Shaun Baxter: A Pinch or Two - example from AMBA online Foundation Degree for Guitar

This technical study (here played at a moderate speed) is a typical example of the ones featured on the AMBA online Foundation Degree for Guitar. This particular one is devoted to applying pinched harmonics.
On the course, written entirely by me, you will get detailed bar-by-bar instructions of how to execute each study in the most effective way, and will then be expected to apply the techniques that you have learned within your own composition(s).
If you would like to find out more, go to and follow the link to ‘FD (Arts) Music Performance Guitar’

Phil Collen, Robert DeLeo: DELTA DEEP - Announce East Coast "Sugar Shack" Tour...



(Los Angeles – February 11, 2016) DELTA DEEP, the critically acclaimed blues-based band featuring Phil Collen (lead guitarist of Def Leppard) and Robert DeLeo (bassist for Stone Temple Pilots), in addition to Debbi Blackwell-Cook (back-up vocalist for such artists as Michael Buble & Gregory Hines) and Forrest Robinson (drummer for India.Arie, Joe Sample & The Crusaders, TLC), are set to continue their 2016 Sugar Shack Tour with a run up the East Coast this Spring. Beginning on March 28th in Washington, DC the quartet will hit Philly, Asbury Park, Northampton, MA before heading into NYC, Boston and finishing up with a spot at Daryl’s House, the venue owned by Hall & Oates’ Darryl Hall. The east coast leg of the Sugar Shack tour ends on April 8 in Bay Shore, NY with more dates to be announced shortly.

DELTA DEEP will be touring in support of their soon to be released live album, featuring songs recorded during the inaugural January “Sugar Shack” west coast run. The January run featured sold-out shows with fans and critics’ alike raving about the bands live show. Elmore Magazine declared, “Delta Deep is a rocking force due to bring down any house– historical or modern.” While San Francisco’sBAM Magazine said, “the live experience for Delta Deep is one not to be missed…Debbi Blackwell-Cook is mesmerizing!”

Collen initially started DELTA DEEP in 2012 after jamming over the course of a year with friend and relative, Debbi Blackwell-Cook. What started as a casual pairing singing Motown and classic blues staples quickly became a quartet who share a love for soul, funk and the blues when they added STP’s DeLeo and drummer Forrest Robinson.

AXS Entertainment proclaims, "The goal of (DELTA DEEP) is to create music that revives an appreciation for blues music. Mission accomplished." Glide Magazine says, “Collen has used the blues as a base, a foundation, on which to build his songs up from, adding in textures of R&B, soul and down & dirty rock & roll.” LA Music Blog declares “(Delta Deep’s) style of rock and blues is unique and consistently entertaining,”

Jeff Beck: Celebrates 50 Years - with Special Hollywood Bowl Show


(Los Angeles, CA) It was in March of 1965 that a young JEFF BECK was recruited by iconic band, The Yardbirds to succeed Eric Clapton on the recommendation of Jimmy Page. After innumerable live performances, ground-breaking albums and one of the most acclaimed careers as one of the premiere guitarists of our time, JEFF BECK celebrates 50 years of dynamic music making.

On August 10, 2016, BECK will make a very special appearance at the Hollywood Bowl, joined that evening by close friend and long-time collaborator, Buddy Guy, himself celebrating his 80th birthday!

“Sharing the stage and this moment with Buddy is a dream for me. His live concerts are legendary and the music world would be a very boring place without his influence.” - Jeff Beck

Over the course of Beck’s illustrious 50-year career, the trailblazing guitarist has earned many accolades. He’s been inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame – twice! First as a member of the Yardbirds in 1992 and then again, as a solo artist in 2009. Rolling Stone Magazine ranked him as one of the “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time” and he has earned a total of 8 Grammy Awards during his long career. In addition, BECK has been a guest performer at scores of sessions with everyone from Stevie Wonder and Buddy Guy to Tina Turner and Mick Jagger. Throughout his career, BECK routinely makes the fantastically difficult sound effortless.

Currently, BECK has been hard at work on his first book, focused on his twin inspirations - hot rodding and rock'n'roll - now bound together. The London-based Genesis Publishing Group plans to release BECK01, a high quality “signed, limited-edition” book, this year. In BECK01 Jeff Beck takes us on the journey of a lifetime. Over five decades, he has blazed a trail, forging a unique guitar style lauded by critics, fans and fellow guitar legends. Said BECK, “Right from the beginning, I've tried to do something with anything I've got hold of. At the age of 13, I built two or three of my own guitars. I painted the frets on. It was fun just to look at it and hold it… I knew where I was headed.” In addition, BECK is hard at work on an officially sanctioned documentary and is currently penning his own autobiography.
