The Guitarist's Palette

Diatonic Scales
Author: Joe Baer Magnant
Publisher: Createspace Independent Publishing Platform
ISBN: 9781530715459
Page: 192
View: 6283
Designed as a complete method, a study philosophy, a practice log, and an encyclopedia, The Guitarist's Palette explores the seven diatonic modes and their relationship to the fretboard. Using a four-step practice method, you'll be guided by a simple single-string major scale through seven six-string scale forms and advanced superimpositions. Rather than focusing on visual representations alone, ear training-based exercises teach the relationships between scales, chord tones, and tensions. "It is important to remember that The Guitarist's Palette contains knowledge that you can apply to music in general, rather than specific dialects of particular genres. Because of this universality, there are no style-specific lessons. Instead, the book thoroughly maps out the different tones (or colors) on the fretboard in a harmonic context. These approaches can then be modified using melodic, harmonic, and rhythmic ideas. This method could be utilized just as effectively by a speed metal shredder, a harmonically daring jazz improviser, or a note-efficient folky." - Page 10 Guitarists using the book should already be familiar with modes, intervals, basic chords, and seventh chords. The Guitarist's Palette can be used as a self-teaching guide or as a method book for instructors.

As lead guitarist of the Rolling Stones, Keith Richards created the riffs, the lyrics, and the songs that roused the world. A true and towering original, he has always walked his own path, spoken his mind, and done things his own way. Now at last Richards pauses to tell his story in the most anticipated autobiography in decades. And what a story! Listening obsessively to Chuck Berry and Muddy Waters records in a coldwater flat with Mick Jagger and Brian Jones, building a sound and a band out of music they loved. Finding fame and success as a bad-boy band, only to find themselves challenged by authorities everywhere. Dropping his guitar's sixth string to create a new sound that allowed him to create immortal riffs like those in "Honky Tonk Woman" and "Jumpin' Jack Flash." Falling in love with Anita Pallenberg, Brian Jones's girlfriend. Arrested and imprisoned for drug possession. Tax exile in France and recording Exile on Main Street. Ever-increasing fame, isolation, and addiction making life an ever faster frenzy. Through it all, Richards remained devoted to the music of the band, until even that was challenged by Mick Jagger's attempt at a solo career, leading to a decade of conflicts and ultimately the biggest reunion tour in history. In a voice that is uniquely and unmistakably him--part growl, part laugh--Keith Richards brings us the truest rock-and-roll life of our times, unfettered and fearless and true. Richards' rich voice introduces the audiobook edition of LIFE and leads us into Johnny Depp's performance, while fellow artist Joe Hurley bridges the long road traveled before Richards closes with the final chapter of this incredible 23-hour production, which includes a bonus PDF of photos.

As more and more guitarists begin to use amp simulation software, it becomes increasingly important for them to have a tool that will help them to get the most out of it. That tool has arrived in the form of THE GUITARIST'S GUIDE TO SONAR. Designed for guitarists of varying levels of experience with music software, this book covers some of the considerations unique to recording guitar with any computer-based system, and then progresses into guitar-specific techniques for Cakewalk SONAR. The first eight chapters are designed to flow in order, but after that, the book is more of a collection of tools and tips that you can dip into as needed. Are you having problems nailing a solo? Then check out the chapter "Perfect Takes with Composite Recording." Miss the sound of that ancient phase shifter you sold on eBay? Then read "How to Emulate Vintage Effects." Not happy with the sound of amp sims? There are plenty of ways to sweeten their sound, as described in "How to Improve Amp Sim Tone." Think of this book as a reference that can help you solve problems, but also, there's a lot of material intended to inspire you to try new and different techniques and get your creative juices flowing.

To those of us who love the guitar, music theory can seem somehow out of reach. It's a thing that some guitarists seem to just 'get,' and that others can't seem to get their heads around at all. Well, not anymore... This may be the first time you've heard his name, however Steve Maase has been a guitar legend in Albuquerque, New Mexico since the 1960's. He passed away on October 1, 2016, the morning after he finished writing this book. To those who knew him, Steve was arguably one of the most gifted and under-heard guitarists of his generation. But he is most remembered as a teacher who genuinely cared about his students. Steve gave nearly a hundred guitar lessons a week for more than 50 years and changed many of his students' lives in the process.
