Have you ever wanted to know what it might be like to audition for a world famous band? Recently I read the account of American guitarist Ben Levin as he relived his experience of auditioning to be a musician for Lady Gaga on her international arena tour. It’s a fascinating telling of how he prepared for the audition and what he learned during the experience. He writes a great account of things you may be interested to note, if you ever find yourself in a similar position.
“I walked up to the amp, plugged in, and stated in a monotone, ‘Hello my name is Ben Levin and I am going play ‘Summerboy’ by Lady Gaga.’ Then I screamed, ‘ONE!!!!!! TWO!!!!! THREE!!!!! FOUR!!!!!!!!’ and began to play ‘Summerboy’ as if it was a cut off of a Rage Against The Machine record.” Ben writes. Check out the full story on his here, and don’t forget to leave him a comment if you enjoyed his tale. What famous band would dream of playing for?
Many of us wish to play our favourite songs, but where can you find reliable chords and tabs for guitar online? With a little searching you can almost find everything you need and we are here to help. The following short list show some places you can look for the piece of music you want to try to master. Remember that the chords and tabs are not always the original, so you may have to improve on them yourself.
If you are a student of Shine School of Guitar, you can always work on a piece with your teacher. They have years of experience both writing original music and, you can be sure, hunting for tabs to practise for themselves!
