This one is number 003. One week after I bought her, Rock ’n’ Wood called me and asked for it back as the other two, which weren’t as perfected as mine, were stolen from their showroom window and they didn’t have a template to make a fourth one.”</p> <p>The Marilyn guitar’s body was carved from cherry (what else?) and features a maple set neck with an ebony fretboard, abalone inlays, and matching cherry headstock overlay. The knobs are also carved out of cherry, giving new meaning to hardwood. The pickups are a pair of mini DiMarzio Super Distortion humbuckers. </p> <p>“They told me they used the smallest humbuckers available to cover the body as little as possible.” </p> <p>Over the past few decades, Johnson has generously shared Marilyn with numerous rock stars, including Frank Zappa, the members of Mötley Crüe, Ronnie Wood, Angus Young and others, all of whom autographed her backside. Longtime Guitar World readers may also recall seeing Marilyn in ads for Johnson’s company (Paradise Woodworks, known today as Louderspeaker) in the mid Eighties, cradled in the hands of Johnson’s sister Joy. </p> <p>“My phone rang off the hook and my mailbox was filled,” says Johnson. “Half of the inquiries were about either my sister or the guitar.” (<em>Editor's note: <a href="http://www.guitarworld.com/photo-gallery-guitar-world-magazine-ads-1980s-part-1">You can see the original Paradise Woodworks ad right here</a>.</em>) </p> <p>Johnson is working on building 100 USA-made guitar and bass duplicates of the original Marilyn guitar, which he plans to sell later this year. He is considering Kickstarter or Indiegogo as a means to fund the project. “The Marilyn centerfold came out 60 years ago, and I bought the guitar about 35 years ago,” he says. “This is where Marilyn’s future begins.”</p> <p>For more information, visit <a href="http://marilynguitar.com/">marilynguitar.com</a>.</p> <p><em>Photos: Paul Crisanti/Photogetgo/Philamonjaro Studios</em></p> http://www.guitarworld.com/it-might-get-weird-sex-string-solidbody-rock-n-wood-marilyn-guitar#comments April 2014 GW Archive It Might Get Weird Electric Guitars News Features Gear Magazine Thu, 24 Apr 2014 21:29:12 +0000 Chris Gill http://www.guitarworld.com/article/21085 Orianthi Shows You How to Play "Heaven In This Hell" — Exclusive Lesson http://www.guitarworld.com/orianthi-shows-you-how-play-heaven-hell-exclusive-lesson <!--paging_filter--><p>In the exclusive lesson video below, Orianthi shows you how to play the solo from "Heaven in This Hell," the title track from her latest studio album.</p> <p>The video, which features close-up shots of the guitarist in action, also features the tabs for everything she plays — not to mention a bit of commentary by Orianthi.</p> <p>“I’d been listening to a lot of Robert Johnson and Howlin’ Wolf,” Orianthi told <em><a href="http://www.guitarworld.com/girl-fire-orianthi-turns-heat-her-new-album-heaven-hell">Guitar World</a></em> about the inspiration behind the album, which she recorded in Nashville with former Eurythmics guitarist Dave Stewart at the helm. </p> <p>“I think you can hear the Delta blues thing in something like the intro to ‘Heaven in This Hell,’ which has that down-home acoustic riff.” </p> <p>Still, these aren’t songs meant for front-porch picking. Rather, Orianthi says, “With every track it was like, How is this gonna go down live? That was the main thing I had in mind when writing and recording these songs.

