Eclipse Guitars - Luthier and Guitar tech for Gene and ADE


Mike Patton has been my guitar tech for many years now and is the only guy I trust to work on my instruments. That simple.

Another great resource and necessary for everything that you can't get at Drum City(recording hardware/software, Marshall, Mesa, keys). Unfortunately a giant corporation, but don't hold that against Clint and the guys at the Arvada, GC - they're the best!

Instructional Resources

In addition to various original materials created by Gene for use by his students, students may be asked to purchase some of the following resources depending on their area of study. While materials can be purchased anywhere the student desires, Gene has an Instructor File at Rockley Music Center in Lakewood and they are familiar with all of his study materials.
Contact Aaron at 303-233-4444. Below is a partial list of resources used by Gene Crout in instruction.

Guitar and Bass technique:

The Ultimate Scale Book by Troy Stetina, published by Hal Leonard (HL00695330) ISBN 0-7935-9788-9 An absolutely fantastic pattern based look at all the popular scales and modes including some rather "exotic" scales as well. I call it the Scale Bible. Stetina is awesome.
Practice Trax for Guitar by Danny Gill and Musician's Institute, published by Hal Leonard (HL00695161) ISBN 0-7935-7991-0

Very cool Jam CD with everything from single chord jams up to complex key changes. Extremely useful in learning to solo and improvise.

Band in the Pocket by Five Feathers Music,, available at Guitar Center Another cool Jam CD. Not as cool as Practice Trax, but useful nonetheless.
Currently teaching from an ever expanding list of well over 750 songs from the 60's through today!

Music Theory and Eartraining:
Theory for the Contemporary Guitarist by Guy Capuzzo, published by Alfred Publishing ISBN 0-7390-1306-8 Good basic theory book specifically tailored to guitarists.
Harmony and Theory by Keith Wyatt & Carl Schroeder and Musicians Institute, published by Hal Leonard (HL00695161) ISBN 0-7935-7991-0 Good general purpose theory book. Covers bases that Capuzzo misses.

Worship Leading and Team Participation:
The Heart of the Artist, published by Zondervan ISBN 0-3102-2471-3 An absolute must read and "heart check" for anyone involved in music ministry. Fact is, its pretty solid advice for just about anyone.

Recording and Music Technology:
Behind The Glass and Behind the Glass Volume II by Howard Massey Absolutely fascinating read. Best thing about this book is that it proves beyond a shadow of a doubt, that there is no "right" or "wrong" in recording. For any opinion, you will see an opposite view represented. Fantastic Book!
Mixing Secrets for the Small Studio by Mike Senior Boy do I wish this book had been written in 1997 instead of 2012. It would have saved me 15 years of trial and error and hard learning on my own. Essential reading for every recording student and small to mid size studio owner. And great reminders and refreshers for even seasoned pros.
Electronic Musician Magazine ( Excellent resource for those new to music technology. Helps really get you started with the proper basics. I recommend this to any new home studio user.
The Art of Mixing by David Gibson Mix Books and Hal Leonard Distribution (HL00330318) ISBN 0-918371-17-1 A fascinating visual approach to mixing. Can really open your eyes to how sound is "sculpted" when it is mixed.
