Stickology: A Guide TO Playing The Chapman Stick by Steve Adelson
3 of 3 people found the following review helpful
If you are reading this it's safe to assume that you own a Stick or are considering buying one. I found the book complicated and containing only one song which was written in standard notation and not even tabbed! The DVD is one of thes instructional affairs that is full of mistakes and burps etc.The weirdest thing about it is that Steve plays some fast licks that he repeatedly fluffs for whatever reason and all thes mistakes have been left in.It actually made me consider selling my own Stick that I have owned since 1993 and have enjoyed playing ever since.

This is a fairly stunning recording. The instrumentation and statistical density of the textures jump out from the speakers and grab your attention.All the song titles are references to Orwells prophetic dystopian novel 1984 and evoke an emotional response that is unprecedented as far as this listener is concerned!

The great eight-string guitarist, Charlie Hunter, plays a six-string on here so it's worth the purchase price for that reason alone.

This is basically an unofficial compilation of Zappa on "Saturday Night Live" in the mid to late 1970`s. The quality is hazy but the sound is remarkably crisp and for what was a mono tv recording well defined.It`s worth it for John Belushi as a Samaurai Jazz musician who is accompanied by the Zappa band under the direction of Frank.If you're new to this kinda thing stick with the official Zappa Family Trust releases such as "Baby Snakes" or "The Dub Room Special"
