I will be playing live acoutic music every Wednesday in October at AJ Gators Centerville form 6-9pm, come out and have some of the best wings around and hear me play some tunes.
Here is a mini video guitar lesson I made on hybrid style picking on guitar used by many players over the years but in this case, the legendary Texas blues guitarist Stevie Ray Vaughan . This style employed the use of pick and fingers together and playing multiple strings at the same time or alternately. ..the example I’m playing here is what I call the “quintessential lick” that Stevie used countless times live or in studio recordings..enjoy.
Per my good friend and wedding photographer David Schwartz , I have put together some demos for the wedding business. Dave is probably the most gifted and passionate photographer I’ve ever met in my life and lover of music as well. These demos are intended as a representation of some of my work, but deffinatly not all. I hate to limit myself musically to anything and be open to everything. The bottom line is when it comes to weddings , I will learn any song for any potential client and preform it as close as i can to the orginal unless designated otherwise, The client needs always come first.
I always love having a chance to place private functions for any occasion and last week was no exception. Here is a shot form the Norfolk Yacht and Country Club that was taken by local photographer, Sean Holder, The NYCC is full of local History , my father actually use to play tennis there back in the 1950s, its pretty cool being part of the history as well. Thank you to my dear friend Amy Franklin Harrington for putting it all together.
Once again, this song literally changed my life. The first time I heard it on the radio I about drove off the road and cried. It was like a huge wake up call to SRVs legacy , passion and love for music, the blues and beyond. This one song , epitomized him , day after day, night after night, giving 110% to the song and played with feeling. Twenty five years after his death his sprit still lives, this one for all the fans. Long live Stevie.
Wednesday I’ll be at the Aloft in Chesapeake from 6-8, then I’m off to Hometown heroes from 9-12. Thursday I’m back for an evening of Jazz at the Aberdeen barn on North Hampton blvd. Saturday night I will be at AJ Gators at Redmill, the new location off Nimo parkway and Sunday back at the Aberdeen from 6-9.
He is a cover of one of my favorite Stevie Ray Vaughan tunes. I do not own the writes to this song, its for demo only. This tune is one of many of the Stevie Ray Vaughan Tribute set list the band plays, even though he’s been gone for 20+ years, his sprit still lives on.
The probablem with being an obsessed artist is youre never happy, I know I will rerecord this song again but in the mean time here is the remix..enjoy
