Série Guitarras do Pearl Jam – Ep2

Fender Telecaster Custom Shop 63 de Eddie Vedder.

1
Talvez a guitarra mais icônica do Pearl Jam seja essa Telecaster de Eddie Vedder. Mais precisamente é uma Fender Telecaster Custom Shop 63 totalmente modificada ao longo dos anos.
Em 1995 podemos notar Eddie já usando essa Telecaster (ficamos na dúvida se ele usava ela em 94 já, pode ter usado na tour Vitalogy), ainda original, toda preta. Em nossa pesquisa não conseguimos descobrir exatamente quando foi a primeira vez que ele usou essa guitarra no palco, porém temos uma leve intuição de que ele adquiriu essa guitarra na mesma época em que ele quebrou no palco outra guitarra icônica (em breve falaremos dela) lá em 1995, uma outra Telecaster preta com o adesivo “Skateboard is not a crime” colado no escudo.
2
Voltando à Telecaster Custom, Eddie foi modificando ela ao longo dos anos. A primeira mudança foi o braço dessa guitarra, que em 1995 era Maple e logo depois ele trocou para Pau Rosa. Essa mudança não refletiu muito na estética, acreditamos que foi questão de gosto mesmo. Também raspou o corpo para dar acabamento de Stratocaster, e substituiu os captadores para Lindy Fralins (o captador do braço é um P90).
Essas mudanças deixaram o som dessa guitarra muito peculiar. Nosso parceiro no projeto, Luan Dondé, nos explicou como ele descreve o som que sai da Telecaster de Eddie Vedder.
“É um som bem único. Os captadores Lindy Fralins são feitos à mão. Com essa captação modificada a guitarra consegue um bom efeito Punch (punch deixa a guitarra em evidência, à frente das outras. Você percebe o som dela isoladamente na música mesmo com outras guitarras junto) e sustain (duração das notas). Isso dá um brilho especial no som que sai da Telecaster do Vedder.”
Ao longo do tempo a guitarra passou por uma nova pintura no corpo dela, em tom Black Holoflake (uma pintura metálica com brilhos). Esteticamente ele adicionou dois adesivos na parte da frente, um (1) em alusão ao The Who, que é explicado no filme Pearl Jam Twenty; e outro (2) é um adesivo do Jonhnny Ramone, que pouca gente sabe que está ali, pois ele é bem escuro.
3
A Telecaster Custom 63 é, sem dúvidas, a guitarra favorita de Eddie Vedder. É a guitarra que ele mais usa em shows. Músicas como Corduroy, Small Town, Immortality, Porch, Rearviewmirror e muitas outras geralmente são tocadas com ela por Eddie. Ela é uma guitarra que tem um timbre único pelas modificações que ela passou ao longo dos anos, e pela maneira do Eddie tocar. É uma guitarra que desempenha muito bem em um som limpo (clean), mas também demonstra presença quando recebe um pouco de distorção. Seria uma guitarra “pau pra toda obra”, digamos assim!

Então chegamos ao final do segundo episódio “Guitarras do Pearl Jam”! Gostaria de ressaltar que as informações acima foram buscadas totalmente na internet, se alguma estiver errada (e pode estar, como por exemplo o ano em que ele adquiriu essa guitarra) e alguém encontrar a informação certa, deixe nos comentários! Juntos vamos desvendando os mistérios da Telecaster Custom Shop 63 de Eddie Vedder!

Eddie Vedder realiza sonho de fã que venceu câncer cerebral

O garoto Roarke, grande fã de Eddie Vedder e do Pearl Jam, venceu recentemente um grave câncer no cérebro.

DkBhY95V4AA6atX

A partir desse momento iniciou-se uma campanha na internet com a hashtag #RoarkeGetsVedder. A campanha inicou com seu professor de violão, Andrew Long, e logo se espalhou por diversas plataformas até chegar ao Eddie.

sss

O encontro aconteceu nos últimos dias, e além de conhecer Eddie Vedder ele fez uma Jam com ele!

A música favorita de Roarke é Yellow Ledbetter, enquanto o menino tocou Eddie Cantou, tudo isso aos olhos de Jill que organizou o encontro dos dois.

