BEST IN THE WEST, NASHVILLE GUITAR. Richard Kochli. CD TABLATURE

The History, the Players and the Technique of Country Guitar by Richard Kochli

276 pagine di esempi di Country, Rockabilly, Swing, Nashville, blues, Rock. CD TABLATURE

A comprehensive analysis of American country music from a European perspective, this massive 275-page book comes with a companion CD with 97 tracks. Everything from basic rhythm accompaniment to blazing bluegrass solos is addressed including: Carter lead style, fingerpicking, rockabilly riffs, Nashville lead styles, Western swing and honky-tonk, country blues and rock, Cajun history and styles, and a forecast of the future of country. The book is carefully structured with progressively arranged exercises, theory lessons and original and traditional tunes.

This book should prove to be an important resource for country music enthusiasts. All 387 musical examples appear in both standard notation and tablature. Complete lyrics are provided when applicable. Köchli's love and mastery of the entire spectrum of country music is evident throughout.

To me, country music, or just "country" is one of the basic, high voltage,
artistic movements of the 20th Century. It's a movement and a style that, like
jazz, grew out of the huge melting pot of the United States. Country jumps,
it's alive, it's down home - and it comes from the heart. Those who don't
know it may reduce it to the cliches of "Marlboro-Country" or cowboy movies.
But, they couldn't be more wrong: the country sound is a rich mix of musical
influences, and the innovations of some brilliant instrumentalists. And, best
of all, its approachable, hands-on music; if you play the guitar, you've got to love it.
"Best In The West" is not only my humble attempt to close a gap in the
sector of European instructional literature, but also a way to pay my dues.
When I was in your shoes a couple of years ago, I benefited from some
terrific musicians who reached out to me with their music and instruction
books. Now, I'm honored to be able to make my won contribution by helping
you learn this great style. I also hope, through these chapters and exercises,
that your guitar will become a little more personal - and more exciting.
The book intends to give you a far-reaching overview covering all of the
major guitar styles and techniques to be found in country. Over three
hundred exercises, licks, and traditionals, as well as explanations, styles,
analyses, and hints from the "real world" are meant to inspire you on your
way to becoming a true country player. But country is a lot more than
technique, so I try to give a brief historical background for each major style,
and a little bit about the people who made it happen in the first place.
Therefore, each of the ten chapters starts with some information meant to
put you in the right mood, while the individual workshops contain examples
of the great pioneers of each particular style.
Playing country music is meant to be enjoyed by all sorts of people, so this
book wasn't written with just professionals in mind; it offers something for
everyone. Every chapter is separated into three levels of difficulty:
• Level 1: For newcomers: basic introductory playing as a prerequisite.
• Level 2: For the more advanced: some experience in playing country music and emphasis on variety and specific styles.
• Level 3: For the pros and country-cats: specific techniques, styles, and new horizons.
Of course, there is no strict borderline between the different levels. They
can't be more than a guideline for your selection of exercises. Learning is an
individual thing, so if you're ready to move before I am partner, take off.
The final chapter, "Theory", offers a summary of the most important basics,
scales, chords, and so on. It's meant to help you understand concepts more
easily, and to support and accelerate your learning process.
Originally, country music was a simple form of expression, which was deeply
rooted in the human spirit and spoke to people where they lived. So, it's
important to keep in mind that technical skill is secondary to the "feel" of the
music, its emotion. Because of this, the enclosed CD helps you get started
by introducing you to the sounds, and wide variety of nuances, in country

EARLY ROCK SET GIG GUIDE. VOCALS, GUITAR, KEYBOARD, BASS, DRUMS. CD TABLATURE

EARLY ROCK SET GIG GUIDE. CD TABLATURE

CD include full-band demonstrations

The Performance Guide for Bands
Series: Gig Guide
Softcover with CD - TAB
Artist: Various

The Gig Guides series is designed to provide musicians with a blueprint for building bands. We select the songs, put 'em in order, and show you how to play 'em. The format is simple; there are no unwieldy note-for-note scores to sightread or complicated theory to understand. Just here's the lead sheet, here are the parts you really need to know, and away you go! These book/CD packs are the ultimate do-it-yourself kit for gigging musicians and up-and-coming performers alike. Can be used by a full band or individual players. Early Rock Set features 12 songs with a CD of full-band demos of each song so you can hear what you should be sounding like. Songs include, 104 pages.

 

How to Use the Gig Guide
This book is laid out with performance in mind. The setlist we have selected reflects a wide selection of the most accessible, "field-tested" material available, arranged for a four-piece band with vocals in a sequence that's meant to keep your audience entertained. Use it in rehearsal and performance, following along with the lead sheets and individual parts. Each song in the set includes:
• A lead sheet with chords, melody, and lyrics;
• An overview page with song facts, song form, and performance tips for the full band;
• A page of guidelines for each band member, including crucial parts and performance tips for vocals, guitar, keyboards, bass, and drums. Overview pages contain useful information about each song: the story behind it, when and by whom it was recorded, the form, and how to present it. Parts and performance tips are written by professional musicians with field experience (not just some guy in a cubicle). If all band members follow their parts in the book and the accompanying CD, and the band rehearses well, you will be gig-ready in no time.

