Recommended Posts

Branching out... yeah that's what I do. Seriously though, I'm going to this, both for the class and for the performance that follows it. If anyone else is in the area and wants to check out the class or just the show, it's only $25 and the guy is a pro, and has a bunch of albums out, etc. Anywho, here's the official press release:

Blues Guitar Extraordinaire Chris Duarte Hosts Exclusive Master Class at the Trenton War Memorial

 

TRENTON, N.J. - Thursday, June 25, represents a fantastic opportunity for those whose thirst for knowledge is never quite satiated by the plethora of instructional DVDs and books out on the market.

 

 

Virtuosic bluesman Chris Duarte, once voted Best New Talent from readers of Guitar Player magazine, will be sharing his vast depth of knowledge in a 60 minute clinic at 5 p.m., preceding his performance at the Trenton War Memorial. Duarte , who has toured internationally for the past 18 years now, is thrilled to impart his philosophy on not only crafting memorable guitar solos, but also finding great tones in which to deliver them. This master class is free for all interested on a first come basis. For those interested, you are welcome to bring your own electric guitar.

 

The seminar will cover everything from basic soloing techniques to advanced application of melodic ideas toward soloing. Duarte will also expand on his own practice routine and devices that have proven helpful towards, making him the incredible player he has become. Time permitting, attendees will also enjoy the ability to jam out with Duarte , who will then advise them on ways to spruce up their playing, or maybe offer an insight that could help change their perspective on the instrument. Whether you are a serious player, or simply a curious hobbyist, the master class has something to offer anyone who has the passion to play the right notes.

 

Starting at 7 p.m., Chris Duarte Group will take the stage for two memorial sets. "On Patriots Stage - The Kaplan Series" is a unique experience in musical performance distinguishing itself from any other concert series in America by offering audiences a rare opportunity to share the stage with world-renowned musical artists and enjoy an up-close and personal evening of music as well as an opportunity to meet the performers.

    • Nice. I have absolutely no idea.  Iron Maiden / The Lord's Prayer reference... Bruce?

    • STAR is out now on bandcamp and for 24hrs only, it's free, or "name your price"! so if you want it go grab it.  As for the song it's more LeBrock Awesomeness with a killer solo from McRocklin. lebrock.bandcamp.com/track/star-feat-mcrocklin
    • From Frontiers: Frontiers Music is thrilled to announce the signing of Powell-Payne a dynamic four-piece band hailing from West Wales, United Kingdom! Formed by founding members Mark ""Penfold"" Powell (ex-drummer of Psycho Kiss) and Adam Payne (former vocalist of Airrace) in 2022, Powell-Payne's journey began with a single goal - to create a heartfelt song dedicated to their lost loved ones. Joined by their dear friends Adam Davies on guitar and Steve Leyshon on keyboards, Powell-Payne quickly realised the magic of their collaboration and decided to embark on a full album project together. Expanding their lineup to include the exceptional talents of Aydan Watkins on guitar and Alex Anderson on bass guitar, Powell-Payne is ready to rock the world with their electrifying sound! Watch the video "Distance Between us":    
    • These guys can be found with the silver bells and cockleshells.
    • From the KC FB page: Kingdom Come is excited to announce a 'Return to the Kingdom'   Kingdom Come will be kicking off 2024 with a new lineup, management, a new album, and a brand-new tour, starting March 15th at The Lamp Theatre in Irwin, PA. And the following night, March 16th, we will be in Lakewood, OH, at Mercury Music Lounge.  Two new band members will be joining our lineup. Veteran touring drummer Matt Muckle (Paul Gilbert, Lynch Mob) will be taking over drums for our dear recently-departed brother, James Kottak. And we're introducing the incredible Ezekiel Kaplan as our new vocalist.  We hope to see you all in March, and out on the road this year, as we 'Return to the Kingdom' to continue the legacy of Kingdom Come!  👑 https://kingdomcomerockband.com  
    • I think it's the other way around.  Still it's a very hooky album. I often thought a song doesn't necessarily have to end at 3:00 minutes. The endings are too abrupt sometimes.
