Legendary Rocker Mark Farner Debuts ‘Farner Chords’ Video Series Launches with “People, Let’s Stop The War”
Michigan’s legendary rock and roll guitarist and frontman Mark Farner is launching a long-awaited instructional video series. Farner Chords, a new video series where
Farner gives a detailed look at the chords and techniques behind the hits, kicks off
today with “People, Let’s Stop The War”. The single first appeared in the 1971 Grand
Funk Railroad album, “E Pluribus Funk”.
The video series is free and can only be accessed online at MarkFarner.com.
Additional videos will roll out monthly. “I thought it was important to launch this video series to pay homage to all my musician friends around the world,” Farner said. “I’ve had many tell me they love my music and dig playing the songs, but I noticed that some play the wrong chords in their versions. I didn’t want to charge for these instructional videos because the freedom that music brings is exampled in the gift. They are for those musicians who desire to learn how to play the song from one who wrote it.”
About Mark Farner:
“You can’t talk about rock in the ‘70s without talking about Grand Funk Railroad.” –
David Fricke, Rolling Stone Magazine Mark Farner is the reason. As one of the founding members, lead singer, lead guitarist, and writer of over 90% of the Grand Funk music catalog, Farner has always been known as the energetic driving force on stage, the engine that pulled the original Grand Funk Railroad to the top of the charts. His soulful voice and power rock riffs fueled the Funk along with his atomic stage presence. His story and his imprint on music starts with Flint, Mich., and since 1969 from his humble beginnings and a blue-collar outlook, Farner has captained a global crusade for love, peace and freedom and became a rock ‘n’ roll icon.
More than 50 years later he commands the stage with the same intensity
performing epic hits that defined a generation: “I’m Your Captain (Closer to Home)”,
“Bad Time”, “Some Kind of Wonderful”, “Foot Stompin’ Music”, “Heartbreaker”,
“Locomotion”, “Mean Mistreater” and “We’re An American Band”. Farner has
amplified his remarkable career by decibels selling more than 30 million records
worldwide, including 16 gold and platinum albums.
