Derek Trucks Remix Contest


Derek Trucks by Tracy McKay
Ever wanted to jam with Derek Trucks? Well, pickers, singers and players, of any skill level, now have a chance. The Derek Trucks Band have teamed up with IndabaMusic to create the "'Get What You Deserve' Remix Contest," which invites fans to collaborate with Derek and the band on the tune "Get What You Deserve," from the band's latest release, Already Free.

To participate, just head to the IndabaMusic DTB Contest page to enter. Once you're entered, download the four instrumental parts to "Get What You Deserve," and then get down to it. You can "sit-in" with the band by replacing one of the instrumental parts with one of your own, adding an entirely new instrumental part to the mix or by remixing the whole song. If your version hits the note with the panel of judges (Steve Berkowitz, A&R guru at Sony Music, Doyle Bramhall II and Derek Trucks), you'll have a chance win gear from Epiphone, Sweetwater and Shure, along with a chance to meet the Derek Trucks Band backstage at a show.

As a person who was lucky enough to listen to the early Allmans in Piedmont Park, then hearing several inspirational musicians while in India...I bow my head in thanks to the Spirit guiding Derek Trucks and feel very fortunate to be able to watch Derek and Family...go Beyond!

I agree with the above comeent about how hard it is to play slide. Took me years to get the feel and having to dampen the other strings with your other fingers is just really hard to get used to.

Anyone who plays knows there isn't anyone who can even get close to Derek's slide playing, it is by far the most incredible display of what can be done with some strings and a tube.
