Here’s something to spice up your Friday night.
Argentinean-born David M’ore shreds on his Fender Stratocaster like a comet coiling guitar strings, and sings with deep soul, grit and passion. And he’s bringing that heat to Newcastle.
M’ore received his first guitar, at the age of 8, from his godfather. His family wanted him to play classical and flamenco music. But M’ore loved the music of ACDC and Deep Purple.
He attended a conservatory of music where he would sneak behind the piano and play ACDC. “The (teacher) was very strict,” M’ore said. “But he showed me the technique on my hands. Now I’m so thankful I learned that stuff.”
M’ore cites Jimi Hendrix and Alvin Lee.
“I went to see a movie, ‘Woodstock,’” M’ore said. “I was obsessed.”
First using his mother’s tape recorder and a classical guitar, M’ore practiced an average of 10 hours a day.
“I started to play records from other bands like Deep Purple,” he said. “And a lot of blues like Muddy Waters; rock and blues. My goal was to mix these two styles and still make both sound like me.”
Even after all the interviews, concerts and CDs, he still loves to play guitar.
“I play original material, Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Led Zeppelin. The show is very intense. I’m very passionate for everything I do.”
Thus, the high octane blues rock.
M’ore resides in San Francisco, but has lived in many places, including Rio De Jineiro and Hollywood.
His newest CD is “Passion, Soul & Fire.”
“I spend a lot of time on the music,” he said. “I love what I do.”
