Hello readers. This month I will not be ranting about recording since I have been on the road. By the way, the new album is done and we are shopping for a licensing deal at the moment. It will be out shortly, I promise! Here is an image of the cover of the album.
In the meantime, I have been busy with the National Guitar Workshop. Just finished a week in Seattle where we had Larry Carlton as a guest, along with the amazing Ruta Sepetys who is Steve Vai's manager. Then two weeks in Los Angeles with Greg Howe and Steve Vai.
I also had a chance to perform with Greg Howe there in which we hosted a massive jam session with all or most of the students. That was tons of fun!
Then a week of work in Vancouver for the Tom Lee Academy with the School of Rock as well as productions in Brainworks.
Now I am in New Milford, Connecticut where the Mojo Room Seminar has just finished. Here is a description of the Mojo Room seminar:
with Dave Martone
This new and exciting ultimate seminar led by Dave Martone will take students on a journey like no other. Class topics include, The 5 Sounds of GOD, developmental arpeggios, the art of improvising with modal colors (Diatonic, Melodic, Harmonic, Dominant Pentatonic) to get to the Mojo Room! Students will learn about the crazy new "Rolling Hybrid" Technique as well as obtaining endorsements, instrumental songwriting/releasing independent cd's and being put through the "Killer Technique Day!" Be Warned!
Our guest this week was Buckethead. Classes went great. Below is a picture of all the MOJO room victims.
Some of the instructors here also grace the page of Guitar Nine. The mighty Terry Syrek.
The multi-talented James Hogan.
The master of everything - Harry Jacobson.
Super Canadian Pat Johnson.
The awesome Tomas Cataldo.
So as you can see great times are being had by all! We have Joe Satriani coming in August and that should be great. Thanks for stopping by.
May the tone be with you.
David Martone is a guitarist from Vancouver, Canada who has released three solo CDs which showcase his musical diversity and brilliant guitarmanship.