The relative minor triad of G major is E minor, and <strong>FIGURE 3</strong> depicts an E minor triad played in the same position. Notice that both triads share two of the same notes, G and B.</p> <p> The “magic” happens when we combine these two triads, and we can utilize and analyze the resulting sound within either a G major or an E minor context. <strong>FIGURE 4</strong> shows the two triads combined, so in essence we’ve simply added the E note to the G major triad. </p> <p>Adding E, the sixth of G, implies the sound of a G6 chord. If we play the same pattern over an E minor tonality, the resultant chordal implication is Em7, as shown in <strong>FIGURE 5</strong>, and the single-note triadic-based phrases evoke a different harmonic impression.</p> <p> Let’s now apply this approach to a different tonal center. As shown in <strong>FIGURES 6 and 7</strong>, the combination of the notes of a C major triad—C E G—and an A minor triad—A C E—result in either a C6 sound, as shown in <strong>FIGURE 6</strong>, or an Am7 sound, as shown in <strong>FIGURE 7</strong>. The beauty of this exercise is that it demonstrates how the study of one theoretical concept and its associated single-note patterns can easily be applied to more than one tonal environment. </p> <p>On a grand scale, this means that the study of one idea can be applied to many different harmonic environments, yielding a broader understanding of music theory as well as heightening one’s fretboard awareness. </p> <p>Another great way to use this concept is to combine two different triads that are found within the same tonal center. For example, within the G major scale (G A B C D E F#), one can build a series of seven different triads by starting from each note in the scale and adding thirds above the starting note while remaining diatonic to (within the scale structure of) G major. If we start from B, the third degree of the G major scale, a B minor triad is formed by playing B D F#, notes that<br /> are all thirds apart, as they occur within the G major. </p> <p><strong>FIGURE 8</strong> illustrates a phrase that combines G major and B minor triads. We can then apply this approach to the relative minor of G, Em7, as shown in <strong>FIGURE 9</strong>. When looked at as a whole, combining G major and B minor triads implies a Gmaj13 chord, as shown in <strong>FIGURE 10.</strong></p> <!-- Start of Brightcove Player --><!-- Start of Brightcove Player --><div style="display:none"> </div> <!-- By use of this code snippet, I agree to the Brightcove Publisher T and C found at https://accounts.brightcove.com/en/terms-and-conditions/. --><!-- By use of this code snippet, I agree to the Brightcove Publisher T and C found at https://accounts.brightcove.com/en/terms-and-conditions/. --><script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript" src="http://admin.brightcove.com/js/BrightcoveExperiences.js"></script><object id="myExperience3122444060001" class="BrightcoveExperience"> <param name="bgcolor" value="#FFFFFF" /> <param name="width" value="620" /> <param name="height" value="348" /> <param name="playerID" value="798983031001" /> <param name="playerKey" value="AQ~~,AAAAj36EdAk~,0qwz1H1Ey92wZ6vLZcchClKTXdFbuP3P" /> <param name="isVid" value="true" /> <param name="isUI" value="true" /> <param name="dynamicStreaming" value="true" /> <param name="@videoPlayer" value="3122444060001" /> </object><!-- This script tag will cause the Brightcove Players defined above it to be created as soon as the line is read by the browser.

The box set is an expanded version of the vinyl edition of the album released earlier this month on Record Store Day by Jack White’s Third Man Records. </p> <p>Below, you can check out a video of Young performing the album track “Needle of Death.”</p> <p>Young recorded the collection with White on a refurbished 1947 Voice-O-Graph recording booth at Third Man's Nashville headquarters. Imagine a very simple recording studio not much larger than a phone booth and you'll get the idea. </p> <p>Young describes the album as “an unheard collection of rediscovered songs from the past recorded on ancient electro-mechanical technology that captures and unleashes the essence of something that could have been gone forever.” </p> <p>For the album, Young chose songs that have personal meaning for him, such as British folk artist Bert Jansch's "Needle of Death" (which inspired Young to write 1972's "Needle and the Damage Done"), Bob