75 Jahre „Vom Winde verweht“ in Atlanta

75 Jahre „Vom Winde verweht“ in Atlanta
Im Juni 1936 erschien der Roman Vom Winde verweht. Zum 75. Jubiläum präsentiert eine Ausstellung in Atlanta Teile des verloren geglaubten Manuskripts.
Die Ausstellung im Atlanta History Center zeigt vom 4. Juni bis 5. September vier Kapitel des maschinengeschriebenen Original-Manuskripts von Margaret Mitchell. Das letzte, 63. Kapitel ist Blatt für Blatt ausgestellt. Darauf zu sehen sind auch handschriftliche Notizen der Autorin und ihres Ehemanns John Marsh. Das Manuskript galt als gänzlich verloren, bis die nun ausgestellten Seiten in einer Bibliothek in Connecticut wieder ans Tageslicht kamen. Die Ausstellung zeigt zudem die Erstausgabe des Buches, den Schreibtisch, an dem der Roman entstand und Briefe der Autorin.
Zum 75. Jubiläum der Erstveröffentlichung am 30. Juni 1936 bietet die Südstaatenmetropole, in der Mitchell den Roman schrieb, auch einige weitere Veranstaltungen. So beleuchtet das Bühnentheater Ansley Park Playhouse vom 2. bis 19. Juni die Gedankenwelt der Autorin in Melita Easters‘ Stück Mrs. John Marsh – The World Knew Her as Margaret Mitchell. Die Stadtbücherei Atlanta-Fulton Central Library zeigt in der Schau Margaret Mitchell Exhibit: The Movie, welche Rolle Mitchell bei der Verfilmung 1939 spielte. Zu sehen sind neben ihrer Schreibmaschine auch Mitchells Exemplar des Drehbuchs und eine persönliche Sammlung von Szenenfotos. Einblick in das Leben der Autorin auch außerhalb des Jubiläums gewährt ganzjährig das Margaret Mitchell House, das vom Atlanta History Center betrieben wird. Zu sehen ist dort die bescheidene Wohnung, in der Mitchell ihr Werk schrieb.

Steel Guitar News

Hello fellow players,

The pedal board on a steel guitar.  Do you realize how many different spacings, pedal travel and pedal shapes there are from guitar to guitar?  When you say a pedal feels good, does this mean you want one to push real easy or have enough resistance that you can get half pedal without running the pedal into the floor?

There are many different types of pedal feels and of course, pedal shapes.  If a pedal is rounded off from the top to the end, the ratio actually changes as your foot pushes it down and walks along the top of it.  This might be okay if you get used to it, but after playing a guitar with a flat pedal on top like Franklin or Fessenden, it could be pretty confusing.

The first Emmons LeGrande and actually second and third LeGrandes, I took the pedals off and replaced them with the old style cast push pull pedals.  I like the feel much better even though the tension from all the way up to all the way down was identical.  Upon seeing Buddy Emmons first LeGrande, I see that he did the same thing.

I personally don�t like the LeGrande pedals because of the sharp edge on top that prevents a player from sliding his foot across the top of the pedal.  The old Emmons pedals, you could do this quite easily.  The good thing about this is if you have a belt sander, it�s very easy to cut this sharp edge off the tops of the pedals.

The Sho-Bud pedals do not have this trouble.  I like the newer Sho-Bud pedals that are thin from the shank to the end of the pedal because it gives you more space between the pedals without the pedals being further apart.  However, the very wide spacing like on the early Sho-Bud Pro IIIs, these new pedals give you almost too much space between the pedals.  But let me say this out loud.  

All these pedal sizes and pedal feels I�m talking about really must be sized and adjusted to the player.  The person that likes one may hate another.  I remember Tom Morrell and I building some of the first MSAs and Tommy himself built a steel guitar with only two inches of space between them.  This was horribly narrow for me and I just couldn�t play it.  But he wanted it that way and played it very well.

I like two and three quarter spacing or even more if the pedals are wide.  I just put the pedal setup on my new Clinesmith and because of the width of the pedal, I went to three and a quarter inch spacing.  This would be too much on a Sho-Bud or Emmons, but it�s just perfect for Bigsby or Clinesmith.

Remember here, Clinesmith and Bigsby pedals, like the first Sho-Bud pedals, are built with a very wide pad on the end so they require either thinning them down with a band saw, which I have done, or add more space between pedals overall.

Most steel guitars today that are on my floor here are a good blend of width and spacing, for instance, the new Mullen guitars.  It�s obvious that these guitars are being designed and built by a very good player, Mr. Del Mullen himself.  These guitars are extremely comfortable to sit down behind and play well the first time you try.

