Joe Bonamassa: On the Road to Vienna part 4

"On the Road to Vienna" Bonus Features PART 4
Get FREE song download here:

Hailed worldwide as one of the greatest guitar players of his generation, Joe Bonamassa has almost single-handedly redefined the blues-rock genre and brought it into the mainstream. He continues this role with his first-ever entirely acoustic concert, recorded at the venerable Vienna Opera House with a global ensemble put together by longtime creative partner Kevin Shirley. The 2CD/2DVD/Blu-ray, An Acoustic Evening at the Vienna Opera House, comes out March 26, 2013 on Bonamassa's label J&R Adventures.

Bonamassa -- a predominantly electric guitar player -- was ready for a complete departure from his usual projects. For years, he had been wowing audiences with his flagship acoustic song "Woke Up Dreaming," which has become an iconic staple of his world tour and a fan favorite. Building on the popularity of this song, Bonamassa and producer Shirley set out to design an entirely new and intimate "unplugged" concert experience

Rebecca Scammon,Ray Suhy: Chaotic Negation - web site - landed - next stop crunching new album!

Rebecca Scammon,Ray Suhy
Rebecca Scammon: Rebecca began playing guitar at 10 years old. When she was 14 her teacher lent her his copy of Steve Vai’s Passion and Warfare. Her mind exploded and she never looked back, determined to be able to play with the same kind of fluidity and technicality. Over time she kept seeking out heavier and heavier music, drawn by its intensity and energy. At seventeen, she attended Berklee College of Music where she studied with Joe Stump, Don Lappin, and many others. After spending a semester abroad in Athens Greece studying at the Philippos Nakas Conservatory, Rebecca returned to Maine and began studying online with Christian Muenzner (Obscura, Spawn of Possession, ex-Necrophagist). Quickly developing her own style with the help of Muenzner and hours of practice, her Youtube videos got the attention of various guitar blogs and EMG pickups, who Rebecca now endorses. She is currently working on Chaotic Negation’s Debut album due out later in 2013.

Ray Suhy: Ray started teaching himself guitar at the age of 12 when he became obsessed with the lead playing of George Lynch, the riffs of Led Zepplin and Black Sabbath, and the thrash metal stylings of Metallica, Megadeth and Anthrax. At 15 he heard John Coltrane for the first time and immersed himself in harmony and Jazz. After stints at Berklee College of Music and The New School, he focused on his studies with the great pianist and educator Charlie Banacos. The hours of hard work that Charlie demanded expanded Ray’s concept of musicianship and the dedication and perseverance that it requires.
While continuing to pursue jazz, Ray also remained active in the metal/rock scene with his band Colepitz (Wonderdrug Records). Once Colepitz separated, Ray started The Baltic Sea (Ericrock Records), which is a progressive post-rock band. In addition to Chaotic Negation, Ray is also currently playing with East of the Wall (Translation Loss).

So welcome to Chaotic Negation’s official website!  an instrumental metal band from Portland, Maine currently working on their debut album. Check out our videos page for some song clips and our blog for more info on the process.

When Uneven Structure announced the release of their stunning new video for their two song mash up of FROST/HAIL the comments that followed on Youtube were so splendid that not only did we have to share our favourites, but we thought that for their creativity and in some cases, sheer oddness, we'd award our favourite 10 with a free download copy of the band's forthcoming, re-worked, re-recorded, re-packaged, 8 EP.

David Valdes: Bound technique - with Tab

Hello and welcome to my SHRED GUITAR EXERCISES section.

In this example we are seeing Bound technique, first hit the downward spike on fret 8 string 2 followed by 4 notes tied up in ascending hit on fret 5 string 1 with the following bound, going after two positions above and repeating pattern over and over again. As shown in the video, is a very expressive and exercise maximum left hand synchronization since we have to move from one position to another with great speed. We get a good synchronization between both hands, this will help us advance our technique every day.

