Learn to Play The Guitar While Singing!

Are you an exceptional guitarist with a great voice but can’t understand how to coordinate them both at the same time? No matter how many times you try you’re out of time, out of breath, and it feels as if your head is going to explode from the excessive multitasking. I agree this is an extremely difficult task that is made look effortless by artists like Claudio Sanchez (Coheed and Cambria), Johnny Rzeznik (Goo Goo Dolls), Dave Matthews (Dave Matthew’s Band), and countless others.

I may be able to help. I got started singing and accompanying myself with the guitar at 9 years olds. My teacher was my uncle, John Montoya. He is a great guitarist, has an amazing voice, and can sing while playing just about anything. Being only nine years of age, I automatically thought that anything I learned to play I also had to learn to sing while I was playing it. That way I’d be cool like Uncle John, right? (laughs) That’s how I got started. Later in life I attended a class at the Musicians Institute on playing and singing very rhythmically complicated songs taught by Dale Turner. This is what refined my skills at this art form. To learn the steps to developing guitar/vocal rhythmic independence, similar to what I learned in his class, check out this link, http://www.shellshocklullaby.com/#!Playing-Guitar-While-Singing-Part-1/c1g54/3.

New EP!!!

We just finished all of the tracking for our next EP and its sounding awesome!! If you liked the first one even a little, you'll love this. We've working with producer Tyler Monks and Scot Alexander, bassist for Dishwalla, on writing and recording the songs in Lehi, UT for the past 2 months, and they have done some amazing work with our sound. Right now, we are hoping to release the EP in January but there is still much to do. Thanks for reading. For updates about the band check out http://facebook.com/shellshocklullaby Take care.

EP and Different Story are now available!!

If you haven't heard yet, we have finished our EP, "Finding Our Way," and our single, "Different Story," and they are both available on itunes, amazon, reverbnation, and several other online stores. So if you dig our music, you can buy it now!! Thanks for your support, guys. Take care.

EP Update!

The song are finished! Finally! They should be available on itunes before the end of the month. I recently had the songs mastered by Maor Appelbaum in Los Angeles. He worked with artists like Rob Halford, Lita Ford, Yngwie Malmsteen etc...Here's his webpage if you want to check out more of his work, http://maorappelbaum.com/. Anyway, there has been some changes on the EP. After much thought, we decided to put 4 songs on the EP and release Different Story as a single. Different Story just didn't sound right with the other songs on the EP. But no worries, all 5 songs will still be available. Keep in touch. And thanks for reading.

New Line up! New EP!

Shell Shock Lullaby has had a change in line-up over the past month. Kevin recently left the band to join an up and coming metal band in Spokane, WA called Martriden. Kevin has always been a metal-head at heart and we wish him and his band the best of luck. Joe Beaudry also left the band to concentrate on school. He has several scholarships at Montana Tech where he studies computer programming and web design. We hope to see Joe exceed also. But before they left they did a great job on the EP which is expected in early April. Thanks to Joe, Kevin, and Matt Johnson at Fourth Avenue Studios the tracks sound awesome! We be gigging and promoting the EP with John Warham on drums and Anthony Francisco on bass. They are both really talented musicians and I look forward to working with them. Stay tuned for more up-dates. Thanks for reading and take care.
