JAM WITH THE DEREK TRUCKS BAND!
Feb 20th, 2009, 05:59
Now's your chance to jam with a truly legendary musician! Derek Trucks is widely considered the best guitarist of his generation, along with being a superbly talented songwriter, bandleader, and producer. Derek was playing paying gigs with The Allman Brothers Band and Buddy Guy at the amazingly young age of eleven and by fifteen had formed his own group, The Derek Trucks Band. In January, the dTb put out their seventh album, Already Free, which debuted at #19 on the Billboard Top 200. A powerful blues-rock disc with eclectic R&B, jazz, and Middle Eastern influences, Already Free was self-produced by Derek at his new home studio in Jacksonville. In addition to the core members of the dTb, the album features collaborations with a close circle of family and friends including Doyle Bramhall II, Oteil Burbridge, Susan Tedeschi, Duane Trucks and more. The dTb is extending the invitation to you with an opportunity to collaborate on the track Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½Get What You DeserveÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½ from Already Free. Derek and the band have made the four instrument parts available to the Indaba community. Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½Sit-inÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½ by replacing an existing instrument part, add an entirely new instrument part, or (if youÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½re so inclined) you can even remix the song! Whether you play a screaming guitar duel with Derek, round out the song with a bass line, or add a new beat, The Derek Trucks Band wants to hear what you can bring to the jam!
