Robben Ford: Play Along with Pro Musicians In TrueFire’s New Multi-Track Video Jam Software








Play Along with Pro Musicians In TrueFire’s New Multi-Track Video Jam Software

SAINT PETERSBURG, FL — Keyboardists, drummers, bassists, and even guitarists can all now have a chance to jam with Robben Ford. The legendary guitarist invites musicians to join him and his band in the studio. From the comfort of their own home, players can join these “live” sessions. Musicians can mute whatever instrument track they prefer and jump on in. They can even fill in for Robben! The multi-track video jams are pre-recorded, pre-loaded, and ready to go through TrueFire’s “In The Jam” downloadable software for Windows and Mac computers.

Travel back to Oct. 27, 2013, when Robben gathers several musicians in one of Nashville’s premier recording studios to lay down the tracks for his album, “A Day in Nashville.” Robben is joined by Audley Freed on rhythm guitar, Brian Allen on bass, Wes Little on drums, Barry Green on trombone and Ricky Peterson on B3 organ. Robben leads this all-star band through nine bluesy, soulful tunes before heading to Nashville’s famous House of Blues studio. There, he and co-producer Rick Wheeler lay down vocals and guitar tracks for each of the songs. True to its name, the album is completed in a day; however, the journey doesn’t end there. Robben heads down to TrueFire’s studios to record all-new rhythm and lead parts for the songs, all with close-up views of his performance.

In total, there are more than six hours of multi-angle video tracks to choose from, along with all the separate audio tracks to mix. “What’s really cool about the In The Jam software is that you can mute or solo any instrument. So if you’re interested in my rhythm part, or even the drum part, you can solo it up, listen to it and learn it. Or you can take it out and you can play rhythm along with my lead part, or mute the drum, keyboards or bass tracks and play those parts with the band.” says Robben. “No matter what instrument you play, there’s a place for you in the band even if you’re a vocalist.”

While at TrueFire studios, Robben recorded a commentary track for each of his new performances. He takes you through everything he plays, the inspirations behind his playing, and why he chooses certain chord voicings. The commentary is accompanied by guitar tabs and notations, along with lead sheets. Robben also filmed new lead and rhythm guitar parts for each tune doubling the educational value for guitarists.



The record covers a broad spectrum in terms of styles, including jazz, rock, blues and country—or as Robben puts it, “something for everybody.” It’s a testament to how this five-time GRAMMY® nominee has built his career as a premier electric guitarist in a variety of musical contexts. Named one of the “100 Greatest Guitarists of the 20th Century” by Guitar Player Magazine, Robben has played with artists as diverse as Joni Mitchell, Miles Davis, George Harrison, Bob Dylan, Greg Allman, Brad Paisley and more. Today, after 40 years on the road or in the studio, Robben graciously shares what he has learned with current and future musicians.

From start to finish and fully behind the scenes, TrueFire’s In The Jam platform is the perfect opportunity for musicians of various backgrounds to witness the creative process in a comprehensive, professional format.

Steve Hackett: The Total Experience Live In Liverpool DVD/CD



OUT NOW! Now available from the HackettSongs webstore!
Steve Hackett - The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway (Live In Liverpool) DVD/CD

Groundbreaking prog guitarist Steve Hackett has announced the release of his acclaimed Acolyte To Wolflight With Genesis Revisited Tour as 2CD/2DVD deluxe package and stand-a-lone Blu-Ray and, after three London concert videos, he chose the Liverpool date for the recording. The Total Experience Live In Liverpool will be released on 24th June.

"When Inside Out told me that I could film a gig on the British leg of the 2015 tour for release, I thought that we should do it away from London (and) I felt doing it in Liverpool had a certain ring to it" - explains Hackett enthusiastically - "This is an extraordinary city and the Philharmonic Hall is an extraordinary venue. Besides, it's not as if Liverpool is known for having any good music - there's never been a good band from there. Ha!"Hackett's love for Liverpool goes back to his time with Genesis: "We played there a few times in the '70s, and the fans have always been very good to me there. And as a huge Beatles fan, I also know the landmarks there, such as Penny Lane and Strawberry Fields. I have been on the Magical Mystery Tour. So, the city means a lot to me from that point of view as well. The Beatles set the benchmark for all of us who have followed; we take our imagination from them."



