Recently (as of the date of this blog post) guitarist Joe Perry mentioned that the band, Aerosmith, had been tossing around the idea of reaching a time where a farewell tour was in order.
Wow, can you believe it’s been 47 years at this point? Another rock band legend has reached the proverbial milestone. Like many (considered) old-timer rockers, The Aerosmith boys have apparently found this moment in their career to consider ‘wrapping it up’ for their touring and studio album work.
It also appears that Steven Tyler has started another music genre direction… a solo country singer. Yep believe it or not (or you may already know it by now). Here’s a link to his first (solo) venture into country… (it’s not bad). Maybe it’s also a way for him to save his voice for the fore-see-able future.
Go Here to see Steven sing country…
And more on the Aerosmith Farewell Tour…
(via: press release of Aerosmith Farewell Tour from Society of Rock .com)
There are no dates currently in mind for when Aerosmith will hit the road for the final time, and if you’re worried about being able to snag tickets to what’s sure to be one of the greatest farewell tours rock and roll has ever seen, never fear: Steven assures us that while this is the end for Aerosmith, the farewell tour will “probably last forever”.
As noted in Wiki… Glenn Lewis Frey (/fraɪ/; November 6, 1948 – January 18, 2016) was an American singer, songwriter, producer and actor, best known as a founding member of rock band the Eagles.

Blues Guitar playing and singer, B.B. King died Thursday, May 11th 2015 at his home in Las Vegas. He was 89 years old. Many of us guitar players relied on some of his licks to complete our solos and back-up rhythm fills. King played a Gibson guitar he affectionately called Lucille with a style that included beautifully crafted single-string runs punctuated by loud chords, subtle vibratos and bent notes. Here’s a feed from FOX news with further information…

International Guitar Month (IGM) has been an annual
celebration of guitars and guitar products that happens
every April. Started in 1987, IGM was originally sponsored
by Guitar & Accessories Marketing Association (GAMA)
and National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM).
In 1996 GAMA decided to focus most of its resources on Teaching Guitar Workshops… subsequently, International
Guitar Month was rolled into their effort of introducing
more music instruction.
It seems cool enough to take additional notice @ least
once a year, to celebrate the Guitar as a major participant in our music history.

“Guitar Power Chords” relating to the Music Dials…
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 »
