Steel Guitar News

Hello fellow players,

Going along with my last newsletter there are a lot of different reasons for people to play steel guitar also, just there are many different styles and ways to play steel guitar. We all have our favorite styles. Probably the most common is slow and beautiful country E9th.

Playing steel guitar is something that many of us do to derive pleasure from this fabulous instrument. This is why I myself at Steel Guitar Nashville sell so many different learning aids, like tracks, CDs, instructional videos and tab books. This is what makes steel guitar what it is to many folks.

I learned to play by listening to many other players as about all of us have to do in order to stay on the right path. No sense in learning something on our own that no one else will enjoy.

In talking to the greatest professionals in Nashville every week or so I realize that they also study each other very closely. So if they are studying each other, why don’t we all study them to stay on course and keep the style where the majority of listeners are going to get what they expect.

A stylist from the West Coast that I remember being knocked out by is the great Red Rhodes. My first experience with hearing the great Red Rhodes play was on the smash hit tune called Games People Play in the late sixties.

This guy had a very similar tone and execution to the great Ralph Mooney. Red, Ralph, Sneaky Pete, Jay McDonald and Fuzzy Owens along with a few others created what is very well known now as the West Coast style.

Red also had a great sense of humor which was displayed in my first meeting with him. I was playing with the Opry artist Claude Gray and we were booked into Disneyland in Orange County. I was asleep on the bus when we pulled in, but I started waking up when I felt the bus gosling into the parking space.

I heard an unfamiliar voice from outside the bus yell inside, “Hey, ya’ll have a steel player on the bus?”

Claude Gray was driving a 4104 GM coach himself and answered, “Yeah we have one. Just a second and I’ll send him out.”

By the time Claude got back to the bunk to send me out I was already dressed and on my way down the aisle. I walked off the bus and said, “Who’s looking for the steel player?”

A guy walks up and sticks his hands out and I’m looking at him and he says, “Who are you?”

I said “I’m Bobbe Seymour. Who are you?”

He said, “I’m Red Rhodes.”

I then exclaimed, “Well I’ve certainly heard of you and I’m looking forward to talking with you.”

He asked me, “What kind of steel guitar are you playing.”

I answered him by saying, “A Mickey Mouse Emmons.”

He said with a grin, “Oh no. Don’t say that. We’re not allowed to say things like that here in Disneyland.”

That was my first encounter with his great sense of humor. It wasn’t long until we were good friends. I never did realize how renowned he was a steel player until I read his discography. This guy had recorded with everybody and was extremely successful as an L.A. steel guitarist. Anything I’ve ever heard him play on has set a standard of great taste.

Check out his discography by searching for him on google. You’ll find a ton of links.

Red is also known for his work in guitar electronics. I know when I saw him play at Disneyland he was playing through a Fender Deluxe Reverb that he had hot-rodded to put out nearly a hundred watts.

Rumor has it that he started building a custom amplifier that it seems like everybody in L.A. was getting in line to buy. It was called Mesa Boogie. His knack for modifying Fenders also earned him much notoriety.

His personality was what really stuck with me.

I’m hoping everybody had a wonderful Christmas and you’re looking forward to a fabulous New Year.

THE ORIGINAL 7VEN KICK OFF NBA SEASON

THE ORIGINAL 7VEN TEAMS UP WITH FOX SPORTS NET
TO KICK OFF NBA SEASON


“#Trendin” To Be Featured In Televised Games and Recap Coverage

The Original 7venLos Angeles, CA (December 26, 2011) --- Outrageously funky band The Original 7ven, formerly known as The Time, is partnering with Fox Sports Net for the hotly-anticipated new NBA season.  Beginning December 26th, basketball fans will hear the group’s single “#Trendin” throughout televised regional basketball games, alongside highlights and in special productions for approximately three months.  Already a bonafide hit at urban radio, “#Trendin” is the first single off The Original 7ven’s current album, Condensate.

Released October 18th on SRR Records, Condensate debuted in the Top 10 of iTunes’ Soul Albums chart as The Huffington Post awarded the album five stars, noting “Condensate marks a mighty return to the fore for a beloved ensemble that has rightfully earned its own status as music royalty.” The Philadelphia Daily News gave it an “A,” adding “…the set achieves nirvana…” and People magazine bestowed three out of four stars declaring the band “…still cool.”  The Original 7ven stole the show when it opened the Soul Train Awards ceremony last month with an extended performance and appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno in late October. 

