Martin Motnik,Peter Dallas: Bass & Drums Clinic: Rock Rhythm


Educational Bass & Drums Clinic by Martin Motnik (www.martinmotnik.com) and Peter Dallas (www.peterdallas.com). Featuring exemplary rock songs to show the importance of a tight rhythm section, with tips and tricks on technique, interplay, on-stage communication, and gear.

Track List:
1. Hot for Teacher (Van Halen) 7:40
2. Crazy Train (Ozzy Osbourne) 18:57
3. Pinball Wizard (The Who) 27:17
4. Arizona Sunset (Martin Motnik with Gregg Bissonette) 44:43
5. YYZ (Rush) 53:14

Synopsis:
On March 22 Las Vegas--based musicians Martin Motnik and Peter Dallas debuted Locked-In Sessions, a series of educational bass and drums clinics, at the Summerlin Guitar Center. This first clinic explored the relationship between bass and drums in the context of rock music and served to educate bass players and drummers about the importance of strong interaction between these two instruments.

During the one-hour clinic, Motnik and Dallas highlighted the importance of a tight rhythm section. The duo played famous rock songs such as Ozzy's "Crazy Train," The Who's "Pinball Wizard," and "Hot for Teacher"—Van Halen's drum-chopping classic, during which Dallas performed back-handed tom triplets and a strong double-bass groove. The duo explained key elements of each song, showing the interaction of bass and drums, and demonstrated how these two instruments build the foundation for a solid rock song.

Another highlight of the clinic was Motnik's version of "YYZ" by Rush, from his solo record Bass Invader, accompanied by a playback guitar track featuring Swedish string wizard Mattias Eklundh. After performing this last song of the night, Motnik gave out transcriptions of his songs as a preview of his instructional book, which will be released later this year.

The clinic was presented by Motnik's and Dallas's endorsing companies, which supplied valuable giveaways for those in attendance. During the clinic, the duo quizzed the audience about important concepts they had previously covered, and rewarded the correct answers with cool gifts from Gallien-Krueger, Gator, Elixir, DW drums, Paiste, Vater, and Ahead, including shirts, ball caps, wristbands, drumsticks, and bass strings. Be sure to pay attention the next time you attend, and you too might win a $50 set of Elixir strings for answering the question, "What is the most important piece of the drum kit for a bass player to listen to?" (Hint: It's big and round and goes boom!)

Guitar Center store manager Alon Bitton said he is looking forward to having Motnik and Dallas back for another clinic in the near future, so stay tuned for more rock and roll education!

Motnik and Dallas are the rhythm section of the Las Vegas--based band Rok of Ages, a classic rock tribute group featured at the Fremont Street Experience.

Martin Motnik is a studio and session bassist who has recorded on numerous albums through his website, studiobassist.com. He has performed with former Scorpions guitarist Uli Jon Roth, Ian Paice, Doug Aldrich, Don Dokken, and Ray Parker, Jr. Motnik has given workshops and solo performances at Musikmesse Frankfurt (Germany), the NAMM Show in Anaheim, and music stores in Germany and the U.S. His instructional articles have appeared in several music magazines.

Peter Dallas graduated from the Percussion Institute of Technology and has played on a number of hard rock, metal, and blues records. He performed on national and international tours with blues legend Mason Ruffner, Larry Donn, Charley Gracie, and Lee Rocker's Big Blue (Stray Cats). He has also shared the stage with Asia, Loverboy, Edgar Winter, Eddie Money, Tesla, Ratt, Willie Nelson, Dee Snider, Bret Michaels, Night Ranger, and many more. Between tours, Dallas works as a session player and drum teacher in Las Vegas.

Lee Wrathe: two stunning albums available for free download right now!

Lee Wrathe:  Ninja Guitar
2 albums, absolutely free! Check it out!

Hi,
I decided that it would be better for people to hear and comment on my Music rather than HAVE to use iTunes and HAVE to pay for them. So I have uploaded 2 albums to Bandcamp as a free Download.
I have written a description for both albums and one for each individual track which details the thought process/History behind each one.

Both albums are absolutely free and, of course, feel free to share them with anyone you think might like them.
You can download them in loads of different formats too, so go and check them out and let me know what you think.

The albums are
"Ninja Guitar"
description as follows..
Ninja Guitar represents a collection of tracks that were written/recorded as a means of musical escapism. Put simply, my spare time!
I've always thought that mastering the guitar and indeed any instrument was akin to the enlightenment reached by Martial art Masters. Both take dedication/belief and both allow the person to express themselves and escape into another 'space'..a form of meditation I guess.
I hope, for a brief moment at least, I managed to reach that space on some parts of this record.

I even drew a little Ninja carrying an Ibanez as a sword for the album cover ...how sad am I?
...Don't answer that!



