Josephrodz - Miss You
You ARE one of the best guitarists on Earth and you are 'Up there with the best' and always have been.
Nice one yet again,Mr Rodriguez.
Thanks for the comments, really appreciated,I cryed when play, thats the way to express the feeling!
Tenderness abides here. Taking an aggressive sound and taming the beast to a gentle friend.
PS...the "red" text in the Artists Bio is really hard to make out...ok-ok...ive tried going cross-eyed...bunging me reading gegs on...then took em off again and just screwed me eyes up...or is it just me? hahaha K
That guitar is just so sweet and melodic...I'm really am envious...wish I sounded like this, you make it sound so darned easy. What guitar are you using???...I just like to know these things :-) k
The opening piano riff reminded me of that '80s song She's Like The Wind (had to google it to remind me who recorded it - Patrick Swayze! - there's a blast from the past), however it changed quickly with the introduction of your guitars. Guitar sound is awesome, as we have come to expect. The a sense of lyrics leads me to think this might make a great theme tune for a television show. Maybe a drama? Rated!
Joe , I've always been a fan of your playing, and songwriting and this is why,
I love it Buddy.
Beautiful piano intro, super guitar playing, nice lead in, and wonderful panned guitars, classic sound, excellent recording, very good mixing, a real winner!
Another beaut Joe...I definitely sense the "missing you" in it. Tugs the heartstrings.
well done.. great job on all of it.. guitar work is fantastic.. if you ever want to drop some licks on my stuff let me know...
Sublime guitar playing and classy production. Rated!
enjoyed your track nice guitar
Wonderful piece of music.
All inspiring, great words of praise for you, your talents... Miss you, beautifully. An amazing Cd, and one that I have listened to often... keep doing what you do the best! "Bravo!" :)
Love this Joseph. Such a beautiful melody. Really reminds me of Neal Schon's solo stuff. One of my favourite guitar players, as are you.
Joseph Rodriquez was born and raised in Ponce, P.R. in a close-knit family. His father was a musician in the school band so it was natural that Joseph was a musician from the day he was born. At the age of 6 years old, music was no longer promoted in school so Joseph made his own music by drumming with pencils on his desk. At the age of 10 his father exposed him to the music of Tito Puente and Tito Rodriguez which caught Joseph's interest. A year later his father bought him a drum set and Joseph began to practice. At the age of 15 he became a member of a band called The Freedom Brothers which played the music of Three Dog Night and other popular bands of the time. It was at this time that Joseph decided to master the guitar. His mother was also taking guitar lessons so she showed him his first chords which he practiced day after day in his bedroom. Joseph was also greatly influenced by the bands he saw in the Woodstock Festival documentary which drove him to practice more and more. So it's no surprise that you will hear in Joseph's style the influences of Santana, Jimi Hendrix, The Who, and many other bands from that musical era. He also played in a group that performed the music of Grand Funk Railroad where he honed his vocal skills. Learning guitar changed Joseph's life as people started to notice his skills on the instrument. His ultimate dream was to play in the United States where most of his idols performed. Joseph continued to play his music until he discovered the computer and all the musical possibilities that came along with it. Although he had recorded music on reel to reel and mini disc recorders, they didn't compare to the capabilities of PC recording. Joseph also worked at local recording studios where he learned a great deal about the process by recording some area artists in and around Ponce and nearby cities. In 1980 he recorded with a band called Stevie Staff where he arranged the music, played drums, keyboards, and guitar. With his new found computer recording skills and all the possibilities that came along with it, Joseph began to compose and make more music right from his PC. It was at this point that it all came together with the Internet explosion. This allowed Joseph to meet other musicians and fans from around the world. He now has a site to place his songs and share his music with the world. But through all this Joseph has never lost his burning desire to play in the United States so he can fulfill his lifelong dream and share the God given talents he feels fortunate to have.Farrell Jackson

Suggested to me by Superhuman Dave for review, which was very nice of him.OK, so the intro is awesome. A touch of humour and a bit reminiscent of Yankee Rose by David Lee Roth, but still an awesome intro none the less. Very clever use of different techniques to produce the different guitar sounds for the "conversation" between the axe and Carol Sue. The spoken vocal samples provided by that
Heart Stealer - Featuring Allan Bell (Rock)
IT takes a lot for me to write a review. Not becuas eof pig-headidness but becasu in my day job I shuffle around a million words a day so you can exceuse me if I get sick of the written word.
Anyway, I was moved to put a few words on to paper because I am being constantly uplifted by the collabs sparked by the superb talent
Onto a new batch of reviews from me, and the first one I'm reviewing is a collaboration involving Allan Bell (Geiger167) and Joseph Rodriguez (erm... Joseph Rodriguez)!
Joseph is definitely on guitars, and I'm pretty certain that Allan Bell is on vocals, but I'm not sure who or what provided the rest of the track! Either way, this is a lesson in classic rock through and through! I could say that
You would think, given the amount of time I have been reviewing internet-only music that I would have pretty much heard everything under the sun. Not a bit of it. New things are coming up all the time as you are about to discover. Now I've laid some strange mixtures on you but believe me, this next one is a doozy. Imagine, Joseph Rodriguez thought, if you could blend heavy
Well,....I'll admit,....I was surfing around,.....just commenting here and there,....trying to drive some comments my way. Then I stumbled on this guy. Man this dude can play. The arrangement is articulated very well and this musician knows precision. Makes me think maybe this guy ought to be doing studio work.There are heavy "classic rock" influences. AC/DC,....Foghat?.....Boston??good in any cas
A real, nice mix of styles and influences. I thoroughly enjoyed every second of this song. I would definitely listen to this anytime.
