Posted by nayontenor at PM 20 comments:. Labels: help. Frank Gambale born December 22, is an Australian jazz fusion guitarist. He is renowned for his use of the sweep picking and economy picking techniques. After graduation, he played the jazz club circuit with his own band and published Speed Picking, his first of many instructional videos.
Inhe released his first studio album entitled Brave New Guitar, having signed a three-album contract with Legato Records which was owned by Mark Varney, brother of Shrapnel Records founder Mike Varney. In that same year, he toured with Jean-Luc Ponty, and shortly afterwards began a six-year stint with the Chick Corea Elektric Band in During his time with the latter, he participated in five albums and shared a Grammy award with two Grammy nominations. Throughout the s, he would release altogether three studio albums.
An endorsement deal with Ibanez guitars came about inwhich resulted in the bright yellow-coloured Frank Gambale model guitar now FGM seriesmodeled after the Saber Series line; this went on sale in Yamaha also manufactured a Frank Gambale model guitar after he left Ibanez in the s. Gambale also served as head of the guitar department of the Los Angeles Music Academy during this time. The s saw four studio albums released, and in the s Gambale started his own record label—Wombat Records—having purchased his entire Legato discography with the intention of reissuing it himself.
Sometimes going back to work is more of a holiday than the actual holiday. The room we stayed in at the Grand Mercure had two levels. For the short time that we actually stayed in the room, all we did was walk the 2 year old up and down the freaking stairs. Then towards the end of the stay, he started screaming the room down to go solo on the stairs. Fun and games. In order to pass time between albums, the band asked fans to vote and recommend songs that they would like to see the guys cover.
The final agreed list was finalised and in AprilSmith and Myers went in and recorded the final ten songs acoustically. We are finally seeing the songs starting to filter through on YouTube. What a 9 month build up to the release? For the original artist Album) whoever owns the rights at this point in timethis means no income. So the original 10 song release is down to six for the time being. Thinking that it was a mistake and that the song would get taken down, I suddenly made sure I found some time on Album) holiday to check it out.
In addition, I was really anti-grunge because all of the rock bands that I was into started to disappear. So I was staying loyal to my team. The hard rock team. So I asked a previous hard rock friend of mine who switched to the grunge side to copy the album onto a cassette for me. Oh, the shame of admitting defeat. My mate made sure that he dug in the hooks, while twisting the knife. On my way home, I pressed play on the Sony Walkman and there it was, hidden away at track 5.
It is original and fresh. And when it finished for the second time, I rewinded the tape again and heard it again. I did that non stop for about two weeks, until the tape got tangled up or chewed up — the people that had tapes would totally understand what I mean by this and then I was off to the record shop to purchase the CD.
It takes a lot of guts taking on a song that was a hit, however it was never released as an official single. The fans made this song go viral back in the early nineties, by spamming radio stations to play it and since the Billboard charts have some funny connection with radio plays, the song hit number 3 on the Billboard Rock Charts, beating out songs that had actual single sales on the board.
So Smith and Myers have shown a lot of guts taking on a song that has over 50 million YouTube views from all the various channels that host it. One channel from Nothingman54 has the song at 33, views. Aaron Lewis from Staind has also taken the song on. He slowed it down a little bit and his version would have been a definite keeper if the ad lib Eddie Vedder outro was nailed.
Again it was a good version, but the pure raw emotion that the original version invokes is not achieved. For Brent Smith to cover the song and to do it justice he needed to have lived the song before covering it. I always say that some songs cannot be covered. While the Smith and Myers version is good, it leaves me feeling a bit empty.
Maybe I expected a lot more. Maybe they should have included a piano into their acoustic version, as the piano is an integral part of the song. I really really like Shinedown, so to be critical of Brent Smith who to me is Shinedown is painful. I actually went back to hear the original Pearl Jam version after this. And that is the power of music. Nobody exists in a vacuum. Inspiration comes from what you read, watch and experience.
Inspiration is the merging of these experiences and influences into something new. They were influenced by Punk. Album) were inspired and influenced by Classic Rock. They were excited and this made them nervous. Nerves made them play faster. When Black Sabbath came on the scene they were originally influenced by the Blues.
Just another blues band among the many blues bands doing the rounds at that time. Then they applied their gloomy industrial upbringing and the rest is history. Our whole life is information. Be ready to reference it. Trust your first initial feeling. No one wants to hear new music from their favourite artist every two years.
We surf the net each day, looking for new music and information. If there is a demand for your music, you should create and distribute constantly. The days when we used to have very little music are over. The days of saving up to buy an album and the playing the same album over and over again are also gone. YouTube has everything that you want, Spotify has almost everything that you could want and if all of that fails cyber lockers and The Pirate Bay fill the void. The old rock star is dead.
Its time to create a new rock star that is a product of the times. Keep innovating. Embrace the new reality that is being born. Stop playing by the rules of the Classic Rock artists. Look at the band Heartist. When they formed, they decided that they would not play by the old rules of playing as many gigs as possible just to get noticed. They decided to write songs.
They decided to keep on writing. They started posting demos on YouTube. They started building a buzz. The songs had quality. People started to spread them, share them, talk about them. They played ONE gig and got signed by Roadrunner and management. Music is for the fans. Music is for the people.
Music is not for a record executive to make billions so that they can compete with the Forbes Rich List. If you want to be in the music business, you need to focus on what music means. Be inspired! You have to practice, be original and wait for your moment, when you have to deliver.
A sleeper hit that no one saw coming. If you want success, practice and be ready to turn that inspiration into a product. Success is always ten steps behind. It takes a while for it to happen. Success is about laying a solid foundation and building on it. Your music has to be accessible. It needs Empty Spaces - Fuel (3) - Something Like Human (Cassette make an instant impact. Fans do not have the time to spend on letting an album sink into our brain like the old ways.
The life span of a song is different these days. Most of the time you get one shot for each new fan. It is that one time when people will hear what you have created.
One time where you need to satisfy them, so that they can respond and share. Today, you need to have that one unbelievable cut, that makes the people need to hear it over and over again. That one cut that makes the people want to go and find out more about you. It works in every genre of music. Artists can go straight to their audience, there are no restrictions. Artists by now should know that their career depends on building a loyal relationship with as many fans as possible.
You need to find a way to be heard over all the noise. You want to be remembered. You want to be talked about. How can you achieve that? Society is a visual culture. That is why we watch TV shows, movies, take pictures and film ourselves.
Why do you think, when you see a preview for a new movie coming out, the studio marketeers have music with it? Why do you think TV shows and movies have soundtracks? They are re-enforcing the visuals with music, as people take more notice when that happens. If people notice they will talk about. How many times have you walked out of a movie, thinking, what a tough score.
Man Of Steel had an unbelievable score by Hans Zimmerthat captured the emotion in each scene. It was also inspiring and uplifting.
No artist can please everyone. All artists stand for something. If you write a song that is anti- insert topic hereyou will alienate some, and connect more with others. When people get fired up via positive or negative feelings they pay attention. If you look at all of your heroes, they are there for a reason. They are different. When they came on the scene, they were different. Twisted Sister was different to all the other bands in the Eighties in how they dressed and looked.
Metallica was Album) to all the metal and rock bands when they came onto the scene. Add it Here. Watch the song video Empty Spaces. Hemorrhage In My Hands. Browse Lyrics.