Linda história não!?

Série Guitarras do Pearl Jam – Ep1

Olá amigos e seguidores da Pearl Jam to Fly!
Apresentamos para vocês uma série de matérias bem bacanas sobre as guitarras do Pearl Jam. São guitarras usadas em shows, no estúdio, e muitos outros lugares que ajudaram a traçar a sonoridade do Pearl Jam ao longo dos anos.
Essa matéria não segue uma ordem cronológica de tempo, e vai abordar as guitarras do Mike, Stone e do Eddie.

Gibson 1959 Les Paul Standard Electric Guitar

gibson 1959
A primeira guitarra que iremos mostrar é essa beleza chamada Gibson Les Paul Standard de 1959. É uma guitarra que acompanha o Mike McCready há quase 20 anos.
Mike adquiriu essa guitarra na época em que tocava com o Mad Season, e por anos jamais usou ela no palco, por medo de quebrar. Usou em diversas composições nos anos seguintes, até que em algum momento testou Alive com essa guitarra… Depois de tocar Alive com a Gibson ele finalmente passou a levar a guitarra nas turnês, e perdeu o medo de acabar quebrando o instrumento.

“As guitarras são feitas para serem tocadas (risos). Essa guitarra faz as músicas soarem melhor.” (mike em depoimento para o site EquipBoard.com)

26492201923_4a8bcb6207_b
“Eu tive muita sorte de encontrar essa guitarra no Danny’s Music (Everret, Washington), bem na época da gravação do Mad Season na verdade. Acho que devo ter pago algo em torno de 25 mil dólares ou mais. Eu tenho certeza que nunca vou me desfazer dessa guitarra porque tudo nela soa muito bem. Eu uso ela em Alive quando estamos em tour e eu nunca consegui um tom parecido com outra Les Paul nessa música, só com ela” (mike em depoimento para o site EquipBoard.com)

1038466819-McCreadys59burstfretboardjournal2_zps02e93823
Nosso parceiro no projeto “Guitarras do Pearl Jam”, Luan Dondé, nos deu várias informações preciosas sobre o instrumento;
“Entre 1958 e 1960 foram produzidas 1.700 guitarras desse modelo Les Paul Standard. Ela usa captadores PAF, desenhados pela Seth Lover, um luthier famoso da Gibson.”

mccready-lp_full_770.png
“Uma das combinações que deve ter feito o Mike escolher essa guitarra para o solo de Alive provavelmente é o de combinar o efeito Fuzz (efeito muito popular no rock) e o efeito vibe. O som mais cru desse modelo Les Paul, combinado com estes dois elementos deixa o solo de Alive mais “Hendrix”, digamos assim.”

Outros grandes guitarristas usam esse mesmo modelo, talvez o que tenha deixado o modelo mais famoso foi o Slash, guitarrista do Guns N’Roses.

Esse foi o primeiro episódio da série Guitarras do Pearl Jam!
Em breve traremos detalhes de outra guitarra, você pode deixar sua sugestão de qual guitarra querem um review nos comentários.

I am glad you found each other.  He gets them some beers.  “Now, I am gonna give these to you and I want to watch you enjoy them.  But that is all I want to see.  They drink the beer pretty quickly and Ed ask, “Now you don’t do the other thing that quickly.”  He goes back to voting and says the best thing is on that day we are all equal.  It is right and responsibilities.  He says we need to vote in big numbers because there are complications like big money, corruption and Russians.  Voting is the Antidote.  It is your vote they can’t deny)

20. Fatal

Ed asks the audience to show their appreciation for all the hard work the individuals have put in he asks them to turn on their phone lights.  We talked about Paul McCartney’s music in here I thought we should have some of John’s as well)

25. Jeremy
(I need to make a public service announcement and there are probably signs.  If you text “ROCK” to 52886 you will be asked to commit to being a voter in November.  It is the people you vote for that will be your voice in DC.  It is overwhelming.  There is a lot going on.  Make sure to use your voice.  It is so important for your community, state, country and planet.  You are in the top five states where the election can be decided by the youth vote.  We would never tell you who to vote for.  In this case we don’t have to  The choice is obvious)
