"New Sounds Album Review"

With his third album, this 17 year old guitarist from Guatemala displays talent way beyond his years and this virtuoso axe man is starting to catch the eye of the music industry outside of his native country, recently playing with some notable names such as Kansas and Whitecross. Playing music that ranges from rock to jazz fusion, Hedras, who is self taught, shows that he knows how to make his guitar perform acrobatics. There is a full mixture of finger shredding solos, laid back jazz funk and all manner of squeaks and pops emanating from his guitar. In what is a truly diverse offering, even a Scottish bagpipe makes an appearance in the aptly named "Something Different" which harks back to the days of Big Country. The cream of this recording however, is certainly found on tracks where the sound is stripped down to a driving bass and heavy guitar, such as "Writing A History" where Hedras can really let rip over a simple platform. At 12 tracks this CD contains over an hours worth of enjoyable music, providing plenty of inspiration to would be guitar heroes.

"Jam Track Central works with only the best guitarists."

www.jamtrackcentral.com works with only the best guitarists. We have Guthrie Govan and we have Alex Hutchings. Some might say that we are a bit picky about who we choose to work with. Now we have Hedras Ramos taking care of our new Rock Jam tracks series. Need I say more?

Recorded when he was just 17 years old, this package shows why Hedras Ramos is one of the guitar world's future stars. Our package includes his fantastic instrumental "Insanity of the Atoms", complete with backing track, and two long solos with backing tracks and extended jam tracks. All three come in audio and video formats, with complete Tab available at: http://www.jamtrackcentral.com/cshr1.php

Artist Twelve: Hedras Ramos (Guatamala)

Hedras was technically the fifth most popular online guitarist, but as Faraz Anwar couldn’t attend due to visa problems he got through – it wouldn’t have mattered if he hadn’t as the online judges all had this astounding young shred maestro through anyway. At only (just!) 17 years of age it was always going to interesting to see if he could pull it off live…

Judges Comments:

Rob Harris: “…good intervallic playing… but where’s the tune!... more chops than a butchers shop!... powerful delivery…”

Phil Hilborne: “… angular piece… not the best tone… strong technique – nice tapping ideas… good variety in the arpeggio sections… very good overall – but a little too Phrygian dominant for my tastes! …”

Martin Goulding: “…nice eintervallic melody… good control and tone… riffage top class… playing is full of colour, flair and technical flamboyance… incredible potential… very impressive and musical use of the full range of techniques …”

Owen Edwards: “…fantastic technique for one so young – absolutely on the same level as world class shred/metal players twice his age… combination of Andy James and Marco Sfogli in his approach… fizzy tone on the rhythm guitars though – but lead cut through great… very confident live performer for his age – don’t think he dropped any notes!…”

Simon Pitt: “…very technically adept and really worked the crowd …”

Stephen Loveday: “…great, and super accurate shred guitar played with real conviction… mad composition – tuneful in places but almost mathematical in it’s structure… this guy I could really work with …”

Simon McBride: Irish Blues/Rock Guitar Virtuoso, Young Guitarist Of The Year Winner, highly acclaimed solo artist

“…superb technique… good stage presence and performance… interacted wellwith the audience …”

So, Hedras pulled it off! All the judges appreciated the undeniable technical command that he has – and even if his chosen style wasn’t to all our tastes there is no denying that there is a new kid on the block in the world of shred guitar!


So there we have it: 12 performances dissected by not only the judges and live audience, but a worldwide audience via the online webcast.

When the judges scores were sorted out it was ultimately down to two players: Danielle Gottardo and Jack Thamerrat.


Jack got it, followed by Hedras Ramos. - Owen Vaughan / Petrucci Forum