Dylan's "Girl from the North Country," Willie Nelson's "Crazy," Don Everly's "I Wonder If I Care as Much," Bruce Springsteen's "My Home Town" and many others. </p> <p>Reprise will release the complete box set, which includes a special "direct feed from the booth" audiophile vinyl version and a DVD that captured the original electro-mechanical process, along with comments from the producers and recording engineers. The set includes:</p> <p>• Standard audio LP pressed on 180-gram black vinyl<br /> • Audiophile LP pressed on 180-gram black vinyl<br /> • Standard audio CD<br /> • DVD with footage from the recording<br /> • 12" x 12", 32-page full color booklet<br /> • A download card for the hi-res audiophile version of the album.<br /> • Seven six-inch vinyl discs pressed on clear vinyl. The seventh disc of this set features a version of Dylan's "Blowin' in the Wind" backed with an alternate take of "Crazy."</p> <p>Click <a href="http://neilyoung.warnerbrosrecords.com/" target="_blank">here</a> to pre-order <em>A Letter Home</em>. </p> <p><iframe width="620" height="365" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/6H47jI6xanA" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe></p> <fieldset class="fieldgroup group-additional-content"><legend>Additional Content</legend><div class="field field-type-nodereference field-field-related-artist"> <div class="field-label"><p><strong>Related Artist:</strong>&nbsp;<p></div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/neil-young">Neil Young</a> </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> http://www.guitarworld.com/neil-young-performs-needle-death-new-album-letter-home-video#comments Neil Young Videos News Thu, 24 Apr 2014 18:06:51 +0000 Christopher Scapelliti http://www.guitarworld.com/article/21094 'Rolling Stones Gear' Author Andy Babiuk Takes Us Behind the Scenes for the Making of a Classic http://www.guitarworld.com/rolling-stones-gear-author-andy-babiuk-takes-us-behind-scenes-making-classic <!--paging_filter--><p>“People ask me all the time — because I’ve done books about the Beatles and the Rolling Stones — who I like better, but it really wasn’t about that,” Andy Babiuk, author of the fantastic new <em><a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1617130923/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&amp;camp=1789&amp;creative=390957&amp;creativeASIN=1617130923&amp;linkCode=as2&amp;tag=nyrocculexa-20">Rolling Stones Gear</a></em> told me recently. </p> <p>“I did <em><a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0879309563/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&amp;camp=1789&amp;creative=390957&amp;creativeASIN=0879309563&amp;linkCode=as2&amp;tag=nyrocculexa-20">Beatles Gear</a></em> first because they really did pave the way for everyone and everything that came after. </p> <p>"But as soon as I finished that book, I knew I wanted to write the definitive Stones book.”</p> <p><em>Rolling Stones Gear</em>, Babiuk’s followup to <em>Beatles Gear</em>, is perhaps just that. <em>Rolling Stones Gear</em> isn't just a comprehensive list of the equipment the Rolling Stones have used over the course of the band's 50-plus-year career — though it is, of course, that. It’s also a fantastic, detailed chronology of the band’s history and might be the most complete and compelling biography to date.</p> <p>“I was very careful not to make <em>Beatles Gear</em> a nuts-and-bolts equipment book,” Babiuk said. “You don’t have to be a gear wizard to enjoy <em>Beatles Gear</em>. I wanted it to be a book even a casual fan of the Beatles could pick up and enjoy, but it also was intended to give the reader insight into the instruments the band used and what was special or unique about them. </p> <p>"With <em>Stones Gear</em>, I wanted it to be even more over the top. So if you’re a Stones fan, you can read the story of the band, learn about the equipment they used and actually see pictures of the band using the equipment from sources that people just don’t have access to.” </p> <p>What Babiuk has done with co-author Greg Prevost is provide not just an excellent oral history of the band, but a visual one as well. The over-sized, hefty hardcover book features hundreds of color and black and white pictures of the Stones, not just performing or posing for the camera, but using the equipment mentioned. Best of all, the details provided allow the serious reader to easily find the footage of the band mentioned.