Just remember that any pedals that�s too easy to push is not going to give you the control that you need of the note changing from one pitch to another.  Also, the rate of string change will determine the pedal feel.  The harder you push the pedal the farther a note goes?  This is not good.  The pedal should push with about the same tension all the way to the stop.  As you push the pedal, it should get progressively easier, not progressively harder.

You may notice if you�ve ever played an Emmons push pull, the farther the pedal goes down, the easier it is to push.  This ratio of pressure can be adjusted on all guitars.  However, it may take a different bell crank, or different parts to accomplish this.  The Emmons LeGrande guitars are also very good about incorporating this feature.

I have seen several homemade guitars in my lifetime and guitars like the Sho-Bud Fingertip that have progressively harder push the farther you push the pedal.  Not bad if you get use to it and can control it possibly, but not for me.  

The Sho-Bud Permanent, built from �57 to �65 is fine, but the Fingertip made form �64 to �68, unless adjusted very precisely, does not have what I call good pedal action.  However, this Fingertip model was a brilliant design and the great granddaddy of the all pull guitars of today.

Howdy in Spreitenbach (CH)

Howdy in Spreitenbach (CH)

On Saturday, May 27th the Swiss Band Howdy played in Spreitenbach. The concert was on the occasion of a festivity that is held every two years. Luckily, they could play in a marquee because it was raining nearly the whole day. It seems that Howdy have a special wire to the weather god, shortly before the concert started the rain stopped and no one was getting wet during the walk to the concert place. The band exists since 1994 and has played with great success at different festivals in Switzerland and foreign countries.
Leadsinger
Renato Rocchinotti and his musicians (Marc Zwicky - Keyboard, Backing Vocals, Adrian Aerne - Guitars, Backing Vocals, René Etterli - Bass, Bosco Blatter - Drums) arranged a very colorful repertoire for this evening.
The program included songs from different famous country singers as well as songs composed by themselves and also some tunes in Swiss-German. A lot of their cover-songs are from the American band "Sawyer Brown" because these songs perfectly match the typical sound of
Howdy.
Even though the evening was held under the slogan "Rockin' Country", the program was completed by some softer songs. Howdy succeeded in sharing their great sense of humor and their joy for playing music with the audience. Unfortunately a lot of guests left the marquee before the end of the concert despite the good vibes. However, Howdy gave their best until the last tone was played.
The man in charge of the sound was Peter "Voli" Vollenweider. Despite the challenging circumstances, he did a great job.

Howdy in Spreitenbach (CH)

Am Samstag, 27. Mai spielte die Schweizer Band Howdy in Spreitenbach. Der Anlass war ein zweitägiges Quartierfest, das alle zwei Jahre durchgeführt wird.
Glücklicherweise war ein Festzelt aufgestellt, denn es regnete beinahe den ganzen Tag.
Howdy haben jedoch einen besonderen Draht zum Wettergott, kurz vor Konzertbeginn hörte der Regen auf und das Publikum konnte trockenen Fusses zum Konzertort spazieren.
Die Band existiert bereits seit 1994 und konnte an verschiedenen Festivals in der Schweiz und im Ausland ihr Können unter Beweis stellen.
Leadsänger
Renato Rocchinotti und seine Musiker (Marc Zwicky - Keyboard, Backing Vocals, Adrian Aerne - Gitarre, Backing Vocals, René Etterli - Bass, Bosco Blatter - Drums) stellten für diesen Abend ein bunt gemixtes Repertoire zusammen.
Dazu gehörten viele bekannte Songs verschiedener Country-Grössen, Eigenkompositionen und Stücke in Mundart. Viele der Cover-Songs stammen ursprünglich von der amerikanischen Band "Sawyer Brown", denn sie entsprechen dem typischen
Howdy-Sound voll und ganz.
Der Abend stand unter dem Motto "Rockin' Country", die etwas sanfteren Klänge fehlten jedoch auch nicht.
Spielfreude und Humor wurden von
Howdy ganz klar ans Publikum übertragen. Leider verliessen, trotz der guten Stimmung, viele der Gäste vor Konzertende das Festzelt. Howdy liessen sich davon nicht beirren und gaben ihr Bestes bis zum letzten vorbereiteten Song.
Für den Sound war Peter "Voli" Vollenweider zuständig. Seine Aufgabe war nicht gerade einfach, er hat aber auf jeden Fall einen super Job erledigt.

Interview with David Ball

Interview with David Ball

CL: Hi I am Christian Lamitschka and today I present you David Ball. David, welcome to the show.

DB: Well thank you Christian, good to be here.

