weekly blog

hey guys, this is my weekly blog. lately i have been practicing the classical guitar a whole bunch to get ready for friday. i was up until 2:00 last night playing. i would have to say i played the guitar for about 6 hrs. yesterday. sunday morning the pice that i played was call allegro bwv 998 "eggroll" by johann sebastian bach. in classical music is categorized by when it was published and it gets an opus number (op. 474).  if a song was written in 1770 and published in 1780 and then another song was written in 1775 and published in 1777 the second song would have the lower op. number. now bach wrote so much music that the classical music historians gave him his own category that was bwv which means Bach-Werke-Verzeichnis or (Bach Works Catalogue). Also Just a remider my recital is this friday Jan 25th @ 5:00 at the recital hall in the fletcher music building. If you can find the BCM it is 2 stoplight past that and on your left. also here is another taste of what i will play. It is call Preludio from the suite del plata. 

the songs this week will be: 

Your Grace is enough (Chris Tomlin)
Everyday (Lincoln Brewster version)
You never let go (Matt Redman)
Amazed (Lincoln Brewster Version)
Sing to the King (Candi Pearson)

Pedal Blogs Line 6 DL4

if i had to pick one pedal out of my whole board it would be this one. it is called a line 6 DL4.  it is a delay/looper pedal. this is one of the most popular delay pedals being used right now. you can see a lot of professionals using them as well as Randy, Marcus and I. The first video will show one of the basic delays that use on sunday morning (stereo delay, one amp plays 8th notes and the other amp plays quarter note triplets) and the second video will demonstrate how the looping function is used.                                                                                          Also just to let you know the fancy thing that i have in my hand durning the looping is called and Ebow (electronic bow) it vibrates the string for me and makes cool sounds, kind of like a keyboard or as synth, but using the guitar. There can be a demo for that as well if you want it. i hope this helps you understand one of my pedals a little bit more. let me know if there are any questions and look forward to more reviews.
