News: National Learn to Play Day UK

Free Music Instrument lessons for the Public

Music for All, the charity of the UK musical instrument industry is proud to announce the first, annual, National Learn to Play Day taking place on March 31st, 2012.

On this day, the UK’s musical instrument shops will open their doors and offer free instrument “taster” lessons to the general public.

There are 15 million people in the UK that either want to play an instrument or used to play one. The Day is designed to welcome people into music shops and to inspire them to get playing. People are often surprised to discover that they ARE musical and simply need a musical “experience” to get them inspired to start playing.

The Day will offer free lessons on a variety of instruments, supported by music teachers and additional guidance on getting started learning to play music. The UK’s instrument manufacturers will also be supporting the event with staff, instruments and special offers!

Paul McManus, Chief Executive of Music For All commenting on the event said, “Music for All knows how much music can change and enrich people's lives. We are hosting the annual Learn to Play Day to allow as many people as possible to experience the wonderful world of making music".

The charity is also proud to have partnered for the event with the Musicians’ Union, Arts Council England’s Take it away scheme, MusicTeachers.co.uk and Musicradar.com

News: Eddie Trunk moves to satellite radio

TONIGHT'S SIRIUS/XM SHOW MOVES TO HAIR NATION!

Happy to report my show is still alive on satellite radio! As many of you know my show has been a fixture on the Boneyard channel since I started as an XM host in 2003. I was informed this past Thursday with the start of "Ozzy's" Boneyard as the new full time format of the channel, under the direction of the Osbourne family, that my show would no longer be included. Today, SiriusXM offered for me to move my show to channel 39 Hair Nation and I accepted. To me what is most important is I have the outlet to reach you guys and do my thing on Sirius and XM. Honestly they could have put me on a polka channel and as long as I could do my show you guys would find me. That I was confident of!

panos papapetros:
One of my really favorite ballads. From Colosseum II 's "Wardance" album (1978), Gary Moore wrote a fantastic jazzy ballad song. In this track, Gary shows his great voice skills not his guitar playing. I play a simple acoustic cover with 2 guitars

Walter Trout: UK tour dates announced



Walter Trout, today announced the release of his new studio album Blues For The Modern Daze. The album is released by Provogue Records (a division of Mascot Label Group), in the UK on Monday 23rd April, followed by US release on 24th April.

To support the upcoming album, Trout will embark on a UK tour in March. Ticket Hotline: 0844, 478 0898,www.thegigcartel.com. Dates include Leeds City Varieties (March 8), Sheffield O2 Academy (March 9), ClitheroeThe Grand (March 10), Salford The Lowry (March 11), Bristol The Tunnel (March 15) and Tavistock The Wharf (March 16).

Blues for the Modern Daze, showcases the contemporary guitar legend’s return to his hardcore blues roots. The album is Trout’s sixth recording for Provogue, and his first fully-fledged blues album in 23 years as a bandleader. Trout’s practical schooling in blues started when he arrived in Los Angeles in 1973 and secured gigs behind Hooker, Big Mama Thornton, Finis Tasby, Pee Wee Crayton, Lowell Fulsom, Percy Mayfield and Joe Tex. By 1981 he joined the remaining original members of Canned Heat.

The turning point for Trout was his tenure with British blues giant John Mayall. Trout became part of theBluesbreakers’ lineage of great guitarists along with Eric Clapton, Peter Green and Mick Taylor. By 1989, Trout formed his own band, released his debut album Life In the Jungle, and rapidly became a star in Europe. His first US release, 1998's critically heralded Walter Trout, made him a permanent fixture in the American blues rock scene.

"My main inspiration for this album,” says Trout, “was the country bluesman Blind Willie Johnson, an early blues innovator who recorded such timeless gospel informed blues numbers as Soul of a Man and Nobody’s Fault But Mine. His music is beautiful, primal, direct and deeply spiritual. “The album explores a side of my music that’s rooted in my first musical love, and it reveals something about me, too. It sums up the thoughts and attitudes of somebody who is getting a little older and is feeling like he’s a part of another era, with different values and a different perspective on life that’s prevalent today.” Order tickets

Fred Brum: Kemper Profiling Amp Playthrough

Fred Brum:
So, after fiddling with one at last year's Musikmesse, I must confess I was most curious about this unit, and a demo unit conveniently placed at a friend's store allowed me to have my share of fun and experimentation with it, concluding it would best serve my interests than my AxeFX Ultra. Off went the Ultra, in came the Kemper.
Since I was asked many times what good this would be for someone that, unlike me, doesn't have access to a multitude of amps and cabs to profile, the whole song was done with nothing but patches I created with the factory included profiles, namely those of a slightly scooped, not too gainy Dual Rectifier, a Mesa Roadking in Modern mode, and a 65 Amps London, all with the default cabs, and I even resisted using the SLO100 as usual. I added nothing but effects the unit already contains and this took no post processing except the raw mix. Hope you enjoy!