</p> <p>“When I did <em>Beatles Gear</em>, YouTube didn’t exist to see clips of the gear,” Babiuk said. “I had to resort to old VHS and even beta tapes. So it’s great that now, while you’re reading the book, you can pretty easily find the clips I’m referring to and see the Stones in action using the pieces mentioned.”</p> <p>Brian Jones looms large over the early pages of the book. Clearly interested in any musical instrument he could get his hands on in the early days of the band, Jones quickly fades into the background as Mick Jagger and Keith Richards steer the band to stardom. As the story progresses, as a result of his unprecedented access (Babiuk was able to play many of the pieces pictured in the book), Babiuk is able to provide tremendous insight into the equipment used by all the Stones, including those of drummer Charlie Watts, guitarists Mick Taylor and Ronnie Wood, and especially bassist Bill Wyman.</p> <p>“Bill is really the Stones’ historian,” Babiuk said. “His <em>Rolling with the Stones</em> book is probably the best book about the band out there, and he’s kept everything over the years. So I was able to visit with him at his home in London and show him 450 pictures in chronological order. And he was really helpful, but what I realized is that these are really just guys. </p> <p>"They weren’t gearheads or obsessed with every little detail. The things we fans agonize over weren’t that important to the band in many cases. But I felt it was important to get this information down — and to get the band’s insight as much as possible — so there’s a better understanding of the inner-workings of the Stones and what it’s taken to make everything happen over the years.”</p> <p>Babiuk’s approach, and his undeniable credibility as a serious rock historian, earned him the trust of the band and its tight inner-circle. But it also earned him a historical footnote of his own. </p> <p>“One of the coolest things that came out of this,” Babiuk said, “is that Pierre De Beauport — the Stones’ equipment manager, who was incredibly helpful to me and sympathetic to what I was trying to accomplish — got out some of the pieces that were in storage for us to look at an photograph, and they ended up using them. So the [Gibson] Hummingbird [acoustic] Mick is now using on tour is Keith’s guitar that we write about in the book, and that is a really important piece.”</p> <p><iframe width="620" height="365" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/CiEkH6hbEZ4" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe></p> <p><em><a href="http://www.digitalretro.com/jeffslate.htm">Jeff Slate</a> is a NYC-based solo singer-songwriter and music journalist.

It will make Slayer history as it will be released on Nuclear Blast Records through the band's own label imprint, closing out a 28-year relationship with Rick Rubin and American Recordings.</p> <p>"Rick has played a huge role in our career, we've made some great albums with him," Tom Araya said. "But today is a new day, record companies don't play the kind of role they once did, and we really like the idea of going out on our own, connecting directly with our fans, and Nuclear Blast is fired up about taking on that challenge with us."</p> <p>Slayer (Tom Araya/vocals, bass, Kerry King/guitar, drummer Paul Bostaph and Gary Holt) will spend the next few months on the road touring North American and European festivals and headlining dates, sharing stages with Metallica, Iron Maiden and more (See all the current dates below). They're expected to be back in the studio in the fall to record the rest of the new album.</p> <p><iframe width="620" height="365" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/sBG1WLxlQ9M" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe></p> <p>MAY<br /> 9 The Great Salt Air, Salt Lake City, UT<br /> 10 Fillmore, Denver, CO<br /> 11 Shrine, Billings, MT<br /> 13 Uptown Theatre, Kansas City, MO<br /> 15 The Pageant, St Louis, MO<br /> 16 Eagles Ballroom, Milwaukee, WI<br /> 17 Rock on the Range, Columbus, OH</p> <p>EUROPEAN TOUR<br /> MAY<br /> 28 Sonisphere Festival @ Hietaniemi Beach, Helsinki, Finland<br /> 30 STHLM Fields @ Gardet Royal Park, Stockholm, Sweden<br /> 31 FortaRock Festival Goffertpark, Nijmegen, Netherlands</p> <p>JUNE<br /> 1 Sonisphere Festival @ Valle Hoven, Oslo, Norway<br /> 3 Horsens Gaol, Horsens, Denmark<br /> 4 Sonisphere Festival @ Imtech Arena, Hamburg, Germany<br /> 5 Den Atelier, Luxembourg