About the CD
The audio CD represents a live performance of the setlist by a four-piece group. The songs are played in the most standard, tried-and-true arrangements for vocals, guitar, keyboards, bass, and drums, remaining faithful (within reason) to the original versions. In order to cover the vocals as recorded, at least three-if not all-band members should be able to sing. Listen to the recording as you practice your individual parts, paying attention to the feel and the sounds used.

Early rock 'n' roll (mid 1950s-early '60s) remains one of the world's most popular and enduring musical forms. Born in a simpler, more innocent era, this good-time party music was chiefly enjoyed by the younger set; but because it appeals to the youngster that lives within all of us, regardless of age, it has thrived for almost half a century.
We'll start our early rock set in a mellow tone with "Under the Boardwalk," an easy-going, romantic classic by the Drifters. This 1964 Top 10 hit encapsulates the very essence of this acclaimed vocal group: strong lead vocals (courtesy of Johnny Moore) backed by sophisticated harmonies, topped off with superior production standards and a spotless arrangement-qualities that are echoed in other hits such as "On Broadway," "Up on the Roof," "Save the Last Dance for Me," and "There Goes My Baby."
"Under the Boardwalk" is based on I-IV-V changes (G-C-D7) in the key of G, with a modulation to the relative key of E minor at the end of the chorus (Em-D). The first great hook lies in the melodic bass line. The guitarist plays muted arpeggios throughout-make sure they remain "in the pocket" of the groove. The keyboard player needs to dial up a rich string section patch for the solo section and the melody lines that sprinkle the arrangement. Whichever bandmember sings should use an intimate delivery in the verses and power it up a bit on the chorus. Background vocals are mostly unison, so be extra careful with the pitch; make sure you can hear yourselves clearly in the monitors.
Before you start your set, go over this quick checklist to make sure that:
• Everyone has a clean monitor mix and can hear each other clearly;
• The guitar and bass are in tune with the keyboards;
• The stage volume is balanced and the lead vocals can be heard over the top of the mix;
• All bandmembers can see each other and can be seen by the audience;
• Everyone is set up, relaxed, and ready to play.

HAYNES WARREN GUIDE TO SLIDE GUITAR CD TABLATURE LIBRO SPARTITI CHITARRA MUSICA

HAYNES WARREN, GUIDE TO SLIDE GUITAR. CD TABLATURE

Learn the slide guitar stylings of Warren Haynes from the man himself! The legendary guitarist of Gov't Mule, Phil Lesh and Friends, the Grateful Dead, and the Allman Brothers Band offers instructions on choosing a slide, perfecting left- and right-hand techniques, playing rhythm, and blues soloing-on electric and acoustic. The Warren Haynes Guide to Slide Guitar will give you the most in-depth and personal lessons ever on how to play slide guitar in the style of Warren Haynes. Also includes a split-channel CD of the exercises, played by Warren himself with a full band. Listen to the master or solo along to the backing tracks!

Description

A unique book and CD from the hands of a true slide guitar legend - Warren Haynes. As guitarist with The Allman Brothers Band and The Grateful Dead, Haynes has forged himself a reputation as one of the greatest slide players in rock history, and you can now get a candid guide to his style from the man himself!

Haynes covers every part of your development as a slide guitarist, from choosing the best slide for you and perfecting the basic techniques to playing rhythm parts and blues soloing. A CD is included that features split-channel recordings of Warren performing all examples with a full band... either listen to the master at work, or solo along to the backing track and get your slide licks really cookin'. 48 pages

... them, all of which paved the way for the new in-concert set. "I think we've always wanted to do a live album since we got together," says Haynes. "We're just happier in a concert situation, though it wasn't intentional that we'd do two studio discs first, just like the original ABBdid before Fillmore East. But just like then, our songs sound better in concert and, in fact, the Allman Brothers are and will always be a live band. We even cut our studio albums live, with everybody set up in the room and playing all at once. Most of the guitar solos that Dickey and I cut in the studio are live on the tape as they went down, which is very unusual. Of course, we go for that same spontaneity live and instead of just trading straight solos, sometimes we just bob and weave, leaving spaces for the other to fill in with harmonies, unison bits or counterpoint - it's all unplanned and experimental, like Miles Davis and John Coltrane improvising together or 'Trane and Cannonball Adderly. And we leave the mistakes and mishaps in while recording live, too. Like when I'm soloing in the first half of 'Blue Sky,' I start playing straight lead and then you can hear where I switch to slide and finish the lead playing bottleneck. The funny thing is that there's about a five or six beat pause in between them because the slide got kinda stuck in my vest pocket and it took a while to get the darn thing on my finger!" Given his broad listening tastes and keen melodic intuition, it shouldn't be surprising that Haynes also has a wealth of good advice to impart to younger players. As proof, just sample this tidbit of universal guitar wisdom, one which cuts to the heart of the matter just as fast as one of his always inventive solos: "Awhile back, I used to play country music for a living with David Allan Coe and, while I don't think I'd be happy playing country every day, I learned a lot from the experience because whenever you step outside your genre, you're bound to expand your horizons. When I used to read interviews with some of the truly great players, there was always one influence they'd mention that was a complete surprise, like B.B. King saying he dug jazzers like Django Reinhardt and Charlie Christian, which in turn gave him his own special voice as a blues player. In my mind, whether you're into blues or heavy metal, listening to and also playing other styles of music can only make you a better guitar player."

