Revisting Shredding Fusion Genious, Hugh Ferguson…

Although it was the early part of 2012 when fusion guitar extraordinaire, Hugh Ferguson passed-away… it just seemed like a good time to revisit his wonderful writings and sounds. The first article I found was from a Truth in Shredding blog, which spends some time devoted to Hugh’s past. The other site I found fascinating was the actual (still exists as of today) Hugh Ferguson .net website. The section I really found intriguing was his ‘ask’ section of the blog. The questions were the type that real players would ask, eg., gear, recording, sounds, scales, etc (you know, deeper stuff)…

Saving Bob Dylan’s Dinkytown Guitar Store…

So… they want to tear-down (for Condos) the distinguished district, inclusive of the original music store where Bob Dylan purchased his earliest guitar for recording, Blood on the Tracks. The music store, the Podium, has been saved and will move down the street and kept for nostalgia.

Dinkytown

The place still holds a special spot in Dylan’s heart. The native of Hibbing, Minn., spent a good portion of his past at the shop while studying at the University of Minnesota before he moved to New York and became an American icon…

Guitar Power Chords

Guitar Power Chords” relating to the Music Dials…

Hi –

Rhythm and chords have always been the popular foundation for all types of music. Power chords are essentially, just 2 (many times 3) of the strongest tonal notes in the key of the song, which creates powerful sounding chords all to themselves.

In this case, by playing these notes as viewed on the Music “Power Chord” Dial, you will immediately find yourself laying down some substantial rock and blues sounds, indeed. Generally, they are played on the lower registered (bass) strings, where they have the most ‘punch’ to them. Read the rest of this entry »

  • Open mic gigs and being to loud… December 6, 2017
    Just finished talking with a tavern owner and supporter of live and live open mics… as a matter of fact if it wasn’t for this venue owner, musicians of this particular local town would need to drive another hour to reach another open mic scene. Bottom line and a wake up call for us musicians […]
  • Notes on a Piano (keyboard)… November 6, 2017
    Now, we all know that the basic 1, 4, 5 note structures (with maybe an additional transition note/chord) can create a complete song… However, when you toss in randomness of notes it might take a little more time to complete the composition. This video shows a keyboard prodigy that just might blow your mind! You’ll […]

    This article is a great example of how being a musician is a wonderful reason for getting up in the morning.

  • Kindergartners Learn Blues From Conan O’Brien… June 21, 2017
    Have to admit (subjectively) that this gathering of young minds with Conan O’Brien is progressively fun. An interesting way to introduce kids to music, in this instance… the Blues. In any case, it’s worth a quick watch to get your subjective opinion. Jam On! – Ron (credit via: society of rock .com) “I Can’t Stop […]
