Jason Becker: Guitarplayer.com - Thinking Outside the (Music) Box



I like to wind two or three music boxes at the same time, and see if I can hear any interesting or haunting harmonies, or maybe some cool note sequences. I must be strange, because I think it sounds beautiful when different songs are playing at the same time with that sweet little instrument.

When I was writing my song, “End of the Beginning,” it had started with a simple and gentle piano introducing the main theme. It then built into a big orchestral thing, playing with the theme in grand major keys and dramatic minor keys. After all of that bombardment of sound, I needed it to finish with something gentle, to bring the end back to the beginning.

News: The Wing Bass is offered in a 4-string and 5-string models




Introducing the Wing Bass

The Wing Bass was born out of the desire to have a “portable” instrument available at all times for travel, practice and performance. The concept is simple… place a capo at the twelfth fret of a standard bass and chop the neck off behind the capo. The result is the Wing Bass.


The Wing Bass uses standard strings and string spacing, providing a very familiar feel to a capoed standard bass above the 12th fret, so technique exercises being worked on, are not lost when switching back to a standard bass.


Small enough to fit in a 21” carry on, or placed at the seat in front of you, players can always have an instrument available even when traveling. A real asset when you are craving to play, yet away from home.


The Wing Bass is offered in a 4-string and 5-string model with options for body woods, fingerboards and string spacing (5 only). It is tuned an octave higher than standard (naturally), however running it through a really good octave down circuit will get you back down to standard range with satisfactory results.

John 5: Rob Zombie’s Great American Nightmare--the ultimate Halloween horror event

(2014 Great American Nightmare photos by Christopher Brielmaier


Rob Zombie’s Great American Nightmare--the ultimate Halloween horror event--returns to Odeum Expo Center in Villa Park, IL (just outside Chicago) for its second engagement from September 25-November 1. Tickets go on sale for all Great American Nightmare dates on Friday, July 31.

October 2 & 4 will also feature two special concerts with groundbreaking musician and filmmaker Rob Zombie.

"I am thrilled to be bringing The Great American Nightmare back to the Chicago area for its second year,” says Rob Zombie. “After last year's overwhelming response we've decided to return with a completely newNightmare. It's more vile and disgusting than ever. Have fun."

Rob Zombie’s Great American Nightmare 2015 will feature three attractions based on Zombie’s own horror films:

Captain Spaulding’s Clown School In 3D: This irreverent school of pure terror is a hallucinogenic trip through the mind of Captain Spaulding (House Of 1000 Corpses, The Devil’s Rejects). Startle after startle will thoroughly frighten even the bravest patrons, who won’t know if they should be laughing, screaming or crying.

The Devil’s Rejects: The murderous, backwoods Firefly family takes to the road to escape a vengeful police force that isn't afraid of being as ruthless as its target. Guests will become part of the state troopers’ search and destroy mission against the Firefly family, who are wanted for over 75 homicides and disappearances.

31: On October 30, 1975, five carnival workers are kidnapped and held hostage until the following night (Halloween), and are put in a compound named "Murder World." They're told that they are there to take part in a game named "31," where the goal is to survive the next 12 hours. This is made difficult by the fact that they are not alone in “Murder World” -- a violent gang of evil clowns are there and stalking their every move.

Captain Spaulding’s Clown School In 3D and The Devil’s Rejects debuted at Great American Nightmarein Scottsdale, Arizona last year. 31 is a brand new, never-before-seen haunt based on Rob’s forthcoming film of the same name.

The fully immersive haunted house experience at Rob Zombie’s Great American Nightmare will include the ALL NEW Bloody Boulevard with major carnival rides, freak shows, musical entertainment, roaming characters, themed food and beverages, games and vendors each night. Note: Carnival rides will not be open on concert nights.

Great American Nightmare producer Steve Kopelman says, ”Given the tremendous support we received last year in Chicago, we are extremely excited to make it the first location that we are coming back to. Last year was just a taste of what’s in store. This year will be Bigger, Badder and Bloodier! We can’t wait to show Chicagoland our all new event.”



Tickets for Rob Zombie’s Great American Nightmare go on sale Friday, July 31 at 9:00 AM CT, with prices starting at only $25. Each ticket includes access to all haunted house attractions and the Bloody Boulevard activities.



