A Farewell to Aerosmith…

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.

Jam On!

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”.

White Boys and Metal Music…

The Heavy Metal minority includes women and blacks. Interestingly enough, some music does have a fair amount of race and gender exclusions… some that you’d never think would be the case…

Heavy Metal Girls

(by Mike Bell, Postmedia News)

 

What shouldn’t happen and what is entirely inexcusable, though, is when the self-proclaimed gatekeepers of a certain musical style let more important things such as race and gender enter into their “membership requirements,” and do all that they can to make sure those who don’t fit the bill know they’re interlopers…

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 »

  • We’re Back!… Vinyl Records June 17, 2018
    Not to long ago I talked about the rise and fall of Tower Records and how the vinyl record industry had their days and then essentially died… well get ready because they’re back! Many of you vinyl aficionados already knew this was happening. The fact that pressed records remain dynamically pure and essentially a great […]
  • Recording Music In Your Living Room… June 12, 2018
    Having a studio in your own pad is great feeling. Being able to stroll over a couple of rooms and find yourself immersed in the comfortable surroundings of musical gear is a treat indeed. In an article from Billboard, Country singer, Tenille Townes, did a fair amount of her latest album using her living room […]
  • Gibson guitar company facing bankruptcy February 19, 2018
    If you’re like me you appreciate a good Gibson guitar. My favorite was a 1957 Les Paul Jr. single cut-away with a single P-90 pick up… it was a simple screamer! Now it appears that Gibson is in some sort of financial trouble and could be on the verge of bankruptcy after over 115 years […]
  • Paul McCartney Playing Live… December 26, 2017
    “Some of that natural reverb gets initiated by the stage sound itself, as things get pretty loud up there. Only Wickens wears in-ear monitors, as the rest of the band opts for Clair R4 sidefills and old-school Showco SRM wedges.” That’s a quote from the interesting article that talks about the equipment used on Paul […]
  • Guitar Legend John McLaughlin Retires December 15, 2017
    Jazz-rock legacy of the Mahavishnu Orchestra, John McLaughlin (age 75 at the time of this blog post) is retiring from touring. Many of us musicians have known John as an esoteric monster on the strings. His departure from mainstream songs to introspective nuance has been instrumental (no pun intended) in providing for insightful creative considerations […]
