Improvising Through The Changes

Be sure to check out Derryl's new Chops from Hell instructional release "Visions & Dreams - Part I".

Derryl's fourth column at the site is a performance clip. Derryl has got some truly smokin' chops, as well as being harmonically terrifying, both of which can really be appreciated by watching him in action! For more about Derryl, be sure to visit his site. This performance clip is from a song called "Friends" from Derryl's Visions and Dreams album. This video in its entirety, along with others, will be available on an upcoming Derryl Gabel CD rom from Chops from Hell. Check back here at CFH for details and release date. The video on the CD rom will be of much higher resolution, better quality, and much larger picture, with stereo sound. We've had to reduce these factors for this example to decrease the file size for the band-width challenged. The clip is roughly 1:30 in length and weighs in around 2.3MB.

the following bio material from Derry Gabel's website

Derryl Gabel was born in 1970 and has been playing guitar since the age of 15. Derryl was featured on the 1992 George Lynch solo CD "Sacred Groove." Derryl beat out several other guitarists in a contest to win this coveted opportunity. He was also featured on the 1994's "Guitar on the Edge #4" performing "Blue Fingers." In 1995 Derryl's "Nathaniel" (later renamed "Song For Jessie") was featured on "Guitar on the Edge #5".

Magazines which have covered Derryl's music include: "Guitar World" Sept. '90 (page 124), "Guitar for the Practicing Musician" May 1992 (page 168), and again in "G..P..M" Oct 1992 (page 11) and in Oct 1993 (pages 93 & 150)
