RBN – Cetan Clawson – White Heat Video Preview

on August 31, 2009 5:16 PM

A lot of people love Rock Band, Rock Band 2, etc. but many are perhaps even more anxious with the ability to make their own songs and get them into these games. People have not exactly been sure of what to expect from the upcoming Rock Band Network, but when I see things like this video it just makes me smile. This video shows the power of user created music and where it can take this genre. The guitar riffs from this young “prodigy” along with the drums look insane and flow seamlessly with the music. As I watch this video I tip my hat to these guys, just hope that I can rock it on “Medium”, damn carpal tunnel.

We’ll cut to the chase. Here’s our first video preview of “White Heat” by Cetan Clawson and the Soul Side.

We’ve made no secrets about how excited we are to work with Cetan Clawson. The 21-year-old electric blues prodigy has the talent to follow in the foosteps of Stevie Ray Vaughan, and a style reminiscent of the great Jimi Hendrix.

At 2 minutes, 13 seconds, “White Heat” is exactly that: a fireball of fast, frenetic, and incredibly challenging guitar work that doesn’t take a break for two seconds. This isn’t just random fretwork, though… every single note contributes to the amazing groove of the song. The bass and drum parts are no slouches, either! We’re certain you’ll want to pick up “White Heat” as soon as the Rock Band Network store launches.
