Hip-Hop Artist and Songwriter, Wordsmith, Launches Indiegogo Campaign for First Studio-Produced Album

March 3rd, 2015

Baltimore, MD (PRWEB) February 24, 2015

Hip-hop artist and songwriter, Wordsmith, launched a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo today, February 24, 2015. The independent artists initial goal is to raise $ 1,500 to record a six- to eight-track EP that will include a radio single and is professionally produced. Stretch goals will include funding for digital distribution, record promotion, and a country-wide tour.

Following Wordsmiths crowdfunding campaign, he will be taking off on an international tour of Southwest Asia to perform for American troops. The 21-day tour is organized by Armed Forces Entertainment, the official Department of Defense agency for providing entertainment to U.S. military personnel overseas. The agency regularly recruits performing artists to have the honor of supporting soldiers, airmen, marines and sailors by bringing them the very best in American entertainment.

Its a great honor to be asked to use my talents to support our troops, Wordsmith said. My passion is writing hip-hop music that inspires people to be great and chase their dreams. I cant wait to bring this music with a message to some of the most deserving people in America- our troops.

Wordsmiths band, The Big Band Theory, will accompany him on his tour. The Big Band Theory consists of a bass guitar, electric guitar, drums and two female vocalists. Wordsmith uses this unique sound to grow his cross-genre appeal and appeal to an even wider and more diverse audience.

Wordsmith and The Big Band Theory have toured throughout his career with stops in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Atlanta, Houston, Las Vegas and overseas in London, England. He has both lectured and performed at various music conferences around the country, including SXSW, A3C, Mid Atlantic Music, Millennium Music, Launch and more.

Wordsmiths Indiegogo campaign is live beginning today, February 24, 2015 and will run for 35 days, until March 30. A contribution of just $ 8 will earn backers a digital download of Wordsmiths new studio album. Other perk options range from music lessons from Wordsmith himself to a full-length hip-hop show from Wordsmith and the Big Band Theory.

New amp?

March 3rd, 2015

Posted by nickgibian in Electric Guitar – I would’ve put this in the amp section but there are more people here. I have a Vox AD50-VT. This is not a typical vox, as it is designed for more hard-rock/metal players. Also, it is not all tube, only the pre amp is. I’m NOT a hard rock kinda guy. I didn’t know much about tone when I bought this (I was just a beginner) but now I’m interested in an all tube amp that can produce a great sounding clean tone that might have some drive options, but only for a blues-type sound. I don’t need, nor do I want, an amp that has loads of effects on it. I can get exactly the effects I want, and with higher quality, with pedals, and even then I don’t use effects much. I just want an amp that has(preferably) just has two channels: one clean and one distorted, with obvious adjusting controls on either one. I’m thinking a fender reverb, anyone else got any suggestions?

Posted by Knucklehead in Acoustic Guitar – Got this from a buddy of mine named Scott Summers. He told me not to tell anyone, but you know me. Anyway, if you get these, don’t ever take them out of your guitar, or bad things will happen. And if you use them with a whammy bar pedal on 11, the Secretary will disavow any knowledge of your actions. Hope this hleps.

Last time I checked, a steel (lap or pedal) is a guitar so your trick question doesn’t quite work. I was getting intrigued for a while when you kept saying no to everyone saying Stringmaster.

Ever write your autobiography?

February 28th, 2015

My kids, when I’m putting them to bed, ask me to tell them a story about when I was their age – after a few stories I’m kind of amazed how few I remember – well the stories I can tell them. And, I’m only 44.

I can’t really tell them about some stuff I would rather not give them an excuse to try the same things – for some reason that’s the stuff I remember.

Reasonable Price for ASAT Classic

February 28th, 2015

I got my USA ASAT Bluesboy for $800.00 I think I got a good deal because it was in really nice shape with a G&L hardshell case. Mine does not say “Bluesboy” on the headstock. Not sure if the new ones say Bluesboy or not. The Tribute models do have a Bluesboy decal. Also, the new USA and Tribute model Bluesboy’s do not have the Seth Lover pickup. It sounds like the one you are looking at is older, so if it is a Bluesboy in original condition, it should have the Seth Lover. I highly recommend these guitars… I love mine.

Keth quote

Quote:
  _____  

At that time, there were a few black musicians that were kind of PO’d at the Stones for lifting their music and making a bundle off of it. Bo Diddley was another one.
  _____  

oh, sorry, I just couldn’t let this bit go by. Chuck, Bo, Wolf, Muddy and the rest might have been PO’d at the Music Business and the World’s taste in music. But the Rolling Stones made them more money from royalties than they could have ever dreamed of! AND rejuvenated their flagging careers, which had washed up because nobody in the USA outside of the chitlin-blues-circuit was interested anymore.

