Finally took out that pesky volume knob! I always have my Strats set up with just a master volume and tone, but I finally got around to just taking that first knob out of there! I think they put the volume knob in such a dumb place on Strats. Just my two cents, I know some cats love that super duper close knob. $$$
Two very cool, but very different Jazzmasters!
1. The traditional route. Classy.
2. The more modern route. I know some people hate on these so hard, but I actually think they’re really cool. For my own personal tastes though, I would put in some more PAF styled buckers instead of the wide range Fender buckers. SPACE AGE JAZZMASTER $$$
So one gig that I played back in Chicago was particularly memorable in that THERE WERE PEACOCKS ERRYWHERE! I felt like I was in Jurassic Park. It was both terrifying and fascinating. $$$
This is a video that I wanted to make about correct right hand technique for the plectrum style guitar. This was the kind of video I was always looking for when I first started flatpicking, so hopefully it can be of some use to any of you out there! $$$
One of the incredible highlights of my time in Chicago was seeing Julian Lage and Chris Eldridge at Space in Evanston. I have seen a lot of shows (like a ridiculous amount), and this was hands down the best live music I have ever seen. For the love of all that is good and holy, please do yourself a favor and go download their album here. It’s only 4 dollahs too. THAT’S LESS THAN THE PRICE OF ONE OF YER FANCY COFFEE DRINKS! $$$
