Joe Deninzon: Plugged In-A Guide to Gear and New Techniques for the 21st Century Violinist

July 27, 2012

By George W. Harris

While guitarists have been comfortably plugged in to their amplifiers since the Swing Era, violinists have generally been less ambitious to explore the sonic potential of “going electric.” This booklet and cd/dvd goes a long way to introduce the curious violinist to the new world of sounds and styles.

Joe Deninzon goes through everything you’ll want to know about this niche, from the history to finding an amp as well as scales, chords, patterns and jams. The book has a plethora of licks and etudes to help you get the feel of the style, while the cd and dvd are user friendly workshops that will get you through a lot of initial questions, saving tons of time, energy and discouragement.
