Playing What You Don’t Know

Advancing as a guitar player is never seen as a slow and steady climb. It is more like a series of steps with pretty long spaces in between. While it might seem like you don’t get better for weeks or months at a time, one breakthrough can lead to months of inspiration. Those are the … Read more

Looping Devices I Use

Many loopers available allow you to switch between loops, so you can make an entire song over pre-recorded verse/chorus patterns. This isn’t the way I use loops though.

The children of these types of parents do not even know what a guitar sounds like, much less what it is capable of, or the rich … Read more
