by BWW News Desk - Oct 25, 2014

Artlightenment, now in its 6th consecutive year, is boasting local talent from painters to sculptors, screenwriters to fashionistas. The festival will showcase underwater photographer Christy Lee Rogers, actress and filmmaker Carla Christina Contreras, celebrity photographer Raeanne Rubenstein, screenwriter Annie Kananack, and fashion designer Elisabeth Donaldson of Monarch Clothing. Each is bringing a unique element to the show and will deliver a special presentation during the festival. Underwater photographer Christy Lee Rogers will deliver a seminar prior to the show titled 'Making a Career as an Artist,' on Nov 13. Rogers' work has been described as, '...undeniably contemporary yet also timeless,' by writer Duncan Beebe for Eyemazing Magazine. Rogers' seminar will be followed by Carla Christina Contreras with her seminar 'Secrets to a Long and Successful Acting Career.' Contreras was born and raised in Hollywood and has been acting since the age of three. On Nov 14, celebrity photographer Raeanne Rubenstein will deliver a talk on 'The Funny Side of Art and Film,' which echoes the central theme of the 2014 Artlightenment showcase. Rubenstein has worked with some of the biggest names in movies, music and pop culture such as Andy Warhol, French director Francois Truffaut and iconic singers Jimi Hendrix and Jim Morrison, among others. Screenwriter Annie Kananack will deliver the workshop 'From Screenplay to Big Screen,' on Nov 15 to encourage future screenwriters. Kananack says, 'I am most alive and fulfilled when I'm writing,' and takes her inspiration from the films of the 30s and 40s which are very character driven. The seminars have been an integral part of the festival since its inception, where successful artists pass on their knowledge to others. Robyn Morshead is founder of the annual art show. An artist and filmmaker herself, she gears the event toward the advancement of every artist and filmmaker who participates or attends. The festival will take place Nov 13 - 15 at the Church of Scientology Celebrity Centre Nashville, 1130 8th Ave S, and all are welcome. For more information, visit artlightenment.com. (more...)

Announcement: GuitarControl.com releases "Acoustic Guitar Lesson on Blues Scale"Announcement: GuitarControl.com releases "Acoustic Guitar Lesson on Blues Scale"
by BWW News Desk - Oct 2, 2014

“The Blues Scale is a Pentatonic Scale with an extra note”, says Johnson. Claude starts off this easy beginner blues guitar lesson by demonstrating the pentatonic scale in the key of A as follows; 5th fret of the 6th string with first finger to the 8th fret with 4th finger to the 5th fret of the 5th string with first finger to the 7th fret with 3rd finger to the 5th fret of the 4th string with first finger to the 7th fret with 3rd finger to the 5th fret of the 3rd string with first finger to the 7th fret with 3rd finger to the 5th fret of the 2nd string with first finger to the 8th fret with 4th finger to the 5th fret of the first string with first finger and to the 8th fret with 4th finger. To make this scale into the blue scale, you simply add the flattened 5th degree of the scale to it. This is done by adding the 6th fret of the 5th string with 2nd finger and 8th fret of the 3rd string with 4th finger. Guitar TAB's are available for this easy blues guitar lesson at GuitarControl.com. (more...)

“When you are learning the guitar you have to learn the basic scales, but you also have to learn different licks and examples so you can see how to put the scales together into a musical phrase”, says Johnson. Claude demonstrates this easy blues lick based in the minor pentatonic scale in the key of A as follows; 8th fret of the first string with 3rd finger to the 5th fret with first finger and then repeat that sequence for the second string, then 7th fret of the 3rd string with 3rd finger and do a half step bend and release and then a pull-off to the 5th fret with first finger and then a hammer-on to the 7th fret of the 4th string with 3rd finger, “this is the first part of the lick”, says Johnson. Claude demonstrates the second part of the lick as follows; 7th fret of the 3rd string with 3rd finger to the 5th fret with first finger and repeat this sequence for the 4th string to the 7th fret of the 5th string with 3rd finger and then slide to the 5th fret to a pull-off to the 3rd fret with first finger and finally a hammer-on to the 5th fret of the 6th string with third finger.

“In the first part of this lesson I taught you the major scale”, says Johnson, “now I want to show you how to make chords out of it”. Claude demonstrates this concept in the key of C, which has no sharps or flats, to make it easier to understand. Claude starts off by demonstrating how to build a major triad by taking the first, third and fifth notes of the major scale and playing them together, which makes a major triad, Johnson continues by explaining that if you simply flatten the third note the triad becomes minor. Claude continues demonstrating other concepts of chord construction and inversions. More information can be found at GuitarControl.com. (more...)