CL: David, we met each other a couple times before, so what happened since the last time we met each other.

DB: We met each other, what, four ago?

CL: Yes.

DB: I’ve been a busy boy. I spent a lot of time in Texas playing in the Fort Worth area for a few year, but I stayed in Nashville. Since then I put together a new band probably about two years ago called The Pioneer Playboys. These guys were really playing in a kind of an old style, but new style, which fit me real good. I started playing with them, I think they kicked out their lead singer, their new lead guy. I took his place. I didn’t force him out. So they started learning my songs. We started getting good and about six months later we went to the studio at the invitation of my good friend Dan Frizzel, who had recorded Private Malone and stuff like that with me. We went to the studio and did this record. It’s kind of a live record in the studio.

CL: Folks to have an idea to what we are talking now, that’s his CD, it’s an awesome CD. It has 11 songs on it and David will tell us now, which is his personal favorite on this album and why.

DB: I have to chose? There has to be a favorite? My favorite is “What’ll I Do If I Don’t Have You”, it’s just one of those songs that’ll that stick with you, a melody that just fits me. I wrote it with a friend of mine. The song just fell out of the sky and it’s one of the few songs that I can play to the audience that has never heard this song before. In the middle of this song, they start clapping, it’s like I’m not really sure and I think they like it a lot. I hope everybody gets to hear it, it’s very special to me.

CL: David, if fans like to get more information about you, where do they have to go to?

DB: They can find me at www.davidball.com . We kinda make a pretty good presence on the net at the web and all those place. Look for us out there. You can order a copy of the new CD at davidball.com too, it’s out there.

CL: If someone is ordering the CD do you put a personal note on it?

DB: If they request that, I sure can. I’m very proud of this record and it features the band you know. The first times they’ve been in the studio, they really didn’t know how to behave you know. They were a little bit rowdy, a kind of a night club band and they had to cut all that out. Or they were sneaking around the broom closet and nipped some (drink), but we got it done. It took a little longer and it cost a little more, but we got it done.

NEVER BE THE SAME marks the sophomore release for the 38-year old Muskoka, Ontario born and Nashville based song writer. With expectations running high after supporting superstar Reba McEntire on her Canadian tour along with garnering dual Canadian Country Music Association awards for Female Artist of the Year and Songwriter(s) Of The Year (Johnny Reid-‘Dance With Me’), Victoria Banks admitted to feeling nervous going into the studio to cut this album. She need not of worried regarding this 11-track offering because as far as this old grey is concerned it most certainly passes my whistle test and is nothing short than a triumph and something she can be rightly proud of.

Banks who produced the record assisted by Grammy-winning engineer Eric Legg takes the listener on a modern day Music Row journey drawing on her own personal experiences over the last 18 months. There have been many highs and lows: honours, singing at major venues, escape from an abusive relationship and sadly the loss a parent but seeking that inner strength to carry on.

Inside the digipak the liner notes include the quote “Music is the medicine of the breaking heart” - This project is about strength, resilience, empowerment and healing. It includes accompanying lyrics and a sepia-toned photo as a small child with her late mother. The challenge for any songwriter, when airing all of their laundry publicly, on a trial by fire basis, is to convey those messages authentically to gain universal acceptance. She certainly succeeds on this emotional roller coaster which is a labour of love from top to bottom.

It is by no means mournful and predominately upbeat which is immediately apparent on the energetic uplifting opener ‘Come On’, the first single released to radio. It’s co-written with Susie Brown and Danelle Leverett, better known as Texas-Utah girl duo The JaneDear Girls. Encountering the blank page syndrome at a Sony song writing session who better to turn to on a track that captures the whirlwind feeling of falling madly in the love than none other than Miss Taylor Swift! In an adjacent writing room they heard a piano being played and it sounded “really cool”. Socially they poked their heads round the door and kindly asked Taylor to play it for them on a yet to materialize song. Inspiration is infectious it seems, on returning Victoria picked up her guitar and the creative juices flowed. It’s written from sub conscious, with the delivery of lines like: Just Kiss Me, Leave It All Behind/ There’s No Use Waiting Or Hesitating, the girl drops hints like atom bombs to her guy on a first date on this breezy affair drenched with fiddle (Larry Franklin).

