Melodic Blues Soloing Papastache Tim Pierce Guitar Lesson

Melodic Blues Soloing Guitar Lesson

Melodic Blues Soloing Guitar Lesson is a free online guitar lesson where I show how to play various melodic guitar ideas. Brett Papa did some filming the other day at my studio and made this Melodic Blues Soloing video. First he filmed a great song that Warren Huart produced and was written by Scott James. Warren is awesome and he comes over a lot to do guitar overdubs at my studio. After that I found a another nice track on my hard drive and just played melodically over the whole thing. On the first song I am careful to work around the vocal and it is more of a jazz blues sort of thing. The second song is just fun in the style that is probably the closest to my heart, which is a clean-ish Sustained Sound and Melody based Soloing. Hope you enjoy these videos as much as we enjoy making them !!!

Warren Huart interview

One of my favorite people to work with is a Producer, Engineer and Guitarist named Warren Huart. Warren Huart is an incredible incredibly hard-working musician who owns several studios, and is constantly producing and writing music. I really love seeing Warren pick up a guitar. His hands flow effortlessly over the instrument, and I’m always honored when he asks me to play guitar for him. Recently, I was able to grab Warren and interview him, after a short session we did in my studio. I had wanted to ask him some questions about a project he completed not too long ago – Aerosmith‘s new album. His longtime friend Jack Douglas Produced the record and Warren Engineered and Mixed the entire project. Aerosmith records have always been, to me, some of the most amazing records ever made, with some of the best guitar tones and parts ever recorded. I had many questions for him, and one thing I was surprised to learn, was that they start every new guitar sound from scratch. Even if the last guitar sound was great, they start over with different guitars, amps, microphones, preamps, etc. Just Google Warren Huart to find out all the  interesting things he is done, and continues to do. Recently he’s been doing songs for the new season of X factor. One of his studios is a great facility in Hollywood called Swing House. He also owns a killer mix and recording studio up in the Hollywood Hills.

Warren Huart Session

Warren Huart session. Here’s an overdub session with Warren Huart. Warren is a busy producer, engineer, songwriter, guitarist. He has a huge list of credits and notably just finished engineering Aerosmith’s new record. We are overdubbing for a song for Danni Rosner, a talented new country artist. Warren is a fine guitarist so I am always honored to be asked to play for him. We worked very quickly and I am only allowed to do a few takes, sometimes only one or two. With country music I try to keep the tones on the clean side, the trick is to get enough sustain out of a clean tone. I usually search for that one sweet spot where it’s about to bring into too much distortion but still sounds clean when playing a single note. It might be described as your favorite spot on the volume knob on the amp at about 5 or 6. The only effect I generally use is a little bit of delay between the mic pre and Pro Tools. It’s best if the delay is barely heard and if the actual delay trail is barely heard and disappears into the music. I was using my Tele made by Michael Tuttle – check out his guitars on his website. On these songs In also used the Carl Martin TremO’Vibe pedal. It’s my primary vibrato and tremolo pedal here in my studio.
