2018 Kickoff: Solo Album Songwriting Complete, Satriani/G3 Tour Starts Now!

Bryan Beller has sent over an email about what’s going on in the G3 World. Check it out.

Hey Joe, and happy new year, and a belated happy holidays as well. I figured you got enough e-mail without me cluttering your inbox just to say that. And also, I admit, I was working over the holidays because I was trying to finish the songwriting for the new album by the end of 2017. And…I made it! I’m thrilled to report that the demos for the 18 tracks that will make up my next solo *double* modern progressive concept album are now complete and sitting on this humble little orange drive.

It was a long, exhilarating, enlightening, sometimes overwhelming process that took eight fairly solid months, to say nothing of the years it took the material to gather in my mind. And now…even though they’re just demos, it’s all there. True to my obsessive nature, I work pretty hard to make the demos well beyond just the “skeletal” version of the song, and I’m pretty sure that they’ll end up on the Deluxe Edition of the eventual full package release.

And yeah, about the release: It’s a long way between now and then. Soon I’ll be starting the process of figuring out how the hell I’m going to record all of this for real. It’s been said that making a record is like raising a child, which is difficult enough. I find myself with twins. So I have a lot of ideas, and after a short break from the project, and getting past the initial overwhelm, I’ll get into action and we’ll see what happens. When will it be done, you ask? When *I* know, I’ll let *you* know. 🙂

But first, I need to get going on the Joe Satriani tour coming right up…starting this week!
