neville.marten@futurenet.com AFTER LAST MONTH’S take-over by Paul Gilbert we’re back to normal. But what an amazing lesson that was and Paul, who’s rather bluesier these days, played some amazing lines that went outside blues’s usual Pentatonics. A lot of it was arpeggio based, which always makes a solo sound articulate and musical. So this month we thought we’d take that concept and run with it. At some point in our development we’ve all listened to other players and thought they must have some secret scale to which the rest of us aren’t privy. But that’s not the case. As with anything in music, it can be learnt (feel, touch and tone are still down to you). With this in mind Andy Saphir, who’s always a trusted pair of hands with this type of…

food for thought

I’m working on a series of lessons on my site that explains how to ‘make the changes’ in a blues. One of my students challenged me to explain that journey for GT because it’s something that baffles many people. But it’s a really wonderful adventure that can kick in new life to your blues playing. What I’ll present here is a pathway you might like to try out – it’s by no means the only one, but it works and is fun. Some of the things I mention might not make much sense unless you’re ready to upgrade – but my site has lessons that will take you right the way through, so you’ll understand in detail what you’ll encounter and practise for each stage. Stage 1 – Minor Pentatonic & Blues…

session shenanigans

How Things Began - if I may plagiarise the radio fossil fest that was popular when first I plonked plectrum to plucked Picato. Contrary to assertions that the world was once an endlessly wondrous playground, learning to play the guitar with the instruments available to a 10-year-old foot-tapper was both tortuous and terrifying. And on one occasion, tantamount to terminal. Having heard the life changing strains of Duane Eddy’s Peter Gunn Theme, The Ventures’ Walk, Don’t Run and The Shadows’ FBI seemingly beamed to Planet Earth via a hotel juke box, it came as a crushing blow to discover that my first £12 dance band, f-hole axe was puzzlingly incapable of reproducing the stylings to which I had been attracted. And most others, to be honest. Not that I am ungrateful,…

intro instrumental inquisition!

GT: What is it about instrumentals that appeals to you? GH: I love instrumentals going back to Jeff Beck, Dick Dale, Green Onions, Frankenstein. I like that the focus is on the melody and not the words, and they are so fun to play. GT: What can an instrumental provide that a vocal song can’t? GH: I feel like having no words can take the listener to wherever their imagination can go. I’ve had college students tell me they got a good grade when they listened to my all instrumental albums while they studied; they say words can distract them but no words gives them a lift and motives without distracting. GT: Any tendencies you aim to embrace or avoid? GH: The great thing is you can go all over the place with different approaches.…