Celebrating the 40th anniversary of his first solo album 'Voyage Of The Acolyte' and following his latest 'Wolflight', the 'Acolyte to Wolflight with Genesis Revisited' tour was Steve's effort to represent the many chapters of his career. Featuring two sets - one highlighting his solo work, the second paying tribute to Genesis - the two hour performance was greeted with enthusiasm by both fans and critics.

"It wasn't an easy job to decide what to include, but I think there was a good balance between old and new." - Hackett comments. "What I have always born in mind when choosing the songs is what they mean to the fans. Time has a way of turning them into an emotional calendar for people. These songs take on an importance and become part of their lives. So, when I do them live, authenticity is important. I am aware that what I have to do is find a connection between nostalgia and what things can sound like in a contemporary setting". Liverpool was one of the dates with Amanda Lehmann guesting on 'Shadow Of The Hierophant', which was performed in its full version with an extended drum solo showcasing Gary O'Toole's skills, a triumphant closing to the first set.

A multi-camera shoot, the recording was done with no prior rehearsals, but Hackett had every confidence in the people he was working with. Paul Green, who did the filming and editing, and Ben Fenner, who mixed the audio, work with Steve regularly and knew exactly what he was looking for. "Paul was also very innovative" - Hackett reveals - "He used one particular technique to show what Gary was doing on drums, and it is an unusual effect I have never seen before. The drums seem to arc, because of the lens he's using. It gives a very different perspective to the whole viewing experience." The acoustics in the Philharmonic Hall were very impressive on the night, albeit rather challenging; Ben, who does the live sound for the band, took that challenge with superb results. What you hear in the mix, though, is exactly what the band sounded like on the night with no extensive 'fixing' in the studio, as live should be.

The Total Experience Live In Liverpool will be available as double CD plus double DVD digipak, separate Blu-Ray edition as well as digital album including the two audio CDs.

Dustin Behm, Shaun Chiodo: Increate's Debut Album VOID Indigogo - fundraiser



Increate has almost completed our debut album VOID, now in production by Metal GrandMaster Jocke Skog. Now we need help bringing this instrumental shred-fest to the Physical Realm! We're offering pre-orders, advance downloads, lessons, merch and live shows to help cover recording fees and costs of printing physical media.

Increate -- Void

Increate is an instrumental progressive metal band from Portland Oregon, consisting of Sean Chiodo and Dustin Behm on 8 string guitars, Zev Levine on bass, and Johannes Jans on drums. For our debut album VOID we were lucky to recruit master producer Jocke Skog of Sweden. The album also features the amazing talents of Gianluca Ferro, Julian Cifuentes, and Joe Chawki as guest soloists. We all came to this project with a desire to push the technical boundaries of instrumental death metal. We're thrilled with how the record is sounding and we want you to be part of the process!

So far we've funded every aspect of the project ourselves through our many day jobs but now we need help getting the music on physical media. We're making it happen by offering pre-release downloads, cds, lessons, merch, and live shows. This way anyone who wants our music can take part in its creation in a seriously meaningful way. Of our $3,290 goal, $2400 will go to production fees and $890 will go to purchasing and printing cds. If we don't reach our goal, we will still devote 100% of proceeds to finishing the project and getting our music out to the masses.

Want a Vinyl LP? – So do we. If there is enough interest (and we hit our goal for production fees) we'd love to produce VOID on vinyl. If you are interested type “Vinyl” in the comment section. Those who commit to buy one of the other perks can upgrade to vinyl if it becomes available. Vinyl pricing would be $20 for advance orders from a limited pressing of 200 copies; an additional $2200 above our goal. If this interests you please share our music and this page with your friends!

Want to help but financially challenged at the moment? We can use all the promotional help we can get. Please pass along our videos and share our info.

Thank you!