You can find more exercises like this, in my dvd's teaching:

Tom Hess: Taking Lessons For Guitar? Here’s 7 Unfortunate Truths About Your Guitar Teacher

Tom Hess
Taking Lessons For Guitar? Here’s 7 Unfortunate Truths About Your Guitar Teacher
by Tom Hess
REALITY: Most guitar instructors have never taken the time to develop their teaching skills. Unfortunately, this means you must become their student ‘experiment’ as they learn through trial and error. Before you take another lesson, here are the seven things that your guitar teacher has never told you (that you need to know!):

1. “The truth is, I was never trained in any way to effectively teach guitar.” It is true that many guitar teachers previously learned how to play guitar through lessons (or even by going to school to learn), however 99/100 guitar teachers have no actual training when it comes to ‘teaching’ guitar. Most guitar teachers began teaching by using an improvisational, trial by error approach that they still use to this day. Fortunately for you, these people are not the same people who clean your teeth, fix your car or handle your bank account. It astounds me how so many guitar students never think to ask their teachers whether or not they received any kind of training for what they do. This point alone explains why so many students who take lessons from mediocre guitar teachers never become great guitarists.

2. “I’m teaching you guitar with a generic approach that I use for everyone. It might work… it might not work. I don’t really know for sure.” One of the most common ways that guitar teachers hide their lack of knowledge and experience is to use a generalized approach for everyone they teach. Almost every time I start training a guitar teacher, they ask me: “Tom, do you know any kind of methods I can use in my guitar teaching so I don’t have to worry about what I should teach my students every week?” The truth is, with the exception of total ‘beginners’, your guitar teacher MUST use a specific teaching strategy for each of his students (including you) in order to help them effectively improve and reach their goals.

3. “With me, you are limited to playing at a beginner or intermediate level. By keeping you at this level, I can make more money.” There are few guitar teachers who can teach students beyond an intermediate level. In fact, many of them are afraid that you will get ‘too advanced’ and stop taking lessons because they can no longer offer valuable insight. Unfortunately, this means that a lot of teachers purposely hold back their guitar students, thinking that this is the only way to stay in business.

4. “I don’t know how to teach anything besides 1 on 1 lessons.”Contrary to what many teachers will tell you, learning guitar using a private one on one format is NOT the greatest system to learn with. The teachers who try to get you to believe this myth have no experience training A LOT of people to reach high levels of guitar playing. If they did, they would understand that you can get much better results by using a variety of other highly effective guitar learning formats.

5. “Whenever you come in for your guitar lesson, I simply make it up as I go along. I really have no plan whatsoever.” The vast majority of guitar teachers have zero training on how to teach guitar. On top of that, many of them have not even planned out what they are going to teach you from lesson to lesson. When was the last time you took a guitar lesson and felt like your guitar teacher had already prepared a specific plan to help you reach your musical goals? Chances are, you have never felt this way.

6. “Want to become an advanced guitar player? Well you can forget about it if you learn from me.” Don’t be fooled into thinking that just because a guitar teacher has a lot of students, he has helped them become highly skilled players. In reality, most teachers don’t know how to teach guitar on an advanced level or get big results for their students. Fact is, you will never be able to become an advanced guitarist as long as you are taking lessons from someone who doesn’t know how to turn his students into great guitar players.

7. “You want to become a creative guitar player? Sorry, I cannot teach you that… you’re either naturally creative or you’re not creative at all.” Just about every guitar teacher out there (falsely) assumes that creativity cannot be taught. These teachers believe that being able to play creatively on guitar is a gift that you were born with. If you take lessons from a teacher like this, you will never become a creative guitar player because your guitar teacher simply doesn’t know how to help you develop this skill. These teachers will only show you WHAT to play but never how to use it in actual music. Fact is, creativity is a skill that can be developed just like any other skill on guitar.

Now that you have learned what happens ‘behind the scenes’ with (mediocre) guitar teachers, find out finding the best guitar teacher.
Finally, let me give you three big reasons why you should listen to what I have to say:
1. I teach thousands of correspondence guitar lessons to guitar players around the world every year.
2. I have loads of proof of helping my online guitar students become advanced guitarists.
3. I have created a specialized guitar teaching training program that has helped many guitar teachers become highly successful in their guitar teaching businesses (as seen in this Elite Guitar Teachers Inner Circle review).
