Private Shows: How Much Does It Cost to Book Your Favorite Band

Here's a wild idea - instead of just carrying a stereo to your backyard, how about you book an actual rockstar for your upcoming backyard BBQ birthday party?

It'll cost ya quite a penny, but c'mon, you could have Josh Homme calling one of your friends a "chickensh-t f--king f-ggot" in your own backyard! He might even threaten to buttf--k him in front of everyone! Now wouldn't that be something.

Anyhow, we'll just go ahead to the juicy bit and list the prices below. Won't be doing much chit-chat, after all this one's all about the prices. Thanks to NME for the info, now on to the list!

Lorde has announced that she will curate the soundtrack for "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1."

As NME reports, the singer will work on the music for the third film adaptation from the best-selling series books. She will also provide the lead single for the soundtrack, which will be released on November 21.

"Curating the soundtrack for such a hotly-anticipated film was a challenge, but I jumped at the chance," Lorde says in a press release. "The cast and story are an inspiration for all musicians participating and, as someone with cinematic leanings, being privy to a different creative process has been a unique experience. I think the soundtrack is definitely going to surprise people."

The soundtracks for the first two "Hunger Games" films features contributions from Arcade Fire, Coldplay, the National, the Decemberists, Taylor Swift, Patti Smith, Kid Cudi, Phantogram and more.

Marten Hagstrom: 'I Picked Up the Guitar and I Was an Obnoxious Little F--k Running Around Making Life Miserable for Everyone'

Meshuggah guitarist Marten Hagstrom is running as fast as he can just to stand still. He has just returned from a series of US dates celebrating the band's 25th anniversary and though he's barely unpacked, he is already back in the group's Stockholm studio working on their next album. The day after this interview he flies to Belgium for the Graspop Metal Meeting, which signals the last show on this current commemorative tour. Upon their return, the band will retreat once again to their Swedish studio to resume work on the upcoming album.

The local music scene is awesome. It's a place where musicians of all different genres and skill levels unite. Where people can get up on the stage and announce what they stand for. It can be a place where a soon to be big band is just starting out, or just where people go to watch their friends perform while forgetting about their outside lives for a while. The music scene is where we can all come together for similar purposes and just enjoy music and all of it's wonders. And yet it is said that the music scene is dying...

There are many reasons why this could be... Some say that it's the lack of originality in bands these days, others blame it on modern technology, whatever it is we've got to come together to help it survive.

Avenged Sevenfold guitarist Synyster Gates held the "Ultimate Master Class Fly Away" recently at the Guitar Center in Hollywood, CA. Teaming up with Guitar Center, Schecter Guitars and Ernie Ball, Gates held a contest whereby would-be participants could download backing tracks from Avenged Sevenfold and then makes videos of themselves accompanying these tracks. Gates listened to all the submissions, chose 10 winners and flew these lucky guitarists to Hollywood to attend the master class. A charming and knowledgeable tutor, Gates walked the attendees - each of whom won a Signature Synyster Gates Schecter - through various scales, arpeggios, picking techniques and dazzled those gathered with some brutal electric guitar playing on his Signature Schecter as well as careening through some gypsy jazz on an acoustic instrument. We caught up with the guitarist following the seminar and talked to him about playing guitar, playing in Avenged Sevenfold and where he finds inspiration.

New U2 Album Still 'Planned for This Year,' Spokesman Denies Delay

A spokesperson for U2 has confirmed that the band's new album is still on course for a 2014 release, despite rumours of delays.

As Gigwise notes, contrary to earlier reports from US website Billboard, a representative has stated that the Irish group are still on course for their original release plans, with an album slated for 2014. Reports stated that the group had delayed both their tour and album, however a spokesperson has now told the Guardian: "U2's album is planned for this year, is still on track and touring plans haven’t been confirmed yet."

"I had struggled with alternate picking for a very long time. I never thought I could do it."
- Paul Gilbert, world-renown guitarist and picking technique expert

Hey it's Johnny,

A word of warning.

I'm about to discuss something that may be disturbing to some people. And share personal details that I've never publicly disclosed before.

But understand this. If this story were not a perfect way to illustrate an extremely important lesson for teaching yourself the guitar, saving yourself time, and cutting down on frustrating mistakes... I would never mention it. Perhaps not even to friends.