The swampy, hard hitting and purely fictional self penned murder mystery ‘Jackson’ is the one song that thankfully doesn’t draw on Banks’ own experience! As the writer of CCMA nominated single ‘The Wheel’ ideas seem to soak up whilst she’s on the highway. Part of the brain that questions and self edits, for her, are probably occupied when travelling - The words: It’s a long way back to Jackson in a beat-up Cadillac / With a Bible on the floorboard and a body in the back suddenly landed on the drivers lap. In time the different roles for the characters developed. Watching Reba side stage with story songs like ‘Fancy’, most likely stirred the thought process. An artist not afraid to take risks when exploring story telling aspects rather than worrying about labels serving up formulaic cookie cutters. Here Banks finally plays the part of a big sister who knows the truth and is there waiting late at night with a .45 and takes revenge in this soap opera.

With Bruce Hornsby-like opening piano riffs (Michael Rojas) the title cut ‘Never Be The Same’ quickly develops into a glorious piece, Banks breathy vocal is mesmerizing. Written with album graphic designer Mary Sue England (Pam Tillis band), herself no stranger to feeling pain she shares both the hurt and a joy as tears are washed away, with guitar salvos ringing out Banks digs deep as she sings the inlay words: I have lived and learned and healed and hurt and laughed and cursed and prayed, and I will never be the same.
This track encompasses the album theme whereby difficult life experiences leave a mark, be they good or bad, and mold you as a human being. In time, given the right breaks scars heal and make you feel beautiful inside and with life’s simple pleasures once more bring forth a smile - From laying fresh flowers on a grave to seeing the future in a baby’s face.

On fast paced ‘I’m Gone’ , a misunderstood and undesired Banks spits out words in overdrive on this break-up track ,empathising with the emotion, Tania Hancheroff a demo and backing vocalist perfectly lays down a delicious harmony.

With its driving guitar riffs ‘Feel Like A Kid Again’ brings to mind Joe Walsh’s ‘Rocky Mountain Way’. This is one of 6 tracks that recording artist Rachel Procter collaborates on. Together they wrote Jessica Simpsons 2008 Top 20 chart single ‘Come On Over’. There is certain spontaneity between them, penning songs from an unstructured involuntary angle to a lyric and hooky melodies.

The heartfelt, emotional charged mid-paced ‘Somebody Does’, written with Procter and Julie Roberts, is self therapy for Banks. Feeling isolated the need to feel wanted and cared for is understood with every word as she utters: Somebody’s missing you, needing you, thinkin’ you hung the moon.
The song writing trio again combine forces on the lively ‘Mama Said Don’t, it relates a tale of a rebellious teen disregarding mama’s advise when chasing the wrong boys. With deep bass lines Mark Hill (Keith Urban, Reba McEntire) and dynamic percussion (Scott Williamson) it maintains the gritty pace. The Southern gals here aid the Canadian, adding some American twang to the chorus line: “Mama said don’t/ I swear that I won’t

The sparse, delicate and heavenly ‘Blue As My Broken Heart’ was seized from the original demo. Despite some sound issues the arrangement is truly magical. Kelly Back offers the most delicious guitar tones. One can easily get lost in the beyond the blue melancholy as tears are shared in an enriching manner. Sony writer Dani Flowers joins forces with Procter to develop a beautiful gentle energy which allowed Banks the freedom to be creative once more following her mothers loss.

The humorous ‘Barefoot Girl’ takes a swipe at the beauty industry chasing perfection. Forget the designer dress and high feels this real live lady prefers a pick-up truck ride to a riverbank getaway to have fun with her indebted man. A track reminiscent of the McEntire’s #1 smash ‘Turn On The Radio’ from the pen of Cherie and Mark Oakley.

Remember That’ was the first country single for Jessica Simpson from her 2008 album DO YOU KNOW.
Here the song writers interpretation is powerful, the pain is felt, the writer offers sympathy to an abused woman advising her to be brave, take her heart and run. She’s been there and understands – I’ve stood there in your shoes. Primarily a songwriter over many years, pitching songs to other label artists, the ultimate trial as Banks is well aware is the 30 second test. A songs needs to be an attention grabber, with enough ear candy to keep it interesting. Here guitar fills and harmonies move it forward keeping it interesting whilst running a delicate line of adding too much so the message gets lost in the mix - The right balance is just about struck here.

The Celtic flavoured and prayer-like ‘The Other Side’, anchors this collection and holds significant bittersweet memories for Banks. Whilst busy with a tour schedule and just days before performing at the 2009 CCMA’s, she received the news of her mothers passing. She had to fly home to be with her family and decide with their blessing whether to curtail the concert dates or stay and grieve. She continued but returned to Ontario and was able to sing this at the funeral. The album is dedicated to her and with its uplifting vibes it fittingly reflects how she felt about life and death - Raise me up in a silent prayer or a newborn baby’s cry.

