When my boys were playing roller and ice hockey, I coached their teams, head coaching for roller hockey and doing dry land training for ice hockey. Over the years, I had several players who would have a habit of getting down on themselves when they made a mistake, and it...

Fender FA 135 CE Concert Acoustic-Electric Guitar Summary: Part of the Fender Classic Design series, this lower-end model is a real surprise; especially in the sound department. Nice, low action, and a great feel. If you’re looking for a starter guitar or getting your child...

Try this: No effects. Not even reverb. Just you, your guitar, and your amp. No cheating. Plug your guitar directly into your amp, and if it has built-in reverb, turn it off. Another thing: No cranking up your gain to get into full overdrive. Set your amp such that you have...

I was browsing YouTube this afternoon for Peter Frampton videos from his days with Humble Pie; specifically, the 70’s version of “I Don’t Need No Doctor,” and comparing it to what he’s doing now. Amazing how he can still rock. While I watched one of the videos, I saw a...

Though I don’t post nearly as much as I used to, I still check my admin dashboard to see what articles have been the most active in the recent past. When I looked this morning, I saw that an article I wrote about Wyres strings and how they’re the best I’ve ever played. That...

Over the years, I’ve listened to countless people and have read article after article about good tone. I’ve joined in or lurked on message boards discussing tone and who knows or who has good tone. It’s all bullshit, and let me tell you why. First, by even saying the word...

I’ve had a couple of custom guitars made for me. One was under my direction (Goldie, by Saint Guitars, to the left), and the other was like it was made for me, even though I didn’t specify anything in the build (“Katie May,” by Perry Riggs of Slash L Guitars). And even...

Even after all these years, I still ask that question. I used to use a compressor for my solo acoustic gigs to tighten up my dynamic range, especially if I played in large, open spaces or a venue with high ceilings. But it also frustrated me a bit because even with light...

Peterson StroboClip HDTM High Definition Clip-On Strobe Tuner Summary: Peterson is the pioneer in strobe tuning and this new version of the highly-acclaimed StroboClip is a huge improvement over the original StroboClip which, in my opinion, just couldn’t be beaten. But add to...

Early this morning, I woke up to catch the Wimbledon Men’s final. Though I no longer play tennis, having played a little competitive tennis in my younger years, I have kept up with professional tennis. Growing up watching the likes of Jimmy Connors, Bjorn Borg and John McEnro...

I was reading a technical article on microservices architecture to corroborate points in a presentation I’ll be giving next week, and I ran across a reference to a saying I’d heard a long time ago: The First Law of Holes. It basically goes like this: “If you find yourself in...

To the left is “Pearl,” my 60th Diamond Anniversary Strat. Until recently, Pearl had been sitting in her case because I just wasn’t playing her. I actually would’ve sold her a long time ago, but that guitar is earmarked for my youngest child. One day, about 10 years ago, he w...

After I wrote my article on the Slow Secret Death of the Electric Guitar, it really got me thinking about guitar heroes of today. So… To start this discussion, I’m going to throw out a question: Can you name five guitar heroes that are under fifty years old? Forty years old?...

I won’t bore you with discussion… not yet… Just read this from the Washington Post: Why My Guitar Gently Weeps You can’t argue with the numbers, and you can’t argue with what’s happening in music these days. Hell! All you have to do is look at the proliferation of EDM and...

I love overdrive pedals. I have a bunch of them. But I realized that part of why I have so many has a lot to do with not really understanding how to set them up properly. I’d get an overdrive pedal because a demo I heard sounded great, or I loved how it was voiced. […]

I have a friend who played ice hockey as a kid in Canada, and years ago, as we were sharing stories about hockey (I used to coach), I mentioned that one of the toughest habits to ingrain into players was using two hands. My friend laughed at that and said, “You know how I...

I’ll admit it: I’ve become somewhat cynical about unsolicited product announcements; especially those from manufacturers of whom I’ve never heard. Part of it is due to the fact that I get a lot of them and I just don’t have the time to put out announcements. Another...
