You’ll be guided through techniques such as alternate picking, 3-octave scales, and 4-note-per-string patterns with the help of on-screen tablature. You’ll also learn exciting 2-handed licks, how to use arpeggios, and other improvisational tools to help you create your own solos. BUY
Matt Warnock: You mix a bunch of different styles into your playing, is this a conscious thing or just how your playing has developed over the years?
Michael Dolce: It’s definitely something that’s just developed over the years. I was always trying to simulate the sounds of Blues, Fusion and Country, but I could never find myself feeling comfortable doing it in a purely traditional way. It just didn’t feel natural for me. So I pretty much just went with what did feel good. My album, Everything Til Now, is a good representation of my diverse approach.
Matt: Speaking of which, your debut album Everything Til Now took a while to record due to other commitments. Because of this, did you find that mixing and mastering took longer than expected because your ears and music had grown during that time?
Michael: The recording side took three months due to touring commitments, and in addition, most of the guys that played on the album were hard to tie down due to their busy schedules, but it was worth the wait.
The mixing side was the longest process. Once again I had to work around Nathan Cavaleri’s schedule. He would call me in the morning and we’d go from there. We sometimes had two hours, sometimes four, and it was spread out over five months.
I’m actually glad we did it that way because it would give me heaps of time to listen to each mix, and then the luxury to re-visit each song and make adjustments. The album was written in three weeks so it captured the way I was feeling and playing at the time.
I never intended to play around with the songs too much after they were written. So I didn’t really give my ears a chance to try and hear other possibilities, because I was pretty much set with what I had in mind. For me it’s all about capturing the moment. more
