Complete Technique for Modern Guitar
Complete Technique for Modern Guitar
by Joseph Alexander
Edition: Paperback
Price: £15.99

5.0 out of 5 stars A gold mine., 4 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an incredibly well thought out educational book. There are no two ways about it, Mr Alexander is clear in his descriptions and presents practically useful and deceptively challenging exercises. I really can't recommend this enough, and so many of the exercises have found their way into my warm up routine - really worthwhile getting this, folks!

5.0 out of 5 stars Unique, outstanding and unbeatable., 24 Aug. 2013
This review is from: Made Up Mind (Audio CD)
It's so rare these days to hear music that you know is going to stay relevant and meaningful for a very long time, but this is an album that will do both these things. The band's sound is utterly unique - they draw influences from soul, blues, rock and funk, without being enough to be classified in any one of those genres. Anyone whose heard them already will know what I mean.
This record is less upbeat than their debut, 'Revelator', and takes a much more laid back feel in my view. It makes for stunning listening, because when the band wants to crank it up, the difference is astonishing. Songs like 'Its So Heavy', 'Sweet and Low' and 'Calling Out to You' are so honest and beautiful - real standout tracks for being calm and truthful. In contrast, 'Made Up Mind' and 'All That I Need' are shining examples of TTB's ability to carry a killer groove through with swing and attitude. Every song on this record is notable for something and there are no fillers, just pure, joyful music.
Despite all of the members being hugely able musicians in their own right, no-one's playing is ever self indulgent; the song always comes first. As a result, the songs are memorable and meaningful, but all contain exceptional and controlled performances from all.
We all know that Derek's slide is legendary and Susan's voice is in a league of its own, and this album doesn't disappoint there either.

So, wonderful songs, stunning musicianship and a sound that is unique to this band, without sounding too similar to their earlier work. I can't recommend this enough and I know this music is going to play a large part in my life for a very long time - something that you really can't say often these days.
Do yourself a favour, you may not know it, but you need this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding, 31 Dec. 2012
This review is from: Everybody's Talkin' (Audio CD)
I never write reviews, but this album really warrants one. Derek made it clear from the outset that this was meant to be a family band, influenced by bands like Sly and the Family Stone, where everyone is musically equal. So because of this, there are lots of solos on this album - bass solos, drum solos, guitar solos from man and wife, trumpet solos - you name it.
In short, this album is amazing. The band rises and falls as a whole and creates energy that is utterly unrivalled in music today. The music is a real force that really moves you and the organic feel of this record shines through from the recording - from the tender 'Darling I'll Be Home Soon' to the jiving cover of 'Uptight'. There's so much to this album and I really can't praise it enough!

5.0 out of 5 stars Sensational., 13 July 2011
Honesty, this is the most sensational music I've ever heard. All the musicians involved are tasteful, yet dangerously good technically. Naturally when they all play together, Jason really captures the Bonham sound, Huges' bass is solid as ever and his vocals are moving in tracks like 'Cold' and mind blowingly energetic in faster rock stuff like 'The Outsider'. Derek is brilliant on the keys, he really defied why the keys have a home in rock music, technically sensational and dripping with feel. Joe Bonamassa had always been an idol of mine and in my eyes, he dominates this record. Unbelievably fast with subtle creatiity and taste, Bonamassa has really proved that he can pull off Hard Rock and he can shred like any metal guitarist out there.

This is an essential for Cream fans, Zeppelin fans, any fans of music will love this. Best album ive ever heard by the best band ive ever heard.
