Digitally remastered edition of this classic solo release from the Deep Purple member. The new artwork includes liner notes exclusively written by Roger Glover. The Gemini Suite was first performed in September 1970 at the Royal Festival Hall and was recorded the following year at the Abbey Road and de Lane Lea studios as the first solo project of Jon Lord. It is a six piece classic-rock fusion work inspired by the members of Deep Purple and was recorded with the London Symphonic Orchestra conducted by Oscar winner Malcolm Arnold and is featuring the guest musicians Albert Lee, Yvonne Elliman, Tony Ashton as well as the two other Deep Purple member Ian Paice and Roger Glover.
In this first feature of Post-Rock Essentials, we literally get down to the roots of the style, exploring the key of C and G major over the fretboard.
This feature focuses on building 3rds through the groups of strings, which are then explored in tandem with various combinations of open strings. The lesson is beginner friendly, and also comes with fretboard diagrams to study as a companion to the video.
