Just sending out a reminder to all our guitar fans about the Tom Quayle masterclass - sorry if you don't live in the UK or are too far away to make it....our mailing list isn't smart enough to filter you out !

Admission is free for under 25s and a stupidly low £2 for over 25s !!

During the course of the evening Tom will be playing along to a few tunes, doing some improvisation and talking about his career to date, his gear and guitars, as well as fielding questions that anyone wants to ask - including any technical / theory / lesson / session based information. It will be an informative and inspirational event, not only for players at all levels but for anyone who has a passing interest in music generally.

Here's a short video to give you an idea of what to expect.



There will be a merch stand where it will be possible to buy copies of Toms Lick Library DVDs, signature picks and vouchers for his online or face to face lessons.
Look forward to seeing you on the night, and please keep spreading the word ( forward this email to anyone who may be interested ) so we can get a good turnout and help more of these events happen.....not just for guitar !

Tom Hess: How To Play Great Guitar Solos Part 4: Creating Strong Emotions Over Chords


How To Play Great Guitar Solos Part 4: Creating Strong Emotions Over Chords
by Tom Hess
It’s great to be able to use only one pitch to make your playing feel more emotional... but to make your guitar solos overflow with emotion, you need to squeeze as much feeling as possible out of every note in every guitar lick.
Notice: To fully understand the ideas in this article, it’s crucial for you to read the third part of this series about playing highly emotional guitar solos.
To increase the emotional intensity in every single lick of your solos, you have to become aware of how each note feels as it is played above a specific chord/chord progression. Every note you use in your solos has a different function while it is played over different chords, so you can change the way a lick feels emotionally by combining different notes together. For instance, if you are using the notes G, A flat, and D flat over an F minor chord, every note will have a unique function (G = second, A flat = third and D flat = sixth). If you replace the D flat note with an F note (the root), the F note will function differently and completely alter the way the lick feels as a whole.
Visualize painting a picture using different colors. As you use one note over a chord, you only experience a certain emotion (this is the function of that note). Then as you combine this note together with several others, it’s like blending many colors together to create a new one. You are already familiar with the idea that changing a few notes in a small lick will produce an entirely new emotional feeling... now you understand why this occurs.
To hear precisely what this sounds like, watch the video below:
To begin implementing this idea into the licks of your guitar solos, play the .mp3 samples below and use the instructions I made for you. Keep in mind that each sample has been recorded for an entire minute in order to make it easier to complete the steps below:

1
Lick #1 (Hear It)

Pitch2-2
Lick #2 (Hear It)

Pitch2-3
Lick #3 (Hear It)

4
Lick #4 (Hear It)

Step 1 Listen to the first sample lick and play this chord progression above it:
G major - E minor - A minor - C major
(Play each chord several times to give yourself enough time to understand the emotion created by each note.)
Step 2Think about how each note in the lick is functioning over the chords you played. This is crucial for helping you understand WHY a specific lick feels the way that it does. By knowing the specific function of each note (over a specific chord), you can recreate the same feeling of that note in other soloing scenarios. This is massively more beneficial to know as a musician than merely knowing that “Lick X sounds cool when its played over Chord Y”.
If you need to improve your music theory understanding to better follow the previous step, watch this video about music theory.
Step3 Go back and repeat the first two steps. This time, play the chord progression in step one over the other three audio samples.
Step4 Go back and repeat the first two steps again. Instead of using the chord progression from step one, play these chord progressions over the licks they specify from above:
Play over guitar lick two: G major - F major - A major - E major
Play over guitar lick three: C major - G major - A minor - F major
Play over guitar lick two: C major - E minor – C major - G minor
Once you have finished the steps above, it will be much easier for you to understand how each note you play changes the overall feeling of your guitar licks. It’s crucial that you continue to pay close attention to the notes you use in your solos, so you can always convey the particular emotions you want – instead of mindlessly playing a bunch of memorized licks/patterns and waiting for something to sound good (like a lot of guitar players do).
It will become second nature for you to get maximum expression in your guitar solos, when you use the idea above with embellishments and cool phrasing nuances that turn boring guitar licks into badass guitar licks).
When you have the power to make any note sound incredibly expressive and can control the emotions of each note over specific chords, your guitar solos will become like an extension of your soul – making your playing sound highly creative and unique.
To learn even more ways to play highly emotional, self-expressive guitar solos, read this page on how to create strong emotions in music.