CD TABLATURE

About the Arrangements

The Pink Panther
"The Pink Panther" starts in E minor, which, in theory, should make it an easy fit on guitar. However, the characteristic chromatic walkup from C# to E would put the arrangement an octave too high in standard tuning. CGDGAD allows me to not only capture that signature run, but it also provides the open C and the open G bass notes, which are essential for the harmonic structure of the composition. I have attempted to remain true to the elements of the original arrangement, maintaining the essence of the bass part and of Plas Johnson's improvised tenor sax solo. My guide for this work is an image of a group of LA's finest studio musicians performing in tight ensemble under Mr. Mancini's baton; this must have been one breathtaking session! -Laurence Juber

Moon River
Although "Moon River" is in 3/4, I don't emphasize the waltz feel in my arrangement. In myopinion, de.-emphasizing the waltz feel contributes to the dreamlike quality of the tune. Let the melody notes ring out as long as possible (a little bit of subtle vibrato will help the melody stand out). This arrangement should be very easy to play, so savor every note. Good luck. -Ed Gerhard

The Days of Wine and Roses
I enjoyed putting together this solo guitar arrangement of "The Days of Wine and Roses:' It includes the same modulation that is popular among jazz pianists. The great Bill Evans does this same modulation in his rendition. I hope you enjoy the bossa nova rhythmic feel in the introduction. I think it sets the mood for the tune. Thank you, Mr. Mancini, for all the memorable melodies. -David Cullen

PeterGunn
Arranging the "Peter Gunn" theme came down to a matter of synchronizing the famous bass line and melody by way of dozens of one-beat finger mechanisms that occur frequently. Until the very end, the only chord in the "Peter Gunn" theme is E7. The challenge was to take it through a few times in different ways. In the A section, I play one time through with a single-note melody and then one time through with a harmonized melody, all against the recurring bass line. Letter B is a bridge of sorts. The C section is the harmonized melody again. The D section is another bridge I composed myself using a combination of diminished and major chord triad shapes. In the E section, there is a technique that simultaneously uses tremolo and bass line in the right hand: the right-hand fingers move up and down rapidly against the first three strings while the right-hand thumb pounds out that familiar bass melody. This arrangement has been extremely exciting and challenging. Don't call me at home with questions! I can't help you. I'll be in therapy. -Pat Donohue

Two for the Road
Technically, this is a pretty simple and straightforward piece to play. Care and attention should be devoted to the right-hand fretting-sustain each melody and chord voicing for as long as possible to allow for smooth transitions throughout. Also, dynamics will really help to bring out the emotional aspect, so experiment with softer and louder right-hand picking-bearing in mind that the melody needs to be up front at all times, and in certain instances I have even chosen to drag the time for effect. The bass counterpart is critical in its role as harmony, so ensure that you pay as much attention to keeping it nice and smooth against the melody. The run that occurs at bar 47 is played with just downstrokes (with the right-hand thumb), slightly speeding up toward the end and then returning to the slower tempo. All harmonics are natural, played at the 12th fret. -Amrit Sond

About Pink Guitar. As owner of Solid Air Records, I would love to take credit for this collection of arrangements, but like most owners, I am luckier than I am smart. Aaron Stang, our partner in print publishing at Warner Bros. Publications, came up with the concept; I can take credit only for agreeing that it could be fun. Of course, asking a dozen artists to find time to pick out a favorite Mancini tune, work up a creative arrangement, record it, transcribe it, and then record a lesson-all in just a few weeks' time-is asking a lot! Fortunately for me, the artists on our label are all up for such challenges and delivered the goods-as they say in the entertainment biz. At this 10th anniversary of the passing of the legendary composer Henry Mancini and the 40th anniversary of the Pink Panther, there are many products in stores honoring his memory: everything from repackages of older recordings to new and exciting versions of his tunes from jazz ensembles to pop stars. Our collection marks the first time a group of guitarists has tackled his compositions; it's a tribute to the strength of his melodies that even played as solos they retain all of their power, beauty, and playfulness. I won't go into detail about each tune since the artists themselves have done a better job than I could, but I would like to say that 2004 marks our own lOth anniversary. We could think of no better way to start this collection than with Laurence Juber, the artist with whom we launched our label. It was obvious to us that the challenging job of turning "The Pink Panther" theme into a solo guitar arrangement had to go to this Grammy-winning musician-and the results speak for themselves. Finally, my sincere thanks to you for purchasing this collection of arrangements. I hope you'll check out the other CDs, books, and DVDs by these wonderful musicians. They're all extremely talented composers in their own rights. Until we meet again and the case is solved. -James Jensen
