First I have to apologize for not hitting the Blog here often enough- there is a number of things going on over the next month . First Ive been working on New material for my new CD - "Time is up for the NWO" - Although its too early to give specifics to a Release date yet . I did post a few short sample stream tracks that will be on the CD on my Reverbnation playlist . Also when the album is ready for release I will be giving loyal fans a great offer with an I-Tunes "Pre-Order" special prior to the official release of the album so you'll not only be one of the first ones to get it -before its even officially offered in the i-tunes stores - but you'll get "Special VIP fan appreciation Discount Pricing" - so when everythings ready to go -I'll be promoting the I-Tunes Pre-order Special with an I-Tunes Pre-order "Buy" link . Secondly, my Website www.robmazurekmusic.com will be online soon (I'll let you know when its ready and up and running ) Third- My Official Mobile Music/Fan App will be available soon - so you'll be able to keep up with me anywhere you may be and even order my New album off the special Pre-order buy link . Fourth- The Fan merchandise store will be getting a bit of an overhaul - and only the most popular items will remain for sale . I'll post an updated blog about this again when the fan store has been updated. -I hope I havnt forgotton anything here...just trying to do this Blog all from memory - so I think thats about it for now - Please check my links and follow me on Twitter or my official music page on facebook as well ! -Have a Rock'in Weekend ! -Rob
Hey Guys, just wanted to apologize in advance if I'm behind in responding to messages - working on new material so tend to sporadically respond to messages and keep up with my various social media pages at the moment - so when I do respond, its usually in the wee hours of the night when im done working on songs or recording for the day. So just wanted to let you know in advance, so you dont think ive been ignoring you . Thanks and hope your having a great weekend !
Just wanted to say a Huge Thanks to everyone who messaged me and dropped me comments and really awesome compliments regarding my music and guitar playing . Very Flattered and Overwhelmed by your Gracious statements and for those who mentioned it - Yes Music and playing guitar can be very emotionally moving to others when you put your soul into it . - I guess thats the beauty of music it tends to alter moods and allows the mind/imagination to wander for a few moments.
Posted a Sample Stream (Short Intro Sample) of a version of my Track God and JFK . I think the Wisdom and Warnings of JFK about Secret Societies and his hints about the enslavement of Americans, the Shadow Govt /Military Industrial Complex are more pertinent now more than ever.This Track will be on my next album appropiately titled - "Times Up for the New World Order" .
Ive been asked this same question many times by both other musicians and fans and thought id get around to answering it in a blog finally. My first Guitar was aquired at the age of 6 yrs old, it was an old Acoustic Guitar that I had recieved for Christmas - it was almost as big as I was at the time (or at least it sure seemed that way..lol) Of course I had no idea how to play at the time, but just strumming the open strings was somehow very magical to me and I was instantly hooked at that point on the Guitar. Many years later around 1990, I aquired a White Fender Strat and customized it with Mother of Pearl pick guard and Fender Lace sensor (Blue,Gold and Red) pickups. It was an awesome playing and sounding Guitar - unfortunately lost that one when my house got broken into one day while I was away . (Yeah I was Pissed at the time..lol) I later had an old Kramer guitar with an aluminum neck and very heavy wood body (it was definately not a guitar you'd want to play an entire Gig on stage with..lol) Anyways, I installed an APH-1 Seymour Duncun Alnico Pro 2 pickup in the Neck (This was the original pickup Slash used) and a Seymour Duncun Full Shred pickup in the Bridge position. That guitar totally kicked ass as far as overall tone and sustain goes...I wish I still had it today to record with - because it sounded just killer. I ended up selling it to a Buddy of mine who later also sold it (that drove me insane-because I would have bought it back..lol) For my Album "Walking Through the Darkside" I used a Les Paul and recorded that album with basically just the Les Paul,My old Digitech GNX-4 Processor and my Roland GR-20 Guitar Synth for some backing Tracks and thats pretty much it . Everything you hear on that album is just myself and this gear. On my Track "Hear the Angels crying" -I used a panning effect which created a stereo type pan back and forth which you can plainly hear and a delay effect which gives the song its unique sound. Hendrix used Panning effects quite a bit on his albums as well (or at least his engineers did on his albums on some songs) I'm always fascinated by New gear on the market and try to keep myself updated on whats out there which intrigues me as Musicians tend to be extremely picky about getting great Tone and gear - but at a reasonable price tag as well . As far as Amps go,Ive always been partial to Marshall amps - I had a 30th Anniversary Head and 1960 B Cabinet with a 3 channel footswitch which was a great amp - but then again Marshall has manufactured so many awesome amps over the past decades that trying to choose just one...is like walking into a roomful of Gorgeous women and doing the same...lmao. As far as Pedals go, I loved the old Boss Super-Overdrive pedal - Zakk wylde originally used this pedal many years back - and I love the way it drives a Marshall....since then, many awesome pedals have hit the market, so its really a matter of preference now on what you like personally and the type/style of music you play. Anyways, I didnt mean to turn this Blog into a semi-novel here- just wanted to answer the most frequently asked question I usually get from people who hear my songs and ask what I use for gear. So there you have it !!!

My Track "Beyond the Heavens" is something I created using my imagination and my Roland Guitar Synth. I posted a sample of the Track here to have a listen. -I was always a big fan of Star Strek films (even the original Star Trek TV series) and created this little synthesized piece as sort of an homage to the Star Trek Legacy and all the Stars of the film that it made it so great ! I'll be the first to admit its not really my typical Genre - but I hate Limiting myself to any Genre when it comes to creativity of the mind. Anyways, I find its a really soothing,relaxing-almost therapuedic sound track to help relax the mind and maybe even help relieve some of your daily stress perhaps -so close your eyes,take a listen, and hope you enjoy it !
