Chelsea Constable, Grace Constable: Taylor Guitars - A Tribute to Django Reinhardt - sisters killing it!

Hey everyone, it's Chelsea Constable. Wanted everyone to hear how versatile our amazing Taylor Guitars are! Grace is playing the 812ce (rhythm guitar) and I am playing one of my favorite Taylor's - the amazing 714ce (lead/rhythm guitar). This particular piece is by one of my favorite guitarist, Mr. Django Reinhardt. Hope you enjoy our interpretation of "Rhythm Futur"! A very special thanks to Taylor Guitars, Martin Walters, Tim Altonen, and my sister Grace for holding down the amazing timing in the rhythm on this, not to mention using a thumb-pick to do this with! Also, I added the bass after the fact.

Nathan East, Lemmy Kilmister: Bass Play Live 2015 - the details

Bass Player Magazine returns for its eighth year in Los Angeles with the premier live bass guitar event, Bass Player LIVE! 2015, on Saturday, November 7 and Sunday, November 8.SIR Studios, at 6465 Sunset Blvd. in Hollywood, will once again be the location for two days of exhibits by top gear manufacturers and clinics by world-class bassists. An All-Star Concert featuring this year’s award recipients will be held on the evening of November 7 at Musicians Institute, 6752 Hollywood Blvd.

Highlights of this much-anticipated bass bash include:

*A Bass Player Lifetime Achievement Award presented to session legend Nathan East, who will accept his award and perform with his band at the All-Star Concert on November 7, and host a clinic at SIR on November 8. Following 35 years as a first-call Los Angeles studio ace, recording with everyone from Whitney Houston, Lionel Richie and Phil Collins to Eric Clapton, Fourplay and Daft Punk, Nathan at last made his solo debut in 2014 with his chart-topping, self-titled album on the Yamaha Artist Group label. His follow-up, The New Cool, with Bob James, was just released.

*A Bass Player Lifetime Achievement Award will be given to Motörhead bass icon Lemmy Kilmister, who will accept his award at the All-Star Concert on November 7. Lemmyand Motörhead are celebrating 40 years of the world’s biggest and baddest rock & roll band of all time in 2015, and just released their 22nd studio album, Bad Magic (UDR Music/Motörhead Music).

*A posthumous Bass Player Lifetime Achievement Award presented to the family of the late Louis Johnson at the All-Star Concert, followed by a tribute set featuring Louis’s bass peers; plus a tribute clinic hosted by Brothers Johnson guitarist George Johnson at SIR on Nov. 8. Passing in 2015 at age 60, Louis “Thunder Thumbs” Johnson forged a landmark career that found him furthering the art of bass playing (and slapping in particular) both as a member of the Brothers Johnson ("Stomp," "Strawberry Letter #23") and as a top session bassist with Michael Jackson (Off the Wall, Thriller), Quincy Jones, Paul McCartney and many more.

*Clinic appearances by Duran Duran’s John Taylor and Ben Kenney of Incubus.

*A special clinic presentation by session legend Chuck Rainey, joined by fellow studio greats James Gadson on drums and Larry Nash on keyboards.

*A probing pedal and effects clinic by The Mars Volta bassist and author of BP’s “Tonal Vision” column, Juan Alderete.

*A throwdown clinic by gospel bass master Andrew Gouche and his band in support of his new album, We Don’t Need No Bass.

*Bass and vocal phenomenon Tal Wilkenfeld (Jeff Beck, Herbie Hancock)--who received the Bass Player LIVE! “Young Gun” award in 2013--in her first BP LIVE! clinic since 2009.

*TV’s “face of bass,” award-winning producer, and former American Idol and The Tonight Show With Jay Leno bandleader Rickey Minor will hold his annual clinic.

* The Bass Player LIVE! debut of virtuoso bassist/producer and Rope A Dope recording artist Bill Dickens, who will present a clinic in support of his new album Tha Truth.

Also slated this year is the return of Mike Merritt’s TV Bass Roundtable with The Late Late Show’s Hagar Ben Ari making her BP LIVE! debut; an All-Star rock roundtable clinic withdUg Pinnick and Blasko; and artist appearances by Verdine White, Stu Hamm, "Ready" Freddie Washington, Oskar Cartaya, Rhonda Smith, Janek Gwizdala, Jerry Jemmott, Bryant Siono, Jimmy Earl, Phil Chen, Bobby Vega, Sean Hurley, Steve Jenkins, Bunny Brunel, Rufus Philpot, Byron Miller, Scott Reeder, Tony Franklin, Marty O'Brien and more.

