Video posted in Yamaha Corporation ( Japan )
A few days ago the Official International Yamaha’s Youtube channel has released a video that I have recorded from my SG1820. It's a joy that a video of my work is posted on the Japan’s channel, even if it has international repercussions. I hope it's the first of many others. You can make me all kinds of questions about the instrument to my mail.
Of course I have used one of my Mesa Boogies for the video; in this case the protagonist was the 5:50 Express plus, using the clean channel with the Caravan Distortion from www.triton-lab.com and the Crunch channel at some times.

2013 NEWS V
It is here!
Fresh out of the factory; We just got the records of "Sin palabras".
Ten singles, libretto of 24 pages with pictures, illustrations, lyrics and credits, etc. It is now available on the tab Store. It can be purchased there online or in the Sonic Boom stores. Samples of all the tracks of the album can be played on the Media section.
Record 'Sin Palabras’
One and a half years have already passed by since I started the composition of the different songs, back in July 2011. I can finally present my first record as a soloist, entitled “Sin Palabras”"Without words". It is an instrumental CD with ten tracks, which mixes funk and jazz rock. Every track is like a short film, where the story has been reflected in its title. In the booklet of the CD, I briefly explain what each of them meant to me. In addition a handmade accompanying illustration recreates the content. Although I suppose that each of you will get their own sequence of images and sensations. That is exactly the objective: that each listener can be subjected to hour of images, emotions and sensations.
In addition to the obvious meaning, I gave it the title of “Sin palabras” because I didn’t want to be explicit or reveal the content in the lyrics. I wanted to leave the content as open as possible so imagination is free to fly high. The record can be the soundtrack of many different stories.
No one does anything in this world without external help, otherwise, our ideas would always remain just that: ideas. I have been lucky enough to count with the collaboration of a group of people who made this journey very special. Without them, it would have been the same. You can see below information about all musicians and collaborators that made this possible.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. Thank you

Joining the family of Yamaha Artists

Boggie Board New endorser
In the last few days I became part of the Boogie Board family. This well-known brand of handmade amplifiers from Petaluma, Calif., has given me the endorsement with the model that I have chosen, the Lonestar classic combo format 2 x 12. It is an impressive amplifier that will make sure the live launch of my first record as a soloist "Sin Palabras” will sound really good.
I would like to thank Patrick Criado de Sadepra for kindly helping with the endorsement process and answering all my questions. We know each other for many years and he was the first one to introduce me around five years ago to the German Lakewood acoustic guitars, which are also hand crafted. I have used my Custom D-32 model for the singles “Sin Palabras” ("Without words") and "Invierno en Eihei-ji” (Winter in Eihei-ji".)
I will soon make the link available on the Mesa (board) page, so anybody can access the photos from the artists tab.
Daniel Copquin joins the band
Daniel Copquin has just joined the band. He is an excellent Argentine bassist with extensive experience, both in Argentina and Europe. Besides having been lecturer of Berklee in Buenos Aires, and played as bassist for Luis Salinas, etc., Daniel is a musician with many qualities. Therefore, his contribution to the band will certainly be very valuable.
While waiting for the person that will become the piano player and fourth member of our band, we have begun rehearsals and focused our live performance on the three-member band. We have already recorded Miguel Simancas work, to avoid delaying too much underway live performances.
Zebendrums, Youtube channel with a huge number of monthly visits
My buddy and drums player Zebensui Rodriguez is unstoppable. His YouTube channel broadcasting drums lessons (http://www.youtube.com/user/Zebendrums1/videos) enjoys nearly 700 subscribers and more than 32,000 visits in only five months. The video recording and editing is carried out by Diego del Monte Nieto. The result of this initiative is so positive that a drums and percussionist website shares the videos weekly and links directly to Zebendrums.