Condensate marks the first time the seven musicians have recorded together in over 21 years and comes 30 after their first time they played together in Minneapolis.  The new album delivers the exciting funk/rock/pop that drove the launch of the Minneapolis Sound, infused with a new energy and power.

For additional information on the band, please go to www.TheOriginal7ven.com.

Singer und Songwriter Matty Littly packt 12 Songs der besonderen Art auf sein Album „Steppin Out“. Erfrischend und doch der Tradition mit dem gewissen Etwas im Sound. Die Songs sprühen so von Eigenständigkeit, so dass es eine Freude ist das Album 24 Stunden zu hören.

Die Country Rocker von The BossHoss haben ein neues Album auf den Markt gebracht, dass nach 1 ½ Jahren kreativer Pause alle Erwartungen übertrifft. Breiter, tiefer, schneller, besser. Eigenständig, cool, tanzbar und es brennt sich ein wie ein Brandeisen ins Gehör. Homemade Sound, homemade Brand mit verbesserter Rezeptur – aber zu jeder Sekunde die Marke The BossHoss! Auf ihrem ersten Album „Internashville Urban Hymns“ wollten sie die Größe von Nashville / TN nach Berlin transportieren. Die neuen Stücke sind jetzt eher als „Über-Nashville Urban Hymns“ zu bezeichnen, diesmal geht alles noch viel weiter.


Banjo player Shorty Eager dies

Banjo player Shorty Eager dies 
Former member Jimmy Martin's Sunny Mountain Boys

A Celebration of Life was held Dec. 22 in Cartersville, Ga. for banjo player Edward William "Shorty" Eager. He passed away following an extended illness Dec. 19, 2011 at Cobb Wellstar Hospital in Austell, Ga. He was born Feb. 13, 1941 in Pennsylvania.
Eager was a member of Jimmy Martin’s Sunny Mountain Boys, replacing J.D. Crowe performing alongside IBMA Hall of Fame member Paul Williams and Zeb Collins. He appeared with the group on the Wheeling Jamboree.
He said in a 2006 interview that many of his early musical experiences were gained from his siblings but they led him to the now historic country music concert venue in Sunset Park, Penn.
“They had a show every Sunday,” he said. “I saw the Osbornes, Reno and Smiley, the Louvin Brothers, Wilma Lee and Stoney Cooper, Ola Belle Reed and Alex Campbell — they were the home band. That’s been a long time ago now. I remember getting out in the parking lot and picking with Del McCoury and Jack Cooke.”
That is where he met IBMA Hall of Fame member Jimmy Martin and was invited to join his Sunny Mountain Boys.
He also performed with Grand Ole Opry star Charlie Bailey, Tennessee Bob and the Dixieliners in Kutztown, Penn. on WSAN in Allentown.
He led several bands throughout his musical career, one of those - the Log Cabin Boys he took from Pennsylvania to North Carolina where he performed for four years at Teddy Sutton’s Old Country Store in Maggie Valley.
He also formed Shorty Eager and the Eager Beavers; and Elaine and Shorty – The Grasskats, based in Atlanta, Ga. The latter group was a mainstay on the Southern festival circuit.
Shorty and his wife Elaine were inducted in the Atlanta Country Music Hall of Honor in 2007.
The couple was also among the original founders of the SouthEastern Bluegrass Association (SEBA) formed in 1984.
Elaine and Shorty made two albums during their career together — “Sandbox 1” and “Sandbox 2.”
He is survived by his wife, Elaine Eager; sons, Scott and Steve Eager; daughter, Shelia Dills; step-daughter, Cheryl Newberry; step-sons Mike, Danny and Charlie Newberry; 16 grandchildren; and seven great-grandchildren; sisters, Carol Frankhouser, Lillian "Polly" Messner, Ruby Fryberger; and brother, Melvin Eager.