Ben Monder: Ben Monder, Pete Rende, Andrew Cyrille, Paul Motian: Amorphae **Releasing October 2015**

Ben Monder, Pete Rende, Andrew Cyrille, Paul Motian: Amorphae **Releasing October 2015**
Ben Monder (electric guitar, electric baritone guitar); Pete Rende (synthesizer); Andrew Cyrille (drums, percussion); Paul Motian (drums)
Guitarist Ben Monder first recorded for ECM as a member of the Paul Motian Band on Garden of Eden in 2004, and Amorphae was originally conceived as a series of duets for Ben and Paul. A first exploratory duo session was recorded in 2010. After Motians death the following year it was decided to expand and complete the project with another highly influential and innovative drummer, Andrew Cyrille, adding also Pete Rende on synthesizer on two pieces.
So here we hear Monder solo, in duo with Motian, in duo with Cyrille, and in trio with Cyrille and Rende. This range of expressive options casts light upon Monders musical concepts and their adaptability. A guitarists guitarist, Monder is also a master of texture and unusual voicings, creating what one reviewer has called detailed sonic landscapes of mystery and power.
All the music on Amorphae is his, apart from, Oh, What a Beautiful Mornin, the Rodgers & Hammerstein chestnut from the musical Oklahoma!, performed here by Monder and Motian.

Jimi Hendrix: The Jimi Hendrix Experience: Live At The Atlanta Pop Festival

The Jimi Hendrix Experience: Live At The Atlanta Pop Festival
Jimi Hendrix (guitar, vocals); Billy Cox (bass); Mitch Mitchell (drums)
By the beginning of the 1970s, Jimi Hendrix was unquestionably one of the most exciting rock musicians of his generation, having captivated the world with his highly stylized approach to blues guitar. Paul McCartney freely admits to worshiping him, adding, “We all played guitar. We all knew a bit. But he seemed to know more than us.”
Jimi Hendrix put the rock festival concept on the map with his blistering performance at California’s Monterey Pop Festival in 1967, headlining 1968’s inaugural Miami Pop Festival, and providing the soundtrack for the counterculture with a dazzling set at Woodstock in 1969.
His performance at the Second Atlanta International Pop Festival was not only significant on a musical level, but also in terms of socio-political dynamics. The organizers were keen to push back against the cultural divide that was very much in evidence in the Deep South. It was assumed that rural audiences would not take kindly to “long-hair” bands, and that black and white artists could not comfortably exist on the same bill; Atlanta Pop set out to challenge those beliefs. Hendrix’s music and message of universal love made him the ideal artist to represent that pushback, and, appropriately, was the first act booked for the festival.
In the sweltering Georgia heat, amongst intimidating bikers who were hired as security, hundreds of thousands of mostly young music fans descended upon the festival grounds, eventually knocking over fences and leaving the organizers with no choice but to declare it a free event. Law enforcement, not equipped to handle such crowds, adopted a hands-off policy with regards to crowd control, drug use and nudity. Against incredible odds, the event proved to be largely peaceful. By the time the Jimi Hendrix Experience took the stage on the evening of July 4, the audience swelled to more than 300,000.
Massive, anarchic music fests in the U.S., unencumbered by high ticket prices and corporate sponsors were soon to be extinct, and the Atlanta Pop Festival was the last of this dying breed. Glenn Phillips (Hampton Grease Band) says, “This was, certainly in retrospect, sort of the end of an era, and a great end to an era. It was a powerful moment.”

Vinnie Moore: musicguy247 interview

V.M. - My first guitar was a Teisco which I got for Christmas from JC Penney’s. I almost quit after my first lesson because it didn’t go so well. But for the next week, I practiced what I had been shown over and over. When I went in for the next lesson the teacher was impressed and almost couldn’t believe I was the same kid. I pretty much became obsessed with it after that. Of course some of the first things I tried to play were smoke on the water, beatles songs, as well as jeff beck and peter Frampton parts. My teacher couldn’t show me anymore and recommended another teacher named Nick Bucci. I studied with him for a few years and he showed me a lot of stuff and taught me about music theory. I also joined a band and was learning things from the other guitarist in the band

Julian Rodriguez: Elitist - Domino Theory - farewell performance with free goodies

Hey guys, after 5 years of being a band we have decided to close the book on Elitist.

To everyone who supported us over the years, Equal Vision Records, and to all of the former band members who contributed along the way, we thank you dearly. Recording albums and being able to tour with bands we've looked up to for years, was more than enough for us.

Keep an eye on the members of the band as we will be undergoing new musical ventures in the future.

We will leave you with with a few re-recorded / re-interpreted instrumentals of "Caves", "Principles" and a few unused demos and unreleased material....because why not!

Mike Oldfield: “The Space Movie” Original Soundtrack To Be Released On CD For The First Time

Mike Oldfield's “The Space Movie” Original Soundtrack To Be Released On CD For The First Time

"London, UK - GONZO Multimedia will be releasing a newly restored and (finally) complete edition of Mike Oldfield and Tony Palmer's “The Space Movie.” For the very first time the original soundtrack featuring all the talk-back between the astronauts and ground control, as well as orchestral versions of music by Mike Oldfield will be released on CD!

