In this podcast, Chris Dixon explains his journey to creating more than just a one on one teaching practice. Chris in action with a group of local guitar players Ever felt that one to one tuition, whilst the best way to teach guitar, or indeed any instrument is a bit...well, sort of isolated? Would it not be great to actually take this and make it into something that feels and is a bit bigger with regards the other teachers and artistic people in your community? Chris Dixon from East Lothian in Scotland has done just that. Chris has taken his one to one guitar teaching practice and developed it into a community group and by reaching out to other players and those involved with the arts has created something that is much more connected. Chris also talks about his jet setting early years, how he got into guitar in the first place and how he views guitar tuition and the relevance of community action in music!

The three packages available from Neck Diagrams We've all done it. Grabbed and scribbled down a bunch of lines and created our own chord boxes to then remember the latest and best chord, scale or arpeggio. Perhaps it was a bunch of chords for a song. You would think that there would be a plethora of quality software out there that could help you create beautiful images that you could easily share...but you'd be wrong. Justin Dolezy created the company Neck Diagrams over ten years ago and in that time, his software is the "go too" piece of digital kit that guitarists use to create stunning fret board images. Hot on the heels of our review of the latest incarnation of the software ND2, Ged Brockie discusses all things music, guitar and delves (lightly) into the world of programming.

This interview was meant to be broad ranging, however, Tom's eight string guitar (yes you read that correctly) took up almost the entire show! One thing that non-musicians should understand is that the world is full of great musicians, however, very few can actually claim to make a living from predominantly playing music. This podcast interview is with one such musician Tom Lippincott. Tom is an incredibly accomplished musician who also teaches guitar. Just take a look at one of his many Youtube video lessons (link below) and you'll immediately be struck by his knowledge and ability to clearly communicate his message. As the headline notes, this interview didn't get much past Tom's eight string guitar but we are hopeful that we can talk with Tom again in the near future as there is a lot more to discuss!

FretDeck Could Be The Answer   Let's face it, learning the guitar can be hard and that is where FretDeck comes in. It is a very simple concept, but like most of the best ideas; they are simple. In this podcast we talk to Justin Comstock about how came up with the idea of FretDeck. Further to this, we discuss his career as a player and how he managed to get through the maze of Kickstarter to see his dream idea become a reality. Podcast Ep 14 – Table Of Contents 1.20 Introductions. 2.30 What was the inspiration for FretDeck? 4.05 Designing FretDeck. 6.25 Getting into the detail. 9.05 The design stage. 10.12 The biggest challenges faced. 11.39 Moving the idea onto Kickstarter. 15.55 Ideas for the next FretDeck? 17.03 How much does FretDeck cost? 18.23 Justin's playing career and development. 20.10 Plans for the future. 22.40 The benefits of using Kickstarter! PLEASE SUPPORT GMI THROUGH OUR PATREON PAGE More About FretDeck The FretDeck promo video kind of says it all, but we think the moving cards are pretty groovy. It probably took an absolute age to create this animation with the stop motion technique. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0AEG_WjCQ6s Starting Out With FretDeck Justin gives an overview of how to use and get the most from his invention. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=91Ur65jFF-s A Little About Jason Here is a little about Jason from his own website and in his own words. Hi! My name is Justin Comstock. I am the owner of Comstock Guitar Studio and the creator of the FretDeck. I have been playing the guitar since I was 11 years old. I started teaching the guitar during high school and have over 14 years of experience in teaching guitar. During high school I took music theory AP and continued learning more after graduating. Music has always been my passion and I enjoy helping others learn. I enjoy hearing my students write their own music and seeing what they can accomplish on the guitar. I would like to tell you why I created this fantastic product for guitar players. One evening while I was watching TV, I tuned into a Stevie Ray Vaughn concert that I have seen many times prior. As I watched this amazing guitarist play across the fretboard, I realized that he was playing pentatonic scales on the entire guitar. I thought if only other guitar players could understand the fretboard like Stevie Ray Vaughn. My goal is to help guitar players master the entire fret board in every single key so they feel more comfortable playing the guitar. So, I created the FretDeck! You can find out more about FretDeck and purchasing it by clicking FretDeck. On Justins blog he has a series of great articles for guitarists. The FretDeck pitch on the Kickstarter website.

