Derryl Gabel: Christmas Time is upon us... get some cool DVD's

Hi Guitar Friends, hope you are having a good week. I wanted to let you know about an exclusive limited time offer. Now until December 1st, I am offering one downloadable video or DVD of your choice for 20% off the normal price. If you have bought one of the series DVDs such as Cool Legato Phrases or Outside Secrets and wanted to get part 2 or 3 now's the time. If you have bought Pentatonic Passages and wanted a deeper look into the aspects of economy and sweep picking for other scales and arpeggios I recommend Supersonic Sweeping. If you have that already but don't have Pentatonic Passages I recommend getting that for an extensive study into the Pentatonic approach using sweep, economy, and alternate picking with the extended forms of this scale.

Go to the "Store" page to place your order and look for the November Promo.

Keep in mind if you buy a DVD you will get the download version included! That's right, you can be working with the video and transcriptions while you're waiting for your DVD to arrive!

One of my commonly overlooked DVDs is Visions and Dreams. This DVD is packed with great licks, chord voicings, progressions, and arrangements. Here's a tune from the DVD [This has to be one of the best undiscovered CD's and DVD's I just love this album - Laurie]


Basically I perform 5 of the tunes from my Visions and Dreams album. Included with the DVD is the transcriptions of all the tunes. Not only will you get the chords but you will also get all the lead parts as well. If you decide to get this DVD I can show you how to slow it down 200% without changing the pitch so you can practice along with it as you are learning the licks.

Another commonly overlooked DVD is Chordal Mysteries Revealed. If you have gaps in your chord knowledge or are struggling learning chords this DVD is for you. It starts out with basic triad construction and systematically takes you through intermediate all the way to even to the most complex of chords. This is the easiest method I have seen to explode your chord knowledge exponentially!

Are you looking for hipper sounding chords for your compositions? Are you wanting those cool sounding jazz and fusion voicings and substitutions? Even if you are just wanting to spice up a pop or rock song this is what you need. I can even show you how to tweak some of the chords you already know to make them sound fresh, new, and modern. By going through this DVD you will have a better understanding of how to construct even the most sophisticated chords and have a much easier time learning and memorizing them.

But wait, that's not all! You'll also learn how to create chord scales. This is what the pros use for comping up and down the neck. This will also help you in the composition department as well. So, what are you waiting for? Pick up your copy today!

If you've been wondering if online guitar lessons are right for you but have been hesitant to try I will offer you a free 10 minute session. Then, if you pre pay for 3 lessons you get the fourth lesson free! This is for first time students only.

All of you out there that have bought my DVDs and don't have my albums please consider picking them up today. I offer the download version for a discount. I also have the backing tracks and most of the transcriptions for my Visions and Dreams album for download as well.

Maybe because of your schedule a downloadable video lesson is better for you. Please email me to discuss rates and options.

Thanks for your time and attention. Have a wonderful day and happy holidays!

Robin Trower: guitarinternational interview

Brian: Upon leaving Procol Harum to start your solo career, you immediately got into what generally became known as the signature Robin Trower sound. Did a lot of time, effort and research go into creating this?

Robin: Well, it all really started from that very distorted Hubert Sumlin sound, and a track by Muddy Waters called “Still A Fool.” I was always trying to make it, right from the moment I’d heard it, you know, that Howlin’ Wolf noise. That’s what it developed into really. In the early ‘60s I put it through a preamp to get the overload sound.

You couldn’t buy an overdrive pedal. I used to put it through a little practice amp and then into a bigger amp to try and get that sound. Eventually I started getting fuzz boxes, when they started making stuff like that. During my early period I had custom-made overdrive stuff because I didn’t like what they were making at the time. more

Matias Kupiainen, Jens Johansson: Jörg Michael Stratovarius drummer gets cancer.

Jens Johansson of multi-national melodic metallers STRATOVARIUS has issued the following update:

"Dear STRATOVARIUS fans, I am afraid we have some quite terrible news. News of the worst imaginable kind. It's about our friend and [German] drummer Jörg Michael [STRATOVARIUS].

"Jörg has cancer.

"He recently discovered a lump on his neck, went to the doctor, they decided to operate, and found what they call 'a malignant thyroid neoplasm.' They took out his whole thyroid just to have the best chance to get everything out. He will also have to undergo a regimen of radiotherapy.

"He is a fighter. We have all talked to him and it's clear that this guy is not down for the count. He and his team of German doctors are pissed off and ready to kick ass, and I would not want to be a little cancer cell on these guys' shit list.. believe me.

"Jörg and his family (and us guys in the band) found this out only last week, after the operation. Naturally we are all going between a lot of emotions, sadness, worry, shock, confusion, even anger. more
