WHAT ARE WE UP TO Lately?
We're currently working on a few projects.
- Our Super Beginner Bass ebook is nearing completion of its first draft.
- We've more video tutorials to shoot and more royalty free music to record.
- In the midst of that we need to repair a guitar!
Our favourite acoustic guitar gave way recently. Rather than take it straight to the guitar shop we took up the challenge, did research and decided to give fixing the acoustic guitar a shot for ourselves! What will the end result be? We'll let you know. We stuck a camera inside so we weren't poking around blindly. Here's a cool screenshot from that footage. We just love the wood textures, lines and curves on this image. This is not a cheap acoustic and we've had it for 25 years. In the image you can see the cutaway (on the right), the truss rod entry point (middle top) and the tone/volume unit (left). What we were looking for is where the braces are to get the clamping right on a new bridge. Read more.

OUR LATEST ROYALTY FREE MUSIC TRACK
Super Rock School are happy to supply royalty free music tracks at great prices. It's true, music tracks can be very expensive and time-consuming to produce. That's why so many other sites charge higher prices. Here at Super Rock School we want to be able to cheaply provide original music as a resource for students, independent game developers and film makers, community broadcasting and similar. If your project is commercial, that's fine too. You can all take advantage of our extremely low priced royalty free music tracks. To hear samples visit the AUDIO section in the top menu and purchase from our CATALOG.
Here's a sample of our latest track. It's a retro electronica track with a heavy, grinding feel. Perfect for something urban, industrial or sci-fi.
How do I write a song in G Major?
If you start writing a song with a G Major chord what other chords do you use? Have you been wondering that? Watch our video as it takes you through the theory of how chords in the key of G Major are built. Then try out our fun activity and see if you can work out which chords are used for some common chord progression in that key. You can take a look at the score and tablature by finding this lesson in our Musician's Den.
What is a relative minor?
If you play music chances are you've heard about a 'Relative Minor'. What is a relative minor and how do you use it? Each Major chord has a minor chord that relates to it note-wise. So, you can get tricky in music and play the minor chord instead of the Major chord in the right circumstances. It's a great way to expand your melodies, harmonies and solo playing. Watch our video for a full explanation.
Awesome free Music Tips
Usually we create a complete blog entry for our free music tips. It's called the Musician's Den on this site. Our latest entry is about expanding your pentatonic scales to get out of the rut of only using box shapes. Whilst it's many for guitarists bass players will get some great ideas because those bottom four strings are the same, right? Plus there's a few tricks in there that other instrumentalists like pianists, sax players or flutists can apply too! Learn more.
