On June 5th 2014 at 6:30 pacific standard time, GoDpsMusic will be hosting another free MAB clinic. You can view it online and be sure to sign up for their giveaways as well. I can't say enough good things about GoDpsMusic. Great staff... good people and the chats during the clinics are always great. You can also ask questions. MAB's last clinic was amazing! Truly looking forward to this one as well Hope to see you all there I will be Eric Liefson in there... give me a shout if you make it They will also have special pricing on Dean guitars that day
I almost forgot! I jumped in a little after halfway through, I just started watching some of the earlier parts now that its over. Man that was cool! The link should still work to watch a replay of the stream, hopefully they'll post this one on youtube too!
Yeah, that clinic was definitely awesome Learned some new things. MAB was definitely on a roll/fire last night.. I truly enjoyed it. Was really cool to see Maxxxwell there and watch him tear it up with MAB... Awesome job Maxxx I knew he was there... caught a glimpse of his hair at the very beginning and I was all Maxxx He has gotta jam with MAB at some point, lol! Very cool clinic :)Definitely gonna re watch it when I have some extra time... it was an excellent show
Congratulations Michael! You deliver the best clinics of any musician I know of! You keep getting better and better on the mic - not singing but in you're public speaking ability and the way you tell stories. Somebody asked how to practice the under-over technique and before you actually gave him the answer you talked for probably 10 minutes at least about Ritchie Blackmore, Beavis and Butthead, Britney Spears, Jimi Hendrix, Roundabout by Yes, you took all these seeming disparate topics and then somehow tied them all together in a fascinating portion of the clinic! You say you "go off on tangents" but the way you wrap all the tangents together is what made the clinic so unique and fascinating. You just keep getting better and better at speaking at clinics!
I found it very interesting that you would like to play guitar with Al Dimeola because I see some similarities in the writing style of some songs of yours such as , say, Hands Without Shadows, and the writing style Al used circa Elegant Gypsy. The way you go from heavy and loud parts to quiet, more jazzy parts and make it all fit together is very interesting, I would certainly love to hear an album of you and Al Dimeola or see a concert of the two of you. Songs like Race With The Devil On A Spanish Highway or Flight Over Rio or Midnight Tango definitely have something in common with your compositional style. This could be an incredible blend of styles - to hear what you and Al could compose together and then hear it performed is something I would definitely be interested in hearing!!!
