My name's Adam Smale. I've been playing guitar since 7 years old and I'm 45 now, so I'll let you do the math. And I've been playing professionally for around 33 years, since the age of 12. I wrote a book, called "New Approach to Scales" for guitars. Basically, this book really is a new approach to playing scales. It's not, sort of regurgitation of scales that have come before, the same old thing. I've developed a new approach to mapping out the guitar neck and playing scales in a completely different way.
If you're more interested in checking this book out, you can go to newapproachtoscales.com. This here, is a guitar that I designed and had someone in Toronto, by the name of Brian Mascarin build for me. It's a seven string guitar, but it's a little bit different. It's a low E, on the sixth string. And matter of fact, I consider this the sixth string, but the seventh string is a high string. So, I think of it as six, five, four, three, two, one, seven, because that's the one that's different.
Aside from gigging around the New York area, I also compose my own music and I have a CD coming out, sometime in the New Year. And, so be on the lookout for that. If you'd like to learn more about me and what I do, you can visit my website, its adamsmale-jazz.com.