Tickets for October 2 & 4 include the Rob Zombie concert and will be available starting at only $45. A limited number of VIP packages will also be available for purchase at www.GreatAmericanNightmare.com. All VIP packages include a commemorative t-shirt and quicker access to the haunted attractions than general admission. Some packages also include a designated viewing area for the concert and a VIP-only bar.



Rob Zombie’s Great American Nightmare will celebrate the Halloween season on the following dates between September 25 and November 1:



September: 25, 26

October: 2, 3, 4, 9, 10, 11, 15, 16, 17, 18, 22, 23, 24, 25, 29, 30, 31

November: 1



Hours for Rob Zombie’s Great American Nightmare will be 7:00 PM until midnight (Fridays and Saturdays) and 7:00 PM until 10:00 PM (Thursdays and Sundays). On concert nights, Great American Nightmare will be open until midnight.



Rob Zombie’s Great American Nightmare is a creative collaboration between master of the macabre Rob Zombie and preeminent haunted house producer Steve Kopelman. The event is produced by Rob Zombie,Steve Kopelman and Andy Gould.



Odeum Expo Center is located at 1033 North Villa Avenue in Villa Park, IL, just outside Chicago. It’s easily accessible from downtown Chicago by major highways, and from the Tri-State area by tollways.

This three-and-a-half-hour-long creative seminar was cultivated to enlighten the modern musician through Batten’s real-world stories, and will offer multimedia demos on the tools and information available to help support a creative life; how to create and boost their brand; and how to make the law of attraction work for them. Audience members will be educated on the latest science of how the brain works to help magnetize the elements of their dreams.
In this seminar, Batten will teach attendees:

How their brain works and ways to optimally energize the mind and body
New tools to help unlock creativity and optimize practice habits
Practical information about domestic and foreign touring

Tom Hess: How To Easily Get A Lot More Music Gigs

How To Easily Get A Lot More Music Gigs
By Tom Hess
Are you unsure about what you must do to get more gigs? You could be causing problems for yourself by thinking that “venues aren’t looking for bands in this moment,” or “there’s too much competition for my band to stand a chance”. Fact is, these statements are based in excuses. Here are the actual facts when it comes to getting more gigs:
Clubs/venues are always trying to find killer musical acts to book (even though they book far in advance). That’s right, it’s not the musicians who are unable to get gigs, it’s the venues who struggle to find the right bands to play. Bookers and promoters throw away so much time (and money) by working with bands who just don’t know what the venue needs from them. As soon as you can become the kind of musician that venues are seeking, you’ll get tons of new gigs.

Four Critical Mistakes To Avoid When Trying To Get More Gigs:

Mistake One: Not making any effort to stand out from other bands.
If there is nothing that truly distinguishes your band from other local bands (whether it be your music, performance, etc.), you are greatly limiting your potential to get new gigs. Similarly, when your live performances are cool or unique, it is very likely to attract more people and venues will often be more eager to have you play for them. For instance, it’s not uncommon for bands to hire additional entertainers to come to their gigs (rather than working with an opening band) in order to attract a larger audience and make their shows more successful.

That being said, don’t invest all your time and energy into “being completely unique” just to get more gigs. “Being unique” alone doesn’t earn the venue more money unless it is integrated together with the points in the section below.

Mistake Two: Lacking great performance skills and know-how.
Before you can gain a dedicated, loyal following of fans who love seeing every show you play in, you must understand how to put on a great performance. Even if your music is great... if you don’t know how to truly entertain your fans with an exciting performance, they simply will not make the effort to come out and see you play. This greatly hurts your chances for getting new gigs because booking agents desperately need bands with both a great show and a loyal fanbase. Read this instructional column to learn more about putting on a good live show.

Mistake Three: Lacking the understanding of how to get more of your fans to come to live shows.
If you think the venue is going to make all of the efforts when it comes to promoting your shows, you will never be able to consistently get more gigs. Reality is, it’s your responsibility to inspire your fans to come to your shows – NOT the venue’s. If you struggle to get people to see your live shows, no one is going to work with you or offer you new opportunities to play at their venues.

Mistake Four: Not perceiving your band as a “business partner” with the venue owners at the venue(s) where you play.

The whole purpose of getting bands to play at a venue is to make money. When a venue looks for a new band, they try to find musicians who are already savvy when it comes to promoting themselves (specifically: their shows), and who understand what needs to happen to fill the house with fans, while putting on a great live show. Bands who are aware of how this is done, have a greater ability to help venues to earn more money and always get the best opportunities to take the higher-paying gigs. Musicians who are clueless about promotion simply cannot offer much to venues when it comes to earning more money – and thus, always struggle to find new gigs.

