. For most of us, any new chord shape that comes along is often a bit tricky at first to get to and away from in progressions etc. The solution for those so impassioned is the 'one strum per' method. And while not very musical, it works in gettting a new shape under our fingers. Example 1.

What is SuperHoot again? Superhoot is simply three artistic ways to create community by celebrating the diversity of our communities through the local talent available where the productions take place. There are three formats for bringing forth the message.

Superhoot is a master plan for those in need of ideas for getting our newfound music theory knowledge into music for playing shows. Once the basic guitar riff is mastered it becomes a basis for composing your own original music for the shows. Putting the shows together is what builds a superhoot in your own community.

In a nutshell. There is no easier way to begin rocking out for guitarists than to tune up in an open tuning. Beginners through super advanced cats get the same start point power chord just by banging on the thing in an open tuning. So the question becomes ... do you want to rock on out right now ? Got your git? An acoustic of got your rig turned on ? Here are the pitches.

the big roar
chord melody
storylines
'the house is a rockin'

An open tuning for 'G' / top 5 strings. This tunes us up so the open top five strings sound a solid 'G' major triad. Here are the pitches. G D G B D.

Got to find some blues first. We can trace this five string open 'G' tuning back to the early Americana banjo players. Once the six sting guitar started showing up on the scene, early blues artists simply transfered the pitches from their banjos. Here's a common enough idea. Example 1.

The superhoot riff. Here's perhaps the central chord shape for the guitar method portion of this work. Have this under your fingers ?

Example 1.?

Banjo / open G. For most of us, any new chord shape that comes along is often a bit tricky at first to get to and away from in progressions etc. The solution for those so impassioned is the 'one strum per' method. And while not very musical, it works in gettting a new shape under our fingers. Example 1.

SuperHoot is written to be performed by similar actors in any community.
Required in order of appearance:
1 comedian / MC / Shakespeare's 'puck' /
The band + 3 background vocalists.
1 diva / female
4 couples of dancers
1 male diva
1 spoken word artist.
The show ideally scoots right along but the pace is negotiable.
It is two 35 minute acts with a 15 minute intermission.
There's a written encore to close the second act and end the show.

So in theory the show goes like this ... doors open at 7PM sharp and ...
As the room fills up (for 10 minutes) with ticketholders mingling in festival style room
PA house music interupted by the voice of God who says 'actors 10' all cast responds 'thank you God.'
Then 5 minutes later the PA voice of God 'actors 5 / thank you
Then PA voice of God 'actors places ...
Room goes black for a split second with huge cymbal crash to floora nd when the spot light comes up MC is on stage and 'caught' doing a last minute, something provocative with her costume. She knows she's been caught and plays that to the room. Here in Anchorage our MC would ideally be our own Shelly Wazniak and in theory she's written something very funny of her own for this intro spot. Goes for as long as she's funny. Talks about the show, that we're making a movie, that its a sing along and they're in the mix and encourages testing of mics / pa etc. by audience. The house also has canned laughter. That right there could be Shelly's routine, picking out the voices in the canned laughter and just riffing ...
MC then segues into the safety talk like Sandy Harper used to do at Cyrano's. 'And away we go ...
Band begins music:
1st # / Veronica as Tina / does Proud Mary and What's Love Got To Do With It. about 9 minutes.
Brings house down and as strutting off ...
Chorus ... "Hey where do you think you're going ... ?
As Diva Tina / Veronica goes off in a huff ... 'Wouldn't you like to know / Stick around I might be back.'
Eyes Joey for first time. ...'
Cast of dancers: 'Now what? Oh well let's dance. Short choreographed feature that highlights each couple as a solo and ensemble.
2nd # is a dance tune featuring the dancers, music tbd. About 4 minutes.
3th # is Joey doing original heavy blues rock tune 'Don't You Dare Call Me Baby' big finish with windmills etc.
Chorus; holy doodoo who is that cat?, etc. about 5 minutes
4rd # / is Veronica as David Bowie doing ... All The Young Dudes / Changes ... really meets Joey at end. about 7 minutes
He flirts, she's curious but ...he calls her 'baby' and she's having none of it as the dancers say ... uh oh ...
Superhoot beat comes into the mix for spoken word.
5th # is the spoken word piece about theme of show runs to 3 minutes and is titled 'self talk.' Act 1 self talk is negative toned but hopeful.
6th # is Joey doing tune 'Life On A Chain' about 4 minutes. = 32 minutes.

7th # is Veronica as Melissa Etheridge doing ... ? or Nicolette Larson doing 'Gonna Take A Lot Of Love' / talks with Joey who loves her, talk about coming out, stardom and true love.

Intermission: MC comedian out to close the 1st half, refresh yourselves as you see fit ... 15 minutes.

INTERMISSION : 15 minutes

Act 2
1st # is Joey, now with strippers in his show doing' Truth Is'. Veronica see's strippers and is very jealous.
2nd # / Veronica as ... as Robert Plant doing 'Whole Lotta Love' / with dance couples and singers.
3rd # / 2nd half of spoken word message
4th # / Veronica enters through audience to stage as Mick doing 'Satisfaction' Veronica and leaves stage after song as band jams on ...
5th # encore / band segues into Stone's "You Can't Always Get What You Want' with entire cast leading the audience to sing along,
Veronica comes out as Veronica, gets with Joey and sings the tune
Show ends with stage line of players et al., bows and walking off in full house lights, waving blowing kisses etc.
House exit music to be determined but probably a quick Porky Pig's 'that's all folks' followed by a very dramatic Stravinsky waltz :)
That's it ! Get ready for 2nd show.
Wow ... what a hoot even just writing that was !

