Introducing the Secret Room – a website where players will have access to a vast repository of tips, tricks, and techniques — the kind of “secrets” that some musicians jealously protect.
But before being admitted to this password-protected site, visitors must contribute one of their own tone secrets — the kind of hard-won musical wisdom that is almost too good to share.
Once players submit a secret, they get to access all the other exclusive secrets. They can also comment on the secrets and rate them. And just to keep things lively, the highest rated secret between now and March 1st, 2012, will receive a Godin Summit CT, a lovely and versatile carved-top solidbody electric guitar that sells for around $1,000. Second and third place winners receive a set of Seymour Duncan pickups of their choice.
The Secret Room will have no ads, spam, or blatant self-promo. Just lots of great tone secrets. The site’s curator is Joe Gore, musician, writer, and editor of the blog tonefiend.com. The sponsor is Seymour Duncan, a company dedicated to helping guitarists and bassists own their tones.
The Secret Room has up until this point been existing out of view, gathering many closely guarded tips from well known artists, techs, session players and recording experts.