City, Luxembourg<br /> 7 Rock AM Ring, Nurburgring, Germany<br /> 8 Rock Im Ring, Nurnberg, Germany<br /> 9 Z7 Konzertfabrik, Prattein, Switzerland<br /> 13 Nova Rock @Pannonia Fields, Nicklesdorf, Austria<br /> 15 Live Club, Milan, Italy<br /> 16 Estragon, Bologna, Italy<br /> 18 Paloma, Niems, France<br /> 20 Hellfest @Rue de Champ Louet, Clisson, France<br /> 21 Tons of Rock Restival, Halden, Norway<br /> 24 Stadion Miejeski, Poznan, Poland<br /> 26 La Laiterie, Strasbourg, France<br /> 27 Graspop, Dessel, Belgium<br /> 30 Limelight, Belfast, Ireland</p> <p>JULY<br /> 1 Academy, Dublin, Ireland<br /> 4 Paris Le Zenith, Paris, France<br /> 5 Sonisphere Festival @ Knebworth, Knebworth Park, England</p> <p>AUGUST<br /> 3 Milo Club, Nizny Novgorad, Russia<br /> 4 Arena Moscow Club, Moscow, Russia<br /> 5 A2 Club, St. Petersburg, Russia<br /> 8 Brutal Assault Festival, Old Army Fortress Josefov, Jaromer, Czech Republic<br /> 10 Heavy Montreal Festival @ Parc Jean Drapeau, Montreal, Quebec</p> <p><em>Photo: From left, guitarist Gary Holt (standing in for the late Jeff Hanneman), Tom Araya, Kerry King and Paul Bostaph</em></p> <fieldset class="fieldgroup group-additional-content"><legend>Additional Content</legend><div class="field field-type-nodereference field-field-related-artist"> <div class="field-label"><p><strong>Related Artist:</strong>&nbsp;<p></div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/slayer">Slayer</a> </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> http://www.guitarworld.com/slayer-debut-new-song-implode-revolver-golden-gods-show#comments Slayer News Thu, 24 Apr 2014 16:06:58 +0000 Damian Fanelli http://www.guitarworld.com/article/21089 Guitar Legends Celebrates 50 Greatest Classic Rock Guitar Songs — with Bonus Instructional DVD http://www.guitarworld.com/guitar-legends-celebrates-50-greatest-classic-rock-guitar-songs-bonus-instructional-dvd <!--paging_filter--><p><em>Guitar Legends: 50 Greatest Classic Rock Guitar Songs</em> — including an instructional DVD with tabs — is <a href="http://guitarworld.myshopify.com/products/guitar-legends-50-greatest-classic-rock-guitar-songs/?&amp;utm_source=gw_homepage&amp;utm_medium=daily_scroller&amp;utm_campaign=Legends50ClassicRock">available now at the Guitar World Online Store for only $9.99.</a></p> <p>It's a collection of the best classic rock songs of all-time, from Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin and Lynyrd Skynyrd, to Nirvana, the Allman Brothers Band and the Eagles!</p> <p>The editors of <em>Guitar World</em>, the world's best-selling guitar magazine, have compiled an entire issue dedicated to the 50 all-time greatest classic rock songs.

My first guitar was a Gretsch 6120, and I just loved listening to artists like Elvis, Chuck Berry and Stray Cats. But when I wanted to go make records, it was hard. I couldn't really be on the show [<em>Drake &amp; Josh</em>] and then go in and do a three-piece rockabilly-type record of Fifties music.</p> <p><strong>How did the collaboration with Brian Setzer come about?</strong></p> <p>I've been a fan of Brian's for such a long time and had the opportunity to go backstage and meet him from time to time. It got to the point to where I started becoming a familiar face backstage. I still remember when I first presented the idea for this album to him. He was confused at first and said, "Wait a minute — you mean you want to make a rockabilly record?" [laughs]. I said "Yeah, this is what I've always wanted to do!"</p> <p><strong>What was your criteria for choosing songs for ‘<em>Ready Steady Go!</em>’?</strong></p> <p>It was really about songs I loved playing and singing growing up. What's really cool is that younger audiences seem to think that a lot of these songs are new. It's given me the opportunity to introduce this great music to a new generation without them thinking I'm just trying to play them their grandparents' music. They're embracing it as their own.</p> <p><strong>What was it like working with Brian?</strong></p> <p>It's hard to explain the feeling. It was breathtaking. Just to be sitting there playing a song I wrote and having Brian there with his gear in the room playing live with us was unreal.</p> <p><strong>What's the origin of the song "Bitchcraft"?