 

Superhoot ... ? Yep superhoot. Just a crazy name for another jamband. So if you have some coolness under your fingers and you're looking for a new way into learning, the following method might be just the thing.. There's two basic jams to shed, one major one minor, to get the music going. Then there's where the jam takes us

Superhoot synopsis. The show is a comedy musical sing along with a core message that’s just a more modern rehash of the ancient ideas of love and loving, of being oneself and acceptance of each other while celebrating our differences and the strengthening of community that all of this brings to those involved.

Superhoot the show is written along the lines of the Yin Yang balance Corinna. The essence involves coming to terms with one’s own identity, just like millions of other shows, movies, psychological themes on and on forward as well as back into antiquity.

There’s no difference in any of it, just another way to present this theme and have fun in the process. Superhoot does this with iconic rock anthem songs and the star that made each one famous.
The storyline revolves around show biz and all its ability to guise its characters, create stars and roll the hype machine that so many have loved and followed all throughout human civilization, for there’s always been a ‘National Inquirer” and “TMZ” styled gossipy news to follow the stars.

In Superhoot, the diva, Anchorage’s own Veronica Page, becomes a star by covering other legends. The guy in love with her is our own AK Joey Fender, who of course plays himself. Joey is a struggling to be star but he’s Joey. Veronica is a big star but only by playing others. Joey thinks that if she comes out as herself, then she’ll fall in love with him and still be a star.

As the first act unfolds our diva comes out as Tina Turner then David Bowie, then as Melissa Etheridge. The second act opens with diva as Nicollette Larson, then Mick Jagger. For the encore song, diva comes out as herself.

The spoken word pieces (two) are the core of the SuperHoot show. Ideally 3 to 5 minutes in length, they are performed with a hip hop music groove backing with verses created and formed into a call and response format interspersed with a repeated hook.
As there are two acts in the show, there are two spoken word pieces, one in each act.

The themes revolve around re-inventing one’s eros.’
That in the first half the spoken word music is in a minor key and the theme is dealing with a ‘crushed erotic,’ the societal repression of one’s own unique spirit to be the person they naturally aspire to be. Your contribution to CC’s recent slam Corinna I think was along these lines. The hook is along the lines of ... “for I am the line between, Yin Yang :)”

The second half spoken word piece is backed by the same groove as act 1 music now in a major key and about taking the necessary steps so as to come to terms with ourselves as who we naturally are and the triumph of spirit that manifests and the strengths we gain by the process. Included in this piece are suggestions for how to gain the necessary strengths to succeed. Again we use the same call and response format with the hook which this time is along the lines of ... . “Be the line between Yin Yang :)”

Other considerations; my writing has been shaped by where I live and the ideas it generates, thus the show here in Anchorage is unique to Anchorage. A Superhoot show in your home of Houston Corinna would be similar but also taylored to things of Houston local.

That Myrna’s was really the only room to do this show in here in town has prompted many of the ideas for the show. Thus, the show as written here could play across gay clubs globally. As I dream up actually doing the show here in Anchorage, I had to think of which actors I wanted for the parts and then realize who could actually play the parts. So each character in the show is based on the real person in town who could pull it off.

Veronica Page is probably the only nightclub singer here in town who could pull off a credible Tina, David, Melissa, Nicolette and Mick. Also, everyone at Myrna’s knows Veronica as she’s gigged there dozens’s of times. So when she ‘comes out’ at the end it’s a very fitting and plausable conclusion to the show.

There’s 3 to 4 back up singers who are ’18 feet from fame’ with dialogue as such. Four pairs of dancers who also cheerlead the audience. There’s a separate PA with mics in the room to amplify the sing along nature of the show. Each of diva’s tunes are classics and everyone in the audience already knows the hook. When they all sing along it comes through the PA. All just to ramp up the hoot factor.

If we get to gig this book, and right now one date being discussed is the weekend of April 1, 2016 ...
In actual performance the show runs about 70 minutes with intermission. It will play 2 shows per night, on a Friday and Saturday weekend. Each show is filmed and recorded. The four takes are edited into one video for release with the script / book.

Of course you would completely own your artistic contributions Corinna and can use any part of Superhoot sound or video to market whatever you dream up, various merch etc. I own superhoot.com and many related registered domains. Also on Facebook, Twitter, linkedIn etc. The show could also tour and include you and your work. There must be a ‘chitlins’ circuit for gay clubs nationwide. Or the theme of the book can be re-written for any town in America. One plan is to caboose superhoot onto the Rocky Horror train and follow it wherever it goes. Playing that series of clubs simply on other dates. Rocky Horror is here in town now sold out at Myrna’s and is another of the original reasons for dreaming all this up.

If we get to the production and gig phase and you’re up for it, I’ll send lots of stuff your way to prepare, especially the backing music, which we can write and tweek together, thus you will own a part of. I’ll fly you up for the gigs and cover all that is necessary for your comfort and stay while in town. As a principle and part contributor, thus copywrite part owner of the superhoot ‘book’, your pay for the performance dates will be double to triple scale of the rest of the cast and band.
I’ve some loot to ‘commission’ these two spoken word pieces by you Corinna to help get the process started if necessary. I’ll also help to write these pieces if at all needed; proof read, critique, suggest themes and additional directions for the dialogue.

The basic budget is 10K, based on the sale of 100 tickets per show / 4 shows @ $25 per ticket. Plus they’ll be a couple of different merch items associated with the show, the profits to be split among all participants.

So ... that’s the gist of it for now Corinna. Looking forward to your ideas and thanks for your interest in Superhoot.

Stay warm be cool,
