The Official Site of Vince Guaraldi
A Few Words about Dr. Funk By Derrick Bang Like most so-called overnight successes, Vincent Anthony Guaraldi -- who forever described himself as "a reformed boogie-woogie piano player" -- worked hard for his big break. The man eventually dubbed "Dr. Funk" by his compatriots was born in San Francisco on July 17, 1928; he graduated from Lincoln High School and then San Francisco State College. His first serious booking came at the Black Hawk, when he worked as an intermission pianist ... filling in for the legendary Art Tatum. The late 50s were a busy time. Thanks in no small part to the "sound of surprise" from the feisty Guaraldi, whose extended blues riffs literally had the crowd screaming for more, Tjader's quintet received an enthusiastic standing ovation. .National prominence was just around the corner. Fortunately, some enterprising Sacramento, California DJs turned the single over... ...and the rest is history.

In my 25 years of writing piano music, I've arranged over 180 compositions, about 160 of which I've released to the public on CD. A fan who read my advice for pianists article asked if I'd write a similar article for beginning composers. So, I've put together these 12 composition tips for anyone who would like to compose music for the piano. 1) Start With the Melody You don't have to come to the piano with an entire song already in your head before you start composing. 2) What is Your Song About? As you develop your overall melody, think about the emotion or image you want your composition to convey. 3) To Intro or Not to Intro? It is sometimes tempting to write a long introduction (something I'm guilty of) to 'set the mood' for your composition. 4) The Anti-Melody Song? Some compositions are just 'mood' pieces. 5) Follow the Muse t's not uncommon to find that while you're developing a composition, you find yourself taken into an entirely new musical direction. 6) Repeat with Style

BootlegZone: tutti i bootleg di tutti gli artisti in un solo sito
Gli appassionati di musica, e soprattutto i fan di un certo artista, sanno sicuramente a cosa ci si riferisce quando si parla di bootleg. Cioè a quei prodotti musicali che, essendo stati messi in commercio senza l'autorizzazione dei rispettivi titolari dei diritti, violano sì il copyright ma sono allo stesso tempo ricercatissimi perché caratterizzati da tracce e registrazioni sconosciute e mai ufficialmente messe in circolazione. Ebbene, chi è alla ricerca di qualche nuovo materiale audio della propria rockstar preferita, allora deve assolutamente visitare BootlegZone, una vera miniera di informazioni in questo campo. La grafica del sito lascia un po' a desiderare, è vero. Per iniziare la nostra ricerca in questi angusti "scaffali virtuali" di BootlegZone, dobbiamo sfogliare gli artisti selezionandone la lettera iniziale del nome dalla colonna di sinistra. Da notare che una sezione speciale del sito è riservata esclusivamente ai Beatles. Link: BootlegZone

In this section, we go over a few tips for getting started in some of the key areas of the music industry. You’ll find more specialist articles and advice in our Success In Music section.

So, while the old guard whimper and moan about such “problems” as the proliferation of downloading or the low price of cds, forward-thinkers realize that a new and even more exciting music business is waiting to be shaped.
