LEGENDARY ULI JON ROTH Will be doing a "Namm Jamm" at Malones on Jan. 26, 2013. Our great Friend EDDIE @ THE HOUSE OF METAL IS OFFERING DISCOUNTED TIX TO THIS SHOW http://www.facebook.com/kittybeast?ref=tn_tnmn#!/OCMetalHouse
In Roth's early days with Scorpions, his soloing style was based primarily on the blues scale, occasionally incorporating notes from other modes. However, by the time the band recorded the Virgin Killer album, he began incorporating more advanced compositional elements from European classical music, such as pedal tone sequences and intricate arpeggios. Beginning with Electric Sun, the classical influence began to dominate his playing style, notable in songs like "Cast Away Your Chains" and "Still So Many Lives Away". His style eventually became a fusion of blues-based rock with European classical sensibilities. Roth employs major and minor pentatonic, the blues scale, phrygian, harmonic minor, diminished, and the whole tone scale, notably in his famous "Sails Of Charon" solo.
Uli always busts out some old Scorps, Hendrix and often has amazing guests at his shows, you never know who will show up and what will be played.
