On Your Mark...Get Set…GO! As every professional racer has heard once or twice in their lives, those words become rather famous and embedded in the mind…Somewhere along the way, everyone has a situation to occur where music becomes the outlet to heal, learn, or grow from…It is in this very moment that Fred Argir comes along with a new single, "Beggar's Anthem" to save us all---And it is another surprise for us here at Skope Magazine!
Minnesota based professional guitarist, singer, and songwriter, Fred Argir is no stranger to the Skope Magazine Family and comes back to us with some more feel-good Rock and Soul as this latest single is written from the soul! Kicking into overdrive, the familiar extended guitar solos sing a new sound! Somewhere in his life, the Late Great, Prince, crossed his path as it felt like "Beggar's Anthem" was about to begin in a crazy 1980s way: BUT, it gives us a wonderful Ozzy Osbourne, Black
Sabbath, and Eric Clapton
sequel with the signature intro and it works! Sometimes good music is what people need to release tension, stress, and pain.
With a solid introduction, a radio box-like voice interrupts the scene with an announcement—Thus "Beggar's Anthem" begins. At first listen, there is a mixture of heavy strumming, but Argir does something a little different this time around as he has placed more emphasis on the guitar being his voice! There is a struggle going on where someone needs to be saved or is being saved in "Beggar's Anthem," but the best part of the song, perhaps, might be the moments where the silent voices allow room for the guitar to play. Rarely do you see musicianship in music anymore and Argir has done excellent at showcasing his skills!
Great musicians are starting to rise to the musical occasion in today's music industry. Fred Argir just happens to be one of them and if you have not caught him action, he has enough bodies of work to choose from! Support him!