Richie Kotzen: The essential Richie Kotzen - a 2 CD/1DVD collection announed


SET TO RELEASE ‘THE ESSENTIAL RICHIE KOTZEN’ 
2 CD/1 DVD COLLECTION SEPTEMBER 2
RICHIE KOTZEN - ON LOUD & PROUD RECORDS

July 14, 2014 -- When RICHIE KOTZEN plays his guitar, you know it’s him.  The guitar virtuoso,

singer and songwriter possesses an inimitable style that’s both instantly recognizable and immediately striking.  This unique style courses through THE ESSENTIAL RICHIE KOTZEN, a career retrospective collection set for release September 2 on Loud & Proud Records.  It encompasses this iconic talent’s  entire career of his most essential work and includes two CDs of classic material, acoustic performances,  bootleg material and two brand new songs (“War Paint” and “Walk With Me”), and a DVD of music videos,  acoustic performances and bootleg material.  A three-song sampler, including the two new songs along  with “Lie To Me,” is being serviced to rock radio stations later this month.  Fans can pre-order the album at http://bit.ly/1oXRsUX.

KOTZEN personally curated THE ESSENTIAL RICHIE KOTZEN from his 18 solo albums in order to give listeners the most comprehensive, cohesive and concise introduction to his extensive body of work.  “I’ve really changed and grown as an artist and as a person,” he says.  “I hand-selected songs so newcomers can get into my music and learn who I am as a recording artist.”

“War Paint” builds from an opening bluesy riff into a bombastic chorus punctuated by KOTZEN’s gravelly delivery and impeccable lead playing.  He explains, “It was a challenge to make a studio recording sound like a live band with only one musician playing all the instruments.  I think I accomplished that  on this track.”  At the same time, “Walk With Me” sees KOTZEN evolving once more and incorporating a Theremin, an antique electronic instrument, into an emotive and engaging anthem.  “There was a specific sound I was hearing in the song,” he reveals.  “I realized it was a Theremin, so I bought one.  I spent a couple of weeks learning it.  I used that where the lead guitar would normally go.  It was a really  rewarding departure for me.”

With his guitar styles ranging from rock, blues, jazz and fusion to pop and soul, RICHIE KOTZEN has built a remarkably diverse 20 year career as a guitarist, singer and songwriter.  During that span, KOTZEN toured with his trio extensively outside the United States, building a loyal fan base and selling out shows throughout Europe, Latin America, and Japan.  In 1996, Fender guitars honored him with not one, but two signature model guitars.  His signature model Telecaster is available worldwide and continues to be a top seller for the brand.  In 2006, KOTZEN received one of his biggest personal honors when The Rolling Stones chose him to open up a string of Japanese shows placing him in front of some of his biggest crowds to date.  He has not only built an incredibly successful solo career, but has also found himself writing, recording and playing live with a variety of different artists, including Jazz legends Stanley Clarke and Lenny White.  He currently plays guitar and fronts the band The Winery Dogs with bassist Billy  Sheehan and drummer Mike Portnoy (the band’s self-titled debut album debuted at #27 on the Billboard “Top 200 Albums” chart).

With his 20th legacy is only continuing to expand.  “When you perform, record or write, you go to a different place,” he concludes.  “It’s another world. I love hearing people react to the music and lyrics.  That’s the ultimate Stay tuned for solo touring news, which will be announced in the coming weeks.
