Guitar Noise Newsletter for February 29, 2004 with all the latest site news and updates. Written by David Hodge.
Let’s take some of the things we’ve discussed in past columns and see them put to good use. If you’d like, you can even learn how to play Lindsay Buckingham’s solo from the original recording of Landslide. But you’ve got to promise to learn something.
Rock City is not the biggest venue there is, but a few hours ago a sell out crowd of 2,000 – 2,500 jammed in there to see one band and one band alone – A Perfect Circle.
The vast song catalog of Neil Young once again graces the pages of Guitar Noise. Here’s a fun and easy song from his Harvest album that you can learn in practically no time at all and still spend ages on practicing in order to get the kinds of sounds you want. Songs like this never get old.
Here’s something especially for those of you who think that having small children gives you an excuse not to practice – you can play this arrangement of Brahms’ Lullaby at least several times each day! And we’ve turned it into a fairly decent lesson so that those of us without children can learn a few things as well.
Hans Fahling returns with the first in a series of three articles, each designed to help you get better at playing faster by means of starting slowly. This is a great read (and terrific exercises!) for all guitarists, whatever style you play and whatever speed you aspire to!
The classic Elton John song gets the Guitar Noise treatment. We’ve a terrific finger style arrangement for you, good enough to make you think you’re playing a piano! And, of course, I make sure to throw in enough interesting theory bits to remind you that it is, indeed, after all, a lesson!