Sorry, but I can’t let this sort of revisionist history go unchallenged. If the Stones (and other brilliant UK blues-fan groups) hadn’t brought about a revival of interest in the roots and origins of USA blues and electric-blues, how big a career do you think someone like Bo Diddley would have had? The mainstream USA media had already decided to – and sucessfully – quashed the “race record” influence on the “pop charts”.

Go back and check the Top 100 charts around 1964… see how much Chuck, Bo, Wolf, and Muddy were selling. Oh – what happened to Elvis? Where’s Gene and Buddy? Jerry Lee is done for, Little Richard is beaten… but Pat Boone is selling like crazy!

Which telecaster?

February 26th, 2015

i say go for the CV 50′s squier. unless someone is standing right next to it they would just assume it’s a fender by the looks and quality. and im not sure where you read that some classic vibes need fretwork, but they have the best fretwork i’ve ever seen, hands down. to buy comparable quality you’d pay as much for just a USA fender neck as the whole squier. ultimately it’s your decision, but don’t think that the classic vibe squier is a bad decision just because of the brand name and country of origin. they call it the poor man’s classic player 50′s which is known as the poor man’s 52 RI. however, i prefer to think of the classic vibe as the economically minded player’s 50′s tele.

I know this was sarcasm and all, but seriously – with all the discussion about woods and finishes on guitars and how it affects the sound, why aren’t there more arguments about amp cabinets? Wouldn’t it make as much (or, more correctly, as little) difference? The guitar body and amp cabinet are both just structures that hold the actual components that reproduce sound (being pickups and speakers, respectively)…

Tele “”less forgiving”"?

February 25th, 2015

A well set up Tele is a very player-friendly thing.

I have an American Series Strat and a AV 52 Tele, setup comparably. I love them both and keep both for their differences. The Tele always feels easier to me and so my playing is more assured, I try more things on it. That’s why it’s my main guitar. The Strat comes out when I need it’s voices and I always know I’m going to have to work a little harder with it.

Printed circuit board failure : Anyone ? Ever ?

February 25th, 2015

To get real-world advice, has anyone had, or known anyone who’s had either trouble or amp failure because of printed circuit board in an amp ?

I keep seeing Fender re-issues on CL and , because the economy is sooooo bad around here, some of them are going for stupid little money.

But then I’ll say “Ah – no way, those aren’t point to point, it’s too risky.”

My real-world experience with this is my buddy’s $700 Carvin acoustic amp w/ a million bells and whistles developing cracks or fissures in the solder and the whole thing being junked.

I don’t know if that’s a Carvin thing or not.

BTW – my 3 amps are 6 watt early 50′s “Champ-type”, a Fender GDec 30 (basically given to me), and an 18 watt 59 Valco w/ the luscious 6973′s.

What’s The Smallest Amp You Gig With?

DR is a must-have to compliment any drummer in any venue…period.

guitaramp Whats The Smallest Amp You Gig With?

It is by far the best for your styles (country-folksy-bluesy rock) and at high octane. It will usually require no pedals (guitar-cable-amp) and has reverb and tremelo on board – which will suffice for most.

If you are playing in a crowded house, you can get their attention for sure. Turn down on your rhythm and power chords, and turn up on leads. With a telecaster, its easy.

If you are in a pin-drop house (meaning the bartender, girlfriend of the drummer, and one drunk in the back) or your stage real estate is tight, you’ll want to turn down, and maybe even turn the amp backwards, this forces the main benefit of the speakers up and it diffuses a little. Some folks put their amp cover right in front, so they can still get the heat from the tubes.

For the most quiet times, I like to use a bluesberry.

I am kind of leaning toward the lacquer since I have done the body that way and I don’t want my maple fret board fussed up.

I am tempted to try wipe on poly (hold the flames, please). But I figure if the Nitro doesn’t work out I can remove it – the poly, not so much.

Vibroverb ’59 – Can it be built by novice?

February 22nd, 2015

If this amp was built in 1959 and it had a single 15″ speaker then it was a Vibrosonic. Cut your teeth on something a little easier first. The Vibrosonic has a fairly complex vibrato circuit that I wouldn’t recommend to the novice builder. Build one of the simple tweeds like the champ, princeton, or deluxe. You can always sell it on ebay for near what you have in it if you do a good job. Then over time work your way up to the Vibrosonic. I believe when the time comes weber might even have a kit for the Vibrosonic.
