Jimmy Bruno Guitar Workshop

Long-time Sadowsky endorser, Jimmy Bruno, a jazz guitar phenomenon with over 40 years of recording, touring, and teaching experience, is set to open his new online teaching website on March 25, 2011.

The new Jimmy Bruno Guitar Workshop (JBGW) increases students’ abilities to progressively customize their own coursework using a newly-designed, integrated series of lessons. 

“I’ve seen way too many jazz guitar players get so hung up in the theory that they become paralyzed by it and can’t play. They forget that music is sound; it’s not a bunch of rules.

Using my method, students learn to make melodies that go through the chords rather than over them.

They learn to play music!”

Jimmy Bruno

April 2009
I was thrilled to see Jason Newsted perform with Metallica at the 2009 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Awards.

Reuters News reported:  Newsted is shipping in the amplifier rig he used during his tenure in Metallica, as well as the Sadowsky five-string bass that he notes "has played more songs for Metallica than any other bass instrument in the world." The group plans a sound check/rehearsal for Friday night, then will play "something old (and) something new" on Saturday—though both songs will be from Newsted's tenure with the band. "One louder than the next—that's all I know," he said with a laugh.

I am honored by Jason's comments and very proud of our association with him.

Chuck Loeb releases "Presence."
“Nowadays, there’s a lot of music that gets created in a laboratory,” says Loeb, who enlisted musicians various incarnations of his live band to craft the album. “We all have computers, and we do things long distance. But it never ceases to amaze me how, as soon as you put the live musicians into the equation, it’s their presence that brings the thing to life. That’s the idea behind the album title – the effect that an individual’s personality has on the music, both in the context of a recording and in a live setting." | Read More
