5th December 2011

Vinnie heads home for a well earned rest, having been on-the road with UFO from September

then straight into the studio to record the new UFO album, 'Seven Deadly' and back on the road

for the solo European tour. Prior to all this, UFO toured the East coast (USA) before touring Germany

in the Summer cumulating at HellFest in France.

A solo appearnce at the Iridium in New York and recorded two episodes of 'That Metal Show'

on the West Coast makes this year one of the busiest ever. The UFO album was written during the year

so all and all a very busy time for VM.

The madness will start again in late February 2012 as the band kick of the tour on the 'Monsters of Rock Cruise'

to co-incide with their planned album release.

Vinnie Home to Italy = 7,707 km (4789 miles) - Tour distance from Italy to Madrid = 9,283 km (5,768 miles)

Madrid - Home = 6,953 km (4,321 miles) - TOTAL 14,000 miles approx

GUITAR WORLD - LICK OF THE DAY

Guitar World post their 'Lick of The Day' yesterday on Youtube and it has already had over 5,000 hits

 

Great for VM fans as its from the latest solo album 'To The core'' - one of my favourites, 'Off The Hook'.

It's a funky-sounding, Jimi Hendrix-inspired riff that features strummed octaves, double-stops,
pull-offs, subtle bends and fret-hand muting.

When playing through the lick's funky, syncopated rhythms,
Vinnie uses a pick-hand technique called "16th-note pendulum strumming." Pendulum strumming involves maintaining
a constant down-up-down-up strumming or picking motion regardless of whether or not every 16th-note rhythm is played.
As you can observe in the picking prompts, any chord or note that falls on the first or third 16th note (including eighth notes)
receives a downstroke, while any note falling on the second or fourth 16th note is played with an upstroke.

For rhythmic durations longer than a 16th note let the pick hand pass over the strings without touching them,
effectively producing a silent "ghost" strum while the previous note(s) continues to ring.

The bends are all performed by pulling the strings in toward the palm slightly.

The tempo is 115 beats per minute, 90 for slow practice.

TODAY: Dean Guitars publish a press release:

DEAN GUITARS AND THE IRIDIUM PRESENT AN EXCLUSIVE SOLO PERFORMANCE
BY Virtuoso Guitarist VINNIE MOORE!

Virtuoso guitarist VINNIE MOORE will treat New York City to a rare solo performance on July 25th at the esteemed IRIDIUM. Moore will be joined by bassist JOHN "JD" DeSERVIO of BLACK LABEL SOCIETY, MIKE DiMEO of RIOT (vocals, keys) and drummer RICHIE MONICA of TANTRIC. The LES PAUL TRIO will open the show.

Vinnie Moore has established a legion of loyal fans for his extensive work as a solo artist and as guitarist with esteemed acts such as UFO and ALICE COOPER. Vinnie is a musical innovator known for his progressive neo-classical guitar style. His diverse musical influences including Latin, jazz, rock and blues are all found within his stunning signature sound and melodic songwriting.

Vinnie's career took flight in 1987 when his breakout debut album, 'Mind's Eye' sold over 100,000 copies. Vinnie was quickly heralded "best new talent" in Guitar Player, Guitar and Guitar World magazines. Vinnie's latest CD "To The Core" was released in May 2009 and has received critical acclaim worldwide.

In 2003, Vinnie joined the legendary group UFO (Phil Mogg, vocals; Pete Way, bass; Jason Bonham, drums; Paul Raymond, keyboards). The band has since toured the UK, Europe and USA and released several very well-received CDs and DVDs.

Vinnie is a Dean Guitars endorsed artist and has an impressive line of high-end signature Dean guitar models. He has conducted hundreds of guitar clinics around the world including the U.S., Japan, Scandinavia, Italy, Poland, Mexico, Canada, New Zealand, England, Germany and Australia and has released two instructional videos on the HotLicks® label.

On doing clinics: "I like talking to the fans firsthand and learning from them. It's insightful to hear what they like about what I'm doing, and what they think about the guitar genre…and the whole music scene in general. I definitely feed off of their energy. It's cool to be part of a global guitar community, and it's an honor to know that I can sometimes inspire others to get excited by music and guitar. It always amazes me to me to hear that I have touched someone else by doing something that I love doing so much. I consider it a gift to be playing guitar and writing songs, and feel like one of the luckiest cats in the world to have fans."

VINNIE MOORE AT THE IRIDIUM, JULY 25th sponsored by DEAN GUITARS, GUITAR WORLD and LIVESTREAM as part of Les Paul Tribute Mondays at the Iridium.

Vinnie was the first invited guest of the RMA, 8 years ago, in 2003 and has been asked
asked back for a Master Class (2:30pm) and Clinic (7:30pm)

Here is the Official Press Release:

VINNIE MOORE
MASTER CLASS & CLINIC
APRIL 9th, 2011

The RMA is proud to welcome the world renowned Vinnie Moore for a Master Class and clinic on April 9th, 2011. During his Master Class beginning at 2:30 pm, students will have the opportunity to receive direct instruction and interaction. In a class like this, you can gain all kinds of new ideas and perspective by learning from Vinnie's approach to playing guitar. It's an opportunity that is rare and valuable to those able to participate and there's a chance you'll be able to jam with Vinnie on stage.

His evening clinic at 7:30 pm is where Vinnie will perform and take questions from the crowd about his playing, his touring and his musical experience. This is an inspirational evening of music you will not want to miss. Vinnie is considered one of the top players in the world and his playing is sure to ignite a fire in all guitarists.

As a performer, Vinnie Moore's resume is impressive. A member of Alice Cooper's band, he toured the U.S. on the Operation Rock'N'Roll tour, and also performed on Alice's album Hey Stoopid. Vinnie's own band has toured extensively as a headliner and also was chosen as opening act for legendary rockers Rush on the Northeast leg of their Roll The Bones Tour. Vinnie also toured Japan as a member of the T.M. Stevens' band, which included Bernie Worrell (Parliament Funkadelic) on keyboards, Wil Calhoun (Living Color) on drums, and Al Pitrelli (Megadeth) on guitar.

Vinnie has done hundreds of guitar clinics all over the world including such places as, Japan, Scandanavia, Italy, Poland, Mexico, Canada, New Zealand, England, Germany and Australia.

In 2003, Vinnie joined the legendary group UFO and is still currently with the band.

Please note: Those who attend both the Master Class and clinic will be entered in the drawing for the Xotic Effects pedal and Port City Sahana Boost pedal giveaways.
