RICHIE KOTZEN Guitar School lessons



Following the success of last years UK Tour, Richie Kotzen has just announced three UK dates for June 2010 as part of his World Tour of the new ‘Peace Sign’ Album. Last October saw the first live dates that Richie had played in the UK since 2004 resulting in a ‘Sold Out’ London performance.
Richie is a guitar virtuoso who has recorded on Mike Varney’s Shrapnel Label, recorded and toured with Multi Platinum bands Poison and Mr Big, played in Keanu Reeves band Dogstar and played as a solo artist as the opening act for the Rolling Stones ‘Bigger Bang’ tour in Japan in 2006. Richie has amassed a 30 plus album discography.
He is one of a very few artists who has been graced with not one but two Fender signature guitars.
However, unlike most virtuoso guitarists, Richie’s material is not full bore shred rock. Instead he writes and sings soulful songs that bring to mind the very best of both early 1970’s rock, and the current crop of emerging young blues rock guitar players. His voice has been compared to Steve Marriott, Paul Rodgers and Chris Cornell.
The UK tour dates are:
June 17th - 02 Academy Islington, LONDON
June 19th - Club Academy, MANCHESTER
June 20th - The Classic Grand, GLASGOW
Tickets are available now from:
www.ticketweb.co.uk | www.seetickets.com | and other reputable Ticket outlets.

Brian Auer: highintel delivers clean shred

Clean Shred! LESSON!


Brian Auer:
I am a Guitarist/musician That has been playing music for over 25 years. During my studies I managed to make my way through several method and theory books ranging from Mel Bay to Berklee and Musicians Institute.

Being self taught and already quite a good Ear player, I was able to see a common Language or Formula within all the method books. I quickly realized what they were all trying to teach you but they seem to all approach it from different angles.

I found the common Language!

Basically, what I found is that when you remove all the miscellaneous and pointless regimes and exercises, you have a very simple and elementary sequence of numbers that all fit together in a simple, easy to understand, and easy to apply system which I call the Auer Method.

There are several Methods that use Numbers, just like there are several methods that use alphabet, but none of them have it layed out in a step by step manual to completely understand Music on a Elementary level that you will find is all of what you have been trying to learn only De-Coded!

My Method is designed to cut through all the Crap and give you what all the greats Know to become a well rounded musician not just a good guitarist. All of this will be covered.
