Thought I'd bump this as I've just been listening to his "there's hope" album.

So far I like it. I kept hearing licks that reminded me of Guthrie, which is no bad thing. When I was listening to Texas BBQ I couldn't help but think of rhode island shred.

methinks I'll have to look for his other stuff with James Labrie.

He's the man who play the guitar in "dance on a vulcano" in the road home of rudess, on of my friends is going to have guitar lessions with him so he is so excited xD by the way marco sfogli is the same of petrucci
#10
^^^ their style is very similar i presume

marco's "theres hope" album reminds me very much of petrucci's "suspended animation".
very similar tone and playing, i think marco's is a bit more listenable though

So, I've been listening to his solo album for a little while...must say I like it His tone is lovely.

How do you say his last name though? I have thought about bringing him up in conversations w/ other guitarist but I don't know how to pronounce his last name. I don't want to look like an idiot mispronouncing his name horribly.

Edit; Btw, I have come to the conclusion that it isn't pronounced polo.

It's a bit weird to explain to non-Italians (especially the way that the G is pronounced), but just say "Svol-yee" and you'll be on the right track.

I know he uses Mesa amps but I'm not sure I know what model, looks like he uses a Lone Star in some videos I've seen but I'm really not sure.

Also, listen to him in the Alex Argento (his keyboardist) solo album "Ego", some sick jazz-fusion stuff going on around there. His phrasing and technique is jaw dropping.

He reminds me of Guthrie too...I think it has to do with his tone. They are similar, probably closer then their phrasing.

Very similar style to Cesar Huesca and Gustavo Guerra

I guess the south americans have a particular style of guitar

+1 I'm still yet to check out his other work.

Does anyone know if he is planning another album for this year? Or maybe a tour?

Anyway, I heard of this guy a long time ago.

I've noticed some mistakes just in the beginning areas. It is pretty ****ing close though.
#29
incase ya'll haven't noticed, he uploaded a new song on his myspace, apparently off of his upcoming solo album

http://www.myspace.com/marcosfogli

the song is titled "The Reaction".

I've been listening to it for a while now, and I really like it alot.

Part of it made me think of Buckethead for some reason. Not his crazy tapping but some of Bucket's riffing style popped into mind for some reason. Maybe it is because I was just listening to him. Listen to the parts around 20 seconds in, thats what I'm talking about.

That's a good song though.
#31
hmmm I didn't hear it the last time through but you might be right.


Also I now have it on my Ipod...

I just wish the new album would come quickly, Marco Sfogli is one of the artists I prefer buying the albums from

Sounded very petruccesque, which is good , I will certainly give this guys album a listen.
#33
sounds very cool

pretty petrucci-like, but much more listenable. probably because he doesnt ruin it with massive altnerate picking runs!

i like though!

I'm thinking that it was that I was just listening to it. It mostly just sounds like a riff that Bucket would use.
#35
I think his style is quite similar to JP i mean just listen to the end of that Andromeda video, it has Dream Theater written all over it. The keyboard transition is undeniable. However this is not necessarily a bad thing! he's an awesome player i really like the work he does with James Labrie
#36
well he is a fan of petrucci (and andy timmons, and nu metal ) so it's not surprising.


also, here's a vid of him covering "echo" by Satriani:

My thoughts exactly. It starts to someone sound like Erotomania, or something very Awake-sh...

But this guy is amazing. That fast alternate picking lick that sounds like sweeping sounds so... fascinating? I can't think of a good word. But what more important is his amazing phrasing.. especially on that improv video..
#38
does anyone think texas BBQ sounds very inspired but guthrie govan's rhode island shred?
Top lel.
#39
could very well be, don't know any govan

oh btw, new vids on youtube, including a new song, which melted my face off.
