The gig bag book of scales for all guitarists

Compiled and edited by Joe Dineen and Mark Bridges

Can be purchased at Guitar Center

Started working with this book the other day. I was using a combination of playing scales on my guitar and recording audio files in Cubase. Once the scale was recorded, you can then loop what you recorded and play that scale over and over again. An interesting alternative is to play the scale starting the third off of where the recorded note starts. This generates thirds and forces you to become more familiar with the various fingerings. Scales will help build finger strength as well.

Choir Director at Zion Lutheran Church

I was introduced to the congregation today as the new choir director. I was teasing one congregation member that there was now a "empty seat" in the bass section (my chair) that needed to be filled. To my surprise, he said that he would be willing to join us! Yeah! Now we have 5 sopranos, 3 altos, 3 tenors, and now, once again, 3 basses.

"Nature's Way" Album Being Remixed - Released track "Voyage Beyond"

Released way back in Jan 8, 2018,  this was my first attempt into ambient music..... this is a mixture of new age and classical, if that's possible!  With just a few adjustments, here is the remix:   Voyage Beyond

The mixdown on this arrangement took a while.  There are many tracks to this song.  Therefore, I used Steinberg's Cubase Pro 10.5 internal VSTi  called Halion Sonic SE 3 and Spector.  Instruments used in Halion were:

Digi BassElement OrganRomantic Trumpet1984 Synth Stab Spector started as the "Shanghai" preset but was modified several times for effect.
On the Yahmaha MODX 7 Imperial Strings was used for keyboard and EDM kit for the drums.
