Preston's astonishing technique will change the way you approach your instrument. In his hands, a single guitar becomes numerous instruments, creating a multitude of sonic and rhythmic effects. He plays and analyzes 3 original compositions: "Slap Funk," "Border Towns," and "Tribes," teaching "rim shots," "bongo hits," slap harmonics, double hammer-ons, two-hand tapping, right hand fretting, and other techniques. By learning these tunes you'll gain myriad ideas for your own solo guitar style. Intermediate/advanced.
"Buster B. Jones is an acoustic player, a fingerpicker, a country flavored soloist, and he’s one of the finest players we've heard in years… His technique is only a means to an end. His true gifts are his melodic sense, innate musicianship, unfailing human, and brilliant improvisational powers. He can drive a tune with fluid rhythmic force or stroke it with sensuous, loving touch… He’s a monster player with chops galore, great ideas and an encyclopedic reservoir of guitaristic influences."
Acclaimed rock pioneer Lou Reed's music has transcended generations with uncommon ease. After cofounding the Velvet Underground in the 1960s, the masterful musician went solo in the '70s, carving out a career as a vocalist and poet whose influence can be heard in everything from punk to glam, new wave to modern rock. A Night With Lou Reed, documenting his sold-out 1983 engagement at the Bottom Line in Manhattan's Greenwich Village, brings the music home to where it started.
I have a collection of 135 titles (142 CDs) issued by Goldmine/Soul Supply record company. This is not a box set but rather it is a collection of albums that are similar in that they all are rare soul compilations by the same company. There are some tracks that are on more than one album but considering the scope and magnitude of this collection, the number of duplicated tracks is small. Some CDs have good artwork, some have none, most have some artwork of varying quality. All are 320 CBR MP3 and are fully tagged. Original post now has added CDs.