The Most Amazing New Amplification Product In Years! Chris Prendergast is the inventor of a new portable guitar amplifier that attaches onto the vast majority of electric guitars. Working with your smartphone it's a guitarists dream. Funded via an Indiegogo campaign, it's funding from guitarists around the world has been simply overwhelming. In this podcast GMI talks to Chris about the idea of JamStack, it's development and his hopes for the future.     Podcast Ep 8 – Table Of Contents 0.50 The inspiration for JamStack. 3.28 Evolution of the initial idea and Indiegogo. 5.30 Integrating with mobile phones and battery life. 7.45 Creating the connection between apps, mobile and amp. 9.34 Strap button included! 10.12 The biggest challenges faced. 11.00 Success with Indiegogo and unit pricing. 13.30 Getting onto Canada's "Dragons Den". 16.21 Speaker technology and it's use in JamStack. 17.45 It ain't heavy. 18.32 Fitting the JamStack to your guitar. 20.31 Plans for the future. 21.32 Release date coming soon! 23.36 For use in education establishments 26.40 Patents pending... 27.42 The long term goals and vision More About JamStack JamStack Explained The JamStack is the world's first attachable guitar amplifier and the first to integrate seamlessly with a smart phone for incredible effects, shockingly good tone, and total portability. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4xJZAC7F6PM Electric guitars can be a pain to set up. All the required equipment like cables, pedals, power outlets and amplifiers take up space and limit where and when you can play. The JamStack solves that problem, letting guitarists and bassists play wherever, whenever they choose. Easy Set-up: JamStack’s lightweight, portable amplifier connects to the base of an electric guitar (or electric bass) in seconds. Weighing under 2lbs. (900 grams), the amp fits on the strap button at the bottom of most guitars using a spring load system and soft mount to protect from scratches. Adjust the smartphone mount and connect two short cords to the phone and guitar’s output and you are ready to jam! How Long Does A Charge Last For? The JamStack runs 8-hours on a single charge and works with iOS, Windows, Android, and iPhone Touch. Its 10-watt speaker is designed to sound great at high AND low volume. It’s not distorted like a mini-amp, so guitarists can sound as good practicing in the middle of the night at low volume as they would jamming alongside other instruments on the street. Since it is so small and light, the JamStack fits in a guitar case making it perfect for road trips, parties and jamming in the park. Using Effects Layer Effects: Pair the JamStack with apps like AmpliTube and AmpKit to add layered effects like drum beats without wasting time on levels. Back tracks won’t drop out like regular amps! And since the phone is right on the guitar body, guitarists can set up loops on the fly, perform sequined samples, or record and share music effortlessly. JamStack helps recreate virtually any guitar sound without the need for a lot of computer equipment. It’s great for new guitar players too! Adjust the phone to can hear the lesson and follow along on the screen. It even works as a great tuner! Plus, JamStack can be paired with Bluetooth to double as an ultra- premium Bluetooth speaker for sharing tunes wirelessly. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z_okdy9wVn8 When Will JamStack Be Ready What’s Next: JamStack will take pre-orders on a new Indiegogo campaign starting May 2nd and will appear on Canadian TV’s Dragons’ Den in Fall 2017. A winter 2016 Kickstarter campaign raised more than 325% of its goal to fund the tooling and first manufacturing run in Summer 2017.

It does not list my ongoing home tuition and gigs I perform at in my hometown and further afield. I have included it so you can see the diversity needed to earn a living as a musician.

Episode 1 – Guitar Sight Reading – How & Why https://www.guitarandmusicinstitute.com/ep-1-guitar-sight-reading-how-why/ Tue, 14 Feb 2017 17:02:22 +0000 http://www.guitarandmusicinstitute.com/?p=11877 Learning Guitar Sight Reading On Guitar Learning to read traditional music notation on the guitar is usually not the first thing that guitarists consider unless they come from a classical guitar background. Due to the fact that guitar players get scales, chords, arpeggios and ultimately songs together quickly, by the time that they get round to thinking about getting their reading together it's often too late; or so they think. Getting used to TAB (tablature) means they don't see the point in learning to read.
