Phil Hilborne: The Oracle - Free Lesson

Free Lesson...Last Friday was the debut release by The Oracle, the guitarist whose identity is unknown and licks are unworldly! Learning the ten tracks in this brand new package is guaranteed to make you analyse just how you solo and take you into a whole world of new! However, we felt that a few extra hints and tips along the way are going to be required to really understand the Oracle's methods, so we have put together a lesson focusing on different elements of this incredible new package.

You might have noticed that a couple of the tracks are specifically about dominant and altered dominant chords. In this first lesson, we're going to show you the (musical) meaning of dominant and how an altered dominant is created.

The plan is record and perform"

News: Air Knob - The Ultimate Air Guitar - Full Movie!

AIR KNOB (Full Movie) The Ultimate Air Guitar

In an air guitar war there are only LOSERS!

http://www.twitter.com/AirKnob @AirKnob

Two neighbors, one a quiet, would be folk guitarist, the other a brash wannabe headbanger, vie for air guitar supremacy in a take no prisoner battle in a sleepy suburban neighbourhood.

When it came time to write and direct my next film I wanted to combine my two loves. Filmmaking and guitar. What bothers me about air guitar movies and videos is the fact that their hand movements represent how they feel, not how the riff is played. I aimed to change that with Air Knob.

It took me a few months to work out the story and to pre-record the music and since I was playing the guitar parts in the recording sessions it became clear to me that I should play both guitar players. I have always loved acting but do not consider myself an actor. This gave me an opportunity to get that out of my system.

Tim Dashwood is an accomplished cinematographer and luckily, a friend, who showed up on one lazy day in May in East Hamilton Ontario Canada. This was also a chance for him to put his HD200, HZ-CA13U and a Russian Kinor 10-100 zoom to use.

It took about one month to complete the edit and by August of 2009, it was picked up by OUAT MEDIA for distribution which sold it to Movieola, Movie Central, Sundance Channel Canada, Air Canada and a few more. In addition to broadcast Air Knob enjoyed a 2:1 selection ration on the festival circuit including the Worldwide Short Film Festival, Hawaii International Film Festival, Park City Film Music Festival and won awards at many more.

In 2012 the rights came back to me and having never ben online, I decide to release the movie on 12/12/12. If you are reading this before seeing the film, you'll get the joke when you see the "spinning sign"

I really hope you enjoy this film. It has been a fun journey and it continues on the internet.

Tom Quayle: announces WEEK long masterclasses in Andalucia

Tom Quayle
Hey guys - I am doing a WEEK long masterclass session in Andalucia, Spain from June 23rd to June 29th for Guitar Retreat Spain. If you want to experience a fun, inspirational week of guitar playing and learning, taking your guitar playing to the next level I'd love to have you there.

This is the only masterclass of this type that I'll be doing this year and is a great opportunity to learn cutting edge rock, fusion and improvisational techniques in gorgeous surroundings with like minded guitar players. Check here for details and to buy tickets and feel free to contact me for further info!


guitarretreatspain.com: With like minded people you will improve your guitar skills and music knowledge in a fun and relaxed atmosphere with plenty of time for learning, absorbing, practicing and demonstrating new found skills. 
The week is structured around a timetable and as well as the lessons you will have plenty of time for relaxing and practicing in the sun with stunning views of the Andalucían scenery.  
With teaching during the day, the learning doesn't stop there ! Playing around the pool and impromptu jam sessions are always encouraged, with a PA on permanent stand by...  all geared towards a "players'" night at the end of the week. 
In addition to the tuition, we also include trips to the picturesque white-washed village of Mijas and an afternoon at “The Lakes” of El Chorro, plus a guest Flamenco guitarist and BBQs etc.
Non-playing partners are also encouraged to join us at a reduced rate and are included in all excursions, making this an ideal holiday for you both to relax by the pool, re-charge your batteries and experience the traditional Spanish culture.