Lee Wrathe: Singularity

The other album is
"Singularity"

Description as follows;
"Singularity" is effectively "Ninja Guitar pt II"- The Revenge! It gathers up the many and varied musical ideas of a period of time and brings them to a single point of no return...the musical event Horizon known to everyone as else "Publishing your work for everyone to listen to and critique"... There's a little bit of everything here, from Gypsy Jazz to Metal, from Classical etudes to Soundtrack/Soundscapes and most importantly some melodic ballads served up with my best attempts at guitar playing at a given moment (probably in between some "real life" task/emergency). As always, music is my escapism, the guitar is my compositional tool and this was my journey into the unknown. I hope you enjoy it.

you can get it here



Best wishes
Lee

George Bellas, Marco Minnemann: announces the new album "Astral Projection"


George Bellas The new album "Astral Projection" Coming June 21st, 2013
Available through http://www.LionMusic.com/


Screaming Guitar, Eccentric Rhythms, Outlandish Sounds, and Grandiose Forms are just some words to describe “Astral Projection” the killer new album from world acclaimed guitar virtuoso George Bellas out on 21st June 2013 via Lion Music.

"Astral Projection" is an amalgamation of guitar saturated songs and epic progressive instrumentals packed with chaotic guitar improvisations; mind-twisting rhythms; emotionally intense lyrical themes; and advanced explorations of modern melodic, harmonic and rhythmic principles that are combined with classical elements of counterpoint, harmony and form.

Once again (and as with his previous 3 releases) George has teamed up with drummer extraordinaire Marco Minnemann with Bellas handling all guitar, bass, and keyboard duties. George comments, “It’s always a pleasure working with Marco and hearing him humanise the drum parts I composed and also add his unique sense of style and finesse. Some of the songs on this album have very complex rhythms (nothing new there!). I think when some people hear it they may not realise the complexity and just how difficult some of those rhythms are to play. Ever since I was very young I have always written very naturally using odd-meters, poly-meters, and other uncommon metric devices”.



George has also seen fit to go against the modern day trend of cramming as much volume onto a recording as possible and has produced a more dynamic release for it, “Sonically, as with my previous album, I wanted to retain the full dynamic range of the recordings. So, during the mastering stage I didn’t remove any peaks and kept it very open sounding, which will be clear, dynamic and spacious sounding when played loud. Because no peaks were limited or squashing of any dynamics were done, Marco’s drums are punchy and will hit you like a ten ton truck”.

Whilst “Astral Projection” might be the follow up release to 2010’s “The Dawn Of Time” (Lion Music), this is not the first album of new material Bellas has created in this time, “After the release of my previous album “The Dawn of Time” I had a new album ready to go weeks after but had several other ideas that I also wanted to compose and develop, so I decided to release “Astral Projection” first and then the other albums afterwards. I learned a lesson to not announce a new album until you know it will be the next one released. But the truth is, I have so much music and am constantly writing that it is sometimes difficult to decide which one I want to publish next”.

Rabea came to Andertons to check out the latest proto of his ML1-Rabea model from Chapman guitars. The mods he requests in the video have all been implemented & the 1st batch of his signature guitar is arriving in July 2013 - you can find out more here - http://www.andertons.co.uk/solid-body...

We also happened to have a prototype amp from Victory amps, but at the time of posting this video all I can say is that Victory amps are still in the process of finalising the design, spec, look & price of this amp, so there isn't much else I can tell you! However, if you're watching this video after July 2013 then I expect Victory will have its own web site by then & who knows - we may even have some in stock at Andertons!

Jordane Richet: please help Daniele Gottardo to finish the current recordings of his new CD


Jordane Richet:  Hi, my name is Jordane, I live in Brest, France.

This is my take of "Marrakesh Market" from the italian prodigy Daniele Gottardo (album Frenzy of Ecstasy).
This is 100% real live...with some real wrong notes :-), but who cares ?

For me, playing with energy and fun is the most important.

Only a GOTTYBOY pedal (from Eleven Electrix), a computer and vst plugins were used for this recording.

Daniele Gottardo is one of the greatest guitar player i've heard in my life. he gives me extra motivation to practice my guitar again ! Above all, he's a real musician. So If you like this cover (and even if you don't :-)), please help Daniele Gottardo to finish the current recordings of his new CD :

Brennan Dylan: Waves Of Shred Entry

Brennan Dylan:
Here is my entry to the Waves Of Shred Contest.
Recorded Direct. NO EDIT. 
It takes about 1 hour from start to finish (give or take).........when I first listen to the backing track to the time I upload the finished video to Youtube. My method is very simple, first I listen to the backing track 2 or 3 times to get my feel for what the composer is saying. Next, I improv to the track. What I do is rip a number of ideas while the track is running. If you listened to what I'm playing it would sound to you like I was an escaped mental patient who was totally tone deaf. When I know exactly what it is I want to do I get the camera rolling. The French Guitar Contest 2 was 1 take. Too bad I didn't follow the instructions!!! LOL. My first entry for Waves Of Shred was the first or second take......I forget which. This time around I was satisfied on the 5th take. I know when I have what I want and that's the long and short of it. Oh yeah, this version smells like the latest cologne from Nirvana.  
Hope you guys like it! Thanks For watching