Hot Banditoz
Heißes Comeback in neuer Besetzung
2004 wurde die Dance Pop Formation HOT BANDITOZ gegründet und erreichte mit ihrer damaligen Debüt Single „VEO VEO“ auf Anhieb Gold Status nachdem ihr Song sich von 0 auf 3 in die deutschen Media Control Charts katapultierte. Seitdem verdanken wir ihnen so manchen Gute-Laune- und Sommerhit. Ob „La Cucaracha Dance“, „Chucu chucu (el tren)“, „Que Si, que no“ oder „Shake Your Balla (1, 2, 3 Alarma)“ – sie lieferten eine hitverdächtige Partynummer nach den anderen und mit ihren temperamentvollen Dance-Performances schafften sie es immer wieder, das Publikum mitzureißen. Das lag nicht zuletzt an der Besetzung des Acts: Die feurige Fernanda, die hübsche Gabriela und heiße Silva waren ein eingespieltes Team.

Nach einer mehrjährigen Pause, in der sich alle Drei eigenen Projekten widmeten, feiern die HOT BANDITOZ 2012 zusammen mit ihrer Plattenfirma Universal Music in neuer Besetzung ihr großes Comeback.

Neben den Gründungsmitgliedern Gabriela und Silva steht jetzt das hübsche Gesangstalent Diba Hakimi auf der Bühne. Sie wurde bei der letzten PRO 7 Staffel von POPSTARS 2010 entdeckt und begeisterte Jury und Publikum bis ins Finale.

Für ihre erste Single „Life Is So Strong“, die am 06. Januar 2012 erscheint, wird derzeit ein Video gedreht.

Die Weltpremiere des Songs findet im Rahmen ihres ersten Auftritts in der neuen Konstellation bei der großen RTLII „Silvesterparty“ (aus St. Anton) statt, nur ein paar Tage später heizen sie dem Publikum der ersten 2012er Ausgabe der „Apres Ski Hits“ ein, die am 7. Januar ebenfalls auf RTLII zu sehen sein wird.

CULCHA CANDELA - beschallen mit ihrer neuen Single "Wildes Ding" das RTL Dschungelcamp
„Wildes Ding“, die neue Single von CULCHA CANDELA aus dem aktuellen Album „FLÄTRATE“- jetzt auch in der RTL - DSCHUNGEL VERSION!

CULCHA CANDELA beeindrucken durch harte Fakten: 2,2 Millionen verkaufte Tonträger, alleine in den letzten fünf Jahren zwei Platinalben, ein Goldalbum, eine Platin- und drei Goldsingles. Und CULCHA CANDELA beeindrucken musikalisch - insbesondere dann, wenn sie ganz in ihrem Element sind, so wie mit ihrer neuen Single „Wildes Ding“: ein Party-Kracher mit Augenzwinkern, eine Hymne an die (starken) Frauen, ein unnachahmlicher Groove, eine Mörder-Hook. Man merkt dem Berliner Sextett den Spaß und die Lockerheit an, mit denen sie solche Hits aus dem Ärmel schütteln. Diese Fähigkeit hat sie zu einer der erfolgreichsten Bands Deutschlands werden lassen – und macht „Wildes Ding“ zu einem absoluten Hitgaranten der Marke Candela.

Parallel zur Albumversion wird es auch eine extra für das RTL- Dschungelcamp umgeschriebene Version des Titels geben: Aus der Rockerbraut wird ein super scharfer Super-Star, die mal „Hintergrundbild auf Deinem Computer war“, das Eso-Hippie Mädchen mutiert zur heißen Amazone und die BWL Studentin wird durch ein D-Promi Model-Luder ersetzt. Ob diese wilden Dinger nun im Tiger Tanga am Dschungellagerfeuer sitzen oder mit großen Buschtrommeln um jede Mahlzeit kämpfen, die Culchas haben auf jeden Fall den perfekten Titel für diese Staffel abgeliefert.

Ob CULCHA CANDELA nun ihr „Wildes Ding“ in Deutschland oder im australischen Dschungel finden, ist eigentlich Jacke wie Hose, denn wie sie selber sagen: „Ich will nur eine mit Herz, Kopf, Arsch und Pepp. Draußen Prinzessin und ein Freak in meinem Bett“.

Ich CULCHA CANDELA – Du Jane !