This classic film was originally commissioned by London Weekend Television and Virgin Films in 1979 to mark the 10th Anniversary of the first landing on the moon, July 21st 1969. A recent discovery of a print in mint condition has enabled us to issue the film in a sparkling new (and complete!) edition.

Producer Tony Palmer explains, “The invitation to make the film came out of the clear blue sky from NASA in January 1978. I was invited to Washington and shown the mountain of film NASA had collected from the very beginnings with John Glenn, the first astronaut to orbit the earth in February 1962, until Apollo 17 December 1972. Use whatever I wanted, I was told, plus all the talk-back between ground control in Houston and the various space missions. NASA's extraordinary and spectacular images made me realize I had access to a treasure house beyond imagination.

“From the beginning, I wanted Mike Oldfield to write the music, and the soundtrack which emerged – a combination of hitherto unreleased recordings including the orchestral versions of Oldfield's early masterpieces, 'Tubular Bells' and 'Hergest Ridge' - is remarkable, perfect in every way; evocative, powerful, an inspiring match for the images. And I'm sure it is that, plus of course the astonishing NASA footage and the sound of the astronauts chatting away in space. Virgin Films may have long gone, but together these elements made and make the film what it is - something rather special.”

At a Gala Screening in the Egyptian Cinema in Hollywood in 2008, the film was introduced by Buzz Aldrin, the second man to walk upon the moon. He said: “It gives me enormous pleasure, and a thrill, to be able to introduce Tony Palmer's remarkable film about our space adventures. I say remarkable because at the time it was made, 1978/9, very little of the footage you are about to see had ever been seen in public, images which are now so familiar as to be truly iconic. But it was Tony who used them first, and we are very pleased that he did, even if he did construct the longest take-off in history! I still get a chill hearing some of the talk-back which, like the footage, NASA had provided for Tony to use. When the rocket takes off, boy is that a roller-coaster ride, bumpy as hell. So when you hear my voice saying 'little bit of shaking there', you'll know what I mean! So thank you Tony for what you did.”

The distinguished film critic Alexander Walker said after the first screenings: “The best British film screened at Cannes (in 1980) was Mike Oldfield and Tony Palmer's 'The Space Movie', with unique footage from NASA and music by Mike Oldfield. Palmer’s film combines both in a wonderful, at times profoundly moving, tribute to the astronauts from Cape Kennedy. The film includes one of the finest space launches ever collated, with footage that is unbelievably spectacular. Full marks to director Tony Palmer. The result is breathtaking, beautiful and brilliant.”

This version comes complete with Director's Cut BONUS DVD of the movie.

For more information:

Release Date: 16th October 2015

An exclusive screening of the 80-minute restored version of “The Space Movie” will be held at Cinema 2 at The Barbican in London on Sunday 15th November at 6 pm.

Guthrie Govan: Odd Time Licks: Vol.2 7/8

*NEW* Guthrie Govan's Odd Time Licks Vol.2 7/8

Download Link:

Back by popular demand, world renowned guitarist Guthrie Govan continues with his popular 20 licks series on guiding you through some of his favourite odd time signatures. Guthrie's 20 licks will finally lift the veil on odd time soloing and help you to play creatively and comfortably over any 7/8 groove!

These licks are designed to inspire and encourage you to get more familiar with what a bar of 7 feels like. It's often the case that players are quite wary about playing over any time signature that has a bigger number than 4 on top. Guthrie wanted to encourage people to conquer that fear and feel just as 'at home' in 7, as they would in more popular time signatures such as 3/4 and 4/4.

Guthrie's intention here was to keep his harmonic approach very focused allowing the rhythmic aspect of his licks to shine through over the odd time track. Guthrie says 'My main priority when coming up with these 20 licks was just to go for rhythmic emphasis and to give you ideas of how you can phrase within that time signature rather than throwing any complex harmonic ideas at you. It seemed to me that it was better just to focus on one aspect of the music at a time, so harmonically it's very simple, and rhythmically you're free to explore using some of the ideas in these licks just as guidelines'.

By watching and listening to Guthrie playing his licks over this odd time groove, and by studying the accurate TAB/Notation/lick notes, you will learn a great deal from Guthrie about the different ways in which you could phrase your own lines over these odd time grooves. Once you've got the hang of Guthrie's licks it's time to start creating your own!

The highly jammable jamtrack in this package has been designed to help you feel like you are playing in a more musical 'band context'. By spending some quality time with this backing track and by mastering Guthrie's licks, this package will help you to feel more at home with the odd time groove and allow you to finally jam as freely in 7/8 as you would in any other popular time signature.

As ever, we have accurately transcribed every note and included the TAB/notation in the download, full backing tracks, audio solos and track notes.
