This book and CD provide your backup band as you explore Country and Urban, Acoustic and Electric, Delta, Texas, Chicago, Slide Guitar, Alternate Tuning, Traditional, and Modern styles in many different major and minor keys and in a variety of tempos.

Repeat a tune or passage as many times as you want at slow or regular speed. We’ll jam all night long! Beginners and intermediate players can practice basic skills. Advanced players can hone their improvisation chops.

INTRODUCTION

Tommy's compositions and aITangements cover many styles and techniques. If you have studied the Mel Bay books for Tommy's CD's Only and Endless Road, you already have a head start in learning his mu ic. The tunes for this project are heard on the CD The Mystery. Also you can study the Mel Bay project, Emmanuel Labor with Tommy's discussions of pieces from the above three CD's. From The Mystery Tommy play and discusses "The Mystery", "Gameshow Rag/Cannonball Rag", "The Diggers' Waltz", "Lewis and Clark", and "Antonella's Birthday". There will be some slight variations between the video performance and the recorded tunes. Although he may not playa tune in performance exactly the same way each lime, these transcription will allow you to learn the recorded version, and will give you insight into his methods. These tunes range in difficulty from intermediate to very difficult. There are a few difficult stretches and also Tommy's technique involves some innovative moves, such as fretting the 5th string with the thumb. But whether or not ou perform these tunes, most of the enjoyment comes from understanding them and playing them for their beaut). Some tunes are played with a thumbpick, and others are played without a pick, resulting in a softer sound. Others are played in a hybrid style, using a flat pick, allowing for strong rhythm and interwoven melody note With this style, the right-hand index finger is no longer available for melody. The melody is produced by the pick and the middle and ring fingers. This technique may be difficult for you if you are based in traditional fingerpicking, but it is well worth the effort to learn it. If you read musical notation, the tablature will still be helpful as it points toward left-hand position on the guitar neck. And if you are relying on tablature, remember that left-hand fingering is found in the notation. Learning the hybrid style requires understanding the information given in the tablature. I have tried to indicate the pick stroke directions that are most important, while trying to avoid repeating the stroke directions to reduce the amount of clutter in the tablature. In the hybrid tyle, the thumb and first finger hold the pick, and in accord with classical notation this is shown by a "p". The middle finger will be "m" and the ring finger will be "a". These letters will be stacked when the middle and/or the ring finger pluck notes at the same time as the pick. At other times the pick (thumb and first finger unit) and ... 

 

TOMMY EMMANUEL C.G.P.

Two-time Grammy nominee Tommy Emmanuel has a professional career that spans over four decades and continues to intersect with some of the finest musicians throughout the world. A household name in his native Australia, Tommy has garnered hundreds of thousands of loyal fans worldwide. Tommy's unique style - he calls it simply "finger style" – is akin to playing guitar the way a pianist plays piano, using all ten fingers. Guitar legend Chet Atkins was one of the first to inspire Emmanuel to pick up the guitar as a child. Decades later Atkins himself became one of Emmanuel's biggest fans. In 1999, Chet honored Tommy Emmanuel with the title of "Certified Guitar Player" for his lifetime contribution to the instrument, a rare honor shared by only three other people in the world (Jerry Reed, Steve Wariner and John Knowles). Atkins eventually recorded with Tommy in 1996 on 'The Day the Finger Pickers Took Over the World", for which Emmanuel received his first Grammy award nomination. This was also Atkins last recording.

After a recent recuperative rest, resulting from an exhausting touring schedule, Tommy is now completely rejuvenated and embarking on a full tour schedule in 2008. A new double live CD and DVD, "Center Stage" filmed in High Definition and recorded at the Sierra Nevada Brewery in Chico, California will be commercially released in Spring '08. The DVD portion will also air on Public Television affiliates all over the United States. Every element of modern technology was used in the production of both the DVD and CD. Tomm's record producer, Kim Person, recorded and mixed the audio tracks, while long-time Sierra Nevada video producer/ director Peter Barlow tied the entire package together in state-of-the-art quality. It makes for a stunning package, both aurally and visually. The double disc Live CD "Center Stage" contains many fan show-stoppers, including Emmanuel's BeatIes Medley, Mombasa, and Initiation - the aboriginal tribute song that has evolved over the years and never sounds the same on any recording - or during any show. Tommy also introduces four never-before recorded tracks, "Ruby's Eyes", "Lenny Bro''', "The Jolly Swagman" and "Papa George" (inspired by George Harrison). Also, included are several arrangements of popular traditional tunes like "House of the Rising", "Nine Pound Hammer", "Amazing Grace" - and for his Japanese fans, "Sukiyaki" This new CD is a great mix of the rare, the new, the traditional and the favorites. Emmanuel's music and life are legendary in Australia. He began playing guitar at age 4, by learning to play by ear without any formal instruction. Emmanuel and his older brother Phil were child prodigies, starting their professional career in the 1960s. By the age of six, Tommy was already working as a professional musician. Shortly after his father's death in 1966, the Emmanuel family was approached by Australian country music star Buddy Williams, who took the family on the road until they were forced by the Australian child welfare department to stop traveling. The Emmanuel children were then sent to a regular school. During these years, Tommy was playing in "The Trailblazers" (with siblings Chris on drums and Virginia on slide guitar) on weekends. He also taught guitar and made numerous television appearances in musical competitions. Emmanuel's first brush with fame came when The Trailblazers won two televised talent contests and produced an EP. He and his siblings worked hard ...