An effective way you can help venues make more money is to begin growing a list of local fans (by storing their e-mail addresses or other contact details). This shows the venue that you can provide them with a lot of value, because it shows that you can bring in new business whenever you perform.
What You Must Do To Get A Lot More Musical Gigs
To guarantee that you don’t make the same mistakes that keep other musicians from getting tons of gigs, have the mindset that all of the venues you play at are “business partners”, rather than just people who pay you to perform at their club.

Here are four important things that will help you do this:

1. Think more about the people you want to attract to your performances.
In addition to possessing a means for reaching out to your fans at any moment (for free), you must learn how to offer massive value to your fans and inspire them to come out and see you play. Get a better understanding for how this is done by reading this column about getting a lot of new music fans.

2. Put together a large list of fans and keep growing it at every one of your performances.
The power to communicate with all your fans at any time (for free), is essential for getting them to come see your live shows. If you can do this, you can easily display proof of your value to any venue you where you want to play. Without a database, you make everything infinitely harder in your music career. Build a database of your fans’ names/contact details and begin taking action to grow this list with every step you take in your career.

3. Work with a mentor who has already accomplished the things you want to accomplish in your music career.
Having a mentor is instrumental for helping you to understand the steps needed for transforming yourself into a much more valuable asset for any venue owner (resulting in you getting tons of new gigs).

4. Focus on helping venues earn more money.
Simply put, venues would be totally uninterested in having bands put on shows if doing so wasn’t going to help them earn more money. You need to prove to a venue that you are dedicated to consistently generating win-win outcomes for them and for you. To see how to do this, take this free six-day mini course on how to develop a successful music career.
Now that you understand more about what it takes to get more gigs for your band, take this assessment about booking more music gigs to see how close you are to becoming the musician all venues want to work with.

Joe Satriani: Shockwave Supernova new video, the album and UK tour details

photo: Chapman Baehler
Joe Satriani has just uploaded his official video for his single “Shockwave Supernova” on VEVO earlier today!!!




Shockwave Supernova is the title track from the album of the same name. The album was officially released worldwide on Friday July 24th. This is Satriani’s 15th studio album.

He will support the release of the album with a 9-date UK tour with special guest Dan Patlansky, which starts from November 1st at the Manchester O2 Apollo.

JOE SATRIANI  RELEASED 15th STUDIO ALBUM “SHOCKWAVE SUPERNOVA” ON FRIDAY 24TH JULY RELEASED ON CD, DOWNLOAD AND 2 LP VINYL

photo: Chapman Baehler
Legendary guitarist, JOE SATRIANI, released his 15th solo studio album, “SHOCKWAVE SUPERNOVA”, on Friday 24th July, making him one of the first to utilise the new “Friday, Global Release Day” for music.

It would be easy to call Shockwave Supernova a “masterpiece” or “the last word on guitar” from the world’s most commercially successful solo guitar performer. Satch, however, sees it much more personally. He has consistently advanced the artistry of the instrument; an effort he dedicated himself to on 18th September, 1970, the day his idol Jimi Hendrix died.

Recorded late last year at Skywalker Sound in Lucas Valley, California, Satriani assembled the dynamic trio of world-class musicians who had recently been part of his global tour; renowned keyboardist and guitarist Mike Keneally, a veteran of several Satch outings and recordings; along with drumming whiz Marco Minnemann and bass extraordinaire Bryan Beller. “I couldn’t have asked for a better band to help bring these songs to life,” says Satriani.

The album also sees Satriani once again joining forces co-producer and engineer John Cuniberti. Satch and Cuniberti share production on Shockwave Supernova, as they have on numerous albums – their shared history dates back to the guitar star’s 1986 debut album, Not Of This Earth and its follow-up, the platinum-selling, critically acclaimed, Surfing with the Alien. Click here to access the full online UK press release page - www.noblepr.co.uk/Press_Releases/joesatriani/shockwave-supernova.htm.

The album will be released on CD, download and 2 LP vinyl. Satriani’s World Tour begins 17th September in Europe (US Tour planned early 2016). The UK leg of the European tour starts November 1st at the O2 Apollo Manchester with special guest Dan Patlansky.