After the CD launch on May 17th at the Nashville’s Bluebird Cafe (“the songwriters church”), her now fiancé and backing singer David Petrelli, so impressed, took to the stage, played a song and promptly proposed!
Engage with Victoria Banks and you won’t be disappointed – this project rises above the ordinary.

Born This Way - Lady Gaga, Tay Tay or Lady A - What’s You Poison CMA ?


Born This Way - Lady Gaga, Tay Tay or Lady A - What’s You Poison CMA ?

Whilst going for Internet ads, along with promotional appearances on BBC’s Graham Norton Show and headlining BBC Radio 1's Big Weekend in Carlisle on Sunday 15 May 2011, well it’s been almost impossible to escape the fact that Pop phenomenon Lady Gaga had a new album ready to hit the shelves to serve up to her little monsters, called BORN THIS WAY.

So why flag up this lady on a Country music website?
Well after making her grand entrance in an MDF coffin and watching her live TV performance one is struck by the fact that there is more to her music than meets the eye with the lush interludes of jazz.
I thought she was pure pop - I was wrong! Intrigued I searched further only to discover that Lady Gaga put a spin on her hit single, ‘Born This Way.’ with a country version ! It was released on 26 March 2011 and appears to have been made available to country radio in America.
The native New Yorker made some subtle edits to the lyrics to show her red, white and blue street cred as she sings:
If I wanna make it country, baby, it’s OK / ‘Cause I was born, I was born, I was born this way / From London, Paris, Japan, back to USA / Yeah, I was born on the road / I was born to be brave.” For good measure she mentions “mama” and the great almighty with lines My mama told me when I was young / We are all born superstars and 'Cause God makes no mistakes I'm on the right track baby.

So was this version widely embraced by the country airwaves?
It seems not, with the red-states in America due to the lyrical content endorsing the gay movement, trans-gendered references and reference to H.I.M . They played it safe and endorsed the comments made by CMT, who said, “Furthermore, I doubt a song that even hints at things like drag queens would ever make it on country radio.”

Some Ottawa stations may have played it but the UK media have most certainly not to date who instead have being going gaga over country queen Dolly with her pending visit rather than paying any attention to Stefani Germanotta (aka Lady Gaga). Are they too concerned about losing their listener figures or upsetting the diehard fan?

In what is meant to be an all embracing America in the Obama era it seems a shame, because the track has a bluegrass tinge and southern rock feel – Yes it’s undeniably country - I like it, it’s good !.
With harmonica, acoustic guitar, electric guitar, mandolin and a trace of steel it’s more country than much of the pop/crossover/spillover material on the American Billboard charts and the remixed “ironed out country outings” by Miss Swift and Lady Antebellum for the British ear.

With completely varied dimensions of femininity one would not believe that Lady Gaga and Taylor Swift have been spoken in the same breath, but indeed they have. Regarding online sales in the digital age they have both been trading the title of “most songs sold online” in recent months. In late April the crown switched back to beautiful Tay-Tay, who had reached a tally of 22.5 million sold. Her song ‘You Belong With Me’ has drawn plaudits from Gaga who considers it a great song; in interview she said “Oh my God! When it comes on the radio, I sing it so loud”

So what are the chances of Lady Gaga making a Country Music Awards appearance in November - She may not wear the right style boots, but who knows?
Co-presenter and host Brad Paisley last year even mistook Lady Antebellum for Lady Gaga, joking, "Are you guys gonna wear your meat suits tonight at least?"

We have seen rock gods Bon Jovi grace the CMA’s and this year at the ACM Awards Sugarland’s Jennifer Nettles and R&B/pop goddess Rihanna performed together. Also Aerosmith front man and American Idol judge Steven Tyler teamed up with season four winner Carrie Underwood who wore a short black number with pink streaks in her hair as they rocked out her hit 'Undo It'

A week ago Lady Gaga called in at the London offices of the free daily paper Metro, acting as guest editor-in-chief. After months of intense pre-release hype Lady G wanted to provide her U.K. fan base with a special pre-release taster of the hotly anticipated album BORN THIS WAY by streaming all 14 tracks from the album five days ahead of the official May 23 date. Unfortunately it was spoiled by a record leak.

So what of the country version of Born This Way ?
Produced by Gaga and Fernando Garibay it was released by Interscope Records and has been available as a Digital Download. The bonus track album is currently # 1 of the UK iTunes Chart and charts worldwide.
For those that like the physical product it appears as the first track on Disc 2 on the DELUXE Edition.

Go on country radio, be brave, take a chance, life is boring - why not reach out for a whole new genre of audience and country music fans. Will they give the eccentric singer a spin? Put your paws up and give ‘Born This Way’ a play.
