Instruments: Guitar Voice Harmonica

Growing up in Memphis, I began playing the piano at age 6. After moving to bass guitar a few years later, I finally picked up my brother's acoustic guitar and never looked back. At Vanderbilt University, I studied music and English and began gigging professionally in Nashville while still finishing my degree. I've worked as a singer/songwriter, touring artist and session musician in both Nashville and New York City. I'm proud to call Memphis home again when I'm not on tour. Read More

Instruments: Piano Guitar Voice Bass Guitar Organ Synthesizer Ukulele Keyboard Electric Guitar Acoustic Guitar

I like to teach and talk about the songs and styles that were taught to me by my father when I was just getting in to music and guitar. The first thing I remember learning were "Hey Joe" by Hendrix, which is actually simpler than most people would expect. The basic standards of guitar were taught to me when I was first learning, and that's what excites me to teach to the next generation of guitarists. Read More

Introduction to Hand Drums: Goblet-Shaped Drums

...In our previous installment, we looked at my personal favorite group of hand drums, the frame drums. Now we will discuss the hugely popular family of goblet-shaped drums. This group of hand drums is natively widespread throughout North and West Africa, the Middle East, and Eastern Europe. We will close with Asian examples that are generally less well known in the West.   For the purposes of this article, I am going to include some drums such as the Nigerian (and later Cuban) batá, which have traditionally been described as hourglass-shaped. I think the distinction is subtle, and as we’ll see particularly in the... Read More

How to Read Strumming Patterns for Guitar

...Sadly, mastering strumming patterns is a skill that doesn’t get much respect in the guitar world. When most people think of playing the guitar, they conjure up scenes of someone playing virtuosic solos shrouded by thick layers of fog from atop a huge stage in front of thousands of adoring fans. Even insanely-easy to learn and play power chords get more love than strumming patterns. But as it turns out, strumming patterns are one of the most important guitar skills to have. This goes for rhythm and lead players. Rhythm reading and understanding how to read strumming patterns can be very challenging for ... Read More

Piano Chord Chart: Basic Chords and Intervals

...piano chord chart we’ll use to show you how to build features two easy-to-remember intervals: The Major 3rd and the Perfect 5th. We’ll refer to the note of C (or any note you build a chord from) as the root:     Minor Chords   Like Major chords, Minor chords feature simple combinations of intervals. A root combined with the intervals of a Minor 3rd and Perfect 5th for Minor chords.   Diminished Chords   Diminished chords are tense, unsettled-sounding chords that feature the interval of a Tritone. If you’ve ever heard a piano playing jarring, dramatic chords during old silent movies where a ... Read More

Soloing Over "Autumn Leaves"

...tone solo” is improvising using only the four notes of the given chord (usually 1357). Basically, the idea is to be creative, but set certain limitations so your focus shifts to working on specific things. When you set limitations, you’ll get better at targeted things so you’ll come out with more varied strategies when no limitations are set. The example I wrote out utilizes all eighth notes. The next step would be to vary your improvisation rhythmically. This example uses only chord tones and sets another limitation: keeping your solo within one octave (C-C). Again, once you’re comfortable with this exercise, you ... Read More