It's all around us, in us, ahead of us and lighting our way. It's God's awesome love for his children. Get it? Got it? Good!

FLUID PENTATONICS Book 2. 84 Melodic Studies for Guitar Tim Quinn CD TABLATURE CHITARRA

FLUID PENTATONICS Book 2. 84 Melodic Studies for Guitar, Tim Quinn. CD TAB.

MBGU Rock Curriculum: Fluid Pentatonics, Book 2
84 Melodic Studies for Guitar
by Tim Quinn

Product Description:
Fluid Pentatonics for Guitar: 84 Melodic Studies for Rock Guitar is a comprehensive manual for developing blistering pentatonic motion that moves freely over the entire fretboard, using position-shifting slides, hammer-ons, and pull-offs for speed and fluidity. Emphasis is on overcoming the restrictive nature of traditional pentatonic "box" scale fingerings by developing pathways that continually shift between and connect the five pentatonic “boxes”. Complete whole-neck control is developed through an extensive series of repeating melodic exercises and etudes. Section One presents 35 sequential whole-neck studies, each of which spans the range of twelve frets, thus unlocking virtually every possible position shift. Section Two develops complete non-shifting control through a series of 15 interesting and useful sequential patterns, applied to each of the five pentatonic "boxes". Section Three presents 10 whole-neck/position-shifting studies that are non-sequential in design, in order to develop unpredictable melodic flow. Then, in Sections Four and Five, two vital extensions/variations of the pentatonic scale are fully explored; the Hexatonic and Dominant Pentatonic scales.

The result is a complete matrix of pentatonic moves and connections that allow the guitarist to float freely across the entire fretboard without being locked into any single particular pentatonic "box". The resulting sound is definitely NOT bluesy (very little string bending), but closer to a modern jazz-rock fusion style; fluid and unpredictable. Great for all guitarists in rock, jazz, fusion, blues, country, and pop styles who want to unlock complete whole-neck freedom and develop a fast, modern pentatonic sound. CD included.

Presented in standard notation and tablature.
85 PAGES.

FLUID SOLOING BOOK 3 CHORD-LEAD SOLOING FOR GUITAR Tim Quinn CD TABLATURE LIBRO CHITARRA SPARTITI

FLUID SOLOING, BOOK 3, CHORD-LEAD SOLOING FOR GUITAR, Tim Quinn. CD TAB.

Product Description:
Chord-Lead Soloing for Guitar is a complete method for developing fluid double-stop chord melody. This style of playing can be heard most notably in the playing of Jimi Hendrix (in songs such as The Wind Cries Mary, Little Wing, and Castles Made of Sand), as well in the music of the guitarists he influenced, including Steve Vai, Eric Johnson, and Stevie Ray Vaughan. Chord-lead style playing bridges the gap between straight lead and strictly rhythm, because it is simultaneously chordal (implying a specific major or minor chord) and melodic (carrying a distinct singable melody). This book shows the guitarist how to develop this technique and create continuous connections of moving voicings, merging lead and rhythm into one flowing melodic chordal texture. This is accomplished through a comprehensive collection of chord-lead phrases, each of which is presented in at least three different fingerings (important for whole-neck flow). These phrases are then assembled into soloing etudes that demonstrate practical application over different chord progressions

Chord-lead playing can be adapted to every style of music, including rock, jazz, blues, alternative, funk, R&B, country, and pop. Mastering chord-lead soloing also greatly increases a guitarist’s ability to "stand alone"; that is, to play by himself unaccompanied by other musicians, mixing and switching between chording and lead improvisation. This book is perhaps the most definitive guide ever written for mastering this highly sought after (yet elusive) style of playing. CD included. Standard notation and tablature.

BUSTER B. JONES JUST US-14 Complete Notation & Tab Transcriptions CD TABLATURE LIBRO SPARTITI

BUSTER B. JONESJUST US: 14 Complete Notation & Tab Transcriptions. CD TABLATURE

Product Description:
Although his scorching fingerpicking was most impressive at first glance, a closer look at "Just Us" reveals that he is equally adept at what many musicians consider as a more difficult task: playing fewer notes... ones that mean more, and say more with less, as he does on album opener "A Simple Gift", title cut "Just Us", and "One Sad Clown".

"Just Us" is an album consisting largely of his own compositions inspired by his two main guitars "Merle" and "Pearl". Along the way we are treated to a barn-storming version of "Alabama Jubilee" (it must be tunes like this that caused Chet Atkins to say of Jones "He plays like he's double-parked"), "Collage-a-Reed" and "Clawin'" (each inspired by mentor Jerry Reed), while "Let the Sun Shine In" sounds like an instant fingerpicking classic that you could swear you have heard before, but haven't. Including detailed notation on 15 of Buster’s songs from "Just Us", this Book/CD lesson will challenge even the best players. Presented in standard notation and tablature.
