PENTATONIC SCALES FOR GUITAR on KINDLE

Just a quick note...

I've just sorted out some formatting issues with my Kindle uploads, so it's good to go for general sale.

There's a lot of information in there, so with the diagrams especially you might want to check it out on the Kindle desk top app, although I was quite surprised at how crisp it all is even on a kindle screen.

 So, help support the blog, and keep all the free resourced coming by buying my new Kindle book,
"PENTATONIC SCALES FOR GUITAR: A brief introduction" 57 or so pages that will help you play in any key anywhere on the neck.






   


I'll still be putting everything on the blog for free, but I'm hoping to use KINDLE as a sort of Honesty Box.

Rob Recommends #1 ERNESTO SCHNACK

This is blog post 200!

Traffic on the blog has finally started to build to a respectable level now, so I've decided that since it might actually send some traffic their way, I'm going to do the odd post recommending resources or players that have really impressed me.

Don't worry though, the blog isn't about to turn into an endless list of links.

My own resources will be the overwhelming majority of content, but there are a few guys out there whose resources and lessons I have personally been using lately that really deserve a mention as a thank you.

So...

Here is Rob Recommends #1


ERNESTO SCHNACK- The "Game of Thrones" theme arranged for guitar with free tablature.

His arrangement is by far the best I have seen for one guitar, and his performance in the video below is superb.



You can download the free tab for his arrangement from his website on the link below:

http://ernestoschnack.com/game-of-thrones-tab/

He has also made three tuition videos to help you get through his version!





But if you like what you've seen here, then please check out his website, facebook page  and youtube channel on the links below:

AEOLIAN MODE/NATURAL MINOR SCALE for EIGHT STRING GUITAR

AEOLIAN MODE/NATURAL MINOR SCALE for EIGHT STRING GUITAR.

A friend of mine just got an eight string guitar.

This has inspired me to map out a few scales for 8 string.

I'm really excited by the ridiculous range the extra two strings give you, maybe enough to start  keeping an eye on ebay for a cheap one!

So here is the AEOLIAN MODE or NATURAL MINOR SCALE mapped out for eight string guitar (TUNING: F#,B,E,A,D,G,B,E.) all over the neck, and as the seven, three note per string patterns that link together to let you play in any key any where on the neck.

So, enough chit chat...

On with the dots!

SOBER DAVE AND THE DRUNKEN RAMBLINGS- Live

My good friend Mr Sober Dave launched his new band, SOBER DAVE AND THE DRUNKEN RAMBLINGS.

I got up to play one tune with them, LA86, a sort of punk blues boogie that Dave wrote for THE SOHO COBRAS.

It was the first time in ages I'd played live except for blues jams and so on, so I was really excited to get to crank it up!

You should find below footage of the tune I played on, (The tune starts about 50 seconds in, but given the band name I thought it was appropriate to leave the banter on there) and there's footage of the whole gig.

Here's LA86 featuring me!


The whole show.
