Former DARKEST HOUR guitarist Kris Norris will be on Jamplay.com twice a week for two hours at a time to answer questions related to anything music and guitar — touring, scales, modes, management, studio, etc.; anything and everything is welcome. He has also filmed around 40 or so lessons which are currently in production on the site, with a few being added every so often.You can see more at this location. Kris is currently writing material for his second solo CD, which he says "will be a branchout from the metal style" he is known for. It "will be very instrumental, very Paul Gilbert, and yet very melodic and thematic," he says. A firm believer in the Internet to promote music, Kris will make available demo versions of the songs available to the public. He states, "I think the new medium of music is the live show. Well, not the new medium, but the next step is to bring more people to the venues. Record sales suck. So what?! I need to create an album people will want to see live. I need to create something I myself would want to see, so that is my goal, to just better myself as a musician and hope people want to check it out. If not, eh... I had fun making it."
