Improv over the Rotosound Orange Jam backing track. This was a third take 100% improv and although it is by no means perfect(or anywhere near it!) I felt it was the better of the 3. Anyway, hope you enjoy it!

Are you an intermediate jazz guitarist who has hit a stone wall or simply lost interest in your playing, because of instructors who endlessly preach useless modes and scales? Instead of another boring lesson, would you enjoy learning with the time-tested methodology that is based on the concept of playing jazz to actually learn how to "play jazz guitar?"

Frank Gambale: acoustic dvd review

News:
23-05-2009:
New blog http://guitarplayerdaily.blogspot.com/ has been posting some great original content, the latest a review of Frank Gambale Acoustic Improvisation: DVD, here's a little taster from the post:



One of the most interesting aspects of this release is that is gives fans a chance to see and hear Gambale play on the acoustic guitar. While he is mainly known for his electric playing, especially with Chick Corea’s band, Gambale does not seem out of place with the more subtle tones of the acoustic guitar. All of Gambale’s characteristic sounds are here, the long lightening-fast runs, sweep picking, complex scale pattern, and advanced harmonic substitutions, with the acoustic guitar adding a nice sonic change to Gambale’s normally electric sound.

Dave Celentano: wicked music box five star review

News:
23-05-2009:


It's an excellent CD for any guitar lover, and his style definitely stands out among all the others in the instrumental guitar genre. I highly recommend 'Wicked Music Box' with no hesitation. It's eclectic and goes through different styles. Threaded by the awesome songwriting and guitar playing of guitarist Dave Celentano. A futuristic sounding musician in full control of his talent and creativity. This guy is really that good.
