Stephen Stills, Kenny Wayne Shepherd: The Rides - Can't get enough album ready!

By: The Rides
Separated in age by a musical generation but bonded by a mutual love of classic cars and the blues, two time Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Stephen Stills and five-time Grammy nominated singer, guitarist and songwriter Kenny Wayne Shepherd draw fire from their extraordinary collective histories--and join forces with famed Chicago rock/blues keyboardist Barry Goldberg--to blaze a fresh trail for the historical American art form in the 21st Century.

Launching an exciting new chapter in each of their storied careers, the trio’s new band The Rides—which Stills dubs “the blues band of my dreams,” built to last beyond the concept of a one time all-star gathering—is further powered by the explosive rhythm section of bassist Kevin McCormick and Shepherd’s longtime drummer Chris Layton (also a veteran of Stevie Ray Vaughan’s Double Trouble). Their debut Can’t Get Enough, helmed by longtime Shepherd producer Jerry Harrison, is a fascinating historical sweep, featuring a hard hitting mix of Stills-Goldberg-Shepherd penned blues/rock originals, classic blues tunes by Muddy Waters (“Honey Bee”) and Elmore James (“Talk To Me Baby”) and blistering twists on Stills’ favorite Neil Young anthem “Rockin’ In The Free World” and the Iggy Pop & The Stooges’ early 70s classic “Search and Destroy.”

For each principal, the inexplicable, free flowing chemistry and collective energy they shared during that high octane week of mostly first and second takes recorded at EastWest Studios on Sunset Blvd. The band took their creative A-games to transcendent places. “Barry and I got rid of everything we have learned over the past 40 years about how to screw up a record,” says Stills, who launched his career with Buffalo Springfield in the mid 60s, penning the generation defining “For What It’s Worth” before cementing his legend with Crosby, Stills & Nash (and among many classic hits, “Suite: Judy Blue Eyes,” “Dark Star,” “Southern Cross” and “Love The One You’re With”) over the ensuing decades. “In the spirit of that simple, raw authentic 40s and 50s blues music the three of us love, we got in there and boom! A few takes and we were done. The songs have muscle, they don’t sound dated or contrived, they’re very natural and organic. It’s been the most magical experience of my life and I can’t wait to tour with these guys and start recording again!”

Andrew Timothy: Modes of the Major Scale: A Harmonic Approach - Lesson Package

In my first online guitar instructional package Modes of the Major Scale: A Harmonic Approach, I walk you through each of the 7 modes of the major scale focusing on the harmonic implications of each mode. So much of the confusion surrounding modes is a direct result of the under-emphasis of harmonic context (ie the chords associated with each mode). If you've memorized scale patterns for all the modes but are still struggling to understand their real-life application, this tutorial is for you! I'll give you easy-to-memorize scale patterns as well as the theoretical background needed to actually APPLY this knowledge.

This tutorial includes...

-A 10 page eBook describing the 7 modes from a harmonic perspective plus the #1 method for learning and practicing the modes
-Professional Backing Tracks for all 7 modes
-Chord Charts for all 7 backing tracks in PDF and Guitar Pro formats
-Seven pages of Scale Diagrams, but NOT your typical patterns that cross all 6 strings. HINT: this method is quicker, easier and will instill an awareness of the intervals contained in each mode.
-A Bonus PDF with tips for modal improvisation plus all pentatonic scales, triads and 7th chord arpeggios contained in each of the 7 modes...enough melodic material to keep you busy for a long time!

All this for only $15...about 1/2 the price of a 30 minute lesson!


Guthrie Govan: Complete album, Official album backings, Accurate TAB and notation! buy me now!!


After the global success of The Aristocrats debut album comes the follow up, entitled 'Culture Clash', which is set to continue the meteoric rise of this incredible band. Featuring Guthrie Govan on Guitar, Bryan Beller on Bass and Marco Minnemann on drums this album is once again a showcase of three guys that totally understand each other....musically, and by the artwork..mentally!

Bryan Beller says 'I personally think that Guthrie took it to another level on our new album Culture Clash. Marco and I wrote tunes with wildly varying styles - techno, metal, rockabilly, prog, you name it - and he just let loose all over them. Plus Guthrie's own new tunes are brilliant.

I think you'll really dig diving into Mr. Govan's transcribed parts on this record. And thanks to JamTrackCentral, you can jam along with Marco and me on these nine new tunes from Culture Clash. Hope you enjoy!'

This is for the true Aristocrats guitar playing fan....learn every single lick of the album while you jam with the band! In this deluxe edition you get the full album included too! Guthrie even checked and endorsed all 123 pages of TAB himself....so you know that every little detail is correct!


 Complete album
 Official album backings
