GO TO: www.andrewwasson.com Andrew Wasson of Creative Guitar Studio answers a viewers question… Q: My guitar studies this year, (of freestyle folk and folk jazz along with guitar players like Stefan Grossman, John Renbourn and Duck Baker), have introduced me to the great sounds of the 11th and 13th chords. I haven’t got too much experience with these chords, and I was wondering if you’d perhaps consider doing a basic video about them. Thanks for all of your hard work you do for the guitar players following you on YouTube. And, thanks for reading my question. Charles — San Anselmo, CA. A: The 11th and 13th chords are part of a category of chord known as extended chords. The use of these chords can really offer color to a progression, making even the simplest of chord progressions sound anywhere from having a lot more presence around the tonal range of the harmony, to sometimes even a downright startling effect upon their appearance in a piece of music, (depending upon how and where the chords get placed). In this video lesson I will move through a number of ideas with 11th & 13th chords, and give you a good concept of how these chords have a natural tendency to resolve progressions in some very interesting and colorful ways. The complete lesson article for this video will be available on the Creative Guitar Studio website shortly …

Behind the Music: The Making of a Paul Reed Smith Guitar

| July 25, 2011 | 0 Comments

Latin-rock musician Carlos Santana … and jazz great Al Di Meola play different kinds of music. But they both use guitars from the same manufacturer: Paul Reed Smith. PAUL REED SMITH: “I started building guitars in wood shop in high school and in my brother’s bedroom and in my bedroom. And I would rent equipment.” Today, Paul Reed Smith builds his guitars at a factory in Maryland. PAUL REED SMITH: “We are selling a lot of these blue sunburst guitars … they are going very, very well for us.” His company, PRS Guitars, now has 260 employees.

Paul Reed Smith says he tries to make the best instruments possible. PAUL REED SMITH: “We have been asked the question a lot about what, why the guitars are different, and I’ve come to the conclusion [that] it’s a very complicated long list of attention, attention to detail.” That detail is clear in the built-to-order Private Stock guitar line. JACK HIGGINBOTHAM: “We have maple tops, we’ve got mahogany necks …” Jack Higginbotham is the president of PRS Guitars. JACK HIGGINBOTHAM: “Nice piece of mahogany. Nice ring to it.” PRS buys woods from around the world. Its guitars are known for their curly maple tops.