Black Crowes Frontman Spits at Woman at 7-Eleven, Steals Beer

The Black Crowes frontman Chris Robinson had his ridiculous run-in with the law after a 1991 Denver concert. Right after the gig, Chris dropped by a local 7-Eleven store to buy beer, but since it was well past midnight the clerk refused to sell any alcohol, triggering the singer's outrage. Making matters worse, a passing fan recognized Robinson. As she told her friend "There's the lead singer for the Black Crowes!" the friend replied with "Who are the Black Crowes?" making Chris quite angry.

After telling the woman to that she'd have heard of his band if she didn't eat so many Twinkies, the singer began spitting at his fan's friend and ultimately stormed out with a case of beer. He later pled guilty to disturbing the peace.

In the midst of false alarms circulating Red Hot Chili Peppers, the band gave a legitimate confirmation about getting ready to hit the studio for a brand new record.

Chatting with Billboard, drummer Chad Smith once again noted that the group won't be performing Led Zeppelin's "Dazed and Confused" at this year's Super Bowl, just to focus on discussing 2011's "I'm With You" follow-up.

"We're gearing up to start writing again," the drummer kicked off. "We've always got ideas bouncing, but until the four of us get in the room together, that's when you see how it really takes shape. We're just starting out now, just getting together.

MTV Unplugged - Live In Athens Review

After releasing a staggering seventeen studio albums, Scorpions' embarked on a final farewell tour (which was thankfully later discarded), and with a new album of newly recorded material on the horizon it appears the best may be yet to come from this iconic rock group. In the meantime, what we have is a new live album, titled "MTV Unplugged - Live in Athens," which should be more than enough to appease the appetites of dedicated fans. While the news of another Scorpions live album may not sound too exciting to those established followers, as "MTV Unplugged" marks the band's sixth live release overall, you can trust when I say there are plenty of surprises waiting the listener after you first press play.

Live at Brixton Review

Sound: With five albums under their belt - and their latest, "The Hunter," being the most commercially successful one - Mastodon is a household name in metal music. Back in 2011, the band released their first live album, "Live at the Aragon," which was in support of their most recent studio album at the time, "Crack the Skye." Mastodon does that same formula once again with their new live album, "Live at Brixton," being a release in complement of their 2011 studio album, "The Hunter." This, of course, means that nearly half of the songs in the set are from the latest studio album, but there are plenty of classics in there as well.

Ear Training and Learning Theory

author: Cthulhu3421
date: 01/07/2014
category: for beginners

Growing up playing guitar I didn't have the patience to sit down and learn theory. It took years before I actually understood how music works on a technical basis and surprisingly enough it didn't take long at all when I actually took the time to understand it. Nevertheless I still played to the best of my ability up until that point and since I didn't know technically what I was doing I had to rely on my "ears" alone.

I put "ears" in snarky quotations because it's really a combination of listening to the music while your own "inner voice" speaks out along with what’s being played. Groovy sh-t.

Symmetrical Patterns for Lead Guitar

While most people spend hours and hours a day memorizing scales and every box pattern, not to mention ways to break out of those box patterns, there are very simple things they could do to make simple licks more exciting. One of those methods is using symmetrical runs. They are easy to do and are great at making you sound more "outside" of the box.

Symmetrical runs basically mean that the frets you play on one string you must play on all six strings, as opposed to the notes. Here's an example, these two similar to two Dimebag used to use.

e|----------------------------------------------- 11-12-15--|
B|--------------------------------------11-12-15- ----------|
G|-----------------------------11-12-15---------- ----------|
D|--------------------11-12-15------------------- ----------|

MA-1 Metronome Review

date: 01/10/2014

Features: This is the first stand-alone metronome that I've owned after a couple of years of playing guitar. I always understood the benefits of playing in time while practicing. I just never actually had the thought of getting a metronome. So, when I finally got this one delivered, it pretty much blew away my expectations. I was expecting a tuner-sized box that could click to a certain BPM and could be adjusted with "increase" and "decrease" buttons.

What I really found was a plethora of useful features. The time signature can be adjusted from 2/4 to 9/4 (there is also an option to use no time signature). The rhythm can be switched between quarter notes, eighth notes, sixteenth notes, triplets, shuffle feel, and more. The BPM can be adjusted from 45-200 and there is an option to use tap tempo, though I felt that this feature wasn't too accurate in figuring out the tempo I was tapping.
