Hey there,

Ive been following this guys work for quite some time now.

A bit different style, and quite refreshing for steel string guitar music i think biggrin.gif


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0qTnkbcKyFg - Song is called Trilogie, and consists of 3 pieces.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vRvRBQTqUKI - Song is called Memories of the future.

What ya think?

Sigge

Hey Sigge, I hope you don't mind, I had a DuFour topic going already so I just moved your post to it.

Anyway, yeah, it's worth bringing Antoine up again, because he has a new DVD out with Andy McKee on Candyrat Records. It has three songs on it that you can't get on CD yet - one of which isn't on YouTube (the two other unreleased tracks, "Mother" taken from the DVD and "Toi et Moi" can be viewed on YouTube though).

I did a mini-review of his first album a couple of days ago on my site:

http://instrumentalcase.com/EssentialInstrumental.aspx

The aptly titled "Naissance" (meaning Birth) was progressive fingerstylist Antoine DuFour's first full-length album, and was the result of three years of writing. It features percussion and bass on some tracks, as well as virtuoso violinist Tommy Gauthier. This is prog fingerstyle in the truest sense, because many of Antoine's musical inspirations are prog rock bands, such as Dream Theater. DuFour's playing is very rhythmic (full of Don Ross style funk elements), but also flowing and melodic at all the right times. Antoine often experiments with odd tunings and partial capos, along with lots of slap harmonics and acoustic percussion. However, he's no Hedges clone; Antoine certinaly has a style of his own, which draws on a lot of influences outside of fingerstyle guitar (check out the acoustic-meets-electronica track, "Technoguitar").

Start by playing something - a bend, a riff, a scale, a song - very slowly; if you make a mistake, start over; do this over and over, until you can play it flawlessly - and I do mean flawlessly - many times in a row. Next, gradually increase the tempo. Eventually you'll be flailing like a madman.

You guys should check out Preston Reed, Tommy Jones, Andrew York, Tommy Emmanuel, etc... if you haven't already. Tommy in particular. Although, Reed and York were big influences on Antoine.

For anyone who's interested I have done basic guitar pro tabs of his version of Dracula and friends, Spiritual groove and Development. Spiritual groove and Development aren't finished yet but the tabs should give you the basic idea on how to play the songs. I made them mainly to have something to practice to. If anyone wants them let me know.

You're asking me to play Dufour and actually tape it Muris? I'm not close to good enough to pull off that stuff with any kind of flair. I can kind of play Dracula and friends but it pales in comparison to Antoines performance. So you'll have to excuse me for bowing out on that one for now Muris biggrin.gif. But who knows, in a month or two I might have reached a level on that song that wouldn't be too embarassing to actually record and show to the rest of the world.

I am going to take you up on that offer Muris. However I don't have a video camera so I'm going to have to find one first. After I've got one I'll tape myself playing Dracula and friends and post it on your board. I have pretty much finished the tab on Development as well so I'm going to start really learning it now but that one will take quite awhile to learn properly.
