NOVEMBER COMBO MEETING: LAWYERS, CLUBS & MONEY
COMBO has had several requests to offer a program on what to do when the club stiffs you for the money they promised – after you came out and played for several hours, maybe set up your own sound system, promo’d like mad so your friends, family and fans would know you were playing. So we’ve set up such a program and we’re calling it – Lawyers, Clubs & Money – a play on Warren Zevon’s song, Lawyers, Guns & Money. Guest speakers will be Dave Ratner, Creative Law Network, L.L.C., a local, well-known entertainment lawyer, who will assist you with some simple contracts; David Barber, COMBO Board Member, whose book,“Gigging: Everything You Need To Know About Playing Gigs (Except How To Play Your Axe)”, contains a chapter on just this very subject; and COMBO Board Member and Ombudsman Annette Cannon. Annette has actually gotten a few clubs to pay up for our members and she’ll tell you how she did it.
When: Sunday, November 16th
Where: Breckenridge Brewery Ballpark Pub, 2222 Blake Street, Denver
Time: 7:00 until 9:00 p.m.
Ages: All ages – The venue is a restaurant and people of all ages are welcome!

DANNY MASTERS TO OFFER FREE GUITAR MASTER CLASS ON NOV. 18th
Danny Masters-Gorklo will be giving a free guitar Master Class for the Denver Guitar Workshop on Tuesday, November 18th at 7:00 p.m. at 23 Lincoln Street (church), in Denver. It is open to guitarists of all levels.
The topic will be technique and improvisation. He will show how to use the 24 Segovia scales over ii/V/I backing tracks to bridge the gap between classical and jazz, then will incorporate altered dominant, diminished and altered pentatonic scales to expand the tonal possibilities of blues, jazz and rock progressions. He hopes to touch on Allan Holdsworth’s 10 most useful scales concepts, too.
Be sure and bring your axe with you!
