Rage Against The Machine “Killing In The Name F U I Won’t Do What You Tell Me” Slide Guitar Wayne Sorbelli

Rage Against The Machine “Killing In The Name F U I Won’t Do What You Tell Me”.

Wayne Sorbelli here at my Island Guitar & Ukulele Store in Key West after a great evening of teaching guitar lessons.  Inspired by my last student of today’s sessions, Seje when he asked to learn some Tom Morello riffs!

I just got finished setting up the Floyd Rose locking tremolo system on this Ibanez Steve Vai JEM 555 guitar.  It plays & sounds killer. It’s a great shred guitar but also has the vintage sound available compliments of the Dimarzio pickups!

I’m going through my little portable Roland Micro Cube Amp (see it sitting on top of my keyboard in the video)

Pink Floyd solo on ukulele with beer bottle slide. Wayne Sorbelli @ Island Guitar & Ukulele shop Key West

Pink Floyd solo on my ukulele with a home made beer bottle slide that my dad just made me last night as a gift!

I’m here at my Island Guitar & Ukulele shop on the beautiful island of Key West.

I consider the SLIDE & mainly the glass slide my main instrument. I don’t care what it’s on, guitar, bass, acoustic, electric, ukulele etc. I PLAY SLIDE!  

All slides sound different, not better or worse, but different and they all certainly FEEL and handle much differently once laid upon the strings.  Brass is heavy and offers more resistance therefore it’s easier to accurately stop and not blow by a target note, where glass is lighter and slippery feeling and offers more control over the fine overtones, but it takes more effort to control it – I can write volumes on differences in slide material  – but i guess we will save that for another post)

“You can try to play the blues, or just give in and let the blues play you!  That’s IT!  It’s THAT little struggle, THAT split second tension right there between me and my guitar and those unconscious note choices that are happening when the notes start to play me, to me,  THAT IS THE BLUES”  – Wayne Sorbelli

“Slow Sliding Train #119 – Slide Techniques in Standard Tuning” Wayne Sorbelli here at my Island Guitar & Ukulele Music Shop in Key West

“Slow Sliding Train #119″  Wayne Sorbelli here at my Island Guitar & Ukulele Music Shop in Key West sliding on my Dean Soltero in the Key of F.

I consider the SLIDE & mainly the glass slide my main instrument. I don’t care what it’s on, guitar, bass, acoustic, electric, ukulele etc. I PLAY SLIDE!  

I’m sliding with my pinky 4th finger wearing a glass slide Dunlop 212. (although it’s worth mentioning that any slide will do the job, but all sound different, not better or worse, but different and they all certainly FEEL and handle much differently once laid upon the strings.  Brass is heavy and offers more resistance therefore it’s easier to accurately stop and not blow by a target note, where glass is lighter and slippery feeling and offers more control over the fine overtones, but it takes more effort to control it – I can write volumes on differences in slide material  – but i guess we will save that for another post)

“Play Guitar, Be Happy” Photo by Wayne Sorbelli of Island Guitar & Ukulele Store Key West

One sunny Key West afternoon I had taken a few guitars from my music shop in Key West, an awesome Epiphone Masterbuilt solid wood top acoustic, and an EL-00 parlor size acoustic, some sun screen, a sun hat & my camera and headed for Smather’s Beach which stretches along the south side of the island, butting up against the mighty Atlantic Ocean, 90 miles from Cuba.

I imagined my guitars falling in love on the beach and decided to get a look through my camera’s eye – here is one of the cool images I saw that great Key West afternoon!

 

I consider the SLIDE, Glass, Chrome, Brass, Ceramic, Bone, etc to be my main instrument. Here is Ukulele Slide Blues

I’m using my instrument  for healing – I consider the SLIDE & mainly the glass slide my main instrument. I don’t care what it’s on, guitar, bass, acoustic, electric, ukulele etc. I PLAY SLIDE!  When you put the slide on the strings to me, gives me a voice and I can feel the vibrations literally of what I’m trying to say –  and I think the frequencies tell a story far deeper than I could ever say merely with words – when you hear and listen you either get it, or you don’t at any one moment.

 I know some can feel what  I’m saying as I pour some serious blues crying and screaming out of this little ukulele lol

I recorded this at my music store in Key West jamming some blues in Am using my glass slide finger and Luna Cedar Top Ukulele.

I’m in standard soprano ukulele tuning GCEA.

I didn’t change anything about the uke, it’s a regular setup on an off the shelf Luna Cedar Top ukulele with nylon strings.

I’m sliding with my pinky 4th finger wearing a glass slide Dunlop 212. (although it’s worth mentioning that any slide will do the job, but all sound different, not better or worse, but different and they all certainly FEEL and handle much differently once laid upon the strings.  Brass is heavy and offers more resistance therefore it’s easier to accurately stop and not blow by a target note, where glass is lighter and slippery feeling and offers more control over the fine overtones, but it takes more effort to control it – I can write volumes on differences in slide material  – but i guess we will save that for another post)

Key West Turtle Ukulele SALE Key West & Dallas

This is a Luna “Hono UKE” or Turtle Soprano Ukulele. Island Guitar Key West and Dallas both have them in stock again (sorry to those who tried to order last week – but we can’t keep these solid mahogany turtle ukes from flying off the shelves)

Luna’s HONU Soprano Ukulele takes its design from traditional Hawaiian body ornamentation. The designs were monochromatic, tattooed in black against brown skin. The patterns and layout were strongly geometric and there were many shapes and symbols which represented the natural island world:stones, waves, fish, sharks, turtles, rain, sun, birds. This design is based on a Hawaiian turtle (honu), a symbol of longevity and endurance rendered in a Polynesian tattoo style. The fret markers are stylized sharks teeth.

UKE HONU

Play Uke – Be Happy!

Oh, and did I mention they come with the FREE soft Gig Bag and are on Sale!!

Stayed late after teaching guitar & ukulele lessons @ my Key West Music store to set-up this Les Paul Gibson USA

Wayne Sorbelli setting up vintage Gibson Les Paul @ Island Guitar Shop Key West

Staying late after a nice day of teaching guitar and ukulele lessons at my Key West Music store to set up this awesome Les Paul, made custom new by Gibson USA .

One LUCKY customer is going to be getting this 1971 Gibson Les Paul Sunburst back in a day or two with a few tone tricks added in!! I can’t wait to string it up and test drive it and stretch the strings out on this one. 

This LP had some electrical issues that were more of an old age time/worn issue – this beauty is as good as they get – sound and pliability are top shelf!! – well it is getting up there in age 43 yrs old makes it vintage to me!
