering graduate from Wroclaw University. His main hobby is music, and has been making music for 15 years, starting as an accordion and piano player. When he was in the fifth grade, he took up the guitar. At first, Adam played rock music (Steve Vai, Yngwie Malmsteen, Joe Satriani, Marty Friedman) with his own band and he gigged frequently, on occasion opening for famous Polish bands like Houk or Armia. When he was 18, he started to play the guitar with the two-hand tapping technique. He has been using the two-hand tapping technique for seven years now, and uses a 6-string hand-made guitar (he can't afford a special tap guitar, like a 8, 12 or 16-string "stick" or "warr"). Adam also plays a special tap-guitar, made according to his own specifications (double neck).

Currently, Fulara plays with his jazz trio (tap-guitar, bass and drums). They play jazz standards and their own compositions. He plays classical music as well (Bach, Chopin and Beethoven) but in the future he wants to play only Bach tunes.

Greatest Unsigned Rock Band

Renowned guitarist Ron Sachs, vocalist Kevin Jones and drummer Dave White together with Jon Wilson on bass make up Rattleface, billed as "the greatest unsigned rock band on the planet". Their third album, Second House On The Left, delivers blistering guitars and ripping vocals in the metal style popularized by Zakk Wylde-era Ozzy Osbourne's band. Sachs blends a hyper-speed approach with an advanced melodic sense, pushing his Flying V to its sonic limits. Tapping, legato licks, double-picking, and wah-wah drenched solos alternate with the mega-crunch with which Sachs supports his verses and choruses. If you're wondering what the heck happened to all the heavy music out there, remember it's bands such as Rattleface that continue to fly the flag for the metal minions. Modifyde were originally profiled in the June-July, 2006 edition of The Undiscovered.

pic In September of 2001 Rattleface entered Sachs' studio, The X-Room to record their first album "Freak of Nature". Rattleface's first release features the guitarist soaring to heights many players strive for and captures his unique style of rock, metal and blues with his classical and flamenco influences. Rattleface's second album "Hard Times", an album that must be heard to believed, was released in August of 2004. The band added bassist Jon Wilson midway through the recording of their second album "Hard Times", and he has turned out to be one of the most musical and aggressive bassists you're likely to hear.

Rattleface is currently seeking international distribution, professional management, legal representation and innovative marketing in today's music industry.
