dave strkyer

When Dave Strkyer was in the ArtistWorks studios to film Video Exchange responses for Chuck, we filmed him doing a few impromtu solo one-take guitar performances. We then took some time to a few questions at him in a candid style interview. Some of the topics include getting to know his musical background and how he got started, major influences and sources of inspiration, as well as his jazz methodology and thoughts on playing jazz and growing as a musician. Check it out in the +Music area!

bluegrass allstars live at rockygrass

Good News: We have some exclusive new videos for anyone in our bluegrass schools. It's the ArtistWorks Bluegrass All Stars performing live at RockyGrass 2016!

The two songs are played back to back: "The Puppy Belly Dance" and "Fox Chase". We also uploaded their performance of "State Line".  There's a fun impromptu dueling guitar portion between Michael Daves and Bryan Sutton in that one, very entertaining! After that Mike Block leads the gang in "Johnny B. Goode".  Next we have their performance of "Chief Sitting in the Rain". For anyone who plays mandolin, Mike Marshall teaches a great version of this in his school. 

We added "I'm Blue, I'm Lonesome", a classic bluegrass tune that Bill Monroe wrote with Hank Williams a long time ago. Michael Daves teaches how to sing both the lead and tenor vocal parts in multiple keys in his intermediate curriculum for those interested in adding this to your jam list. 

Update: we just added another classic. "Way Downtown" is a Doc Watson classic, and it's sung here by Bryan Sutton and Michael Daves in this lively performance. For the fiddlers out there, Darol Anger teaches this tune in his Beginner and Intermediate curriculum. For Mandolin pickers, Mike Marshall teaches this in his Beginner curriculum.

It's called "Climbing in 6ths Exerciseand" and includes play throughs in slow and fast tempos and notation to assist your learning. Find it in the Intermediate section or just click here!
