Chris Bieniek: Has Yngwie Met Miss Jones?

Has Yngwie Met Miss Jones? Yes! and this piece is their love child.
Really it's a technical arpeggio study I wrote that makes use of the famous Yngwie arpeggio sweep/ economy technique (with a few of my own variations on the idea) over the chord changes to the popular jazz standard 'Have You Met Miss Jones'.

The recording was done with a the fantastic Taurus Stomp-Head 4.SL. through a BadCat Celstion speaker box using and EverTune Strat with a JB in the bridge.

For anyone after a transcription of the study I will be selling the PDF for $5 U.S (email me ) chris@soundscapemusic.com.au and 100% of profits collected will go to BirdLife Australia a charity that works towards the conservation of Australia's endangered bird species.

Dave Martone: performs a solo acoustic nylon string guitar version of Aerosmith's "Dream On"

Dave Martone performs a solo acoustic nylon string guitar version of Aerosmith's "Dream On". Live in concert from June 30, 2015 recorded at Blue Frog Studios.

Listen to the studio version of "Dream On" on Dave Martone's latest album, "Nacimiento": http://magnacarta.net/DaveMartone/ind...

"Nacimiento" means birth or beginning. For Dave Martone, that means returning to his musical roots and revisiting his love of the nylon string guitar. The acoustic nylon string guitar has a warm, organic sound which fits the passion of the flamenco style on Dave’s new album. Dave brings his sense of style and musical energy to familiar movie and television tunes such as “Spider-Man”, “Rocky” and “The Godfather”; as well as hard rock favorites with Aerosmith’s “Dream On” and Europe’s “The Final Countdown”. Dave also performs guitar standards such as “Classical Gas”, “Maria Elena” and “Malagueña”. And, even Boney M’s lush disco classic “Rasputin” gets the flamenco treatment.

“My father started me off at age 6 on the nylon guitar and that is where I needed to return. I hope you can enjoy this album for what it means to me, and how I find the sound of the nylon guitar so inspiring, so raw, so pure, so beautiful."
Thank you
Dave Martone

David Wallimann: Melodic Guitar Contest

I am super excited to announce a fun inspiring guitar contest that will put your musical chops to the test. This is a melodic theme development contest open to anyone in the world.

The object is to create a super catchy theme that will grab the listener's attention right away. Your theme should not need any introduction. Your job is to capture the listener's attention right from the first few notes. As a matter of fact, I will only listen to the first few seconds of your solo. That's usually all it takes for a listener to make a decision as to committing to listening to the rest of your song anyways.

Entering is super easy, and if you are amongst the 3 selected players you will receive a $50 Amazon gift card, and be featured on Guitar Playback's Facebook and Twitter pages.

Here is how you can enter:

1. Download this backing track (right click and “save as"): https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/7...
2. Video yourself playing your theme over the track
3. Upload your video to Youtube
4. Name your video "Guitar Playback Melodic Theme Contest"
5. Submit your entry here: https://goo.gl/4XOzwG

The contest officially ends September 20th.
Results will be announced on a newsletter September 30th
You can enter as many times as you want!
