Hunter Hayes Announces “Hunter Hayes’ 24 Hour Road Race To End Child Hunger”

Multiple GRAMMY-nominee Hunter Hayes and ConAgra Foods have teamed up to end child hunger while attempting to break the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS® record for the Most Concerts Played in multiple cities in a 24-hour period. Hunter will kick off the “Hunter Hayes’ 24 Hour Road Race to End Child Hunger”, brought to you in part by ConAgra Foods’ Child Hunger Ends Here program, Friday, May 9 on Good Morning America in New York City. He is attempting to break the record (currently eight shows in 24 hours set by the Flaming Lips who broke the previous record made by Jay-Z) by playing 10 shows in 10 cities in 24 hours. VIP packages for the “24 Hour Road Race” are on sale now. Hunter recently debuted his music video on Good Morning America for his current single, “Invisible” featured on his new album Storyline being released May 6 on Atlantic Records / Warner Music Nashville. Hunter recently spoke with the New York Times to talk about how important this program is to him and why he got involved. Hayes, who has been working with ConAgra on Child Hunger Ends Here since 2012 said he “was astonished by the statistics” from Feeding America that more than one in five American children “aren’t sure where their next meal is coming from. Awareness is key with something like this, but just as important is that everyone can pitch in to make this story a better story — and how easy it is for us to help.” The “24 Hour Road Race” is also presented in part by Martin Guitar, Proctor & Gamble, Mercedes-Benz USA, and Ahold USA. Hunter is a Martin Guitar ambassador and will perform on a Martin OM-42 at each show, which will be auctioned at the end of the event to benefit the cause. Mercedes-Benz USA is the official car of the “24 Hour Road Race”. While Hayes sets his sights on setting the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS® record for the most concerts in one day, Child Hunger Ends Here is issuing a challenge to break their own record for the most meals donated in 24 hours. To help us break this record and end child hunger, look for the red pushpin and locate the code found on specially marked ConAgra Foods products. For each 8-digit code entered at www.ChildHungerEndsHere.com, ConAgra Foods will donate the monetary equivalent of one meal to Feeding America.** “Hunter Hayes 24 Hour Road Race To End Child Hunger” Cities and Door Times: May 9 8:00am – New York, NY – Good Morning America 9:15am – Boston, MA – Paradise Rock Club 11:30am – Worcester, MA – Palladium Upstairs (Acoustic Show) 1:45pm – Providence, RI – Lupo’s Heartbreak Hotel 4:15pm – New London, CT – Garde Arts Center 6:45pm – New Haven, CT – Toad’s Place 9:00pm – Stamford, CT – Palace Theatre 11:30pm – South Orange, NJ – South Orange Performing Arts Center May 10 2:00am – Asbury Park, NJ The Stone Pony (Acoustic Show) 5:00am – Philadelphia, PA Trocadero

The GAS Man: How to Upgrade Your Rig for 25 Cents

Posted 12/27/2013 at 10:32am | by William Baeck , Guitar World Magazine

Here’s how the average guitarist’s brain functions in response to being unhappy with tone …

Problem: Weedy tone.

Guitarist’s brain says: “Buy a Les Paul.”

Problem: Wooly tone.

Guitarist’s brain says: “Buy a Strat. No — a Tele. No, wait … buy both. And a new amp, just in case.”

One simple problem. One $2,500 solution.

Neurologists understand the reason for this kind of thinking. The brain is seated directly behind the eyes, where it is easily stimulated by bright and shiny things. Simultaneously, the brain is a financially insensitive organ, precisely because it’s located at the point on the human body farthest from the wallet.

This is science.

So let’s be financially sensitive and find the cheapest way to get better tone. I know, that doesn’t sound very rock and roll. It sounds like your dad complaining about the price of hamburger between naps on the Barcalounger.

But no one has to know except you and me. Just try a 25-cent experiment. Try a different guitar pick.

Even if you own half a dozen guitars, twice that many pedals and several amps, you probably use the same Fender Medium pick on each guitar, from acoustic to electric, whether you play folk or metal. That pick is a great, classic, middle-of-the-road, dad-approved choice. But music is about shaking things up, trying new things.*

So this time, buy a different pick instead of a different guitar. That little divided wooden box on the counter of every guitar store on the planet contains a potent selection of plectrums for changing your sound and even the playability of your instrument.

That’s because picks come in a variety of materials, from felt, to plastic, to wood, steel, and stone. They can be thick or thin, big or small, round or sharp, and all shapes in between.

And what a difference something as simple as a pick can make.

On my acoustic guitar I recently changed from playing solo with lots of airy open tunings to jamming with Cajun musicians who want me to play loud, chunky cowboy chords. My first time with them I was lost in the mix. The next day I did just what my guitarist brain suggested, and went to half a dozen music stores auditioning jumbo-bodied guitars.

They were great fun to explore, but something was still missing in my sound. It was too plinky, not up-front enough. Then I thought about the box full of dozens of different kinds of guitar picks I’ve bought over the years. After I got home I tried each kind to see the effect it might make.

In the end, I switched from my usual oversized, thin, pointy-tipped nylon pick to a very rounded, stubby, hard plastic one. The result was a big change in sound. Most obvious was the leap in volume. It was easily as different as switching from my OM to a dreadnought. The tone was rounder and more direct, without any accompanying “click” from the pick — an altogether smoother, even sound, great for pounding out straight four-to-the-bar and waltz rhythms.

The surprise was that it also affected my right-hand playing technique. No more having to carefully lift up the pick from one string and locate it onto the next. The stubbier pick just glided from string to string, letting me brush chords more easily and slide in bass runs here and there. A side benefit was that by being so smooth and producing more volume, I didn’t have to work as hard to get the sound out, saving wear and tear on my wrist — an important consideration after strumming unamplified for three hours non-stop in a noisy pub.

Give it a try. In fact, seeing how cheap picks are, give it lots of tries. And don’t worry, you can get a bright and shiny rock and roll one — and even carry it in your wallet, far from your brain.
