If you have listened to any music, you have definitely heard dominant chords played. They are very common in jazz music and other genres.
A dominant chord contains a number after it, such as “7” (example C7). Identify the dominant chord by the following: 7, 7th, other numbers such as 9 or 13. The “dom7” symbol is also used.
In essence it can be remembered as the chord that has just a number after it; no minor or major.
Guitarist and composer Quist, with his 2017 release ‘Trigger’, forced me out of wheelhouse and comfort-zone relative to the genres I am typically more comfortable with. And the thought of trying to write-up a review of this album intimidates me a little bit, admittedly. Because it is tremendously difficult for me to make references and comparisons to other acts. Quist’s approach to song-writing and guitar playing is unique to me, or at least distinctly different.
‘Dealer of the Gods’ that’s the recognizable name by the equally memorable duo ‘Satan’s Dealer’. And what a statement this album is! While I don’t know if I can call their material unique, it certainly is one of a kind. I typically try not to compare bands with or to each other, but Satan’s Dealer, to me, sounds like if Anthrax embarked on a Doom/Stoner album. Not the best of analogies, but just to give you a flavor.
Alea iacta est. A rather martial statement, but perfectly appropriate considering the profound impact this album had on me. Telekinetic Yeti and their 2017 debut release ‘Abominable’ has the potential to become a cornerstone in the heavy rock genre. I could and should probably end my review right here, because that pretty much sums it up.
The fact is, almost every day I get an email or find a notification online about a new band or album entering the scene. It’s hard to keep up especially if you have an open mind and feel genuinely happy about the fact that there is so much new great music coming your way on a regular basis.
“This is very cool stuff for kids”, according to Brian May who – just for the couple of folks who read this and perhaps don’t know who he is – plays guitar in ‘Queen’. Well, I sure am not anywhere close Brian’s universe, but for him to make a statement like that, that says a lot. So, if you are a skeptic and like to know things for sure, take Brian’s word – he knows what he’s talking about.
I’ve been teaching guitar beginners for a long time now. My youngest student was around 6, the oldest was a woman in her early eighties. When working with children, especially young ones, getting them to focus and keep their attention on task can be very difficult. And while there’s a plethora of children’s guitar books and other instructional resources out there, I’ve never found a single book that did such a wonderful introduction of the instrument.
Most books, even those which are cited amongst the best guitar books for kids, lack that very component. Yet, in my opinion, the ‘introduction phase’, if you will, is undoubtedly the most crucial element. Because if you’re successful in that first step, chances are you’re on a good path on to your guitar journey.
Okay, today we will be taking care of another song request I received – yes, I know, it took me a while. Sorry about that. Anyway, here it is, a full tutorial on what you need to do in order to learn how to play ‘Santa Claus Is Coming To Town’ on guitar. As usual, we will do a comprehensive video lesson and along with that comes a worksheet that you can download from the link below for free.