</strong></p> <p>I grew up loving and playing this music but had never attempted to write in this style before. I remember I was listening to some old Django [Reinhardt] and Glenn Miller and just jamming around when the lick came to me. I don't think it's about anyone specifically. It's just an amalgamation of the relationships I've been through. But it was my first attempt at writing that jazzy, swing-influenced rockabilly.</p> <p><iframe width="620" height="365" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/rQYBVPVeQn0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe></p> <p><strong>Do you have plans to tour?</strong></p> <p>We're working on a few things outside of the country right now as well as doing some mall dates and children's hospitals here in the U.S. Then we'll be gearing up to tour sometime this summer.</p> <p><strong>Tell me a little about your musical background.</strong></p> <p>I started playing music when I was around 10. I always wanted to be in a band, so I started out by playing drums. I played with a few groups but always remember wanting to be performing out in front of the band.</p> <p><strong>What inspired you to make the switch to guitar?</strong></p> <p>I had the opportunity to do a movie with Roger Daltrey of the Who. In the movie, I played a guitar student. Since I had to learn how to play somewhat for the movie, I was introduced to the guitar. When I picked up the guitar for the first time, it opened up a whole new world for me. I became obsessed with writing and playing. That's really how it started.</p> <p><strong>Who were some of your influences?</strong></p> <p>In addition to Brian, I love George Harrison, Carl Perkins, Brian May, Danny Gatton and Stevie Ray Vaughan. My dad was also a huge influence on me growing up. I remember we would sit in front of the TV and he would show me all of this classic stuff: The Beatles on Ed Sullivan and Elvis on Milton Berle. Then we'd get in the car and would listen to the Beach Boys, Beatles and Buddy Holly. I fell in love with that style of music and culture. It opened up my whole musical world.</p> <p><strong>What other projects are you working on?</strong></p> <p>I have a movie coming out for Nickelodeon called <em>A Fairly Odd Summer</em>. It's the third installment of the Fairly Oddparents movies. We've been taking the cartoon and making it live action.</p> <p><strong>You also do the voice of Peter Parker on the animated <em>Ultimate Spider-Man</em>. What's that like?</strong></p> <p>It's amazing. I get to go in and work alongside some of the greatest vocal talents of all time. People I grew up listening to. Then to have a legend like Stan Lee come in to do voice overs with us is just unbelievable. </p> <p><strong>What satisfies you the most about <em>Ready Steady Go!</em>?</strong></p> <p>Honestly, it’s got to be putting the record on and listening to "I Won't Stand In Your Way" with Brian's guitar up against my vocal. I still remember listening to his original version on vinyl as a kid and just wearing the needle out by playing it over and over. </p> <p>We recently pressed the new album to vinyl and I just got a test copy. Since I still have the same record player I had when I was 15, I set it down, put the needle on and started listening to "I Won't Stand in Your Way." It was a surreal moment. If you had told me back then that this was going to happen one day, I never would have believed it. Having the opportunity to go to Nashville and make a record with one of my biggest influences is a dream come true.</p> <p>For more information, visit:</p> <p><strong>Drake Bell Official Website:</strong> <a href="http://drakebell.com/">drakebell.com</a><br /> <strong>Facebook:</strong> <a href="https://www.facebook.com/bell.drake">facebook.com/bell.drake</a> </p> <p><em>Photo Credit: Drake Bell</em></p> http://www.guitarworld.com/actormusician-drake-bell-discusses-ready-steady-go-his-new-album-brian-setzer#comments Brian Setzer Drake Bell James Wood Interviews News Features Wed, 23 Apr 2014 21:55:18 +0000 James Wood http://www.guitarworld.com/article/21080 Yngwie Malmsteen, Uli Jon Roth, Gary Hoey and Bumblefoot Announce Guitar Gods Tour http://www.guitarworld.com/yngwie-malmsteen-uli-jon-roth-gary-hoey-and-bumblefoot-announce-guitar-gods-tour <!--paging_filter--><p>This summer, Yngwie Malmsteen will join Uli Jon Roth, Gary Hoey and Guns N' Roses' Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal for the first-ever Guitar Gods festival tour. </p> <p>Malmsteen will headline the tour, which is billed an "epic celebration — six-plus hours — of the instrument for a full evening of guitar pyrotechnics."
